Medusa’s Makeup February 2019 Review
Looks like there is a new line launching called Lovy Byrd. Cute! While it still hasn’t launched yet, I am excited to see it and get more info.
Now, on to the items!
Glam Rock Eyeshadow in Star Dust, 2 g – Retail Value $9.00
I am not sure how I feel about this shadow. It is kind of chunky (for lack of a prettier word) in terms of shimmer. It also is a very cool toned shine, which I am not sure is the best compliment for my skin. It is also just not super pigmented in general, and there is quite a lot of fallout from the pan when you use it. I am torn because I generally love shades like this for my browbone, but this one was just not there for me.
Red Square Lipstick, 3.5 g – Retail Value $12.00
This lipstick is RED. It glides on like straight up butter and has a pretty sheen. I am so thrilled it is not matte! It was decently long wearing and if you top it with your favorite balm it works like a jelly stain. Perfection!
Limited Edition Amour Blush, 3 g – Listed Value $14.00
I would never call this a blush myself because it has virtually zero pigmentation. Though it lacks in terms of color payoff, the shimmer is just beautiful. It has this subtle yet bright ice blue/purple flash that surprised me by working really well on my fair skin. It is almost like a micro-shimmer. It makes a great highlight, just probably don’t ditch your actual blush.
Top to bottom: Glam Rock Eyeshadow in Star Dust, Red Square Lipstick, Blush Amour (barely visible)
Super Plush Vegan Blush Brush – Retail Value $9.00
I love a brand new fluffy blush brush! This all black number is super sleek and the gold logo is really luxe. It is also vegan.
Verdict: This month’s Medusa’s Makeup box has a value of $44.00 which is great for a $16.95 beauty box. Though the eyeshadow was not my cup of tea, I liked the lipstick very much and I am looking forward to playing more with the “blush”. The blush brush is really nice and also works well with a general translucent powder. I feel like the options this month were really demure for the usual shades from this sub, but it was a nice change of pace.
