This weekend I recived this Buxom set, which I won in the Makeup Geek Weekly Challenge. 😀 I’ve tryed it a few times now and thought I’d show you some swatches of the lip products! The set contains 4 mini lip sticks and 4 lip glosses.
Buxom is a Bare Escentuals line and I didn’t know they had this line before I got this set. Now, I’m glad I got to try out some of their products! All of them smell like delicious caramel and chocolate, which I like. 🙂 The colors are so pretty and natural, which is great for me, because I always do very dramatic eye makeup and these will tone the whole look down a bit. They contain vitamin A and E to make the lips soft and they are ment to create fuller looking lips. I think my lips got slightly fuller with these, but not dramatically. You get a tingly feeling when you first apply these. This is because the lip stick and gloss is making your lips a bit sore and in that way plumpy.
The lip sticks are matte and so smooth! I love the way they’re created, because you can use it as a lip liner as well as a lip stick! I think they were easy to apply and they lasted for hours! When I put on one of these this morning I thought I’d touch it up a bit after 2-3 hours. But to my surprise it still looked perfect! 😀 So I’ll definitely be wearing these more, on a daily basis. Here are the swatches of the lip sticks:
The lip glosses or as it says on the packaging, the big and healthy lip polishes, have lots of gold sparkle to them and they are very pretty! But they are a bit sticky and create lines in the outer corners of my lips, especially if I wear them over the lip sticks. Other than that, they’re good. Here are the lip polish swatches:
Here are my favorites, on my lips:
All in all, I love the colors, smell and how long lasting these Buxom lip products are! I don’t mind my lips looking a bit fuller and more sparkly. 😀 The only negative thing, is the slightly sticky lip glosses. But I think I can survive that 😉
This is a limited edition set that costs 39 $, but has a value of 72 $. It’s out of stock right now, but when it hopefully comes back, you can buy it here or get the products individually at Sephora.
I hope you liked this review!
I need to get this! Thank you for posting it!
