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)!

H&M Cosmetics Haul

I went to H&M (Salmiya Branch) again in December because they were having a Buy Two Get One Free deal on cosmetics. I’ve always enjoyed H&M cosmetics because they’ve got a vast array of products and everything is so inexpensive! I’ve purchased so many of their face masks, scented wet-wipes, eyeshadow palettes, colored eyeliners, black liquid liner (which is amazing!), nail polishes, and so much more from them, in the past. In fact, I always used to purchase at least one pink-y lip gloss every single time I visited H&M. However, I stopped purchasing makeup-y bits from them because everything always looks so ratchet (severely picked over) now. Plus, I feel like they bumped up the prices. With that being said, I downloaded the AlShaya Privileges Club Application on my phone (which is supposed to tell me whenever any of the AlShaya Stores such as H&M, Victoria’s Secret, etc… are having some sort of “offer” which normally aren’t even that enticing). That’s how I found out about the Buy Two Get One Free deal on select cosmetics (not all). I wasn’t really in the mood to try anything on in the changing room so I only purchased another one of those stripe-y pajama pants, aside from all the makeup-y bits. Now on to the haulage…

Colourpop Haulage

My first order ever from Colourpop was in November 2016. I accidentally titled that haul Black Friday when it should’ve been titled Cyber Monday. I felt like I was getting a good deal that I just couldn’t pass up which is why I placed my first order with Colourpop during Cyber Monday. I put in a second order with Colourpop before the first one had even arrived, in December 2016. Once again, they were having some kind of deal going on. If you purchased $100 worth of products, you got $25 off your next purchase (coupon code to be received via e-mail a week or so after your order ships). My third order (this one) was placed in January 2017 using the coupon code I’d received from my previous order. At this point, I’d played around with some of the Colourpop stuff I’d already purchased so I had a better feel for what would work for me.

Victoria’s Secret Collective Haul

I so rarely shop at Victoria’s Secret, for varied reasons. Clothes-wise, I don’t believe they’d have anything that would fit me. That said, I’ve never actually tried anything on in their dressing room. In fact, I’ve never even so much as glanced at their clothes or lingerie, my logic being that the Victoria’s Secret Angels are all incredibly fit, long-limbed, size-zeros, whereas I am neither slim nor tall. Makeup-wise, I’ve had several bad experiences with them in the past (as a teenager). One in particular, stands out to me; when I purchased a Lip Plumper, and instead of being a clear gloss that tingles, it was a thick (yet creamy), straight up white lipstick, with a matte finish, regardless of the fact that you applied it with a doe-foot applicator, straight from the long mascara-like tube. Apparently, you were supposed to apply it as a base (underneath a lipstick or lip gloss), and it was supposed to smooth out the surface of your lips, which in turn would make them appear bigger. Victoria’s Secret were very careful with their wording on the packaging. In fact, back in the day, a lot of makeup companies used to pull all kinds of shady stunts like that, before beauty bloggers and vloggers exploded on the scene. I’ve also purchased several hair-care products from them and was always disappointed. For instance, when I purchased a scented mousse, it was so sticky it made my hair stick together as well as stick to my scalp. I wanted volume in my hair but instead the mousse gave me a bad hair day (sticky, stringy, and flat). What’s worse was it was a floral-scent (no testers)! Scent-wise, they had such a huge selection of perfumes, body mists, and whatnot, that I was always overwhelmed, and never knew where to even begin.

MAC Little Miss Mischief Vamplify

Be seduced by our most dramatic lip gloss yet. Loaded with high-powered pigments that hug lips in shades that glisten with a delicious shine, one swipe of Vamplify loads lips with attitude as a combination of lush natural oils polish with impeccable, moisturizing colour. Never a tease, the glossy colour wears comfortably for hours, for a look that comes on strong and doesn’t let go.

The Vamplify Collection (released in Fall 2015) consisted of 17 Vamplify Lipglosses and 12 Pro Longwear Lip Pencils to match. Every item in this collection retailed for $20.00 a pop. Right off the bat, these strongly reminded me of the Kissable Lipcolours from the Peacocky Collection (reviewed here).
