If you know me, or have ever stepped into my bathroom, you’d know how much of a Soap & Glory ADDICT I am! I was lucky enough to receive a couple of their cosmetics range. Now, I have to be honest with you, I barely walk past their cosmetics in Boots, so didn’t really know what to expect – apart from that it would have a LUSH smell!
Firstly, I absolutely LOVE all S&G packaging. It’s really funky & original. They always have the best names (like this lip gloss) for their products as well as the text on their boxes, &/or even the product itself. This is CANDY GLOSS.
The packaging is nice & sturdy APART from the actual head of the gloss applicator. It’s a little too flimsy for me – I feel like I’m going to break it! This is what S&G say about the ‘Mother Pucker’…
I’m not sure what ‘Superfill Microsphere Technology’ is but claims that your lips will expand 10X bigger!!
I’m loving that there is natural oils in here! I was expecting my lips to be moisturised & plumped up ready to POUT! Here’s what I got…
You can tell that this baby started working in mere seconds of applying it!! This is what it’s like from the side…
As you can tell they are FULLER. It seems to have filled all the little lines in my lips out I mean, my lips are quite full naturally, so I wasn’t expecting drastic results. However… I prefer my lips with a bit of Candy Gloss on it It smells like cocoa butter to me which is another plus point, as I love a bit of cocoa butter! It’s super moisturising & not sticky like the MAC glosses. It also lasts for about 3ish hours which is great staying power & FAB for a night out
I wouldn’t say my lips are 10x bigger though. A down side of this gloss would be the TINGLING factor, for me. Once applied your lips start to tingle, pretty much like Carmex. I thought It would go away after about 10/15 minutes, but I could feel it for about an hour in! After about 15 minutes my lips didn’t get any bigger.
I’m loving the little GLITTER undertones of the gloss though. I’d wear this UNDER lip stick as it doesn’t work as well when you’ve already got product on top. But there’s no harm in topping it up.
I’ve tried ‘Lip Injection’ by Too Faced & that stang my lips & made them look a little red (maybe I have sensitive skin?) but I prefer this, for sure!
Overall this product is a HIT for me. I had never thought of using a lip plumper but hey, new year, new products Putting the tingling aside, this product is personally very good, especially for only £8! They have some gorgeous colours in this range (plum, peach, nude & clear) which I’m looking to try out! I’m thinking to get the set of 3 as it’s great value for money (you’re practically getting one for free!) YAY
If you’re not sure where to get these from head on down to your local Boots or Harvey Nichols. Online retailers ASOS stock them too! If you want a little nose around the Soap & Glory website click HERE. Once I get the other colours, I’ll be sure to let you know how I found them I hope they’re super pigmented
P.S – Have you tried any Soap & Glory cosmetics? What’s your FAVOURITE? I’ve got one product that I’ve been using pretty much every day which I’m thinking to review soon for you lovely ladies
