No. of items in the Bag – 4
Total value of contents in the box £78.80

I don’t know about you but I’m so not ready to say goodbye to summer and I can’t believe that in a few weeks time we’ll soon be welcoming Autumn! With this shift in season, the *September Lip Love edition is aptly themed ‘I love autumn’ and while I love the heat, the long, sunny days and eating ice cream to my hearts content nothing can beat snuggling up under a big blanket with a delicious cup of tea! This months line up contains some great make up to make that seasonal switch, all of which are contained within a limited edition designed canvas pouch and I love that it’s cat themed again (yay)!

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.  Mesmer-Eyes Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner by So Susan – Full Size RRP £17.95

When it comes to getting that coveted flick, I’ve tried my hand at quite a few different liners – felt tipped pens, gel pots, liquid liners you name it, I’ve probably given it a go!

This long-lasting waterproof liquid eyeliner promises to stay intact no matter what the weather throws at us. It has a fine tip that’s perfect for achieving a precise flick and the pigmented formula really makes the eyes pop. 

2.  Lip Butter in “Hot Air Balloons” by Jelly Pong Pong  – Full Size RRP £13.95 

I absolutely love these paper cased lipsticks from the Lip Love Bags and this month you can expect to see the Jelly Pong Pong Lip Butter in the shade “Hot Air Balloons.

This is a very true, flesh-toned nude that makes my lips almost invisible on my face! The formula itself is creamy and smooth but I just can’t pull off the shade (sad face)!

3.  Cheek Rethink Powder & Cream Blush Duo by So Susan – Full Size RRP £18.95

A game-changing, nutrient-packed dual blush made with Shea Butter to help maintain a fade-free flawless blush for up to 10 full hours. Glide the rich cream-to-powder side onto your cheeks for plumped-up, nourished colour. FolIow this by blending the soft, cashmere powder blush on top and onto cheekbones and temples for a truly modern, glow-from-within, harmonious complexion. I’ve not tried this duo yet but I’m intrigued about doubling up the two formulas!

4.  Sweet Strobe Creamy Stick Illuminator by Trifle Cosmetics – Full Size RRP £15.95

Described as a long-lasting, plant-based luminizer that reflect and refract light to give you a natural, lit-from-within radiance. Formulated with superfine pearlescent pigments and a proprietary blend of emollients and silicons, this creamy stick luminizer leaves your skin illuminated, soft to the touch and moisturized without looking greasy or oily.

My Verdict

So Susan have curated yet another great Lip Love Bag with lots of new and exciting discoveries majority of which include new launches from all the brands featured. It’s a mixed line up this month and with autumn around the corner they’ve handpicked an apt collective for their September edition alongside a pretty designed canvas pouch to match. The only dud is the lipstick shade and while I love the buttery formula the shade looks awful on my pale complexion but the remainder is definitely things that I love and will continue to use.  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. Overall I’ve really enjoyed the all the new finds this month and I hope I have more luck next month in terms of the lipstick shade!

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.

    I had no idea at all that So Susan did these little lip love bags! This sounds great. I love the idea of a strobe pencil.

    I hate their highlighting pencils, they are impossible to sharpen. They are way too soft and Just Break for me. Think i Will skip this month.
