Guest Post: Soap and Glory Thick and Fast Mascara

Hi everyone, today I have another guest post from a fantastic and lovely blogger, Amy. I really enjoy reading her blog, you can check it out here. I'll hand it over to Amy!
Hi guys!
First of all, many thanks to Zoe for letting me do a guest post for her lovely blog. :)
I thought that after checking out her product directory, it would be pretty fitting to talk a Soap and Glory product, since it seems she's a fan, and so am I!
I'll be reviewing the infamous Thick & Fast Mascara, which is both loved and hated in the world of beauty enthusiasts.
Anyway, here's what I reckon....


In typical Soap & Glory style, the packaging is girly and pretty. What more is there really to say?
This retails for £10, which isn't the cheapest you can get for "drugstore" makeup, but also not the most expensive by any means. I think it's pretty reasonable.

What I reckon....
This, for me, is totally hit and miss!
The formula is a nice jet black, but the brush is HUGE, which is usually fantastic, but can be a bit of a pain for dealing with teeny little lashes.
For me, it did live up to its claims of being volumising (and doing it fast, for that matter), but I do have a problem with my lashes clumping together a little, which sometimes happens when I add more than one coat, which is a shame, although I can usually fix this by giving it a thorough combing through with a spooly brush.
As for lasting power, I'd say this is pretty great! I don't have any problems when it comes to flaking and smudging, and my lashes seem to still look lovely and thick by the end of the day!
All in all...
I think this is a reasonably priced mascara with impressive results. Saying that, I wish Soap & Glory would perhaps downsize the brush to grab my teeny tiny lashes and save me from those irritating smudges on my eyelid.
Overall, a thumbs up, Soap & Glory!

Thank you for the fantastic review, Amy! Do check out her blog its a great read!
Have you tried this mascara too? What are your thoughts?


  1. I've tried this mascara before and just thought it was okay, not the best mascara I've used and think there are better option out there.

    1. I feel the same, I think its a good one but I find it a little messy! x

  2. I love this mascara :) If you find it's clumping, just twirl the wand as you apply it or use one of those eye brow/ eye lashes combs. I always find that gets rid of them xx


    1. Ooh, thats a fab tip! Thank you :) xx

  3. Thanks again Zoe for letting me do a guest post! It was loads of fun :) xx

    1. No problem, hun! It was! Can I just say how gorgeous your eyes are too!? xx

  4. I have been looking for a new mascara to try right now... maybe this would work for me. I will have to try it out. Thanks for sharing your review of it!

  5. I didn't even know they did Mascara and after reading this i think its going to be my next one to try out.
