Hi lovelies! As soon as I saw that Boots' star gift of the week was Soap and Glory's Girl-o-Whirl, I knew I had to have it. For those of you who aren't aware, this cosmetic kit is currently on offer for £19 for one week only. It's usually £40 so grab it here whilst you still can!
The kit contains 6 lid stuff eyeshadows, Soap and Glory's best selling thick and fast mascara, a sexy mother pucker gloss stick, glow all out face powder, solar powder bronzer, 6 supercolourfabulipsticks, an eyeshadow brush, powder brush and a lip brush.
I am a huge fan of Soap and Glory bath/skincare products and had only ever tried the thick and fast mascara before purchasing this gift set. My expectations were so high for this kit but unfortunately, it definitely has not met them.
Firstly, I had to swatch the lighter eyeshadows about 3 times for them to actually show up on my hand. I do think Dandy Plum is absolutely gorgeous though and I can already sense that I'll be wearing it a lot over the festive period.
I'm not all that impressed with the colour range for the lipsticks, I'd have loved a bright pink in there somewhere! My heart sank a little when I swatched these too, they're really not all that pigmented. If I'd have purchased one of the full sized lipsticks for £9 a pop, I wouldn't have been a happy bunny!
Funnily enough, Solar Powder and Glow All Out haven't impressed me whatsoever. As you can see, the pigmentation, again, is next to nothing. They are basically glorified talc.
I'm not too put out as I bought this with my advantage card points so it was practically free. I just feel so disheartened when quite expensive brands aren't as good as the likes of MUA who manage to pull off amazingly good EVERYTHING for such a cheap price!
I'd love to know how you've all got on with this kit or other Soap and Glory cosmetics. I feel sad that I don't love the kit because I really wanted it to be my new favourite thing.
