Because why not?

Blogmas - Memebox Special #56 K-Style 4

10 December 2014
Time for another K-Style unboxing, this is the 4th in the series and I have to admit that it's the worst I've received.

K-Style are makeup only boxes and I've been quite happy with the ones I've received so far but this one really infuriated me.

If you would like to know more about Memebox you can check out my Memebox Info page.

Before I get on to the contents I just want to give you a little background.. The OMG, K-Style and My Cute Wishlist boxes come with the option of buying them as a bundle, which means you get cheaper upgraded shipping, so it's a good deal. Around the time of this bundles release another collaboration box was released called Cutie Pie Marzia 2 and the contents were spoiled from day one so you could see exactly what you would be getting in the box, the contents of that box were down right shit, there were 2 saving grace items but the rest was filler junk that I didn't want so obviously I avoided buying the box along with most other people, they had 5 thousand of those boxes to get rid of, when they weren't selling they discovered other ways of moving the excess stock.

Months later my OMG/K-Style/My Cute Wishlist bundle was delivered and I found a bunch of crappy CPM2 junk in my boxes. *Engage rage mode*

#1 Revecen Volumising Mascara 7ml Full Size RRP $26
I'm never annoyed to receive mascara, I always enjoy trying new ones, I always have a plentiful supply of fresh ones for my kit and I never have to go out and make the painstaking choice of choosing one in the stores. I am totally ok with this.

#2 Shara Shara Petite Friend Matte Lip Crayon 3g Full Size RRP $11
Randomly selected from Pure Pink, Neon Pink, Neon Orange and Salmon Orange
Received: Neon Pink.
This is an item from the CPM2 box, I do not want. I'm not even going to open this because matte lip products just don't work for me unless I put in major lip maintenance effort and I barely have time to even pee when I need to let alone worry about how my matte lipstick is making my lips look. This is being given away to someone who loves matte lip products.

#3 Shara Shara Triple Shine Colour Shadow 2g Full Size RRP $15
Randomly selected from Pink Violet, Yellow Brown, Cobalt Blue, White Pink
Received: Cobalt Blue.

Another product from the CPM2 box (shakes head), eye shadow is something I quite like but the 80's called and they want their ugly, frosted blue eye shadow back. Also the packaging looks like something a 12 year old would own. I'm not ok with this, will find a 12 year old to give it to.

#4 Revecen Face Control Foundation in #002 Violet 17g Full size RRP $22
I really like Revecen products, they are great quality and this will be handy in my SPFX kit but what I don't understand is why they put this in the CPM2 box.. Yes, this is the third item from a shitty box that wouldn't sell which ended up in boxes that it didn't bloody belong in.

They promote this product as a brightening base for your foundation, which it could be used for but unless you know what you are doing you are more likely to end up looking dead if you wear this under your foundation, it's highly pigmented and requires knowledge of colour theory, pigment, placement and application if you are going to successfully use it. This should never have been in this or the CPM2 box.

#5 Beauty People Miss 100 Auto Gel Pencil Liner 0.5g Full Size RRP $38
Randomly selected from Glimmer Coral, Glimmer Bronze, Gleam Brown
Received: Gleam Brown

Unfortunately the gold flecks aren't showing up in the photo, it just doesn't do it justice.
Ok, finally a really awesome product. The consistency of this gel pencil is so freakin' nice! It's a cool toned brown with flecks of gold micro glitter, I love that once it's set it doesn't budge! These pencils are also sold in boxed sets and now that I've tried one I think I might have to put more of these on my wishlist.

#6 IdeeB Real Triple Rouge in 02 Shine Pink 3g Full Size RRP $17
I wasn't going to swatch this but while I was taking photos I couldn't help but notice that it was a really pretty colour and not like anything that I already had in my collection, so I took the plunge. It's a gorgeous coral pink that has good pigment but the consistency gives a lot of control over the product so you can sheer it out or pack it on for a super intense colour hit. I really like this and have found myself wearing it quite often since opening it..

Overall this is a 50/50 box for me, usually I wouldn't care so much but because I know that half of these products came from a box that wasn't selling really grinds my gears, I think it's really irresponsible of the box curators to create over five thousand collaboration boxes with shitty contents and then dump the junk in to boxes that hadn't yet had their contents chosen but sold out quite quickly. If I had wanted the stupid CPM2 box I would have bought the damn thing!

Cost of box: $23USD + $6.99USD shipping
Memevalue: $129USD
What I paid: $24.33USD

Would you have been happy with this box or do you think I'm justified in being annoyed with receiving leftovers?
