SOAP & GLORY Sexy Mother Pucker XL Extreme Plump


LIP PLUMPERS, Lips, NC20, SOAP + GLORY, Yishan | by — August 9, 2011


Brand: Soap & Glory
Range: Sexy Mother Pucker XL Extreme Plump
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Extra strength lip plumper, dubbed the “SMP-XL” that achieves “ridiculips”.
  • These claim to be stronger than the Sexy Mother Pucker Lipglosses, but I’m not so sure.  I did experience a thousand more butterflies fluttering on my lips, but the plumping effect was similar on my lips.
  • However I think this achieves a different purpose to the lipglosses, as the semi-clear formula makes it perfect for layering above matte lipstick, or chapped lips that need to be brought back to life – ASAP.
  • Although it comes with a slanted applicator, I still like using a lip brush so I don’t accidentally over apply & faint from a plumping overdose.
  • The tingling takes a few minutes to take effect, so be patient… and trust me you won’t MISS IT!
  • Verdict: If you don’t mind the butterfly-effect of this lip plumper, this is a MUST-HAVE in my opinion.  My lips are always dry and lifeless at the end of a work day & I always struggle to spruce it up before an evening function.  But one layer of these and my lips were back in business!!
Illamasqua lipsticks are known for being ultra matte & drying without lip balm.
However lip balm under lipstick can make it slide & create creasing.
 Applying the SMP-XL over it however achieves a far better result that doesn’t move the lipstick layer.
RRP: $27.96 AUD
Available in Australia at Kit Cosmetics.

SOAP & GLORY Sexy Mother™ Pucker Gift Set


LIP GLOSS, LIP PLUMPERS, SOAP + GLORY, Yishan | by — November 8, 2010


Brand: Soap & Glory
Range: Sexy Mother™ Pucker Gift Set
Shades: Baby Doll (Pink), Half Naked (Shimmery beige), Plum Juice (plum)
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Possibly THE BEST lip plumping gloss I’ve ever tried! Even after the gloss wore off, my lips remained in their “new” shape, incredibly plump, reduced lines and smooth.  
  • Sit back & enjoy the chocolate taste of this gloss.  Shortly after applying, you’ll experience a buzz like sherbet fizzing on your lips.  Hang in there – it only lasts for a few minutes and voila! Your lips will be swelled up, lines smoothed and resculpted. 
  • Interesting fact: The plumping technology used in this gloss is like tiny dehydrated little sponges that expand upon contact with lips.
  • Allergy information: Contains wheat protein & parabens.
  • Verdict (Lip Plumping Gloss): Forget lip injectibles, all you need is daily use of MotherPucker lip gloss!
  • Verdict (Gift Set): As a gift set, these 7ml glosses are better for sharing between sisters/friends as there was little difference between the pink & plum shade.  

On pigmented lips, “Baby Doll” and “Plum Juice” looked pretty much the same.

For such a fizzy gloss, they look deceptively innocent when swatched on my arm.  
I simply had to show you the “after” pic from wearing this gloss!
 I’m seriously contemplating whether to use this gloss to prep my lips before doing future swatches, so there’s no need for lip balm which can lessen the intensity.

RRP: £17.50 GBP / $47.95 AUD

Available at Boots (UK), Harvey Nichols (UK) and Kit Cosmetics (Australia)
p.s. At time of posting, for some reason Boots is selling this higher than the RRP?!? And Kit doesn’t seem to have the gift set yet.. just individual glosses.. Oh well! (Update: This set is now available as a Christmas set in Kit stores from 8 November)
