TESTING THE DRUGSTORE


It's pretty clear from my blog that I've turned into a huge make up snob, it started a few years ago and ever since I've refused to put anything on my face that wasn't 'high end.' It's not necessarily a bad habit, just a very expensive one.
Anyway, a few days ago Boots had a 3 for 2 and Soap & Glory make up, and since Christmas just passed I had money to play with, and I was going to get 1 item free? Don't get that in Space NK.
Soap & Glory was a brand I loved when I was younger and only used/knew of make up sold in Boots, I remember being obsessed with their Thick and Fast mascara when I was about 14- and since joining the beauty blogging world, I've heard so many great things about Soap & Glory's beauty range.
So I did it...for the first time in years I bought make up that didn't cost a bomb, in fact, I got all of this for around £18- I'd usually pay that for a single eyeshadow!

The item I was most excited about was the newly released 'One Heck Of A Blot Primer,' I've read so much hype about this, and if Lily Pebbles says its good, it can't be that bad. Priced at £10.00, I didn't think this would be that great, or even great on my skin, but first of all, I was really pleased by the packaging, I love the fact it arrived boxed like high end products, the tube feels more expensive than it is.
I hate to admit it, but I LOVE this stuff, it's better than so many high end primers I've tried. it instantly smoothed my skin upon application, leaving it feeling really silky and flawless ready for any foundation. More importantly, it does what it says on the tin and it blurs out pores, which is something I really really like in a primer. I'm also having a dry skin phase because of the Winter, and this hasn't caused me problems at all, it didn't dry me up or make my foundation look caked, in-fact it looks as good as it does with my £52.00 Hourglass primer, as much as that hurts to say. Very very very impressed, this may easily be one of my new favourite bases. What a statement.

The Supercat liner was something I swore by all those years ago, and I wanted to see if it was still as good as it used to be, and if it was any match for my Stila or Tarte liners.
Again, I really like this, it's so easy to apply and creates the skinny flick I like perfectly, most importantly it's jet black and stays that way.

Last but not least, Brow Archery, another product I've read a lot about, I love my Anastasia Brow Wiz like a child and it's become an essential in my stash, but if I can get it for half the price that's okay with me. I'll start by saying it's not quite as good as Brow Wiz, but it's still not bad.
There was only 2 shades to choose from, so obviously I got the darkest, the brush is identical to the one on ABH Brow Wiz but the pencil isn't as pigmented or easy to use- I also find the Brow Wiz good to blend out for a 'gradient' finish, with Brow Archery it just seemed to wipe away.

Over all, I'm really impressed and I plan on trying more Soap & Glory products.
