It’s been a few months since I last featured a So Susan Lip Love Bag review so I’m delighted to welcome them back to the blog but unfortunately it will be my last review for a while until I can find that work, blog, life balance! For July, So Susan have featured a good selection of products on the make-up front accompanied by a pretty pouch which has such a powerful slogan and everything’s been handpicked to perfection to compliment their tropical theme. If you’re looking for a cruelty-free subscription that’s make-up centric then this monthly subscription is the perfect destination which not only allows you to experiment with a host of products and shades in the comfort of your home it excitingly also includes new launches from brands such as So Susan, Jelly Pong Pong and Trifle Cosmetics.

The So Susan collection ranges from make-up to nail varnish combining their lovely portfolio of colours with science. Their philosophy is to create colours which last, are cruelty free and also much kinder to your skin. As well as the philosophy behind the brand, I love the feminine and pretty designed packaging which always stands out for me. I’ve tried quite a few products from their collection and already have quite a few firm favourites plus they house their products in such pretty packaging!

Here’s quick overview of what you can expect to see inside their July edition:

Up first we have the So Susan Cosmetics Concealer Brush (RRP £16.94) which is a very good sized concealer brush perfect for covering larger areas. This versatile and cruelty-free brush is made from synthetic nylon & taklon hairs only. I own quite a few brushes by So Susan and I’m really happy to welcome another to my stash as the quality of their brushes are so good and feel lovely on the skin too!

Nothing says summer than the smell of coconuts so the Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics Coffee + Coconut Lip Scrub (RRP £14.66) was such a fitting item for their tropical theme minus the coffee of course! This shea butter-based lip scrub helps to keep your lips smooth, free from dead skin, plumped & primed and is formulated with pure golden sugar, jojoba and rosehip oil. I do love sugar scrubs, they do a great job perfecting your lips prior to applying a matte lipstick plus some of them taste pretty good too!

Talking of matte lips, up next is the Trifle Cosmetics Cream Bar in ‘Cake Island’ (RRP £16.21), a scrumptiously smooth and tasty Agave infused matte lipstick which doesn’t leave your lips craving for moisture thanks to the addition of almond Oil. The shade Cake Island is a very summery fushia pink and it really packs a punch!

Lastly is the Nomad Cosmetics Cachorros Eyeshadow (£9.26), a mint green eyeshadow inspired by the classic American cars of decades past, ubiquitous in La Habana Vieja and it’s such a unique addition to my collection shade-wise. Described as smooth, rich and super pigmented, the eyeshadow is infused with Papaya Seed Oil to help nourish the skin and also helps to keep the colour looking fresh and vibrant. It’s also free of parabens, phthalates & mineral oil and is peta certified, cruelty-free and vegan. 

My Verdict

With beautiful pops of colour, this month’s Lip Love Bag really embraces the season and was perfectly curated to match their tropical theme – it’s a very vacation-ready line-up! Their July edit showcased a good selection on the make-up front with a pretty make-up pouch to match and as always every single item’s full sized so you’ll definitely be able to judge whether the products/shades work for you or not. I have a couple of favourites so far, the concealer brush is great quality and the matte lip lipstick is a true winner thanks to the moisturising and pigmented formula. 

If you favour make up over skin care then the So Susan Lip Love Bag is the perfect destination to get acquainted with a cruelty-free collection from brands such as So Susan, Jelly Pong Pong and Trifle Cosmetics plus with only full size products on board it’s such a guilt-free way to build up your make up stash without breaking the bank. One of the aspects I really love is that So Susan are always churning out new revolutionary products so you can always expect to discover something new as well as some of their classic and popular products too.

So Susan Lip Love Bag Review – March 2017

Price of the Bag is $20.95 (Approx £16.69)
No. of items in the Bag – 4
Total value of contents in the box £92.73

Since So Susan unveiled their spoiler for their March Lip Love Bag I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it and it’s finally arrived and it’s even better than I imagined –  just look at that all those pops of colour and that beautiful highlighter palette! If you’re looking for a cruelty-free subscription that’s make-up centric then this monthly subscription is the perfect destination which not only allows you to experiment with a host of products and shades in the comfort of your home it excitingly also includes new launches from brands such as So Susan, Jelly Pong Pong and Trifle Cosmetics. This month’s edition features a good selection of make-up focusing on the face, eyes and lips and as always you can expect to see your goodies inside a limited edition make up bag to match the theme. 

The So Susan collection ranges from make-up to nail varnish combining their lovely portfolio of colours with science. Their philosophy is to create colours which last, are cruelty free and also much kinder to your skin. As well as the philosophy behind the brand, I love the feminine and pretty designed packaging which always stands out for me. I’ve tried quite a few products from their collection and already have quite a few firm favourites.

1. So Susan Skinsider – Full Size RRP £33.68

The main showstopper inside this month’s bag and something that’s very quickly become a firm favourite is this versatile yet compact highlighting palette that contains a multitude of shades to suit all skin tones and occasions. Enriched with multi-toned pigment pearls that adjust to your skin’s natural undertones to give you a refined, luminescent finish the shades can be used as eye shadow or as highlighters. It’s also formulated with Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 that helps in reducing skin fatigue and facial lines. 

2. So Susan LipPout in Social Butterfly – Full Size RRP £15.20

As much as I absolutely adore these paper cased lipsticks I’ve not had much luck in the shade department but it’s safe to say that Social Butterfly is definitely my kind of shade, it’s a cool red toned hue and looks flattering even against my pale skin! Described as a lipstick and a gloss hybrid this boasts from being vegan and doesn’t contain any parabens, phthalates or mineral oil. 

3. Jelly Pong Pong Liptensity in ‘Curiosity’  – Full Size RRP £16.00

This pretty pink highly hydrating gloss boasts a thick formula to enable you to have an intense colour that shines and lasts at the same time. It’s also infused with Sweet Almond Oil to help reduce chapped skin and promises to keep the lips succulently soft. 

4. Trifle Cosmetics Cheek Parfait in ‘Marmalade’  – Full Size RRP £18.24

Last but not least is the Cheek Parfait in the shade Marmalade. As with all cream blushers a little goes a very long way and whilst I much prefer powder formulas this one does blend really well and leaves behind a rosy flush of colour. 

My Verdict

With spring now in full bloom the March Lip Love Bag embraces the season with a beautiful line up of make up treats to brighten up post winter complexions. I love what they’ve picked out this month and in terms of the shades everything is geared towards the sunny days ahead of us so it’s the perfect excuse for swapping out those dark hues! So far my favourites are the LipoPout Lipstick which seems to be a good match for my pale skin and the highlighting palette is just so versatile and is a great choice for those who prefer more of a natural/neutral look . If you favour make up over skin care then the So Susan Lip Love Bag is the perfect destination to get acquainted with a cruelty-free collection from brands such as So Susan, Jelly Pong Pong and Trifle Cosmetics plus with only full size products on board it’s such a guilt-free way to build up your make up stash without breaking the bank. 

The Lip Love Bag literally caters for every make-up addict regardless of whether you’re a pro or just want to experiment with different products and shades that may usually be outside of your comfort zone. One of the aspects I really love is that So Susan are always churning out new revolutionary products so you can always expect to discover something new as well as some of their classic and popular products too.
