Best of the Sales: Soap and Glory Make Up Haul

Soap and Glory is a well renowned favourite with beauty bloggers and beauty savvy ladies alike, but until a few months back, I didn't realise that they made make up as well as toiletries. Where have I been?

They had some fantastic sets available in Boots this Christmas, and eager to try them, I was fortunate enough to snap up a few sets in the sales with some Christmas money. When I saw them in store on Christmas Eve, they were 3 for 2, but I bought them online the same day where they were all half price.


I couldn't choose between the sets available, and ended up buying all four. Oops.




First up is one of my favourites: the Crazy Sexy Khol set which is a tin containing five waterproof khol eye liners in a range of colours (Super Black, Cocoa Bean, Aquabat, Blue My Mind, and Grapevine), and three complimenting eyeshadows (Aubersheen, Smokin', and Dandy Plum). I'm already in love with the khols, but haven't tried the eyeshadows yet and I'm itching to give them a try! It was originally £18.00 but on sale for just £9.




The Eyes Box is a set which I shall be putting away in the present stash, which is why I've left the plastic on in the photos. It's contains a full size Thick and Fast Super Volume Mascara; a Smoulder Kohl Waterproof Eye Liner in Superblack; six Lid Stuff eyeshadows in Vanilla, Wild Blue, Smokin', Minky, Dandy Plum, and Black Gold; plus a mirror and a double-ended eyeshadow brush. It's a great set of eye essentials that could be used for a variety of neutral, smokey, and colourful looks and only cost me £8.00 instead of the RRP of £16.00. I would love to keep it for myself, but I know somebody who's going to appreciate it more.




Powder Trip is a beautiful set of three dust on pressed powders to bronze, brighten and luminize the face, and I can't wait to try them out. Don't they look gorgeous? The set includes a multi-shade powder bronzer in Solar Powder; a multi-shimmer blushing powder in Love at First Blush; and a luminizing face powder in Glow All Out. The set also includes a blusher brush and a large mirror. It was on sale for £10.00, and was originally £20.00- obviously a fantastic and very tempting bargain!




Be Your Own Gloss is, as you can see, a set of five 'Sexy Mother Pucker' lip plumping glosses. The name makes me chuckle, is that sad? Included are shades: Punch Bowl, Half Naked, Clear, Candy Gloss, and Yummy Plum. I've yet to give them a test drive, but they look lovely. The set originally retailed for £14, but was on sale for £7. I'm afraid this one is also sold out online, but there is a new set of 3 lip glosses called Super Colour Sexy Mother Pucker which is available full price, which could be a lovely substitute.

I'm sorry that most of the sets are now sold out online (they went so fast), but you might still be able to find them in store, so it could be worth paying a visit to your local Boots. If you're unlucky, Boots sell most of the items featured in these sets singularly on their website, and no doubt in store, too. You can browse the selection available online from here.

I'll be sure to review each of these sets once I've tried everything out and can give you honest reviews. 

Did you get your hands on any of these Soap and Glory make up sets this Christmas or in the sales? 

If you've tried Soap and Glory make up, tell me what you think! Is there a particular make up item you love best?

  1. my eldest loves the 'sexy mother pucker' it definitely works, she already has quite full lips but there is an extra pout with that - I am officially ancient now haha, I don't get these beauties for gifts anymore, but that's the benefit of having 3 daughters, I get to 'borrow' their stuff!! x x x

    1. They work really well. I have quite small lips, but I did see a difference and my lips tingled. You're not ancient, and you'll have to start dropping hints for some next Christmas! It is handy when there are other ladies in the family you can borrow stuff off xx
