I absolutely love the formula of this lipgloss. I love the tingling sensation that for me, lasted quite a long time. The shine and the way it looks on the lips is gorgeous and any fine lines are filled. I do already have lips on the bigger side but I did notice plumping and they did look fuller. My only problem with it was the colour. I have dark lips already so I thought I'd have to go quite dark with this as I do with other lipglosses. It does look pretty but it's too dark for me to wear comfortably. That being said, I am a teenager so maybe if I were older I would like the colour more. I'm currently purchasing this in the shade Trixie so hopefully that will work better for me colour-wise.

I am a BL fanatic! This is a nice plum shade with a bit of shimmer in it, a bit too dark for my taste, but it is a lovely shade!

This is a beautiful berry/plummy shade with slight shimmer. The tube suggests it would be quite shimmery however when applied, it gives only a subtle look and doesn't look glittery. Based on the appearance in the tube, I was a little unsure because 1) it looked dark and 2) it looked quite shimmery (do not like!)....but when applied it is just gorgeous! I'm a PPP, neutral/cool and this looks so pretty on my pigmented lips. The only other Buxom gloss I have tried was Dolly which was very sheer and didn't wear well, so it had been quite a while since I tried Buxom glosses again. At the suggestion of the MU artist, I tried Gabby because it was a shade I was describing that I wanted....and boy, I'm glad I gave it a try! As far as the "tingle" and minty feel/taste, it doesn't bother me and I don't notice a difference in my pout but I have full lips to begin with. Love!

I bought this after looking at several lip glosses at Ulta. This one appeared to be the perfect mauve/berry shade with a hint of metallic glimmer. I swatched it on my wrist and I was heartened to find that it was not too sheer and that the color looked great. Well, too bad lip gloss isn't meant to be worn on wrists because this gloss looked completely different on my lips - somehow it transformed into a rusty color that was most unbecoming.
Also worth mentioning is that I did not experience lip plumping after using this - if anything, the vertical wrinkles seemed to be more pronounced on my lips. What I did experience was a terrible tingling sensation from the menthone glycerin acetal (the fifth ingredient!). I am sick and tired of cosmetics companies adding this ingredient that provides only the sensation of something happening - and nothing more. The ingredient in and of itself does nothing and only serves to irritate the skin.

I've been trying to grow my Buxom collection, since I adore the formula. I've also been wanting to try some new shades that I wouldn't typically be comfortable and Gabby is one of them. Like others have said, it's a deep mauve with a touch of brown and the first time I tried it, I was nervous, but it looked awesome. I'm also going get Lana, Brandi and Candi and will hopefully get the same awesome results!

This is my HG lipgloss. LOVE it and everything about it: the minty/refreshing feeling on my lips, the color payoff, and how long the color lasts. I love that it's not sticky either. Gabby in particular is a great neutral mauvey-brown for every day. The Buxom lipglosses stay on my lips longer than the lipsticks I use. I highly recommend it!

For years, my favorite lipgloss color has been NARS Eros. It is the most perfect berry plum shimmer gloss I've ever seen... but it is absolute RANK smelling and, unfortunately, it is in a pot and I just prefer wand glosses over pot glosses. I try to wear the Eros and it looks so pretty... but smells so nasty, even a brand new one, so I wipe it off and wear something else. For as long as I've had Eros sitting in my makeup drawer, I've been looking for an equal in color, but an improvement in delivery/scent/taste. After trying countless YSL, Dior, Chanel, NARS, MAC, Guerlain, etc. shades... I finally find Eros' equal in BE's Gabby Buxom. Color me surprised!
I have loved the buxom glosses since they came out. I like the tingly menthol-y maple-y sweet scent/flavor, and I like the level of stickiness. (I like a sticky gloss... slippery glosses gross me out) Gabby is a gorgeous berry plum with multicolored microshimmer. It isn't frosty, it's that kind of shimmer that makes your lips look fuller without making you look like an extra in a Bon Jovi Video circa 1987. It has a beautiful medium to deep berry tone to it, and of course, it's glossy. It's actually sort of a more intense version of the Brandi buxom... so if you liked that one, this one might work too.

Another great product from BE!! These colors are gorgeous! I played around a bit before I finally found my color - Gabby @ Ulta. I love the light cooling sensation and my lips are already pretty filled out but I'm sure this helps somewhat. This does not hurt my lips at all, no stinging, and the colors lasts. They have sheer glosses and full color glosses, the sheer ones are more sparkly though. Gabby is one of their sheer sparkly colors.
