Buxom has introduced two launches for lips – both for treatment, care of lips, and also to prepare a smooth and sexy base before applying the lipstick. Buxom has launched its first conditioning scrub stick which gently exfoliates lips for a smooth, supple, and sexy lip look with a tropical twist.
Power-Full Lip scrub is dragon-fruit-inspired, sugar-infused scrub stick that gently buffs away dry skin patches while nurturing papaya seed oil and conditioning mango seed butter pamper lips. This works as a perfect mess-free first step in routine to make the lips ready for colour. It can also be used in circular motions to ensure that the entire lip is exfoliated. Then the leftover can be wiped away with a dry or wet issue. The Lip Scrub is a white-coloured stick with the multi-colour dotted appearance and is named ‘Dragon fruit’.
Buxom has also launched a plumping and moisturizing tinted lip balm that blooms to a unique custom shade by reacting to the pH level of the lips it is applied to means the shade will be different for different people. This big, bold, plumping lip treatment is available in two new shades inspired by the best-selling glosses. It applies very smoothly like silk and lips look supple and comfortable at the same time. It can be worn alone or with any other lip product. These tinted lip balms also work nicely as blush – a little colour on the cheeks gives a balmy flush of colour and create colour harmony on the face. The three shades in this tinted lip balm are Big O (sheer pink), Inner Glow (Nude), and Dolly Fever (Mauve).
Both the launches came at the perfect time when the weather is cold and inside air is dry – making the skin as well as lips dry and peeling. I am enjoying both the launches for everyday use and they are keeping my lips moisturized, supple, and comfortable. Buxom Cosmetics are available at Sephora and Sephora.ca
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
