Lip Gloss -Buxom -Full-On Lip Polish (all)

on 10/13/2018 6:29:00 PM


I am not a lip gloss lover, but when I wear it, I will only wear Buxom. These glosses are long wearing (they last until a meal, which is as long as I expect any lip product to last). They are pigmented, and the sparkle and non-sparkle shades are equally gorgeous. They wear comfortably without leaving that awful lip gloss line. I could do without the tingle, but it doesn't bother me enough to dock a lippie. I always snatch up any sets of minis because I do find it hard to use a whole tube.

Lip Gloss -Buxom -Full On Plumping Lip Cream Gloss- Dolly

on 9/27/2018 5:28:00 PM


I'm not a big Lipstick/Gloss person, opting instead for low maintenance stains and balms that moisturize, but look mlbb and won't transfer. The few glosses that I do own are very light with a lot of slip (that also usually do not stay on for very long).

I tried to just dab this in the center of my lip as I do with my lighter glosses and was not impressed. It didn't spread well.

The next time I used it, I prepped my lips with balm, then carefully painted my lips, maybe even going just a touch over my natural lipline.

It stayed on for several hours and through snacks. It's is a beautiful, skin-flattering gloss with juicy healthy shine. Not so much that I feel too 'done up' in the middle of the day. I would wear this for both every day and for occasions. Makes my whole face light up. It might have left a very faint hint of color on my lips - nothing dramatic, but I noticed that my lips were not too pale once it wore off. It also did not dry out my lips.

Mascara -Buxom -Lash

on 9/14/2018 9:53:00 AM


Oh, I kind of want to hate this mascara for the brush, because I'm not wild about those plastic ones with the tiny brushes, but it's a good one. It seems it would be troublesome and clunky, but it does a good job separating my lashes and giving them definition. I'm not so jazzed on length and volume, but the definition is great. Plus, I can put this on my lower lashes and somehow it doesn't get smeary when I apply it. I just get mascara on my lashes and not on my lower lid.

Staying power is really good, too. I can get sweaty or go out in the rain with this on and I don't get any streaking or running. It washes off well, too.

But would I buy it? Not for the $20-plus price tag. I just don't care to drop that kind of money on something I'm advised to toss after six months of use. (I received a deluxe mini in exchange for 100 beauty insider points at Sephora, for the record, and this works well as a little purse-sized mascara, even though it's just a shorter tube.

So, it's a really good mascara. Applies well, performs well. But I'm still not crazy about the brush -- it just kind of repels me when I use it, even as I use it and am impressed and surprised by it anew. And again, the price. I'm just as happy with my cheaper mascaras from the drugstore, so this won't dethrone any of those.

Lip Gloss -Buxom -Full-On Lip Polish - Sugar

on 9/12/2018 8:48:00 AM


This just isn't for me. I received Sugar as part of a Sephora nude favorites package, and it is not a favorite.

First off I'm not crazy about glosses, and I really don't care for most minty or plumping gloss formulas. This is both.

Applied I really noticed a powerful tingle, and if I lick my lips I taste mint and a bit of that numbing flavor that's kind of fake mint paired with something else. I'm not sure what. It doesn't feel totally unpleasant on the lips, more minty and not really numbing, but I'd rather just apply a lip product and have it feel neutral or slightly moisturizing, not like tingly slickness. (That said, it's a lip-plumping formula, so it's not exactly a dishonest offering. Just not my taste.)

The feel, when I consider how it feels apart from the minty tingle, is nice. It's a bit slick, but not sticky and would be nice on its own. There's a bit of staying power, provided you don't sip a lot of coffee, etc. The color is kind of a metallic warm nude, which is another thing I'm not wild about. If it's a metallic red or wine color, sure, it's fine, but metallic or pearly or shimmery nudes are not a personal preference of mine. This isn't super metallic or pearly in appearance, but it's just not anything that I'd gravitate towards.

So, it's good if you like that sort of thing, but on a personal level, it's not for me.

This lipstick stung and irritated my lips. It's also matte, not shiny.
