As many will know typically my skin is very oily, one pressed powder many have recommended is Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot (£12). Now my products only arrived a few days ago so I haven't properly road tested them as of yet but from first impressions I have to say that this lives up to the hype. It is a fairly sheer translucent powder in terms of coverage but does a rather stellar job of keeping oil at bay - particularly on my t-zone. So far, so good. Look for a full review in the coming weeks.
Years ago (and I mean years) I recall Soap & Glory cosmetics (as in the make-up) launching; Fleur de Force featuring and raving about the Soap & Glory Lid Stuff Eyeshadow palette in What's Nude. Isn't it funny what you remember? Anyway I can see why this quad features in favourite posts month in and month out - the shades are wonderfully coordinated, well pigmented and easy to blend. I have only tried this palette twice and have noticed that without primer my oily eye lids do encourage the formulation to crease and fade. Other than that this is a wonderful, small neutral palette for everyday use as well as travel. I can't believe it only costs £10!
Lastly we have a blush come highlighter all rolled into one and in my favourite type of hue - peach!Soap & Glory Peach Party Multi-Colour Blush Brick (£11) is super pigmented and very shimmer based which may not be to everyone's taste but it certainly is brightening. Although pigmented it blends out with ease meaning there is no harsh lines. If like myself you find yourself cut short for time this is a great all in one blush to add both radiance and a little pop of colour in one quick sweep.
The current Boots Let's Feel Like New campaign ends on the 17th of February so there is still plenty of time to snap up your favourites. I am thinking about purchasing the Soap & Glory Glow All Out Luminizing Face Powder - has anyone tried it?
