All of the buxom glosses I have owned and used up (dolly, bunny, Katie, and White Russian) have been amazing. They wear a long time, are just the right consistency so they aren't sticky but they don't slide around, and they even relieve chapped lips if you don't have lip balm on hand since they make your lips tingle. These are my HG glosses and the color range is awesome. Only thing I don't like is the bulky packaging. they have the same (or less) amount of product as other glosses but twice as much packaging.

I absolutely love all of the Buxom glosses I own. They're slightly sticky but not annoyingly so, the color payoff is great, the shimmers in the glosses are gorgeous in a chic not teenage way , they last a long time and the have a minty freshness to them that I love. The only qualm I have is the price... at $18 a tube it's on the pricey side for what I like to pay for a gloss but I guess that's standard price for high end brand gloss. Overall, love them. My all time favorite is Katie.

These lip glosses are all wonderful. I have the full sizes of Sugar and Sandy, a deluxe mini in Dolly, then also bought the 6-shade set that came out in Sephora a bit ago, and I love love love them all. I am not a lipstick person and have severe trouble remembering to reapply it even when I do wear it, but Buxom lipglosses make me want to apply them.
Part of it is the peppermint patty sensation you get when you put them on. It doesn't exactly tingle, just makes your lips feel cool. Some "plumping" lipglosses feel like needles pricking your lips and these do not do that. (I want to note here that you do not want to lick your lips for quite a while after applying as most of them taste TERRIBLE.) To my lips, they are also very moisturising. They are initially quite shiny, then fade to a softer gleam after about an hour or so. Depending on what I am doing they can last up for 4 hours. Naturally, drinking and eating tends to cut this time frame.
These are absolutely worth the price point to me. I want the whole collection.

I bought Buxom in Debbie and absolutely love it. The interesting thing about it is the color doesnt look exactly the same each time I apply it. I dont know if its affected by my pigment or perhaps it just plays well off of whatever colors I am wearing, but I love it. Its a light subtle color but still makes my look "finished."

These are my favorite glosses. They leave your lips feeling so plump and moist. And the minty feel is so refreshing!

These are so pretty and smooth but they burn my lips so bad and have too much glitter in some of the shades!

I have a kit of 6 minis of this product and love them all! When applied they feel like medicated lipbalm but look like a gloss. My lips were very dry from another product I was using before trying this gloss and within a couple of days I noticed an improvement. I layer it over the Buxom Lip Stick and together they also look great and plump my lips. I must mention that I also had an esthetics person laser around my lips trying to correct other damage creating a visible ring and it seems to disappear when I wear this product probably because of the plumping ingredients.

Wow, I love this product! I bought it at an outlet store, and I loved it! It felt great on my lips (actually made them feel cool which is nice), slightly plumped, and my hair didn't get stuck in the gloss! The only reason why I haven't repurchased it is because it's over my budget. I need to go back and get some more!!
Overall: LOVE IT!

Lets start by saying I am not a lipgloss person. The only lipglosses I ever liked were the Revlon Superlustrous. And then they dc'd my favorite color. All this and honestly? Glosses just kill my lips and dry them out.
I was so plesantly surprised by these. I bought one and have bought four others over the months: Dolly, Cherry Flip, Pink Lady, Mudslide (I like the Lip Creams), and Mwah (Full-Bodied). These are so nice and moisturizing, the are natural and not over the top. They wear well and are comfortable. They make me want to reapply.
They are expensive. $18 USD, $23 CAD (I'm dual, so I shop wherever I am), and I can honestly say I don't even care how much they are. I just love them. And the line has a ton of range: sparkles, shimmer, sheen, cream, etc. It's got everything.
As for their plumping effect: I can't really say. I have fairly plump lips to begin with. These glosses are VERY minty, which I like. It's refreshing. They are a bit tingly but nothing irritating, in my opinon. But it's something to take into consideration. I think they make my lips look fuller and more alive, but I'm not sure if that's just a general effect of gloss or of this specific gloss. YMMV on this respect.
Overall - these come highly recommended from a lipgloss hater!

A great lip gloss! I have 2 mini sized and one full size and I would buy more! They are so smooth and so glossy. I love it. They have a slight plumping effect that I can see, but nothing too major. They smell like vanilla and my hair doesn't really get stuck as with some other glosses. Great for carrying in your purse!
