Soap & Glory Cosmetics

I've been a huge fan of everything Soap & Glory since the brand first launched a few years back. I think I've probably tried pretty much 80% of the products in their bath and body and skincare ranges, all of which I have loved and many repurchased. I've posted about my favourite Soap & Glory products a few times, so you'll understand it's a brand I really love!

Therefore when I heard Soap & Glory were starting a cosmetics range I nearly jumped for joy. I know in the past they had flirted with the idea, with products such as their 'Sexy Mother Pucker' lip gloss, so to hear they were to finally launch a full range of cosmetics certainly had me looking forward to my next trip to Boots!

When I visited the Soap & Glory powder-pink beauty stand, it was clear that I'm not the only one jumping for joy over their new cosmetics range. My local Boots had sold out of a fair few of their products - all the mascaras had gone (something which I really want to try!) and their were only a few felt-tip eye liners and creamy concealers left. I knew for a fact I wanted to try the 'Kick Ass Concealer' - I'm always on the look-out for the perfect under-eye concealer and I'd heard that this beauty was very similar to Bobbi Brown's creamy concealer, so for a tenner I couldn't say no. The other product I picked up was the 'Super Cat Extreme Eye Liner Pen'. Lately I've been having a love affair with my trusty MUA felt-tip liner, but me being me stupidly lost it's lid and let it dry up, so I was looking for a new liner when I spied this one for a mere £6. 

So what do I think to them both? First up; the eye liner. I am SO glad I bought this. Although I loved my trusty £1 MUA one, this one beats it hands down. It is a gorgeous, intense black, which glides flawlessly across the eyelid. The small nib makes sure your line your eyes really precisely, which is perfect if you're (like me) a bit clumsy when it comes to applying eye liner. I actually swatched this on my hand to see what the blackness was like and left it all day, and it stayed on - that is always a good sign, especially considering I'm a serial hand-washer! Definite thumbs up for this product - my new favourite and think I would go as far as to say it's better than Illamasqua's Precision Ink, which I know a lot of bloggers rave about. 

The concealer is another hit product for me. Okay, so it doesn't perform miracles (I'm yet to find a concealer which does, sigh) but I can definitely see an improvement in my under-eye circles when I use this; one which rivals my other concealers. The product itself is a 'three step' kit - there are two shades of concealer and a translucent setting powder, all in a neat little compact with an applicator for the powder and a cute little mirror. The concealer itself is so creamy - I knew before trying it that it would be but I was prepared for just how creamy it is. This is great, as it really helps to conceal, but it also makes it really important to set it properly, as I know if it wasn't it would probably cause your under-eye make up to smudge and run a little with the creaminess. I didn't really have this problem; I found it lasted really well and I know I'll be choosing it above my other concealers to concealer my under-eye circles from now on.

Overall I am so impressed with the products I've tried from Soap & Glory's cosmetic range. I honestly cannot fault this brand in the slightest - they always seem to get it right! Have you tried any of Soap & Glory's cosmetic products?

  5. Wow they look great! I've been really wanting a Bobbi Brown concealer but put it off because of the price so I might give this one a go instead :)I'm the same as you, I'm yet to find the perfect concealer. I've heard a lot of good reviews on the Collection 2000 one though?

    Happy New Year! Xx

  10. These look like great products! I'd love to try the eyeliner as I'm awful at using liquid liner yet pencil liner smudges all over my face. Not sure I'll be replacing my boi-ing with this concealer but looks great nonetheless! xxx

  11. I haven't tried any of the range yet, but I'm loving the look of that eyeliner. I wear liquid eyeliner pretty much every day so I'm always on the lookout for the perfect one!

  17. I love these! I have far too many of their cosmetics. I love the supercat! I don't know if you've tried the thick and fast mascara or the cheek tint they are also fabulous!

  19. I'm on the hunt for a great liquid eyeliner so may have to try this, I recently bought their kohl eye pencil and I've fallen in love with it in a big way, it's over taken Mac kohl pencils as my new everyday liner!!

  23. i have to admit im pretty behind the times with this brand and only became aware of the make up range a mont ago.. price tags are a little to be argued along as you get what you pay for other than the packaging..
    great review though, you've deff twisted my arm to try at least one product. :)

  26. I think I am ready to ditch my Collection 2000 liquid liner and try a felt tip pen liner! I suffer from dark skin around the eye area quite often and I was willing to resort to Bobbi Brown concealer but now I'm not too sure!

  28. The concealer looks soo good, I may have to try it, but I'm currently using the C200 Lasting Perfection, so I may wait til that runs out!
    I bought their Smoulder Kohl pencil and it's amazing! Stays on for hours without re-applying, really black and isn't too creamy - it's now my favurite kohl pencil :)

  29. LOVE S&G and am loving the cosmetics I've tried so far. If you want an awesome concealer, try Amazing Cosmetics (sometimes can be found in TK Maxx oddly enough at a really good price). It's the best concealer I've ever tried = )
