It feels like forever and a day since I posted a mascara review! It’s been at least a season or two. Today I’m reviewing the Medusa’s Makeup Witch Lash Mascara. I received a full size bottle in Last Spring’s Luxe Box so I’ve had a while to try it out and see how I feel about it. Let me know how you feel about Medusa’s Makeup and if you’d like to see more of their products reviewed! ❤
At A Glance
Medusa’s Makeup is a vegan and cruelty free makeup brand based in Chicago. The brand is known for it’s subscription box and vibrantly coloured beauty products.
Witch Lash Mascara is a lengthening and volumizing mascara that retails online for $12USD and is available in three shades — Black Noir, Electric Blue, and Twilight. I am reviewing the shade Black Noir. The website states that the product is “Made in PRC”, or in other words, made in China. I’m not sure how a vegan and cruelty free brand justifies manufacturing in a country where all cosmetics MUST be tested on animals, but take that as you will.
Medusa’s Makeup Witch Lash Mascara has simple packaging. The tube is black with a gold cap and lettering and the rubber wand is long and skinny with short bristles. The wand feels pretty flimsy to me and because it’s so long it bends when I’m trying to apply mascara to my top lashes.
What I Like
- Separates and thickens lashes
- Skinny wand makes it easy to coat base of lashes.
- No flaking
- Long lasting
What I Don’t Like
- Flimsy Wand. It’s hard to get the curl and volume I want because the wand bends so much during application. I feel like I’m going to break it.
- Not Water Resistant. I don’t need my mascaras to be waterproof, but I don’t like turning into a racoon when it rains!
- Vegan Brand Manufactures in China
I’ve enjoyed using Medusa’s Makeup Witch Lash Mascara. The formula does a good job of not flaking and dries quickly. I even like the way the bristles are designed on the wand to separate and lengthen, but because the wand is so flimsy I don’t get the curl I want. I need to use an eyelash curler whenever I apply the mascara because I can’t work the wand to give me enough volume. With a stiffer wand I would consider a repurchase, but as the packaging currently is I won’t be ordering a second bottle.
