Soap and Glory Makeup







 
Working so close to Oxford Street is a very dangerous thing. I spend pretty much every lunch time wandering the isles of Superdrug and Boots looking for new beauty goods to splurge on. Last week on one of my lunch trips I found my self at the Soap and Glory section of Superdrug and knew I must give in and allowed myself to pick up some bits. It's quite hard to resist the Soap and Glory section once you get there, all of the packaging its so gorgeous and retro. I've tried so much of Soap And Glorys body products but these two products are my first encounter with the makeup side of the brand so I was very excited to give their products a try!

The two products I picked up are the Supercat Extreme Eyeliner Pen and the All about Prime eyeshadow primer in 'Bright Light'. I really needed a new Eyeliner which is how I justified this purchase and I had been told that it's a really good liner so obviously I wanted to try it out for myself. Soap and Glory had a buy one get the second one half price deal on so I chose something else as I can never resist deals! I liked the look of their eyeshadow primer so I popped it in the basket and rushed to the checkout before I changed my mind.  

The Supercat Extreme Eyeliner pen has quickly become one of my favourite eyeliners. Firstly, this is the easier eyeliner I've ever used and is pretty much foolproof. It takes me half the time using this eyeliner than before and it creates a beautiful black defined line. The nib is quite firm so It really is like using a pen and ensures that little to no error is made which for me is a priority.

I'm quite new to the world of eyeshadow primers and I usually just put my normal primer over my eyelid. I've tried the Urban Decay Eyeshadow primer but I find it too expensive. I really wanted a eyeshadow primer that would conceal the blue/purple veins on my eyelid and give them an even finish. It has a slight shimmer when you apply it which at first I thought would irritate me but I actually really like it, its a very light shimmer and looks very natural. I've found that my eyeshadow and eyeliner has lasted a lot longer throughout the day when using this and the finish is really lovely as well!

I'm really impressed with the Soap and Glory beauty products and I am definitely going to try out some more of them! I really like the look of their powders and I've read great things about them so they're definitely on the wishlist!
