August- Medusa’s Makeup Beauty Box

Hey guys! I can’t believe it’s already August, time has flown by me. But there’s always time for monthly subscriptions. Those definitely help mark the beginning of the month and give me something to look forward to. So this months’ Medusa’s Makeup beauty box gives us some more new new of recently launched products. This is probably my favorite part of getting their subscription, you get to try some of the new stuff they are constantly launching. I am so happy that are expanding and coming out more products. I’ve been following them for awhile and this the most they have expanded and rebranded products in a long time.  So let’s get down to this months’ goodies!

Born to be down:IMG-6918[56]1. Metal AF Lipgloss- Cherry Pie- $11:IMG-6920[58]IMG-6921[59]IMG-6924[60]IMG-6908[51]IMG-6912[53]IMG-6915[55]Metal AF lipgloss is one of the new launches from Medusa’s Makeup. But this is way different from a regular lipgloss, it’s a stay on metallic gloss. I have no clue what that means but after swatching it I realized it was a liquid lipstick. In the swatches above, I have two swatches. The first one is one layer and the second is two layers. I guess that’s why they called it a gloss because it kind of goes on that way. It does dry down pretty fast but gives you room to play. You definitely need a second layer to show the true color and get opacity. Me and my friend are both wearing Cherry Pie. I have little to no pigmentation, and her lips are more pigmented. I really love this so much better than their Lip Paints. This is definitely a hit for me.

2. False Lashes in Heavy- $9:These are their falsies called Heavy. At first they only had one set, which they had sent in a previous box. But I recently checked the site and they have 3 different kinds now. Those first ones had a really thin band and I learned pretty quickly I can’t do thin band falsies. My lashes are very curly and  thick, so thin lashes will get lost. Also, my real lashes almost fight the fake ones, always pushing them away from the lash line. These seem to have a thicker band so hopefully these will work for me. They come with their own lash glue and I love the heart packaging.

3. Totally Baked Eyeshadow in Whatever- $9: I really love their totally baked eyeshadows. I have only used their pressed shadows before, but the baked series are totally different. I love the theme of like 80s/90s slang for the names. The baked shadows are foiled shades and in this formula they are so pigmented. Whatever is a great silver shade. Like I have no clue how to wear this. I need a whole outfit to be planned around this shade.

4. Eye Dust in Ultra Violence- $8:This shade…… First of the name alone. If you are big Lana del Rey fan as I am, then you know why. Ultra Violence was one of her albums and song, like omg. And then this shade name plus the color???? Y’all know I am beyond the purple queen, sometimes too much purple is not enough. Ultra Violence is this gorgeous frosty iridescent purple that would be great for that inner corner highlight or layer over shadows. Give this pigment a few sprits and this will be your new favorite holo highlight.

This months’ total: $37

I really loved this months a lot. I think it was beyond worth it with the new liquid lipstick in an amazing shade. I can’t wait to try these lashes and hoping the band is better to play with. I really loved both eyeshadow shades and they are so me. I really love this brand and I think their subscription boxes are so slept on! They are also vegan and cruelty free. I think this is amazing for $16 a month and it’s and indie brand.

Thank you guys so much for reading and free to contact me with any questions you have. Stay purple!
