Unboxing and Review: Yet Value Set

Yet Value Set review
Hey Beauties!

Back in October of 2014, Memebox released a ton of boxes. I mean a mega, huge chunk of boxes. Then in November and December we experienced our first Memebox drought. It was like we were flooded and then left with a trickle. Then these appeared. Value Sets. That kind of remind me of the Naked Boxes but are not Naked boxes. They vary greatly in value and prices, they go from skin care to makeup, to hair care, to a mixture of everything. After some (or really a lot of) thought, I purchased the YET set, which includes everything you see above plus free shipping and came out to be a total cost of $30. When the Value Sets first came out Memebox offered a free gift with each Value Set purchase. In my value set, the free gift I got is the Mise en Scene hair product. Memebox currently have some new Value Sets as well, if you would like to check them out.


If you are new to Memebox, they are a Korean beauty box company that sell non-subscription beauty boxes as well as Korean beauty products. They also have their own line of beauty products as well. Memeboxes contain full size and deluxe size products that are shipped straight from South Korea. I wrote a comprehensive Q and A post about them not too long ago, so if you would like more information on Memebox, you can check it out.

merry tints
These are limited edition Merry Tints that came in a set of 5. As you can see in my set, I received double in one color and did not get the originally promised white shimmer tint. Luckily, Memebox was alerted of their mistake and issue points for everyone who didn't receive the right colors. I didn't purchased this set for the tints and was fully intended to give it away as a Christmas gift. However, seeing as it's missing a color, I ended up not giving it out. I might try the Red Apple and Pink Romance colors, but as of now, I haven't used any yet.
lip tints
Here's what the tints looks like out of the box. I hope they'll be as good as my favorite ElleGirl tint gloss, since the colors all look promising. Will report back after I've tried them!
Kiss me touch me lip and cheek
This is the Kiss Me Touch Me Lip and Cheek cream compact. I got the color Apricot, which is like a nice coral blush color. Personally, I'm a powder blush gal and I'm not fond of putting blush on the lips, even if it's made to. So, I think I will swap this product. 
Catgirl waterproof pen liner
The Catgirl Waterproof Pen Liner! This was one of the products I was excited about. Since I'm always on the look out for the best smudge proof, waterproof, and sebum proof eyeliners. I've already found some pretty amazing pencil gel eyeliners, but I'm still looking for that amazing liquid eyeliner. I have tried this on the back of my hand and I love the fine tip. It is waterproof, however, if you rub it, it will fade a little. I super rubbed it and it began to flake off. Although I don't think I'd ever rub my eyelids that hard. I'll be testing this eyeliner out through my 12 hour method and will report back on it!

Lastly, the Mise en Scene Damage Care Serum for hair, which came as the 'free mystery gift'. I have tried this a couple of times now and I absolutely love it! I use it only on the ends of my hair and I apply it to damp ends in the evening. Sometimes I'll blow dry it but most of the time I just let it air dry naturally. I use about 1 pump every other day. In my opinion, it's not as amazing as the Mise en Scene hair treatment and it doesn't smell as nice as the hair treatment. However, it does give my ends the extra boost, leaving them nice and soft. I recommend only using it on the ends of the hair to avoid a greasy look.

Final Thoughts: I am really happy with this Value Set. It's about the same price as a Memebox since it came with free shipping and a free gift. For the $30 that I paid, it's definitely worth it. My favorites are the masks, there's a large variety and they are just so adorable! I'm excited to try the tints and I wonder how the eyeliner will do in the 12 hour test! As for the cheek and lip cream blush, I'm sure I'll be able to find a good home for it. The bonus hair serum is pretty good as well. All in all, this is an amazing set and I'm so happy I got it.
