The other day I was in Boots and saw that in place of the Prestige stand there was a new range of Soap & Glory cosmetics. I swatched a few things on my hand but the one thing that stood out to me was the Glow All Out Luminizing Radiance Face Powder. I'm a bit obsessed with illuminators and when I tried it on my hand it looked like a beautiful iridescent pink highlighter. So I bought it and I have to say I'm a little disappointed.
First of all the outer packaging looks really great. Flashy, gold, cute, retro, typical of the Soap & Glory aesthetic. But once you open it up the actual product is in a fairly non-glamourous cardboard compact. It feels fairly cheap in your hand although it is light to carry about & does have a mirror which is always a bonus. The embossed logo on the powder is a nice touch. The back of the product tells you to 'Sweep a brush lightly across powder surface, then dust lightly onto your face, neck & shoulders'. Once I swatched it on my arm at home it became apparent that it wasn't going to work as a highlighter on me. So I got out a blush brush and applied it as a normal blusher. The fallout in the compact is really bad so I'm not expecting it to last a very long time. However once applied as a blush it actually looks quite nice. It gives me a really natural peachy glow. I think I'm just too pale for this product. I imagine that on anyone darker than me (which is probably 90% of the world) this would work really well as a way of adding a glow to your face & body. But for me this is a nice way of adding a healthy glow to my otherwise vampiric pallor.
