After watching Lucy and Lydia’s Soap and Glory haul video we both had a lot of products on our wish lists. Soap and Glory have launched quite a lot of new products recently and they all look amazing, so we made a trip to boots to stock up and ended up going a little overboard! Boots currently have a 3 for 2 offer on Soap and Glory products, so if you have a wish list full, like us, now is the time to go!

Antonia - The Sexy Mother Pucker Matte Lip sticks are one of the new arrivals and they have six of amazing colours to choose from. I got four of them (although I’m tempted to go back and get the other two!) in Pretty Muted, Fire Cracker, Berry-Much and Chocoberry (left to right above). They are only £3.50, which I think is a really great price! They have a really nice matte finish (as the name would suggest) but they don’t feel dry on the lips, as so many matte lipsticks do, they almost have a balm like texture. The colours are really pretty and incredibly bright! My favourite is definitely Fire Cracker, it’s so bright its almost neon and I love it!
Imogen - I chose to try Firecracker and Chocoberry. They are super pigmented and I think that these are both beautiful colours. Firecracker will look amazing in the summer!

Imogen - Also in the new arrivals are the new four Kick Ass concealers. There are four different types. We both have the Just Bright concealer, which brightens tired skin and is pink to counteract the dark green/blue under eye circles, and then I have the All is Calm concealer which is to mask redness. The other two are Fake Awake for dark circles and Super-Blur Eraser to blur away imperfections. I think I’m going to have to go back and buy the last two as well but for now I’ll just stick to the first two! The Just Bright concealer does really brighten up your under eyes but not as much as I sometimes need! I think that both the concealers I have blend pretty well and leave the skin with a smooth finish but, as recommended by Soap and Glory, you do need to use them underneath another concealer or foundation otherwise you could end up looking a little green (or pink).
As I don’t really ever wear a foundation, on top of these I have been using the Kick Ass Blur and Brighten in the shade light, which is a concealer crayon. I really love this concealer and think that it’s the best one I have used for years! It’s really super smooth and creamy and easily covers any blemishes and dark circles. I couldn’t recommend this more to be honest, I love it and it’s amazing!
Antonia - I totally agree with what Imogen said about the concealer! It’s really good! It’s incredibly brightening and does a really good job at hiding any redness and any blemishes on the skin.
I also got the pink Just Bright concealer. I agree with Imogen’s comments in that it is very brightening and works well to combat the dark areas under the eyes but I think it takes quite a lot of blending! Paired with the Kick Ass Concealer Crayon it makes for a really bright under-eye!

Antonia – I was very excited to try the One Heck of a Blot Foundation, it has a matte finish, which I really like as I have quite oily skin around my T-zone. I’ve only used it a couple of times so far but on first impressions I quite like it. It claims to control shine for 12 hours and give a full-coverage, flawless finish but personally I wouldn’t say it gives a particularly full coverage, perhaps if I spent a little more time to build it up it would, but I actually don’t mind that at all. I’m really happy with the coverage it does give me.
I also got the One Heck of a Blot Mattifying Powder to help combat my oily skin. It’s translucent which I really like, I’m too lazy to go out and find a powder that actually matches my skin tone so this is great for me. It does look really matte and perfect at first but I find that even on top of the matte foundation it doesn’t last 12 hours (although I haven’t timed it so I can’t say how long I does last). Maybe it’s just that my skin is particularly oily but I do end up needing to top up throughout the day. This doesn’t stop me from loving this product though!
Another of the new releases is the Highlight and Sculpt Cheek Sticks there are three in the collection, a highlighter, a bronzer and a blusher. They are a creamy textured stick that you can apply straight onto your cheeks and blend in with your fingers, super easy!  I decided to try the blusher ‘Love at First Blush’ and I really like it. It’s really shimmery so it kind of works as a highlighter as well as a blush and it’s really easy to blend in. It gives a really nice healthy glow and I would definitely recommend it!
Imogen - I picked up the highlighter Glow All Out cheek stick. It’s a lovely champagne colour highlight, which is pretty neutral and perfect for a subtle touch of glow in a hurry. The swatch above doesn't fully do the shine of the highlight justice.

Antonia – Finally, I wanted try the Archery Brow Putty, I have heard great things about the Brow Archery products and thought it was about time that I tried one. I can confirm that I am not disappointed! It has a screw off pot at one end, containing the product and a small brush at the other. It’s really easy to use and stays put all day! It comes in three different colours; I chose ‘Brownie Points’ which is a medium brown. The only concern I have is that I could have taken the darker colour, so I might try that next time!

We are in love with all of our products and will probably be back buying more of the different shades very soon!
We hope you enjoyed this post and that it gives you the urge to give some a try too!
