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…

BareMinearls’ buxom Sasha

BareMinearls’ buxom Sasha

Friday at 1:15 PM: Sasha is a sheer neutral with a small amount of shimmer. It’s definitely sheer, and all but disappears on my lips. There was no artwork on this kit packaging, so I have no idea which - if any - Buxom artwork was supposed to go with Sasha. This one was paired up with Sydney, a neutral creme lip pencil with faint pink tones.

Meow Cosmetics’ Spark blush

Meow Cosmetics’ Spark blush

Friday at 10:15 AM: Lots of gold sparkle microparticles in this coral-pink base. The sparkle isn’t overly apparent when applied, is more of a soft highlight. The base color flatters the middle range of skintones best, but can work well on a wide variety of cool-neutral to warm-neutral undertones. I don’t know how this blush would work on deep-olive toned skin, or the deepest skintones.

ColourPop’s Lippie Stix in Bichette

Friday at 7:15 AM: I so wanted to love this color! Actually…I do love this color! I’m just very very very not-used to seeing a bold lip on my face, so I don’t reach for it much.

My Pretty Zombie’s Pelodera

Thursday at 7:15 AM: The blue looks very intense - almost intimidating in the pot. Then you apply it and…it’s still pretty, but not so overpowering! It looks a little aqua-leaning in the wet application, but overall it does…

Polish Me Silly’s Mesmerizing

Polish Me Silly’s Mesmerizing

Wednesday at 7:15 AM: The multichrome effects in this one are a little less obvious than some of the other PMS multichromes. It’s a lovely deep violet-blue that occasionally flashes a metallic violet. The formula was a little bubbly,…

Tuesday at 10:15 AM: I own about 20 of these colors - I bought the first batch last summer when they were on 50% off sale, and I bought the second batch a few weeks ago during another sale,…

Monday at 10:14 AM: Medium-deep neutral brown. It has almost a satin finish - the reflectivity is not very strong, and the color shows through pretty clearly. The shimmer particles are also small and scattered. The brown is…well, it’s…
