Each box comes with a card detailing the month’s products and prices.
So Susan Crème Couture (.11 oz.) – $16.00
The Crème Couture blush I received was the Paprika color. It’s a pretty peach shade. The formula is very blendable and not too bright which I like. It dries to a more powdery finish than the other cream blushes I’ve tried in the past. The card didn’t mention a color so I don’t know if everyone got the same shade. On the So Susan website the blush is priced at $19.20. I’m not sure why on the card it’s listed as only $16.00. This formula is made without mineral oil, phthalates and is also fragrance free.
Supercharged by Jelly Pong Pong (.07 oz.) – $22.95
This shadow is made without mineral oil, phthalates or parabens and is vegan. The blue color is too pigmented for me as a shadow but I may try it as a liner. The bronze color is great for me! Both colors have some sparkle in them which I like.
Trifle Lip & Cheek Jam (.20 oz.) – $22.95
This water-based lip and cheek tint is a too bright for my fair coloring. I’ve yet to find a tint that works for me unfortunately. This formula is made without mineral oil, phthalates or parabens.
So Susan Luminaire (.11 oz.) – $19.95
This creamy stick illuminator is made without mineral oil, phthalates and is fragrance free. It’s a beautiful color and I love wearing a highlighter like this on my cheeks and above my eye brows so this will come in handy. I feel like I rarely see highlighter sticks in my beauty subscription boxes so I love this addition! The Luminaire is selling for $23.94 on the Su Susan website – more than the price listed on the card (just like for the Crème Couture) so I’m wondering if they recently raised their prices.
Verdict: I enjoyed my first Lip Love Pouch. The retail value of the items (including the pouch) in this month’s Lip Love totals approximately $94 which is a great value! The bag is adorable and I’ll definitely use the crème couture and luminaire . While not every item is personally for me I liked the variety of items sent. I also learned that Trifle, Jelly Pong Pong and Su Susan makeup are all made by the same So Susan company. Unlike some beauty boxes which carry products made by various manufacturers, it appears this bag sticks to So Susan brands only.
