This month I am hoping for some color since the sun has gone far, far away, and maybe a little sparkle to help me get into a festive mood for the holidays.

What's Inside The Bag
So Susan Limited-Edition Makeup Bag, January 2022 - Retail Value $12
Lovely! Look at all of the smiling, happy ladies. I love this month's design; it is a fantastic change of pace from the last few bags, and I can't get enough of the simple color palette.
So Susan Cosmetics Perennial Palette in Carnation - Retail Value $48.00
Here she is, the missing link, and my favorite of the three Perennial Lipstick palettes. They are like Pokemon, and this subscription helped me catch them all; my lips have been drenched in color ever since. This formula is creamy, pigmented and its fragrance reminds me of one of the first makeup products I used as a child. If you're not a lip palette person, this could be the one to convert you.
I love the color range of this palette; it is so bright and cheerful, something that I've longed for all winter.
So Susan Cosmetics Color Trip Hi-Intensity Pigment in Earthly - Retail Value $21.00
When I looked this product up online, the picture of this color appears to be a yellow-orange shade. I opened the jar and was pleasantly surprised to see a very fine copper glitter. This gorgeous pigment is an awesome topper for a stand-out metallic eye look. I dabbed a very small amount of glitter glue on my lids over a copper eyeshadow, and Earthly took my look to 100. I love sparkle, so this is an excellent find for me.
Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics Hydrating Lip Gloss in Curiosity - Retail Value $19.95
When it comes to lip glosses, Jelly Pong Pong has completely knocked this formula out of the park. It is phenomenally hydrating, shiny, and not sticky in any way. Don't get me started on the pigmentation (swatches of all products below!). I also enjoy its fruity taste and easy application. Wow. I am a lipgloss girl, and I am shook!
Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics Bronzer Duo in Bahamas - Retail Value $24.95
Small compacts that multitask are so amazing for travel. Each color in this duo is made for my pale skin tone, so if you have medium or darker skin, unfortunately, the bronzer is not going to work for you. This palette is $24.95 which is pricey for its size, but you're basically getting it on super sale in this subscription. I mixed the two colors and applied to my cheeks for a rosy glow. The powders are pigmented but you can definitely go ham on both colors and not overdo it.
Swatches above: Trifle Cosmetics Bronzer Duo, So Susan Color Pigment, Jelly Pong Pong Lip Gloss,
Eyes, lips, and cheeks are all sporting my new goods! My lips just have the Jelly Pong Pong gloss on! Isn't that color a stunner?
This month's So Susan Color Curate was fantastic! What a perfect array to doll yourself up for a Valentine's Day date. I love all of the pink lips featured this month, and between the lipstick palette and lipgloss, I am going to be so vibrant this season. I am also very happy with the eye and cheek products this month, but I am just wowed by my new lippies. This month's picks add up to a value of $125.90, which is phenomenal for a $20.95 price tag.
