Soap & Glory Half Naked Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Plumping Gloss

Fasten your seat belts! It’s Super-Colour Sexy Mother Pucker! With SUPERFILL™ Lip Plumping Spheres – that swell up to TEN TIMES when you apply them – and LIPSWELL™ Volume Boost Technology, Sexy Mother Pucker adds serious plumping power to your pout. Wear on its own for a subtle (but sexy) shine, or layer over your favourite lipstick.

This is the first makeup-y item I’ve ever tried from Soap & Glory but I don’t think it’ll be the last. I believe I purchased it from Drugstore.com/Beauty.com (same shopping cart when you check-out). Their Mother Pucker Gloss come in several different shades and flavors. The main reason I got this particular shade called Half Naked was because it had a buttered popcorn flavor (as we’ve already established, I enjoy novelty products, and anything that tastes or smells like popcorn definitely fits the bill)!

As you can (hopefully) see by the swatch, Half Naked is a dark nude shade with a creme finish (no shimmer) which makes it perfect for layering over lipsticks or even on its own with nothing but a lipliner. Depending on the undertones of your lips, this can pull little more terracotta on some people and pinky-brown nude on others. With that being said, the Lipgloss in the Mother Pucker range can be quite thick and sticky (so annoying), almost on par with MAC’s Lipglass. By that same account, these are extremely shiny. It might be off-putting to some but I personally enjoy a mirror-shine finish, on occasion. They are also quite pigmented as well. Most worthy of note is the fact that this is not just a regular gloss but also a Lip Plumping one at that. It’s not a slight tingling either. You will definitely be able to feel it working. Some might even find it a bit uncomfortable (with beauty comes pain… or something like that). I didn’t love the “Lip Plumping” sensation but I didn’t mind it either. Generally, shiny glosses can create the illusion of fuller lips but it’s more of subtle effect. You want bee-stung lips? Go get fillers. Don’t expect miracles from a $10 Lipgloss (lower your expectations and be realistic, yeah?). That said, I actually enjoy Lip Plumpers (I’m well aware that my slightly swollen lips are a result of some sort of irritant, typically cinnamon and the effects are not only very very subtle but also temporary). I’m not expecting a miracle. It’s just… fun! As I mentioned earlier, there are other shades and subsequently other flavors but I chose this one in particular because of the “Buttered Popcorn” flavor but sadly could not detect the scent nor the flavor… Unless by buttered popcorn they meant more of a savory flavor rather than a sweet flavor? In any case, this is a nice gloss (if a bit… overly sticky).

Half Naked Mother Pucker Lip Plumping Gloss is the gloss I mentioned in my earlier Soap & Glory post (here). I’m assuming the name Mother Pucker is based on the popularity that Nars Orgasm Blush garnered. I have the sense of humor of a twelve-year-old and I absolutely adore tongue-in-cheek names and such but even I was rolling my eyes at the name Mother Pucker. At least the outer packaging is cute (if a bit misleading lawl). Also, I appreciate the fact that this came with a doe-foot applicator. Overall, this isn’t a particular unique gloss but I’m enjoying using it up. I wouldn’t repurchase it because there are other less sticky glosses in the exact same shade as well as other lip plumping glosses with a more obvious “plumping” effect. I’m definitely interested in trying out some of the other Soap & Glory makeupy bits (just not this one) in the future.

Speaking of which, I updated my original Soap & Glory post to include the Fab Pore Hot Cloth Cleanser because I didn’t feel like it deserved a whole post of its own.
