This is my second shipment for Medusa’s Makeup monthly subscription. The shipment arrived in a metallic purple bubble mailer and everything inside is cruelty-free with most items being vegan as well. The packaging is minimal which is great since it’s less waste/recycling to get rid of. I’m all for keeping it simple when it comes to packaging/shipping. This arrived on October 22nd, but I’m just getting around to posting about it today. It looks like the shipment is processed on the anniversary date of your sign up, so if you signed up the 5th of the month, it’ll process and ship then, but if you were later in the month like me, you’re one of the last shipments going out. I guess that makes it easier on them for shipping so there’s not one HUGE massive push to get everything out at once, but it is a little bit of a bummer since you see everyone else getting their shipments before you. Not a big deal though since I’m a spoiler junkie and usually find out what I’m getting before it arrives anyway!
- Deluxe False Eyelashes – 1 set / $8 – (Full Size Product) I saw these I think in an email and was hoping they’d make it into this shipment, and they have! It’s a fairly reasonable length for false lashes and I like that the length of the individual lashes is varied so they look a little bit more natural and blend into your own lashes. I’m going to have to find a reason to give these a try!
- Lipstick – 3.5 g / $12 – (Full Size Product) The color is, “Red Square,” and is a bright fuchsia-strawberry red. The product goes on velvety smooth and is a wonderful vegan formula. The color comes out a bright fuchsia pink on me and might be a hair brighter than what I’d pick out for myself, but this gives me a chance to try something outside of my comfort zone.
- Cosmetic Glitter – 3 g / $7 – (Full Size Product) The color is, “Abracadabra,” and is a black glitter which makes it perfect for use as a glitter eyeliner! It would probably go with the eyelashes really well for a little extra sparkle.
- The Fix Glitter Adhesive – 2 g / $8 – (Full Size Product) Well if you’re including glitter, you have to include an adhesive, right? It’s a natural wax that makes the glitter stick to your skin and stay put.
The total value comes to $35 which well covers the cost of $15.95 per month. I love that there’s a mix of makeup and practical stuff like the glitter adhesive, so it’s giving me more than just fun makeup to play with but also good base items to have on hand, plus they complement the other items included and work well as a shipment together. Looking forward to November’s shipment!
