Creamsicle Translucent Lip and Cheek Cream (0.68 oz.) – $17.95
The lip and cheek stain is made without parabens, mineral oil and phthalates. The color is a bright pink and is called “acerola” but since it is a balm it looks much softer once applied to the lips. It also contains organic shea butter and I found it very moisturizing. I liked this formula a lot for lips and it’s one of my favorite items from all my Lip Love pouches to date.
Blush & Glow by So Susan (0.11 oz.) – $22.95
This blush color is called “rose rust” and has a nice shimmer to it. I like the color and formula but I just wish the sizing were more generous.
Neapolitan Palette by Jelly Pong Pong (0.11 oz.) – $17.95
These shades are all really pretty and have a nice amount of shimmer which I like for my eye shadows but they are a little too warm for my cool skin tone. I will pass them along to a friend. I found that they blend well and have a nice amount of pigmentation too.
The blush (at the top of my wrist) and all three eye shadow shades are swatched here.
Moisturizing Soft-Focus Peptide Foundation by So Susan (1.1 oz.) – $24.95
This is the first time I’ve received a skin color specific item and I hope it doesn’t become a trend, I think that would be a turn off for subscribers unless they ask for customization preferences. The color foundation they sent was called “warm beige” and the color didn’t work for me. I swatched it at the top off my wrist and it looks very unnatural/orangey because I’m so fair. I personally don’t wear foundation so this would not have been a win for me even if the color did match. Unfortunately when it arrived the pump was broken so the only way to get the product out is by unscrewing the top and dabbing it on.
Verdict: This Lip Love pouch was ok for me. I like the creamsicle lip and cheek cream and the blush and glow this month. The other two products weren’t as successful for me just based on color. The bag is adorable as always and the value is amazing – over $95 counting the bag which I am very happy with.
