Each box comes with a card detailing the month’s products and prices.

Now, on to the items!

So Susan Cosmetics Gemstar Lip Topper – Value $24

This lip gloss provides high shine, a wash of color, and a ton of iridescent shimmer! (And it smells like watermelon candy!!) It is a tad sticky – but nothing too bothersome.

Mirabella Blackmail Eye Crayon – Value $25

This eyeliner crayon glides on SO smoothly! It sets pretty quickly and is smudge-proof after that, so blend out quickly if you are going for a smoky eye look!

Here it is swatched beneath the lip gloss:

Trifle Cosmetics Sugar Pear Sublime Lip Scrub – Value $17.95

So Susan sends out lip scrubs pretty often, but they smell so good I can’t complain! This sugar scrub smells exactly like what you’d hope a sugar pear scrub would smell like – sweet and decadent, but not artificial. The oils are very moisturizing, too.

Jelly Pong Pong Cupid’s Arrow Contour Brush – Value $24

I have to admit I haven’t gotten into the unicorn trend yet, but after holding this brush in my hand, I think I get it! So pretty!

This brush is densely packed and rainbow bright! It’s perfect for applying powders like foundation, setting powder, etc.

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!)

(I would love to see them send out bags with just background print, no text!)

Verdict: This month’s So Susan Lip Love bag has a value of about $103! I think that value is fantastic for a $21 ingredient-conscious beauty subscription box. 

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!

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

  1. This black pencil is amazing. You can also use it as a shadow since it’s bigger and creamy, although the tip is pointed enough to give you a really nice line as well. But the staying power of this product is better than anything I have ever tried. I actually used it on my lid as a shadow, like a base, for one of the glitter shades from Too Faced Glitter Bomb and both the black and the glitter didn’t budge through about 18 hours of wear until I took them off. No glitter fallout, no smearing…nothing.

  2. Question- Do subscribers get discounts on previous bags, or are they still $45 dollars a piece?

  3. I so agree about the bags having just the print without the text. The phrases are always just ‘off’ somehow.

  4. A cool and not common feature of this bag is that if you have a subscription and then have to stop, you don’t have to cancel, you can just pause for a month, and you can do this for some months in a row. I had to due to financial reasons, so I’ve skipped two now. You just have to remember to do it by the deadline.

    I LOVE Trifle’s Sugar Scrubs, they are my very favorite lip scrubs. And I’m so about anything iridescent, so I hope I can swap for that lip topper!

    A good resource for brushes with unicorn / mermaid / colorful shiny vibes: wish.com which also has an app called Wish that sells all kinds of stuff. They are not high quality brushes, but they were inexpensive enough that (awhile ago when I had money I bougut a set of 12 for $20, which included shipping, and I keep them on my desk/vanity so I can see them all the time.. Most of their goods are from China or other Asian countries, but I usually receive them (on the West Coast of the US) in a few weeks, and a majority of the products I’ve bought are at least decent quality.

  5. I do not need another black liner, but I’m in love with the rest of the bag. Ill try to fit it in my budget 🙂

  6. Wow so pretty this is making me tempted to subscribe!

    • Liz, if you subscribe now will this be your first bag?

      • I second this question. Interested in subbing but only if I’d get this bag!

        • You you sign up now or this month, this will be your bag. Hope that helps

          • Thanks, Bella01! 🙂 Yes, if you sign up in September, this will be your first box!

  7. Would love to get my hands on that brush if anyone is offering it on the swap site!

    • Their selling the whole set for like 35.00. reg over 100.00
