The May 2023 Box


Along with my beauty items, I received an info card that details what items are in the box. Hey May! Summer is just around the corner, friends, and I am beyond excited. Bright colors, sunny days -- I'm ready!

Medusa's Crystal Eyeshadow Brush  – Listed Value $8.00 (Buy the full crystal brush set for $29)


This lavender eyeshadow brush starts off our May box. I have other brushes from this set, and I love how soft the bristles are. This particular shadow brush gives an even application with shadow use. I've used the brush on all swatches and face photos in this review, so take a look and let me know what you think!

Happily Just Be. Body Spray, 1 fl oz– Retail Value $16.00


This item is an introduction for me to the sister brand of Medusa's Makeup, Happily. This body spray includes a higher concentration of fragrance oils, is made without parabens, and is purse sized - so take it on the go! This scent is bold and cheerful with floral notes.

Jelly Pong Pong Lighten Up Stick –  Listed Value $20.50


Our next item is a waterliner pencil that is used to brighten eyes. I love using a light pencil under my eyes as it makes me look more awake (especially in the mornings...I am NOT a morning person).


The pencil glided on my waterline effortlessly. This pencil can also be used on brow bones and cheek bones to give an illuminated look.

Medusa's Eye Dust (Flamingo), 1.5 g – Retail Value $9.00


If you've learned anything about me, you know how often I profess my love for both the color pink and this magical eye dust. How ironic that I'd get my faves paired together! This hot pink screams " I'm ready for summer" (which I very much am).


Before application I was a tad bit nervous about the boldness of this pink. After application I realized it's not as bright as initially thought. This is a perfectly good shadow to wear to a brunch, a day of shopping, or a night out. Super versatile!

Medusa's Baked Eyeshadow (Raven), 4 g – Retail Value $14.00


Our last item in this month's box is a sultry black shadow. I'm always so impressed with those who know how to do a smokey eye look with dark shadows. I'm not one of those people, haha, but I try my best.


I love the boldness of black shadows, but it truly is a pain to get off eyelids. My go-to makeup removal is coconut oil, which did eventually remove the shadow after 3ish attempts.

The Verdict

As always, impressed with this month's May box! How cool it is to be introduced to Medusa's sister company Happily. The body spray fragrance was fun, bold, and bright. I'm  also totally fangirling over the Jelly Pong Pong lightening stick. It immediately brightened up my eyes, making me look more alert.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? You'll likely receive the June bag. Some past boxes are also available for a one-time purchase here.

Value Breakdown: I estimate I received $67.50 worth of items this month. I think this is fantastic for only having paid $22.95.
