What's Inside The Bag

So Susan Limited-Edition Makeup Bag, May 2023 - Retail Value $12


May's bag is a fun floral print that is great for spring. I've been so happy with the recent bags from So Susan; I will usually use one for a few weeks and then pass it along since I also have Ipsy bags from 2012 still hanging around, but I've held on to every bag since the beginning of the year.

Jelly Pong Pong Tiger Lips Pigmented Lip Cream in Fearless - Retail Value $12.00

Formula alone, this product is right up my alley. I can't get enough of glossy lip looks, and the coral-orange color of this is so refreshing. This gloss has a taste and smell that really reminds me of the original Robitussin, the cough syrup. Oddly enough, that nostalgic smell is alluring me for some strange reason.

I am not a fan of the packaging for this one. When I have a lip product, I prefer to apply it directly to my lips. I don't want to squeeze product from a tube that is a combination of oily and glossy on to anything else, be it a finger or Qtip, and then apply it. Also, this product needs a good shake before dispensing. As seen above, when I first squeezed the tube I got a lot of orange oil out that was not mixed with the gorgeous pigment. The normal swatch is below!

So Susan Liquid Subtropical Eyeshadow Palette in Utopia - Retail Value $45.00


This has to be my all-time favorite palette from So Susan. I am so relieved that this is not a warm neutral palette! I love everything about it. Each shade is pigmented and applies just as it appears in the pan. The texture is perfectly buttery, not a chalky hue in the house!

I also love the sheen that each color imparts. Gorgeously colorful and fun, this palette will get a lot of use this spring.

Jelly Pong Pong Lustrelux Glow Primer - Retail Value $18.00


I can't be bothered to use primers for their intended purposes anymore, but one thing I love about a glowy primer, is they always look great mixed in with foundation. This creamy primer has a light texture that mixes in beautifully with my liquid foundation. It has a pink shimmery finish if used alone, but mixed in with my base, it presents a cool, youthful glow all over.

Trifle Cosmetics Cheek Chiffon - Retail Value $9.50


This duo is the perfect size product for travel. It is the go-to neutral pink and champagne combo that nobody can be mad at. I love how this blended out so naturally on my cheeks. Swatches and selfie below!

Oh hi! It's me, again. I am wearing each product from this month's bag. They were all winners this time around!


This month's So Susan Color Curate was fab! I am really loving the So Susan Cosmetics eyeshadow palette, as well as the Jelly Pong Pong lip gloss. The cheek products are also gorgeous, making this month's delivery pretty much perfect! This month's bag's retail value comes to $96.50; you're getting four products for $20.95, a really great deal.

I’m a self-proclaimed “cool mom” who loves a little, who am I kidding, a lot of razzle-dazzle. I have been box-obsessed for over 10 years, and I am always on the hunt for new beauty, fun flair and trendy clothing boxes. A fun night for me includes an exfoliating foot mask and a bag of Dot's Pretzels while binging Rupaul’s Drag Race.
