Soap & Glory 'Solar Powder'

Soap & Glory Solar Powder Review
What's this? Another Soap & Glory-related blog post? Oh yes it is.

I have been caught hook, line and sinker by their makeup collection since I first properly tried it out last year.  I've found myself adding more and more new items to my makeup bag which come from their range, with a lot of their products being forever repurchased.  One of the items which I recently chose to repurchase was their Solar Powder bronzer.


The bronzer itself is split into two shades, with a delicate coating of pink highlighter on the lettering too.  One of the bronzer shades is a caramel brown and the other is a pale chocolate-coloured shade.  I think the thing that keeps me repurchasing this is the fact that it is pale enough for me to wear when I haven't applied fake tan.  I am naturally very fair-skinned and it is such a task trying to find a bronzer/contour kit that doesn't leave terrible lines around my face and jaw bone; I find that both of the shades in this palette are pale enough to leave my skin with a natural-looking sun-kissed glow.

Once I have applied my base makeup, I gently work in the paler of the two shades below my cheek bones, building up a subtle contour.  I have found that the Real Techniques Setting Brush is the best for application of this; the brush is soft enough to sweep the colour onto my cheeks but defined enough in shape to apply the bronzer as a contour.  Once I have built up enough colour in the paler shade, I work back in with the darker shade to follow.  I sweep both shades around the sides of my forehead too as I have a heart-shaped face and I find this palette great to add the extra definition.

If you're looking to banish those awkward 'makeup lines', perhaps this is the bronzer for you.

What's your favourite bronzer?

  4. I haven't tried any of the S&G makeup range but I've think you've just tempted me to try this! I never wear bronzer as I'm so pale and just don't know how to apply it but this sounds like it would be perfect for me! xx

    1. It's pretty hand for paler skin tones! I really struggle to find suitable bronzers and it adds a subtle glow/contour. I'd recommend the Soap & Glory eyeliner too as it's one of my favourites :) xx
