Soap & Glory The Mighty Contourer
I can’t ignore the fact that I just did a Google search on this and the first page to pop up is Boots with this product at £9. However, clicking the link, it’s not in stock, but it is in stock on the Soap & Glory website for £12. Hmm. I don’t follow the brand enough to know if there was a previous version but this is listed as new on the S&G site.
I do like this for its light feeling, easy to blend textures – but you don’t get a huge amount of colour pay off. If you like to contour you’ll need a small and precise brush not to pick up two shades at once in the bottom row, but for a hand-bag, quick touch-up set, it’s perfectly adequate. There’s a translucency to all of the shades that make contouring hard to mess up – and of course, they’re creme formulas which I personally think gives a much better blended finish than powders.
These are the shades in my sample (Fair’s Fair) swatched at intensity: I felt, when I tested them on my face they had a slightly blurry finish (good). I don’t know if it’s £12 worth of contour though – at £9 I was in, but £12 seems a little steep for 3.2g of makeup. The Soap & Glory information page is HERE, but the Boots link doesn’t work – it may just not yet be listed on line and you’ll be able to find it in store. OR, it’s a distinct possiblity that I’ve lost some vital piece of information!
