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!

Hello Glamazons!

Today we will be reviewing the So Susan Lip Love Beauty Subscription bag for January,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.That works out to roughly Rs. 1,421/- only 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 canvas 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 dreamers.

Here I am reminded of a quote by T.E Lawrence. It goes “All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.”

The theme of this months Lip Love bag is very related. It says Dream Big Dare Greatly which basically means that t dont limit your dreams or your imaginations.

And once you have dream it, chase the dream and make it a reality. Dare to dream care to achieve!

Even if people laugh at your dream let the, don’t deter from your path. Once the dream is achieved, you just might be the person having the last laugh!

Back to the bag now. This month Lip Love changed up their bags.

They usually do canvas bags with whimsical prints however this time, it was a plasticy, rexine material and also gone was the whimisical prints and quotes. This time they seemed to be targeting a more mature audience.

The bag itself is a lovely orange with prints f a tiger, cheetah and a zebra in white. Across all of this are oriented the words Dream Big Dare Greatly.

Have a look at the bag below.

Now lets have a loom at  products I received:

  1. Lip Pout | In the shade ‘Parrots” | Sp Susan | $18.95 | This is a pretty pink lipstick with a buttery consistency. This is So Susan’s own product and like the Lip Butters by Jelly Pong Pong, this range of lipstick also come in cases made of paper.

They also have a colorful, whimsical print and names that dont give out the shade. With a name like parrots the use is left guessing what the color could possibly be.

Green?! Have a look at the lipstick below:

2. Liptensity | In the shade ‘Intensity’| Jelly Pong Pong | $19.95 | This is a bold lip gloss that packs a good amount of shine and a lot of pigment! This formula is very creamy and moisturizing.

The shade is a gorgeous bright pink. and has a floral fragrance. Below is a pic of the lip gloss.

3. Liquid Glow | Trifle Cosmetics | $19.95 | This product is actually of no use to me nonetheless, according to Trifle cosmetics just a touch of this of this liquid luminizer is enough to give your complexion a boom of rosy brilliance.

It contains cocoa extract to hydrate the skin and make it softer. You are supposed to use your ring finger dot onto you cheekbones, brow bones and cupids bow for a boost of ethereal glow.

Have a look at the cute, whimsical packaging below.

4.Dream Pallette | In the shade ‘Midnight Ride’ | Jelly Pong Pong | $19.95 | This product is an antioxidant-rich eye shadow palette with a luxurious airy texture.

It not only moisturizes and melts onto the skin, but also makes your shadows last longer. This little eyeshadow palette is stunning!

Have a look at the pic below:

I love eyeshadow so easily this is the most favorite product out of the bag. However, I received mine broken and there’s powder all over!

I would have exchanged it but I think its expensive to send back so I’ll keep it. However, it will be nice to know how responsive Lip Love is so maybe I will write and report this.

The total value of this bag totals to $90.80/- only. I love the tag line of So Susan as a brand its:

Skincare.Colour.Performance

And that’s 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. Please like,comment,share and subscribe to this blog.

Help me get my followers to the magic number of 13!

Hello Glamazons!

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 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.

Recently Lip Monthly has started allowing customizations. They send their subscribers an email to inform them that customization is open.

You simply log into your account access the customization link and choose the shade you want. I chose the Hola Neon and Manna Kadar shade.

Lip Monthly packages ship 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.

It takes a month for the bag to reach India. The bag itself arrives in a wonderful gold bubble wrap lined envelope, which not only gives the goodies protection but also looks pretty.

Have a look at the envelope:

Have a look at the very cute bag.

Have a look at the card :

Considering you pay only Rs.870/- for a monthly subscription (shipping is free world wide) you get 4 products worth Rs. 4,619/- only. The bag literally pays for itself 5 times over!!

Along with the bag I also received a $30 coupon for Blue Apron. I am yet to explore if they deliver to India.

Along with this I got a 30% off discount voucher from Hola Neon.  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!
