Pinkaholic Memebox unboxing

Memebox Pinkaholic beauty box review, unboxing
Pink is not my favourite colour. I prefer deep and/or sombre shades for clothing and decor, such as dark blue, violet, brown, beige and black - except for lipstick. I just love dusty pink, mauve and rose lipsticks and keep buying more in the same shades. Recently, I have begun loving rose and rose gold eyeshadows as well, and mauve-pink nail polish. So when Memebox released a Pinkaholic beauty box, I signed up, expecting a bunch of pink nail polishes, eyeshadows and lipsticks, and maybe a blush or two. A makeup-heavy box. I certainly did not expect a skincare-centric box!

Read on for my review and unboxing of the Pinkaholic beauty box from Memebox. 


The contents of the Pinkaholic Memebox are:

  1. Insobeau Perfect Deep Clean One-Step Cleansing Water 200ml
  2. Secret Key Color Recipe The Pink Cream 55g
  3. Awesome Glow Glow Balm 45g
  4. Style Y Glossy Pit Crayon Lipstick 01 Strawberry
  5. Style Y Color Fit Bling Bling Auto Crayon Shadow 01 Pink
  6. Shara Shara Aurora Liquid Highlighter 01 Pink
Memebox Pinkaholic beauty box review, unboxing
Six full-sized products, which seems to be the norm for most Memeboxes now. A quick look at each product.

Insobeau Perfect Deep Clean One-Step Cleansing Water 200ml

This is the only product in this box that I used - I ran out of the rather awful Clarins One-Step Facial Cleanser and needed something to get my makeup off very urgently, so I reached for this. It is definitely not as effective as the Neutrogena Eye Makeup Remover and I do struggle with waterproof mascara and long-stay lip colours.

Secret Key Color Recipe The Pink Cream 55g

This is an anti-ageing cream. Apparently it contains pink capsules that pop as you apply the cream on your face. I certainly did not expect this in the Pinkaholic box! I have anti-ageing cream saturation and this goes into my sell or swap box.

Awesome Glow Glow Balm 45g

This is a moisturising balm which can be used on the face, lips and hands and as a highlighter. It gives a very subtle glow to the skin. Don't get me wrong, but this was definitely not what I expected from this box.

Style Y Glossy Pit Crayon Lipstick 01 Strawberry

A lip crayon that is a couple of shades lighter than my beloved dusty rose, this can be used on the cheeks as well as the mouth. I prefer long-staying proper lipsticks to lip crayons - unless the crayon itself is a long-wearing, highly pigmented stain like the Lorac Pro Mattes.

Shara Shara Aurora Liquid Highlighter 01 Pink.

This highlighter and the lip crayon were the only two products I actually expected in this box. I love my Benefit Watt's Up and a Bourjois Delice Highlighter, both of which should last me forever, since I use highlighter very sparingly.

Style Y Color Fit Bling Bling Auto Crayon Shadow 01 Pink

A shimmery pink eyeshadow crayon. The only way this can be used on medium to deeper skintones is as a highlighter shade.

Summary and deals

I had expected a makeup-heavy box, replete with pink lipsticks, nailpolish, eyeshadow and definitely a blush. Instead, they ended up sending out mostly skincare, with one sorry excuse of a lip crayon and a highlighter. This is one Memebox I am NOT happy with. Apart from the Cleansing Water, which I began using as I told you, I have already sold everything in this box to a friend of mine, hoping she can find a use for everything. I mean, WHO expects skincare, rather than makeup, in a box called "Pinkaholic"?? I haven't been this disappointed after the 10 Minute Memebox.
Memebox has released a THIRD collaboration box with Cutiepiemarzia of YouTube. You can check it out here - the contents are already unboxed, so there is no danger of disappointments. Apart from that, you can check out all Memeboxes here, all Superboxes here and all Value Sets here. Also, do take a look at the Memeshop, where a review programme is currently running. Use code B0EB for $5 off your order.

    Oh heavens, what a disappointment! Like you, I would have expected a pink-themed boxy to have much more makeup than skincare. Boo!

    Exactly; this is the second Memebox where I cannot use anything. Hopefully the last disappointing one :(

    Lol if she backs out, I'll let you have first dibs! I've been extremely disappointed by so many lip products recently, thanks to misleading blog swatches, so I need to do a giant blog sale once I'm back from vacation.
