Soap and Glory Make Up Haul

Hello all! Does anyone else remember the days when Soap & Glory was just bubble bath and body lotions or the buzz that was created when they first launched their very own make up God knows how long ago? I remember being a little obsessed with the pucker up lip gloss which I still have and which is still a firm favourite, but aside from the odd One Heck of a Blot purchase I never really seem to pay much attention to the pretty as ever S&G stand in Boots, and heaven only knows why?! I was having a bit of a rubbish day a few weeks ago so decided to pick up a few bits of make up to make me feel better, and since the S&G stand had a 3 for 2 offer I decided that I could wait no longer to try some of the products the brand has to offer.

The first thing I picked up was the Archery Brow Tint and Pencil as it was literally the first time in forever I had seen it in stock in my brow colour Brownie Points. I like the idea of this and the fact it has a really finely nibbed pen for precision and accuracy. The tint looks amazing for creating natural looking brows even if ever so slightly disappointing that the colour is a little lighter than I would have wanted. The pencil seems fairly pigmented and I like that there is one included that as I always have to outline my brows with a pencil first before filling them in so this is just perfect really. I'm really glad that I managed to find this eventually as I've heard amazing reviews and I just can't wait to start using it.

I was also looking for a new One Heck of a Blot Powder but unfortunately they didn't have it in stock so I picked up the Kick Ass Instant Retouch Powder instead. This one is completely translucent and very finely milled so I can only imagine that this will be amazing for those 12 hour days when I really need my make up to last the course. The S&G powder I normally use is better than some of the really high end ones so of course I'll be expecting big things from this one too! I've used a little already and I have to say I am impressed with just how long this seems to keep me shine free even in my work where it is disgustingly hot sometimes.

Last but not least I decided to try one of the Lid Stuff Eye Shadow Palettes in Nude Stuff, because who doesn't need a twelfth eye shadow palette really? I just loved the two very neutral matt shades along with a highlight and a subtle shimmery brown and I think this is going to be absolutely perfect for packing when I go away in the summer, and its actually quite fitting that I'm going to London and Berlin as I always like to keep my make up as natural as possible in the hot and sticky summer city heat. I can't comment on the pigment or longevity of the shadows yet as I haven't had the chance to try them but I am looking forward to using them, the only thing that makes me sad is that this doesn't come with a mirror but I guess I'll have to use one from one of the other sixteen palettes I have (haw haw).
