What seems like a complete age ago, on Black Friday, I treated myself to the Extrava-Glam-Za makeup set from Soap & Glory. Over the past few weeks I’ve been using it and I’m pretty impressed.
Sexy Mother Pucker lip plumping glosses in Candy Queen and Plumsup
I already knew I loved soap and glory lip glosses. Some people complain about their slightly overpowering sweet scent and say they’re sticky but I don’t agree. The scent is like chocolate orange, and who doesn’t love that smell?
The shades I got in this set were brilliant – one is a really soft pink shade, perfect for everyday and the other is a berry colour which is nice for Autumn/Winter. The glosses tingle a little on application as they are supposed to plump your lips.
Lid Stuff Eye Shadow palette (including shades Fair Dues, How Nude, Twinkle Bells, Mauve on Up, Iced Coffee and Plumble)
The shades in this palette are gorgeous – loads of smokey eye staples with some vibrant purples and silvers too. I think my favourite is the gold for a perfect party eye. This palette is small enough to go in your clutch bag too, bonus!
Archery Brow Tint & Precision Shaping pencil (in shade Brownie Points)
I was a little worried this would be too dark for me as I have blonde hair, but it’s actually a really nice shade and doesn’t come out too harsh. I found it was long lasting and gave a bold but fairly natural look to my brows.
Supercat Carbon Black Extreme liquid eyeliner pen
I’m not usually one to use a liquid/pen eyeliner, opting for a kohl pencil instead, but this was really nice and foolproof to use as well (great for a liquid eyeliner novice like me). It was quite hard wearing too and lasted ages!
Thick & Fast High Definition Collagen Coat Mascara
The only thing I didn’t like about this mascara was how hard it was to photograph(!) but in all seriousness, this is a fantastic mascara. It gives just the right thickness without becoming clumpy and it is nice and dark.
The Glow all Out face powder
This powder doubles up as a highlighter as it has a nice subtle glow to it, which can be built up or toned down, taking you from day to night easily. It gave me a really nice glow and hid the fact that I hadn’t slept for days!
Did you get the Extrava-Glam-Za set whilst it was on offer? Are you a fan of Soap & Glory makeup?
