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.

L’Oréal’s Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner in Silver

Saturday at 7:15 AM: Metallic silver eyeliners, especially in pencil form, don’t always have the very best track record for good formulas. This one, though - like all of the other Silkissime pencils - applies very easily and smoothly.…

Tarte’s Lipsurgence Skintuitive Lip Tint in Energy

Friday at 7:15 AM: I picked up the Skintuitive shades - both of them - more out of interest than anything. A pink that was supposed to change to be the most flattering sheer pink for me? Sure, I’ll…
