Medusa’s Makeup Blush in Dangerous Liason – Value $12

This is a gorgeous, highly-pigmented blush, with just a hint of shimmer. I recommend going easy on applying this – a little goes a long way with the color! (Swatched in lower photo.)

Medusa’s Makeup Lipstick in Sugar Daddy – Value $12

I’m used to getting bold colors from this subscription, so this very wearable lipstick shade was a nice surprise! It’s a semi-matte formula with excellent pigment.

Medusa’s Makeup Gold Digger Glitter – Value $7

You’ll need a primer or other makeup product to hold this loose glitter in place. (I recommend Too Faced Glitter Glue!)

Medusa’s Makeup Witch Lash Mascara – Value $12

medusas-makeup-beauty-box-december-2016-0014

This mascara is great for a natural look. It provided a little length and excellent lash separation. Considering most of Medusa’s Makeup products are on the dramatic side, this product definitely doesn’t seem to fit the bill, though!

Verdict: This box has a value of $43. I think that’s fantastic for a $15.95 beauty box that sends full-size vegan beauty products with free shipping. I think this is a great way to try out Medusa’s Make-Up at a deep discount, and it’s definitely pushing me out of my comfort zone!

What do you think of the Medusa’s Make-Up Beauty Box?

  1. TYSM for reviewing this! It was my first monthly box from them, altho I’ve ordered from them a few times. I was nervous about getting items I wouldn’t like, but I crossed my fingers and figured I could swap what I didn’t care for.

    The lippie is going right to someone else. From looking at the web site it looked like a color that’s too nude for me, and your swatch confirms it, thank you. I hadn’t yet opened the mascara either, and since I prefer dramatic mascara, it’s going too.

    But the blush and the glitter, oh yes!! I’ve been looking for a light shade of blush because I’m so pale. At first I wasn’t thrilled about gold, because that seems pretty basic to me, but like many of their other glitters, it’s actually multi-colored, and I love it as much as their glitters I chose to buy a couple months ago. I bought their glitter adhesive then too, and I like it a lot.

    I’m glad that there are so many makeup companies making all kinds of different products, so there’s something for pretty much everyone these days. Back in the day when I was in high school and wearing light makeup most days, it was really hard to find bold colors, so I’m glad I can get all my glitter, metallic, violet and magenta on now.
