I was so impressed with my first experience of this company’s cosmetics and skin care line It was only natural to want more! Indeed there are so many wonderful products available online from Laura’s  website that you will always be trying more, trust me.

This time around I am trying two makeup items and a skin care item. Firstly, I tried the blush in Sweetheart a Hydrasheer Pressed Blush that has a rosy matte finish that applied beautifully and stayed on all day effortlessly..This shade I think is extremely versatile and would work for many skin tones. It sells for $29.99

Secondly, I tried the Matte Rose Lipcolor which is a pinkish soft colour that has great pigment and is very moisturizing which is perfect for any time of year but especially nice for  the summer months, I wear  lipstick everyday!!Its has organic bees wax and shea butter.Rain or shine this  will become my go to!!It sells for $19

The third item in my Lux Bag was an item from their skin care line ,20% Vitamin C Serum. This couldn’t have come at  a better time as it promises to be the perfect elixir for  aging and sun damaged skin ,both categories I fit into.Actually last week I received a little too much sun as I was overwhelmed to see it.

Medusa Makeup Subscription Beauty Box (May 2017)

I am always so excited to get my Medusa Makeup Subscription Beauty Box each month! I try and not to look at others posts do I can be truly excited but I always look and it’s fine because I am always happy regardless! This month did not disappoint, as it contains four items! First being a new to company item their baked eyeshadow in Bitchin, a shimmering champagne colour that is perfect especially for this summer.It glides on perfectly with strong pigmentation!

Wearing everything from my May Medusa Makeup Box

Second item is another new product to Medusa is their Lip Paint Remover which will come in handy as their Lip Paint does not budge at all. I did a video last month running my hand under water and it stayed put! So I think I will like this and it comes in a glass bottle which is very nice.

Thirdly was a Lip Paint in the colour Shag, which is a peachy neutral for me, another great item for summer.Its definitely beach proof, waterproof etc! You will be good to go girl the day with little touch ups needed!

Forth item is my favourite item of this box is the Glitter in Pegasus, which is exactly what it looks like . Super fine glitter that shimmers in purple, lavender, pink, and translucent , my favourite!!!It will be perfect for festival season this summer. It’s light and ethereal so you can go little or go big if you choose but will not be disappointed either way!

All in all I am very pleased with this months Beauty Box and  will use each and every item . Now I can’t wait to see what next month will be… always my obsession starts immediately after this!! Stay tuned or sign up and get surprised each month for yourself! MedusaMakeup.com This months value was $38 US and still great value for us Canadians. I hope next month contains Pompeii eye dust because Iam a tad obsessed with that right now… here’s hoping!!

Medusa Makeup Subscription Beauty Box (April 2017)

IMG_7937

This month in our Medusa Makeup Subscription Beauty box we received 4 items. Firstly a blush inJezebel, which I was a little disappointed about only because we have already received a blush in another colour months previous.But it looks lovely and the compact is very large and solid with a mirror.

Secondly,I received a eye dust in the colour Helter Skelter.One can never have too many of these because they really are super pigmented and wear very well.This is a smoky dark grey.

Thirdly, I received a Eyeliner Seal, which is very interesting Mix eye dust and seal to create a paste and apply. Haven’t tried it yet but I will for sure

Lastly I received a medusa Makeup brush for eyeliner.The bristles are soft and I feel it will work nicely with the  seal I got with it.

All in all I happy that there were four items all of which are wonderful.Although next  months I wish for five items and some of their more matte eye dusts in neutrals or their new items.

Medusa Makeup Subscription Beauty Box for March 2017

IMG_7544

Medusa Makeup has really stepped up their game this month! This month consisted of 4 products and one of which they introduced their new Lip Paint in the colour Get Lucky. I am so happy to report that this product is awesome and does what it says it will do! Stays on and has great pigment!and I love this colour!It is my favourite shade of pink !! I am very pleased with this because I dislike lipstick that doesn’t stay put!! Which brings me to my next product Lydia their regular lipstick that doesn’t stay put and I render this useless to me and usually give to my daughters. Now knowing that the lip paint is soooo great I don’t want this in my boxes anymore!I am glad that they kept a theme this month and provided a green glitter in Wasabi, it is beautiful and I love their glitter and will definitely wear. Although, I am hoping for a matte Eye Dust and a gel liner for next month!! My favourite third product was actually on my wish list for this month to the point where I emailed them to have it added to my box when I was told it was in this month subscription box! This is the Stick It, which is used  as a adhesive for their eye Dust. Very happy about this! Also, their cards that tell of the subscription boxes have improved as well! They are more informative, attractive and all in all are put together beautifully! It tells of this months value, Instagram post and win format which is new!! As well as there presence on Instagram is greater as well.All in all  this is a win win box with excellent value even in Canadian funds.image

Topbox March 2017

I was so pleasantly surprised with my march topbox this month!This was a full makeup box!!!!! No samples of foot creams etc, just three items but really great items. What made this box extra good was that i got my wish list items that were 2 Ofra eyeliners.Both the same colour Turquoise which is odd but I have been wanting to try this brand for forever so this was great, plus they are waterproof and can be used as lip liner as well! This colour is beautiful!These are seriously waterproof, smudge proof,they don’t budge!On their website each is priced at $17.51 Canadian!My third item was a Model co. Power Lash black mascara . It doesn’t say waterproof but here’s hoping it has stay power?On their website it was priced at $9 American for the small, however this is a large full size! Value yes!!!

Medusa Makeup Subscription for February 2017

This is my February Medusa Makeup Subscription box .

img_7204

February 2017 box

This box contains a new item for the Medusa Company , a hot pink kabuki brush which is very soft and of very good quality. The second item is my very first highlighter which is a perfect accompaniment for the brush! The highlighter is highly pigmented and has a golden shimmering effect. I think this will work very well for me, especially this summer! The size is quite large and a loose mineral powder called Moonlight. The third item in this box was a wonderful Eye Dust called New Wave and is powerfully colourful.It is ,as well ,a mineral pigment loose eyeshadow. Both come with sifters and are easily applied! The colour is so vibrant and iridescent!

This being a February box I was hoping for some pink Eye Dust and/or glitter and was a little surprised when I saw the blue Eye dust but it’s very beautiful and I love it, perhaps the blue would have more appropriate for March? These are little concerns considering this box is entirely Makeup which is mostly what women or me anyways want in my boxes! Initially they promised 3-5 full size products in each box. Usually 4, never 5 and first time only 3. Thrilled there isn’t lipstick or lipgloss as I think they need to improve their formula is a understatement! But their forte is without a doubt their eye dust and glitter. This box isn’t for everyone but it’s definitely for me! I like neutrals but that exactly why I am loving the addition of these to my collection for variation! Not to mention the anticipation each month of what’s inside the box!!! Even with the exchange and shipping it’s still great value!!!!
