Soap & Glory ‘Thick & Fast’ HD Mascara | Review

Hello again,

Although this mascara is an old favourite, for some reason I stopped using it a while ago so I could try some new mascaras. I recently came back to it as I ended up getting two for Christmas – it must’ve been a sign…

This is a really good alternative if you’re looking for something that’s better than standard drugstore mascaras but not out of budget, like the luxury brand mascaras. It’s a nice in-betweener and it’s definitely worth the money.


You can’t really tell from the photo because the difference is really subtle but the actual mascara brush has more strands on one side. One side has fewer thick strands and the other has more thin strands. So, one side better for separation and the other side better for volume. I start by using the side with less strands on as it applies the product more evenly. However, using just this side makes my eyelashes really thick so I always use the fluffier side to separate them.


I find that mascaras are usually either volumising but clumpy or volumising but not lengthening so this is the perfect in-between for me. Whilst it gives my eyelashes a lot of volume, it does it without making them clump together. It also adds a great amount of length. I sometimes find that some mascaras can make my eyelashes look too long and false, because I have quite long lashes anyway.

I will suggest using an eyelash curler and then a primer with any mascara. I find it stops my eyelashes from clumping and separates my eyelashes evenly before I’ve even put any mascara on. This mascara works really well with my NYX Big and Loud Primer, which I featured on my blog not too long ago.



I’ve used a lot of mascaras in the same price range as this one but there hasn’t been one that volumises and lengthens as well as this one without going over the top. I usually end up using a combination of two or three mascaras to get my eyelashes how I want them and it honestly takes me forever. However, when I use this one, it literally takes five minutes.


You can find the mascara in Boots for £10.50 if you wanted to try it. They also still stock the original version, the Thick and Fast Mascara, if you wanted to try that one first. There’s a lot of difference between the new and old ones but they both work really well. If you wanted to try both of them, Boots are also doing an offer on Soap and Glory products so you can buy one product and get another one for half the price…

As always, thank you for reading.

  1. Honestly mascara is such a staple for me in my makeup routine! It would probably be something I needed to have every time even if I wasn’t wearing some other item. Always a must! So this review was great! My favorite rn is the Legendary Lashes by Charlotte Tilbury. Absolutely perfect!

  2. I may have to try the new one I could not get on with the old version it irritated my eyes and the brush was horrible with my eyelashes I felt I had to really work it into my eyelashes 😦 but your review has convinced me to give it another go!! Xx

  3. Mascaras are confusing. I finally figured that most are the same, they just change the shape of the brush, but there are a few that are the exception and work well. Looks like you found one.

  4. What a great review! The mascara looks amazing on you! Good to know for when I need a refill on mascara! Xx Doran @HauteBeautyGuide

  5. Thanks for this great review. I’m makeup challenged so it was night to hear of a mascara that doesn’t leave a clumpy mess! I’m adding it to my list this week.

  6. I love soap & glory products but their mascaras always seem so HUGE?! Would you say the wand on this is larger than normal wands? I remember when I got one from them not that long ago and I literally poked my eye out every single time I applied it. Or maybe I have small eyes haha! It looks so lovely on your lashes tho! x
