Soap & Glory Summer Saviours: the Must-Have Powders

31 May 2015

Upon first use of these beautiful Soap & Glory powders, they became staples in my make-up bag, so you could say that it really was love at first blush (pardon the pun). The shimmery formulation of both blush and the lighter shade of the bronzer, allow the powders to inject the right amount of radiance to any complexion - making them perfect for faking or enhancing a summer glow. So here's a breakdown of my drugstore summer saviours...

Consisting of the shades 'Pink, Pop and Pearl', the packaging of Love at First Blush is a perfect mix of pink to make the boys wink. Soap & Glory describe this product as a "rosy-radiance shimmer powder" and due to this I see it as a 2 in 1 blusher and highlighter, adding a gorgeous rosy glow to the cheeks with the help of the "sheer-burst luminospheres". To apply this I use my trusty RealTechniques Setting Brush which does its job aptly, adding a blushing shimmer to the apples of the cheeks and along the tops of my cheekbones. The strong pigmentation means that only a light application is needed to add subtle definition and radiance to the face. 

If you are an avid reader of beauty blogs like myself, I'm sure you will have come across Solar Powder a few times before. But there is good reason for this, as it is by far one of the best bronzers I have tried, hence why it looks so worn and battered as many of my well-loved products do! It is quite creamy in its consistency which makes sure that the bronzer is long-lasting. With two shades to chose from, it is easy to build up a golden colour to your pleasing. When applying this, I reach for my RealTechniques Contour Brush and swirl the brush around the palette, before sweeping the powder in a figure of 3 - along the jawline, under the cheekbones and into the temples. I find that this bronzer, with the highlighting blusher, works well to give a natural contoured look - adding definition to the sides of my rounded face. 

What is your favourite Soap and Glory product? Have you tried any of these perfect powders?

  1. I absolutely adore Love at First Blush! It's so easy to apply but gives the perfect blush ;) I've not tried the Solar Powder so definitely going to give that a go after reading your review about it! X

    1. Ah I'm so glad I'm not the only one that thinks that about the blush - because I've heard so much about the bronzer but not the blusher itself! :) x

  2. I was a bit hesitant about both of these but after reading a few reviews I actually wanna give these a go
