May’s So Susan LipLove bag has sailed into port. With the theme of “I Love Vacations” this bag is very summer-focused and features four products designed to give you a glowing, sunkissed complexion and as usual the gorgeous canvas makeup bag features a beautiful print and an inspirational quote to tie the theme together. So join me as a guide you through the contents of this stunning installment from So Susan Cosmetics monthly makeup subscription service.
First out of the bag is Jelly Pong Pong Play Paint in Damson (RRP £9), a highly pigmented cream infused with Pumpkin Seed oil and Rhubarb. Upon application, this velvety textured lip and cheek colour dries down to a matte, long-lasting finish. The pink colour has a definite hint of coral and would look fabulous with a tan.
Next up is the So Susan Light Diffuser in Cocoa Dust (RRP £14), an illuminator and bronzer duo. The first thing that hits you when you open this palette is a mouth-watering chocolate and coconut fragrance, which literally transports you to a tropical island! As usual with all So Susan products the formula is boosted with skin-friendly ingredients including Cocoa, Papaya and Kelp extract to help rejuvenate tired skin.
The soft powders are so easy to use seperately or together. Simply sweep a broad brush across the two powders to pick up the colour then blend onto your face for a sunkissed complexion without a hint of muddiness.
The third product is The Beauty Crop Lightning Crew (RRP £12), a cream highlighter that promises to brighten and lift lacklustre complexions. The addition of vitamin C infused Pineapple and antioxident Green Tea ensures this Highlighting Cream not only adds a beautiful luminosity to the skin but also keeps it healthy.
The shade of the highlighter is a very wearable and flattering golden bronze, which is easy to blend according to your preference. Just a small amount is all you need to give the skin a warm glow anywhere you desire.
The final product is a So Susan Creme Couture in Terracotta (RRP £13), a cream blush that features Wrinkle Relief Complex – a unique blend of two peptides (Argireline and Matrixyl) to restore and maintain the skins youthful radiance. The blush utilises both rich creamy pigment and luminescent powder to provide a seamless, soft-focus colour, that also lends a subtle sheen.
As a bonus item So Susan have thrown in a lovely accessory in the form of an Anchor Bracelet. This is such a simple, delicate and very pretty piece of jewellery and one I can definitely see me wearing. I love the fact it ties in with the nautical theme of the bag.
I’m really happy with this month’s offerings. The products are so beautiful, inside as well as on the outside, and they’re definitely suited to the summer months; oozing sunshine, warmth and a carefree spirit.
It’s lovely to see a subscription service that focuses solely on makeup, and the LipLove certainly does a great job, providing customers with a fantastic opportunity to shake up their existing makeup repertoire and explore new formulas and shades for just £14.95 per month. Even better is that So Susan formulas are bolstered with skin-loving botanical extracts, exclude nasties such as Parabens, mineral oils and phthalate, and are cruelty-free; ensuring healthy skin that doesn’t compromise on ethics.
