I absolutely LOVE this MLBB strawberry- pink shade of Buxom Lip Polish. Candi used to be my go-to color, but now that it has been discontinued, Kanani is my #1. Kanani is the perfect everyday lip gloss that looks great on everyone. I can't go a day without it! definitely recommend this beautiful product! Bare Escentuals- please don't discontinue this one too!

I love this gloss! It is the perfect pink gloss for my NW45 skin tone. I've actually already replaced this as I love to wear it to work and for play;) Very beautiful gloss with a bit of shimmer that makes your lips look very kissable. I'm definitely a gloss girl so this is everything! Feels cool when you first put it on but that subsides after a bit. I will continue to purchase this again and again.

I've seen this described below as a coral pink, but no, this is a VERY blue-based pink. It is more of a sheer fuschia, really. I'm fair with neutral undertones, and this pulled fairly purple on me...too cool-toned for me to wear and I can usually wear cool shades. I prefer the color Candi from this line, which is a slightly warmer pink. FYI, on the Sephora website, it looks like they got the swatches for these two colors mixed up. Candi is definitely the more "coral" of the two colors in real life, though on Sephora's site it looks like a cool fuschia pink.

I really like this gloss. It plumps lips slightly, but not to the point of making them irritated and tingle too much. Kanani is a perfect pink that gives you a little more than a hint of color and overall brightens up my appearance. I've worn this with a full face of makeup and with just a bit of concealer; it does not look underdone with a full face or overdone with just concealer. It has a better smell and texture than Chanel Glossimer, which was my go-to gloss prior to this. It has less of a plastic/chemical scent, but is not overly fruity or perfumed. I'm very satisfied with my purchase!

One of my favourite lipglosses! I love the warm pink color and I imagine it would be flattering on most skintones.
In terms of plumping this baby really works. The tingling sensation takes a little getting used to though because it's quite strong but not unpleasant.
It also has a surprisingly good staying power for a lipgloss.

I have this lipgloss in Kanani, as well as Melonie which is in the "tint" collection. They aren't my favorite, but I love them all the same. I generally only wear these when I'm going out someplace special or dressing up - they aren't an "everyday" lipgloss, at least not for me.
The formula is pretty tacky. It's not full-on sticky, but it's not vaseline either. However, the plus side of the tackiness is that it stays - I mean really stays. It doesn't have a strong scent at all, and has a VERY slight minty taste. When you first put it on it tingles - almost burns, but that is a result of the plumper. Plumping wise, it works. I did notice that my lips were bigger after putting it on, which is awesome because most products advertise that they "plump", but I have found very few that actually make good on their promise. Buxom delivers, which I appreciate because if I buy a plumper, I want it to actually work. The con about this plumper though is that I find that I get reddish around my lipline. It does go away in about 10-15 minutes, but still kind of annoying until it does.
The colors are true. Kanani is a coral-y pink. I am fair skinned and it's the perfect shade. I also have Melonie in the tints line, it is a very bright watermelon pink in the tube. I was expecting it to go on a more muted pink because it's a "tint", but It's true when you put it on also - very bright. I find it too bright for my liking, so I only wear it occasionally.
The packaging could be better - I hate that after carrying it in your purse for a while, the silver lettering fades. That's a major pet peeve of mine, because the gloss starts to look old and yucky, but in reality you've only had it a few weeks! Also, I hate wand applicators, but these are especially bad because they have a brush on the end as opposed to a sponge tip. It makes applying the gloss very difficult - the main reason I don't consider this an everyday, on the go gloss. I do however like the "chrome" finish top - it doesn't get scratched up like some "chrome" finishes do. As you can tell, the packaging is important to me. I want pretty gloss, but I also want it to look cute while I'm putting it on too!
I only give this 3 lippies because its not easy to apply and the formula is too tacky for my taste. However, the colors highly pigmented and it really does plump - if plumping is what you're after, this is by far the best I have tried. $18 is kind of expensive, but I will buy these again when I run out to keep as my "special" gloss.

This is my absolute favorite lipgloss! This color is so bright in the tube but goes on to be the perfect pink on my lips. The wear time is very good for a gloss, about 3 hours without eating or drinking. This is a little on the expensive side, but the quality is excellent and lasts for a long time. I love that there's not so much shimmer or glitter in this, nor does it make my lips look like vinyl. It's just the perfect gloss!
I love to wear this when I'm having a lazy makeup day; just gloss and some concealer where it's needed and I'm ready to go!

BEST lipgloss ever!!!! The tingle takes a bit to get used to but its not uncomfortable- more refreshing. The color is coral-pink, looks awesome against my fair skin. It is a little tacky feeling when its first put on, but once you wear it a few minutes, its fine. Love love love this gloss and I will never buy another!

This and Betty are my two favorite shades. I love that Kanani is a bright pink that still looks soft and pretty. I wore it all the time when I was blonde, and was worried it wouldn't work with my new very dark brown hair. I actually like it better! It brightens up my face and adds a pop of color without being too much.

I really love this gloss, this particular color more so. I have a thing for that tingle it gives your lips. The biggest con though is the price of course. Bare Escentuals is known for it's higher prices though. I might search for a less expensive lip pumper, but fortunately the container does last for a long time. I've had one buxom gloss for almost a year now and still haven't ran out yet.

I really like this lipgloss, i think the plumping is very noticeable. If you are very fair i would recommend trying this on, i tried it on but after buying it i noticed the color is not as natural looking as i thought it would be. It is kind of too reddish. I would definitely buy this in another color though.

I love this lipgloss & Kanani is my favorite color. It's a pick me up pink, not too bright like it looks. Also when my lips are barely chapped, this doesn't accentuate it like other glosses. It does have a strong tingly menthol feeling to it though but I don't mind. I wish the tube was smaller since I like my lipglosses to fit inside my purse pocket.

Such a pretty pink lip gloss, and with plumping power! One of my all-time favorites. (All of the BE Buxom glosses are great, btw. This just happens to be my favorite shade.)
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Blue
This gloss is amazing. I actually didn't know it was a plumper and don't think it really plumped my lips. I love how it feels like menthol on my lips. Also, the color was just what I was looking for. I have dark pigmented lips and this was bright enough to counteract that. This is very youthful and I got it for cheap on eBay. I thought it had good staying power. I don't see how this could disappoint if you want a nice pink gloss.

After a month of trying this particular gloss on every single time I visited Sephora or Ulta, I finally went ahead and purchased it. While vividly bright pink in the tube, it sheers out to a very wearable pink that brightens up my face and visibly smooths out my rough winter lips. I usually don't like any shimmer in my gloss, but the shimmer is very fine and almost unnoticeable in this gloss. Of course, I love the buxom tingle and the non-stickiness that is inherent in all the BE buxom glosses, as well. I'm not sure about hte plumping, but I have pretty full lips to begin with. Highly recommended!

Very cute color...kinda a sheer but bright pink. I like how it feels on my lips & the tingle effect lasts for over an hour. I usually wear it over or under lipstick b/c I like how it looks that way better than on it's own. I think it's too $$$ to repurchase for a lipgloss, though. There's other stuff out there that may be comparable. I get a discount on it b/c of where I work, so that's the only reason I bought it (along with half the other stuff I buy-LOL).

I really like the Buxom glosses. Kanani is a bright, pretty pink -- a great summer color. It can be a little bright for my fair skin so I find I reach for Dolly more.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
My first experience with Buxom Lipgloss was in a makeup kit, and it was a cute little tube in a gorgeous peachy gold color (Jessica). I was searching for a bright pink gloss for summer to replace an Aveda one which was gorgeous but it gave me little bumps on my lips, not cute. I was a bit put off by the huge size of the tube because its kind of bulky. Kanani is a beautiful bright pink in the tube but on the lips it gives the perfect glossy pink pout, it just brightens up my face. It really works with my light brown skin but I think it would work on most skin tones. I find the Buxom glosses to be quite long lasting and not too sticky. It would be perfect if it was just a touch brighter!

I love love love this color. In the tube it looks like a pink you could never wear but on my lips its a nice subtle pink that brightens up your whole face. At first I was hesitant because I'm naturally tan (NC44) and thought I could never pull off this product. I just had to buy it because Kanani is my middle name and thought it was made just for me! The price for this lip gloss is kind of pricey but I think this will last me a long time because thats a lot of product they put in there and a little goes a long way. I love the cute packaging with the hula girl. Oh yah and this pink is perfect and just in time for the summer!

I love this colour! It's a pretty bright pink that looks great when paired with purple eyeshadow. I also have Dolly and found that Kanani is thinner and has less staying power than Dolly and actually dries my lips out a bit. Still, I love the Buxoms and love this colour so I will probably repurchase.
