When it comes to Soap & Glory makeup, I'm a fanatic. I haven't tried a single product I haven't liked yet and the packaging always draws me in so when I spotted they were on offer for 3 for 2 in Boots, I couldn't help but have a peak. As a result I ending up walking out with three products I hadn't tried before.

I instantly knew I wanted to try the 'One Heck of a Blot' Super Translucent Mattifying Powder. I've always preferred translucent powder because it doesn't make me look cakey like some coloured pressed powders do, plus every blogger out there raves about this. As far as translucent powders go, this is fab. It mattifys my skin whilst feeling lightweight and doesn't change the colour of my foundation underneath. Fab stuff.

I'm a sucker for brow products, forever wanting that perfect 'MAC employee' brow but I can be lazy sometimes. On those days, pencils are for me. So I instantly grabbed the 'Arch de Triumph' two step shaping and highlighting crayon in Taupe/Buff. If I'm honest I'm not a massive fan of the brow pencil part. I have only tried it once but I've found it struggled to transfer onto my brows, almost like I was dragging it across with minimal effect. The highlighter on the other hand is just stunning. It's such a gorgeous champagne pink shimmery that is so buttery and blends beautifully into the skin.

The product I was most excited to try is the 'Sexy Mother Blusher' in Onamatopeacha. Firstly, the name is so clever, I literally announced it to everyone who was around me (got some weird looks!) Secondly, best blusher ever. Bold statement and I mean every word of it. It goes from a cream stick to powder blush effortlessly, blends out like a dream and is such a beautiful colour. I am so impressed with this!

Have you tried any of these? What did you think?



  1. I absolutely adore the blot powder & blush stick (: It's a shame about the brow part of the Arch de Triumph but the highlighter looks stunning (: xx

    1. I would say that if you haven't tried the Arch de Triumph, it's worth giving it a go just because the highlighter is so gorgeous! xx
