Soap and Glory Powder Trip; Review

Sometimes, when scrolling through the Boots website, we find a deal that we quite simply cannot ignore. Whilst scrolling through the website on boxing day, I saw that the Soap & Glory 'Powder Trip' was half price and it was only £10. Considering each powder is £11/£12 each and you get a brush and a mirror with them all, I thought my eyes were going to pop out of my head (they didn't though, no one panic). I immediately placed an order and collected it in store a week later. I went straight home and got playing around with it. I was like a 5 year old with a brand new toy.
Unfortunately this isn't available from Boots for the same price I paid anymore, but you can get it here for £21.95 which is still a fab deal for all 3 powders.

Can we all just take a moment and admire the packaging? I absolutely LOVE it. It is made of cardboard but it's so sturdy. The magnet that closes it is really strong, some mornings when I'm half asleep I struggle to get it open.

In this set you get 3 of Soap and Glory's best selling powders; the Glow All Out Luminizing Face Powder, the Love At First Blush Blushing Powder and the Solar Powder Bronzer. I have wanted to try these powders for the longest time after seeing Fleur rave about them on her blog a while back.

The Glow All Out powder is a pinky-champagne highlighter with amazing pigmentation. This highlighter adds such a gorgeous glow to your cheekbones without looking over the top (Edward Cullen I'm looking at you). I like to apply this with my 'Contour Brush' from Real Techniques. Before I got this set I was a 'highlighter virgin' as some may say, but as this is so good I really want to try more. Please let me know of any highlighters that you really love in the comments!

Being very pale means that out on the high street, bronzers that work with pale skinned girls like myself, without making us look like tangerines, *David Attenborough voice* are very rare . Well girls, I think I've finally found a bronzer that works for pale skin. Enter, the Solar Powder *dun dun dun*. 

This is a bronzing duo that comes with a light brown shade with a hint of shimmer, and a dark brown shade that is completely matte. Swirl them together and say hello to the perfect contour shade. I also love the fact that this is buildable so you can darken it up if you wish.

The final powder in my little pony (lets just pretend that didn't happen) Powder Trip is the Love at First Blush Multi Shade Shimmer Powder (. Now I'm not usually one for wearing blush, but since getting this I've been trying it out more. 

This is a really glowy blush, all the colours contain shimmer and when you swirl your brush around the amount of shimmer increases massively. For that reason I do recommend being VERY light handed with this blush or you will look like Edward Cullen. This also works really well as a highlighter but you yet again have to be very light handed.

Finally, there is a little brush included that in all honesty, isn't half bad!

Andd that is all from me for today. I hope you've enjoyed this post and have found it helpful in some way. If you have any post requests, please feel free to leave them in the comments. Have a great week.♥
