This cream is supposed to brighten and hydrate your face while camouflaging redness. You can use it under your makeup or as a highlighter. I used it under my bb cream, the above pictures are of my skin with only the strobe cream on. 

2. Vella: Flower Flower BB; 15ml
Full size product is 15ml; $26

First off, I can't get over how expensive this tube of bb cream is... 15ml is 1/3 of the size of a "regular" tube of bb cream, yet this is even more expensive than many brands of bb cream I own. This is a hydrating formula that is supposed to control oil and minimize the appearance of pores. I found it to be a bit greasy for my skin, and filled in my pores making my face look a bit funny. It does contain SPF 30, which probably explains the ghostly whiteness in the "flash" photo.

3. TonyMoly: 7 Days Tattoo Eyebrow; 0.8ml
Full size product is 0.8ml;$8 

I never know how I should feel about eyebrow products. I have dark, bushy brows naturally, so adding in more product just makes me feel like an ogre. This product comes in the same shade in each Memebox, which is Dark Brown, and it luckily matches my brows perfectly. You're supposed to be able to apply this to your brows before bed and have it last for 7 days before you need to fill in your brows again. For the sake of reviewing and creating a "look" with my box, I applied it when I did my makeup lol. I felt like the tip was very easy to work with, and I liked how the formula applied, but it did seem to dry up a couple times during application, so I took a while to get it going enough to get my full brows done. I don't know how long this pen will last. 

4. Style Y: Soft Fit Mix & Match Pencil and Powder Shadow; 0.5g
Full size product is 0.5g; $9

Of the two possible shades this stick comes in, I received Deep Choco Liner & Gold Tip. I like the light shimmer of the shadow, and I like how smoothly the liner applies - but I don't like how much the powder shadow creases =(

5. Style Y: Color Fit Creamy Lip & Cheek; 5ml
Full size product is 5ml; $13

This looks super bright right out of the tube, but is actually pretty wearable once it dries and sets. I used it on my lips only, and I like the formula for the most part. I think it feels a bit grainy while it dries. Not chunky, just like a silty dry oil feeling.

6. Color World: Jewelish Stick Shadow; 10g
Full size product is 10g; $13
I swatched this shadow above, but the chunky glitter was a huge turn-off for me. My eyes are too sensitive for chunky glitter, and I honestly didn't know what to do with two shadows in such opposite ranges of color. This will be sanitized and swapped.

So there have it! This was a nice fun box. Here's the look I was able to create using only products from this box, minus the purple stick shadow:
