This is me, still behind. I feel like the entire month of January just slipped right past me between vacation and gatherings with friends, and I just haven’t quite had time for continuing to catch up with these posts, but hey, here I am now with Medusa’s Makeup from December 2016.
- With Lash Mascara – 12 mL / $12 – (Full size product) This was a new item as of this shipment, so it was neat yet again to try something new! I love the applicator wand and the consistency is just right – not too thick or thin. It did seem to flake a little too easily and I noticed that the ingredient list contains parabens, so while this isn’t going to replace any of my favorites, it’s fun to get a chance to try it out.
- Lipstick – 3.5 g / $12 – (Full size product) The color included was, “Sugar Daddy,” a warm, beigey neutral. The color doesn’t work with my skin – in fact, it nearly identically matches my skin color, so when I wear it, it blends my lips right into my face. Not an attractive look, IMHO. I would’ve loved to see a more wintery rich plum sort of color in here.
- Glitter – 2 g / $7 – (Full size product) The color included was, “Gold Digger,” which is a sparkly gold, perfect for New Year’s! I love using glitter like this as eyeliner, so it was already put to use for New Year’s Eve festivities.
- Blush – 10 g / $12 – (Full size product) The color included was, “Dangerous Liaison,” a bright pink, and a color that works well on me since I’m pretty naturally bright rosy pink in my cheeks anyway. I don’t tend to wear a lot of blush, but will brush some on if I’m using foundation just to brighten me back up, so this will get some use. Also doubles as a great eyeshadow color.
That’s all! The total value this month comes to $43 which is great for a shipment that only costs $15.95 including shipping every month. I’ve been thinking about cancelling this one in the near future since I’m on product overload and while I love Medusa’s Makeup products, I have plenty now! This box is a great way to work vegan products into your routine, though the only caveat is that a good deal of their products do contain parabens. January’s shipment just arrived too, so that will be getting posted soon!
