Quality Time with my Oh! My Lips Memebox: a Superbox #79 Unboxing & Review

The moment this box went on sale, I threw my money at the computer screen to the chanting of “Gimme!”. I have serious lip issues in the colder months and was desperate for some new solutions. This Memebox promised all that and more. Did it deliver? Read on to find out!

Ok, YES. I know the suspense was killing you. This box is fantastic and incredibly, still available for purchase!
I would highly recommend grabbing your own and here is why….

Oh my lips! The colder season is comin’ round the corner, but are your lips ready?

Cracked, blistered, and dry lips were never hot in beauty history, (and never hot in your love life!) so do you have all the lip essentials to keep your kisser nice and smooth this winter?

If taking care of your lips isn’t part of your beauty to-do list this winter, re-think your beauty priorities. Most people don’t know, but collagen loss and wrinkles around the lips add ages to your face, and with winter winds and drier climate, lips are more prone to aging and thinning. Scared yet? Don’t fret because we’re here to help you fight against lip-aging with this Oh! My Lips Box. Bursting with lip masks, lip patches, lip balm, and lip-thingamabobs, plus some holy-grail lips colors, this box is the answer to all your winter lip problems. All goodies are made with a bold blend of potent age-delaying, moisture-enhancing, volumizing, and smoothing ingredients to give you the look of beautiful, plump, and youthful lips!


vivito balm

VIVITO Painting Sweet Lip Balm – 02 Berry Farm (12g, RV $24)

This chubby jelly-textured tinted lip balm gives rich moisture and nutrition for dry lips. With a refreshing blend of blackberry, orange peel, grape, cacao seed butter, and more natural ingredients, this cute jelly balm will be the answer to winter’s lip care concerns. It also comes in a cute tin case for on-the-go care!

vivito balm

Impressions: This is a lovely balm, which also functions as a tint. I already had the Grape Farm variety from one of the Thanksgiving Memeboxes and was happy to add to the collection with Berry Farm. Just one more to go! These balms don’t feel overly sticky and add a really nice touch of color to the lips. The color is certainly subtle, but I was actually somewhat surprised at the amount of pigmentation. This does a nice job of hydrating my lips as well and I really adore the sleek packaging. I am a huge Vivito fan since discovering them through Memebox. Each item I’ve tried has been smartly packaged and excellent quality.


lassie'el lipstick

Lassie’el Kiss Me! Glam Up! Lipstick (6ea, RV $6)

These are not one-time, disposable tattoos. They are real pigmented lipsticks packaged into these easy-to-carry lip cards, providing you with 6 different color options to choose from according to your mood, day, and occasion!

Impressions: When I initially saw this item in the box I thought to myself “ok, they sent as lipstick samples?”. I was not jazzed. Not even slightly. But having read up on these a bit more and also seen one in action, I think these have potential. The colors are all fairly neutral and wearable and I appreciate that these aren’t just one-time use as I had initially suspected. I’m still attempting to come up with the perfect occasion to utilize these, where a standard lippie isn’t preferable and am slightly stumped. But it’s certainly a fun and unique item. If I had younger, female relatives in my life, I might pass these on as I think they would make a great gift for a young girl.


sr liip scrub

SR Lip Scrub (30ml, RV $12)

Exfoliate away dead skin cells and deeply soothese and hydrate dry, chapped lips with SR’s Lip Scrub entriched with a blend of argan oil, tocopherol, vitamin E, snail filtrate, and pearl extracts. The gentle micro-beads soften and smooth out roughened lips for suppler, kissable pout!

sr lip scrub

Impressions: This item is tied for my favorite in the box because it really delivers on my closely held hopes and dreams when I was making this purchase. The micro-beads that are described are totally undetectable. So much so that when I initially slathered on this scrub without even reading the description, I had thought that it was a chemical exfoliant. So you don’t feel any granules (small or otherwise) scrubbing at your lips when you use this, but after 20-30 seconds of gently massaging this over and then rising off… wow… my lips haven’t looked or felt this good in months! As the photo above shows, there is more to this SR line and I am very eager to try the rest.


vivito remover

Vivito Dessin Solution Lip & Eye Remover (100ml, RV $32)

A double-layered Lip & Eye Remover that effectively melts away stubborn point makeup and skin impurities around sensitive eye contours and lips. Make sure to shake the upper and lower layers well together before application. Its gentle blend of lemon grass oil and rosehip oil has soothing and moisturizing effects as well.

Impressions: Another perfectly lovely Vivito product. It’s difficult to get too excited about a makeup remover, but this one is quite nice and effective. It doesn’t have any sort of overwhelming scent, which I always appreciate, and didn’t irritate my eyes at all when I used it, which sometimes occurs even with products intended for that area. I didn’t need to scrub at all as makeup essentially melted off at the touch my cotton bud or swab. I like anything that allows me to be gentle in and around my eye area and this didn’t dry my lips at all, which sometimes occurs when attempting to remove a stubborn lippie. The Vivito items might seem to have inflated RVs (which wouldn’t be anything new), but these are in-line with pricing for these products on sites outside of Meme as well. After using these items, I can see why they aren’t cheap.


 rosemine balm

Rosemine Vitamin E Lip Balm – Mint Tea (12g, RV $7)

Scented with a refreshingly minty, herbal fragrance,the Vitamin E Lip Balm is richly formulated from a blend of vitamin E, ceramide, peppermint extracts, and 5 different kinds of moisturizing esential oils. It coats over dry, chapped lips with a moisture layer to lock in the moisture and to protect against external damage or dehydration.

rosemine balm lip6

Impressions: This is my other favorite item in the box. A lip balm. Who knew? But it’s SUCH  a lovely lip balm! The scent is light and the texture is more gel-like than creamy. I’ve tried too many lip balms to even attempt at estimate and the large majority of them just sort of sit on your lips and don’t do much of anything. This one is instantly and miraculously hydrating and also leaves the pretties glossy finish on your lips. It also last forever. I’ve put it on before I go to bed at night and can still feel it on my lips in the morning. I mean. Come on! I love this stuff. Can you tell? I received the Rose Fairy variety in the My Pouch Essentials Memebox and have been very happily using one at home and the second on-the-go. I was one of those people who was miffed at Meme for including what are essentially duplicate items in boxes that were released so close together, but I take it all back! If you want to include these in more boxes, Meme, please have at it!

Overall Impressions

This box cost $23 + shipping and contains 5 full-sized items. I can’t say I was thrilled upon first receiving it, but I can honestly say I am now. The Memevalue amounts to $81, though that means little to me – particular as some of my favorite products are the cheapest in the bunch (bodes well for backups!). This box fully delivered on my intent when ordering it, which is that it provided some serious relief to the dry/chapped lips I always get this time of year and made it possible for me to continue my lippie obsession without looking ridiculous in the darker F/W colors and my beloved mattes.
I’m really tempted to pick up another box while it’s still available.

  1. This box is actually pretty good! I’m sorry I missed it. The lipstick swatches seem like a great way to try out some colors without commiting to full tubes of questionable colors. Fantastic post! #kbeautybloghop

  2. I didn’t get this box, but I’m sure I would have had a “WTF?” reaction to the individual lipstick kisses/samples, haha. Other than that, everything in this box seems super nice and useful. Yay! #kbeautybloghop
