Soap & Glory Kick Ass Instant Retouch Pressed Powder

This pressed powder from Soap and Glory is available from Boots for £12. I bought this on a bit of a whim in store as I just really needed a pressed powder, and actually, I was really impressed.

The packaging is good and has a good size mirror inside. In the pan, the powder leans yellow in tone which doesn’t translate strongly on the skin, however I do think it adds some brightness.

I found this sets my makeup really well and keeps it in acceptable condition all day with no need to touch up! It doesn’t break up in an ugly way when any oils start coming through. By the end of the day, I’d be slightly shiny but nothing that bothered me or made me think “omg I’m a mess”. This is great for me as I am really not one who can be bothered with touching up throughout the day!

On application, it sets everything down and mattifies without looking cakey or overly powdery. When I have used it later on in the day to touch up, say if I’m going out again later in the day or evening, it brings any shine down and perfects and refreshes my skin and makeup, again, without any cakey-ness.

I’m glad this rather impulsive purchase paid off and I discovered a pretty great powder available on the high street.

Love Nicole xxxx
