Each box comes with a card listing out the items included.
Medusa’s Make-Up Shadow Brush – Value $6
(This item isn’t sold individually, but a set of 4 is $24, so that’s how I got the value.)
This makeup brush is made from synthetic vegan bristles. It is very soft, and was easy to clean, too, thanks to the included brush cleaner:
Medusa’s Make-Up Brush Cleaner – Value $8
What a practical item! I’m surprised brush cleaner isn’t included in subscription boxes more often! This is a concentrated gel, so you only need a few drops plus 2 ounces of water to make the solution to clean your brushes.
It worked well, and the scent is fresh, too.
Medusa’s Make-Up Eye Dust in Lemonade – Value $7
Warning! These eyeshadows are filled to the brim and do not have any type sifter on top – the powder is loose:
But, I can’t complain too much about this container overflowing with product, right? Packaging issues aside, this eye shadow powder is amazing. It has a velvety texture, and it is also incredibly pigmented. (This little 1.5 grams of eyeshadow should last years.) Make sure to use a primer to keep the color this bold all day, though.
Lighter shades usually don’t show up well on my wrist no matter how many swipes I use to swatch it, but look at this:
That is a bold yellow! The lower shade swatched is this body shimmer:
Medusa’s Make-Up Body Shimmer in Healthy – Value $12
This is described as a body shimmer, but I would think of it as an all over highlighter.
It blends well, and can give a pretty subtle look if you blend it out well.
Verdict: This box has a value of $33. I think that’s fantastic for a $15.95 beauty box that sends full-size vegan beauty products with free shipping. On the page for the beauty box, they advertise a $40 value, so this falls short of that expectation, but I’m still happy with the value.
It’s a great way to try out Medusa’s Make-Up on the cheap, and even if they colors aren’t a great fit for me, it’s a great way to try out their formulas. (I’m not sure I can pull off that Lemonade color!)
