Lip Butter by Jelly Pong Pong (0.12 oz.) – $18.95
First of all I have to say these lip butters have hands down the cutest packaging ever. This formula is very creamy and moisturizing. The color I received is called Hot Air Balloons. Unfortunately it’s way too pale for my skin. It reminds me of 60’s frosted lips though the formula isn’t frosted at all. Weird.
Sweet Strobe by Trifle (0.11 oz.) – $19.95
I like this illuminator stick from Trifle. I’ve received a lot of illuminators from my Lip Love pouches and I am happy with their formulas and colors. This one is very white and will be nice for my inner eye.
Cheek Rethink by So Susan (0.11 oz.) – $22.95
I love getting blushes in subscription boxes because blush is something I actually wear every day. Unfortunately though, these colors just didn’t work for my coloring. The red cream blush was too dark and the powder pink blush didn’t carry much pigment just a lot of iridescent sheen which I didn’t find flattering. In the photo I am wearing the pink shimmering blush so you can see the iridescence.
Mesmer-Eyes by So Susan (0.10 oz.) – $22
This waterproof eyeliner in black has a fine point for precision application. I can attest to its staying power! I had to scrub with soap and water to get it off my arm from the swatch I did below. I rarely wear eyeliner, but this is a nice staple to have in the arsenal.
From top to bottom the swatches are: illuminator, lipstick, powder blush, cream blush, and eyeliner.
I’m not really happy with these colors on me or this photo, but here goes! I’m wearing the hot air balloons lipstick here. On the left cheek you can see the shimmery pink blush. On the right cheek I am wearing the red cream blush. I’m wearing my own mascara.
Verdict: This Lip Love pouch was not a big hit for me. Neither the blush nor lipstick work for my skin coloring. I will certainly use the illuminator and the eyeliner is a nice basic to have for occasions when I wear eye makeup other than just mascara. I adore the pouch this month. I’ve always loved the Albert Camus quote: “Autumn is a second spring, when every leaf is a flower.” The value this month is fabulous at over $83 and I hope these colors worked well for the other subscribers with darker skin tones!
