Trifle Cosmetics Angel Cake – Retail Value $42
If you saw the name of this palette and hoped it smelled as good as it sounds, I have good news for you! It has that classic fruity, sweet Trifle Cosmetics scent!
The palette includes 4 different colored highlighters:
The formula consistency is close to a lip palette – these highlighters are creamy and easy to blend. The colors look a bit intimidating in the pan, but they blend out well so that you just see the shimmer and a hint of the color. (I found all of them to be flattering with the exception of the green.)

So Susan Cashmere Matte in Chesnut – Retail Value $21
Another makeup item with a delicious scent! This one reminds me of chocolate cake! It’s a matte brown/red shade. I didn’t find it to be long-lasting, but the pigment is great if you are OK with reapplying throughout the day.

Jelly Pong Pong Eye Smolder in Good Intentions – Retail Value $24
This, however, has staying power! It’s a rosy metallic that has excellent shimmer, pigment, and it doesn’t budge!
Here it is swatched beneath the highlighter palette and the lip crayon:
(FYI – I didn’t blend out the highlighters so that you could see them in the picture, but they do blend out to make the colors almost invisible.)
Jelly Pong Pong Cupid’s Arrow Powder Brush – Retail Value $24
This is a big brush perfect for applying powder blush, bronzer, highlighter, etc. The multi-colored bristles are super soft and densely packed, 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 $123! I think that value is fantastic for a $21 ingredient-conscious makeup subscription box. Plus, I appreciate that they sent a palette that pushed me out of my makeup comfort zone!
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!
