Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Crayons Review



As Valentine's Day is less than a week away (got your pressie requests in yet!?) I thought it was the perfect opportunity to talk about my current favourite kissable-lip product. As a Christmas pressie from the lovely people at Soap & Glory, I was sent a little tin trio of their 'Sexy Mother Pucker' gloss crayons, and after having a good couple of months to test them, I thought I'd share my thoughts!

First of all - if you aren't a fan of S&G's original 'Sexy Mother Pucker' lip glosses - never fear. I'll admit, I'm not the biggest fan of those, but these are a total game-changer. For starters, they contain the same lip-plumping formulation but without the slightly uncomfortable 'tingling' sensation the original gloss gives you, which is always a plus if you're after fuller lips. Personally, I'm not ever interested in lip-plumping products (I have big enough lips as it is) but these babies are so much more than just lip plumpers.

These gloss crayons give gorgeous, super glossy lips that are totally moisturised and nourished, whilst also giving a gorgeous colour. I was worried they'd be a tad too sheer, but after a few layers they give really good colour pay-off. The colours I was given were Bashful - a pinky nude, Fuchsia-ristic - definitely more of a coral than fuschia, and Raplumzel, a gorgeous plum shade.

Bashful
Bashful is the perfect nude-pink shade. It's probably my favourite of the three as it's the most wearable and probably the one that suits me best. I think it would suit the majority of skin tones and I've been wearing it none-stop since discovering it! 


Fuschia-ristic

Whoever came up with the name for this one certainly missed a trick, as it's definitely a coral shade - there's not a lot of fuschia going on here. It is, however, a really lovely red-fuschia that would be amazing over the summer months. 

Raplumzel
Raplumzel (BEST... NAME... EVER!) is a beautiful plummy shade that is ideal for the winter months. It's probably my least favourite of the three as I feel it's a bit of an 'older' colour, and I'd have liked it if they had gone a bit darker and deeper, and a bit more purple with this one. That being said it's a lovely colour - just personally it's not my cup of tea! 

Overall I think these gloss crayons are fab little products as they give such moisturisation and shine, without the nasty sticky feel of lipgloss. The fact they plump your lips too is a big bonus! I'm particularly looking forward to using these over the summer months, but they're great at this time of the year too as they keep your lips nice and nourished.
