Soap and Glory Makeup Haul

soap and glory makeup review

Full disclaimer guys, this post is not at all sponsored by Soap & Glory, I have just seriously been digging their makeup recently.

I’m not usually one for wearing much makeup, but since I came across their 2-in-1 Archery brow filling pencil and brush (full review of that *here*), I’ve been suckered in to the range.

More recent additions have included 2 lipsticks, another brow product (this time, a sculpting crayon and setting gel), as well as the blur and brighten concealer. I thought I’d share a few thoughts on each of these newer products in case you were curious as to what Soap and Glory makeup is like! Spoiler alert, I much prefer it to Benefit – and it’s a lot friendlier on the purse, too.

Please excuse the hideously bad photos, I can only blame bad lighting after a long day of work and a desperate attempt at snapping shots quickly in order to get round to editing and uploading them.

Anyway, I picked up this product as I seemed to be blasting through the pencil and brush, so thought I’d see if the sculpting crayon might last me longer. I have to admit that I don’t like this product as much as the pencil, as it’s quite thick and more difficult to use consistently across both brows. If you’re going for the Cara Delevingne look and have the patience to keep at it, then this might be for you. However, the setting gel (as with Benefit’s “Ready. Set, Brow!”) leaves a residue behind which is definitely not the one.

I’ll keep giving the crayon a go to see if I can get my groove with it, and to truly test if it’s better to use than the pencil for everyday use, but I’ll probably be leaving the setting gel well alone.

I hardly ever wear lipstick, at all. I always feel a bit like a clown wearing it and that my lips are way too dry so end up cracked and gross after using it. HOWEVER, that has changed somewhat since I started using the Sexy Mother Pucker Matte Lip in Pretty Muted.

I like the subtle colour of this shade, and how it does make my lips look a bit fuller. I’d say that my lips are quite small, and this lipstick does help to add a bit of volume. It’s also a nice creamy texture so helps my lips look and feel more moisturised. The only downside is that the effect does not last all that long so needs pretty regular top ups.

After trying and loving the pretty muted shade, I decided to get what I deemed a more ‘daring’ colour of lipstick. Yup, I consider this “daring”. Still, although a little less subtle than the muted shade, this lipstick isn’t over the top at all. I liked it so much, I had to share two photos. You lucky things.

Again, it has the same nice creamy texture and creates a more full looking lip, but it also doesn’t last all that long. Booooo.

The second I first took the lid off this product, I made a mess. I didn’t realise it would be ‘wound up’ to full length and I ended up scraping the side with the lid instantly. So soz about how messy it looks. I had high hopes for this concealer though, as I adore their Kick Ass Concealer camouflage kit which fyi is probably the best concealer ever. This blur and brighten offering is still pretty damn good though, with a nice soft velvety texture and pretty decent coverage, too.

The packaging does annoy me a bit, as it would be good to be able to wind down the product. I’m notoriously clumsy and I imagine one day I’m going to end up breaking off the end by accident. If I can refrain from doing that though, this will continue to be perfect for covering pesky spots and taking the edge off of the glamorous bags I have been harbouring underneath my eyes for some time.

I have one or two other Soap and Glory makeup bits that I am still to try out properly, but I have high hopes that the brand is going to remain my favourite for a little while yet.

Have you ever tried Soap and Glory makeup? Do you have any favourite products?

    Oh I didn’t even know Soap and Glory had makeup. These things look lovely though. Now I only gotta find out whether they sell it in Austria too 🙂

    Love, Kerstin

    Eeek I love reading about Soap & Glory, I love their products but since they are a little steeper in prices I love to get other people’s opinions first! The colour of the lip pencil is absolutely lovely, it seems like such a good shade for day to day wear – I recently picked up a similar coloured one by NYX from their Matte lipstick range, but I might give this line a shot at some point as the texture sounds lovely! I don’t think I’ll try out the brow product though cos I’m one of those natural-brow gals!

      I love reading about S&G products for the same reason which is why I thought I’d do the post! Both of the lipsticks are a lovely every day shade – I’m thinking of getting the other shades available too! I haven’t tried any nyx products before so it would be interesting to compare. I’m a more natural brow gal too, which is why I prefer the pencil and brush to the crayon as the pencil is best for just filling in my patchy caterpillars! x

    I used to LOVE the Archery Brow Pencil but it ran out and I just didn’t buy another. At the moment I’m using a £1 MUA eyeshadow for my brows and it does the job 🙂

      Archery Brow is amazing – I prefer the crayon over the pencil now though as used right it does save a lot of time and doesn’t run out as quickly as the pencil! Funny how opinions change over time! I haven’t really ever tried an eyeshadow for brows but glad to hear it works well 🙂
