Soap & Glory have the most gorgeous bath and shower products, and I have heard brilliant things about their powder, SuperCat eyeliner and Thick & Fast mascara. I am a big fan of their skincare products, particular the products that are geared towards people with oily/combination skin, aka me, such as the No Clogs Allowed face mask. For this reason, I was excited to check out their new foundation. The One Heck Of A Blot (£12) foundation comes in a measly four shades, which off the bat is very disappointing to me. Finding a foundation in the "drugstore" is hard enough as is when you're testing dirty bottles on your hand so having a decent range of shades available is a no-brainer.

Aside from this, Nic from pixiwoo gave the foundation a glowing review on the YouTube channel she shares with her older sister, so I decided to try it out for myself. I tested the two darkest shades, Happy Medium was too light and Caramel seemed closest to my skin tone, although in retrospect it seems too dark. In future, I would suggest go for the lighter shade than the darker shade as you can always warm it up with bronzer.
I didn't enjoy this foundation, I thought it was very yellow, but a cool yellow, I would have liked a little more warmth. Of course, the colour was all wrong but that can't be helped with such a sparse selection of shades to choose from. This foundation is said to be suitable for oily/combination skin types. It claims to conceal pores, fine lines and redness, as well as having a wear-time of twelve hours and a shine-free finish.
Another claim made is that it doesn't look heavy on the skin, I thought it did. The application was patchy for me, it wasn't as easy to blend as I would have hoped. In addition, I like my foundations to be very lightweight and comfortable to wear, to feel like nothing on the skin, this felt like a layer on my skin, most likely because I couldn't blend it as seamlessly as I would like. Maybe with a Beauty Blender you get a better finish, I am not sure. I wouldn't recommend this foundation, I might be willing to try it again if they bring out more colours. Have you tried it? What are your thoughts?
I have quite a few foundations that I love from the drugstore that are cheaper than the £12 this foundation retails for, if you would like a post on my favourite foundations from the drugstore or otherwise then let me know in the comments. I would love to hear your suggestions for future posts. Have a lovely week. Take care.
