Known for her classic and girly aesthetics, The Pink Diary is one of the most-followed lifestyle and beauty bloggers. MEMEBOX X The Pink Diary features some of our favorite items and classic beauty must-haves, like the essential Banila Co. primer and Croquis lip crayon that also functions as a blush!

This was Memebox's first collaboration with a beauty blogger (they have done two more after after this and all are sold out) and while I had no clue who Pink Diary was, I bought the box because I found the products quite interesting. There was no surprise element because I already knew what I was getting inside but as always it is a treat to open a Memebox and must say, I really like this one.
