Lip Love - October 2016


What is Lip Love?: Lip Love is a monthly subscription box by So Susan. Each month will include at least three full-sized products, one bonus makeup, and one bonus accessory. Each month you get a unique canvas bag as well.

How Much is Lip Love?: Lip Love is $20.95 (American) per month with international shipping available. I did have to pay a foreign transaction fee because they are located in the UK, so make sure you know that ahead of time. They have begun shipping from a US distribution center, but shipping time doesn't seem to have gotten any faster. The bags get cheaper if you do longer subscriptions, so that's always great.

Starting to see similarities in the bags each month? I did.


Such a cute bag! 


Info card.


So Susan Angled Blush Brush ($24.95) - This brush was in my makeup cup as my go-to for contour up until recently. It holds a good amount of product but it's very overpriced compared to my BH Brushes. Another problem of mine with this brush is how wide the handle is. It's so big that it takes up the space of two or three brushes and I don't like that. 



Jelly Pong Pong Liptensity (Curiosity) ($19.95) - A pretty light pink lip gloss, if you like bad formulas. Imagine the worst sticky lip gloss from the early 2000's and add a high price tag and that's what you get.


So Susan Cheek Jelly ($18.00) - Oh no. No, no, no, no. See all of that mess in the cap of the tube? That was also all over the outside of the tube, which ended up all over my hands. The shade is actually a bright pink and does blend out to be a decent blush if you work with it but it takes a lot to get it there. 


Trifle Cosmetics Creamsicle (Ganache) ($17.95) - I like the Creamsicle idea but this shade is so not pretty. It's a browned red that would be okay as a lip color but not okay as a blush. Stick with the other two shades, they are better.


Swatches.


The value on this bag is $92.80, way overpriced for the quality of the items. I have begun to realize that either they think way too much of themselves and their products or that people don't actually buy these products for the quality. Or their other products are amazing but those don't ever make it in the bag.

Let me know what you thought of this month's bag and if you were as let down as I was.
