Recently Soap & Glory branched out into cosmetics and released a line of products, hoping to continue their success in a new area of the beauty industry. Curious, I dropped into Boots a few weeks ago to peruse their counter, which is very eye catching, and choose a few products to try out. I settled on the Smoulder Kohl SuperBlack pencil £5.00 (review to come), and the Kick Ass Concealer in Medium, priced at £10.00.
The cardboard packaging is very sweet and appealing and the actual product packaging isn't bad either, everything inside feels secure, the consumer is told what each product is for and it's compact.
This concealer has three steps to it.
Step 1 - Under eye brightening concealer. 2.96g
Step 1 is quite a neutral shade, with a slightly yellow undertone. The consistency is almost mousse like and much more creamy than I expected which made it easy to blend.
Step 2 - Superwear face concealer. 2.9g
Step 2 has a peach undertone and while still creamy, it's not as soft as step 1 making it easier to pat on to problem areas.
Step 3 - Concealer sealing powder. 2.5g
Step 3 is a white, finely milled translucent powder for setting the concealers, it also comes with a small powder puff for on the go application.
I really liked the idea of everything you need for concealing in one, compact product and if I'm on the go I'll definitely keep this popped into my handbag for touch ups. Other than that I probably wont get much use out of either of the concealers because although easy to blend, I didn't find they properly set so my mascara transferred underneath my eyes a lot. I also found that the under eye concealer moved about quite a bit, settled into fine lines - even with the powder, and looked really cakey. Ick!
Would I repuchase?
No, but I did find that the powder worked really well with the Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer so I'll use it until that runs out.
