Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Pillow Plump XXL review & swatches

Soap & Glory’s Sexy Mother Pucker Pillow Plump XXL lip gloss is a hydrating, ultra-glossy, lip-plumping colour. It contains LIPSWELL natural oil infusion and 3XL-PEPTIDE PLUMP that has been shown in tests to support fat cells, boost the levels of hyaluronic acid and to provide a cushioning lip-plumping effect.

It comes in a range of five shades, including one clear gloss. I picked myself up the shade Cherry Up which is a nice, bold pinky-red with a hint of sparkle.

I understand that lately there is a big thing about plumped up lips (thanks to Kylie Jenner who has even admitted that her lips are the way they are due to injections). However, I don't want the fact that I am reviewing a plumping lip gloss to come across as if I am endorsing a trend in which people are hurting themselves for bigger lips. Whether you have big lips or small lips, you are beautiful and you do not need the latest trend to dictate whether you are or not. Stay safe, kids, and don't be stupid!


To apply, gently squeeze the tube until some of the gloss emerges from the tip and then swipe it across the lips.

Upon application, Pillow Plump begins to make your lips tingle. This is the plumping ingredients working their magic!

I have some mixed emotions and thoughts about this product. I like it, but there are some things that I think could have been better.

In regards to its main claim of lip plumping, I don’t find that it makes lips look super plump, but there is a slight, noticeable difference. One word of warning though, if you somehow manage to get any on your tongue, it will make it feel kind of funny for a while!

Pillow Plump's best point is its glossiness. It is also non-sticky which is great, but if you are after a product for super plumped up lips then you may feel a little disappointed here. If you're looking for a small difference though then you may be happier.

With that said, my main issue with Pillow Plump XXL is actually that it applies quite streaky. You can even it out, but even for a mid-price range product you would expect it to be free of a problem such as this.

As well as this, it also has an odd smell. I'm not 100% on whether or not I like it, but the smell is not the be all and end all of this product.

I don't want this review to come across as if I don't like this product because I do, and I also find myself wearing it regularly. If I didn't enjoy something then I wouldn't keep reaching out for it. It does have something that keeps drawing me back and I think that it is its vibrancy and longevity. It looks eye catching in a good way and it lasts.

I also find that it doesn't dry out the lips and that is a major upside for me. Some lip colours can have the total opposite effect, but this sticks by its hydration claim.

I wouldn't say that it's the best product to wear out for dinner or drinks. The colour will wear off and that aforementioned tongue tingle is more likely to occur. It is probably better suited to shopping trips or other types of casual trips.

You will more than likely have to click this photo to see/read it properly, but it does contain the ingredients for those who wish to see them:

Overall, I think that this is a good lip gloss. It has its faults, but it does do what it sets out to, even if it's not to the extreme that it claims. The colour is a beautiful shade and the longevity is pretty decent for a lip gloss.

If you are looking for a casual, slightly plumping gloss, this is worth a try. If you are looking for something that plumps the lips to new extremes then I do not recommend following that suction trick that a lot of people seem to have been doing lately. As I said earlier, stay safe!

You can purchase Soap & Glory's Sexy Mother Pucker Pillow Plump XXL for £10/10ml from Boots.

      It is definitely worth a try, but I think that how impressed you are with it depends wholly on how much you expect to get out of it, if that makes sense!
