New makeup bits from Soap & Glory

I am not gonna lie, I am becoming more and more obsessed with Soap & Glory! From their incredible bath and body products to cult makeup staples, I can't get enough! They released these stunning palettes and blushers a while ago and I think they would be perfect as stocking fillers for Christmas!

Let's start with the Made You Blush Velvety Smooth Cheek Colours*(£9.00). I adore the packaging, classic Soap & Glory - black, sleek and sturdy with a bit of quirkiness added for good measure. There is a mirror inside too and a brush hidden within the base. Perfect

The three shades are simply stunning. We have Cheeky Pink, Rosy Cheek and Twinkle Rose and they are all lovely. The last one reminds me of Nars Orgasm, as it's got the same tone and beautiful rose gold shimmer. The texture is nice and velvety and the pigmentation is insanely good, which means that you have to tap the excess of your brush and apply it lightly.

Left to right: Rosy Cheek, Cheeky Pink and Twinkle Rose.

Now onto the stunning palettes! Oh, gimme all the neutrals! Let's start with the top one - Kicking Into Neutral*(£13.00). A great alternative to UD Naked Palettes, full of shimmery and matte browns and some beige and golden tones. 

And for the matte lovers, we have The Ultimatte Collection*(£13.00). Clever name S&G, clever name! Bursting with a gorgeous selection of matte shadows, this palette is ideal for daytime. I like the fact that it includes loads of lighter shades, as they always get used up first in all my palettes and you usually only get 2.

The texture of the shadows is lovely, easy to apply, blendable and with very minimal fallout. Nicely pigmented too and long lasting. Everything I look for in a palette. You get a double ended brush and a mirror inside too, which is always a bonus.

And for the winged liner loving gals - the Supercat Skinny Easy Precision Black Ink Liner*(£6.50). I actually didn't realise this was the skinny version, till my Supercat Liner obsessed friend told me I gave her a skinny one, instead of the regular Supercat, oooops :) Anyway... it is ultra black, features a fine nib and you can draw a very precise line with it. I am still a Bourjois Liner Pinceau gal, but I have been enjoying this felt tip too lately.

Well done Soap & Glory, you've done it again - so many amazing and affordable products!

Available from Boots and Superdrug.
