This is extra exciting! In addition to curating a variety of fun K-Beauty products, Memebox has created their first line of cosmetics in partnership with RE:CIPE. Memebox has provided this “Time on My Lip” liquid lip tint in Awesome Pink free for me to review, but as always, all opinions are my own.
This product line launches October 23rd and will retail for $12, although there’s a special deal if you sign up on their website in advance. This is paraben-free, and promises a buildable, “gradient” tint. It’s designed to be layered, and Memebox recommends dabbing lightly for a tint, applying a full coat for a shiny gloss, and layering on a second coat for an opaque lipstick effect. Memebox also suggests switching it up by blotting down the opaque, glossy finish for a lasting matte lip.
So I tried each of these methods and I LOVE IT. I’m not just saying this, check out the swatched pictures:
1. The light stain
2. Sheer and glossy
3. Fully opaque and shiny
4. Opaque but blotted
Am I right? It’s so pretty! It’s also very moisturizing and smooth. You can probably see how the lines in my lips smooth out as I build the coverage. It’s very even-looking and easy to apply. I didn’t notice much of a scent, although it has a really mild “makeup” taste if you lick your lips.
The packaging has a nice weight to it and the lip logo on the front is clear so you can see the product inside. I also noticed that the color is the exact color of the Memebox box. Cuuuute.
So I’m a fan! I can see myself buying additional colors when the full line comes out on Thursday.
