As someone who adores the vintage era and the style from the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, I’ve always appreciated the Soap & Glory Brand! I’ve used a few of their Bath products for years and loved them and yesterday I finally made my first purchase from their Make Up range, buying myself a Sexy Mother Pucker Lipstick.
I remember years ago when the Sexy Mother Pucker Lipglosses first came out and a few people had them, you applied the gloss and suddenly your lips would tingle and plump up – fascinating! Sadly I never got round to getting one, however, there’s always time!
I love the packaging of Soap & Glory, the Lipstick is the perfect size to carry with you anywhere and at just £3.50 it’s an absolute bargain! I decided to purchase a Matte Lipstick over a Gloss Stick as I feel the glossy finishes never last as long. I was testing each shade on my hand and decided to go for a warm pink shade.
As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, although I love the colour pink I rarely wear it as a lip shade as I prefer to choose bolder colours. However, I really loved the warm tones to Pretty Muted and I always think it’s good to try out different shades. As well as red shades being a signature colour of the 1950s, pinks were often worn quite frequently and as someone who is forever being inspired by Old Hollywood, I thought I’d try and embrace them too.
What I loved about this product is the shape of the lipstick, it’s perfect for defining your lip line and is very easy to apply, it even glides on smoothly like a lip gloss but the results are matte finish – such a paradox! The only negative thing I found when using the Sexy Mother Pucker was that I had to apply quite a lot of coats to get the shade quite noticeable. I can only attribute this to the low price of the lipstick as the quality is lovely, it would probably stay on for longer if I had applied a lip pencil first.
I definitely will be using more Soap & Glory in the future, it’s such a unique brand and very special to vintage lovers like myself! I think next time I’ll try a darker shade or a Matte Powder Coat Long-Wear Lipstick as that seems more suitable for me. However, it’s refreshing to try a new shade of lipstick and I’m definitely coming round to wearing pink lipstick!
