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.

Tarte’s Lipsurgence Skintuitive Lip Tint in Energy

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 give that a try! It does change color with my skin chemistry, but the color change takes a while to show up. (And of course, it doesn’t necessarily stay put. And if I have to touch it up after I’ve eaten or drunk anything, that…

My Pretty Zombie’s Bettie

Thursday at 7:15 AM: Kind of a turquoise-aqua with very minimal visible finish. It’s brighter, but not a full-on neon; but I can see folks who are not generally blue-eyeshadow people having trouble deciding how to wear this color.…

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: Metallic medium green with a faint - very faint - red duochrome effect. (Toe-tally Cosmic, from Polish Me Silly, is the same color but does a much better job of a pronounced colorshift.)

Tuesday at 10:15 AM: Some pastels, some softer colors…and two blues that are a bit deeper and more saturated than the rest of the collection :) Desert Poppy was a repromote from two summers ago. I didn’t pick it…

Beauty from the Earth’s Amber

Beauty from the Earth’s Amber

Monday at 10:15 AM: A pretty color, with great pigmentation. The color is saturated enough that it looks great as a liner, but not so deep that it’s almost a blackened brown that defines very strongly and sharply.

Persephone Minerals’ Withering Roses

Monday at 7:15 AM: When swatching this one, I kept thinking that I’d already done this, or that another indie company had a similar color with the same name! Well…close! The SheSpace had a color “Wilted Roses” as part…
