SOAP & GLORY | GIRL-O-WHIRL

Soap & Glory Girl-O-Whirl


For Christmas I was lucky enough to receive several Soap & Glory products, one of which was the Girl-O-Whirl set which Adam's parents gave me. I thought I'd write a little post about it as it's a great set and it's also currently half price in the Boots sale! Please note: I was unable to take photos in any kind of decent light so most of mine are rubbish - sorry about that! I also used a few of the photos from boots.com for this reason.

Soap & Glory Girl-O-Whirl eyeshadows

It contains six eye shadows which are all lovely. I'm not quite sure when or if I'll use the blue shade but I've already used all of the other ones. They are of a very good quality and blend really well. I think the shimmery purple is my favourite shade as it's just so beautiful!

Soap & Glory Girl-O-Whirl lip colours

It also has six lip shades but I have only used one so far. To be honest, I'm not a massive fan of lip products that come in this palette form as I find them a bit trickier to apply, but the shades are very nice, even though most of them are quite similar.

Soap & Glory Girl-O-Whirl Solar Powder Glow All Over

I was very excited to see the inclusion of Solar Powder and Glow All Out as I have never tried these products but they looked really good. I wasn't disappointed - I love them both. Solar Powder is a beautiful bronzer which suits even my very pale skin tone and I've been using it for contouring every day since Christmas. I think I'll buy it individually when this one runs out. Glow All Out is a luminising face powder which can be used all over for a lovely glow or as a highlighter in targeted places. I've been using it as a highlighter since I don't fancy putting something shimmery all over my face. It works wonderfully and has a nice pale pink tone to it; it also catches the light beautifully.

Soap & Glory Girl-O-Whirl Thick and Fast Mascara

It has a full-sized tube of Thick and Fast mascara which I have been loving. I actually got two tubes of this at Christmas and I'm very glad because it's become my new daily mascara (I use it on top of Maybelline's Colossal mascara - try it, it's an amazing combo!).

Soap & Glory Girl-O-Whirl Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick

There is also a full-sized Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in the shade Nudist. I have several Sexy Mother Pucker glosses but this is more like a lipstick that is quite sheer. It's a natural pink colour and is a really great everyday product.

Finally, the set comes with three brushes - an eye shadow one (surprisingly not one of the rubbish sponge applicators!), a lip brush (both of these are double-ended) and a small blusher brush which I've been using to apply the highlighter. These are not amazing quality but I never expect brushes that come in sets to be great anyway, although to be fair these are better than what most sets offer.

Overall, I really love this set as there is a great variety of products in it and they are all of a high quality. I can't believe it's only £20 in the Boots sale! Make sure you grab it quick as I'm sure there won't be many around for long and you don't want to miss out on this!

  1. I wish I'd picked this up when I had the chance.
    The Boots sale was really great this year - I managed to pick up some Soap & Glory gift sets half price.
    I've done a couple of posts about the bargains I've found in the sales, including the Boots sale - would love if you could check them out. :)

  2. I nearly treated myself to this before Christmas when it was one of Boots star gifts but I resisted. I'm glad I did now as somebody bought me the eyesbox for Christmas, which contains exactly the same eye shadows, and I wasn't keen on the palette style lip shades anyway :)
