Buxom has launched some beautiful limited edition sets and shades for the holidays this year. The Buxom lip gloss formula is not new to me, it is a beautiful hydrating formula which is not sticky at all. I have the pictures and swatches of two of the holiday sets from Buxom below – Gimmie Glitter Plumping Lip Gloss Set and Glam and Gilt-Y Plumping Lip Gloss Duo.
Gimmie Glitter Plumping Lip Gloss Set – This sparkly lip kit is stocked Full-On plumping Lip Polishes in Celeste and Clair, and three new, exclusive, festive shades: Joy, Holly, and Eve. The unique peptide complex visibly plumps lips to new levels and Vitamins A & E help provide lasting moisture, leaving lips with a shimmer shine finish and tantalizing tingle. The shades are described below:
Celeste – peachy-beige sparkle
Joy – golden-nude shimmer
Holly – ruby-red shimmer
Clair – pinky-mauve with golden shimmer
Eve – dark-nude shimmer
Glam and Gilt-Y Plumping Lip Gloss Duo is set of glosses packed with sparkle, Vitamins A & E, and the unique plumping peptide complex, leaving the lips with a shimmer-shine finish and tantalizing tingle. The two mini Full-On Plumping Lip Polishes in shades Sophia and Gabby flatter every skin tone.
The packaging and shades do vibe with the holiday season and make a perfect for you and your loved ones. Buxom Cosmetics are available at Sephora and Sephora.ca
Buxom has launched a plumping lip stain that hydrates while delivering colour with lasting shine. I am still enjoying the formula and shades of the Buxom Full Force Plumping Lipstick which I reviewed and swatched here. The new Buxom Serial Kisser Plumping Lip Stain has an innovative, lightweight serum drenches lips in saturated, juicy colour and lasting, to die for shine. Hydrating hyaluronic acid nourishes lips and leaves them looking plump, supple, and completely kissable. The precision doe-foot glides across lips for pout-perfect application every time.
To use: ‘Start by applying at the cupid’s bow, making an “X” shape to help define lips before filling in, from corner to corner. The applicator has a precision “teardrop” tip to define the lips, while the large-sized base allows you to easily fill in the entire lip.’
I have swatched the shades in below manner:
Make Out – Soft Nude
Smooch – Peachy Coral
S.W.A.K – True Rose
Frenchie – Light Mauve
Pucker Up Dolly – Mauve
Bitten – Rich Berry
Beso – Cherry Red
XXX – Raspberry Pink
I have been using this lip stain for a few days now and it a really nice hydrating lip stain. The formula is light and comfortable on the lips, keeps them hydrated. The doe-foot applicator works nicely to apply the product. The shades are not much pigmented and the tingling effect is negligible as compared to the Full Force Plumping Lipstick which I linked above in this post. I did not notice much plumpness in my lips but the lips do look juicy and supple with the hydration while the lip stain does not stay for over an hour or two before the need to reapply it. For me, it is okay to keep it on my desk and reapply when I feel, and a good lip care product. The lip stain gets a bit darker after applying it on the lips as compared to the color in the packaging though. Buxom Cosmetics are available at Sephora and Sephora.ca
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
