What Soap & Glory Claims :
Fasten your seatbelts! It’s Super-Colour™ Sexy Mother Pucker™ with SUPERFILL™ Lip Plumping Spheres and LIPSWELL™ Volume Boost Technology.
Britain’s hottest selling lip plumping gloss, Soap & Glory’s bestselling Original Formula SEXY MOTHER PUCKER includes ingenious PLUMPING MICROSPHERES that explode in volume up to 10x when they come in contact with water (they’re like tiny, dehydrated little sponges that expand when they get wet) and an exclusive microcirculation-stimulating extract to visibly enhance lip volume. Amazing. Addictive.
Polybutene, Paraffinum Liquidum (Mineral Oil), Glycerin, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Mica, VP/Hexadecene Copolymer, Silica, Isopropyl Myristate, Parfum, Spilanthes Acmella Flower Extract, Stevioside, Propylene Glycol, Aqua (Water), BHT, Limonene, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Methylparaben, Sodium Hyaluronate, Benzyl Alcohol, Propylene Carbonate, CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), CI 15850 (Red 7 Lake), CI 15850 (Red 6), CI 77499 (Iron Oxides)
My Thoughts :
I absolutely love the packaging of this product, Soap & Glory is always a step ahead in terms of packaging. All the products look so attractive!
Coming to the actual product. It smells delicious! Like Nutella. Hazelnutty-Chocolaty.
But this is the stickiest gloss I have ever used. Sticky to the point that your lips will feel stuck together and your hair will stick to it too.
The company claims 10x more volume which is false according to me. I have thin(ish) lips and I am always looking for good lip plumpers but this one unfortunately disappointed me!
The gloss however is intensely pigmented. I think this is the only shade that is the most pigmented in this range of glosses from Soap & Glory. It looks absolutely beautiful on the lips. The color is so beautiful that sometimes I use it to nude out some of my other bright colors! Even though it is so sticky.
It leaves a slight tingly feeling on the lips. Nothing too harsh or unbearable. It feels like very tiny pins and needles poking at your lips.
I expected a lot from this product due to the high claims! But it did not live up to my expectations!
You can see the difference for yourself.
The GOOD :
1. Very intensely pigmented
2. Smells amazing
3. Beautiful packaging.
The COULD BE BETTER :
1. Super sticky
2. Does not do near to what it claims. Barely plumped my lips to 2x.
Will I recommend and repurchase?
No. However I do want to try their gloss sticks! 🙂
