Now, on to the items!
Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics – Coffee + Coconut Lip Scrub – Value $19.00
This lip scrub is equal parts coffee + coconut scented – I couldn’t be happier with the scent!
The scrub is sugar based, so it’s sweet but gentle on your lips, and there was plenty of oil to moisturize in addition to exfoliating. (Lip scrubs are one of those products I never buy, but it’s always a treat to get one in a subscription box!)
Trifle Cosmetics – Cream Bar in ‘Cake Island’ – Value $21
Another lovely scented product! (Almost all So Susan products I’ve sampled smell SO good!)
This is a matte-finish, highly-pigmented lip crayon. It goes on smooth, and it has decent staying power. (Swatched in lower photo.)
Nomad Cosmetics – Cachorros Eyeshadow Value $12
This eyeshadow has impressive pigment, and a nice shimmer finish, too.
This shade of green is definitely outside of my eyeshadow comfort zone, but it is also nice to get some new shades in subscription boxes. (I definitely have enough brown shades!) I did some googling, and I’m liking this look. I might try a subtle version of that!
Here it swatched beneath the lip crayon:
So Susan Cosmetics – Concealer Brush – Value $21.95
I have a few So Susan makeup brushes thanks to the subscription, and I’m impressed with the quality. This one is made with soft and dense synthetic bristles.
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!)
The saying on this bag isn’t for me though – I would have preferred just the background print, no text!
Verdict: This month’s So Susan Lip Love bag has a value of about $86! I think that value is fantastic for a $21 ingredient-conscious beauty subscription box. Both the lip and eyeshadow colors are a bit outside my comfort zone this month, but that’s part of the reason I love subscription boxes – forcing my hand to try new things/colors!
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!
