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.

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

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!

First impression: Sally's box Gold snail hydrogel mask and friendly argan hair mask, my very first video too!

 Just recently, Memebox accepted me as one of their influencers.  What that means is that they kind of sponsor me from time to time and send me products to review for them.  This is super excited because this is my first sponsorship, and it really feels good that companies want to work with a mere human like me :3.

So I am doing a first impression on these two Sally's box products, the gold snail hydrogel mask and friendly argan hair mask which was featured in the Rapenzel memebox.  I had to do videos for these two products because it would be kind of hard for me to 

*Disclaimer: They did send this to me for free for reviewing purposes, but please do not confused this and think they send me all the boxes I have unboxed in the past.  I'm not that popular LOL.  Again, mere human....*

P.S.  Coupons will be linked below of this post for Memebox, and links to where you can buy these products.

Favorites and staples:Skincare products

 As a girl that is literally on Youtube watching beauty guru and random weird videos, I always see these well known beauty gurus doing their monthly favorites.  Honestly I really can not relate because there is no way I can like a product that fast in a span of a month.  And every month is usually different.  That tells me a couple of things, they are either getting paid to say it or they just want to keep it fresh and use new products for their viewers. 

I wouldn't say that these are my holy grail products just yet, but I would say they are definitely a staple product in my collection I tend to grab and rely on on a daily basis.  When I do have a holy grail product, they I will do a I FOUND MY HOLY GRAIL GUYS!  But for now, this will be called the favorites and staples.

Quality is not depended on the price tag attached to it.  Most, if not all of these products are very affordable, but two products are not readily accessible to all of us sadly :(.

P.S.  Do you notice the pictures are looking a bit different?  I recently learned to use my DSLR camera and my father gifted me a light box as an early Christmas present!  Seriously, I have the most awesome parents.  I'm glad I invested in a DSLR hehe.  I love you Canon!!

Also for reference, my skin type is...
-dry to normal
-get the rare occasion of pimples
-flakey skin from dry, not severe, just when I use foundation, you can see it clearly
