SoothingSista x Memebox Palette

I've heard of Memebox circling around Youtube but I never had the inclination to buy anything from their site. I figured they were strictly a subscription service and I'm just not interested in subscribing to a monthly box at the moment. However, as I was watching one of my favorite youtubers, SoothingSista, she mentioned that she had created her very own eye shadow palette that is available for purchase on the Memebox website!

I knew I had to check it out and upon arriving to the site I impulsively purchased the palette. 

I LOVE when I get packages with handwritten notes. I feel like it adds just a little more personalization when someone takes the time to write something.

These colors are gorgeous and unlike any other eye shadows I have. I still haven't bought the Naked 3 palette that is filled with rose tinted shades, but I felt like this quad would be the perfect introduction to pink-based shadows.

The Sutro and Valencia are matte while Candy Rain and Bae Area are shimmer/glitter. The matte shadows don't have as much pigmentation as I'd like, unfortunately. I feel like if you are tan or have a darker complexion, they will not show up on you well. I feel like I am relatively pale and once applied you can hardly tell I have any on. It's EXTREMELY neutral.

The bottom two shadows are more pigmented, but I really recommend using a glitter primer for Bae Area as it's very glittery and tends to have quite a lot of fallout. I'd recommend using a product like Fix+ on your shadow brush when applying these and also using a primer so you can get the most out of the colors.

Other than those two things I really like this palette. It's perfect and compact to take on the go and it's great to create a simple everyday look with. The pricing isn't too bad in my opinion either. The palette is $17, I found a coupon code but I don't think it's available anymore, sorry!

This palette is definitely worth buying if you're interested in the shades and want to support a lovely youtuber!

  11. i like palettes that have 2 matching shades in matte and glitter! great purchase and agree on the hand written thing, i tend to purchase a lot more often when i feel like a company cares for the customers!

  12. looks cool, love the gel cream I heard good reviews about it


  13. Memebox is awesome! I like it because it's a pay-as-you-go program, not a subscription. <3
