Soap & Glory Kick Ass Concealer Review

I've always been intrigued by Soap & Glory makeup and when I recently got the chance to get to a stand I just knew I had to pick up the Soap & Glory Kick Ass Concealer (€13.00) in light. 2015 is the year I will be on the hunt for my holy grail concealer, so read on to see if I found it!


First off the packaging is great. It's fun, compact and sturdy and has a little mirror, so overall it's perfect for throwing in your handbag or makeup bag.


You will find two compartments, the bottom contains your cream concealers, one for under eyes to brighten the area up and the second concealer to cover blemishes. You will also find your mirror in this compartment. The second compartment holds your weightless transparent powder, which also hold a little puff.



The undereye concealer is brightening and once warmed in the hand, blended on beautifully, but after about a half hour I found that it creased and exaggerated my lines in that area. I'm also wear glasses and found that the concealer moved around the outer part of the bridge of the glasses so ended up having to wash them. The second concealer has great coverage for blemishes but found that it really dried out the area where it was placed and the colour was a little off for my skin tone. What I really loved from this compact was the sealing powder and I've been dipping my brush into it trying to use it all over my face to set my makeup. I believe the powder is Soap & Glory's One Heck of a Blot mattifying powder so need to pick myself up the full size of that soon.


Overall I was disappointed with this especially as I know it is loved by so many but for me and my skin it just didn't work. I would love to know what concealers you love, so drop me a comment and let me know!

    1. I love the Rimmel wake me up but even the lightest one is a tad to dark for me unfortunately :( I'm trying out concealers from NYX now so hoping I fair better with them x

    1. I've just started using NYX concealer and I'm totally impressed so hope to have a review of that soon. The powder from the compact I think I will definitely have to buy separately xx

  5. I haven't tried any S&G makeup apart from whatever came in the Boots Star Buy a few years ago - the mascara and lipgloss I think. I also find the glasses thing an issue, my nose pads are usually caked in either concealer or foundation and then I'm left with two white patches on my face under the pads! I've started using NARS creamy concealer again but combined it with a bit of Catrice, can't remember the name but it's quite a thick concealer in a little round pot and it seems to stay put over the NARS a bit better x
