I’ve always been a huge Soap & Glory fan. They’re one brand that has managed to produce equally great products across their bodycare, skincare and makeup ranges. Usually a brand can only do one category really well but Soap & Glory is a bit of an all rounder. Recently unkown to myself and my beauty shopaholic status I accumulated a good few new to me Soap & Glory products. So I thought I’d show you what I bought and take you through some speedy first impressions!
I’m not really a primer fan in general. I’m not keen on strong silicone textures and some primers are just do nothing for me – I’m looking at you MAC Prep and Prime Primer. So I always approach a primer with a sceptical look on my face. I got a dinky pot of this Benefit Stay Don’t Stray eye primer in a minis set last Christmas but it had been lingering around my stash unused. I’ve recently been facing some serious undereye darkness and was finding my concealer wasn’t getting me through the day, so I decided I’d give this a try.
Occasionally a product comes into my life that makes me wonder why I haven’t found it sooner! I read a few reviews of this recently but it was Pink Elephant Blogs comparison with YSL Touche Eclat that had me sold. My local chemist had a 25% off offer recently so it would have been foolish not to have picked this up!
Now I’m not sure that this product will be breaking news for everyone but it’s one of those products that I’ve been meaning to pick up forever. It’s a concealer pen by Aldis beauty brand Lacura. I couldn’t resist as I was picking up some not so glamorous cotton wool beside it. For €4.99 it wasn’t going to bust the shopping budget.
It’s actually quite fancy looking for a supermarket brand. It comes in a sleek black pen, similar to the Yves Saint Laurent brush pen, although no metal feel here, it’s plastic! It has the same click bottom system as Touche Eclat and you have to click it a few times to get the concealer moving.
