The Best of Soap and Glory

The retro packaging and cute names drew me in, Soap and Glory has become one of my favourite high street brands. The One Heck of a Blot Powder was the first S&G product to make a home in my makeup bag. Lightweight, translucent and a shine stopper, I’ve repurchased this over and over again.

The One Heck of a Blot line also contains a primer, it’s lightweight and moisturising, but also keeps oil at bay. Its texture is more like a moisturiser, great for anyone who doesn’t want a silicone based primer. I have oily skin and this creates the perfect canvas to lay foundation on but also keeps the excess oils at bay. The One Heck of a Blot Primer and Powder are beginning and end of my routine and I switch between different foundation and concealers in between.

Speaking of concealer, if your dark circles need to be banished, opt for the Soap and Glory Kick Ass Concealer. An excellent dupe for the Bobbi Brown correctors and concealers. One side has a peachy toned product, created to counteract the blue and grey tones. The other has a creamy concealer which blends like a dream with a Beauty Blender. This compact has a pan of powder, which means it’s perfect for touch ups on the go. You can’t bake the under eye with this but its super light and finely milled, so it gives crease free under eyes.

Another can live without S&G product is their Archery brow product, as you can see here come in many different shapes and sizes. My all-time favourite is the super skinny one with the spoolie on the end, I have 4 backups of this in my drawers. The other alternatives include a version which has a slanted flat tip with a clear gel, another with a felt nib and their newest addition to the line the Brow Fibre Gel. This is a dupe of the Benefit Gimme Grow. I’m still mastering the technique but after seeing Charlotte Tilbury’s tutorial on Nic from Pixiwoo, I’m determined to get it down for big youthful brows.

Their Blushing Powders create a beautifully sheen on the cheeks, bringing dull skin to life. I have the shades, Love at First Blush, which has your conventional pink blush tones and Peach Party, which perks up any complexion with flattering peach tones. It’s a 'swirl your brush around, smile and apply to apples of the cheeks' kind of product. You could use some of the lighter ones as eyeshadows with a fine brush if you like multi-use products.

I'm also a lover of their Supercat Liquid Felt Tip Liner. It creates feline flicks in seconds with a super matte black finish. As far as felt tip liners go this one lasts a long time and doesn't try out quickly.

Lastly, is the Soap and Glory Sexy Motherpucker Gloss Stick, these handbag friendly mini lip crayons add a hint of colour, as well as a touch of moisture. Being a glossy formula these don’t last very long on the lips but they do leave a soft tint to the lips after.

Which Soap and Glory products have you tried?



  1. Shamefully I've never owned any Soap & Glory products, but after my next payday I'm determined to pick some up! Archery Brow and One Heck of a Blot are top of my list.

  3. I love using Peach Party as a highlight (the pale shade) and find it works really well! My favourite from Soap & Glory has to be either Supercat liner (so quick & easy to use) or Thick & Fast HD mascara - which is a little underrated in my opinion! Great post.
