Review with Look - Soap & Glory Lid Stuff - 'Off the Wallflowers'

I'm really excited about this post, because I've wanted this eyeshadow palette for a long time! I read a glowing review on it somewhere online, but I can't remember where. It's a Lid Stuff quad palette from Soap & Glory, the one I chose is 'Off the Wallfowers'. I picked it up for €14.50 in Boots. There are two more Lid Stuff colour choices available too, 'What's Nude' and 'Smokey Dokey'. At the moment I feel like I have enough nude shades with my Naked 2 and Sleek 'Au Natural' palettes, and I love a bit of colour so I chose 'Off the Wallflowers'. Here it is in all its (Soap &) Glory!

One of the things I really love about it is that there is no sponge applicator! I hate those crappy useless things! There is a short statement about this on the back of the packaging - 'We chose not to include a cheap spongy shadow brush, because not only would it drive the price of this palette up, we thought you'd rather opt for a proper one' Good work, Soap & Glory. Can any of you remember the last time you actually used one of them? What a waste they are!
On to the swatches.

Sugar Violet, Dandy Plum, Minky, Wild Blue
'Sugar Violet' is a beautiful matte violet shade, it's actually quite bright! 'Dandy Plum' is a deep, red brown toned plum with a shimmer finish. 'Minky' is so pretty, pale gold shimmer with subtle pink undertones, while 'Wild Blue' is a bold blue shimmer.
Here's the look I created with this palette!

I used 'Minky' all over the lid, applied 'Dandy Plum' in the crease and blended 'Sugar Violet' above it. I placed Wild Blue all along the lower lash line.
The quality of these shadows is so good. They're soft, very pigmented and they're lovely to work with. I love this palette! I'm so glad I finally got it and that it didn't disappoint. I can see myself using it a lot. There's a great mix of colours to make a bunch of different looks with. I'm really looking forward to using it more and I might even pick up another one. I hope they'll come out with a wider range of eyeshadows, as far as I know the Lid Stuff palettes are the only shadows they do. I'd definitely like to see more colour combinations from them.

This is the second Soap & Glory product I've used. For my birthday my Mom got me one of their lipsticks, a Super-Colour Fabulipstick in 'The Missing Pink' which is a medium pink shade. It's a great lipstick, it's really moisturising and I use it quite often! I also have their Kick Ass Concealer but I haven't used it yet. I have a Maybelline Cover Stick on the go and I'd like to get through a bit more of that first. I have my eye on a few more of their products too, hopefully I'll get my hands on them in the future.

I'll sign off with more pictures of the look. Enjoy!

    1. They're so pretty, I love them! Is Soap & Glory available in the US Vicky?

    3. Cool! They do a lot of bath and body stuff too, I read somewhere that they do a great body butter.
