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.

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.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? 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 love a gorgeous red lip, especially if it isn’t matte! I was hoping the shadow would be more silver, but waiting to see it on my too pale skin to see how it looks on me. I was worried the blush would be far too pink for me to carry off and make me look like a doll. Guess I don’t have to worry about that any longer! 🙂

    Thanks for the honest review!

    • I am so tired of matte lipstick! SO happy this wasn’t. The swatch f the shadow on the Medusa page is legit silver metal, but n person it is like snow almost. Hope you have better luck with it! Thanks for reading Twyla! 🙂

  2. I received this God awful Medusa’s lipstick whitish color that makes me look morgue ready in some subscription box. I put it on and was pleasantly surprised by how soft and moisturized my lips felt, their formula for lipsticks are great!

  3. High five for honest reviews!

    • Always! <3

  4. The colors were so bad for the past two months, I finally cancelled. They used to have great shades and formulas, but something not good REALLY
    has happened.

    They killed their golden goose with the gimmicks.

    • What gimmicks?

    • That nude lipstick was when I cancelled. So ugly. And my makeup always came danaged and melted which is weird and I’ve never seen that with other beauty boxes.

      Wonderful customer service though!
