A glimpse at Soap and Glory make up products

I've always been a huge soap and glory fan but more for their shower and body products rather than their beauty products. However, over Christmas (thanks to my family) I received some soap and glory sets which included some of their make up products. Needless to say I was very keen to give them a try.

The first product was Soap and Glorys Thick and Fast mascara. Since I've got it I've been using it religiously for everyday make up. The brush is much thicker than any other mascara I've used and this seems to help the mascara to coat the lashes very well. I personally only apply one coat of mascara for day time and this seems to be enough to really lift the lashes whilst giving them a good coat of mascara making them look fuller. I've never had any fallout under my eyes from the mascara and it generally doesn't clump upon application. Unfortunately the mascara isn't waterproof (which is a pain if, like me, you live in Ireland, a country that never seems to stop raining) so I tend not to wear it if I'm going anywhere too important incase it runs. But like I said, day to day I really like it :)

The second soap and glory product I got was their sexy mother pucker lipgloss. I have two shades, 'candy gloss' and 'punch bowl'. I also received an XL extreme plump lipgloss in the shade 'pink out loud'. First of all I love the word play by soap and glory, they're product names really make me laugh. All the lip-glosses contain plumping microspheres, which they claim actually enlarge or plump up the size of your lips. Upon application the lipgloss makes your mouth tingle and sting a little. I found this really strange at first but I do however feel that the lip-glosses do in fact enhance your natural lips and give them a look of plumpness. The shades I have are all shades of pink, candy gloss is a very subtle lipgloss for daytime whereas punch bowl and pink out loud can be worn for daytime or night time. 

I was so impressed with the mascara and lip-glosses that I went out and bought another make up product from soap and glory, the 'archery brow tint and precision shaping pencil' in the shade brownie points. One end of the product has a felt tip marker that allows you to fill in any sparse areas on your brows. I really like that it's a felt tip as it allows me to be very precise allowing the brows to appear more natural. On the other end there is a twist up wax type pencil that allows you to thicken your brows after you've filled in the sparse areas. 

As you can see I've only tried a handful of soap and Glorys make up range but if these products are anything to go by I'll definitely be purchasing more. If you have any recommendations of soap and glory products I should try please let me know in the comments :)
