I'm a huge fan of Soap and Glory's bath products but had no idea that they had a make-up range until quite recently. I haven't heard an awful lot about the products so couldn't resist purchasing last month's Elle for the free S&G mascara. I'm not sure how I feel about the brand's foray into make-up. Surely there are already enough brands out there and make-up is a pretty different animal to bath products...isn't there a case for sticking to what you know?
The make-up is priced around the same as the more expensive "drugstore" brands (I cannot bring myself to say the word "drugstore" out loud but I can't think of anything better for blog purposes) and the mascara retails at £10.
My first reaction was "EUGH". I hate huge mascara brushes. I really wanted to dislike this mascara but at least the magazine entertained me for a few hours so I didn't feel too bad about it all. When I eventually got round to trying the mascara, I was pleasantly surprised. Although the brush is huge, it was really easy to control and only took a few coatings for my lashes to look nice and thick. The formula is actually quite dry which I wasn't expecting either. Despite this, my lashes ended up looking soft and fluttery and the big brush surprisingly didn't deposit blobs of mascara all around my eye area. Twelve hours later the mascara was holding up well, no flaking or smudging (although, really, it's 2012, no mascara should EVER smudge by now).
Have you tried this mascara? Or any other S&G make-up?
