Soap and Glory Thick and Fast Mascara Review

Hello again :)
Just wanted to do a quick little post on Soap and Glory's Thick and Fast Mascara that came free with Elle magazine. I would have never have known about this lovely little freebie ;) if it hadn't of been for Kristin's post. I've never read Elle before in my life, but wanted to give the mascara a go - so thought why not! 



First of all the brush is massive! I don't mind this but, it is difficult to apply this without getting it on your eyelid. It's a lovely true black colour, which is great. I think the consistency of this mascara is quite thin and it's difficult to get enough product on the brush to really coat your lashes. It took about 2 coats to get a full enough coverage whereas, with the my Maybelline Collosal Cat Eyes Mascara i can get away with just one coat. I really love the way this separates the lashes and lengthens them. In my opinion i think it lengthens my lashes more as opposed to thickening them, but that could just be me haha!
I reaaaaally love the packaging, i think it's lovely and simple :). I probably wouldn't buy this again but, I will enjoy using it up as i do think it makes my lashes look quite long. 


Go pick up Elle magazine if your're interested in giving this mascara a go :).
Thanks everyone!
Lots of love,
Izy

  3. Aww thanks for the link hun and I'm glad my post came in handy hehe =)
    This mascara does look lovely on you and appears to have lengthened your lashes. I have found that it's consistency is a lot drier to what I prefer but with patience you can really achieve the look you want. I've been wearing it all week and really do enjoy using it =)
