Now, on to the items!
So Susan Cosmetics – Covert Canvas – Retail Value $40
These concealers are creamy with great pigment and coverage. (I didn’t love these for under my eyes since I have lines there, but they worked great everywhere else.) It’s always good to have a range of concealers for my skin tone changes over the year, and this is great for contouring/highlighting, too.
Here are the concealers swatched:
Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics- Play Stain – Retail Value $13
I expected this stain to fall into the “a little goes a long way” category of stains, but this one actually isn’t intensely pigmented. It’s easy to blend, and because it goes on somewhat light, there’s no need to worry about over applying. I also like that it is a bit moisturizing, too.

Trifle Cosmetics – Honeycomb – Retail Value $45
Good news – while some So Susan palettes can be on the small side, this is a generously sized one!
The colors are gorgeous, too! Great pigment and a lovely microshimmer – and easy to blend!
Here are the shades swatched beneath the stain:
Jelly Puff – “Baby You Are Amazin – Retail Value $8.99
This works for covering large areas with foundation, or you can also use it to apply skincare products. I’m a big fan of these silicone applicators since they are easy to clean, and no product gets absorbed into a sponge or brush! (The only product I’ve tried with a silicone applicator that didn’t work well is a self-tanner.)
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! What a beautiful illustration!
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 $118.99! 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!
