Soap and Glory Thick and Fast

So ladies as I’m sure you’re all aware this months Elle magazine comes with a free full size soap and glory mascara from there recently released make up range. I’ve been wanting to try out pieces from the make up range so when I saw this in the supermarket I had to pick up. Plus £3.90 for a full size mascara, BARGAIN.

First impressions, I love the packaging. Simple and pink, attracts me. Second thing you notice is the size of the brush, it’s huge. The photos I don’t think so how big it is. Third for me i liked is that it’s an actual brush, I now prefer these to the plastic comb type applicators.

On application I did find it didn’t give quite the volume I’m used too. I love big thick lashes. I did like that on applying to your lashes loads didn’t come off the brush even though it’s a brand new product. I’ve been using this for a few days now and I do like it. For me though it won’t beat my colossal volume. I find it is better for casual everyday make up as it does give good volume to lashes but a bit more naturally.

Not a great shot, sorry hard to find the light. I definitely think this is a mascara worth purchasing with Elle magazine but I’m not sure I would pay £10 for it, that’s just as I’m addicted to my mascara and have always gone back to it for 3 years now.

    I only ever buy waterproof mascaras which is pretty much the only reason I didn't buy Elle just for the mascara, I do love Soap and Glory products though. I always use Rimmel Volumise mascara cos I haven;t really found a waterproof that can beat that yet!Charlotte

    I got my hands on this today and I can't wait to use it. When I had a look at it I wasn't 100% sure on the brush, always good when you get it as a freebie and don't pay the full price :)Charlee

      Definitely love a good freebie. I did really like the brush. I did find its a little hard to get on your lashes, but I didn't mind this as I like doing lots of thin coats. Hope you like it xx
