I have a review for you today – if you browse through my blog you might think that I’m obsessed with mascaras because I have a lot of review posts! Looking in my Muji drawers, there would be a whole WEALTH of evidence to send me to Mascara Misuse Rehab (I have about 4 open at one time). The mascara I’ve been using recently is one that I’ve tried before, from Soap & Glory.
The Soap & Glory Thick & Fast *do you want any more ampesands* ‘Collagen’ mascara is, as far as I know, the main mascara line that Soap & Glory has. Aiming to ‘lay down volume and intensity’ using it’s V shaped brush, it claims to add thickness and volume without needing to work at it.
As always with these kind of reviews, below I’ve added a before and after so you can see the effect of the mascara on my own lashes. (I also did my eyebrows lol)
The pros of this mascara are:
- It is affordable compared to something like Benefit’s They’re Real, Bad Gal Lash or Roller Lash
- It’s really well pigmented!
- The brush feels nice to use
- Gorgeous packaging! (well, I think so, something satisfying about the all over gold wand)
- It is quite good at lengthening (see above picture)
The cons of this mascara are:
- You may get Repetitive Strain Injury from having to go back and build up every single layer to get volume and length. Seriously, this is NOT THICK AND FAST IT IS THIN AND SLOW (-_-)
- The mascara has a watery consistency compared to most others on the shelves
- Did I mention it’s hard to build up?
- Oh, and someone get Soap and Glory to supply a small robot with each purchase TO MOVE THE MASCARA UP AND DOWN ON YOUR EYES TO SAVE YOUR WRIST
Aside from these points, I actually quite like it lol.
It’s not a pain to get off, it doesn’t feel wet on the lashes which is good (however Roller Lash does so you may want to steer clear) and it’s quite good at lengthening which I was surprised at.
What do you think, have you tried this Soap & Glory mascara before?
Until next time lovely readers!
