No. of items in the Bag – 4
Total value of contents in the box £73.80

I’m a little late to the party this month but I am so smitten with my *August So Susan Lip Love Bag! I’m a huge cat lover so not only was I delighted with the design of the bag this month but the line up also really shines with such a refreshing variety of make-up, a brush and an ever so delicious lip scrub! Sticking to the summery theme, I think this could quite possibly be my favourite edit so far this year – job well done So Susan! 

The So Susan collection ranges from make-up to nail varnish combining their lovely portfolio of colours with science. Their philosophy is to create colours which last, are cruelty free and also much kinder to your skin. As well as the philosophy behind the brand, I love the feminine and pretty designed packaging which always stands out for me. I’ve tried quite a few products from their collection and already have a few firm favourites.

Each month, the Lip Love bag will include 3 full sized items and one bonus product from either Jelly Pong Pong or So Susan.

1.   Lip Sorbet By Trifle Cosmetics  – Full Size RRP £14.95

As we soon say goodbye to our so called summer, the Lip Sorbet by Trifle Cosmetics is such a handy addition for the winter months to get your lips super smooth and contains shea butter to help hydrate your lips before your makeup routine or whenever your lips need a little rescuing. 

The scrub works really well and my lips feel in much better condition after using it but the only thing you have to be careful of is getting rid of all the sugar after you’ve applied it, otherwise you’ll be wandering about looking like you’ve been at a box of doughnuts! The grape scent is ever so delicious and is such a tease as I just want to lick it all off!

2.  Lip Butter in “Seashells” by Jelly Pong Pong  – Full Size RRP £12.95

This Lip Butter is a new launch to the Jelly Pong Pong collection so it was exciting to see one of the shades featured inside this month’s bag. Seashells is a pretty pink but unfortunately leans a little towards Barbie territory for me, however the formula is buttery and feels nourishing on the lips.

3.  Praline Palette by Trifle Cosmetics – Full Size RRP £17.95

Oh my! The design on this palette is quite possibly the prettiest I’ve ever come across and inside is just a loveable as you can expect to see a fun variety of multifunctional eye shadows that can be used wet or dry. The intense, vibrant shades range from a neutral bronze to wearable khaki and deep eggplant. Formulated with creamy, coated micronized pigments to reduce shadow fall-out, these unique powders are hot-pressed into their godets for a strong yet velvety smooth texture. Comes complete with a large mirror and double-ended sponge applicators.

4.   Fan Brush by So Susan – Full Size RRP £15.95

While my brush collection is somewhat out of control, this is my first experience with a fan brush so I was delighted to welcome this  cruelty-free version by So Susan to my collection, it’s a great multitasker that’s very quickly become a favourite of mine. 

I love the fan shape it’s unique and ensures that it picks the proper amount of product in order to apply it evenly on the face and works particularly well with setting powders to give you a flawless finish. The feel of the brush is very light, which helps to get rid of excess powder and can also be used for applying bronzer, highlighter and blusher for a sheer wash of colour. 

My Verdict

So Susan have hand picked a great selection this month with such a refreshing collection that covers a great area of make up and is definitely an edition that sits at the top of the list, it’s one of my favourite line ups this year. While the lipstick shade wasn’t to my taste, I absolutely love the reminder especially the fan brush and I can’t believe that I’ve lived without one for so long, it’s such a useful multitasker that’s already taken up residency within my brush pot ! As always the bag features all full sized products so it’s incredible value for money and great for those who want to discover more skin friendly and cruelty-free alternatives, all which are enclosed inside a very pretty designed canvas bag.  Overall I’ve really enjoyed the all the new finds this month and I can’t wait to see what September has in store. 

The Lip Love Bag literally caters for every make-up addict regardless of whether you’re a pro or just want to experiment with different products and shades that may usually be outside of your comfort zone. One of the aspects I really love is that So Susan are always churning out new revolutionary products so you can always expect to discover something new as well as some of their classic and popular products too.
