You are sent a preview of each month's bag and you can sit a month out if you don't like what you see. All products are full-sized and there will be about four or five products each month.

This month's bag is as cute as ever and features a quote from Henri Matisse. The theme is "I love flowers in Spring."
- Jelly Pong Pong Caribbean Sun bronzer duo
- 8-hour Cheek Stain
- Wonderlight Base + Illuminator
- Colour Hybrid Lip and Cheek colour
- Happy Daisies Flower Grips - Bonus
The Jelly Pong Pong Caribbean Sun duo is gorgeous and perfect for the Summer - it says bronzer duo but one of the shades is so peachy that it has to be a blush. This is a great choice for travelling. I have swatches of all products for you at the end of this post.
The 8-hour Cheek Stain is pink; I am a peach-blush person. I know someone who will love this. I wish I had received a peachy colour because this is the first blush I'm getting in this packaging and I love it.
The Wonderlight duo contains a luminiser/highlighter end and a "brightening base" end. The latter is a stick concealer which is yellow enough to look decent on my skintone. I'm hooked by So Susan's concealers and hope to see more in future beauty bags!
Colour Hybrid is a long-lasting, non-drying deep fuchsia lip colour. It dries creamy matte and Stays. On. Seriously. The pigmentation is 100% opaque. I *know* where this tube is going if my Mum sees this post. You need a brush to apply it from the tube, but fingers work just as well.
The formula is mousse-like, lightweight and glides on so smoothly that I want a dozen lip mousses. Wait till you see the swatch below!
The hair grips are fun and will go out to my niece as soon as I see her. She wanted to go out to a movie with me and ended up sobbing in the cinema because there was some shooting on screen. Poor thing. I hope she enjoys every second of her childhood.
