After receiving a marketing email, I decided to re-subscribe to Medusa’s subscription box. I went with six months this time. Here I have Marches box, however, I started this again in February. I just never got around to posting that box. I still might as, for me, it has been the best box and I am loving one of the products (the one that roped me into doing this again). The cost of the box came to $22.50USD. I believe it is pretty close to the same as when I quit getting it last year.
Marches box is very spring like colours. Makes me hopeful the snow will quit!
Now the eye dust lid seemed to have gotten a little loose during shipping. There was a slight coating on everything. You can kind of see the sheen on the black bottle. Not a big deal since it did not come completely off. The seal was also still attached.
Cucumber Toner – $12.95USD. I received a rose one last year. This smells like real cucumber (peel and all) in my opinion. I have not tried it as I do not actually like cucumber, I do not expect the smell to linger on the skin as well. I think this will be very relaxing and cooling compared to rose one I have tried.
Witch Lash Mascara – El Gato Negro – $12.00USD. This is a black, waterproof, super thickening mascara. I did not realize this was waterproof. I have not opened it up and tried it out yet. Seeing as it is a different formula than the electric blue one I use, I will not even bother guessing what it will be like.
Disco Queen Lip Gloss – Hot Stuff – $11.95USD. I regret not trying this out but the eye look I went for did not support it. This is suppose to be a purplish red with violet pearl. I almost want to pair this with the Amour blush from them. I will be opening this sooner than anticipated.
Eye Dust – Comet – $8.00USD. In the left hand swatch I have an eye primer underneath (Urban Decay Eye Primer Potion) and on the right is an unbiased swatch. I did swatch with a brush since that is how I apply it. You can see this is a minty colour. It is also very wearable. The swatch online for this however does show it as more of an olive or moss green colour. I am no way mad about this. I once upon a time had a colour very similar.
I did not get a picture with the look I created with using the eye dust. I will update with more pictures and thoughts as I use items.
The total value of the items received had I purchased them separate comes to $44.90USD. This nearly (ten cents off) double the value of what I did pay for the box. The only thing I would not have purchased out everything would be the toner. Even taking that off it is still a higher value than what I paid.
