Unboxing: Superbox #58 Lipstick Box

This week we are skipping the nails in order to put in Memebox Mondays! Okay don't worry this isn't going to become a thing but I definitely have enough coming to me that I could! I don't think I've ever mentioned this before but the price of the box I always list the full retail price but I always buy my boxes using discount codes, memepoints and take advantage of the VIP sales so I don't ever actually pay that much. It just occurred to me now that it looks like I'm blowing thousands of dollars on these boxes but I'm not!

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 two 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 is the Superbox #58 Lipstick Box which is the other box I got along with my Cafe Box. I'm not crazy about makeup boxes but this promised to give 10 full sized lip products! I just had to try it out! I tried to get this up sooner but I really wanted to be able to provide swatches but anyways, here it is! This cost $27 + $3.50 shipping for a total of $30.50.
From the website:

This is for all you lipstick junkies out there!

You can go through the rest of this month with the same sheer balm that has become part of your daily makeup ritual, or you can throw caution to the wind and try to something totally new! Team Memebox has hand-picked these super rich, super fun, super beautiful lipstick shades that will become your new lip favorites! From unabashed bold hues to classic shades, you’ll be ready to sport some vicious lips with these hot lippies from top-of-the-line Korean brands!
This box shipped October 2nd and technically would have arrived on my doorstep October 3rd!! But no one was home to sign for it so DHL wasn't able to bring it until the 6th. Boo. But still basically overnight shipping for express?? If this addiction is going to keep going I think I need to always just go for the value packs now...Also side note it promised 10 but in the end there were only 6 and they were all lipsticks. I know in my cafe box unboxing I said I was waiting to do this because I wanted to do swatches but then I realized I probably wouldn't want to keep most of these so sorry no swatches!
Shara Shara Feminine Glossy Lipstick in Flower Peach | Retail: $12
This color is gorgeous! Both of the options looked great but I'm happy I got this one. The packaging reminds me of the Dior Addict lipsticks, but this one was a hit and I'll keep it.
Enesti Bijou Bijou Lipstick in Edge Red | Retail: $12
I didn't want to take this out of the packaging but it looks like a classic red on the card. I have a lot of reds so this will probably get passed on and that's why I don't want to open it.
Cheek Room Lipstick in Pink Brown | Retail: $12
This actually looks like a great nude that will work for me. I think I will hold onto this one and test it out. Nudes are hard for me because most of them look too pale against my skin, or they borderline being an awkward brown. This one has a hint of pink so I'm hoping it will work.
Karadium Movie Star Lipstick in Royal Pink | Retail: $29
This is a SHOCKING pink. Definitely not a color for me and despite the beautiful packaging it will be better off in a different home.
Hope Girl Milky Balm Lipstick in Nude Beige | Retail: $22
This color seems a little too brown for me but I think it might be a good base to layer lip gloss over so I'll keep it. Also the leopard packaging is just so cute I just want to keep this to display in my lippie holder!
I Myss 3D Cinema Transform Lipstick in Pretty Blue | Retail: $14
Wow. I have no words. Seriously any other color would have been better than this...I mean if I wanted to dress up as someone who froze to death for Halloween....

For $30.50 I received six lipsticks that are valued at $101. The value is definitely there but I wish I didn't pick up this box. Not only was it misleading where they promised 10 products and only delivered 6, they removed that line from the description so I just look crazy with my claims. I am pleased that there was only one red in the box so I got a wide range of colors I don't already own but in the end I took a gamble and got colors that don't work so well with my skintone.
