Soap & Glory Be Your Own Gloss

Thursday, January 16, 2014

Be Your Own Gloss is a lovely little gift set released for Christmas 2013, consisting of five adorable miniature versions of Soap & Glory's popular Sexy Mother Pucker lip glosses. The shades included are Candy Gloss, Clear, Punch Bowl, Half Naked and Yummy Plum; and they all contain S&G's "plumping microspheres" and an "exclusive microcirculation-stimulating extracts" which visibly enhances lip volume. The glosses all have amazing scents, including chocolate orange, vanilla, chocolate cherry and buttered popcorn... Yum. When applied the first thing you will notice, besides the gorgeous flavour, is the slight tingling sensation on your lips. This is supposedly the formula working its magic and making your lips look plump and voluminous. I honestly don't think that the results are hugely noticeable. There is a slight difference, but I tend to find my lips appear bigger when I'm wearing lip gloss, anyway. I don't expect completely life changing results from a high street product, though, so it's not a disappointment.

Included in the set is one clear gloss, and four tinted glosses. The tinted ones aren't massively pigmented and don't claim to be, but they do offer a nice sheer wash of colour, and in one case, subtle sparkle. I love the finish of these glosses - they make the lips appear really plump and juicy, and the formula is thick and quite sticky which means it stays put for a while. This does mean it's probably not the best gloss for a windy day, as I can imagine the whole pesky hair-stuck-to-lips thing occurring... Not the best look!

I'm definitely glad that I bought these glosses - I love the cheeky name, gorgeous scents, and I'm even a fan of the weird tingly, pins and needles effect they have on the lips! I only have one or two lip glosses in my entire collection so it's nice to suddenly have five shiny new options for when the mood to wear gloss strikes. And, this set only cost me £7 - half the RRP as it's one of Soap and Glory's Christmas 2013 gift sets that are currently half price at Boots. Bargain!
