A few weeks ago, when Soap & Glory launched its cosmetics range, I was sent their new Glow All Out (*) luminizing radiance face powder to test and review. I’ve already reviewed their What’s Nude eyeshadow palette for you guys, but I’ve been using Glow All Out pretty regularly (when I remember to apply a highlighter LOL!) so I thought I can give you my thoughts on this now! Here it goes.
The Soap & Glory Glow All Out Luminizing Radiance Face Powder comes in a round cardboard compact with magnetic closure that holds a mirror on the inside of the lid and 9g (or .31 oz) of product. The product itself is a peachy pink with the tiniest sparkling particles for the highlighting effect and has Soap & Glory‘s logo embossed on it. On the back of the compact you can find a little instruction how to use the product.
The colour of the product could be a beautiful blush, but due to its highlighting quality comes out as beautiful pink-silverish sheen that works perfect for a healthy glow. I would say it’s very comparable to the pink-silver glow you get from Benefit‘s Moonbeam cream highlighter! So in comparison to that, it’s definitely a cheaper option! Dusting it ever so lighly over the entire face gives the skin a nice radiance. I have been getting compliments whenever I wear it that I look happy (by which I guess people mean ‘healthy’?) so that’s a good sign.
I can’t fault this product really – besides the price tag and maybe the packaging. I pointed out many times that I’m stingy and thus it’s very unlikely that I would pay £11 for a highlighter powder. There are just a few equally good, but cheaper alternatives out there such as the Accessorize Baked Bronzer in Golden Sand, which has more product in it [12.5g] and retails for only £7 – although that one has a golden sheen to it, rather than a pinkish one, so maybe that’s not very comparable!
In terms of the packaging – I’m just not sure on the product being in a cardboard compact. All the other cosmetics products by Soap & Glory that I’ve come across are in plastic packing – I don’t really understand their decision here to put the product in a cardboard boxing. Also – I generally find Soap & Glory‘s packaging distracting, but that’s a personal taste – I know a lot of you guys like that especially! And in any case, that doesn’t make the product in any way bad, right? ;-)
Have you tried this Soap & Glory Glow All Out product? Do you like Soap & Glory’s packaging? Do you think £11 is ok or too steep?
