soap and glory do make up!

Not long ago my favourite 'drug store' brand Soap and Glory launched their first ever make up range and I've been sent a few pieces to try out. Usually famed for their bubble baths and skincare products creating a make up line was something completely new for the brand but the fact Soap and Glory are a fave brand for most of us the idea of inexpensive make up products by them is a guaranteed success. I'd compare the range as similar to Benefit but at much cheaper prices.

Trick and treatment dark circle corrector - £9.00

Having an olive toned complexion I get the most annoying dark under eye circles that I feel the need to cover up on a daily basis but equally I hate the feeling of having a thick concealer under my eyes. This concealer works well for me as it feels light on my skin and has a subtle shimmer pigment to reflect light from your under eye circles. It won't give your make up an airbrushed effect or barbie looking skin but is worth buying if you don't like heavy make up, just don't expect miracles. 

Solar powder multi shade bronzer - £11.00

If any of you have tried the '10' bronzer by Benefit this is basically the half price version. I'd probably describe it as more of a highlighter than bronzer as it isn't very pigmented but still creates a lovely glow on the skin. Definitely worth looking at to boost your complexion in this dull wintry weather.

Smoulder Kohl waterproof eyeliner - £5.00

Finally my favourite out of the bunch, I'm not a great fan of pencil liner usually as I find it smudges too easily and I end up resembling a panda, however I've been really impressed with this one. Because it's waterproof it literally doesn't budge all day but it initially applies really well as the pencil is so soft. It's by far the best pencil eyeliner I've ever tried and even comes with a sharpener built in the lid, and the fact it's so cheap is a massive bonus.

The Soap and Glory make up range is available in Boots stores or online (currently on 3 for 2).

  11. Great post, have been searching for a budge-proof inexpensive eyeliner for ages so thanks for the hint! Am making a beeline for Boots tomorrow!

  12. Hi Jess, a lovely review! I completely agree with you about Smoulder Kohl. I too love it - its a great pencil to use for a subtle smokey eye or if you dare a full on 'out on the town' eye look. I did a review on the S&G makeup range if you have a minute to go check it out:

    I also did a youtube makeup tutorial using these products for a great daytime look:

    Keep up the great work! I look forward to reading more of your reviews :)
