I’m utterly useless when it comes to resisting new Soap&Glory products. These little beauties were released over two months ago now ( I think?) but then they got wrapped up for Christmas and I almost forgot about them. They’re now back in my life and my makeup bag, though, so it seemed like a good time to get back into the swing of actually reviewing things on my blog, rather than just throwing together apprehensive wishlist posts (which you can read here, if that sold it for you).
Soap&Glory Sexy Mother Blusher Sticks in Onamatopeacha, Berry Jamm and Pinker Belle
Pinker Belle, Berry Jamm and Onomatopeacha
These blush sticks might be the cutest things currently in my collection. I think that’s down to the names to be honest (apart from Onomatopeacha, which shall henceforth be referred to as Peach, because bloody hell I’m not typing that again). They’re a creamy enough formula to blend easily, but not so soft that they get all melty in the tube- I’ve been applying them with a Real Techniques Contour Brush which works perfectly, because you can really build up the colour intensity or just leave it quite soft and natural. They’re a cream to powder formula and they wear kind of like a stain, so on bare skin they’re going to stick around for a while, but otherwise they’ll just last for as long as your foundation does. For me, without powdering or using a primer, thats about eight hours, but I reckon if you have drier skin you could easily push that a bit.
I think my favourite shade would have to be Pinker Belle- it looks so pretty and quite natural when it’s applied very lightly which I’m all about, blush-wise. The Peach shade is quite warm, but still wearable even on my (very pale, quite cool toned) skin and Berry Jamm is perfect with very natural eye and lip looks. Pretty excellent all round, I’d say. The Soap&Glory Sexy Mother Blushers are available at Boots for £9 each, and are currently buy one get one half price.
