Ok, let’s be real, I would love my entire makeup collection to be from Chanel and Tom Ford, but unfortunately, my bank balance doesn’t allow it. Having said that, I’ve learnt that high price doesn’t mean high quality, and that you don’t need to splurge to have a good makeup stash.
My Soap and Glory love started when I was told to try their bath and body range. To continue the love affair, I thought it made sense for me to branch out and try their cosmetics. Side note, their Sugar crush body scrub is divine. So here are my thoughts on the Soap and Glory makeup range.
Archery 2-in-1 brow filling pencil and brush / £8
If you’re a blogger, or read blogs, you’ll probably have heard of the cult eyebrow pencil from Soap and Glory, Archery. Considered a dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, it’s a perfect everyday brow pencil. Even though I love the ABH Brow Wiz, I use Archery every day and cannot rave about it enough. The waxy pencil gives you a natural looking, fuller brow. The spooley is also great to tame unruly brows. If you are a fan of filling in your brows, I would highly recommend Soap and Glory’s Archery. Watch out though, as there are two different brow pencils, purchase this one, rather than the tint and pencil (as they look very similar on the shelf).
One heck of a blot powder / £12
This translucent powder helps to keep oil at bay, it’s non cakey formula is great for applying throughout the day. The powder texture is fairly finely milled and helps to keep your base as matte as possible. Although it’s not a product that helps to cover up blemishes (as it’s translucent), it’s handy to keep in your bag if you find your skin prone to being quite oily throughout the day.
Archery DIY brow bar / £12
I’ve only used this product a couple of times and have to say I’m not blown away by the brow bar. Mainly because I prefer to draw my eyebrows on with a pencil rather than using powder. I’m also not sure on the gel formula or the two brow colours. I do however like the highlight in the set as it looks really natural on my brow bone. If you would rather use an eyeshadow to fill in your brows, then you may like this, it’s a great little compact.
Sexy Mother-Pucker Lipstick – Matte Powder Coat / £9
A nude dusky pink colour, which suits many skin tones. These are described as being matte lipsticks, but I feel like this lipstick is actually a little glossy. It’s also pretty pigmented with a hint of subtle shimmer. Although the staying power isn’t great (will last a few hours), the smell is lovely and sweet. I mean it’s not my favourite drugstore lipstick but is a great day time lipstick.
Solar powder bronzer and highlight compact / £11
One of my favourite products from Soap and Glory is Solar Powder. It’s a bronze and highlight compact which is great for contouring. The formula is very bendable and great for a day time subtle contour. You can mix the two shades for a lovely bronzer or use either section for contour and highlight. If you’re looking for a drug store contour powder which is long lasting, I would recommend this.
Peach party blush brick / £11
A highly pigmented and shimmery blush brick, Peach Party blush such be used sparingly. Not dissimilar to Nars Orgasm or Bobbi Brown’s shimmer brick, this is a drugstore dupe to some high end favourites. Although this can be a heavy blush, it looks really nice as a highlight, if you use a fan brush to lightly dust your check bones.
Soap and Glory has a great range of products and they affordable without compromising quality. If I was to recommend two products, I would suggest Archery if you like to fill in your brows and Solar Powder for a good all day contour. I’d love to know what Soap and Glory products you would suggest to try!
