Card Front

Card Back

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

malibu melt

Malibu Melt by Jelly Pong Pong (.14 oz.) – $24.95

This very hydrating cream blush is made with shea butter and it smells amazing. I like the peachy color and how easily it blends on my cheeks. This is my favorite item in the pouch.

eye shadow

Muse Palette by So Susan  (.11 oz.) – $17.95

This palette is listed as $21.54 on the So Susan website, but I will go with the value listed on the information card. The palette is plastic, tiny and very difficult to open. This doesn’t feel like a high end full-size eye shadow to me. I prefer cooler color shadows with my skin tone so this will be passed on to a friend.


Lip Parfait in “Exotic Fruits” by Trifle (.1 oz.) – $18.95

This lipstick feels very moisturizing from the cocoa butter and the peachy nude color is pretty. I’m not a lipstick girl, I only wear glosses, but I have to say this cardboard tube is about the cutest lipstick packaging I’ve ever seen!


Illuminata by So Susan (.18 oz.) – $17.95

This is an illuminating loose powder. I love illuminators but this one is so light I don’t really see it on my skin, maybe because I’m so fair. I like that it’s made without phthalates and mineral oil. Again the price on the website is different from the card. On the website it is selling for $21.54.


The Lip Parfait, Malibu Melt and Muse Palette are all shown above. I tried swatching the illuminata, but it wouldn’t even show up.

Verdict:  ​I enjoyed this Lip Love pouch. The retail value of the items (including the pouch) in this month’s Lip Love totals approximately $91 which is a great value! The bag is adorable but I don’t see myself using this month’s products other than the Malibu Melt. While not every item is personally for me I liked the variety of items sent. 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.

  1. This is my first bag from this subscription. I love the eyeshadows and the lipstick, and the bag is really cute. The blush stick smells amazing but isn’t my type of product, and the illuminator is kind of meh to me. I’m looking forward to seeing what next month will bring!

  2. The bags are really cute. I just wish they’d include something other than illumintors and blushes/lip colors other than peach.

  3. I absolutely love the bag; the cats sitting in the swing are too darling for words!

    • I haven’t subscribed to this bag because i dont really need another subscription. but EVERY bag i’ve seen on the reviews has been super cute!

      • I used to LOVE the bag itself. But about 5 months ago they got cheader. I really liked the heavy chunky zippers they used to have. Not so nice anymore. I cancelled after a year because it gets so repetitive. But I do love the foundation we got a few months ago.

      • I know! I’m really tempted to sub to them because the packaging is so cute and they get good reviews but all the colors just seem to be too “neutral” for my taste.
