I love this stuff. I have a few different colours and they are all amazing! Super pigmented, beautiful buttery texture and the finish is just gorgeous. They last ages with a good primer (never tried them without). And for the price you pay, you get HEAPS in the jar, it is packed to the brim and would last forever. No complaints whatsoever.

I bought 'Brown Sugar'
It's a very pretty orangey-brown colour with red, yellow, and orange sparkles. If you're into sparkly neutrals, this is the eyeshadow for you.
The price is 7$, which isn't something i would normally get, but, you get A LOT of product. I forget how much exactly, but it would take at least a year to get rid of it, if you applied it everyday.
The packaging is not something I like. It doesn't have one of those plastic shaker things at the top, so you have to be very careful with your brush. Or you can just press it, of course.
I'm not a loose e/s fanatic but these were nice, pigmented, smooth, and excellent for layering. And if you have a dark skin tone I think this would be a beautiful blush/contour.

I've loved everything i've ever ordered from MM. My favorite being the Ultraviolence eye dust. It's an awesome lavender/pearl highlight.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair, Cool Hair: Brunette, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
I ordered 2 eye dusts: Counterfeit(green) and Vanilla Latte(neutral). So far I've only worn vanilla latte. In the pot it seems to be more on the fiery-copper side, rather than neutral like the name suggests. Its very pretty.
however I'm not sure if its just my skin but even used over a base it was HOT pink when I took a peek at myself with the car mirror!
Mind you, its an awesome pink, and very multi-dimentional, but don't buy the shade based on the name, especially if your looking for a neutral-type shade.
On another note, they are very pigmented with excellent color payoff, and I'm looking forward to trying other colors.
EDIT: I got around to trying Counterfeit, and its awesome! Its a bright green (on the site it seems to look more on the olive side, but it also depends on your monitor). It looks very similar to a fly's wing. I don't normaly wear bright colors just on their own (I'm a bit shy), so I used a very suble taupe in the crease/above the lid and blended it out.
To get the best results with this brand I highly suggest using Fyrinnae's PixieEpoxy as a base to hold it and prevent any fall out.
There is a reviewer a few posts down who was having issues with it being too sheer (shes right, and it really will be sheer with no sticky base), so if shes reading this, take my suggestion! Youll get far better payoff, even than wetting it to foil!

I find Medusa's dusts as equal contenders for Mac other pigments & a whole heck of a lot cheaper + you have the added benefit of buying from a small local company which I LOVE supporting & will continue purchasing online from them! Also, if you really really want your dusts to pop try out some poxy of some sort which will give these a foiled wet look & they really shine then!!! Love love love!

I really love this product! Highly recommend for anyone that enjoys bright colors and likes a lot of them! I love wearing them with outfits that I've picked out. They stay on long and look lovely. Haven't had any problems.

I always loved these products, they looked so bright, and they were so cheap! unfortunatley, once i bought them and tried them on, that love fizzled. I have 4 colors, tiger, volcano, helter skelter and bruiser. First off, these are the most non-portable eyeshadows i've ever seen. I put a few in my purse, so i could put them on in the car. When i reached for something later, it was like a charcoal bomb went off in my bag. The same thing happened with every color, the tops would loosen a little bit, no matter how hard i screwed them down. They loosened bit by bit, but never fully opened, yet still managed to get eyeshadow over everything. Secondly, i'm not that much of a fan of the eyeshadows themselves. Yes, they blend very nicely, and they look great in the pot. I find the only way they look very good is when theyre applied wet, or you pack them on like theres no tomorrow. I have swatches of them on my arm right now, just to reconfirm my beliefs. when swatched dry, they look sheer, and just washed out and worn. even tiger, which is there brightest orange on the website, it just looks like a light sparkly orange, not nearly as bright as i thought they would be. Volcano, unless applied wet with a primer, just looks like a little bit of red sparkle. Also, when i tried to wear these without a primer once, i accidently wiped my eyes after i applied the shadow, and it just about completely took it off my eye. I really tried to love these shadows, and i wish i could, but they just don't cut it for me. Even my coastal scents eyeshadows are 10x better than these shadows. Next up, im going to give the sugarpill eyeshadows a try, and build my urban decay collection.
EDIT: I've been playing around with these eyeshadows more and more, because i really do like the shade selection and I don't want to spend hundreds on eyeshadows. I'm still not very keen on dry use, but when i use them wet with a good primer, they really do look great! and really, for the price i think i might just pick up a few more. I'm just going to keep hoping they upgrade the packaging.

I love Medusa's Make-Up. I have been buying their make up since I was in High school (2006). Once was a local Chicago clothing and makeup store sadly they closed down. But thankfully I found their make up products online! :) Yeay.
They are all shimmery, with a satin feel to them. Fine loose powder it reminds me of powder sugar. The colors are all vibrant, long lasting and easy to blend. I also think the way they named their colors are catchy as well.
Red Baron (fuschia bright pink)
Blow (shimmer white)
Blue Balls (bright shimmery metallic blue)
Big Bird (bright lemon shimmery yellow)
Mary Jane (shimmery olive color with yellow undertone)
But what I don't understand is that they have 48 colors and back in the day (when I started buying their eye dust) they had more than 48 colors. When I asked them they said they reformulated the eye dust.
I definitely recommend this brand!

I bought one of these eye dusts in Soylent Green. Let me tell you, this is the most truly green eyeshadow I've ever seen besides Urban Decay's cream eyeshadow in Grass. It's a brilliant jewel toned emerald green. Nothing too yellow, blue, mint or olive about this. It looks beautifully foiled when applied wet. I even compared it to a green Crayola marker on my hand and I swear it's almost the exact same color except it sparkles. If you are an absolute green lover go and get this eye shadow! It's only $6-$7!
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination, Dark Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I love these eye dusts. Simply amazing and way better than MAC pigments any day. And to the poster below me who "chuckles" at the rest of us on MUA who thinks a twenty dollar eye shadow is expensive, here's a little insight: You're a lot older than the rest of us. You probably CAN buy a twenty dollar shadow. But honey, I am in college and if I can get a product that performs the same, if not better, for a lower price I am! Can I get an amen?

SUPER pigmented, plus it's mineral so it's very lightweight & doesnt fell like im wearing anything.
only problem is it spills everywhere...so you need to get sifters. All of my eye dusts have spilled at least once.
I half a little pile of yellow eyeshadow sitting on my counter right now but it's so pretty I can't clean it up o.o
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
Absolutely one of my favoite products for eyes, ever! These eye dusts come in a broad selection of colors - all that I've tried blend together easily to make new colors but can also easily be applied alone or side by side for very dramatic effects.
These are a natural, vegan, inexpensive alternative to MAC pigments and I personally like them much better.
Also, I have extremely sensitive eyes and have never had an issue with anything by Medusa's Makeup - even when I accidentally stuck a brush full of eye dust directly in my eye (yes, it hurt, but had no lasting negative effect once I rinsed)!
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination, Medium Hair: Brunette, Kinky, Medium Eyes: Brown
I absolutly love the eye dust's for Medusa's makeup.
they only sell them in a small store called kustom kulture where i live which kind of sucks, cause i don't like ordering off the internet, so i wish they had it more in my city.
and really, at about 8 dollars for a little pot (in canada) its really not very expensive.
i know where i live its always on sale like 3 for 22$ or something like that.
and as for the packaging, its eyeshadow. how bad can it really be.
its just in little twist pot like things. that you often get samples in for everyday minerals and stuff.
they have a really great selection of colors. there is only 48, but i LOVE LOVE LOVE the 48 colors they have. THEY ARE AMAZING
i think it lasts really well too. i can put it on in the morning and it will still be fine till when i get home.
i would highly recomend this product if you want a bright color, but don't wanna pay 18 dollars at MAC or whatever the price there is.
personally i really don't like MAC all that much anyways, so this is my alternative. so if you arn't into the whole expensive MAC thing, this is AMAZING! and in my opinion better then MAC.
it is also vegan, and PETA approved which is awesome.
GET THIS IF YOU CAN!
colors I own :
Studio 54 - this is a GREAT color. i love to use it under my brow, at the inner corners of my eyes and i also use it for blending sometimes.
Golden Boy - really nice gold color. I prefer this tone over the other gold shades.

I've bought a few of their eyeshadows and 2 of their eyedusts.
The electropink eyeshadow i totally 100% recomend if you want an awesome hot pink eyeshadow!! I dont much like the turqouise or the green. The purple looks good with the pink.
The dusts i got were silverado and bronze age i love them!

Edit: Two of the colors that I have are EXACT DUPES for two Ben Nye Lumiere Shadows that I bought.
Red Baron : Azalea
Blue Balls : Cosmic Blue
Price: eyedust/glitter : $6 Eyeshadow : $9
Color pay-off: EXCELLENT!!!
Color selection: great,
First off I have to say that I am a total make-up junkie. That said, I got addicted to MAC quality a few years back so please for give me for using MAC as a comparison!
I found out about this product through youtube. I looked at the site and totally fell in love with the uber bright colors and the cheap prices ($6 vs...well a MAC pigment is around $20 although you get more)
I Have 10 eye dusts in : Red Barron(a bright fuchsia), Big Bird (pearly bright yellow) and Tiger (bright cantaloupe meets orange), Purple Rain (Bright shimmery Mid-tone Purple), Ultra Violence, (Lilac - Silver), Barbarella (more purple than UV), Pennywise (shiny new penny), Magma (pink-toned metallic Red), Blue Balls ( Very Bright Blue that had a purple tint), and Soylent Green, (Clean Grass green)
Most of eyedusts are really similar to a MAC pigment in texture (imo), and yet there are really fine. Some of them Are Frosts, some are satins. I've tried other loose-dust make up (Fyrinnae: cool colors, no staying power!) and this stuff is very different!
I think the color pay off is awesome and the staying power as well. I wore Tiger with Mac's Old Gold Piggie to test the lasting power, and the Tiger outlasted Old Gold. and I even went in a hot tub that day!
In order Left to right: Top Row: Magma, Pennywise, Ultra Violence, Purple Rain, Barbarella
Bottom Row: Soylent Green, Big Bird, Blue Balls, Red Baron, Tiger
And a look with Big Bird, Tiger, and Red Baron
I also Have a video On youtube for this Look:

I adore Medusa's Makeup! It's right up there with MAC in terms of pigment and texture, and it's light years better than L'oreal's HIP line (which is more expensive than MM..go figure). Let's see...I've got the eyeshadows in Electro purple, pink, blue, indigo and turquoise, the dusts in Helter Skelter and Planet Earth and the glitter in Cosmopolitan. The dusts are wonderful. They have a huge array of colors and the pots are made to where you can screw them on top of each other for storage. The glitters are the same way. The eyeshadows are awesome, all the bright colors you can imagine, perfect for this spring's color trends. I did find, however, that the electro pink stained my eyelids when I didn't use a primer. It came off with eye makeup remover, I just had to work a little harder to get it off. A small gripe, though. At these prices and with this quality, who cares? I'll definitely be buying more!

I love the texture of this. It's the finest powder. And when they say it's shimmery, they really mean it.
My only complaint is the coloring is pretty different from what I expected, but of course that's no surprise when ordering makeup on the Internet.
I got Cupcake and Magma. Cupcake, while it is a light pink in the pot, is mostly a pretty pigmented silvery color with a pink undertone when on. It's good for blending onto other shadows (looks awesome with MAC's Sea Me Shadestick) and highlighting, but it looks too silvery by itself. If I add a tiny amount of hot pink shadow to it, it gives me the light pink I was hoping for.
Magma looked like a purplish burgundy on the various computer screens I saw it on. Someone told me is was actually blood red, and since there is no color description for it on the website, I took the other person's review. When I first got it, I had to check the name to make sure it was Magma because I thought they had sent my Penny Wise by accident. It is more like MAC's red side of Mi'Lady from their Antiquitease collection, which was a pretty coppery red. It's good quality and highly pigmented, just not what I was expecting based off of the review I was given and the picture I saw on the website. (I just want to add that I didn't get Red Barron because I was told it was more hot pink than red. I saw a picture of someone wearing it on another website and it did look kind of pink. I will note that the person on the website didn't seem to be wearing a base with it though, so the color probably wasn't as true).
I just use Magma under MAC's flammable paint to get it to a red that falls between blood and rust.
I think I might have to buy their red eyeshadow instead of eye dust as their customer gallery has a lot of people wearing the electro red eyeshadow and it seems to be more red than Red Barron.
These have to be used with a base for the staying power to really last. I use a cream base to make the colors pop. They are not nearly as bright when used alone, but they're good alone if you want some subtle color.
I'd buy them again. The quality is good, you only need a little, and it's cheap. I think I have a better understanding of the coloring now that I bought two. I will update this if the colors are a few shades lighter on my next purchase as well.

COLOR: Purple Rain, a lightish medium shimmery purple, similar to the purple Milani shadow. Super pigmented.
SIZE: It comes in a 5g jar, full to the top.
BLENDS: very, very well.
STAYING POWER: awesome, as far as I can tell.
I would def. recommend the whole Medusa's line. I also bought the red eyeshadow and the brush set. The brush set is awesome, it comes with a crease/blending brush, small eyeshadow brush, large eyeshadow brush, small smudge/eyeliner brush, and an angled eyeliner brush. AWESOME quality. Great deal for $35. The shipping was also very fast. I purchased on a Wednesday, it arrived on Saturday. I should add, the eyeshadows fit into MAC pallets.

I LOVE Medusa's makeup! I have almost all of their eye dusts and eyeshadows. I love MAC makeup, but for those who can't afford Mac, try Medusa's. Unfortunately their boutique is only here in Chicago. but you can order online their website. The owners are both awesome people. The colors are bright, they are very easy to work with, but as always a base is needed under. I recommend all colors if you are curious. I just love this brand.

(Eyeshadows, not dusts)
Ive bought 2 of their electro eyeshadows . Red and Orange.
The color payoff isn't the greatest. They are no where near the quality of MAC, or even NYX for that matter. They're not smooth, they take packing on to show up. The glitter part of them goes away on application, so theyre basically matte (which I prefer).
