Soap & Glory – Pom Pom #30in30


Is this not a thing anymore??? I have consistently pulled Pom Pom out to wear for years and so I wanted to include it in this series but there are 2 things I should have checked first. 1. that I hadn’t already featured it – see this 2014 post – and 2. that it’s actually still available – and it appears that it is not.


I feel extra terrible about that last fact since my review is to be glowing! Looking online at swatches it appears that they have a new shade called ‘Berry Kissable’ that may compare but I haven’t seen it in person so I may be clutching at straws for you. The ‘Powder Coat’ formula however has stuck around and that’s the real star of the show. I had to triple check that these pictures (above) hadn’t been taken hours apart and not minutes apart because (and I’m sure you’ll agree) the wear was just so good.


It’s creamy and comfortable without feeling too messy for this matte lover. It’s barely even satin really but they did describe it as a matte and for those of you who are a little nervous of uber drying formulas these Powder Coat lipsticks could be exactly what you’ve been looking for. Now they’ve re-jigged their beauty line I really should make an effort to try some more of them!

    It’s a shame that the colour has been discontinued, as it’s beautiful! But you’re so right – the formula is a big key element in lipstick choice, so this post is still relevant and helpful. I’ve not tried a Soap and Glory lipstick yet, largely because my tiny local Boots only got a S&G stand a couple of years ago. I’m trying to dupe a long-since-discontinued lipstick from Lancome, before it runs out. Both for myself and for a friend who admired it. There are a couple shades that look like they might work. So far, I’ve only found matte alternatives to a more satin lipstick, so I’m eager to swatch and compare shades after reading about how nice the formula of the S&G lipstick is. Xx
