Review: Soap & Glory Smoulder Kohl Waterproof Eyeliner in Superblack (dupe for MAC Smoulder Eye Kohl)

 Soap & Glory Smoulder Kohl Waterproof Eyeliner in Superblack (1.2g, £5)

I picked up this eyeliner last weekend after reading Sam's review.   She mentioned that it was a dupe for MAC's Eye Kohl in Smoulder and that it lasted when used on the waterline.  I HAD to try this out for myself!

Soap & Glory's Smoulder Kohl is simply amazing for four main reasons.

Firstly it comes with its own little pencil sharpener attached at the end and the sharpener is actually really good.  I've lost count of the times I've bought an eyeliner pencil like this and the sharpener has been of such rubbish quality that's mostly unusable (yeah I'm looking at you ELF!).

Secondly, the pigmentation and texture is incredible and it definitely rivals anything you'll find from a high-end brand.  It comes in two shades, a brown and a black, and the black (aptly named 'Superblack') is an amazing true black.  The texture is creamy and soft (anyone else hate hard eyeliner pencils? I know I do!), enabling you to do a quick smokey eye if desired.

Thirdly, it really does last on the waterline.  I find that so many eyeliners disappoint in this area, so I was more than impressed when it lasted around 5-6 hours on the waterline.  Most disappear on me in less than an hour!

And last but not least, the price.  All of the above for just a fiver?  Amazing budget beauty buy.  Soap & Glory Smoulder Kohl, I hereby promote you to my HG make-up bag!


I did a quick comparison with my usual Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner - UD on the left and S&G on the right.  As you can see the S&G comes out blacker and the photo was taken after around 2-3 hours of wear.

What's your favourite eyeliner?  Have you tried this one?

  4. This has been my go-to kohl liner since it came out, I think I've been through two pencils! I love that it's super black, I only need to re-apply once on a night out and I'm good. Will continue to repurchase until the cows come home!

  10. I've normally just stuck to Rimmel for Kohl eye liners and been pretty happy, but lately they never seem to last as long, perhaps they've changed the formula?
    I want to give this a go and see how it is :)

    1. I've heard another blogger mention that they've changed the formula of the Rimmel ones (and a few other Rimmel products) recently. This one is amazing :) x

  11. Wow, this one sounds super impressive! Especially it lasting on the waterline. I don't usually put eyeliner there as I find it closes up my eye, but times when I have, the lasting power of most I've tried has universally been rubbish. I wish this eyeliner were available here!

    1. Yeah so many just don't last on the waterline, so I'm glad this one does!
