It’s another glorious day out here in Portland, Oregon! I have just received Superbox #75 City Girl box as well as two other boxes that will have their own respective posts. I was a little let down by half of the Skin Food and the Face Shop box last week. But as long as I like at least 3 products from each box…I feel good about a box. Hopefully these new boxes restores the deep love I have for Memebox!
So lets jump into this one. The contents of Superbox #75 City Girl are as follows:
1. Migabee Verbana Cream 50ml ($29…I couldn’t find it online for this price. The lowest price I found was $31.00)
First thoughts: I really dig the logo. Packaging is always very important to me and part of that is a memorable logo. This one is cute. And hey! “Migabee’s limited Verbana line helps to heal mental & physical exhaustion, to give energy at the same time, and to have smooth and moisten skin.” Where was this during my midterms? I was definitely exhausted then! I can’t pinpoint it’s scent. I mean it clearly has one…and I know I’ve smelled it before but I just can’t put my tongue on it (or should I say my nose…haha.. that was it for my corny joke of the week).
How To Use: Apply evenly over skin both day and night.
First Thoughts: Ahhh Mizon! This item was spoiled for us on the Memebox Facebook page and instantly this boxes “Wow” factor went up for me. I love love love Mizon! It comes in a cute glass bottle type thing and the applicator is basically the same as a nail polish brush. No lie, I instinctively wanted to apply it on my nails. It is a nice color, but I did notice that in the 3 time I have opened it today, I keep making a mess on both my hands as well as the bottle. But that might just be a me problem.
How to Use: Apply the liquid brush alone or mixed with a foundation or a shimmering booster in a 1:2 ratio. It can also be applied on lips as a lip stain.
First Thoughts: Cute. I can’t point out a specific smell on this one until it’s actually applied. When on my face…it smells faintly (really faint though like it’s not at all off putting) like sunscreen. It almost looks like a kids lotion.
How to Use: Apply the primer at the very first stage of base makeup to smooth and prep skin it can also be utilized for a fix-up by mixing it in with foundation or BB cream.
First Thoughts: This stuff goes on like icing on a cake. I’m not trying to make a cute little “oh it goes on super easy” metaphor. It really reminds me of cake icing that you buy in a tube. The pink is very pink. The orange is very orange. The beige is beige. A little goes a loooooong way here as it is very pigmented. But according to the info card, this seems like an all in one makeup set. Apparently this stuff does everything and can go anywhere. Rather than applying with fingertips, I would use a brush as it left my fingers pretty friggin’ pink.
How to Use: Shake well before application. Squeeze a small amount of the formula and apply to lips, cheeks, or eyes, under or over makeup using a brush or fingertips. Layer under powder blushes, bronzers, lip stain, and lip glosses for added intensity. Mix and match the 3 shades to your liking.
First Thoughts: Honey. I missed out on the honey boxes so I have been crossing my fingers that a honey based product would come my way. I don’t know if it’s the whole BEE honey thing but the Migabee logo reminds me of the Burt’s Bees logo.
How to Use: Lather the oil cleanser enough to create abundant foam and massage into face, hair, and body. Rinse off with lukewarm water.
Final Thoughts: All around good box. There wasn’t anything that felt like it brought the value of the box down. I am very happy about the Migabee Oil Soap, the Verbana Cream, and the Mizon tint. Yup, that’s three. This box is a success in my book.
The box cost: $23.00.
Value according to Memebox: $129.00.
Value according to my prices: $132.55
