Ive got another lip product review to share with you all. I hope its not too repetitive at the moment with all the lippy reviews but since its summer these are my favorite types of products to try out and wear. They make any look put together without tremendous time or effort. Sometimes dewy skin, mascara and a bright lip is all you need on a beautiful and warm summer day.
Enough rambling…today I’d like to share my thoughts on the Buxom Full-On Lip Creams ($19) in Mai Tai and Lavender Cosmo. Available here through Sephora or your local Bare Escentuals counter.
The Lip Creams are a shimmer and glittery free gloss with a plumping effect. The formula is super smooth and soft, no streaking or settling into fine lines. The finish is a super wow high impact gloss that plumps the lips for a perfect pout. The smell is rather light but so delicious like vanilla coconut cream.
There is definitely some peppermint or spearmint up in these babies. You cant smell it in the tube but you can definitely feel it and smell it once it’s on your lips. There’s a slight tingling sensation but not uncomfortable or painful like some plumping glosses (namely the NYX lip injector…ouch that made my lips burn so bad, they felt like they were on fire!!!). I actually really love the freshness this brings to my lips. It even makes my breath smell fresh 😀
Here’s a closer look at these gorgeous lip creams.
Mai Tai: Creamy coral. This one is a bit sheer but looks really effortless and fresh on the lips. It just gives that slight hint of color. Great for those not wanting to venture into the full on neon and bright corals available out there at the moment. The longevity is pretty amazing..it lasted about 4 hours with drinking.
Lavender Cosmo: A creamy lavender baby pink. The pigmentation is superb on this one. Its a beautiful and opaque (for a gloss). A super bang on trend shade for this summer. The longevity was also pretty impressive.
9/10 for these gorgeous cream glosses. The minty tingly sensation is refreshing and definitely adds a bit of plump. The super high gloss finish is exceptional, also adding to the plump factor. The formula is easy to use, super creamy and feels very comfortable. Not sticky at all. The pigmentation on Mai Tai wasn’t amazing but still absolutely gorgeous non the less. Lavender Cosmo was the stand out for me in terms of pigmentation. I’d love to test out a few more as there are so many beautiful colors form this range including some gorgeous nudes and deep plums.
Have you tried the Buxom Full-On Lip Creams? Whats your favorite shade?
