Eye Shadow -Buxom -Gimme Gorgeous Shadow Single

on 2/17/2018 2:36:00 AM

I love this shadow single, "Gimme Gorgeous", which is packaged without a case. You do have to spend $2 to buy the little case that holds it, but it's a really great way to save on packaging, which I appreciate.
The shadow: a taupey-cool brown, something like a fawn-type color, but slightly deeper. I would not call this a "Chocolate" or cocoa, but the pigmentation can definitely render it as dark as that, depending on how much you opt to build the coverage.
It's texture is creamy for a powder, so it's buttery/pigmented.
This shadow quality is what I miss when I think of older shadow brands that have now gone rogue, like the old Stila shadows. This has zero shimmer that I can detect, and would be absolutely perfect for any age of woman (won't accentuate lines, etc).

The cool thing about this shadow is that it could even work as a contour cheek color, if you have a good little brush to help you properly contour your cheeks. It would also work as a deeper blush color. For $12, you have a lot of options. I purchased mine at Ulta, but I believe Sephora definitely carries the line, as does Impulse at Macy's and similar stores. Hope you love it like i do.

Liquid -Buxom -Show Some Skin Weightless Foundation

on 2/5/2018 10:54:00 PM


Like others, I found this on sale at TJ Maxx and thought "why not try for $10?". I am really happy that I purchased it. This foundation has light coverage that can be layered where needed. Just make sure to let the first layer dry down first. It is lightweight and blends easily on the skin. I like to use this on days when I want "easy" out the door makeup.

Lip Gloss -Buxom -Lips - Sugar

on 2/1/2018 9:53:00 PM


I really like this :) I received it in a Sephora Favorites Nude Lip kit. I have tried some other lip glosses before, but I'm not really looking for much in a lip gloss - I see lip glosses as slightly sticky, usually a little less hydrating, colored lip balms. I do have some requirements though: good color, smoothing action, hydration and for it to not be too sticky. On top of that, I DO have a major requirement: my lips are quite sensitive, and many lips product have in the past given me dermatitis or eczema on my lips.

I generally don't like when lip glosses have a tingly feel (because it often reminds me of the start of a reaction to lip products), but I'm quite fine with it in here. It's feels like the tingle you get from menthol. The smell is caramel, but I don't think this gloss has much of a taste... or maybe it has, but the taste doesn't get into my mouth, because the gloss stays put really well, and is actually moisturizing. I don't usually like smells and tastes in lip gloss as it makes me more prone to lick my lips, but I think the menthol in this prevents me from doing that. Oh, and this doesn't irritate my lips at all

My skin is light neutral olive, about NC20 in MAC. I think this color is very pretty: a transparent caramel with microshimmer. IMO, it's not shimmery though - just gives more of a glossy look to the lips. I actually like the effect this gives: it doesn't actually plump the lips, but it fills in the cracks, so the surface is evened out. If you have flaky lips, this gloss is good at hiding that. When I run out of my sample, I'll definitely repurchase this!

Mascara -Buxom -Lash


I have straight lashes, this holds curl (not as well as a waterproof mascara, but compared to other washables), makes lashes look nice and fluffy, and is easy to remove. It does smudge slightly and disappear from the lower lashes. Would not repurchase when the price is taken into consideration.

Eye Shadow -Buxom -Customizable Eyeshadow Bar Palette

on 1/4/2018 10:09:00 PM


as an eyeshadow addict, i LIVE for the buttery, silky smoothness of these shadows. if you love shimmery shadow and hate how so many of them are powdery and accentuate fine lines, then you should buy these immediately. diamond darling is a perfect shimmery ivory for the inner v, and it's one of the rare shimmer shadows that won't create all these horrible creases when you smile, etc. i finally got all the neutral shimmery shadows from this collection that i've been wanting, and i'm SO HAPPY. how are these shadows not more popular? urban decay naked is a powdery mess compared to these. (gave away the 2 and 3). tarte vol iii is along the same shimmery neutral, but a bit more "special occasion" compared to these. diamond darling, mink magnet, style icon, bold bling, and champagne buzz are my HG FOR LIFE!!!! yasssss queen!!!
