Soap & Glory is without a doubt one of my favourite drugstore brands. I’m not a huge fan of their skincare, some of their body bits have a permanent place in my bathroom but mainly it’s their makeup that continues to blow me away. 

I’ve recently been having an affair with their powders and they not only have cute names, packaging and beautiful embossing but they also do an amazing job! 

I really think everyone needs a translucent mattifying powder in their collection. Even if you don’t have oily skin (mine is quite dry), I find using a small amount of this on my t-zone really helps my makeup stay and any unwanted shine disappear. I don’t want any extra coverage from my powder so translucent is perfect for me and this one is really smooth and gives you the softest skin.

I’m quite loyal to my NARS Laguna bronzer so I don’t have many bronzers in my collection and I usually find they look very orange on me. The Solar Powder is a two-toned bronzer, one lighter and one darker so you can either mix them together for an all over glow or use the darker shade to contour and the lighter shade for a subtle bronze. I don’t find this looks orange on me at all and for days when I want a less intense bronzer I opt for this one. 

Luminizing Radiance Face Powder? Well that sounds right up my street! This is a peachy, shimmery powder that works really nicely just over blusher, slightly further up the cheekbones. There’s no a huge amount of colour payoff, you get more of the shimmery affect, which is why I like to pair it with a nice peach blush. 

These have all earned their place in my daily makeup stash and I’m loving them so far. Have you ever tried a Soap & Glory powder?

  3. If they’re one of your favourite makeup drugstore brands why have you only mentioned one or two products before?

    I love Glow All Out – perfect colour pay off for pale girls like me!

  5. I’ve not tried many soap and glory make up products but i’ve heard amazing things about their One Heck of a Blot powder lately so i’ll be sure to pick it up next time i’m trawling boots! Thank you!

    I’ve only tried out one S&G make-up product and I wasn’t wow-ed, the concealer. I’ll have to give one of these a try perhaps!

    I’ve never tried soap and glory makeup, but I think I’m going to have to – the “one heck of a blot” and the “Glow All Out” look really good!

    I’ve never tried any makeup from soap and glory but if you’re giving your stamp approval I think I’ll go have a look and start with that translucent powder!

  9. Holl JC says:

    These all sound great! Especially ‘One Heck of a blot’ xxx

    I haven’t tried any Soap & Glory powders, but maybe I need to! The One Heck of a Blot powder definitely sounds like something that would suit my oily skin, maybe I’ll have to go and pick it up.

    I’ve never really tried any makeup from Soap&Glory. I find myself always running back to their skincare items however I think I better have a snoop around their makeup next time!



  13. Katrina says:

    Soap n glory have the cutest products packaging wise. I’ve tried their skin and bath products but not their makeupmcause we dont have it here 🙁 hope i could try their translucent powder

  14. Literally your blog is so so good! I honestly read it everyday because you have the perfect mixture of photography and writing (which you also do brilliantly) keep it up!!! Xxx

  15. Kirsty says:

    The sopa and glory make up stand is normally one I give nothing but a glance… but you know what I might just have to give it a try! I’m normally drawn in by clean and simple packaging (Nars, Mac etc) so have never devled further into the product!

    love the sound of the luminising powder!

  16. Soap & Glory have started coming out with some great makeup items, these sound great 🙂 ♥


  17. I love highlighters.


  18. Amy says:

    I love soap and glory make up products. My favourite is their lipstick in pom pom. It’s one of the few matte lipsticks I’ve found that isn’t drying on the lips at all, unlike the MAC ones for me

  19. I have never used a translucent powder but have always wanted to so I might just pick up ‘One heck of a blot’

    Great Post


  20. TheBeautyNut says:

    I’m a huge fan of soap and glory make up products and especially love the ‘Love at First Blush’ blusher, however I feel like they are slightly overpriced for a ‘drugstore’ brand, still I’d love to try out these!


  21. Adrienne says:

    I love their Glow All Out Powder, which I’ve recently added to my makeup routine. I actually did a review about it a few days ago and it’s not left my face since. It just adds a little extra brightness without going overboard!

    I haven’t come across any powders yet but recently I’ve been feeling the urge to splash out on soap and glory, so this is definitely tempting! Especially the solar powder as I love adding bronzers to my tiny collection!


  31. They look gorgeous. Will have to go on the hunt for these powders soon 😀

  33. Elissa says:

    I used to use Solar Powder ages ago (I think it came in a Christmas gift set before they even brought their make-up line out). This has made me want to dig it out again, I used to love it! x


  34. Smaz says:

    I haven’t tried S&G powders but I cannot live without their ‘smoulder kohl’. Will def give either the translucent or highlighter a try! x

    I really like the look of that bronzer. Think I might pick that up next time I’m in Boots. I haven’t tried any of their make up range yet, so it’s long overdue!
