SOAP&GLORY MAKE-UP FAVOURITES



Trick and Treatment Under Eye Concealer £9
I have seriously bad black under eye circles as I suffer from insomnia so I'm pretty fussy when it comes to under eye concealer. I really didn't get on with this to begin with as I found it difficult to blend and not the best coverage, but I persevered (mainly because I absolutely love the packaging and name!!) and have discovered that when applied with the Real Techniques Contour Brush (which you get in the Core Collection) it's one of the best concealers I've ever tried. I apply quite a generous amount in large semi-circles under my eyes going right up into the inner corners and then blend with quite gentle strokes and if you leave it for just a minute or two it really absorbs into the skin and completely balances out the darkness. It's super long lasting and doesn't crease or become visible on the skin at all; I'm completely in love :)
Sexy Mother Pucker 'Charm Offensive' Lip Gloss £9
I got this in 'The Next Big Thing' set at Christmas and having had it in one of the sets a couple of years ago I wasn't that excited by it as I didn't like the minty taste and tingly feeling it gave to the lips. However the formula has completely changed and it is honestly now the dreamiest lipgloss ever! The minty smell and unpleasant tingling are gone but it still makes lips look really full and glossy without any stickiness and this nudey pink colour is so perfect for everyday wear. I absolutely love the applicator too, it's sort of bendy and glides around the lips so easily. I can't stop wearing it and it's the most long lasting lipgloss I've tried so I'm definitely going to have to get some more colours :)
Supercat Liquid Black Eyeliner Pen £6
Since having my full fringe cut back in I've really fallen in love with wearing winged eyeliner and this Supercat pen is just so easy to use I'm completely obsessed with it. It gives a lovely fine line with very little effort and I don't seem to ever go wrong when using this which is perfect for when I'm rushing to get ready for work in the morning. It gives such a dark black colour pay off too with just one application (some of the others I've tried have been more of a grey and needed a few layers) and it stays put throughout the whole day without any smudging. Even with using it every day I can get quite a few months out of one of these and it doesn't dry up at all; it's such a good buy for just £6!

What do you think of Soap & Glory make-up? Let me know if there's anything else I need to try :)
