Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Sticks in Nudist, Plum Jam and Fuchsia-Ristic. Review & Swatches

Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Sticks in Nudist, Plum Jam and Fuchsia-Ristic

This post could as well be titled 'Youtube made me buy it". I saw such a number of trustworthy British youtubers rave about Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Sticks that I was lead to believe that I was in desperate need of at least one of these chubby crayons. 
Then I saw this gorgeous Holiday set, packed in a lovely vintage-looking tin box and I could resist no longer.
The set consists of three shades: Nudist, Plum Jam and Fuchsia-Ristic.
They all look totally different in the bullet, but as you can see in the picture below, they show hardly any difference when swatched, and even less so when actually applied.
Nudist, is, quite obviously a nude shade. The colour barely shows on my lips, but it gives my lips a slightly beige, neutral tint. I've already used this up, wearing it at home instead of a lip balm. 
Plum Jam looks like it's going to be a very saturated, dark colour. Nothing more misleading. It gives my lips a slightly pink tint, you can try to build it up to get a brighter pink shade, but it will give you the feeling of too much product on your lips.
Fuchsia-ristic looks like scary neon orange, but in fact on my lips it looks exactly the same as Plum Jam. I've even made and experiment to see if I was right and applied one of them on my upper lip, the other one on the bottom. No difference at all.

These lip crayons are extremely moisturising. They're the most balm-like product among the wide range of similar pencil-shaped lippies. If you try to build the colour up and apply too much, they can feel quite heavy on the lips.
 True to their name, Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Sticks offer high shine wet-looking finish, which last for surprisingly long. Maybe it's because the product stays on the surface of the lips, without getting absorbed. I would say that the moisturising effect is visible as long as the lipstick is on, then the lips may return to their chapped shape.
The Gloss sticks have a pleasant faint vanilla scent, which I quite like. 

All in all, I don't regret getting these, the packaging is lovely and I've already used one up as a lip balm. However, you definitely do not need the three of them, Nudist is probably the best pick of them all, I think it's this nice, suit-everyone kind of shade.  
I would recommend these to women for whom wearing colour on their lips is outside their comfort zone and for teenagers who are just beginning their adventure with make-up.
