Medusa’s Make-Up July 2019 Review
Included is a handy info card that shows off the products in the box this month and their retail values. Looks like the theme this month is ‘The Heat Is On.’
And finally, a card letting us know that a VIP birthday box is in the works for August!
Now, on to the items!
Metal AF Lipgloss in ‘Fade to Black’, 6 ml – Retail Value $11.00
Wow! Starting off with some drama. This gloss is a charcoal/silver look formula. It did not apply well at all the first time I used it on bare lips. It was splotchy and patchy, and nearly impossible to get great coverage with. It dried tacky, and the patchiness was even worse if I let my lips rub together. I decided to try it again over a lip balm, and that worked wonders for application. It went on much smoother, and I was able to achieve more coverage. I still think this formula could use more work, but if you love metallic lips, this would certainly be a fun lappy to try.
I took this in front of a window, to try and catch all the metallic shimmer.
Glam Rock Eyeshadow in ‘Hot Love’, 2 g – Retail Value $9.00
This eyeshadow is really interesting! It looks like a pale pink in the pot, but when applied it is almost a smoked pink/grey base with electric pink shimmer. It is wildly subtle, but still very special. I found that for myself -as I am blending challenged- the areas that didn’t have light hitting the sparkle looked a little grey, and slightly odd on my lid. Regardless, it is still really beautiful and I don’t have anything like it in my collection.
Here you can really see some of the pink shimmery flash. That shimmer also ended up all over my blue mascara since I applied the eyeshadow after the mascara.
Witch Lash in ‘Electric Blue’, 12 ml – Retail Value $12.00
I just assumed this was a black mascara until I opened it to try it and HELLO BLUE. This color is gorgeous. I gave it a try, and my lashes were blue at the first stroke. This mascara didn’t really add much volume, so I continued adding layers which did end up adding a little bit of clumpiness. I tried it again over my normal mascara and I actually liked adding just a little bit of blue to the ends of a few lashes. It was a really subtle way to try a colored lash.
This is with about 3 coats.
Moonlight Hilighter Loose Pigment, 3 g – Retail Value $12.00
This is a loose ivory-colored powder that is pretty close to transparent on my skin, except for the warm golden glow when it catches the light. This is a great highlighter on my skin, and I liked it even more when added to a few drops of face oil or a liquid foundation.
Top to bottom: Metal AF Lip Gloss in ‘Fade to Black’, Glam Rock Eyeshadow in ‘Hot Love’, Moonlight Hilighter
Verdict: This month’s Medusa’s Make-Up Beauty Box has a value of $44.00, which is a pretty good total for a $16.95 box! This assortment is exactly the sort of wild indie makeup I would expect to find from this company. Though the lipgloss wasn’t a great formula for me personally, I loved the eyeshadow and loose powder. The blue mascara was such a fun surprise, and I was impressed with the color payoff of such a bright blue.
