Soap & Glory Thick & Fast™ Super Volume Mascara Boots £10
Among my hamper of goodies I received in my Yule Monty gift set for Christmas was this mascara. Soap & Glory are a brand I usually go to for body skincare and bathing products, not cosmetics. Their pretty recent on the cosmetics scent but have quickly built up a positive reputation for themselves and their products have become staples in many people's collections. Mascaras are probably my favourite piece of make-up and therefore I love to try anything new.
Soap & Glory claim that 'this super volume mascara creates amazingly, longer, fuller, fabulous lashes, feathering Superfill™ false lash fillers, shine amplifiers and NoFlake24 technology'. I'll start with the brush. The wand itself if super big and has the usual hair bristles, usually my least favourite type of mascara wands. I did find it quite messy to work with at first and it does get the odd bit of product on your eyelid which is not attractive. Can also get a little messy on the lower lashes due to the size of the brush. However, it is super quick and easy to swoop onto lashes, it coats the lashes nicely although the formula itself is quite wet and thin. It seperates the lashes well and applies evenly. I must add the formula is super black, which I absolutely love from a mascara.
As you can see, two coats is enough for day time wear just to give the lashes a little lift, length and volume. It isn't flaky throughout the day and doesn't smudge (even on the bottom lashes) either which is perfect for long days where make-up maintenance is the last thing on your mind.
This is a great drugstore mascara and although not the cheapest of picks, it's fairly budget friendly. I love using this mascara for in the daytime although it can be a little messy, nothing a cotton bud and some eye make-up remover won't quickly fix. I will probably repurchase when I've ran out or try one of the other variations of this mascara.
