Buxom has launched Full Force Plumping Lipstick which is a full-coverage lipstick and available in a wide range of shades. I have only tried Full-On Plumping Lip Cream Gloss which I am still a fan of, means it really left a good impression on me about the Buxom lip products and not to forget the Power-full Plump Lip balm which is a lovely lip balm.
Buxom Full Force Plumping Lipstick is a full-coverage, creamy lipstick that smooths and fills for fuller-looking, plump, and soft lips. The lipstick saturates lips in satin colour with a tantalizing tingle. The hyaluronic acid and conditioning oils smooth and hydrate, while the teardrop-shaped tip effortlessly hugs every curve, every time for fuller-looking lips in one stroke.
Buxom Full Force Plumping Lipstick is available in 15 shades and I have swatched them below:
Baller – True Red
Winner – Ruby Red
Powerhouse – Fire
Icon – Nectar
Mover – Soft Pink
Influencer – Spiced Brown
Rockstar – Mystery Mauve
Gladiator – Deep Plum
Dolly Dreamer – Mauve
Lover – Cranberry
Hot Shot – Warm Orange
Badass – Grape
Triple Threat – Deep Nude
Boss – Cinnamon
Goddess – Beige
Shaker – Candy Pink
The formula of this lipstick is so silky and smooth, glides on like a dream or it is better to say it just melts on the lips. On my lips, I did notice a tingle on the lips which is almost similar to the Full-on plumping lip gloss from the brand and the result is subtle but noticeable plump look of the lips. The finish is glossy satin.
The formula is medium to full coverage and easily buildable, does not accentuate the lines or dry lips. It is moisturizing on my dry lips. The lipstick stayed on for a nice time like over 2-3 hours without reapplying. And finally coming to the packaging, it is so pretty case and looks good on the vanity as well as very handy in the bag.
Overall, Nice formula and beautiful shades, very comfortable to wear plus a hint of plump lips – why not. Buxom Cosmetics are available at Sephora and Sephora.ca*Press samples
With summery and warm vibes, Buxom has launched Boss Babe Betty Eyeshadow Palette with 12 shades ranging from sultry mattes to sparkling metallics. The palette features a shade range which is all you need for day time as well as a night time look. The palette has new and best-selling shades of very pigmented, primer-infused eye shadow formula in a range of finishes, so you can really play with the shades and be creative.
The shades in the palette are below:
Cashmere Craving – soft ivory matte
All Access – golden white shimmer
Gold Status – warm gold shimmer
Invite Only – terracotta matte
Crazy Rich – golden copper shimmer
Faster – golden orange shimmer
For Real – soft copper metallic
Upgrade – copper rose glitter
Werk – reddish-brown matte
Boom – rust brown metallic
Bronzed Bod – deep bronze shimmer
Unapologetic – deep chocolate-brown matte
The formula of the eyeshadows is very pigmented. The shimmery and metallic shades are more smooth than the matte shades but the matte shades also work well with a blending brush. The formula blends, builds, and stays on nicely on the lids without fall out or creasing on my lids for over 6 hours without primer.
The shades are beautiful and I like how they complement each other in the palette to create multiple eye looks. For me personally, I use a matte shade as a base and then use the shimmer or metallic shade to give a hint of shine and works well for me even at work. But of course, this palette is giving me the motivation to explore my creativity. The packaging is so pretty, the palette is lightweight, slim, and will store easily. I still love the blushes and gloss from the brand I reviewed here if you are looking for nice summery blush and lip products. Buxom Cosmetics are available at Sephora and Sephora.ca*Press samples
Nars High Pigment Longwear Eyeliner has launched and you need to check it out for its formula, texture, and shades. Nars can never go wrong when it comes to the eye makeup, be it the eyeshadows or the blushes which double as eyeshadows too. Same for this newly launched eyeliner I have been using non-stop.
Nars High-Pigment Longwear Eyeliner, available in 16 different bold shades, is perfect for creating a precise line or to tight line, to smudge for a smoky effect, and also for applying on the waterline. The formula is very smooth, gel-like, easy to blend while depositing rich colour that sets as it was applied. The creamy texture makes the application a breeze and does not irritates even my sensitive eyes – on the eyelids, over and under the lower lashline, on the waterline.
Below are the shades available for Nars High-Pigment Longwear Eyeliner:
Via Veneto – Black
Gran Via – Intense Black
Night Porter – Black with Pearl
Last Frontier – Dark Chocolate Brown
Mambo – Chocolate Brown
Mulholland Drive – Metallic Brown
Park Avenue – Deep Navy
Haight Ashbury – Slate Grey
Ocean Drive – Bright Cobalt
Broadway – Burnt Metallic
Grafton Street – Deep Green
Rue Bonaparte – Nude
Santa Monica Boulevard – White
The Strip – Metallic Silver
Sunset Boulevard – Metallic Gold
Rodeo Drive – Metallic Copper
I really like how pigmented the formula is, the payoff is great – instantly saturates in one swipe and builds easily for a more intense look. Another impressive thing about this eyeliner is how long-lasting it is without transferring or fading.
