Ah summer. In come the too short-shorts, the floral tea dresses and the ‘barely anything there’ makeup looks. However, I’m not one of those girls who sits idol and waits until winter to uncover my love for drama and sparkles. If it was acceptable to wear sparkles – other than the subtle pressed glitter in my Naked 2 and Smokey Eye pallats – I would. 24/7. Therefore, who cares if it’s summer? Gimme sparkles.
I’m more of a ‘bold eye, nude lip’ kinda chick – pretty much because I can never find a lipstick or a lipgloss which makes me ‘wow’, or make me look in the mirror and say “huh, your lips don’t look like plastic surgery gone wrong!”. I’ve got very full, pointed lips – which means I usually shy away from anything which will make them even more prominent than they already are.
However, I have found a saving grace, incorporating my love for subtlety lips and sparkles – the infamous ‘Sexy Mother Pucker’ lipgloss, from Soap & Glory.
If you’re a high-street warrior, then you know exactly why Soap & Glory products are worth the hype. As I’ve previously said, I’m more of a dramatic eye/eyeliner type, which means nothing to extreme on the lips. However, a set of five 4ml Sexy Mother Pucker lipgloss practically fell into my hands from the S&G stand… And how could I say no to such pretty packaging?
The set comes with five, 4ml in: ‘Plumsup‘, ‘Bare Enough‘, ‘Candy Queen‘, ‘Nudestar‘ and ‘Spun Sugar‘.
As a sparkle horder, ‘Sugar Spun’ is my favourite out of the set.
For those who are in the dark – like I was – about Sexy Mother Pucker lipgloss, Soap & Glory have created a shiny lipgloss which is bursting with Superfill Lip Pumping Spheres (which leave your lips with strong, tingling sensations – essentially feeling your lips are taking over your face) as well as Lipswell Natural Plant Oil Infusion. Basically – they make your lips feel fantastic, full of life, and ready to shamelessly pout.
The full-size version of the Sexy Mother Pucker lipgloss comes in a 7ml bottle, and is priced at a fair £9. Considering a bareMinerals lipgloss will set you back £13, the Soap & Glory price comes out on top.
If, like me, you struggle with your lips but don’t want to leave them naked – then Soap & Glory’s Sexy Mother Pucker lipgloss is for you.
If you’ve ever tried, loved or hated lipgloss – let me know in the comments!
