Review & Swatches: Buxom Full-On Lip Cream

Hey guys,

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.

Buxom_LipCreamThe product comes in simple white packaging with the Buxom logo and is housed in a clear matte frosted tube with a doe foot applicator.

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 πŸ˜€

Here’s a closer look at these gorgeous lip creams.

Buxom_LipCream_MaiTaiBuxom_LipCream_MaiTai_SwatchMai 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.

Buxom_LipCream_LavenderCosmoBuxom_LipCream_LavenderCosmo_SwatchLavender 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.

THE VERDICT:

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?

Summer Sephora Haul

Hey guys πŸ˜€

So apart from eating loads of good food and hanging out with the family, shopping is one of my favorite holiday activities πŸ˜€ LOL!! Some may even call it a sport!! Every time I come to the US I load up on makeup and clothing. Especially brands you cant really get out in Europe and certainly not really out in Denmark.

First stop was Sephora to get some products I’ve been wanting to try and repurchases of things I’ve ran out of. So here’s what I got on my fruitful trip to wonderful Sephora on Powell street in SF.

Sephora_Haul

I picked up 2 eye shadow palettes

Sephora_Haul_TooFaced

The Too Faced Loves Sephora Palette ($52). Its a limited edition palette boasting 10 awesome eye shadow shades, two bronzers, a blush, a brush that I’m not excited about, and a mini shadow insurance.

Sephora_Haul_Stilla

I Also picked up the Stilla In The Light Eye Shadow Palette ($39).Β This palette also comes with 10 shades and a smudge proof waterproof eyeliner in Damsel. Ive been eying this bad boy for over a year now. I don’t really need another neutral palette but I just gave in. Plus Ive been wanting to try the Kitten shade for ever!!!!

Sephora_Haul_JosieMaran

The Josie Maran Argan Infinity Cream was next on my list ($28). I actually tried to get my brother to pick this up for me before he came to visit at Easter time but they were all sold out. Its meant to be an all over miracle cream. It claims to moisturize, sooth irritated skin, great for dry elbows, keep stray eyebrows in place, smooth flyaways, prevent or sooth razor burn, use as a lip conditioner, the list is endless really!!! Ive heard raving reviews and I’m really excited to try it out. Especially for my super dry elbow and occasional dry patches around my nose and chin.

Sephora_Haul_Buxom

Ive always wanted to try one of the Buxom Full-on Lip Creams ($19). So I picked up one of the newer shades in Mai Tai. Its a super bright coral orange, a shade I’m mighty obsessed with this summer πŸ˜€

Sephora_Haul_Tarte

And lastly I picked up the Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Mascara ($19). This is my holy grail mascara. Its amazing, especially over the Tarte primer. I ran out a few months ago so I had to pick up another one. I might even get one more back up because who knows when ill be back in the US as Ive got thesis writing coming up next semester.

I’m sure I’ll have plenty more beauty hauls to come. I for sure need to go back to Sephora and pick up a stash of Clarasonic heads, and repurchase my Josie Maran Argan Oil. I also need to pick up a new face wash. I’m using The Philosophy Purity cleanser. Its great but I think I’m ready to try something new since Ive been using that non stop for a year now and its almost done. If you have any suggestions on great cleansers for dry to combination and sensitive skin then please let me know πŸ˜€
