Medusa’s Make-Up October 2019 Review

Included is a card with all the products inside as well as some tips for switching to a vegan lifestyle.

There is also a $5 coupon card.

Now, on to the items!

 

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

This lipstick is a super dark aubergine shade with a glossy finish. It is sheer at first pass, but very quickly builds to full coverage. While it is much darker than I generally wear, I do love a moody fall lip, so maybe I will try this out! I do think a more red/pink tone is much more flattering on my skin tone, but I feel like with enough eye makeup to balance out the drama of this shade, it could maybe work.

A little darker than I am comfortable with, but a great formula!

 

Witch Lash Mascara in ‘Gato Negro’, 12 ml Travel Size – Retail Value $10.00

This is a product that comes ever so often in this box, and it is a pretty solid vegan mascara that I have always enjoyed. This stuff is waterproof though, and it does take a lot of work to remove. I think the fuller lashes and added length are worth it though, especially for an occasion where I need my mascara to really last.

 

Vitamin C Facial Toner, 1 fl oz – Retail Value $12.95 (currently sold out)

I am a toner addict and I use a mist twice a day, morning and night! This is an aloe-based formula which means it is super hydrating. It also has a great true mist nozzle, meaning you can use it to set your makeup without drenching your face!

 

Glam Rock Eyeshadow in ‘Rocket’, 2 g – Retail Value $9.00

I liked this shade immediately, though I generally have trouble wearing darker shadows like this. It is a true smoke with gold shimmer. Like most of the Medusa eyeshadow formulas, it is smooth and beautifully pigmented. You can wear just a little of this for a sheer, grey smoke with shimmer, or layer on a lot for an opaque and oh-so dramatic lid.

I loved this grey shade because it was almost black, but much softer!

Verdict: This month’s Medusa’s Make-Up Beauty Box has a value of $43.95 which is pretty good for a $16.95 box. I enjoyed how dark and moody the shade selections were this month, and it feels perfect for Halloween! The lipstick is out of my comfort zone, but that is often a good thing, IMO. I loved the smoked gold eyeshadow and the mascara is an old favorite. The toner was a nice addition and added an element of skincare to a more makeup heavy box. 

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? All orders are generally processed within 1-3 business days. You will receive the box month that you sign up in.

COUPON: Use code HOORAY⁠ to take 20% off your first box!

Value Breakdown: At $16.95 for this box, each of the 4 items has an average cost of $4.24.

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.

Hi Megan, thanks for the great review. Are you wearing their mascara in that photo? Because it looks pretty fantastic, particularly for a waterproof one!

And vegan.

I got the Kat von D vegan and was underwhelmed.

You have really nice full lips, so you can definitely rock a darker color!
