Hello Glamazons!

Today we will be reviewing the So Susan Lip Love Beauty Subscription bag for March,2017. Lip Love is a beauty subscription service which ships worldwide.

The Lip Love bag  comes at a subscription fee of $20.95 (USD) per month.This price includes the cost of shipping.

For the price of $21/- (almost) only you get 4-5 whimsically packaged products in a very pretty and whimsical makeup bag. Lip Love is a beauty subscription bag managed by So Susan Cosmetics so they decides on your products for the month.

No need to fill a preference questionnaire. Typically the products you receive are : eye shadows, mascaras, lip gloss or a lipstick etc.

This month Lip Love celebrated Goddesses! Not the religious ones though.

I read somewhere that empowered women, empower women. And I truly believe this.

And this is regardless of the setting whether in the workplace or the home front. An empowered housewife will empower her daughter of her daughter – in – law.

An empowered woman boss will empower her subordinate. When I look into my personal life I truly see this.

On the one hand I see my mother in law. She got married to my father – in – law at the tender age of 16.

How much do you really know about life at 16? Your husband then becomes your whole life and education takes a back seat.

But look at the repercussions in her life. All her life she has had to be dependent on her husband for everything.

Financially, emotionally every way. What would happen if he left her?

She has a son but the son too has his own life, so after the husband the son becomes the whole focus? Then what happens to the son’s life?

She has not been empowered a single day in her life. Hence she doesn’t empower me!

Not that I need her permission or her validation to be empowered! Coming from a different family, with a much higher level of education and a successful career I don’t succumb to her non empowerment.

And that’s the problem  in our relationship.The fact that I don’t succumb.

Some people might call it a generational gap! On the other hand I have my boss.

Also a woman. Shes empowered and doesn’t hold back on empowering me.

I owe a lot of my career success to her. Was it not for her, I would not get many opportunities or visibility.

This blog seems to have gone off on another tangent 😉 Coming back to this month’s Lip Love Bag.

Lip Love was doing make up bags in canvas with whimsical (almost juvenile!) prints though philosophical quotes. This time they seemed to be targeting a more mature audience.

From January I notice that they’ve changed the concept of the bag a bit.They still do the philosophical quote or statement, what with ‘Dream Big, Dare Greatly’ last month and ‘I Only Roll With Goddesses’  this month but they have changed up the print and the material of the bag.

There’s a motif on the bag much like last month.This time faces of women in pink against a white background.

The material is a kind of thick-ish faux leather as compared to the canvas though frankly that was quite interesting! Across the print are the words ‘I Only Roll With Goddesses.’

Have a look at the bag below:

Now lets have a look at the products I received:

  1. Skinsider | Highlighter Pallete |So Susan | $42.00

I’m not one for highlighters but I was still very excited to receive this product!I love the packaging of it.

Its so sleek and black and slim. I also love the colors, I feel the pans are too small too dip in for highlighting and I wonder if they can be doubled up as eye shadows.

It comes with a good sized built in mirror and has its own sponge applicator. Nine beautiful, shimmery shades with awesome pigmentation.

2. Liptensity Hydrating Lip Gloss| Jelly Pong Pong | In the shade ‘Curiousity’ | $14.00

I don’t like these lip glosses at all. First off, they have a wierd detergent like smell.

Then the formula is patchy and does not apply evenly. It’s well pigmented and has good shine.

But that not enough for me.

3. Lip Pout | In the shade ‘Social Butterfly’ | So Susan | $19.00

These lipsticks are quite interesting for me. First of all the casing is made out of paper.

And then they have a whimsical print! The name of the shade also doesn’t give away the color.

4.Cheek Parfait | In the shade ‘Marmalade’ | Trifle Cosmetics | $23.00

This product has good pigmentation and I love the color as well. I think the color should work for all skin tones.

Again the problem that I have with it is the packaging. Why is it so juvenile?!

If I was to purchase this product from a store I would not purchase it due to the packaging alone! The outer part is still okay but the eye shadow pack itself is like toy/dolls makeup.

Is this product targeted at tweens? If Trifle Cosmetics ever reads this, then please know this is the only angst I have with your products.

Or let me know if I am not the target audience. Anyway, the total value of this bag totals to $116/- only.

And that’s my review. I hope you enjoyed reading this.

Today I have reached the magic number of 22 followers. Thank you if you helped me reach this number.

Help me reach my new target of 25 followers please. Like,comment,share and subscribe to this blog.

Thank you for your time and remember to be kind to yourself ‘coz there’s no one like you.

Much Love!

International beauty subscription bag

Lip Monthly | July,2016

 

Hello Hello!

I discovered an international subscription service which ships worldwide. Its called the Lip Monthly and is a God send for all those who love lip products.

For the price of $13/- only (Roughly Rs.871/- only ) you get a total of 4 products in an adorable bag. 3 of the 4 products are lip related and one is non lip related.

It comes in a beautiful gold, bubble wrap lined envelope and is delivered through DHL who hands it over to the local post office for delivery.

I was afraid that my package would be lost in transition however, fortunately it got delivered. Typically it ships out by the 10th of every month, you receive a tracking number with the shipment details, however it only shows entry into India through Mumbai, on the DHL website.

After that no tracking information is available so I was a little anxious about the delivery, however, it got delivered so I am happy.

Have a look at the very cute bag.

Of course the Information Card:

  2. DLS Lipstick| $10/Rs.670/-| 3.8 gms
  3. So Susan Jello Shot| $24.95/Rs. 1,672/-| 4.5 ml
  4. Jorel Parker Face Mask| $10/Rs.670/-| 30 ml

Total calculated value:

In INR: Rs.4,620/- only

Considering you pay only Rs.871/- for a monthly subscription (shipping is free world wide) you get 4 products worth Rs. 4,620/- only. The bag literally pays for itself 5 times over!!

Usually they send a different designed bag every month, however I noticed, that this month the have simply renamed their May,2016 bag as July,2016  and sent it out to not only to their first time subscribers but also to some regular subscribers. I was reading a few reviews and some subscribers are pretty upset with them.

Nonetheless, since this was my first time subscription I was quite fine with receiving this bag, having never received one before. Lets look at each of these products now:

Mana Kadar: Liplocked Priming Gloss Stain | Shade name ‘Lucky’

Of the lot this was the most classy, quite like a higher end luxury brand. It comes in a perfectly rectangular , solid glass bottle with black cap.

Introducing | Manna Kadar Liplocked Priming Gloss Stain in ‘Lucky’

Its got a sponge tip applicator which I’ve always preferred over the brush ones. The shade is a kind of a muddy pink and will go well over my skin tone.

DLS LipstickShade name ‘Vengeance’

Check out the very adorable packaging

 

 

I am a sucker for polka dots and the color black!The packaging combines both !!

DLS expands to Dirty Little Secret ! Quite a cheeky name for a lipper 🙂

The lipstick tube seems to be of good quality, its a matte black with ‘DLS‘ printed on the cap. When you open the tube, it has ‘Dirty Little Secret’ written at the base.

IMG_0037
So cute and different

The color is a fuchsia, magenta-ish kind of a shade.

So Susan Jello ShotShade name ‘Hangover’

Check out the fun, tropical – themed package design

 

The packaging has a lot of information on it. This is a double performing product it not only goes over your lips but will also double up as a cheek stain.

The box claims that the product is 78% water based and 99% natural. The box also describes the product as “A gel stain hybrid formula infused with Heat Shift (TM) technology that instantly transforms into a healthy, rosy flush upon contact onto your skin, according to your body temperature.”

Lets see how the swatches work out. By the way this product is cruelty free and vegan.

Swatch | So Susan Jello Shot in ‘Hangover’

When So Susan decided that this product should be a stain they weren’t joking! After I took this photograph, while I was easily able to wipe off all swatches from my finger tips, this one just wouldn’t wipe off! It also has a ‘pineapply’ fragrance to it.

Jorel Parker Face Mask :

This is the non lip product in the bag. As the name suggests its a face mask and claims to be vegan and cruelty free.

 

IMG_0030.JPG
This mask can be applied to face and body 

 

This mask seems to be well suited for my skin type. I have a feeling that its a clay based  mask.

I quite enjoy face masks and own quite a few of them. This one is infused with Sweet Almond and Avocado Oil, Green Tea Antioxidants and Volcanic Ash Minerals.

So that my review. I hope you enjoyed reading this.

Thank you for your time and remember to be kind to yourself ‘coz there’s no one like you.

Much Love!
