Each box comes with a card detailing the month’s products and prices.

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.

Swatched in lower photo.

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!

  1. Did anyone get the following email today? “Dear Rosemary, We are changing platforms of our Color Curate subscription program and would like to let you know that you are currently subscribed on the OLD platform. Your subscription will therefore expire after your full cycle is complete on 2nd of July. If you would like to keep your subscription active after the current block expires, please do the following :

    1) Re-subscribe on our NEW platform here.

    2) Your card will be charged immediately and we will carry forward your subscription months.

    3) Email us on [email protected] that you have subscribed so we can ensure there are no disruptions to the shipping out of your bags and your loyalty points will be migrated.

    If you need any help, just let me know.


    • I received the same mail! My subscription also ends on July 2, but does not seem to have to pay more subscriptions from now when they have not even sent the ones they already pay.
      By the way, they have not sent me yet the additional stock for subscribing for 6 months. Did they send it to you?

    • I received a similar email. I originally subbed through cratejoy. Mine reads like this:

      We are changing platforms of our Color Curate subscription program and would like to let you know that you are currently subscribed on the OLD platform. Prices on this platform will increase to $30 / month from May 2018 onwards. In order to keep your current monthly price of $20.95, please subscribe on our NEW platform here.

      • :O $30 / month is to much! 🙁

  2. Just tried to sign up but it says “Coupon is not active” 🙁

  3. I really love this box! I have been subscribed for two months and think the items are fun, they smell great, and are unique.

  4. Some odd products. Concealer palette and the stain are not my cup of tea. It’s nice when the reviewer wears the products as well.

  5. Caved. First time ordering from them although I have dozens of subs. Everything looked so usable for me this month!

  6. Is this Lip Love or Color Curate ?

    • Sorry they changed the name from Lip Love to Color Curate.

      • Thank you, I went to site to order and wanted to make sure I was on the right subscription page of CrateJoy.

  7. The bag illustration is beautiful. They could’ve copied ipsy and given out markers to color it!
