Unboxing: Superbox #43 2014 F/W Colors

I went a little Memebox crazy lately, little being a gross understatement, and I can directly blame Rachel over at Harlot Beauty for this because she posted so many unboxings that it got me hooked on the idea of getting my own. I got a lot of them so expect to see many more unboxings in the months to come as they trickle in!

For those that don't know what I'm talking about Memebox is a Korean beauty non-subscription box that sells boxes of surprise products curated with different themes in mind straight from Korea! Like I mean your box is shipped to you FROM Korea! These are great deals because boxes typically run between $19 - $39 (there are more expensive ones) but the value of the boxes are usually double and often triple the price you pay! There are three main kinds of boxes:

Memebox: The original box comes with a mix of 4-8 full sized products and deluxe samples.
Special: Like the original box it comes with 4-8 full sized products and deluxe samples but each of these boxes has its own theme for special occasions or events.
Superbox: Comes with their own theme and contains only full sized products.
This one that came in for me is the Superbox #43 2014 F/W Colors and it was packed with full size makeup products in the color trends for the upcoming season. This one cost $23 + $6.99 in shipping for a total cost of $29.99. 
From the website:
Fresh off the runway makeup trends can be daunting, no doubt. So we made it simple and easy to find your best 2014 F/W runway makeup colors for non-scary, everyday Korean looks!
We browsed through endless Pinterest and Instagram likes for hours looking for the hottest autumn makeup colors 0f 2014. We swooned over bold jewel tones, delicate pastel shades, just bitten berry colors for eye to lip and nail beauty trends, and finally came up with the perfect fall trend color concoction! Here’s what we fell in love with!
African Violet: The beauty of purplely violet is that there’s a shade that works on every skin tone. From eyes to nails and lips, violet is a universally flattering shade this fall!
Hemlock Green: Embrace your inner free-spirited ocean lover chick with this ultra refreshing hue.
Just Bitten Berry: Make a loud statement with look at me bold berry hues this fall
This box shipped August 19th and reached my doorstep on August 28th! It was actually a nice surprise to come home to because the tracking information had still listed it as sitting at customs in LAX. I chose standard shipping which they said would take 10-20 business days so I was pleased to receive it in just 8!
First up are the DD'ell Stay Forever Gel Eye Pencil in Twilight Purple and Garden Light. These pencils are super creamy and beautiful in a sparkly purple and emerald green. This is the year when I want to start experimenting with color eyeliners on a everyday basis so these two are perfect on trend colors to try!
Retail Value: $14 each, $28 for both
Another product from from the same brand, this is the DD'ell Illumination Eye Shadow in Shimmer Green. This is a lovely shimmery mossy green and is surprisingly not a color (at least a nicely pigmented one) I have in any palette. Honestly I can't see myself wearing this and this might be something I gift (or giveaway) but I'll hold onto it for now and figure it out.
Retail Value: $11
This Shara Shara Fairy's Perfume Nail in Lilac Bora is a beautiful light purple with a pearlescent finish. This bottle is just too cute and the color is totally my kind of shade. This will be great on my toes or fingers!
Retail Value: $4

The Witch's Pouch Love Me Blusher in Sexy Swan was one of the spoilers they included and is what convinced me to get this box. What I wasn't expecting for it to be HUGE! This color is the perfect natural flush with a slight sparkle to it and I'm excited to add this into my collection.
Retail Value: $14
There was another Witch's Pouch product in this box and this was the POPO Lipstick and I got the color Burgundy Wine. It was a choice between this one and a purple and I was really hoping for the wine so I was thrilled I got it. This reminds me of my favorite MAC lipstick Diva, but it's more of a buildable sheer so easier to control for a less dramatic day time look.
Retail Value: $21 
The last item and probably what I'm least excited about is this YADAH Angel Lip Tint in Red Wine-Gromwell. If you followed my Project Pan you know that tints just aren't my favorite thing. This will absolutely get passed on because this bottle is huge and I just can't imagine liking this.
Retail Value: $8
Overall this was a great experience for my first Memebox. I definitely was more interested in skincare products but for a purely all makeup box I was pleased with the variety and items selected. In the end I paid $29.99 for the box and received $86 worth of products. If you're interested in picking up a box (or boxes!) you can use some of the coupon and discount codes below!

    1. I took one look at your giveaway and was like don't even THINK about entering it because I do not need that many Meme goodies in my house!!

      This definitely made me more excited about fall (didn't think that could happen!), I had to "lose" my PayPal password to stop myself from ordering anymore I'm up to 11 now...:S
