* Soap & Glory Crazy Sexy Kohl - £18
Let me start off by saying that I am usually not a fan of coloured liners. I can't seem to pull them off and I'm not a huge fan of colour on my eyes anyway so when this beauty landed on my doormat I was a bit dubious. The eyeshadows in Smokin', Aubersheen and Dandy Plum are all colours that I would happily wear but the eyeliners (L to R: Superblack, Cocoa Bean, Aquabat, Blue My Mind and Grapevine) seemed very bright in the tube. However I decided to give them a try.
I was so pleasantly surprised. The kohl is soft so that it doesn't tug at the waterline but hard enough that it doesn't smudge or squish too much if you use slightly too much pressure. The pigmentation is amazing and while these are bright, all apart from Aquabat I can get to work with any neutral eye in my Naked palette and all work well with the three eyeshadows provided. If you buy the liners alone you can only pick up Superblack and Cocoa Bean and they retail for £5 each so you're really getting a good deal here.
The eyeshadows are beautiful. Soft without much fallout, pigmented like nobody's business and in great every day colours that would work with a variety of skin tones and eye colours. You can buy the Lid Stuff quad palettes for £10 each and Soap & Glory have put one colour from each palette in this set making it perfect to sample their eyeshadows and eyeliners without forking out a fortune. I had no problem getting these out of the packaging and they would easily fit in an appropriately sized palette if you didn't want them in the tin.
This is one of my favourite 'collections' of products and I'll definitely be checking out more Soap & Glory make up after the success of this.
