I decided to swatch all of my Medusa’s Makeup eye dusts and pressed eye shadows for you. Unfortunately I didn’t have any sun by the time I was finished.
Cupcake is a lighter pink than Pretty in Pink. Flamingo is a lighter pink with purple iridescence, where as Pink Cadillac is a deeper pink than Flamingo, closer to a fuschia, with purple reflect. Purple Rain is darker than Fascination.

Electro Turquoise – intense teal with micro silver sparkles
Electro Indigo – Blue-purple with micro silver sparkles
Electro Pink – perfect neon pink with micro silver sparkles
Electro White – bright white with micro silver sparkles (they always look a bit golden to me instead of silver)
These are all the colors I’ve purchased.
I have also purchased 2 of the lip glosses:
Gossip – iridescent violet pink with cherry flavor
Sparkle Mania – clear glitter with vanilla flavor
and received the following for free:
Concious – clear gloss with no flavor
I really like both of the glosses, especially Sparkle Mania, as it’s great for layering.

Here’s my review of the makeup brushes. I love them.
In general, I like Medusa’s Makeup.
Vegan Eye Dusts:
They say that they’re 1.5 grams net wet on the jar for the eye dusts at $6 each.
Their ingredients are Titanium Dioxide, Mica and Iron Oxide.
Pressed Eye Shadows:
The pressed eye shadows are supposed to be 2 grams net weight at $9 each.
Their ingredients are Talc,Laureth-4, Sorbitan, sesquiolests, Lanolin oil, Isopropyl Palmitrate, Calcium Silicate, Sodium Dehyroacetats, Trisodium EDTA, Tocopharyl Acatate, Methylparaben,Propylparaben, Ethylparaben. [+/-(may contain):Calcium Sodium Borosilicata, Mica, Titanim Oxide, Iron Oxides. (I’m not crazy about the ingredients list, by the way.)
Vegan Lip Glosses:
They’re .25 fl oz at $9 each.
Their ingredients are Silica, Polybutene, Microcrystalline Wax, Octyl Palmitate, Methylaraben, Propylparaben, Paraffinum Liquidum,Butylated Hyclroxy, Fragrance, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxide.
I have not tried any of their other products.
They ship fast, respond to emails and answer their phone. These are all good things. When I had a problem with an order, they immediately corrected it by sending out my missing product. They even included a free clear lip gloss, which was unexpected, but nice. They often include stickers and other information with their packages.
When I asked them if they made their own products or repackaged, here was their answer:
The majority of our products, eye dust, glitter, body shimmer/blush, lip gloss are all made in our Chicago facility.
