Soap and Glory Haul!


Soap and Glory is quickly becoming a popular name within my make up collection.
I was really impressed with their Kick Ass Concealer which I've done a full review on here and so when I saw that Boots had a 3 for 2 offer across various products in store, I ran for the Soap and Glory counter and my boyfriend (who is honestly the kindest guy ever - he buys so much of my make up... oops!) treated me to a few things!


Show Good Face 2 in 1 Energizing Foundation and Primer - £11

I've been looking for a new foundation for a while now. I just find that everything I've been using has looked too heavy on my skin and I think I just needed something a little lighter and a bit more fresh to make my skin look a little bit more alive.

I picked this up in the shade 'Fairest of them all' which I think is really sweet and is a perfect match for my skin which I was a little surprised about if I'm honest, as there weren't many shades which is usually a bad sign! But, I hold my hands up, I was wrong.

This is a 2 in 1 primer and foundation which is supposed to have 'long wearing lightscramble luminospheres'. I'll be honest, I have absolutely no idea what that means, but it sounds fancy doesn't it?!
It's supposed to give a 'bright, dewy, flawless finish' which is perfect.
The packaging is a black squeezy bottle which I'm getting on with so far.
I've been using this for about a week now and I love it!
If you're looking for a lot of coverage though, this isn't for you.



Solar Powder Multi-Shade Bronzer - £11

I'd heard a lot of really good things about the Solar Powder bronzer and I was actually on the hunt for a new bronzer in Boots when I was there - I nearly bought one from L'oreal which looks amazing... I'll probably still get that one because I'm out of control!

There are two shades in the pan - one is a dark matte brown shade and the other is a very pale shimmery brown shade.
While the colours aren't the best for my skin tone in terms of countouring or highlighting on their own, they are perfect for just warming up my pale skin and making me look a little bit sun-kissed and giving me a healthy glow.
I really like this and the colours are both wearable, even on my pale skin but there is only one shade and I might have preferred a lighter duo.
The packaging is cardboard which isn't the most sturdy of choices but it doesn't feel like it's going to fall apart in my make up bag at all... and it has a big mirror in so I can't complain really, can I?


Supercat Eyeliner Pen - £6

It's no surprise that I picked up this little gem!
Everybody loves the Supercat liner and I'm no exception.
I'm not too bad with a liquid eyeliner but having a felt tip is just honestly so much easier and I can create beautiful winged eyes in literally seconds, whack on some red lipstick and I'm good to go in no time! No fussing around or worrying that I'll make a mistake.

This really lives up to its 'carbon black' name as it's a really rich, glossy black which stays on all day and doesn't crack or smudge or just disappear like some other liners do on me.
I love trying out new liners and searching for 'the one' but I always turn back to this one at some point because it does what it says it will and it's just a brilliant product!
It's definitely a good one to try if you aren't confident using liquid or gel liner!
