    Lipstick in ‘Lydia’, 3.5 g– Retail Value $12.00

    This sort of shade is exactly what I expect to see in the subscription. It reminded me so much of MAC 4Eva but with more of a satin finish. I am really impressed with this lipstick! Can I wear this color? Absolutely not! That doesn’t take away from how great the pigment and formula are. If you are on the hunt for a bold, true purple lipstick, this might be your new fave!

      Disco Queen Lip Gloss in ‘Roller Girl’, 0.2 fl oz – Retail Value $11.95

      I like the lip glosses from this brand and this one is a real treat. Sheer, pink, and oh-so-sparkly, this is summer lips incarnate. The formula itself is thicker, but not sticky, and works beautifully alone or over another color. I love the bright flecks of pink and gold shimmer.

        Glitter in ‘Jupiter’, 3 g – Retail Value $8.00

        I was surprised at how subtle this glitter was. The palest pink and loaded with sparkle, it would be a beautiful choice as a highlighter or lid cover. It has enough pink hue for it to also be a great sheer wash of blush.

          False Lashes – Retail Value $9.00

          I don’t wear falsies, but I can rarely be convinced to give them a try for super fancy occasions. I will probably stash these in the hopes that I end up doing something exciting someday.

            EXTRA: Koozie – Listed Value $5.00

            Also included was a sassy koozie to keep your drink of choice cool in the summer heat.

            Verdict: This month’s Medusa’s Makeup Beauty Box has a value of $40.95, which is good for a $16 box filled with indie beauty. I think this month was really great, and loved that purple lipstick! I have just the friend in mind for it and I can’t wait to surprise her. The lip gloss is one of my new faves and I won’t be sharing it. The glitter was surprisingly wearable, and has multiple uses. If you love indie makeup in exciting shades with unique formulas, you can’t go wrong with this sub!

            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’m so glad I just read your review. I got my box today and was pretty convinced I couldn’t use anything but the koozie! 😄
              I’m terrible at applying lashes and these don’t look very impressive anyway. While purple has always been my favorite color, and I have been known to rock pretty darn purple-y lip glosses, mostly in my youth, this shade is just…something else. Even for people who can technically pull it off, I just don’t like it.
              The gloss looked gorgeous BUT it appeared to be far more glittery than the other Disco Gloss I have from them. Like the glitter was chunkier or something. Still stunning, but I thought at 43 I would look ridiculous. However, luckily I can usually pass for quite a bit younger and after seeing your swatch it seems so much more wearable. than I expected.
              Now for the loose glitter/pigment. The peachy pink, almost duo-chrome sparkle is BEAUTIFUL in the pot. I don’t normally like loose pigment but after holding it up to my blue eyes I decided to make an exception because it really made my peepers pop! Unfortunately, after seeing your swatch I don’t think I’m going to keep it. I’d have to really layer it on (and on…and on…) to get the opacity I was anticipating. I don’t like spending that much time on one product. I do think it’s still lovely and as you said, would make a great blush/highlight hybrid to shorten your routine without sacrificing the glam.
              Thanks for cheering me up with another fantastic and realistic review, Megan!

            2. I don’t consider this to be an indie company since the makeup is made for them in PRC. They only distribute it.

            3. Is that friend me? Hehe! That shade of purple is my summer go to 🙂

              • It could be! I love the color and envy you for rocking it!
