Soap and Glory: Thick and Fast Mascara

Hi lovelies, 

So this month Elle magazine teamed up with Soap and Glory and gave away the Thick and Fast mascara with the magazine. I was really excited when I heard about this freebie as this mascara usually retails at £10. 

Firstly I love the packaging, I'm a sucker for anything Soap and Glory and I find it very simple yet chic.

Soap and Glory say: "This false lash effect mascara creates amazingly, longer, fuller, fabulous lashes. False Lash Fillers, Noflake24 technology and super-fine-no-clumps natural wax film formers".

Now usually this isn't the sort of brush I'd go for in a mascara as I find it sometimes a little annoying. The other thing I found when applying this I found the brush rather big which meant the application was a little annoying. 

Onto the false lash effect - I did not notice this at all! I found it great as an everyday natural mascara but I don't find it gives volume or longer lashes. 

I thought the longer brush was going to mean application time was cut shorter, however I found that because the brush was bigger it lengthened application time as it was a little fiddly. You do also find that you may smudge your mascara while applying due to the brush.

Onto swatches on the eye:

I figured I'd show you a before and after:

So yeah I find it doesn't add much really, to be fair I do like it as an everyday mascara because if you want a mascara that looks subtle this can be it. 

However when you're marketing it as a volumizing and lengthening mascara this isn't that. Sorry S&G. With the price tag of £10 I feel that I can find better mascaras for a fraction of the price.

Like I said this retails at £10 and can be purchased at Boots.
