Introducing Memebox - Korean Beauty to Your Door

I did say to myself, when starting this blog, no more beauty box posts. There's always a million review of each months Birchbox, Glossybox,... whateverelse box most of which I'm sure are more interesting and informative than anything I bring to the table.
But then I discovered the memebox, and trust me - you want to know about this!

The memebox comes all the way from South Korea - home of cute-as-can-be costmetics, brilliantly bonkers ideas, and the worlds best skincare.
Happily, the box came with a little card explaining what the products all are and how they should be used. But, like an idiot, I've gone and lost my card. This means not only will my descriptions to you be vague at best, but that I'm bound to get the application of these completely wrong as all the on-packet instructions are written in Korean only and mines a little rusty (by which I mean, non-existent).

So firstly we have one of those brilliantly bonkers products, this weird jelly plumping lip mask thing. I've not had this out of the packet yet but Michelle over at Satchels and Pearls got one of these too (read her post about it here!) and she's just told me it's great so I'm looking forward to trying it!
I've only ever tried false eyelashes once, and badly, but since I have a new set I might as well give these another go!

When it comes to sun cream, I'm a factor 50 girl through and through so this will work out great for mw if and when the sun comes out again, and I love the Dr Jart products I've previously tried so I have high hopes for the V7 Eye Serum!

I know that the cc cream craze has made its way over here now, but if my bb cream experiences have taught me anything its that there's a world of difference between the UK high street versions and their Korean counterparts!

Make up wise, the box contained the sweetest little Tony Moly lip tint, this aint half pigmented and is really quite awesome, and the super-smooth Secret Kiss Gel Pencil liner.
Then, the final and possibly most intriguing product, the Bounce Cheese Cream. Yes, I said bounce cheese cream. Apparantly this is 'extend bouncily on your face such like mozzarella cheese'. I have no idea that that means but I love it already!

The memeboxes are not subscription based, and I'm gutted to have missed out on the next one (this was box three, and four has already sold out), so I've preordered five and can't wait to see what comes in that one! You can get them here, but you have to be quick when they release a new one as they seem to be selling like hot cakes!
The box was $21 with $7 shipping, so I think it worked out around £18, and the value of the products inside far exceeds that - I think this is excellent value as well as being tonnes of fun!

What should I start with first?
