Soap & Glory Thick and Fast Mascara Review

If you're a long term reader of Three Little Buhos then you'll probably know that I am a devout user of Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara. I've used it every day for months and months but when the latest tube ran out I thought it was time to try something new. A lady on Beauty Box Swaps on facebook recommended Soap and Glory's Thick and Fast to me as a good alternative so I decided to give it a go. Long story short; I love it. I think I may actually prefer it to the Max Factor option I was using. So let me show you.

Unlike a lot of Soap and Glory products, the Thick and Fast mascara comes in a pretty basic looking tube with no bells and whistles. The brush is lovely and big and picks up a nice lot of product. My one slight complaint though is that it does tend to leave a bit of excess mascara on the end of the wand but thats easily wiped off on the rim of the tube.

In this first photo I am not wearing any mascara, just a slick of eyeliner in the water line.

In this photo I have applied one coat of Thick and Fast and as you can see, my eyelashes have been lifted and curled a lot. They are also a really deep black shade which shows how pigmented the mascara is. I think they look thicker but definitely more full and coloured. As with most mascara's there is a small amount of clumping if you put several layers on, however I always finish off by giving my lashes a comb through anyway so this isn't a problem, and I've found that with this mascara there hasn't been too much of a problem anyway.
Here's my finished look, I apologize for the rabbit caught in the headlight style expression.
