Unboxing & Review: Get It Beauty Memebox 6th Global Edition 겟잇뷰티박스 by 미미박스

 *memebox discount codees down below*

I'm so sorry for the lack of posts! School takes away a lot of my time and since I'm currently sick, I haven't been able to think of any tutorials or reviews to do as I have not bought any new products recently.

On to the review!
For beautybox reviews, posts are VERY subjective. The only thing that a reviewer can objective talk about is the service. Like always, MEMEBOX has very fast and efficient customer service. On the webpage of each MEMEBOX, they include a date to tell you when they would start shipping.

The MEMEBOX 6th Global Edition was shipped out on the 19th of February and I received it today, on the 24th of February. For your information, I live in Sydney Australia and the boxes are either shipped from their office in Seoul, South Korea or California, US (their headquarters)

The box arrived in a safe condition, with a thick pick wooden box and bubble wrap. Much like the other previous boxes (Review on 3rd global edition and 4th global edition here)

The boxes cost $23.00 US with free express shipping. They used to cost $21.00 but shipping was $6.75.

First Impressions:

When I opened the box, I was confused. I was missing my information card? They usually have a card telling you all the information you need to know about the products in English. But that's okay, I can always google it!

Unboxing & Review: 4th Global Edition Get It Beauty Box by Memebox 겟잇뷰티박스 by 미미박스

Thank you for the positive response on my last review and unboxing of the popular Korean beautybox Get It Beauty Memebox! I'm back with a review and unboxing of the newest available one, the 4th Global edition!

Last month's 3RD GLOBAL EDITION MEMEBOX review here!

I got an email on the 29th of January that the 4th edition box was getting shipped today. Much excitement was in the air since I absolutely LOVED the 3rd global edition beautybox. My expectations were high since they also said that this box would include even MORE products than their last 3. I absolutely could not wait to get my hands on it! And it didn't take long to come here at all. Their shipping took 5 days! 3 days if you don't count the weekends.

So in total: The product was shipping on Wednesday the 29th of January and arrived in my hands safely on Monday the 3rd of February. The Get It Beauty Box by Memebox only ships express! And your signature would be needed at the door. Super!

One difference between the outside packaging was the colour. In the 3rd edition, it was pink while this month's was black.

Again the box is surrounded by bubble wrap. I never have to worry about the product when it's getting shipped, I know it is in good hands! And I just have to say that the packaging for the products in the box is amazing- we'll get to that in a short while.

Now the first thing I took notice of was the smell. Now don't run away, it wasn't that it smelt off but I was worried that one of the products might have spilled. The smell of something like tea tree was really strong, I wondered if there was tea tree oil (there wasn't) in the box this month. I've always wanted to try it for my acne...

Like on most beauty boxes, there is a card with all the information about the products on it. If you're afraid of not knowing what the products are for because it's all Korean, fear not!

Review: Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher in #6 Grapefruit Jelly (에뛰드 하우스 러블리 쿠키 블러셔 6호 그레이프후르츠 젤리)

For school, the most I'll ever wear is CC cream, lip balm/tint and a good natural blush colour. I've been trying to find one that is pink and coral, and the product that stood out to me was the Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher in #6 Grapefruit Jelly. This shade also has the most positive reviews to my knowledge.

What is it?

This smooth and creamy blush contains sebum-control powder and coating pigment. 
Silky soft powder adds a touch of fresh and lovely colours to your cheeks, brightening your complexion.
Includes soft cushion applicator puff with bow to dispense the right amount of blush.
