Etude House December 2014 Pink bird box (Feat. Arctic Aurora collection)

I'm finally back!  I have been working everyday and I come home super tired and poopy.  Everyone else is enjoying their holidays, while I am serving them their food.  So I am finally back, I'm going to hold off sleeping tonight and do this post since I want to get this up already!  I have been super excited about this collection when I saw it on Etude House's instagram photo of the Arctic Aurora collection.  I'd have to say that their nail polishes in this collection is stellar, and after being wowed by the first pink bird box that came with three of their nail polishes, I fell in love with them.  So I was super excited, waiting with anticipation to get the arctic aurora polishes but sadly they did not come in this month's box.  :( 

On the bright side, I got my second box bird box finally.  I actually got this box about a week and a half ago already, but I got caught up with life so I didn't get to post it up in detailed pictures.  If you want to see my latest upcoming posts or just random make up pictures, come visit me at instagram: Christinahello~  See you there! :D
 If you want to check out my first Etude house pink bird box, click here!  This is with the Pink tree collection where if you live in Asia and you buy anything from the Christmas collection, they donate 100 won to the Save the children foundation.  So check that out!

Y.E.T thank you set

About a month ago, Memebox created five "thank you sets" featuring kocostar, YET, Ddung, benton and another brand that is not coming to mind.  Only the YET set caught my eyes because of the lip stain set of 5 different colors along with a liquid liner, 10 piece sheet mask, a lip and cheek cream and the set also came with a free gift all for the price of $30 which was an amazing deal in my eyes.  I used a $5 coupon code so the price came down to $25 plus free shipping.  At first I was going to pass, but then it was sold out and I got super sad.  After two days, it came back in stock and I knew if i didn't get it the second time, I'm totally going to regret it and I was definitely right.
Memebox has taken down the page for these sets, but this was the picture that they had on the set.  They also had swatches which was super helpful since they were an online item and we couldn't swatch them to see if we liked them. So I appreciate Memebox doing swatches for us and I hope they will continue to do that in the future.

Let's get started :). Again, coupons will be included at the end of the post along with my archive list of my past memebox unboxings.

New: Memebox christmas special Winter essential masks

Christmas Collection #3 Winter Essential Masks
Memebox has come back with another Christmas edition box, and this time it is a mask box.  I think out of all the boxes, the mask box never disappoints so if you are a mask lover, this is the box for you.

Make sure to check out the bottom for your coupon code of $5 off $30 to save yourself some money :D.  Also there are a couple of restock boxes still available so make sure to check those out too.  Click here :D.

Sephora black Friday 2014 haul

 Finishing off the black Friday hauls I did which isn't very much since I only went to two stores.  Nothing else was good.  I was hoping to get a good deal on the Macbook pro too, but there wasn't anything that great for me to splurge. But on the happier note, Sephora had some pretty amazing deals for only $10 for each item.  For those that shop at Sephora, you know that is a steal of a deal since you can step into the store and not wanting to buy anything and then step out of the store paying $100 for two products.  They have this $10 deal every year, and if you want to check the whole list, you can see it on Temptalia's blog page here.

I was eyeing one product indefinitely and would have been super heartbroken if I couldn't buy it and it was the bite beauty lip trio.  Just one of the mini lip glosses sold for $15, so for three for the price was $10 was definitely a steal.  The other products I was on the fence about were the Nest fragrance trio and maybe even the Tarte set if I could get my hands on it.

I tried to wake up at 6:30 am and get to the mall before they opened but I was slightly still sleepy.  I finally got out of bed at 7:30 am and bused to the mall at 8:45 am or so.  I was so scared that everything would have been sold out but I was lucky and everything was still there :D.

Anyways, let's get into the haul :).  I have been talking for too long.

The body shop black friday haul

 I know this is super duper over due, but I get excited with unboxing memeboxes that I always put everything else on the back burner.  I should have uploaded this when it was still available but I just couldn't with work being so busy :S.  So sorry in advance for that but I am going to share with you this awesome deal right here ;).

I believe this deal only happens twice a year, but they always have good deals like 40% off, buy 3 get 3 free.  I also suggest getting the body shop membership since it is worth it as well.  The card itself is $10, but you do get $10 credit back on your birthday month to spend it on anything you would like.  Every $25 you spend before tax, you get one point.  If you get up to 4 points, you get $15 store credit and if you get u to 8 points, you get back $25 store credit and a free renewal for next year's membership.

On top of that, you get 10% off regularly when you buy anything from the store and you get exclusive deals as well.  I think it is a pretty sweet deal.  You can always work up a good deal since I'm going to teach you all the tips and tricks!  Let's get started shall we?

Unboxing: Memebox special #57 For dry and sensitive skin

 Surprise surprise.  What is this?  Another unboxing? LOL  Yes it is time for another unboxing, this time it is for dry and sensitive skin box.  When this box came out, it was screaming my name.  I just had to get it and was actually super excited for it since I love my some skincare products.  I finally got the box after tension with my mail man. 

 My usual mail lady is across the country doing something super cool, so I have this a**hole sub that doesn't do his job.  Where I live right now, it is snowing and there is ice. When I checked my phone app, it again said attempted delivery but he never rang the doorbell, for the fifth time.  So I went to my mail box to get my slip (which is SUPPOSE to be hanging on my front door) and I was like sigh I'll just get my mom to get it since the post office is next to where she works.  Then suddenly, I had a light bulb above my head that went ding!  Maybe he is still working on the mail box down the street, so I went to the corner of my street to peek and sure enough he was there.  I ran as fast as I could, while trying not to slip on the ice and I caught up to him.  I let him finish sorting the letters into the mail box and then asked him personally "Can I please get my parcel."  I don't think he expected me to come and hunt him down and I could tell he was slightly embarrassed.  I don't think he understands that we can track our parcels down, so he didn't think he would get caught being lazy.  

So today when I knew another parcel was going to come, I purposely woke up early to wait at the window to see when the truck was going to come. I waited for a good hour and a half and it never came so I was like, hmm guess he isn't delivering it today since the tracking says it is just processed and not on its way.  I go to my mail box, and there was a key to open the magical compartment at the mail box to get parcels, and my box was there (this one I'm talking about is the Lucky box 11).  I was super happy he at least just left it there :).  Thanks mail man, I'm glad your days are numbered since you don't want to do your job.  My usual mail lady is coming back in 5 days. YEY!

Anyways, enough of my long story.  Let's get to the unboxing shall we?
$29.00 + shipping

New coupon codes are out!  Feel free to use them :).  They are included at the bottom of the blog post.

Unboxing: Memebox special OMG 4

 When memebox first released the statement for this box after the disappointment to deliver real OMG products in the past OMG boxes, they said they would ensure use that they would give us the weirdest, quirkest products in the OMG 4.  So i gave memebox my trust and hoped for the best.  I'd have to say this will me my last omg box after getting three out of the four OMG editions.  No more for me.  Maybe because I'm already immuned to all the weird things such as bee venom, snake venom, spider venom, placenta, snail mucus, all of those I'm already immuned to and like.  But I do think this is a good box nonetheless.  Anyways, let's get into it and see what are the contents of the box ;).
#55 OMG 4
$29.00 + shipping
 Sneak peek of what is inside the box ;).  You can't really see much eh? BUAHAHAH

I apologize in advance for the dis-function of my nose.  I'm still sick and have a runny nose, therefore I can't really smell anything so I can't really do the smell-o-scale for you guys.  I'm sorry :(.

Coupons for December has been updated and will be included at the end of this post!  There is also a list of my old unboxings if you would like to check it it!

Unboxing: Memebox superbox #65 korea's most wanted 2

 This box totally came to me at surprised, and was delivered to my house without my knowledge. When I got the notice slip, i was like huh?  No box to my knowledge, was scheduled to arrive to my house so I thought it could be a Etude House box.  An hour after I found the notice, I saw the Memebox email and they said they have sent me the Korea's Most wanted 2 box for me to review.  Honestly I was surprised when they terminated the Memebox influencer program since I only got accepted recently and then was sent the Sally's box products to review for them and then the program was ended.  I was quite sad, but they they came out with a new program and I was invited.  Of course I was gladly accepted but I didn't think anything would come out of it.  So I'm super excited to do this unboxing for you, because well... you already know I'm a huge fan of Memebox already.  Hehe!  No surprised there.

So here it is, I'm babbling again keke.  Sorry~~~

$32.00 + shipping

I know this is an old box, but I do like to document the boxes so i could look back at it for fun and hopefully it is helpful for you guys too ;). Enjoy!

Unboxing: Memebox special #53 Wine and cheese cosmetics

When memebox came out with the wine and cheese box, it was like the memegods have heard our prayers.  Many of our memebox lovers on different forums, makeup talk and the facebook page, have been discussing about a wine and cheese box for months.  So when they did come up with one for sell, I jumped on it as fast as I could since I knew it would be a great box.  The one thing that confirmed that it would be a good box is that they promised us Dear by enprani bounce cheese cream which I have been hearing plenty of people all over the globe raving about how amazing it is.  I was so sad since I couldn't score the cream, so when it was the promo product of the box, oh yea.... you best believe I'll buy it keke.  It's for science okay ;).  I know I got like 50+ boxes already.  DON'T JUDGE ME!

I'm super surprised how fast it came.  I got the tracking number yesterday night, plugged the tracking number into my Canada post app and it said it was already processed.  When I see that, it means I would get it the next morning which made me super happy.  Keep in mind, I didn't get express shipping because I'm a peasant and can't afford $24 for shipping, which is ridiculous anyways.
 #53 Wine & Cheese Cosmetics
$29.00 + shipping

The box is currently out of stock, but they do have the random restock so you can always try clicking the link ;).
Sneak peek baby!

Offically Etude House's newest Pink bird member

I'm very pleased to announce that I am the new pink bird for Etude house!  What does this mean?  This means Etude House will be sending me a box full of their upcoming products for me to review every month to review, swatch and to show my lovely readers what will be their newest collections.  This collection, I believe, has not been released since I cannot find any information on the Christmas collection.

What is a Etude house pink bird?
I'd like to call myself a secret agent (CIA, FIB, all that jazz!) for Etude House, but I'm not that cool haha.  Pink bird is a exclusive program where Etude House hand pick beauty bloggers all around the world to showcase their products for all their Etude House's fan worldwide.

Can I buy the pink bird boxes?
I do not believe you can buy these boxes since these are pretty much like press boxes.  I do hope they come out with a beauty box just with Etude house products.  That would be amazing!

I myself don't have much information about this program so I can't really answer questions, and there isn't information on the web either.  But I hope you do enjoy yourself here on my blog now that you can get the sneak peek of the upcoming Etude house collection!  I'm super excited :DD.
Cool pink bird badge! :DD IT'S OFFICIAL~

My future goal is to go to South Korea and experience the culture, food and of course their amazing beauty products, but for now, Korean cosmetics will have to do.  A dream is only a dream until it becomes reality, sigh...

You interested to see the details?  Clink "read more"!  I know you want to ;).

Please excuse my appearance

Dear lovely readers:

Not sure if you guys have noticed, but I have been trying to update my blog page to make it easier to navigate around.  I have added a page category, but am still going through my old post and tagging them into the right category. Please bear with me.  I am just a mere human and have a day job, while doing beauty post as a hobby :).  Thank you for your patience!  

Love you guys, MMnoob 

Tarte x QVC $59 amazing value set

Contact me

If you are a company that would like to work with me/ sponsor me, please contact me through the following email:

If you are a reader and would like to ask me general question on products, blog post, memebox, or just want a pal to talk to, you can contact me here:

Hit me up ;). I will always have time for you!

About me, story of my weird self and obsession with cosmetics

Not sure if you guys know too much about me, so I will do a post about who is behind this keyboard!  I am this mysterious girl called Christina (aka. MMnoob or christinahello on instagram) and I have a problem.  What problem do you ask?  I have a beauty addiction and it has taken over my bathroom and half my bedroom.  If you don't call that an addiction, I don't know what is.

Why do I like cosmetics so much you ask.  Growing up, I was always this girl that appeared very tomboy, and the expression ugly duckling is very true to me.  Just imagine a 5'3 tall asian girl, with super frizzy hair, buck teeth (yes just like a rabbit) who had to go through getting braces, and on top of that I had to wear glasses.  I hated my hair back in the day, so I would always tie it up into a low ponytail, not the high one because that didn't exist in my world back then...

Unboxing: superbox #84 skinfood

Here is the second unboxing for the day, and this box got me super excited.  I didn't even think twice on buying this box, it just went into the checkout and was paid for LOL.  I have heard about skinfood's black sugar mask scrub, but I never bought it.  I don't know why, but I was super excited to see the spoilers for this box and the product was in there!  That just made the whole box worth it :).  The only skinfood product I have ever tried was their aloe vera BB cream, but that didn't really work out too well for me, so my impression of skinfood was so so. The reason why I love memebox is that you pay a fraction of the price, but you get way more then the value you paid for.  The black sugar scrub itself is about $8-10, so why not spend $29+ shipping (you can use points and shipping to make it cheaper), and get four more products for the price of two!  This box was a win win for me since I wanted to try more of the brand out.  So exciteeeeddd~~~

The skinfood box seems to be missing on the website, but I will link it again when i find it.  Hopefully its not because I'm blind.

$29.00 + shipping
 Sneak peek of the box ;).  Coupons will be at the end of the post!

Unboxing: Superbox #63 Blackheads no more

#63 Blackheads No More
 Guess who is super duper late again on unboxing? MEEEEE.  In my defence though, my boyfriend was in t he hospital, my little doggie had some body problems, i got into a car accident and now on top of everything, my boyfriend's family member pasted away.  I am not lying.  I swear....  This seriously is the worst month ever.  Please becareful out there, my lovely friends.

But as always, here is the usual unboxing.  But now with better lighting :D.  YEY.  I'm still working on getting better with my photos, so hopefully I can learn faster.  Tell me if you like the change!  Or you like the organic, crappy lighting ones from before XDDD.

Blackheads no more!
$39.00 + shipping
 Here is the sneek peak, just in case you guys didn't want to get it spoiled.  Maybe I should even do those cube blur, just like the magazines xDD.  What do you guys think?

Coupons will always be included at the end of the post, so make sure to use those~

Sephora VIB 20% off haul

I was going to rush and try and do a Sephora 20% off haul, but because I am going through some decisions, and such, I don't think it would be a good idea to do a thorough haul with close up pictures and such since I am going to return a few products here and there.  But the star of the haul has to be the Marc Jacobs eyeshadow palette which costed a lot of pretty pennies, but is really worth it!  I also got the Naked basics 2 and a surprise product which I didn't expect to buy which is the Nars contour blush in Olympia.

I got some products for presents, and the big super star set isn't mine haha.  It is for a friend but I really recommend getting that set if you do have the discount.  There is a full sized smashbox BB cream, Chole roller ball perfume, full sized (i believe) Nars orgasm, full sized urban decay shadow and a full sized Anastasia brow wiz.  I got the brow wiz too, but I came him today and rolled up the product to see how much there was inside the pencil and there IS SO LITTLE!  The pomade, which I got originally only costed $23 while the pencil cost $27... Not please.

Anyways, I will do a full haul when I get all the products sorted out, and see which products I will keep in my collection.

I'd love to hear what you got for the Sephora 20% off sale or the 20% sale :).  Leave a comment down below!
