Soap & Glory are currently celebrating their tenth birthday and because I’ve pretty much been slathering Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Shine on my lips since day one I thought I’d dedicate a blog post to them and all the amazing new products the’ve just launched!
Initially I was planning to include my top 10 favourite S&G products in this post but then realised it would become a never-ending post! So here are some of their new arrivals that I think are pretty great. However if you do want to know my favs from the brand just let me know!
Sweet Ten-Tation Gift Set
£20.00 – Boots online here or in-store
First up I had to include this amazing limited edition gift set that has been especially launched for their birthday! This as you may have guessed includes ten products in a rather lovely cake tin and is available at Boots and Boots online and is an affordable £20 – not bad as it works out at £2 per product AND you get a huge cake tin!
What’s inside the Sweet Ten-tation gift set? Clean on Me Shower Gel, The Scrub Of Your Life Body Buffer, The Righteous Butter, Hand Food Hand Cream, Heel Genius Foot Cream, Original Pink Body Spray, Face Soap & Clarity Facial Wash, Thick & Fast Mascara and Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Gloss.
I personally think gift sets like these are ideal for splitting up for birthday presents (of course keeping a few for yourself!) or just stocking up on – you can never have enough body/bath products, right? Also the cute cake tin with the fork image to the bottom of it just makes the set even more worth it. Favourite products in the set for me are the Thick & Fast Mascara (already own and love it) and the Hand Food Hand Cream. But I’m excited to try out the facial wash and mini Sexy Moth Pucker gloss in Candy Queen.
Moving swiftly onto new arrivals from S&G there’s a new skinny addition to the Supercat eyeliner range, two new affordable eyeshadow palettes and a totally new range of super soft blushers that I’m totally in love with – if you are going to pick up anything, make it one of the blushers below!
The Ultimatte Eyeshadow Palette
£11.00 – Boots here or in-store
First up my favourite palette from the two new releases! The Ultimatte palette as you may have guessed is all matte and oh, I’m impressed. This 10-pan palette contains the softest matte shadows you ever did feel. Now I will admit I do avoid matte eyeshadow on the high street as formulas can be hit and miss but Soap & Glory really excel themselves with their matte shadows and offer good pigmentation, no fall out, no creasing and seamless blending. As you can see the palette contains a good range of neutral shades for both day and night and there are at least 3 shades that could be used to fill in the brows. I don’t think I’ve ever been as excited for an all matte eyeshadow palette before! Favourite shades – most of them!
Kick into Neutral Eyeshadow Palette
£11.00 – Boots here or in-store
As for the second palette… I’ll be honest, I don’t like it as much. Yes, there are a few gorgeous shades in here such as ‘Rich Tea’ and ‘Cocoa-Cabana’ but on the whole pigmentation is lacking and when Sleek offer amazing pigmentation and more eyeshadows for less I simply couldn’t recommend this to you. However S&G beat Sleek with their matte eyeshadows – easily! For anyone starting out in makeup this would be a fab palette as it offers a nice wash of colour and easy to blend shades. But if you love the likes of MAC and Urban Decay this palette just won’t cut it sadly. Trust me The Ultimatte palette is worth it though!
Made You Blush!
£9 each (£7 introductory price!) Boots here or in-store
Now if you love blusher then this is certainly an exciting launch… I promise if you swatch one of these bad boys in-store you will be considering snapping them all up on the current 3 for 2 offer! The new rangeconsists of 3 gorgeously soft blushers in 3 beautiful shades – Cheeky Pink, Twinkle Rose and Rosy Chic. What I love most about the blushers is how insanely soft they are under the finger and to sweep over the cheek, which means they blend a dream and look so soft and natural on the skin. My favourite shade has we be ‘Rosy Chic’ as it works with my naturally pale skin well but also works when I go to town with bronzer and contour! However Twinkle Rose is a stunning pink blusher with a champagne highlight to it – one to swatch! I also love the cute packaging with a handy mirror and a not so awful brush. I have a feeling these blushers are going to be popular!
Let me know your thoughts on the new launches! Are you as excited about the new blushers as I am? And if you love S&G what’s your favourite range they do? For me it’s the Lime-y Sugar Crush range!
Happy Birthday Soap & Glory – you certainly are the most fun beauty brand on the high street!
