Soap and Glory Girl-O-Whirl Review + GIVEAWAY! (NOW CLOSED)

I actually got this Soap and Glory Girl'O-Whirl Gift Set for christmas and was planning on putting a review up not soon after. However my Mum surprised me with with another Girl-O-Whirl gift set she got free as part of a deal when she bought one for me. She thought I might like to give it away on my blog and I for one think that's an excellent idea so I'm doing just that! 

First though just a little info on this set, it contains a 'bundle of bestselling beauty stuff' from Soap and Glory. It contains 6 'LIDSTUFF' eyeshadows, 6 SUPERCOLOURFABULIPSTICK shades, THICK & FAST Super Volume Mascara, SEXY MOTHER PUCKER GLOSS STICK in Nudist, GLOW ALL OUT Luminizing Face Powder, SOLAR POWDER Multi Shade Bronzer, a double ended eyeshadow brush, a double ended lip brush and a blusher brush. Phew, that's a whole load of products, all of which is contained in a handy zip up case with mirror. 

Considering this is a gift set, the eyeshadows in this are really great, extremely pigmented and glide on like a dream. It's certainly convinced me to try more of Soap and Glory's LIDSTUFF eyeshadows! All the shadows are matte which makes a nice change from a lot of glitter. I think matte shades are generally easier to work with and the colours are all really wearable, well maybe not the blue but if you're feeling daring then why not!

I'm really impressed with the SUPERCOLOURFABULIPSTICK lipsticks as well, again all very pigmented and a really nice mix of pink shades. They're very creamy and moisturising on the lips too, they really make me want to try the full size product of these too! In fact I think it's a great way of deciding which full size lipsticks you want to buy. 

The THICK & FAST Mascara is a bestseller for Soap and Glory and it's not hard to see why! It's one of those mascara that's really easy to apply, you can apply it quickly and not worry about clumps first thing in the morning when you're still half asleep! The brush is big and bristly, the best size for applying just the right amount of product to your lashes. It leaves you with long, thick lashes for a really natural look.

My favourite product from the Girl-O-Whirl Gift Set has to be the SEXY MOTHER PUCKER GLOSS STICK in 'Nude'. Not just because it has a cheeky name but it's the perfect lip crayon to apply during the day for a natural look. I've been using it most days mainly because it's easy to apply quickly before I walk out the door and compliments any makeup look. It's not hugely pigmented, it's definitely supposed to be more of a gloss than a lipstick which is ideal because it'll suit everyone!

Finally in the set we have the SOLAR POWDER Multi Shade Bronzer and the GLOW ALL OUT Luminizing Face Powder. Both these powders are hugely popular so it's great to see them included in this gift set. SOLAR POWDER is a bronzer/highlighter which gives a really natural glow to the skin without being too glittery. It can be used as a highlighter on darker skin or to contour/warm up lighter skin so it really is ideal for anyone to use. GLOW ALL OUT is a gorgeous highlighter which gives a real luminous look to the skin. I love both products as I have very fair skin so find it difficult to use bronzers and highlighters without it looking too dirty or glittery and both these powder are excellent for creating a really natural look.
