Sun Lounger – Healthy Glow Powder Bronzer (Value $24)
As always, I love the So Susan packaging! The retro palm leaf box is so cute!
The bronzer itself is wonderful, too. The color is a cool bronze, with a subtle shimmer. My only issue with this is the size – it is pretty small for a full-size bronzer.
Lockdown Luster – Shimmery Shadow Binder (Value $25)
This is my favorite discovery in the box. It’s a shimmer primer base that really stays in place! You can also layer it over matte eyeshadows if you want to add a little shimmer. (Swatched in the lower photo.)
Lumi Lip – Iridescent Lip Topper (Value $19)
Unfortunately, this lip topper was a miss for me. It’s sparkly, with a lot of iridescence and shine. It’s really gorgeous, but the glitter is a little too much lip look for me.
(Swatched in the lower photo.)
eyeshadow palette (UPDATE: turns out this is a highlighter palette) had so much potential, but…
It wasn’t too fun to open! (The good news is you can repair a broken pressed powder with a little rubbing alcohol, but I’m still going to reach out to So Susan for a replacement.)
Even with the broken palette pieces, I was still impressed with these eyeshadow shades. These are three shimmery icy blues with excellent pigment. Very Frozen! And they look lovely blended together.
Here they are swatched beneath the bronzer, eyelid primer, and lip topper:
And each So Susan Lip Love comes with a new makeup bag:
Limited Edition Makeup Bag – Value $12
Every month includes a makeup bag. In the past, the bags have been canvas, but this year they transitioned to a water/spill proof plastic material. I really liked the canvas bags, but I like this version even more – it’s very practical for makeup! (And it is lined inside!)
Verdict: This month’s So Susan Lip Love bag has a value of about $119! I think that value is fantastic for a $21 ingredient-conscious beauty subscription box. The Lumi Lip is too bold for me, but everything else is very wearable.
If you are looking for a vegan, ingredient conscious makeup subscription, I can’t recommend this one enough. The value is great, the formulas are great, and the bonus bag is always super cute!
