Now, on to the items!

Jelly Pong Pong – Stardrops in “Supernova” – Retail Value $34

This is a highly pigmented and shimmery liquid highlighter that blends out beautifully. (You could also mix a drop of this in with your liquid foundation if you want more of a glowy finish.)

They sent a similar liquid highlighter last month (a different color, though) and my only issue with this is the applicator. The formula is too thick for a dropper. This really should have been in a squeezable tube.

Jelly Pong Pong Dream Palette in “Nightingale” – Retail Value $20

I’m almost always impressed with the eyeshadow palettes from So Susan, and this one is another winner. It’s a gorgeous warm brown shimmer quad, with excellent pigment.

The colors were easy to blend, too. (Swatched in lower photo.)

So Susan Liquid Matte in “Chocolate Berry” – Retail Value $14

This shade is a bit too dark for me, but the formula is everything I want in a liquid lip: matte finish, non-drying, super pigmented, and stays put!

Here it is swatched beneath the highlighter and the eyeshadow quad:

Trifle Cosmetics Truffle Mascara – Retail Value $24

This is my first time trying a mascara from the So Susan makeup family, and I’m impressed! It delivers on all fronts: volume, length, and lash separation!

And each So Susan Lip Love comes with a new makeup bag:

Limited Edition Makeup Bag – Value $12

I’m digging the bright colors, but I would have loved to see them do a holiday/winter design this month!

The bag is made of a spill-proof vinyl material with a fabric lining.

Verdict: This month’s So Susan Lip Love bag has a value of about $104! I think that value is fantastic for a $21 ingredient-conscious makeup 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!

  1. I actually like the trend this year of subs not getting too too holiday. Last year, all the beauty subs had red lippies and holiday themed bags, but this year, they seem to be trying to be not quite so elfish. I love my fish bag! And of course, So Susan always has great products.

  2. I somehow lost the mascara and drops. I really wanted to try those drops lol

  3. Lovely eye shadows.

  4. I love everything. I agree about the highlighter drops, but still very pretty.

  5. The eyeshadows look amazing!
