This is my review on the Medusa's Makeup October 2016 subscription. I started my subscription this month after running across a Facebook Ad that listed a subscription service for all vegan, cruelty-free cosmetics. Medusa's Makeup monthly box subscription costs $15.95 per month and ships 3 days after your credit card has been charged. Each box comes with 3-5 products that are valued at $40. I also viewed some of the reviews on youtube and was really interested after seeing what products came in the August and September unboxing this year.
The first item I took out was a pair of false eyelashes and eyelash glue. The eyelashes were secured in a heart shape container. The cost of this item is $8.00.
The second and third items I pulled out were packaged together. They were Red Square lipstick ($12.00) and eye glitter in abracadabra (black; $7.00). The Red Square lipstick is a cherry red that I don't typically wear. However, the lipstick is creamy and glides on easy. The eye glitter is fairly black and doesn't really shine until you place it directly under a light.
The last item The Fix glitter adhesive ($8.00). The Fix is a bit waxy (I think it is made of bees wax) but it will hold the glitter in place.
The product value came to $35, $5 missing from the promised $40. My overall take on this October unboxing is....meh. I'm not sure if it is because I wouldn't have selected these products for myself or that my expectations were so high after watching the August and September unboxing youtube videos. I will try out the products and see if I like them, even though they are things I don't typically use. I will also give the subscription 2 more months before I determine if I should cancel it or not. Here's hoping that the next unboxing will have the Sugar Daddy lipstick!
