Review: Memebox Special #17 K-Style Cosmetics

When I ordered Memebox Special #17 K-Style Cosmetics I didn't know what to expect. It turned out to be an all makeup box, and a pretty good one!

The box itself was on the small side for a Memebox, about the size of the info card.

The description for this box read:

Korea has beauty on lock, and this K-Style Box is bringing you all the latest beauty trends straight from Seoul!

Ever wondered how Korean celebrities look so perfectly gorgeous on screen without looking like they have pounds of makeup caked onto their face? Now, you can recreate whatever K-style look you desire with just the tools in this box! Whether you want to go for that signature Korean “no-makeup” look with perfect porcelain skin, youthful aegyo-sal eyes and gradient baby lips, or want to glam up your style with your favorite K-POP idol makeup trends, this box is a must have for Korean beauty addicts!

Unbox all the hottest beauty trends in Korea!

I definitely see makeup here, so it looks like the description reads true. 

The info cards shows 7 full size products!

There are two eyeliners included in this box:

RiRe Luxe Auto Gel Eyeliner Champagne ($14)
RiRe Lux Auto Gel Liner Choco Brown ($14)

I cannot find much about this brand online, including how to buy more of these right now. I don't know if they make more colors of their gel eyeliners but these two are high quality pencils. They also make a lip manicure that is getting great reviews. 

I love the color choices and the easy glide these pencils have.They are also twist-up style, so you can take these in your bag without a sharpener.

Secret Key Sweet Glam Tint Glow ($24)

This is a lightly tinted but very moisturizing product.

They come in three colors, I got Juicy Orange. I found it on ebay for only $9.99 + $2.50 shipping.

Shara Shara Feminine Blusher ($7)

There were two possible color options: Warm Apricot and Soft Coral. I received Warm Apricot. 

This is not only adorable but totally convenient. Most powder blushes apply with a brush, so I tend to take my cream and stick blushes/tints out with me. With this little puff I can have a wearable powder blush that's easy and convenient to apply!

Awesome Aqua Radiance CC Cream ($29)

Totally not surprised to have a CC or BB cream, since the box description said this: 

Whether you want to go for that signature Korean “no-makeup” 

look with perfect porcelain skin,

These type of creams do tend to look more discreet than classic foundation. No wonder they are such a hit in Korea! From the description:

This CC Cream covers up unsightly blemishes and evens out the skin tone. It discreetly corrects and perfects the complexion while providing a naturally bright and healthy glow! Use it daily for light coverage, and to brighten the overall look of skin, and prevent pre-mature wrinkling.

Bbia Pigment ($5). This was the spoiler item. There were three possible color variations: Mild, Sour, and  Sweet. I got Sweet.

These are BEAUTIFUL and cheap! I need more of these.

A'PIEU Full of Nature Mascara ($3). This is quite small for a full size mascara. The info card says "Various grain, berry, and flower extracts help maintain healthy eyelashes". This seems more like a treatment/mascara, cool!

Another great box from Memebox! Great value and on theme. I love every product in this box and really wish I grabbed the K-Style 2 but it sold out just before I received the K-Style 1.

Hope this was helpful!
