I present to you...MEMEBOX! Memebox is the top selling beauty box in Korea and last November they started shipping to the United States. If you've ever been curious about Korean products, this is a great way to try them out! Each box contains 6-8 (or more!) products, many of which are full size. It's $23 for the box & $6.99 for shipping. They actually upgrade your shipping for free to express shipping and it only takes a few days to get here from Korea. My latest box shipped out January 30th and I got it today. Pretty fantastic! Also, you get a $5 credit for your first order and you can get another $5 credit if you e-mail their customer service and let them know you were sent by Mischief Managed Makeup. :)
This one is actually NOT a subscription so you just have to watch for the new box to go live on the site and then order. And order quickly, because these babies are selling out! Right now they're pre-ordering for edition #7 which ships in early March, but each previous box has sold out in only about a day.
So far I have editions #2, #3, & #4 and I'll be receiving #5-2 & #6 once they start shipping. There are a LOT of products in these boxes and they're things that are completely new to me, so it's going to take me a while to try everything & write up a thorough review. However, I'm going to put together a preview post for each box I've received so far just so you can see what's in the boxes and decide for yourself if you're interested in snagging one (or two or, you know, five).
Without further ado...here's the 2nd edition of Memebox: (all product information is from the card insert inside the box)
The whole box. Seriously, when's the last time you got a beauty box this jam packed with product? There are seven items in this box and two of them are full sized. :)
