Cosmetics – How to Shop on Memebox Korea

Memebox0In this guide I am going to show you exactly how to find specific items, decide on product options and the get the required information to order off of Memebox Korea (미미박스) using KoreanBuddy.  Try this link to the brands page if you keep getting redirected to the US site.  Korean Memebox Link.

Memebox, pronounced mi-mi-box, is an online cosmetics shopping mall that sells selected products from many Korean and some international cosmetics brands all at discounted prices.  These prices are MUCH MUCH cheaper than the US version of the site.  Sometimes more than 50% cheaper!!

I will go through the process of finding some eyeliner and an oil based cleanser.  I will translate all categories at the bottom of this guide. For more translation help check out the cosmetics glossary.

Searching in English on this site is hit and miss, if you search the brand’s name it gives pretty good results, but if you search a product like eyeliner or lipstick the search doesn’t work.  The search does have a bunch of keywords programmed in, so if you type the first couple letters of the brand you want to see, the brand name usually shows below.  (see the picture)

Tip#1 – You won’t find every product your looking for here, but the prices are very good.  Only the brand’s site itself will have better sales than Memebox, and only sometimes.

Tip#2 – Have fun browsing the site and ask me a questions through the chat anytime!

Main menu explanation: ‘한정특가’ are limited time specials, these last 24 hours, and change daily.  ‘베스트’ best are the top selling products on the site. ‘아임미미’ I’m Meme is Memebox’s own makeup brand. NEW is self explanatory.  Lastly ‘온리미미’ are products, mostly sets of products only available on Memebox Korea.  This is a great place to buy gifts!

Product #1: Eyeliner – from the main menu I am going to click makeup ‘메이크업’ followed by eye makeup ‘아이 메이크업’ and finally eyeliner ‘아이 라이너.’ (see the picture)

 

 

You can sort the products by popularity, newest, most reviews, lowest price, highest price. Also, in the bottom left corner of each product advertisement you can see a blue box with a won amount.  This is how much money you have to spend to get free delivery in Korea, not free international delivery of course. Memebox.003I’m choosing the second product, The Saem Power Proof Tank Liner.  Always scroll down on the product page to learn about product options.  You can see the colors and corresponding option numbers, and take a look at customer ratings and photos. To see customer reviews click on the second box in the menu just below the product picture. (see the picture)
