Medusa’s Makeup December 2018 Review
Each box comes with a card listing out the items included. This month’s theme is Unicorns!
Now, on to the items!
Glam Rock Eyeshadow in Heroes, 2 grams – Retail Value $9.00
This color is so incredibly pretty. It is a deep dirty green with bright emerald glitter. Lots of dimension here! While I would normally reserve a color this deep and bold for more special occasions, it made an incredible metallic liner when used wet and was a beautiful complement to my paler brown eyes.
Unicorn Farts Lip Sparkle, 2 grams – Retail Value $10.00
The name of this item is so silly and fun, and I always love a brand that doesn’t take itself too seriously. This balm is a bright pink and filled with glitter. It has a fruity scent that reminds me of Lip Smackers from when I was younger. The pink goes on my lips sheer and bright, and in a color I very much adore. The only con for me with this product is the glitter. I can feel it on my lips and it’s a little grainy. I wish there was an option to buy it without, as I like the formula very much. My only other comment is that the tin is small and seems only half filled, though this is a full-size product.
Disco Queen Lip Gloss in Love Machine – Retail Value $11.95
The photos of this gloss do not do it justice because this is one of those formulas you have to see in motion. The sparkles are so bright and have so many different colors! It is a sheer nude base with glimmers of purple, pink, blue, and frost. It is beautiful enough to wear alone or over your favorite lipstick. The formula itself is smooth, moisturizing, and smells like sweet frosting.
Top to bottom: Disco Queen Lip Gloss in Love Machine, Lip Sparkle in Unicorn Farts, and Glam Rock Eyeshadow in Heroes.
Magical Makeup Setting Spray, 2 fl oz – Retail Value $11.95
This spray smells like straight up alcohol until it dries down to a soft floral. It absolutely helped my makeup stay in place all day, and I love that it is light and vegan. Be sure to not over spray, or use too close to your face, as too much of this product is not a good thing, and will actually be counterproductive to your makeup’s staying power!
FREEBIE: Unicorn Hair Ties
Can we ever have enough hair ties? These cuties are pink and black and have a fun gold unicorn pattern.
FREEBIE: Unicorn Horn EyeShadow Brush
These unicorn style brushes have been all over Instagram and I am thrilled to add one so my small brush collection. It is fitting that the brush I use with the incredible eyeshadow this month should look just as magical!
Verdict: Minus the freebies, this box has a value of $42.90 which is great for a $15.95 beauty box. I really loved all but one product this month, though that lip sparkle might win me over yet. The box was unicorn overload in the best way! I appreciated the darling freebies and loved that all the items this month were exceptionally well curated.
