Most of us now probably all have a bit of an obsession with Soap and Glory products, whether it’s the body washes and butters or the make-up it seems there is little this brand can do wrong. Strangely I am more of a fan of the brands make-up than their body and skin care, although the love is starting to spread as I use more of the products I picked up during Boots sales.
The Soap and Glory supercat eyeliner was the first product that I picked up from the brand and what a great introduction into the brand. I began by using the fatcat version which was great at the time when I wore thick panda like eyeliner, but over time I moved the thinner original version. Most of us have probably tried the liner (if not go now!) so you all know how awesome it is. I wouldn’t say it is the best eyeliner out there, but it comes in my top three which is still great. When the nib is small enough to draw on easily, it’s long lasting and the black is darkly pigmented then you’re onto a winning formula.
Keeping to the theme of eyes I have tried a few of the brands mascaras and I have to say I haven’t been blown away by them. There’s nothing glaringly wrong with them but I’ve tried so many that I know what a great mascara looks like on and the S&G ones I’ve tried just haven’t quite lived up which is a shame.
Moving on to one of my favourite products by the brand their Sexy Mother Pucker Matte lipstick in Supernude. It was the first nude lipstick that I tried and despite everything else I’ve tried only one has lived up to this. Supernude as the name suggests is a nude shade but not so nude that you can’t notice you’ve got it on. The lipstick has a matte finish but it is super hydrating and doesn’t leave you feeling dry like a lot of other brands matte versions.
The first time I saw Love at First Blush with all the segments of pinks and peaches I knew it had to be mine. The colours look a little scary in the compact but when you swirl your blusher brush over them it creates to perfect pink undertone which is great for either day wear or going out. I am one of those people who don’t tend to mix up their makeup between ‘day-to-day’ and ‘going out’ so despite the fact that this is a little shimmery I still wear it to work. The colour lasts really well and when it does fade it’s an overall fade rather than a patchy fade.
The Heck of a Blot primer has been on my to buy list for ages but I already had four different face primers I hadn’t finished. Eventually knowing it would take bloody ages to finish one I just bit the bullet and bought this. Once it is on my skin it’s hydrating, smoothes over my skins imperfections and holds my makeup for the whole day, but the getting it on was the bit I didn’t find quite as smooth. I don’t find that this primer blends very well, i.e. when I put a bit on my finger it doesn’t seem to go very far and spread out. A minor issue for an otherwise great product, something i’ll just need to get used to.
The Imperfection Eraser is a brand new product to my make up collection and one I have mixed feelings about. It’s essentially like a concealer stick but without the colour which can be blended away with the swipe of the stick. The shape and size of the stick is perfect, especially when you’re on the go and it’s lightweight when you swipe it on but sometimes I use it and I literally can not even tell if it’s on my face until I go to blend it with my finger, something you need to do even if you can’t obviously see it.
At Christmas I received a Soap & Glory set which I asked for and it included the Smoulder Kohl pencil eyeliner. Now I haven’t really used pencil eyeliners in years but I’ve actually used this quite a few times when I want to touch up my waterline, or just add some liner on my bottom lashes. This has a creamy consistency and glides on really easily with an intense black colour, but the great thing is that it can be hard to budge so it doesn’t smudge more than you’d like during the day.
Overall I have been super impressed with the Soap & Glory make-up and i’ll definitely be adding to my collection over the coming months.
