Soap and Glory - Crazy Sexy Kohl Liners

 
 
 
Soap and Glory - Crazy, Sexy Kohl Liners - RRP £19.00 - Sale Price in Boots - £8.00
 
Hi ladies, before I get on to this little bargain I just wanted to start by saying that I hope you've all had an amazing Christmas and got everything you wished for and more, I certainty did and I look forward too seeing all of your new bits and bobs on your blogs over the next few weeks. I was going to post a Boxing Day haul on my blog today but for some reason blogger wasn't working out for me and would only let me add two photo's to this post so I thought i'd just show you each thing at a time instead. I went for a mooch around the Boxing day sales on Wednesday and if I'm honest I never really find a whole lot that I think is really worth it but Boots were offering 50% of every single one of their Christmas gift sets! Therefore I picked up a fair few and so have loads of bits and bobs to show you all. The first of which was one of the gift sets from Soap and Glory which I love! It's the gift set which contains 5 of S&G's most favourite smoulder eye kohl liners and also 3 of their pan form eyeshadows.
 
You can actually buy these smoulder eye kohl's separately from the Soap and Glory range, each retailing at £5.00 (here) each so even before the sale to get 5 of their eyeliners (retailing for £25.00) and 3 eyeshadows housed in a really cute tin for £19.00 was a real bargain but being reduced to half price just made it a must buy for me. The colours you get within this set are Superblack, a carbon black eyeliner, Cocoa Bean, a deep brown eyeliner, Aquabat, deep emerald green, Blue my mind, bright jubilee blue and grapevine which is a dark plumy purple. These liners are really good quality and are really soft when you apply them, I've tried them on my waterline and on my top lash line and they work really well on both. These liners are incredibly pigmented and are also the type of liners that are smooth enough that you can blend and smudge them out if you want to create a smokey eye look. The only thing I would say about these liners is the fact that if you apply them on your lower lash line they are likely to smudge and end up just below your lashes due to the fact that they are so soft and are meant to be liners that can smudge out easily, other than that I love them and you can always set the liner with some eye shadow if you need too.
 
Also within this set you get 3 of their panned eyeshadows, normally you can get 4 of their panned eyeshadows in a quad for £10.00 so I am guessing each pan retails at about £2.00 each. You get 3 colours within this palette that actually really compliment each other, firstly you get Aubersheen, which is a sheeny light brown, dandy plum, which is nearly exactly the same shade as grapevine and lastly you get smokin' which is a dark black with tiny specks of silver shimmer included. From first impressions all of these shadows seem fairly pigmented and you could easily create a smokey night time look with these or a simple look for the day time as well if you left smokin' out of the mix.
 
All in all I am really impressed with this gift set, it is amazing value for money even before the 50% off, but for 5 eyeliners and 3 eyeshadows of good quality for £8.00 you really can't go wrong at all. Unfortunately this gift set is already sold out on the Boots website. What bargains have you picked up in the sales?
