Soap and Glory – Glow All Out

It’s dark and grey, and frankly I want some warmth and glow in my life.  I bet you do too, yes?

Well, I have found the answer.  I say that, but let’s be honest here – I’m not promising sunshine, Disney tweety-birds or 30 degrees heat.  I am promising a nice healthy glow though. 

You know, that ‘oh look, I’ve slept for EIGHT SOLID HOURS‘ glow.  Or that ‘aren’t I good, I’ve been at the gym every other day this week, and fit in a long healthy walk every day in between‘ glow.  Or even ‘I subside only on a diet of raw, healthy vegetables, I don’t drink, smoke, get stressed, and basically am a serene goddess‘ glow.

Yeah, that.

*drum roll please*  Have a look at Soap and Glory’s Glow All Out:

Soap and Glory’s Glow All Out face powder. Pearly perfection?




TA-DAH!!  

What was that?  It’s only a pink powder did you say?  Well, yes, you’re right.
Am I being over excited about this? 

NO.

Oooh, glowy goodness



Seriously. On my pale, white (not usually that glowing without help) skin – this powder imparts such a lovely ethereal glow.  I use a small, teeny-tiny amount on my Real Techniques Blusher Brush -just on the very tip – and swirl it on the top of my cheek bones and blendy-blend-blend. Hey presto. Healthy face.
If I’m feeling the need, I’ll also take it to the temples and slightly across the jawline. I know it’s at odds with the usual ‘contour here, here and here’ line, but for me, it works.

Y’know what I like about S&G? Their cute photos. Yes, I’m a sucker. It makes me buy stuff. Sorry, bank account.



I’ve been wearing this most days lately.  I think, for the money, it can’t be beaten. It’s also much easier to work with and much less ‘wow, do you know I’m wearing highlighter – LOOK at my shimmer!‘ than Benefit’s High Beam.

Sorry if you’re a High Beam disciple. I know how you feel. I was between 1999 and 2010. I understand. I know, I know, It’s Benefit. They’re cool and whathaveyou.  But it is a bit much sometimes. Time to temper it down a bit. Use it at night, that’ll do. Trust me, I’m old-ish.

My favourite daytime look to use it with, if you need some inspiration, is this:

Base:  Kevyn Aucoin – Sensual Skin Primer + Armani – Maestro Foundation
Colour: Stila – All You Need Is Love (on apples of cheeks) + Glow All Out (highlight)
Eyes:  Stila Primer (base) + Urban Decay Sin (base shadow) + MAC – Satin Taupe (outer corner and lashline to 3/4 of way across) + MAC Pencil in Raven (upper lashline, this is a ‘pretty’ look so I don’t do waterline or lower lash line here).
Mascara: Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes (top and bottom lashes)
Lips: Nars Chihauhua gloss
Powder: Illamasqua translucent loose powder (only a very light dusting on t-zone)

No filling in brows, no heavy lashes or liner – just light, simple and pretty in pink.

I bought my Glow All Out from Boots for £11.00, but it was part of a 3 for 2 offer, where I bought other lovely things from Essie and Revlon at the same time.

Let me know what you think – do you like this? Want it? Not fussed?
If you own it already, leave your favourite makeup look below, I’m all up for trying new ones out!

    Thanks guys! So lovely of you to stop by, and I'm pleased to get your link again so I can find you direct.
    I reckon you'd love this powder. I'm a fussy so & so when it comes to makeup, so I hope you agree!

    Lovely review! I actually purchased this very recently myself and I got mine from Boots during their 3 for 2 offer as well. I haven't actually got around to trying it yet as I want to photograph it in all it's pristine glory for my blog before I use it but it sounds every bit as good as I'm hoping it should be! I can't wait to see what it's like myself now! xx

    Gotta love a bargain! 😉
    The packaging looks great…although it is sort of a papery texture, which is the only thing that stops it being completely and utterly comparable to something more high end.
    Still…works like a dream!!! Xx

    Hanna, you'll never believe that I used it 4 times before I took those photos 😉 so maybe you can get away with a sneaky swirl or two before you take them!!
    Hope you love it as much as I do!

    What else did you get on the 3 for 2 (I'm so nosey!!).

    Thanks for following the blog too 😉 xx
