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…

Bite Beauty’s Best Bite Rewind kit

Bite Beauty’s Best Bite Rewind kit

Tuesday at 10:15 AM: I didn’t really latch on to the Bite Beauty brand and hype. The colors looked nice, but the price tag was a bit on the high side for lipsticks, no matter how lovely the colors looked. I did get two of their holiday kits, to try the lip colors out. While the colors are lovely and perform fairly well, I am not fond enough of them to pay USD$24 per matte creme lip crayon.

BareMinerals’ Tropical Getaway kit

BareMinerals’ Tropical Getaway kit

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: A kit assembled out of existing BE colors. The blush was, at the time, the HTF (hard to find) discontinued color. I look at this color palette and…it needs a cool eye color. A medium grey or brown, at least. Coconut Palm, maybe?

Shiro Cosmetics’ Don’t Hurt Me

Shiro Cosmetics’ Don’t Hurt Me

Monday at 10:14 AM: If BE’s recent-ish eyeshadow Heart’s Desire had more pigmentation, it would have been this. The purple is just the slightest bit smoked, and the color shows cooler when applied than it appears in the pot.

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…

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…

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,…
