Medusa’s Makeup March 2019 Review
Included is a handy info card that shows off the products in the box this month and their retail values.
Another promo card for the new skincare line called Love Byrd with a 10% off code. The site is active now and it looks like they have a curated selection of cleansers, toners, and serums!
Now, on to the items!
Witch Lash Mascara, 12 ml – Retail Value $12.00
We got the travel size version of this product back in November, but I did like it so I am pleased to have a full size in my stash now too. This version seems a lot more waterproof though, which looks great on my lashes but is extra work to get off. The brush shape is my favorite, all dense bristles and not too big, meaning I can evenly coat each lash and still get into the corners. It also doesn’t seem to bother my contact lenses, which is a WIN!
Cucumber Facial Toner, 1 fl oz – Retail Value $12.95
This stuff was beyond refreshing. I can only imagine spritzing this in the summer after keeping it in the fridge! The smell of cucumbers is very fresh and strong and the mist itself is mainly aloe leaf juice and cucumber water, both of which are incredibly hydrating. I feel like this would be an amazing product to use for relief after sunburns. You can also use this day to day as a toner, or even just for a little energizing pick me up.
Disco Queen Lip Gloss in ‘Hot Stuff’, 0.20 fl oz – Retail Value $11.95
I have gotten Disco Queen glosses before and I really like the formula. They aren’t gritty, and they feel a little more sophisticated on then some other glittery glosses out there. This color looked really dark in the tube but I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was more of a sheer color, which added a beautiful deep plum flush to my lips and some pretty blue-leaning glitter. This is one of those glosses you can easily toss in your purse and reapply without needing a mirror. It had a pleasant, sweet scent and is a great color for spring.
Eye Dust in ‘Comet’, 1.5 g – Retail Value $8.00
This color is so very pretty, but totally out of my comfort zone! A true mint color with a strong golden shimmer, this loose powder is very buildable, meaning I can try this shade out very lightly to get my feet wet. I feel like this sort of formula could also be blended with your cream highlighter for a cooler golden glow.
You can see how sheer the lip gloss is here, but the camera wasn’t able to really capture all the dimension of the glitter. The eye dust is pretty accurate, and you can see that halo of golden shine around the edges!
Verdict: This month’s Medusa’s Makeup box has a value of $44.90 which is awesome for a $16.95 beauty box. I will admit that the eye dust is a tough color for me personally, but I look forward to experimenting with it. I am pleased with the big tube of mascara and I adore the lip gloss alone or as a topper to a favorite lipstick. The cucumber toner is literally like breathing summer in and makes my skin feel so cool and refreshed. This sub always has a great value, and for being a less expensive cost, I highly recommend it if you love indie makeup and getting a monthly treat in the mail!
