REVIEW : Memebox x Dayeong XO Black Stick Foundation

Hey! I'm back with another review to a not-so-new product from Memebox, it's Dayeong XO Black Stick Foundation in #23 Natural!


Among of 4 bloggers (at the time) that collaborated with Memebox, I personally love Dayeong the most. Not only because she's so effortlessly beautiful, but because she's also have similar preferences to me when it comes to beauty product. 

For example, she hates the fact that BB creams are commonly too light for most people, she's fair, but she usually still goes for the darkest shade because she believes foundations and bb creams should match one's skin tone! And she hates sticky, over dewy finishes, and guess what? ME TOO. 

Sadly because of her specific preferences, she trusts western brands face products more than Korean's. I know how she feels because I feel like it's super hard for me to find a non-dewy, not too bright face product on Korea brands. Only recently, Dayeong also started to branch her collection into the drugstore priced product, which is great! 

One of her HG product is Bobby Brown Stick Foundation, in which she used it in most of her videos at the time. And when she announced that she'll do a collaboration with Memebox I'm really, really excited about her product. 

When I saw there's a stick foundation in her collection, I thought she must be trying to recreate that HG foundation she likes - lol. However, I'm still interested to purchasing her product only to found that her foundation is like KRW 25.000 (Now is discounted to KRW 10.000 in the website). Grah. Too expensive! 

Fortunately I made a good choice to wait because when I finally made the purchase, I got a discount and a free brush from the collection! 아싸! 

The packaging itself is soo unique, with squared shaped boxes, I can't say 3CE can't even compete with that chic packaging! :D

The stick foundation is retractable and surprisingly contain much more product than I expected it to be. 

One of the reason why I haven't had the courage into purchasing stick foundations is that I'm not sure about the creaminess of the product. I don't really want to drag a chunk of foundation across my face! And this foundation? It's so creamy I can't even! It glides on perfectly and evenly on the skin. 

For the finish, the foundation is definitely dewy-er than I expect it to be. And the lasting power is definitely longer for something as creamy as this one. Either with primer or using it alone, the lasting power is way longer than I expect. Still prefer to use this without primer for more natural look - it looks too cakey when combined with primer and that I don't have any idea why. 

I tried to reduce the dewyness with loose powder, but because the first layer is already dewy, I can't make it into super matte - which is different from what I usually prefer to. But, I got most compliments when I used this foundation - strangely enough. I mean I probably look like tempura just got out from the fryer by the end of the day day but they still compliment my skin! :o 

Mostly people said my skin looks like porcelain, well that's a compliment right? :D

Coverage wise, this foundation have a light-medium coverage. It's definitely not heavy on the skin and I assure you your skin could still breathe under this. The shade matches my skin tone too perfectly, more than other brands and product's 23 - this is perfect! :))

For the brush, the brush is not as dense as I thought it would be. Great for evening out this stick foundation, but I'm not sure about liquids as it can absorb too much product (since it's not as dense). 

If only this brush is a taaaad bit shorter, it'll definitely works better! I used this foundation on my tutorial :

In which in the video you can see that my ugly-ass face is covered in seconds with this foundation - and you can see how creamy it is! One thing that is great from stick foundations is their efficiency - it's slide blend and you're pretty! :D

Thankyou so much for reading! I'll probably post a haul post soon :*

First, the packaging is undeniable cute. Everyone will definitely ask what is that whenever I pulled this out from my bag. Inspired by real ink, the packaging is one of the reason on why I feel the need to invest in this product!

The applicator is very firm, but still very easy to apply and the applicator is flat on its side, so it's great for even application and to make that Korean style gradation lips too!

The product itself is more like a gel type lip tint, that literal ink - which I thought this lip tint will be super watery but it's not. It's definitely much more solid that Peri Pera's Water Tint. 

I do think Peri Pera is one of the best brand in lip tints, and with this they prove it once more! 

The gel-type tint didn't settle in lip lines as much as the water tint, it's definitely easier to apply and control (remember how I said I always get tints in my teeth with the water tint - nope, it won't happen with this one!). 

This tint is famous for being long lasting, so long lasting that its minus point is their lasting power. Peri Pera also launced a specific remover for this ink product so that it'll disappears. For me, I didn't need specific remover, I just used my regular cleansing and remover and it's pretty much gone. (but on the day I took a pic of the swatch on my hand, it took 3 days for it to completely gone from my hand ._.)

They state that this lip tint is so light, you won't feel it. I say, yes it is. It's so light and definitely not as drying as regular water tints, so you won't feel discomfort or feeling of something in your lips. Lasting power is definitely one of it's strong point, as the pigmentation is not as vivid as other tints but it still comparable with those with brighter, more vivid shade tints. 

I found that other than using this lip tint alone, this could be a great base for vivid colored lipstick. So sometimes when I'm using bright shade lipstick, I used this lip tint first and then the lipstick. Since the lip tint has this staining effect, when the lipstick faded, it won't leave an awkward spots where my true lip color exposed, instead it'll shows the stain the lip tints left so it'll look less disturbing! :)

Super, super love this product. It's long lasting, not drying and the cute packaging is everything. The pigmentation might be not as strong or as vivid as other lip tint, but I say it's great for everyday use!

The super cute packaging is definitely an eye catcher and you'll be famous in a second once you shows your lip tint on your weekly girlfriend meeting! XD

Oops, one more thing is that when my friend used my tints, she said it has no bitter taste which probably older "original" tints had. That's another plus point I should say! The scent isn't strong too :)

Thankyou so much for reading, folks! :))
