Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Mini Gloss Stick ($6) are one of several new Soap & Glory Makeup products that launched here in the US for Spring 2016 (although they have made an appearance in the UK already in early January).
Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Mini Gloss Sticks are available in five shade selections and promise 3D Volume with a creamy, moisturizing formula that adds plump to lips without the tingle and shine.
I’m hopeful that these new Mini Gloss Sticks do not take the place of the original Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Sticks because I found my perfect Summer nude lip color in those sticks and may need to stock up if they are axing that line in place of the new mini version!
Considering how these are packaged so very different I honestly didn’t expect Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Mini Gloss Stick to be anything like the original formula and I was right. These weigh in at 0.05 oz versus the original at 0.09 oz and come packaged in twist up barrel. Unfortunately, they do not swivel all the way down which completely annoys me as when removing and replacing the cap you have to be careful not to slice off a chunk of the product. They are shaped and look like a lipstick due to their slanted tip.
I think the name can be misleading as these aren’t really glossy in the least. I think what I expected as a thin, slick formula but what I got was a thicker, balmy texture that has a sheen finish. I tried two of the five shades one of which had excellent color pay off and the other was a bit sheerer and nude. They have a light vanilla flavor and fragrance that should be too disturbing to sensitive users.
I wouldn’t say these added volume to my lips nor did they make my lips appear fuller. All in all I got a nice bit of color from them with a light balminess that was pleasant enough to wear but wasn’t terribly hydrating through the wear of four hours.
They are fun if you need a quick slip of color and go but aside from that I don’t think Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Mini Gloss Sticks offer much else.
