Soap and Glory Make-up

Soap and Glory have been everywhere for years, you can miss their pretty pink packaging and each Christmas their sets are a fail-safe gift for friends, nieces, cousins and Secret Santas. Personally, when it comes to their bodycare, they are not my favourite but I think their make-up range is where Soap and Glory excel. I’ve tried a couple of bits from their make-up range and I’m really impressed. I love their lipsticks and I’ve repurchased the Brow Archery tint and pencil several times now. They are a massively underrated brand in the cosmetics isle. They do fantastic free gifts too. 


I treated myself to the The Beauty-Full House set which meant I got to try a couple of new products as well as stock up on a couple of favourites. 

The set has 6 products inside which would normally be £58 if bought separately so sets like this are a great way to try things out without spending loads. 

So first, a product I’ve used many times before and I would go as far as saying it’s my favourite liquid liner- the Supercat Liquid Ink Eyeliner Pen. I find it so easy to work with and it really stays put all day. The pen-like tip means I can be precise and it doesn’t leave me with an overly thick line.  

Next is a brow product, which I always love trying out. Whilst I’m no stranger to the Soap and Glory Archery range, I’d not given this one a go before.  I find the Archery Brow sculpting Crayon and setting gel  really easy to use. The slanted nib makes applying it a breeze in the mornings. It's perfectly shaped to sweep along the brows then turned sideways you can add natural upward strokes before setting it with the gel. If your brows are better than mine you can even just use the gel alone to set them in place for a natural look. I will definitely repurchase this one. 


Back in the day I used to wear the Sexy Mother Pucker lip glosses  all the time. I was often given these when people couldn’t handle the tingle it produced so I had a decent stash. These glosses claim to plump the lips while the formula makes your lips tingle - I guess it’s making the blood flow or something, I don’t know the exact science behind it. Some find it too much (hence the stash) but I really like it and the gloss itself isn’t sticky either. The shade in this set is an easy to wear nude called ‘Bare Enough’ and I love it.

One of my day to day blush/highlighters is Glow all Out by Soap and Glory as it offers a subtle glow and makes me look more awake. So I was pleased to see I could try Love At First Blush Rosy-Radiance Shimmer Powder  and see how it compares. This has a little more bronze to it so will be absolutely perfect in the summer but I’ve been wearing it this week and although it’s subtle I think it really helps freshen up a rather dull and tired face.


I’m still on the hunt for my perfect primer - nothing is wowed me yet. So One Heck Of A Blot Instant-perfecting Power Primer  was a welcome addition. It seems to do the job, my make-up stays put, it doesn’t go patchy or slide off. There’s nothing ground breaking, I don’t seem to have blurred skin or anything like that but it definitely helps keep shine away. 


The only slightly disappointing product is the Thick and Fast High Definition Mascara (£10.50). Now I am pretty picky when it comes to mascaras so I didn’t have high hopes for one that I hadn’t really heard of. It’s not bad, it's just ok. It took a couple of coats to get any real effect so was definitely more of a day to day/school run thing. It didn’t flake or smudge but I wouldn’t say it made my lashes look much thicker. 

If your local Boots store has loads of sale items left then I recommend you pick one of these up but otherwise Soap and Glory is on 3 for 2 at the moment. There are bargains to be had!
