Love Byrd Cosmetic Bag – Estimated Retail Value $2.99

To start the new year off in fun style, Medusa’s Makeup had a bonus mystery item this month! This box’s mystery item was a cute little Love Byrd branded cosmetic bag. I find cosmetic bags super useful for makeup and beyond.  They serve great for travel and household items, so I never complain about getting another one 🙂

Medusa’s Loose Glitter Eyeshadow, 3 g – Retail Value $8.00

This Medusa signature loose glitter is in the color Mystique, and I’m really digging the bluish-green mermaid vibes it’s giving off! This glitter can be applied to eyes, lips, and face.

I agree with Medusa’s site: this glitter really does mimic a princess movie fairy dust! I really like that the product is buildable, so you can get a hint of color or bolden it! It’s all up to you.

 

Love Byrd Gentle Foaming Face Wash, 2 oz – Retail Value $14.00

This Love Byrd face wash is fragrance free (like seriously, not even a little bit of fragrance), and states it’s for all skin types. While I use prescription face wash so didn’t try this on my face, I tried this on my hand and it felt light and hydrating. This face wash contains coconut oil, olive oil, and sativa seed oil, leaving your skin with a soothing feel and glow!

 

Brenda Dylan Kelly Lip Cream , 4.5 ml – Retail Value $14.00

I think every woman needs a bold red lip in their collection of makeup. Red is such a power color, and makes me feel confident knowing I can walk in the board room or the dance floor and SLAY. All that to say, I really appreciate a good red lip.

 

The swatch on my arm was a lot bolder than the lip cream applied to my lips.  I still enjoyed the rich color.  This cream didn’t last as long as a stain might have, so just know you’ll need to reapply after eating or in the middle of your day!

 

Medusa’s Makeup Totally Baked Eyeshadow, 2 g – Retail Value $12.00

Our last item is a smokey eyeshadow in the color stoked by Medusa’s Makeup.  I generally stick to brown and gold toned eyeshadows because I know that works for me.  But this grungy color was intriguing.

 

I really love how this shadow gives you the smokey eye look without having to do all the hard work of achieving that look. This is great for both beginners to the dramatic eye look and for those who have already nailed it!

Verdict: I enjoyed this month’s Medusa’s Makeup box. The excitement for the new year was super evident with fun product colors such as the mermaid blue in the glitter shadow, and bold red in the lip cream! The bonus mystery gift served as a nice way to get us all excited for a new year. I received $48 worth of items  not including the surprise mystery gift.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you’ll likely receive the February box. Orders are generally processed within 1-3 business days.
