The cheeky bath and body brand Soap and Glory has recently released a new lip product–Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick ($16). Lip crayons are more popular than pics of of Kim K’s baby bump this season and Soap and Glory hit on a winner!
The “Buzz free” formula promises fuller, plumper lips without the tingle or burn along with collagen-boosting peptides. The texture is smooth, creamy and non-sticky with a easy balm-like feel and a shiny, glossy finish. These are meant to be sheer but they still have good pigment—with 3-4 swipes you get a nice color payoff. There is a scent that’s supposed to be vanilla, I think it smells like something stronger but I can’t put my finger on it–custard maybe? Anyway, the scent goes away almost immediately. Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Sticks are very hydrating and comfortable to wear and do not dry out the lips.
There are three colors available, Plum Jam, a pink berry, Fuschia-Ristic, vibrant bright pink and Nudist, a nude peach. Nudist is described as a beige pink but on my pale lips it pulls more peach. Most nudes wash me out or make me look like the walking dead, however Nudist is very flattering. There is no shimmer or glitter, just a high shine wash of sheer color. I think that makes Nudist a great shade for a natural, casual look.
As for the plumping effect, I didn’t notice any. True the glossy finish helps lips look fuller but for me that’s all there is to it. Typical of most glosses, these last only about 2 hours before you need to reapply.
- Lovely balm-like texture
- Sheer glossy finish
- No Parabens or Phthalates
- No feathering or bleeding –perfect for over 40′s!
- A bit pricey–I’d love it if they were more around the $12 range
- The color range is limited–give us more shades S & G!
Bottom Line: Nudist is a great everyday shade for me that doesn’t dry out my lips and even better does NOT bleed into lip lines!
