Swatching all the new Buxom lip polishes - so you don’t have to

Swatching all the new Buxom lip polishes - so you don’t have to

Friday at 7:26 AM: I love the Buxom lip polishes. I have ever since I tried my first one. I liked many of the kit-exclusives from the previous lineup and was hopeful when the collection was revamped - but it looks like not all of them made the cut. Additionally, lots of the previous clues that we used to have about finish or opacity are gone. The “diamond” gals’ artwork had visual clues to tell us that they were, in fact, sparkle-finishes, and the…

BareMinerals’ In Bloom

BareMinerals’ In Bloom

Monday at 7:15 AM: This looks like a shimmer finish (or possibly rougher pearl?) when applied dry, and it shows more of the gold. The foiled application is a peachy-pink near-satin finish. I can almost use this as a highlighter shade - or, more easily, I can use this as a near-neutral complement.

BareMinerals’ Buxom Jane

BareMinerals’ Buxom Jane

Sunday at 10:15 AM: I am on the fence about this color. I love the shade, but I don’t love how the pigment seems to really settle into lines in my lips. I like using it to cool down red lipsticks that are a little too orange for me, but I don’t often find myself reaching for this shade. I have the feeling that, one day, I’ll wear it with the absolute perfect outfit to complement it, and I’ll fall in love with this…

BareMinerals’ Buxom Jacqueline

BareMinerals’ Buxom Jacqueline

Sunday at 7:15 AM: Jacqueline lays down a good layer of color. It can add a little depth to softer underlying shades of lipstick, and intensity to medium and deeper colors, though that would require a lot of touching…

Stila’s Sparkle Waterproof Eyeliner in Rock Candy

Stila’s Sparkle Waterproof Eyeliner in Rock Candy

Saturday at 7:15 AM: Not the easiest formula to spread evenly. If I wanted a solid even line I had to either apply, wait, and touch up, or use the longer brush to pat a series of dashes in…

NYX Cosmetics’ Simply Nude lip cream in Disrobed

NYX Cosmetics’ Simply Nude lip cream in Disrobed

Friday at 1:15 PM: Not one of my personal favorite colors, but I can see this being a summer go-to MLBB shade for some. When I wear this, the product looked patchy, and either there was no staining or,…

BareMinerals’ Absolute Indulgence Wild Rose blush

BareMinerals’ Absolute Indulgence Wild Rose blush

Friday at 10:15 AM: This is definitely a softer blush color - it will truly look best on fairer skintones, or layered to slightly tone down deeper or more vivid blushes.

ColourPop’s Lippie Stix in Grunge

ColourPop’s Lippie Stix in Grunge

Friday at 7:15 AM: I was expecting a somewhat softer brown. (Blame the monitor.) I can wear this, though, under some of my Buxom lip polishes, to get a stronger base for those colors. It doesn’t stain like some…

Concrete Minerals’ Xs and Os

Concrete Minerals’ Xs and Os

Thursday at 10:15 AM: This started out as a limited-edition color. It didn’t stay “limited edition”, though! Constant demand for this color got it added into the regular line some time in 2013. The color softens a little bit…
