Review: Soap & Glory Sexy Motherpucker Lipgloss

One of the items I received in my Soap & Glory Best of All set before Christmas was a Sexy Mother Pucker lipgloss in the shade 'Punch Bowl'. It was, in fact, the only item I wasn't super excited about, as I hate lipglosses as a rule. Nonetheless, I decided that since I love Soap & Glory so much, it must be worth a try. You may think this review is a little biased by my lipgloss hatred, but I did try to give a balanced view...

In the tube, I love the shade - a good start, surely!? The packaging is standard lipgloss attire, a clear plastic tube with a screw cap which unscrews to reveal a doefoot applicator. The lipgloss itself is thick and gloopy, which made me doubtful. Sure enough, it goes onto the lips very thickly, and has a peculiar smell which I really dislike. I can't really describe it but I know I don't like it.

Once on, it gives a good amount of colour with a glossy finish, and the colour is true to the tube, but it is intensely sticky - everything I hate in a lipgloss. I do think it lives up to its lip-plumping claims and I can definitely feel a tingling sensation in my lips, which last for about fifteen minutes after applying. Sadly, that's also as long as the colour lasts - I'd really hope for longer after I've put up with the smell and the stickiness. Unfortunately, even after the colour has faded, my lips still feel distinctly tacky.

[Other products used: L'Oreal Studio Secrets Anti-Shine Mattifying Primer; Miss Sporty Matte Perfect Stay Foundation in Shade 02 'Light'; Collection Sheer Loose Powder in Shade 02 'Barely There'; Jemma Kidd Palette in 'Rose' (eyeshadow & blush); Body Shop Cheek Colour in Shade 1 'Blush Pink']

All in all, this was not a good experience for me. I keep trying to use this lipgloss, I keep trying to like it, but I just don't. It's not something I'll repurchase and unless you're a lover of products that glue your lips together, it's not something I'd recommend either. Sorry Soap & Glory, this just doesn't do it for me!
Have you tried the Sexy Mother Pucker lipglosses? Did you get on with them any better than I did?

  2. That is a really pretty colour shame you find it so sticky! I used to wear these glosses when I was at school they used to be so popular but I hate the tingly feel! x

  4. Oh God this stuff. I love to hate it. I really do hate how tingly it is and it makes me want to wipe it off straight away, though I kind of like that hatred. But I agree with you, the stickiness is horrible. A big put off.
