Liptensity Jelly Pong Pong Lip Gloss – Value $19.95

so-susan-october-2016-011

This lip gloss is HIGH shine, good pigment, and not very sticky either – I’m impressed with the formula!

Cheek Jelly Lip & Cheek Stain – Value $17.95

This stain packs a punch in pigment! A little goes a long way, so you will be using this tube for a while! I prefer this color as a cheek stain, and I just used a few dots and blended them out for a subtle pink color.

Here are both the lipgloss and cheek stain swatched:

The cheek stain is at the top, and I blended it in to show a more natural color. (Though, as a lip stain I probably wouldn’t blend out as much.)

Trifle Cosmetics Creamsicle – Value $17.95

I wasn’t sure what this product was at first based on the name! Turns out, it is a tinted balm! Here it is swatched:

I really like the color and shine, but I will caution that it is a little sticky!

Angled Blush Brush – Value $24.95

This brush has a good weight and feel to the handle, and the brush bristles are super soft too – it is a quality brush!

And each month includes a new canvas makeup bag! Value – $10?

Each bag includes a colorful print on one side, and blank canvas on the opposite side:

And it is lined inside!

Verdict: This month’s So Susan Lip Love bag has a value of about $81! (Or $91 if you include the value of the canvas makeup bag.) I think that value is fantastic for a $21 ingredient-conscious beauty subscription box. I would have preferred the Creamsicle balm formula to be less sticky, but otherwise, all the beauty products are wins for me, too.

What do you think of this month’s So Susan Lip Love subscription?

  1. So glad I cancelled. This looks just like the same stuff as usual.

  2. I get this subscription but I’m hoping to get another of the Liptensity. If anyone has one to swap please keep me in mind because I will swap you more than RV for it. I’m on the swap site so please find me. The color is really good for me. Please and thank you 🙂

    • I will find you on the swap site as soon as I get home tonight and can take a picture and list it. Thanks

    • It was a little pink for me so I didn’t bother swatching mine. I will throw mine up on the swap site as well. I do love these Lip Love bags, but the lip colors seem to be hit or miss

  3. I fell in love with So Susan when I got a jello shot lip/cheek stain in a Lip Monthly bag. It’s one of favorite things I ever received in a sub box. So when I discovered MSA, and through you the LipLove bag, I was over the moon. Only 3 months in and I am not disappointed. Their products are great quality. I will keep subscribing for a long time to come!

  4. I REALLY want this bag! Not the contents, just the bag. Anyone want to swap?

    • Colleen, I have the bag to swap! Are you on the swap site? I’ll post it there!

      • I am!!! I’ll send you a request as soon as I find you! YAY! I love this MSA community!

      • Where is the swap site? Do you have the link?
        Thanks

        • The swap site is http://swap.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/. You can also see the link at the top of the page. You might be added to a waitlist, but when I did it the wait wasn’t very long!

  5. I need this bag. I really hope there’s a Black Friday deal, but I’ll be getting it either way. The products are cute and I’d use them.

  6. This month was my first bag from so Susan. I loved it! The matching bag and postcard are really cute and all the products were great. The trifle stuff I used on my cheeks, not lips, and it blended out beautifully and not sticky at all. The brush is really nice!
