So Susan Lip Love- April 2017 Review

About the bag
Every month you will receive a bag filled with beauty items from the brand So Susan (typically 3-5 items). Sometimes these items will be So Susan's other brands, Jelly Pong Pong and Trifle Cosmetics. This bag is sent from the U.S.A. Everything So Susan and it's other brands sell is cruelty free!

$20.95 per month (approx £16.20) with free shipping worldwide. You can buy a one off bag for $45.00 (approx £34.79).

What I got

The bag this month was a lovely dark blue with green/blue feathers and the quote 'Be More Of Who You Are' which I really liked. I will definitely use this little pouch.

The first item out the bag was this absolutely gorgeous So Susan Liquid Matte Lipstick in 'Peach Nude' (full size, $14.00/approx £10.82). This is a peachy tending towards bronze (without shimmer) nude, which is smooth and creamy and dries down to a lovely, long wearing matte. So long wearing in fact that the swatch wouldn't come off with a regular wipe and was still there the next day- I had to attack it with proper makeup remover! This is my favourite item in the bag.

Next was the lovely So Suan Buffing Brush ($24.00/approx £18.56). This blue and gold brush has a properly premium feel to it- the handle is weighted, and the (cruelty free, of course) bristles are soft as bunny fur. This will be a great brush for buffing out contour and highlighter.

The third item is the Trifle Cosmetics Sugar Bunny ($18.00/approx £13.92). This is an exfoliating lip scrub, containing sugar to exfoliate, and vanilla and sweet almond oil to soften. It smells lovely and will be useful for my constantly chapped lips.

(L-R, 'High Beam', 'Rose Beam', 'Sweet Beam').
Finally was this Jelly Pong Pong Wonder Gleam Highlighting Palette ($38.00/approx £29.38). The product itself is infused with coffee bean and elderberry extracts, and each shade is quite shimmery, so you couldn't really use this palette to contour with alone. I love the rose shade best, but they're all beautiful. The picture of the swatches really doesn't do them justice.

Final thoughts
I loved everything in this bag, including the bag itself, and my favourites by far were the matte lipstick and the buffing brush. I look forward to next month of Lip Love. I don't mind that you have to wait a week for it to get here from the U.S, it's worth the wait!
