Soap and Glory Kick Ass Blur and Brighten Crayon

For Christmas every year I always get a lot of Soap and Glory bath and body products. People must know me really well beause these type of gifts always go down an absolute storm and more than a month after Christmas I still have a huuuuuugebag of untouched S&G goodies just waiting to be used. Despite the ridiculous amounts of bath and body type products I only really got a few make up bits from them this year which my mum put in my stocking and the most interesting of them all was this little concealer...

The reason I was so drawn to this Soap and Glory Kick Ass Blur and Brighten Crayon is that I used to use the standard S&G Kick Ass Concealer and let me tell you I was obsessed with it! Not only was it great coverage and easy to use but the packaging was super adorable and so handy for travelling, so when I saw that there was a new product in crayon form, how could I not want to try it?! On the S&G website it states: "With long lasting coverage that leaves skin looking revived and refreshed this roll up, multi tasking concealer is perfect for girls on the go!" Seeing as I have the worlds worst under eye circles then I thought this would be completely perfect for me! 

Unfortunately I was wrong and this is not everything I hoped it would be. I found it very creamy and easy to blend which is one of the only good things about this concealer in my opinion, however, in terms of coverage it just wasn't cutting it for me. Don't get me wrong there are plenty of brightening concealers out there which don't have much coverage (Touche Eclat anyone?) but what annoyed me was that this claims to be a high coverage concealer when in actual fact it is very light. This isn't a bad product overall and as a brightening and highlighting product I think it would work extremely well, I'm just a little bewildered as to why it isn't promoted as such! 

I have found that using it over my high coverage concealer does a good job of brightening the under eye area and adding a bit of radiance and I am still quite impressed with how well this blends and the gorgeous creamy texture, unfortunately I don't think I would buy this again as it doesn't have the level of coverage I am looking for and I'd be much better off with the original Kick Ass Concealer. On another note, however, this is only £6.00 so its a really affordable product and often in Boots the S&G stand is buy one get one half price! If you like cute gimmicky products and are looking for something more natural say for school or work then this would be perfect.

Have any of you tried this concealer? How did you find it?

  1. I was going to try this at some point but lots of people seem to think it's a bit pants! I've been using the Amazing Cosmetics concealer and that is AH.MAY.ZING - high coverage without being heavy or creasing. Worth the price. In drugstore concealer a, Bourjois Happy Light ultra covering concealer is pretty good I find x
