I bought the Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Extreme Plump Collagen Lip Shine in How Nude (what a mouthful!) at the back end of last year and at first was sort of on the fence and wondered what all the fuss was about? Looking back I reckon I was totally distracted by the 'tingle' - oh my word - the 'tingle' - I'm telling you now if you like your tingles big then this is the one to go for - definitely the biggest tingle I've ever had ... ever! Initially I thought the experience could even be described as painful but then you kind of get used to it and just want more ...!

I find this to be a really wearable, barely there nude shine with a very faint shimmer - not too pale, pink or brown - just your lips but better - it's slightly sticky until it sinks in but I can cope with that! I wouldn't say the swell on the old lips reaches Mick Jagger proportions or anything (although it certainly feels like it!) but it does pump them up a little whilst all that tingling is going on! The sensation kicks in and intensifies well within a minute of application and lasts for about 20-30 mins - after which time you're left with a set of intensely moisturised lips - which lasts for a good few hours. Even after a morning cuppa, sticky toast and marmalade, and even an apple (I eat a lot when I'm at work!) I haven't felt the need to apply any additional lip balm, this is good because I usually can't keep my hands (and lips) off the stuff!
Unfortunately this appears to be a 'stern pucker' moment! Must remember to smile next time!
I now look on the 'Mother Pucker' as more of a daytime lip treatment - which can be used on it's own or with another lippie over the the top. I guess if you have a sensitive lip area and don't like big tingles then this may be one to avoid but I'm loving it!
