Soap & Glory - Kick Ass Concealer


I have been so slow (in beauty blogger terms) to pick up my first Soap and Glory cosmetic item. What inspired me to finally take the plunge was the voucher in my big splendour gift set at Christmas offering 200 bonus points when you spent £10 on the S&G makeup range (well done Boots, your marketing worked!). I bought the concealer because it reminded me of the Bobbi Brown corrective concealer duo's and the quality was very reminiscent of my old favourite Benefit Boi-ing.


Usually when I shop for a concealer I look for a skin tone match as I would with a foundation so this was a totally different direction for me as it has 2 shades, neither of which are my 'match'. The left side is a peach toned under eye corrector and the right is a yellow toned redness corrector for blemishes and such. As well as the concealer you also get a setting powder and a little pad with which to apply it. It's a really substantial, expensive feeling product from the drugstore!


The image above shows the under eye concealer on the left and the anti-redness concealer on the right. Below you can see the left half of my (rather miserable looking) face is concealed and the right is not, I have indicated where each shade has been applied...

This being the first thing I've tried from Soap & Glory (makeup wise) I will definitely be trying some more. It really impressed me and I've not used another concealer since I bought it a month ago.

You can buy your own here for £10 from Boots online
The shade I have is light (if that wasn't obvious)

  5. I have stood in front of the Soap and Glory cosmetics on several occasions, and always left empty handed. I have resolved to five this a try next time! Thanks for your review!

  7. For a tenner - sounds like a bargain. I tried the S&G mascara I got free with this months Marie Clair magazine & too be honest I wasn't that impressed, so hopefully I'll have better luck with one of their other products.

  9. Like the fact that you get a setting powder with it too, Soap & Glory have excelled themselves!
