The Indie Memory Box – Holiday’s Past
This is the first ever Indie Memory Box and it is a conglomeration of independent cosmetic brands that have joined together to share what their Holiday’s past are with special one of a kind for this box cosmetics. 10% of all proceeds from this box are being contributed to The Pollinator Partnership, a nonprofit that helps protect pollinators so that our ecosystems continue to flourish. Every item in this box has a connecting memory and recipe, it is so unique and perfect.
I purchased this box the second that it was announced months ago, I was so excited to be able to try multiple brands at one time and especially getting items I won’t be able to get anywhere else. This post is not sponsored and I’m sharing it with you all because I am truly impressed with this box.
It cost a total of $120usd and there are still some available on www.theindiememorybox.com

I am so happy that I was able to get this box when I did and I’m excited for their future projects. I know a Bath & Body subscription box is in our future from them, and I’ll totally be subscribing. I mean look at these swatches in the GIF below. The color pay off for the eyeshadows are great. My personal favorite so far is the Femme Fatale shadow, I do love me a good duochrome.
KaeQs Lip Scrub is to die for, I’ve already used it and my dry lips from this cold weather we’ve been having are already back to their normal happy moisturized state. I mean who would have thought to put a lip scrub in a lip balm tube, so smart.
Oh and the 1st 100 boxes also got a sample of a Poesie Perfume, which is my first from the brand. It is called Messe de Minuit or Midnight Mass based on a Christmas Eve Tradition the owner has in her home state of Louisiana. It is a swirl of chruch incense, wood polished by generations of devotees, boughs of balsam fir swagged with sugar-frosted cranberries on every windowsill. It is beautifully woodsy and spicy. I can’t wait to get my hands on a full-size when it is released.
I’ll be adding more detailed reviews of all of these products as I use them, maybe you’ll even see some FOTD posts soon!
