As many of you know Soap and Glory launched a makeup range and I was luckily sent away with a few goodies which I will review. Since the lipglosses and hand cream are not new, I shall not be reviewing them; however if you’d like a review then just let me know, and I will!

These are the products I will be reviewing!
  • The Lip Stuff Eye Eye Pallete
  • Thick and Fast Eye Mascara
  • Fabu Lipstick 

Let’s begin!

Lid stuff – Off the Wallflowers

I’m actually a nude sort of girl, but it’s always worth experimenting. The palette is packaged quite simply, and I love the fact that it has a clear lid so you can see the colours without opening it!

The colour payoff isn’t the greatest on my skin tone, so if you want something pigmented then this probably isn’t it. I like to call these palettes the “safe for work palettes” as they’ll give you just a wash of colour, without being overbearing!

There are a mixture of mattes and shimmers too, but the matte colours do not show up very well on my skintone so I’d suggest wearing a primer if you have dark eyes.

Thick and Fast Mascara

Sadly I’m not a fan on this mascara; I just don’t think it’s made for my kind of lashes. My lashes are tiny and extra curly, so excess mascara kept going on my eye lids, leaving little black dots no matter how careful I was. I’m the kinda girl who will wiggle my mascara on my lashes till kingdom come, but I couldn’t with this. I find that it’s a bit gunky and gloopy when you take the wand out of the tube. If you have straight lashes, or long lashes, then perhaps it can work for you!

Mary Poppins anyone? I thought the name sounded very similar to “supercalifragilistic”. I love the name of it! Very Soap and Glory-esque. The lipstick is very very sheer; I had to load on about 4 layers for the colour to show up, and it still appeared sheer. It’s your perfect daytime lipstick, and I really like the colour of it! It’s not super creamy so do moisturize your lips before wearing it. To try and get more colour payoff do try to either conceal your lips, wear a lipliner close to this colour of the lipstick and fill in your lips, or if you like the sheer-ness of it (if that’s a word?) then wear a skin tone lipliner like I have done in the pic below.

Overall Impressions
I actually like the range, if you’re a beginner in makeup and experimenting with colour, or if you’re heavy handed with pigmented eye shadows then the palettes are great. I think they should have a mascara with a smaller wand. Pretty impressed by the lipstick because it had a good consistency and looks even on my skin tone. So all round you can’t go wrong with Soap and Glory cosmetics.
