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.
I did a post like this a couple of years ago and have meant to do it since but they sort of fell below other posts and, since I’ve just come back from a couple of nights in Wales, I thought this was the perfect timing for an updated summer version. I really like reading these by other people, seeing what they choose to take and it gives me ideas in case I’ve forgotten something so I hope you guys like this post. It’s also interesting, to me anyway, when I was writing this to see how it compared to the same sort of things I was taking when I wrote the last one.
I have been known to take more than I need makeup wise, three palettes for two nights may be slightly over the top, so I tried to pack light and think I succeeded. As it’s summer time, or supposed to be, my makeup routine is quite different to a few months ago. The main difference is the foundation stage and this group of products has actually become my go to easy look for the past couple of weeks anyway so I guess it’s part my travel bag and part just my everyday look. I think I’ve actually reviewed most of these products so if I have I’ll try to link them.
I did a post on Friday about the empties from last month and there are a few of those products that should probably be in a monthly favourites post too as I used them a lot but I’ve chosen eight different products I’ve been loving this month. I think most of these are a case of finding something I’ve had for a while and loving it but there are a couple of new things I only found this month. It seems a bit odd to include food but the Walkers Sunbites in general are so good. I really like it when companies do a good sweet chilli flavour for crisps things and these have the crunch and a bit of spice without being too hot for me which is always good as I don’t do chilli all that well sometimes.
I feel like in a monthly favourites I have to at least mention Reigns and Hustle Cat as I have really liked both of these games, Reigns in particular is one you pick up and play and lose time in whereas Hustle Cat is more one to sit down and know you’ll play for a while. This month I haven’t really been watching or listening to much that’s new for me to say that I’ve found something different. I have been really liking the heritage series, or whatever they’re calling it, that the BBC are doing where they either remake old series I none offs or they do a prequel or sequel type thing for them. It’s a nice way to revisit older series and give a new twist on them. Robot Wars finished and that was a great series, I hope they bring it back for a second (maybe they have already announced it and I missed it) but that next time it’s longer. I’d love to see some of the robots from earlier series appear, seeing some of them back was nice but I’d love to see the return of ones like Chaos 2, Panic Attack, Pussycat and Razor. They’d have to be updated against the newer robots but seeing some of the old teams back would be nice even if they’re new robots.
I haven’t seen the Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker collections until last week so I think they’re a fairly new release. There’s three separate collections, one for pinks, one of reds and one that’s all nude colours. Each collection has eight colours in it and these include three different finishes; satin, matte and shiny. I have a feeling I will be getting more of these but to start with I got two from the Nudes Collection, a matte called Super Nude and a shiny finish called Barely Pinking. Unfortunately the first time I opened the Super Nude I managed to drop it and the tip broke before I could photograph or use it, don’t you just hate it when that happens?
These lipsticks are similar to the Sexy Mother Pucker lipsticks that have been available for a while, I think each of these finishes was available too. At the moment these are included in the buy one get one half price offer at Boots and they cost £9 each. I’ve only had these for a few days but I’ve given each of them a proper try with eating and drinking and seeing how well they last.
I know I did another recent purchases post earlier this week, I would have saved this one until next week but I’m not sure how long the Soap and Glory tin is going to be available and I think it’s a pretty god offer so wanted to show you guys what’s in it. I did go into a Boots store earlier this week and there was a display for the Soap and Glory Sweet Ten-Tation but someone in front of me got the last one as I walked through the door so if you want to get one in store you might want to be quick or just order it online may be easier as you can still pick them up in store. I got all of these things on the Boots website.
I didn’t realise that Boots had done their version of the Beauty Blender, or kind of anyway, and with the price difference I wanted to try it and the Real Techniques sponge as I’ve been recommended it in the past. Also, getting these things I now have enough Boots points to get the original beauty Blender with them anyway so I can compare them in the future some time. I also didn’t know about the Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker lipsticks, there’s a Nudes Collection, a Pinks Collection and a Reds Collection with eight colours in each with three different finishes. I am definitely going to be getting more in the future but I thought I’d go with two from the Nudes Collection to start with as they’re buy one get one half price at the moment.
Not long ago I did a recent purchases from Boots and it had a Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Lacquer from Soap and Glory in it, I thought this was the only one of them that I had but it turned out that in last year’s Christmas gift set they had on offer another of these was included though I hadn’t used it so I thought I’d include both as that’s another permanent colour as well. The new one I bought was in Muse Bouche, the older one from the gift set is Charm Offensive.
These are essentially very pigmented lip glosses, and though they have the Sexy Mother Pucker branding on them they do not make your lips tingle or plump them like the original or lip glosses with the same name. These come in various colours though they tend to be neutrals to reds rather than any vibrant pinks as far as I can tell. They cost £7 at Boots and are often in the three for two offers so it’s probably best to get them then if you want to give them a go. There’s 7ml of product in these which is less than the larger original glosses but the price is also lower and they’re a good handbag size so I don’t have a problem with it.
This is a mini recent purchases because I think these four things are all ones I’m really excited to try so wanted to do a sort of first impressions before I do a proper review after playing around a bit with them. I made a couple of orders, one from Boots and one from John Lewis for presents and things and got these too, one is kind of a treat for finishing my course as I have been wanting any of the Naked palettes for ages and it seemed like a good reason to get one.
