Soap and Glory Solar Powder | Review

Hey everyone,

So a few weeks back I was perusing the isles of Boots and decided to check out the Soap & Glory stand. 
I was in need of a new bronzer so I thought I'd give Solar Powder a whirl. First off, don't let the pink shimmer turn you off, this disappears after the first use. Solar Powder is a bronzing duo that comes with a dark bronze matte shade and a lighter brown with a hint of shimmer. I apply this by mixing both colours together to give me a perfect sun-kissed look. 

This bronzer isn't too orange for me, so great for us paler ladies. I find it doesn't look too muddy on me either which is always a bonus!
The packaging isn't the best, it's a hard cardboard with a magnetic closing, which I find opens easily in my makeup bag. I love how the little compact has a mirror, so it's great for on-the-go touch ups.

Solar Powder retails for €15, which is quite a bit for a drugstore product, but it's definitely one of the best I've tried, two thumbs up from me! 

You can find Soap & Glory in Boots stores or on the Boots website.

Have you tried any Soap & Glory makeup?

Kevyn Aucoin Creamy Glow Blush in Liquidfuchsia

Hey lovelies,

Since venturing into the world of Kevyn Aucoin Creamy Glow blushes with Tansoleil, I have fallen head over heels and can't seem to get enough of them. 
So while I was in London recently I picked up Liquidfuchsia, a beautiful err..fuchsia! This colour would be perfect for an extra pop of colour on fairer skintones.

These blushes apply quite sheer, but can be easily built up. I apply these with my fingers and then blend it out with my Real Techniques Stippling brush. They're super easy to apply and just melt into the skin.

The little compact also boasts a full size mirror for on-the-go touch ups. This can also double up as a lip product if needs be.

These blushes are available from Space NK stores and retail for £21.

Have you tried Liquidfuchsia?
