[Review] XO Memebox I'm Lipstick in #BC012, #MT007, #BC004, and #BC002 Review

Monday, October 19, 2015

Here's part 2 of the haul/review I'm doing of the XO Memebox line! Be sure to check out my review of the I'm eyeshadows as well :) Let's go ahead and move on to some of the lip products from Memebox.

You might be aware that they had an I'm Lipstick line that was packaged differently. These new lipsticks are supposed to be more opaque and have a better formula. Although I've never tried the original ones, let's go ahead and discuss these new versions.

Overall, I like the formula of these because they're nice and smooth. They're pretty hydrating, which works well on my ultra dry lips, and they're very pigmented so they don't apply blotchy. Also, keep in mind, none of my shades have shimmer or frost in them. They're all pretty balmy and they don't crease.

Let's get to the breakdown...
I'm Lipstick #BC012 Notting Hill
This is a great peach-based nude. It reminds me so much of my Etude House Color in Liquid Lips in BE101. This applies nice and smooth and unlike some nudes, looks nice and moisturizing. It doesn't get the gross cracked look nude-ish lips tend to get. I'd definitely say this is a great "nude" for those of you with darker skin tones because it doesn't wash you out!
I'm Lipstick in #MT007
This is easily my fave out of the bunch I have! I've actually almost used up half the tube and I've only had these for a month or so! This is a great mauve that doesn't look overly purple. I'd say this is the ultimate "my lips but better" type of color!
I'm Lipstick in #BC004
This is a pretty average pink color, although it's a bit more neon than I was expecting. Obviously, to me, this isn't a bad thing because I love me a nice pop of color every once and while :) Has a nice glossy finish, which provides a comfortable wear!
I'm Lipstick in #BC002 Ultra Violet
When I saw the swatch of this on the website, I HAD to get it. Look how great of a color this is! Obviously, this is not for the faint at heart. It's a "WHAM in your face" kind of color and comes off just like it looks in the tube! I love that they had more alternative colors that you don't see from every brand. 

Overall, these lipsticks are great! I mean, at $16 a piece, I'd hope they'd be! Since they're rivaling prices like MAC, I'd say they're really nice but kind of steep. I do love the packaging, however, and I think it looks super classy.

[Review] XO Memebox I'm Eyeshadow in PB300, PB304, PB306, PB309, PB311, PS305, and PG302


Well, I'm back from Korea! I'm ready to hit the ground running bringing you guys a ton of new posts and videos on this website and on my youtube channel, The Beauty Breakdown! Have you subscribed yet? Well, you should because there's TONS of fun stuff coming up. I promise you won't be disappointed.

Anyways, I'm getting a little distracted because I'm so excited about everything that's coming up. I wanted to talk to you guys also a bit about the new XO Memebox I'm Eyeshadows, I'm Lipstick, and I'm Liquid Lips. Altogether, I have 7 of the eyeshadows, 4 of the lipsticks, and 1 of the liquid lips and in this post, I'll be showing you the eyeshadows! If you want to read about the lip products, the post is finished! These are technically not new since they have been available in Korea, but they're new for us in the United States. Now, without further adieu, here's the review! (By the way, this is going to be a super picture heavy post!)

Let's get to the breakdown...

Let's go ahead and do a quick overview of these eyeshadows! They're formulated in Korea and they're the in-house brand of Memebox. There are three different finished offered: matte, shimmer, and glitter. I have all three kinds of I'll mention which is which as we go along. 

I'm Eyeshadow #PB300 Creamy Beige
This is a matte finish that pretty much works well for everyone. I've been pleasantly surprised with Memebox's matte eyeshadows because I'm sure we all know, matte eyeshadows can be really hit or miss. Sometimes they're really great, and other times, they don't show up on your skin. Despite this being a light color, it is nice, pigmented and try smooth. 
I'm Eyeshadow #PB311 Daisy Deep Coral 
This is a matte, medium brown with a heavy orange undertone. In my opinion, it's the same color as adobe clay so I love how this compliments looks and how it shows up on yellow-based skin tone. Again, it's soft, smooth, and pigmented.
I'm Eyeshadow #PB309 Classic Brown
This is pretty much your run-of-the-mill crease color. A nice cool-toned brown that would be great for smoking out a dark look yet neutral enough to be able to pull of a natural look. 
I'm Eyeshadow #PB306 Brown Brick
This is my favorite of all of my matte eyeshadows. Such a unique color and again, this color looks great on my yellow-toned skin. Although, now that I think about it, I think this would look great on pretty much everyones' skin tone! Look how pigmented it is too! I actually took this with me to Korea and pretty much used it the entire trip in my crease!
I'm Eyeshadow #PS305 Sparkling Hazel
 I haven't tried as many shimmer finishes from this line as I have mattes (obviously) but this one is great. Doesn't have too much fall out, it's true to color and I really enjoy this color. It's a bit of a coppery pink! In real life, it has a little more of a copper undertone than it's showing in the picture.
I'm Eyeshadow #PG304 Blondie Brown
 The glitter eyeshadows also have a very smooth texture. I like these because they don't have too much fall out (still there but not terrible!). These are SO shimmery! I wouldn't necessarily even call them glittery because in my head, when I hear glitter, I think chunky glitter. But since this is so smooth, I just think it's like an ultra-shimmer :) This color is a gold with a pink undertone.
I'm Eyeshadow #PG302 Allure Marine
 Ok, I'm in love with this color! I think it's SO beautiful! I'm so happy I picked this one out because it does not disappoint! Like all the other eyeshadows, it's very smooth and pigmented. Like the other glitter eyeshadow, the glitters are very finely milled so it's not chunky whatsoever. Look how pretty :D

Well, I hope you guys enjoyed this review if you're looking into these eyeshadows. I'm very pleasantly surprised with the quality, packaging (which has an awesome little mirror!), and the price point. Let me know if you guys have tried any shades and which ones you've been enjoying. Hope you're all well and healthy :)
