Sorry that I’ve been a bit AWOL over the past few days; things have been really busy and I haven’t had much time to write.
I wanted to share some products that I’ve been trying out over the past few weeks today. Since receiving the Lip Paint in my Little Known Beauty Box I have wanted to try out some more Medusa Makeup products.
Medusa does produce their own beauty box for £15 plus postage. In it you get between three and five full sized makeup items. I decided to try the box because it seemed the easiest way of trying out multiple items for a fraction of their actual price.
Medusa Makeup is a cruelty free and vegan brand that started in America. Everything retails at a reasonable price. For single items you pay no more than £10, however they sell collections for a fair bit more.
My box came really quickly and contained four items; three being makeup, and the other a face mask. All the items looked stunning; I love the logo for the company and the packaging is really well put together for the price. I couldn’t wait to put everything to the test.
SpaLife Grapefruit Facial Mask $3.50
This is a sheet mask, which I’m really not used to using. The mask was a bit large for my face, but the product itself was lovely. This is a very refreshing face mask. I left this on my face for about ten minutes then rubbed any excess serum into my skin. I did look more awake, although I didn’t notice any other benefits on my skin. I probably wouldn’t use this again, but I did enjoy using it. I can’t find this on their website, but it came in the box. Maybe they include other vegan brands in their box from time to time.
Eye Dust in Karma Chameleon £7.51
This is one of my favourite items that I’ve tried. This is a glittery duo-chrome pigment that appears to shimmer either blue, red or brown depending on the light. It is stunning. It does remind me of the Urban Decay Moondusts but in a loose powder form. I have been wearing this on top of my other eyeshadows to make my eyeshadow pop a bit more. It is surprisingly long lasting and can be worn with or without a glitter adhesive.
The Fix Glitter Adhesive £6.76
This is a solid glitter glue. It does help glitters stick to the lid better, and does make it look more dramatic. However, you only need a tiny amount, otherwise this does slip and slide around the eyelid. I had some transfer onto my brow bone the first time that I tried this product. However, since reducing the amount of product, it is a lot easier to use.
Loose Blush in Sex on the Peach £9.01
My favourite blush used to be Bare Mineral’s Swoon. It was a limited edition shade from the True Romance collection. This shade is a great dupe for that. In the pot it looks a really scary glittery pink shade. However, once it’s blended out it leaves a lovely glowy matte peach shade on the cheeks. It is gorgeous, and really long lasting throughout the day. A little product goes a long way, so this will probably last me ages.
Lip Paint in Bang £9.01
I didn’t get this in the box, however I wanted to include it in my first impressions. This is the product that made me want to try more Medusa Makeup items. This is a liquid lipstick, and it is amazing. The formula is really comfortable and lasts a really long time. This does not transfer at all. It does crumble slightly around the inner part of the lip, however it leaves a gorgeous stain behind. I really want to try other shades in the lip paints one day; they are amazing.
So so far, I have been impressed with my first impressions of medusa Makeup. I am getting another box next month to try a few more new items. I have definitely found a few that I will be including in my makeup routine for the near future.
Have you tried any Medusa makeup before? What are your thoughts?
Have a nice day guys!
