First off I’ve lost my lash glue, so I literally put these lashes on with the hope the original stickiness will stay, so that’s why they are a little odd looking. And I know, a lash junkie loses her lash glue, it’s not great! Anyway this a look I have been meaning to get on here in forever but it has just been completely manic lately. So a little while ago now I was contacted by Soap & Glory to see if I wanted to try something from their new make up range. As a huge fan of Soap & Glory fan already, I was really excited to try their make up line.

I was sent this palette called ‘What’s Nude’ which is a gorgeous quartet of very neutral colours. Obviously the 4 colours are absolutely perfect for my colouring and although you could do so, so many looks with just this little palette, I went with a very, very neutral and safe natural every day look, as I know people are a big fan of that. To be honest, I do rock this kind of look most days now, but part of me wanted to use the darker days and smoke it out more! Having said that, the above look literally took 5 minutes, if that, and I spent more time looking for my lash glue, which of course was a hopeless task!

Now although I will confess to owning a lot of MAC eye shadows I honestly, honestly couldn’t care less where I get eye shadow from. As long as it is pigmented and looks pretty, I’ll buy it! I wasn’t sure what to expect of the Soap & Glory eye shadows but wow I LOVE them. And I really do mean that. Like other beauty bloggers I do get contacted with things to try but I only ever pick things that really interest me. The reason I like this palette so much is that the shadows are very pigmented and very soft and creamy. The shade ‘Vanilla’ is literally a dupe for MAC’s own shade called, ‘Vanilla’, so I am absolutely head over heels in love with this one, as it’s so matte and creamy I can use it under my eyes too which saves concealer. The next colour ‘Pink T’ is my least favourite because it swatches okay but doesn’t come out very well when you actually apply it. Then ‘Mudhoney’ and ‘Aubersheen’ are very similar, but I’m loving the iridescent in ‘Aubersheen’, it makes neutral eyes a little more interesting! And you know what, this is now my new go-to eye shadow quad, and I’m starting to think more and more why I got the Urban Decay Naked Palette now…

The palette is priced at £10 and you can get it from larger Boots or online here, and here is the link to the Soap & Glory page where you can read some more reviews. Is £10 a little pricey for a high street brand? Well compared to MAC and Urban Decay the quality is pretty much exactly the same, and YES to the back quote about not including a cheap sponge applicator. HAD to be said!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little Friday face of the day. I hope you have a lovely weekend.

xoxo
