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

Now, on to the items!

Jelly Pong Pong Hummingbird Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette in Ocean Dreams- Retail Value $35

This palette features some lovely mermaid-inspired colors! The wine color on the right is more of a satin finish, and the other 5 shades are shimmers. The pigment is good throughout, but it wasn’t as highly pigmented as most So Susan cosmetic products.

Trifle Cosmetics Glow Icing Highlighter Powder Duo – Retail Value $19

These are super shimmery highlighters that could also double as eyeshadows.

They are easy to blend and the pigment is great, too. (Swatched in lower photo.)

Trifle Cosmetics Bon Bon Bling in Black Forrest – Retail Value $15

This is shimmery loose glitter that can be used on your face, body, or hair. I recommend keeping it out of eye makeup because of the fallout and make sure to use a strong primer like glitter glue to keep it in place.

Here it is swatched beneath the palette and the highlighter duo:

So Susan Skin Spectre – Retail Value $26

This may be my new favorite primer – it goes on clear and gives skin SUCH a smooth finish!

And each So Susan Color Curate comes with a new makeup bag:

Limited Edition Makeup Bag – Value $12

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 $107! 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!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes! If you sign up in September, the September box will be your first box.

  1. I’m buying this! The shadow colors look nice in the compact, but on Liz’s arm, they are gorgeous!
    I’ve never seen many swatches look that much prettier when blended out.

    • I know everything looks good on Liz but really these colors are just gorgeous. Take a look at the tutorial. The shadows are purely stunning on and soft and blendable.

  2. I’ll be glad to swap for the palette if anyone is planing to list it. Please, let me know!

  3. You can subscribe directly through So Susan website and there’s a discount not available on Cratejoy.

    The website is selling the exact same subscription and will have the Sept. bag throughout the month. Click on the current bag shown and it will take you to the subscription form.

  4. The hummingbird-multi-finish-eyeshadow-palette in Ocean Breeze looks beautiful. I love all these products. I really like the smell and that their their stunning on. I can’t wait to try the new primer too. Happy, happy, happy 😍
