Medusa’s Makeup January 2019 Review
No real theme this month, just wishes for a happy new year and info about new subscription options for 6 and 12 months.
The back of the card lists the items we get this month.
Now, on to the items!
Totally Baked Eyeshadow in Fer Sure, 2 grams – Retail Value $9.00
Wow! I love this color! While I don’t wear a ton of eye shadow, I love a good reddish-gold on my lids, especially for fancy occasions. Something about it makes my light brown eyes really pop! This is a super pretty dirty pink copper that can be used in a sheer application or full throttle for metallic lids. It is so pigmented and blends out with ease.
Mystical Eye Dust in Psykhe, 3 grams – Retail Value $11.95
Every eye dust I have ever gotten from this company is so interesting in terms of all the nuanced colors hidden in the depth of the color. This pigment has shimmers in blue, gold, olive, pink, and purple in a dirty smoked plum base. You can use it heavily or lightly for different vibes and I can’t imagine this color not working with most skin tones.
Metal AF Lip Gloss in Bad Medicine, 0.2 fl oz – Retail Value $11.00
One of the beautiful things about this box is that it takes a product I usually avoid and makes me love it. I am not in any way into the chrome lip trend that is happening right now. Usually, not a good look on me. This lip gloss is, of course, the exception. In addition to being very softly metallic, it also has those wonderous mica sparkles that I love this brand for. This breaks up the metallic enough to give it dimension, while still have a little metallic edge. It is such an easy shade to wear! The formula itself drys down like a matte but stays wet looking and I didn’t find it drying at all.
Top to bottom: Metal AF Lip Gloss in Bad Medicine, Totally Baked Eyeshadow in Fer Sure, and Mystical Eye Dust in Psykhe. Gorgeous!
Lip Balm in Cha Cha Cha Cherry Bomb – Retail Value $8.95
In the winter I need a lip balm in every pocket! This sweet cherry flavored one is a great addition to my collection. It glides on thick and heavy and leaves chapped lips with instant relief.
BONUS: Medusa’s Makeup Branded Makeup Bag – Listed Value $5,00
Cute! I love having extra plastic bags for travel, and this is a great way to rep one of my favorite brands.
Verdict: Minus the bonus bag, this box has a value of $40.90 which is great for a $16.95 beauty box. I am so impressed at how incredibly wearable each and every item was this month. If you wear a more natural look or like something a little more extreme, you will get a ton of use out of all of these shades! I absolutely loved the color palette this month and look forward to adding these shades to my routine. As always, I am very pleased with the products and value from this sub.
