Now, on to the items!
Usually, So Susan’s full-size palettes are on the small side compared to other makeup brands, but not this time!
The shades live up to the Intense name – the pigment and shimmer on these are fantastic.
Since this is a 100% shimmer palette, you’ll probably need to mix it with mattes from another palette. (Or be far more daring than I am when it comes to eye looks!)

So Susan Cosmetics Muse Highlighting Drops in Platinum – Retail Value $35
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.)
But, I don’t know why So Susan has sent a liquid highlighter for 3 months in a row now – we can only glow so much every day! 🙂
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.
Here it is swatched beneath the eye shadow palette:
That is one shimmery arm!
Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics Jelly Puff – Retail Value $8.99
This is pretty much identical to the MakeupDrop silicone applicator – and for less than half the price!
Typically, I use a beauty blender or a stippling brush to apply liquid foundation. This silicone applicator gets the same flawless application look of the beauty blender, but it has additional benefits:
- No foundation absorbing into it! With a Beauty Blender or brush, I’m always losing some foundation to the tool itself, but this silicone isn’t porous, so all makeup goes on your skin!
- Super easy cleanup! Just soap, water, and towel it off and it’s good to go! No waiting for beauty blenders/brushes to dry!
Trifle Cosmetics Sugar Bunny Heavenly Lip Scrub in Watermelon – Retail 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 watermellon gummies! The oils are very moisturizing, too.
And each So Susan Lip Love comes with a new makeup bag:
Limited Edition Makeup Bag – Value $12
As usual, I prefer the non-text side of the bag!
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 $108.95! 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!
