December 2018 So Susan Color Curate Review
Each box comes with a card detailing the month’s products and prices.
Now, on to the items!
Limited-Edition Makeup Bag December 2018 – Retail Value $12.00
This coated makeup bag is lined and has a heavy duty zipper. I love anything with florals so the cheerful yellow tulips really speak to me.
Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics Luna Light in “Rose Halo”, 0.34 fl oz – Retail Value $19.00
The shimmer in this highlighter is very delicate and leans more of a purple than a rose. I found I most enjoyed this cream highlighter mixed in directly with my foundation, then applied with a brush for a super dewy glow. You can also use it alone to highlight any area of your face, or as an eyeshadow.
Trifle Cosmetics – Eye Candy in “Ganache”, 3 g – Retail Value $14.00
This is a winter shadow pairing if I have ever seen one! The colors are so pigmented and rich and they slide onto my eyelid as smooth as a cream, with minimal fallout. I also used a wet brush and they both work beautifully wet and create a very soft eyeliner. The brown is more metallic than the black, but both have lots of depth and shimmer.
So Susan Cosmetics – Color Trip in “Playful”, 2.3 g – Retail Value $18.00
I am not quite sure how I will use the pretty metallic reddish pink pigment, but I think I will pair it with a clear lipgloss for a metallic lip or even pat some on top of a gloss for that so trendy foiled holiday lip look. It could also likely be used carefully as a blush, but I am not about to test my skills in that way. Pigments can be a little loose and messy for someone with my skill set, but this color is too pretty not to experiment with!
Swatched above from top to bottom: Luna Light “Rose Halo”, Color Trip Pigment in “Playful”, Eye Candy Eyeshadows in “Ganache”
BONUS: Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics Morningstar Metallic Cream Highlighter Palette, 14 g – Retail Value $45.00
Wow! This bonus item is worth over double the cost of the whole month subscription! These colors are so pretty and unusual. It reminds me of the super hyped Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette, but in cream form and with deeper colors. They can also double as sheer eyeshadows. They are transparent but very reflective!
Top to bottom: Foiled, Manicured, Deserved, Raised
Verdict: This month’s So Susan Color Curate bag has a value of about $108. That is more than great for a $21 subscription! The Morningstar palette was by far the most exciting item straight out of the bag, but I think my favorite item this month would be the eyeshadows. If you like super unique makeup that is all natural and cruelty-free, you will absolutely adore this subscription.
