Review: Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick from Soap & Glory

I'm always on the lookout for a new lippy. My "Cool Aunt Kat" from LA was recently in town for my baby shower and she shares my obsession with beauty products. While she was in town she clued me into a lip crayon from a brand I had never really explored.

Soap & Glory was founded in 2006 by Marcia Kilgore, Founder of world-famous Bliss Spa and both brands are known for their quality and tongue-in-cheek product names like Fat Girl Slim and the product I'll review here, Sexy Mother Pucker lip gloss. The packaging for Sexy Mother Pucker is similar to Clinique's Chubby Stick and comes in three shades.

These go on VERY lightly, even with a heavy application, so I chose the darkest shade, Plum Jam. I do wish they had one with a bit more pigment but they are still very pretty.

Because this goes on so lightly it's easy to apply without a mirror and the silky smooth texture is more chapstick-like than glossy. There is no stickiness or gloppiness (Is that a word? I guess it is now...) to contend with so this is great on-the-go. I keep it handy when I'm out to eat so I can reapply throughout the meal without being "that girl" who's reapplying lipgloss every 5 minutes.

This is very moisturizing thanks to the Hyaluronic Acid but I didn't necessarily notice any "plumping" as it claims. My lips look nice and shiny without any obnoxious glitter but I'm always skeptical of lip plumping claims. This one does have some peptides in it so with continued use it may help build up some collagen.

In general I really like this product for everyday use. It looks lovely on and provides that "natural but better" look we all strive for. It would be great to keep at the office for a polished but professional look.

My only real issue is that this is more of a daytime product but there's no SPF in it. I still find myself reaching for my beloved Fresh Lip Sugar in Berry a lot during the day because of the SPF 15 it provides and at night I usually want a darker, more dramatic look.

UPDATE: So since I wrote this review I've become more and more obsessed with this lippy. It's the perfect texture that moisturizes without being sticky. It's become my go-to product everyday and I'm even contemplating getting one or two more to have one in each bag.
