Soap & (even more) Glorious

Our friend Marcia Kilgore could be forgiven, occasionally, for putting her feet up.
     First she created Bliss Spas (and products), bringing us the Oxygen Facial.  Then Remède skincare.  Next up:  Soap & Glory.  Oh, and FitFlops.  (Maybe they're why she never has to put her feet up, come to think of it.)
     Now, launching into many Boots stores nationwide (the roll-out starts this week) is Soap & Glory Cosmetics:  a collection of high-performance make-up at ludicrously low prices, considering the quality of the products.  Beauty Bible (cue rubbing of fingernails on lapel) was literally first to tweet about the range last week, having nipped into the preview ahead of the pack.
     We already have some favourite products.  Smoulder Kohl, for instantly smokey eyes.  Glow All Out, an ever-so-slightly shimmering universally flattering shade of soft pink blush, which promises to enliven even the most hungover pallor.  And Super Colour Fabulipstick, which we'd love for the name alone, but have also been seduced by the soft shea butter and monoi texture, and the so-wearable trio of shades.
     As usual, the packaging's fab - and fun - and the names, as ever, put a smile on our lips.
     Keep up the good work, Marcia.  It's glorious stuff.
