Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot

As a girl with combination/oily skin I need a good face powder to keep away the shine. I have used a lot of powders in my life and as someone who is very curious when it comes to new beauty products I decided to give this one a go. I bought this on my last trip to London in December, a trip where I picked up A LOT of make-up and fashion goodies. You can see the haul HERE.
I have never tried any products from Soap & Glory before. It’s a popular brand in the #bblogger community, but since we don’t have it in the Netherlands I have never used any of their products. I actually picked up two more Soap & Glory products:  the Supercat Liner, which I LOVE, and the Archery Brow Pencil that I still need to try, but I had high hopes for the Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot Powder.

Let’s say it didn’t disappoint at all. It keeps my face matte all day and looks amazing on the skin. Some powders can make my foundation look a bit cakey, but this one doesn’t do that. I also like the fact that it’s transparent, because I am very pale and most face powders make me look more tan than I really am. This results in a slight colour difference between my face and the rest of my body and to be honest that is never a good look.
I just take a big powder brush and press the product on to my skin. I don’t like the sweeping motion, since this can move the concealer I just applied on my spots and acne scars and we don’t want that, do we? It’s also fragrance-free which I like A LOT.

I am very happy with this product! It does the job at keeping my shine at bay and it makes my face make-up look natural and matte. I will definitely pick up more Soap & Glory products when I am back in the UK!
