review: soap & glory sexy mother pucker;


I'm sure I don't need to mention at this stage how big a S&G fan I am, and these glosses are no exception.  I've read/heard mixed reviews about these, so I thought I'd throw in my own two cents!


Let's get the negatives out of the way first, shall we?  These smell horrendous.  Although you can't smell them when they're applied (thankfully!), the smell from the tube can be really off-putting.  They're also quite sticky, which is a big no-no for a lot of people.  However, the only thing that I really disliked about these glosses is the tingling tongue/mouth if I was unfortunate enough to lick my lips when it was freshly applied.  Very unpleasant indeed!

Now, onto the positives!  First of all, I have tiny lips, so the "LIPSWELL™ Volume Boost Technology" in these really sold them to me.  I haven't noticed a huge difference, but a little is better than none!  It does tingle quite a bit, which is expected from a plumping gloss, but not so much that it's uncomfortable.  Second, these are so moisturising!  The formula is very thick (which some people might see as a negative), but it sinks in nicely, and I found it worked wonders on keeping my lips smooth and soft   Sexy Mother Pucker comes in a great range of colours, too, from a dark neutral to a shimmering pink, and it's also available as a clear gloss.  The glosses are quite sheer, but they do give a lovely hint of colour. 


Overall:  I love Sexy Mother Pucker!  I mean, I'm not a big fan of lipgloss in general, but I own three of these!  I will definitely repurchase these, maybe some of the other colours, when I start to run out.

  5. I love the way these make my lips almost one-third times larger. But despite experimenting with shades, I can never get colour from them so I use them as a top glossy coat.

  12. Hi just found your blog! I really like the peachy coloured one that I've tried before, but definitely think they are quite sticky - however, if I use it for a night out or something, I'll just put up with it haha! Probably not a lipgloss I'd use on a daily basis though. Anyways, great post :)
