Rivecowe Plenty Volume Mascara 10ml
Full Size Product : 10ml [ $15 ]

Product Description
Creating instant oversized volume and curl, this revolutionary formula nourishes your lashes with a unique formula that strengthens and smooths for long-lasting volume. 

How To Use
Curl lashes using an eyelash curler. Brush mascara from root to top. Apply multiple coats for ultra volumized lashes.

Not much to really say about this mascara. It does the job it's meant for. I don't find it to be much different than the mascaras I use on a daily basis other than the fact that it's smaller than most mascaras. 

dearberry Toc Toc Blusher 5g
Full Size Product : 5g [ $9 ]

Product Description
This easy to use blusher creates a subdued color finish that creates a more 3 dimensional face shape for the look of sharper jaw line and smaller-sized face. Sebum-controlling powder absorbs sweat and oil for the look of a radiant glow.

How To Use
Apply it to the skin with a gentle light touch, using the built-in puff attached to the case.

Award for least favorite item in this box goes to this blusher, which really isn't a blusher since I got this in 01 Moonshine, so it's more of a highlighter. The powder gets everywhere if you're not careful with it. This powder is not travel friendly. Another thing I want to note is how opaque this is. It's not. In order for me to get a goo swatch, I had to pat multiple times and the powder flew everywhere. This does have a nice soft glitter effect, but I'm unsure as to if I will use it any further. 

Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer 10ml
Full Size Product : 10ml [ $7 ]

Product Description
A creamy-textured primer to be applied before eye makeup application to increase pigment adherence and lasting power, and to mattify and smooth out skin texture. Suitable for all skin types especially for sensitive skin. 

How To Use
Gently dab over your lids and blend it in.

If I was comparing this to a higher ended eye primer I use, this would definitely be right up behind it. This primer works well and I do find the eye shadows lasting longer with this on than without any primer at all. 

Etude House Tear Drop Liner 8g
Full Size Product : 8g [ $7 ]

Product Description
Add extra sparkling glitters just under your eyes (which we call the 'tear line' in Korea) to create a sophisticated yet dewy eye makeup. Etude House's Tear Drop Liner comes in three different shades of glitters - white silver, pearl silver, and bronze gold.

How To Use
Draw in along your 'tear line' (where your lower eyelashes are) to finish off eye makeup.

                  I've wanted one of these ever since I started reviewing Korean Cosmetics. Why, all this time, I haven't bought one? I don't really know. I'm happy to have one in my makeup arsenal though! I got the white silver option and I'm really loving how it looks. There are flecks of reds, blues, and greens along the white, sparkly liner. It doesn't dry very quickly and I don't recommend applying this after mascara. This definitely helps in the creation of the ever-so-cute aegyosal!

Color My World Eye Shadow Palette 8g
Full Size Product : 8g [ $36 ]

Product Description
A day-to-night palette with three neutral, yet glamorous shades that blend beautifully and mimic the shimmering texture of sandy beaches. Color World is a high-end brand sold only in department stores and this specific palette was designed as a special limited F/W collected for our newly laughing collaboration box.

How To Use
Apply directly to eyelids and blend it in for a desired intensity.

What a surprise to get this palette in this box. The colors are right up my alley as well. They're all beautiful neutrals and can be worn any day of the week. The palette is magnetized and I find it doesn't come apart easily, so this palette could be travel safe. My only concern is how much the middle color comes out in the pan, all over the palette, without using it. It may not be travel safe because of that. I'd fear the shadow would get everywhere. Nonetheless, this is an awesome shadow palette. Used with primer, these shadows stay nice and opaque.

ideeB Sweet Gelish Eyeliner 03 Gold Brown 3g
Full Size Product : 3g [ $9 ]

Product Description
Create countless looks with gel pencil formulas are precise pigmented application, inner rim lining, long-wear, contouring, and subtle to smoky looks.

How To Use
Glide on gel pencil eyeliner along the lower lash line, upper lash line and corners for the look you desire.

Not too thrilled about this being a pencil liner as I really don't like using them [ Memebox tends to send out a lot of gel liners ]. However, the staying power of this gel eye liner is amazing. I was able to create a very natural winged liner with this. Unfortunately, this isn't an auto pencil, so you must use a sharpener with this.

MISS AGE Essential Lip Rpuge 01 Pure Red 8.5ml 
Full Size Product : 8.5g [ $17 ]

Product Description
A rich, full-color lip rouge with long lasting colors and shine.

How To Use
For a perfect lip shape: start in the middle of the lips, smoothing out to the corners of the mouth. For a glossy effect, apply a touch of clear gloss over your lipstick.

No doubt the color is beautiful and perfect for the fall and winter months. I find it starts to dry out my lips after prolonged wear, which I'm really not fan of. Applying some chapstick after an hour or so can greatly help with this since the staying power of this lippie is good.

good'p Madeca Cream 20ml
Full Size Product : 20ml [ $24 ]

Product Description
Ready your skin to its perfect, silky condition before dolling up with the Madeca Cream, and you'll be able to experience how important pre-makeup skincare is! Containing loads of natural ceramide ferments and titrated extracts from centella asiatica plus utilizing good'p's uniquw pre-lipid technology, the Madeca Cream absorbs fast and deep into the skin, and works to smooth out fine wrinkles as well as brighten up the overall complexion. 

How To Use
Evenly apply the cream over your face and let it absorb. Mix it in with a BB cream or a CC cream to add extra moisture to your base makeup.

This may be my new favorite face primer. I've noticed with a lot of American brand primers that my skin tends to get flaky and dry. I find using this primer before makeup application, the foundation goes on smooth and my skin doesn't flake up as much, and I have my flaky days. The tube did seem a little light and I was kind of worried about that, but this primer is very light on the skin.

Shara Shara Color Control Cream SPF50+ PA++ No.2 Natiral Beige 40ml
Full Size Product : 40ml [ $24 ]

Product Description
Balance out uneven skin time and add extra radiance to your complexion with Shara Shara's CC Cream! Despite the fact that it comes in No.2 Natural Beige, this CC Cream will only color control and work to bring out the most naturally glowing complexion, and thus can be used universally by all skin colors.

How To Use
Apply an adequate amount of the CC cream evenly over your face and pat in for full adherence. Mix it in with a booster or a moisturizer like the Madeca Cream to create that supple, dewy complexion.

Okay, so I don't honestly think this would be the best CC cream for darker skin tones [ for all my beautiful lovies who have a darker skin tone than my pasty whiteness, let me know if I'm wrong about this ]. Aside from what the description says, I found this CC cream to adequately cover my imperfections quite well. Possibly a new favorite. The CC cream starts out white with small specks in it and once you start to blend the cream into your skin, it does seem to take on the natural tone of your skin. 

Out of the three boxes in the bundle I bought, this is my favorite. Vagabond Youth really put some thought into this box. I really enjoy boxes with a set theme or a general point to make and this one was a full face of makeup for the fall. [ This statement doesn't apply to the Global Memeboxes, as they have no set theme ]. I do plan on doing a full tutorial with this box and how I would use it. Vagabond Youth has one up already, but I would like to showcase how I would use some of these items. 

Hope you've enjoyed this unboxing!
Have a lovely evening!
