The latest subscription box to come from So Susan Cosmetics is the LipLove bag. This makeup focussed subscription replaces their Lacquer Love box, which ended last month, and centres on delivering lip and cheek based colour cosmetics each month with a few surprises thrown in.
February is the month of the Golden Globes, the Oscars and the BAFTAs so very aptly this bag is called The Red Carpet Collection and it aims to bring you all the glamour and glitz of the award season, and all the wonderful colours and makeup you see on the red carpet!
All the goodies are packed into a gorgeous, So-Susan branded “Eco-Chic” bag, which is lovely and spacious. Lets take a closer look at the contents;
Swatches: Cheek Jelly (Left), Lip Dome (Right)
Cheek Jelly (RRP £10) – Enriched with pomegranate, raspberry seed, cherry, cranberry and goji berry this sheer lip and cheek stain is highly nourishing and soothing. The gel texture applies smoothly leaving a flush of colour and can be built up as required. The Cheek Jelly is free from mineral oils, phthalates and parabens, as well as being cruelty-free.
Lip Dome in Melon (RRP £10) – This lightweight, lip plumping balm is formulated with hyaluronic acid to plump lips and prevent collagen breakdown. With goji berry and mangosteen it leaves a comfortable, nourishing colour on the lips.
Supermodel Stain by Jelly Pong Pong (RRP £18) – This quad is another multi-tasking product and can be used on cheeks as well as lips for a wash of colour. The ceramide complex and wild-rose wax ensures this long-lasting stain is moistursing and healing.
As a bonus all bags this month contain a lovely silver coloured anklet and a So Susan Concealer Quad (RRP £19), which is a customisable concealer palette enriched with marula oil. As I got the Concealer Quad recently with my Lacquer Love subscription i’ll probably give this to a friend.
The value of the bag is £57 (excluding the anklet) which is tremendous value considering the subscription costs just £14.95, and it’s a fabulous selection of cosmetics. Despite the teething issues with this month’s bag (overwhelming demand meant dispatch was delayed) i’m super excited for the March bag!
