I've always been slightly obsessed with makeup (as seen from my boxes and boxes filled with makeup at home), and so I was super excited to be chosen as one of Memebox's ambassador. Memebox is an online Korean beauty retailer that has a ton of skincare, beauty, and makeup brands and products on their site. They even have different types of boxes that you can buy for the full package! What I've noticed as well is that Memebox also works with a lot of big names and companies to create their own makeup look. I got to test Soothing Sista's eyeshadow palette that was released recently.
Upon opening the package, it was obvious that the products were packed with care- the palette was bubble wrapped, there was pink shredded paper with two samples, and a small note from Memebox. Love the packaging of the palette! Super smooth and simple on the outside and the perfect size as an on-the-go palette; I actually have it in my purse right now!
There were two matte and two shimmery eyeshadow colors inside. The colors really reminded me of the Naked 3 palette as they were more rosy and natural looking. The top two, Sutro and Valencia, were the two lighter, matte colors while the bottom two, Candy Rain and Bae Area, were more shimmery. While the pigments for Sutro, Valencia, and Candy Rain were really nice, the Bae Area was a little more flaky and harder to apply. The Candy Rain was a dark mauve shimmery color that was my favorite, where the Bae Area was a shimmery light pink that I used as a highlight under my eyes.
I started out with eyeshadow primer and Candy Rain on my lid, and then blended out to the crease with Valencia and Sutro for a more subtle look. I then highlighted with Bae Area under my eyes, on the inner corner, and over the lid to add a little shimmer, and finished off with eyeliner and mascara! The Bae Area did come off when I put it over the lid though so I would just recommend using it as a highlight on the inner corner. This palette for me was more of a natural, everyday look that I can wear anytime. Loving the soft, neutral look it created on my eyes!
