Soap & Glory - Kick Ass Concealer



 So Boots did it again. 3 for 2 offers are killers. Aren't we all a victim of that amazing offer we all love and hate all at the same time!?

On my recent trip to a bigger Boots store I found the Soap & Glory make-up stand and ended up buying this Kick Ass Concealer three-piece kit. It comes with two compartments, one split into two different concealers; an all over face concealer, and a under eye brightening concealer. And one with a concealer sealing powder.

I've been using Kick-Ass Concealer for over a week now, and I found that my favourite part of the kit is the under-eye concealer. It found it brightens up my eyes, covering the dark circles well and helping my face look a little brighter. I use concealer under my eyes more than anywhere else so this is useful everyday, and it does do the job better than my previous concealers.
I found the all-over face concealer to be a little dark for my skin bearing in mind my olive tone. I also found it caking over my blemishes a little too much that you could tell where I'd applied it. It meant I used more foundation over those areas to cover-up the concealer, which I feel shouldn't be the case. I don't think I'll be using this as much as the rest of the kit, as it just doesn't do the job well enough for me.
The sealing powder was proved to be useful as it sets the concealer in place quite well. I never thought of setting concealer before applying foundation, as I find applying foundation over concealer makes it slide all out of place.

If I'm honest although I don't like the all-over-face concealer and will probably buy another one soon, I do really like the under-eye concealer and the powder. The colour wasn't spot on but as I won't be using much of the concealer, it's not much of a problem.
So conclusively, it's two thirds worth the money I paid for it. It was on offer so it was £7 rather than the usual £10. I don't think I'll be buying it again, but if Soap & Glory did do just an under-eye concealer, or a concealer setting powder, I would buy that. It has got a cool name for a concealer though... ;)

What Soap & Glory make up products have you tried?
I want to try One Heck of a Blot powder and the SuperCat eye-liner!
