Medusa’s Makeup Witch Lash Travel Size, 12ml. – Retail Value $10, Listed Value $8.00

I wear contacts so I am always on the lookout for more natural mascaras because sometimes my lenses just don’t agree with my current choices. This mascara was super black and thickening. I didn’t notice any ill effects with my contacts, though sometimes it takes a few days of wearing to really tell. The hot pink tube is super cute and with all Medusa’s Makeup products, I appreciate that this mascara is cruelty-free.

Medusa’s Makeup Tropical Matte Eyeshadow in Aruba, 0.7 oz – Retail Value $9.00

This might be the whitest matte eyeshadow I have ever seen! For me, this is a good thing. I have SUPER pale skin and finding a brow bone eyeshadow light enough to work for me has been difficult. I usually have to settle for a highlighter used as an eyeshadow, but I now have a great matte option! The formula was well pigmented, had less than the usual amount of fallout, and blended very easily. FYI: I apply all eyeshadows with my fingertips because I am a barbarian who doesn’t own eyeshadow brushes. You might have a little more fallout with a brush, but you will likely feel much more sophisticated.

Medusa’s Make-Up Mystical Eye Dust in Ganesha – Retail Value $11.95

This pretty, loose eyeshadow is not a color I would have ever reached for myself, but that is the beauty of subscription boxes: you discover new things that work for you! Although this is a loose pigment, it isn’t particularly messy thanks to the little built-in sifter. The color is a very shimmery grey with warmer metallic micas in rose gold and champagne mixed in. It is buildable so you can go super sheer for a more demure look, or layer for something more dramatic. I applied it directly to my lids for a very light work appropriate look and received many compliments.

I am really pleased with both of these colors!

Medusa’s Make-Up XOXO Perfume Oil, 10 ml – Retail Value $16.00

I am someone who generally leans towards masculine scents, this perfume is not something I would personally wear. If you like hyper-feminine, slightly sugary smells, you will love this. This perfume is very sweet, with notes of amber, musk, citrus, and florals. While this scent was absolutely not for me, I do not want to minimize how lovely this product was. The velvet bag packaging is just beautiful and the travel-friendly rollerball is always a great choice for your purse. I plan on gifting this to one of my closest girly-girls, who loves scents like this one.

Verdict: This box has a value of $46.95 which is exceptional for a $15.95 beauty box. If you are into bold, vegan, and cruelty-free makeup with some of the world’s coolest packaging, this is absolutely a subscription for you. Although this is a bolder brand, every product I received could easily be used for both low-key or super dramatic looks, upping the value even more for me personally.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? As of publication, yes! All orders are generally processed within 1-3 business days. You will receive the box month that you sign up in.

I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

  1. I ALSO only apply eyeshadow with my finger. It’s just so much faster…

  2. Thank you for an awesome review! I might just give this box a try for a month to see if it works for me!

    • You are so welcome! I am much more of a skincare than makeup junkie, so I was worried this box might be a little too out there for me. I have actually used both eyeshadows each day this week and of course the mascara! I am excited to see next month and I hope you love the box too!
