Review: Soap & Glory Thick and Fast Mascara

Hey Everyone,

I'm sorry I have been a little heavy on the Soap and Glory front recently, but I am sincerely enjoying their makeup at the moment, so I hope you don't mind that I'm back today with a little review of their mascara.

I believe Soap and Glory now do two mascaras; the original Thick and Fast, and the newer Thick and Fast High Definition (It actually has a ridiculously long name that I don't care to remember!). If it helps, the original is in a black tube and the new one is gold.


I had seen the original one when it was relatively new, but it didn't really catch my attention as much as this one did. What caught my attention about this one was the 'definition' aspect of it, so I thought it might be a little better for me, as I like flared eyelashes rather than 'thick' ones. It also says that it was part of Red's Best of Beauty 2012 campaign, so I figured I should give it a go....and I love it.

No mascara

The mascara really helps define your eyelashes while also making them long. It creates volume without looking clumpy, and is not that difficult to apply. The wand is a bristle brush, which I prefer over plastic. All in all, a really nice purchase.

With Thick and Fast

This mascara is a little more on the expensive side, coming in at roughly £10, but the quality matches and even exceeds some high end rivals that retail for a lot more. Considering it's performance and the design quality, I would actually say that this mascara is well worth every penny.

I promise a variety of posts are coming soon!

Thanks for reading,

YouTube's newest Vlogger!

Hey Everyone!

Just wanted to do a quick post letting you know that I have made a YouTube channel. My first video went up yesterday and apart from my dodgey hair, bag lighting and crappy quality, it went pretty well! *sarcastic laugh*

We do live in a relatively free world so I can't make you do anything, but if you decide you would like to have a peek at it you can click here or just search for 'BirdsAndButtons' on YouTube.
Do you like my work of art?

You may look at it now and go 'Fatemeh, WHAT is this?!' but I promise things will gradually improve. So that's it for now, but I will be back soon with a proper post for y'all.

Thanks for reading!

Review: Soap and Glory Lipstick

Hey Everyone,

I can't apologise enough for how long I have been away, but I am back today with a new little discovery. I think I want to call these posts 'Bell Time' from now on, because they aren't quite reviews; I'm just letting you know about a little discovery or two. Let me know what you think about that?

The other day, I wandered over to the Soap and Glory makeup in Boots, and after seeing the big bad '3 for 2' sign, I decided to try a few things out. One of the things I got was a lipstick in the shade 'Pom Pom'. I was stuck between two colours, but my friend persuaded me to get this one, and I'm so happy she did!

The box
The lipstick range has several pretty colours with two formulae: matte and satin. 'Pom Pom' is a matte shade.
'Pom Pom'

At first, I was really worried it would look bad on the lips, but as far as matte colours go, it's pretty good. I would still recommend putting a bit of lip balm on beforehand, especially if you're going outside.
No colour

The shade is a really pretty berry colour, and is relatively neutral so your teeth don't end up looking like Captain Hook's. My friend says the colour suits my complexion, but I genuinely think it would suit a whole variety of skin colours.

'Pom Pom' on the lips

The lipsticks retail for £9 in Boots, but as I said, there is currently a '3 for 2' deal. They are a little pricey, but I don't mind too much about such things if the product is good. Also, the packaging is sturdy and looks decent. Have you tried any of these?

Talk soon!
