Great fuchsia that reads somewhere between a matte and a cream finish. Very long wearing for a lipstick. Can be worn over lip balm and wears great under gloss. Packaging is fantastic, with a built in sharpener for more precise application. Left it in the car in hot weather for a few hours and it was fine. Slight menthol smell/flavor. Does make my lips look fuller, although I doubt that's real "plumping" action and is just the appearance.

Great little pencil! Not quite as eye-searingly bright as I was hoping, but pretty true to the descriptions above. Very long lasting on me considering I tend to chew my lips--barely moves even when I eat with it on--and not at all prone to feathering. the pencil shape makes application super simple and precise, and I actually LOVE how tingly and cold this feels. I don't think it does any plumping (I never notice that any plumping product does what it says, I think it's a gimmicky fraud), but it certainly feels great, and the feeling sticks around for a while.

I'm also impressed that despite the wear this has yet to dry out my lips. Awesome!

Love this!! I really like the packaging, color and quality!! I think for a bare minerals product its a little pricey, but no buyer's remorse...the color is amazing...really brings out my blue eyes, and makes my skin look glowing! Wore with very minimal make up otherwise, but felt confident and lovely!!! can't wait to try other colors now that I know the formulation is so nice, and doesn't include the nasty chemicals other brands do

i love this color! I was looking for another pink lipstick that wasnt as bright as my MUFE 36. I love this! This is my first Buxom LS and I would definitely go back to Sephora and purchase the other colors. it stays on pretty well, I only got the tiniest wear but I didn't have to reapply at all. I love the tingly feeling i get, (although I dont really think it does any plumping) and I love that it works as both a lipliner and LS. I will definitely repurchase! plus its a dollar cheaper than MUFE

I looooove this! I was at Sephora looking for a fun, bright lipstick, and when I tried on this one, I knew it was the one. On my lips, it shows up as a super bright hot pink/magenta shade. I uploaded a picture of me wearing it, and as you can see, it's definitely bold but I got compliments all night and felt so confident wearing it. I didn't reapply the entire night (the color faded the tiniest bit, but still looked bright pink in pictures). As for lip plumping, the effect was minor, if present at all, but the color and lasting power made up for it! I really liked how I could line and fill my lips with one product. Great!
