Review: Soap And Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Lipstick in Nude Edition Satin

In a recent Boots haul post I mentioned the Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Lipstick in Nude Edition Satin in the gift set I bought. This is in their nude collection and costs £9 for the lipstick when it’s bought on its own. This has 3.5g (0.12 Oz.) of lipstick in it with a satin finish, as the name suggests.

I’ve bought a couple of their other lipsticks a while ago in different finishes, both the shine and matte styles, but not the satin so I was interested to see how it would work. I’ve not had the best luck with traditional lipsticks and staying power but I’ve been happy with the Soap and Glory ones in the past and do love a good nude lip so wanted to give this one a proper try.

Do you all hate it as much as me when they use stickers that leave marks when they’re sealing products?

I really like the Soap and Glory packaging for their lipsticks. The nude collection all have a rose gold tube, the pinks have pink and the reds a metallic red, so you can tell which collection the lipstick you’re looking at comes from. They do also have the sticker on the end saying both the name and the finish which is nice. It also helps that this is pretty much a spot on match for the colour inside as well.

The lipstick tube twists up easily but it does click into place at the top and bottom and, surprisingly, it doesn’t actually slide back into the tube when you apply pressure. It’s more likely to squash the lipstick itself than disappear back into the tube when you’re applying it and needs quite a bit of force to do that. It’s also quite a sturdy feeling tube as it has fairly thick packaging and I’m yet to have one break or to have the lipstick unscrew in my bag and create a mess inside the lid or the lid to come off and I’ve taken my others on holiday and thrown them in my bag so many times.

The colour for this is pretty light, for my lips anyway. I have pale skin but my lips are fairly pigmented, and definitely on the pink side. The coverage for this lipstick is good in that it’s highly pigmented, it covered my natural lip colour completely, despite being quite a bit lighter. I’m not sure how many people have a natural lip colour like this and I’d say for it to look natural, rather than being a more dramatic contrast look, this particular colour is probably best suited to people with paler skin tones. Maybe it’s just me and how it worked on my lips but I find it hard to see someone with a darker skin tone being able to dull it down or sheer it out enough to be considered nude without wiping half of the product off.

The formula is also really nice and moisturising and creamy so applies easily. However, it feels almost too creamy and it doesn’t apply that evenly when you first use it. And don’t be tempted to add another layer to see if that helps, it just seems to make things worse whenever you next close your mouth. I did find that if I sort of buffed the colour into my lips with my finger it actually smoothed out well, dulled down a bit rather than being overly bright for a nude, and also seemed to last better.

I also found that buffing it in gave it more of a satin sheen and meant it actually set. Without doing it the finish to me was more shiny than a satin and stayed looking wet. It also didn’t really set and within half an hour it had transferred onto everything and ended up looking even patchier.

As far as staying power goes, I will say that I went into this not expecting a lot. I tend to find that most traditional lipsticks just don’t last well for me, especially anything that has more shine than a matte so I didn’t expect this satin to last more than an hour or two without reapplication. It did do better than I expected once I’d used my finger on it but still three hours was the longest it lasted before I needed to reapply it.

I think that overall I’m actually happy with this lipstick, though it may not sound it from what I’ve said. Once I’ve done the buffing in I really like the colour it comes up with and it does stay an ok length of time for a traditional stick lipstick. I really like how creamy the formula feels, it almost feels more like a balm than a lipstick, and it doesn’t drag on your lips at all. I guess the moisturising feel is probably the cause of the problems with coverage and staying power but, to be honest, I’d rather have one that I need to apply again than one that will leave my lips getting drier and flakier than they already are and it’s easy to apply anyway.

I’m not sure how much I’d recommend this to people, unless like me your lips are dry and you tend to find that a lot of lipsticks just make this worse. This is definitely not one to wear just after using lip balm though, it just makes any problems worse, so apply that a while before and let it sink in well before using the lipstick. I actually really like this and have ended up reaching for it as a more natural nude tinted lip look over the past week.

As I said I did get this in a set last week. The Foam and Away set is currently in an offer where it’s £15 instead of £40 so it’s a good deal if it’s still available, it’s gone down from £20 when I ordered it so it might be disappearing soon. It’s also a good way to try a range of their products. Whether this is worth the full price at £9 I’m not sure, but Soap and Glory often have these in offers like three for two or in gift sets so if this sounds good to you I’d wait until then to try it.

    • Thanks, I do like it. I realised I don’t really have any glosses, a recent sort made me realise most of them were so old and out of date, I think I may need to get one as I think being able to add a bit of gloss on top would make me use some of my other lipsticks more too.
