Soap and Glory Mascara



Before mascara

After mascara

Thick and Fast is part of Soap and Glory's new line of cosmetics. This was given free with Elle Magazine this month and there has been a lot of hype around it. The aim of this product is to give you luscious lashes with lots of volume. Unfortunately for me, I was left a little disappointed. 

I have come to learn that I am really not a fan of mascaras with big wands, and this mascara definitely has a big one. I just find them to hard to juggle. I always end up getting some product on my eyelid or to the side of my eye. It seems really difficult to wiggle the wand at the base of my lashes and avoid this unsightly mess. Never mind the fact that it is near on completely impossible to get to the small inner lashes. This is one of the reasons why I didn't like this mascara.

Many girls over the past weeks have enjoyed using this product but I just don't see the fuss. I don't see much volume at all, which leaves the one other reason that I would want to wear mascara - to lengthen my lashes - to be its selling point for me, and it doesn't really lengthen that much either. I think this mascara just lacks the wow factor that other high street brands give. 

Looking at my other options, I would much prefer to use Volume Million Lashes by L'oreal Paris (click here to see pictures of me wearing this), or in fact any of the L'oreal Paris mascaras. I think they're amazing and great quality for the price.

I don't knock Soap and Glory as a brand at all because I absolutely adore many of their other products, including the Supercat Eyeliner and the Hand Food Hand Cream that I did a review on recently, but this one just isn't for me.

  1. I was left slightly disappointed with this mascara too, I found it flaked off quite a bit and just didn't have enough product/made my lashes full of volume or anything..
    I bought the supercat eyeliner and I'm hoping I'll like that a bit more as I've heard great reviews. I've never used the Loreal mascaras before, but after reading your review on the million lashes one I think I'm going to try that!
