Sales haul: Soap and Glory Perfect Ten



Hello everyone, I hope your January is being good to you! I have the titanic soundtrack playing in my ears, while I'm working on a new little series of posts. These are dedicated to taking a
 closer look at beauty products I found in the January sales, featuring ones I've always wanted to try after reading so many rave reviews, receiving recommendations on them or discovering them through browsing on the web. I'm really excited to try them all out so will be giving my honest opinion on each of them as I go along. Starting with this baby here...

Perhaps the king of my collection, the Soap and Glory 'Perfect Ten' palette, is half price at the moment in selected Boots stores, reduced to £8 from £16! The shades are angelic, ranging from pink-nudes to all essential rose-golds, with beautiful mattes and shimmers and they all make an excellent base for eye makeup. I nearly called my post 'Moon Mist and Cream Soda' because they are such gorgeous shades, with just the right amount of shimmer for an everyday look, yet can be taken up a notch with the use of a skilled hand (mine is not) for a dramatic eye.

This is such a romantic palette with all its nude, neutral and skin-like shades. The only fault for me is that they are not as highly pigmented as other palettes and nowhere near as with cream formation eyeshadows, even with the highly anticipated 'Smoulder'. They do intensify when dampened but not enough to match my beloved Color Tattoo in pigmentation and longevity. That said, the matte shades really stand out to me, are of particularly nice quality, and all of them are impressively multi purpose and good in terms of fallout.
From left to right, 1. Moon Mist, 2. Minky, 3. Nudecomer, 4. Copper, 5. Toasty,

6. Damsel, 7. Cream Soda, 8. Choccy, 9. Plumtious, 10. Smoulder
The formula picks up on your fingers very easily, as proved by the slightly messy picture above! But it does not crumble easily. It does not bother me: as much as I love the unctuous feeling of an untouched palette, I know I'm not alone in appreciating a well loved, worn-looking palette even more hehe. It's like compacted fairy dust and the case and packaging are beautiful with a pop art feel, much like the rest of Soap and Glory products. I prefer to use my fingers rather than the little brush because it is so small! I need little fairy eyelids to match. Would I repurchase? Yes for the sale price but I'm not sure I would pay the full £16 for this palette.

Have you tried Soap and Glory products? Do you prefer matte or shimmer shades?

  6. I've only tried a few soap and glory products but I do want to try out more and I saw this in the Christmas section. I loved the look of the colours as I'm a neutral kind of girl. The two colours Copper and Minky look like they'd be my favourite

    1. Hi Leanne, thank you! I am the same, I would love to give more a try :D I went for it as I saw it in the sales and thought 'why not', they are my favourite kind of colours too! :D ♡

  7. The sales are always so exciting! I'd never heard about this palette, but all the shades are super wearable and really nice. We can see from your swatches that the lightest shades are not that pigmented - it's good you waited for the sales to pick it up then! It's a beautiful palette nonetheless, and you'll be able to create pretty looks with it!

  14. Personally I love shimmer shades and I've always loved soap and glory products but for some reason have never tried their make up range. I think I'd definitely like to try this palette though even if the pigmentation isn't perfect :)

  21. I've been after a nice eyeshadow palette with versatile colours for everyday, but didn't want to fork out for the Naked palette! This seems like a much more affordable option though, thanks for the heads up!

  29. Nice shades! It would have been good to see a few mattes in there but a great sale pick. I think Minky looks like a shade I would love to try.
