Soap & Glory | One Heck of A Blot.

I am a huge fan of the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, but I have been using it for that long, that I just fancied a change. I'm also really annoyed with it's packaging, the flimsy plastic lid is just a no go, i'm sick of it falling off or snapping! I had heard great things about the Soap & Glory powder, One Heck Of A Blot so decided to pick it up on a trip to Boots a couple of months ago, and give it a go.

One Heck Of A Blot is a finely milled, translucent mattifying powder which is housed in retro looking, black plastic packaging. However this plastic is far from flimsy! It is really sturdy and durable, which is good for carrying on a daily basis in the bottom of your bag. It also comes with a powder puff inside, which i'm never a fan off so don't tend to use, and a large mirror in the lid which is great for touching up on the go.

The pan is embossed with the word 'Powder' and a few stars which I love! it just adds that bit of something special to what could be a pretty boring looking piece of makeup, although it disappears after a few uses. In the pan it looks ghostly white, with a slight yellow undertone, once applied it suits all skin types and tones. 

I apply this with a normal powder brush and apply it on my chin and t-zone first, before dusting a slight amount over my whole face. You could go very heavy handed with this product, and it would still look untraceable. It leaves a lovely velvety, smooth finish to the skin which is always a bonus. 
I've recently been suffering from a little bit of dry skin along my nose and on my forehead, and the powder doesn't cling to it at all! 

I have to say that this has fast become my favourite powder!! Yes it is a little more pricey that the Rimmel version but you definitely get better quality. Soap & Glory claim that the One Heck Of A Blot is 'Amazing, Addictive and Invisible'..I couldn't agree more!

Have you tried any makeup products from Soap & Glory? What is your favourite?
