Review: Sexy Mother Pucker











I've never been a fan of lipglosses at all. I find that they don't provide much colour on the lip, they're too sticky and slimy and they have hardly any staying power. I always stray away from lipglosses and go straight to the lipsticks. And with how this product has turned out, I won't been changing my ways any time soon!


I have this Sexy Mother Pucker lipgloss by Soap & Glory in the colour 'Pink Apricot'

This was such a disappointment for me. I have owned and do own many other Soap & Glory products and they're all amazing. However this, I just really don't like it.

First, the colour. The packaging makes the gloss look matte which I like. But the actual gloss is just ordinary shiny shiny. The colour is an orange based pinkish peach. I love the colour in the tube and on a swatch, however on the lips, not so much.
For me, I think the natural pigment in my lips cancelled out the orange tones and just came out a pale peachy pink. So, not a great colour payoff for myself.
Meh.

The consistency of this lipgloss is awful! It's so sticky and heavy, I didn't enjoy applying it or having it on my lips at all. Also, it has that horrible tingly stuff that is supposed to "plump up your lips". Yeah right.
It just felt uncomfortable and I felt like I was being stung all over my lips. :( Maybe it'd be worth it if it actually worked?? 

And finally, the smell. Every other Soap & Glory product I've ever laid my hands on smells so good that I could eat it! But, yep, you guessed it. This smells awful. I'm not sure what it is about it, I just don't like it. And especially since your mouth is right below your nose, you want the stuff you're slapping on them to smell good! Definitely been let down by this product. 

As for staying power, I can't comment on that as I haven't left it on my lips long enough thanks to the annoying tingling. 


So, in conclusion, this lipgloss is a no no.
Horrible consistency, not a great colour payoff, and uncomfortable to wear.

However, I'm sure there are people out there who love this product. It's just not for me at all. 

I'm still tempted to delve into the lipgloss world so give me some good recommendations? As this has made me doubt all lipglosses around the world!

Tut tut Soap & Glory. You've let me down.
