Soap and Glory The Mask Force Review and Demo

Soap & Glory Sheet Masks
Yes, you heard it right, Soap and Glory have just released a selection of sheet masks, named The Mask Force Beauty Mask-Haves! This for me is possibly one of Soap and Glory's most exciting launches to date, so today I wanted to share with you everything you need to know about the mask collection...
Before I give you the 411 on each mask, I do recommend you watch the demo video I've linked above so you can get a feel for how these apply and what results you can expect from each.
Soap and Glory Miracle Moisture Mask
- Leave on for 20-30 Mins
The Speed Plump is the only gel mask that comes in two parts. It's infused with Hyaluronic Acid and Soap & Glory's Pink Flower Power, as well as various other skin quenching ingredients. This claims to help smooth and hydrate the skin and it's especially good for dry or dehydrated skin.

Initially when I pulled this out the packet, I noticed how well saturated this was. It's also a little weighty compared to the conventional tissue mask.

Upon application I found this to be a bit fiddly and the bottom did slide off my face at first, however, once I got the hang of this I found it to be a great pick me up mask that's both refreshing and gorgeous smelling. Afterwards, my skin felt super soft, smooth and hydrated.

This would be a perfect mask to take on a long-haul flight also.

Soap and Glory Pore Refining Mask
- Leave on for 15-20 Mins
Next is the pore-refining tissue mask. This one helps to refine pores and absorb excess oils, which is ideal if you have oily or combination skin. The mask also contains mint and camomile to help both refresh and cool the skin.

Again this was super saturated and you could definitely smell the strong aroma of the mint and eucalyptus.

Upon application, this felt intensely cooling on the skin. Afterwards, it helped make my skin feel and look more refreshed and refined.

Soap and Glory Radiance Boosting Mask
- Leave on for 15-20 Mins
Moving onto the radiance boosting mask which is infused with a number of brightening ingredients to help bring your skin back to life. This is especially targeted as a party recovery mask for dull or lacklustre skin.

Upon application, my skin felt immediately refreshed and towards the end, I even felt a slight cooling sensation too.

Afterwards, my skin felt lovely and revived and if you like you can also take the leftover serum in the packet down onto your neck as well.

Soap and Glory De Clog Mask
- Leave on for 20-25 Mins
The last mask in the collection is a peel-off mask, which as Soap and Glory put it, is 'for lifting out the gunk and junk!' This mask also comes with two pods for two uses as well as a spatula to apply the mask with.

Be warned this is a tad messy to apply and so I do advise doing this over a sink, with a towel on top to protect the sink.

It's recommended you focus this mask mostly on the t-zone or any specific problem areas, but I did actually end up applying this to the whole face as you do get a generous amount in one capsule.

Now, this is a peel off mask and as you can probably imagine this was pretty eye-watering to pull off afterwards! However, this definitely did a noticeably great job at fading down my blemishes and spots. The only downfall is this is a drying mask and so I would suggest replenishing the skin afterwards with a hydrating moisturiser or oil.

Soap and Glory Puffy Eye Attack
- Leave on for 20-30 Mins
Last but not least is the gel eye masks that claim to revitalise and refresh tired or puffy eyes.

Inside you get one pair of eye patches for one use only. I loved these as they were nice and thick and smelt of cucumbers. On the eyes they felt cooling, however, I think they would be even more refreshing if you put them in the fridge prior to application.

Afterwards, my eyes definitely felt and looked brighter. Again these would be ideal for a long haul flight or early start.

So guys, there you have it. I hope you found this helpful! Overall I was rather impressed with not only the number of masks Soap & Glory have released but also the variation of masks to cater for a range of different skincare needs and wants. And with these being an altogether accessible and affordable price point, I recommend at least picking up one of these beauties to try out!

Product Empties and Products I Regret Buying Edit No17

Product Empties and Product Regrets 
I cannot believe this is my 17th product empties and products regret video now. I actually love doing these for you guys so you can truly see if a product was a hit or a miss after having giving it a real good go. I also try not to show the same product twice as it would be boring to hear me talk about the same product time and time again, so with that being said here's the product empty edit number seventeen...

Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lipstick Swatches and Review

Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour
The Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Lipsticks are the newest launch to hit the shelves here in the UK. With an impressive 15 shades these certainly are a stand out collection, so here are my thoughts...
These retail for £5.99 each for 5.5ml of product. The collection is available from Superdrug, Boots, Feel Unique and Ulta in the US.

Here are the 15 shades that make up the Stay Matte Liquid Lipstick Collection,
Latte to Go - NUDE
Be My Baby - NUDE
Moca - NUDE
Coral Sass - CORAL
Pink Blink - NUDE PINK
Pink Bliss - PINK
Blush - PINK
Rose & Shine - PINK/RED
Heartbeat - PINK
Fire Starter - RED
Plum This Show - DEEP RED
Midnight - DEEP RED
Blue Iris - BLUE
Shadow - GREY
Pitch Black - BLACK
The packaging is compact and the perfect size to pop in your bag when you're on the go and I also love the fact that you can see the colours clearly through the tube. Inside you'll find a lovely long and thin doe foot applicator.
These have a lovely lightweight, mousse-like texture which is very similar to the Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquids. I tested out 8 shades and found them to be incredibly rich and pigmented. The only one I thought needed a deeper lip liner underneath was Latte To Go as this is an extremely pale nude.
I have to say I was very impressed with how long these did last as they do claim to last up to 12 hours. However, while they are very long-wearing I wouldn't say they last a good 12 hours... I found them to fade down towards the late afternoon, which is when re-application would be needed, but overall they were pretty good going! 

The other thing worth noting is because these are matte, they are a little drying too, but I think this comes with the matte lip territory.
One tip I would give you is, when you go to take these off, it would be wise to use a micellar water or something oil based as once these are on, they are on!

Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Blush 
Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Pink Bliss
Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Heartbeat
Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip First Starter
Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Shadow
Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Pitch Black
Overall Thoughts
Overall the Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lipsticks are not only a great price point but they are one of the best matte liquid lipstick formulas to be released within the drugstore over the past year.

Admittedly these are a little drying, but weighing up the fact that they are super pigmented, vibrant, easy to apply and super long-wearing makes them a true winner in my eyes. Which is your favourite shade from the collection?

I award the Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lipsticks a 4.8 out of 5
