Soap & Glory - Kick Ass Concealer

Sunday, 9 December 2012

•It'll come as no surprise that as your average twenty something beauty and fashion obsessed girl, I'm always on the look out for new products to use that will improve any beautifying regime I may have in place. For some time now I've been loyal to base / skin make up from MAC but have also been conscious that I spend a lot of money on products that I like (and trust in) without giving much else a try, so it was with this in mind that I decided to cheat on my Pro Longwear Concealer (in NW25) for something a little less expensive.

First of all, I think it was the packaging that did it. I'm a sucker for anything that comes in an attractive box and has a catchy name so this Kick Ass Concealer by Soap & Glory pretty much had me at hello. Second of all, for £10 I really felt like I was getting a good deal as you're kinda getting three products in one compact, now who doesn't like to feel like they're getting a freebie?

The Kick Ass Concealer is 'a three piece flaw camouflage kit' which consists of an under eye brightening concealer with 'puff ease', a superwear lightscramble face concealer and concealer sealing translucent powder with 'insta fix'. Sounds pretty kick ass so far no?!

I've found the the consistency to be lovely and have genuinely marvelled on every occasion that I've used this so far! Both the under eye and general concealer are a lightweight mix of creamyness and mousse-like texture (it feels a lot like Boing by Benefit) which applies evenly over my MAC Prep + Prime Skin Primer and pretty much stays put throughout my day. I picked mine up in 'Medium' (it also comes in 'Light') and think the tones have really suited my medium skin tone. The under eye concealer (handily labelled as Step 1 on the compact) counteracts the purpley tones sleeplessness seems to bring on leaving me look bright eyed (and awake) and the face concealer (labelled Step 2) effectively covers the blemishes or pimples I suffer with every so often and since it's been so cold out that's been rather a regular thing! Step 3 is a translucent settling powder which comes with a tiny sponge and sets the whole look in place, making sure my coverage stays smudge free all day.

Overall, I think I may be guilty of turning my back on my MAC Pro Longwear but this compact is such a great product, so cute, easy to use and carry plus so handy with it's little mirror, I just don't think I can justify paying more and getting less again! Do you use any of Soap & Glory's make up products? I'd love to try more so please pop your recommendations below!xo
