So Susan Lip Love December 2015


So Susan Lip Love is a monthly makeup subscription bag that is about $21 and ships from England.  I think it is one of the funner makeup sub bags out there as the makeup is so cutely packaged and the makeup bags included are adorable. I also like this makeup line because they are cruelty free, paraben free, and more natural than other makeup lines.

There is a card in each month's bag with the quote on one side and the contents of the bag on the other.   I love the quote this month. 

"Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are.  When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you."  Lao Tzu

Every month, the sub includes a cloth makeup bag.  They are themed for the month and have the quote on them as well.  I loved the colors in this month's bag and the snowflakes.

Trifle Cosmetics Lip Parfait (Raccoon) - ($18.95) This is a sister company to So Susan. What a cute package!  The color is a bright pink.  I do not know many people who live in England, but they must like bright shades of lipstick.  Every tube of lipstick I have received is a shade I would never wear.  BRIGHT!

So Susan Dual Brow Powder - ($17.95) I passed this on to a friend as I really do not use anything on my eyebrows.  It is a nice quality brow liner. 

Jelly Pong Pong Lychee Gel - ($15.95) This is shower gel - it is not a very big tube. I do not think I would ever pay that much for it.

So Susan Luminous High-Coverage Foundation ($24.95)  This shade is maybe a tad to dark for my skin tone but I will try it out. It does contain sunblock, which I love in a foundation.

This was not my favorite month for Lip Love, but it was not a total dud.  I do miss getting an accessory in every bag and the price went up - with less in the bag - so that is not something a consumer likes to see. I ended up cancelling this sub, due to a problem with changing the billing information.  I was grandfathered in at the old sub price but since I had to change billing information, they would not let me keep that old price.  I might pick this back up in a few months, but for now I have a overabundance of So Susan cosmetics.
