As Boots seems to be my second home, its no surprise that I've made a few discoveries in the past few weeks. Soap & Glory isn't a brand I've purchased many cosmetics from. In fact I've only used their eye primer but I have a feeling thats about to change...
I spotted their new blusher and decided to give it a go as its not a product I've heard anything about. Usually, you hear about new products weeks they go on sale but with this one, nada!
There are three shades of Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Blusher available. I went with Pinker Belle - a bright medium coral pink. These retail for £9 but are currently on offer for buy one get one half price. These blushes are in chubby pencil form - I'm guessing this is going to be a trend, what with lip and eyeshadow pencil being incredibly popular right now.
The packaging is pretty much basic but the blush is a twist up pencil so its very easy to use.
The blush itself is extremely creamy and highly pigmented. I was a bit unsure how to apply at first but its actually really easy. I apply straight from the tube to my cheeks and blend in with a sigma buffing brush.
It blends beautifully, leaving a natural flush of colour. Its not completely matte but not dewy either. I'd compare it to a cheek stain once its blended in.
I've been using this blush every day since I purchased it and I'm pretty much obsessed - can you be obsessed with a blusher?!
I love that it doesn't feel greasy, it lasts all day (even on my oily skin) and is easy to remove. Its the perfect blush stick. Having never used this type of blush before, I'm completely converted. The swatch is applied heavier than I would normally wear but with these you can use less or more depending on your skin tone. It looks so natural so you don't really need to worry too much about application. I would 100% recommend these. I'm fairly certain I will be buying the other two shades - if you're after a treat next time you're in boots than this is the one!
