So Susan is a monthly subscription bag from the UK that delivers a designed canvas bag stuffed with goodies from So Susan and its related makeup lines (Jelly Pong Pong, Trifle, etc). I love these bags so much — the art is great and the quotes are always really uplifting and encouraging.
The info card always has the same design as on the bag; I wish they arrived in better condition so I could post them on my fridge, because I love the positive messages.
There was a printing issue this month! No worries, nothing important got cut off.
- Candied Apple by Trifle (worth $18.95 / £15.95)
This 2-in-1 lip and cheek stain is a gorgeous apple red with a shimmer to it — I tend to use these stains strictly on my lips, just because I find stains hard to work with on my cheeks.
- Primal Instinct by So Susan (worth $23.95 / £20.95)
This primer contains silicones, so it applies very smoothly and evenly. I didn’t think there was anything too remarkable about it compared to other primers, but I love that it’s vegan, gluten-free, and doesn’t contain mineral oil!
- Raspberry Ripple by Trifle (worth $17.95 / £14.95)
This blush palette is so tiny! Seriously, each shade is about the size of my thumb, and I have tiny hands. I definitely couldn’t see myself getting a blush brush into just one colour – at least not with my limited makeup skillz. The colour on the far right is formulated with resveratrol which apparently can aid with hyperpigmentation in the skin.
- BONUS ITEM : Blush&Contour by Jelly Pong Pong (worth $17.95 / £13.95)
I LOVE the apricot blush side of this! Contouring, not so much. (I might use it as an eyeshadow — yes, I’m a dweeb). Again, these compacts are super tiny, so it’s hard to actually use them.
June’s bag was a nice mix of products! The products definitely had a focus on face (with one dual product) which is great for summer.
