Whenever I go on vacation, I have a difficult time discerning which makeup brushes to take along for the ride.  The customary solution is to take one primary brush and utilize him for everything.  My overworked foundation brush usually performs the roles of base, blusher, bronzer and powder brush.  So when Memebox contacted me to review their travel Memebox Meme Brush Set (normally $36 USD/ 6 brushes), I quickly pounced on the opportunity.  Could these delightful sextuplets be the answer to my dilemma?  After all, who could resist pink handled travel size brushes?  Not I my friends 🙂

According to Memebox:

Memebox curates the most trusted and popular Korean beauty products, while offering consumers the flexibility to choose by steering away from traditional subscription-based programs offered by most other sampling services. Customers can order from Memebox only when and as often as they want.

In addition to its box series, Memeshop carries full-sized products featured in previous Memeboxes, offering targeted insights into Korean cosmetic trends.

Introducing Memebox’s new line of high-quality brushes, conveniently packaged in a sleek black travel case. This set of six versatile, easy-to-use brushes contains every brush needed to conquer all makeup looks. Plus, the cute and handy travel case will have you toting this collection with you everywhere.

For a limited time only, this luxe makeup brush set is available for USA customers for half the original price with free shipping!

The Pros to Memebox Meme Brush Set:

  1. Adorable pink travel size brushes measure roughly 4¾ inches (12 cm) each.
  2. Comes with a faux-leather zip around pouch with glittered covering (glitter does not come off at all).
  3. Shorter handles yield more control.
  4. Perfect for young girls starting out in makeup.
  5. Lightweight and compact design is ideal for travel and for carrying around in a makeup bag.
  6. Pouch can house additional makeup items, such as a lipstick and mirror.
  7. A complete look can be achieved with this set, with the exception of foundation.
  8. Angled contour brush is surprisingly soft (not scratchy) giving a perfect diffused look to bronzer and blush.
  9. The brow brush is soft and dense enough to apply gel liner and to tight line the upper water line.
  10. The dual-ended eyeshadow and lip brush (my favorite) is ideal for color placement and smoking out any liner or cream shadow.  The lip liner end has a retractable closure, which can also be used for precise spot concealing.
  11. The eyeshadow brush is dense enough to lay down color without being scratchy or flimsy.
  12. For a limited time, US customers can purchase this set for $18 USD ($3 for each brush).

The Cons to Memebox Meme Brush Set:

  1. Washing these brushes before use is a must to remove the protective spray coating on the bristles.
  2. The dual-fiber brush shed quite a few hairs during the first washing.
  3. The eyeshadow brush is composed of Linsey-Woolsey, a combination of wool/cotton or wool/linen.
  4. Made in China…but then again, so are Bobbi Brown Brushes.

THE VERDICT:  If makeup could talk what would it say?

Makeup would tell you Memebox Meme Brush Set has really made a remarkable impression.  Will these little pink darlings replace my higher end brushes?  No; however, the dual-ended brush and contour brush alone are worth the expense of this entire set.  Bottom-line, totally worth $36 and a steal for $18; now all I need is a vacation destination  🙂  Be well, stay safe and be happy.

  1. I really enjoyed seeing the brushes in action. I think I like the dual-ended brush the best as well. Coming from someone who is crazy about her concealer, I can see using one end to apply concealer and the other to blend it out.

    • Hello Tara,
      I’m glad you enjoyed this post. I love that dual-ended brush, being that it is synthetic, it can be use with powder, creams and gel formulations. This guy would be perfect to carry around for concealer.

  2. That is a nice set of travel brushes, the right price too. You don’t want to take your expensive brushes on a trip, yet you don’t want useless cheap brushes which can’t apply anything except maybe a lipstick. I like that dual ended eye brush, nice that it has a cap!

    I have a couple of brushes about that size and am always looking to add or collect brushes in that size because I think they are cute! LOL

    • Hello Olivia,
      My sentiments exactly. I never take more than one face brush and one eye brush along when I travel. This little set is perfect and I cannot stress how impressed I am with their performance–and yes, they are soooo cute 🙂
