Soap & Glory recently launched a rather comprehensive range of colour cosmetics and that included 2 eyeshadow quads called ‘Lid Stuff’.
There are 3 variations, I have 2 of them here, Smokey Dokey and What’s Nude:
Smokey Dokey has four colours in deep smokey shades, Diamondust, Chine, Black Gold and Smokin’
What’s Nude contains Vanilla, Pink T, Mudhoney, Aubersheen.
These eyeshadows come in a plastic clear compacts – quite simple but nice like the MAC ones.
The eyeshadows are round and come in sets of 4 only.
Smokey Dokey – There is a white cream, a pale shimmery lilac, a mid toned grey and a black.
The pigmentation of this is medium. It’s definitely buildable and in that sense works pretty well for people who aren’t that confident with eyeshadow, especially darker colours. I do like my mattes and I’d say they are decent mattes but not super creamy.
What’s Nude is the shade I really wanted to try!
The cream, beige and mid toned brown are mattes, then there is a shimmery mushroom shade – a really nice nude look palette.
The pigmentation is quite sheer, but once again it’s a good beginners palette and for £10 for 4 shades, it’s quite a bargain. I think many people will get a lot of use out of these kind of colours:
I really like the beige in particular.
Overall these palettes are very useful and will have a lot of mass appeal; I have no doubt of that and they have the right amount of pigment for the majority of customers. For me, I am spoilt and would like something richer in pigment and more creamy. I also would’ve loved to have seen something more wild; it is Soap & Glory after all, they’re a fun brand so hopefully in the future they’ll release some brighter, glittery, shimmery shadows too.
