Today's review is the final in my series of the 3 Mother Pucker Gloss Sticks I received at Christmas. First I had Nudist which is still the most stunning nude lip gloss I own. The shade compliments me perfectly without washing me out and gives me that fresh-faced look. Then I had Plum Jam which was a redder version. This was quite lovely as it gave me a little bit more pout without being too pigmented. Both of the shades I've tried so far have been quite sheer, but I've never been more thankful of that fact until I discovered this shade.
As you can see, it definitely looks like it's got a certain fluorescence to it! As soon as I saw the shade I pretty much figured that it wasn't going to be my type of colour. It's basically traffic-cone orange! Well, maybe not quite, but it definitely doesn't look like something I would lean towards buying in a shop. I even swatched it on my hand before applying it for the first time, just to get an idea of how shocking it would actually look. This was when I was reminded that these products are actually quite sheer and I'd probably get away with it. It still looked like quite a bright pink, but when mixed with my natural lip colour I figured it would be ok.
And it definitely was! Having said that, I would certainly say the gloss was slightly brighter than this picture demonstrates. However, I would completely agree with the way this picture gives evidence that this is actually a very wearable colour which you shouldn't be scared to purchase in store yourself. It gives you a pinch more pigmentation for those spring and summer days when you're looking for something extra special, without requiring effort or worry of it smudging all over your face. It's effortless and genuinely lovely.
The quality of the product is just as good as the other two i've tested. It still smells like vanilla, feels smooth as butter and doesn't dry out your pout or make it sticky in any way.
I genuinely recommend that each and every one of you try a couple of these Gloss Sticks as I guarantee you're going to like them. They're epic in every way!
