Soap & Glory is a brand I usually only buy at Christmas time, as I just love their gift sets that are filled with body butters and creams that smell totally divine. I haven’t really tried too much of their makeup but am always intrigued by it because the packaging is just so cute and the names are so quirky.
On my last trip to boots I decided to right this wrong and familiarise myself with some of their makeup products in order to make an informed decision on whether it is a brand I should look to for my makeup needs in the future.
Here are the three items I picked up and my initial thoughts on each:
I picked this one up because I am on the hunt for that prefect primer that will make my base look flawless and I’m hoping this one will fit the bill. They say it absorbs oil and controls shine all day, so pores look smaller and your skin smooth and it’s suitable for all skin types. It has PORE-SHRINK™ Technology which is supposed to instantly diminish the appearance of pores and SHINE-BLOC™ 12HR Matte Spheres for all-day-shine control, very techy but if it ensures the only shine is coming from the tops of my cheekbones and my base looks flawless then it will be a forever product for me. Let’s hope it lives up to its amazing promises.
This looks like the most perfect kit for concealing and highlighting the under eye area and is the product I am most excited to try. It includes two concealer shades and a highlighting powder for setting. It comes in two shades, light and medium, I chose light because I like to have my under eye area super bright to hide those pesky dark circles. It is such a cute little kit and one I can’t wait to put to the test, let’s hope it really does kick ass! Again this product is also jam packed with technology with PUFFEASE-8™ technology and INSTA-FIX™ polymer technology included – if you don’t mind (I’m not exactly sure what that means either but it certainly sounds pretty impressive)!
What a fantastic name, one of the things that makes this a real stand out brand is it use of quirky names and this gloss probably has the best name of them all. We all know that big lips are massive right now, what with Miss Kylie giving everyone serious lip envy, so I am keen to trial this product to see if it does what it says and plumps up my pout. This gloss has SUPERFILL™ Lip Plumping Spheres – that swell up to TEN TIMES when you apply them – and LIPSWELL™ Volume Boost Technology, so it certainly sounds like its got the goods to give King Kylie’s pout a run for its money.
I am quickly becoming a big Soap & Glory fan, if you are one already which of their products should I try next?
