So Susan Lip Love January beauty bag review

so susan lip love january beauty bag

So in keeping with a fresh new start for 2017 I decided to try out a new beauty box – So Susan.

So Susan is a makeup brand that prides itself on its 100% cruelty free products. The makeup is unique in that it combines wrinkle relief technology into your daily routine.

Every month So Susan releases a beauty bag which features four of their hit products. The makeup is presented in a unique makeup bag with a different quote to enjoy.

This months makeup bag says ‘Dream Big Dare Greatly‘. It has a funky orange wildlife design and is said to be worth around $12.

Inside the bag I found:

So Susan LipoPout in Parrots
This lipstick has the most funkiest packaging I’ve ever seen.The shade was a baby pink but I didn’t get a chance to try it as it fell out as soon as I opened the product!
Available for $18.95

Jelly Pong Pong Liptensity in Intensity
The Liptensity gloss comes in cute vintage packaging and has virtually no chemicals or additives that can cause irritation. Intensity is a gorgeous dark red shade that has a fair amount of pigmentation for a gloss. It is quite shiny but it does tend to smudge quickly.
Available for $19.95

Trifle Cosmetics Liquid Glow
Liquid Glow is a highlighter that is kind to skin with no parabens, phthalates, gluten or mineral oil. It’s also vegan and hypoallergenic so perfect for those who are allergic to a lot of makeup products. I was expecting the highlighter to be clear so I was surprised at how pink it was. The creamy formula is super pigmented and a little will go a long way.
Available for $19.95

Jelly Pong Pong Dream palette in Midnight Ride
This highly pigmented eyeshadow palette is super cute. It comes with four shimmery shades in light brown, mid brown, dark brown and grey. It also comes complete with a little mirror and double ended sponge makeup brush.
Available for $19.95

The beauty bag by So Susan is quite a unique find. The makeup is generally not available in your local Boots or Superdrug so it’s a little more unusual and I do love trying new ranges. I was a little disappointed how the lipstick broke so easily but I do love the eyeshadow palette and I can’t wait to try the highlighter properly. The monthly cost is $20.95 so it’s on the more expensive scale of beauty boxes/bags but I think the cost does include the postage.

What do you think of the bag? Would you give it a go?

You can subscribe to So Susan in three ways, monthly, 3 month pre pay or 6 month pre pay. Find out more here
