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’ Exotic Destinations: Santorini kit

BareMinerals’ Exotic Destinations: Santorini kit

Sunday at 7:15 AM: I think this is the only all-neutrals “Destination” kit, with two browns and a black. Pebbled Beach is a tan with iridescence, but it’s definitely brown. While the combination may not be fascinating, the individual shades are decent - and Santorini was exclusive to this kit. (I don’t think it’s reappeared in any BE kit to date…)

Stila’s Brown Smudge Pot

Stila’s Brown Smudge Pot

Saturday at 10:15 AM: Not quite a blackened brown, but very close. This makes a good liner - for me, it’s a better liner than all-over cream shadow, just because the color is so dark. I can use this…

Sleek Makeup’s Eau La La Liner in Dragon Fruit

Sleek Makeup’s Eau La La Liner in Dragon Fruit

Saturday at 7:15 AM: This liner was a much more positive experience than Melba. The liner sharpened easily, the product didn’t crumble, and the line produced was decent - the pencil was soft enough to apply, but not so…

Maybelline’s Colorsensational lipstick in Pink Pop (860)

Maybelline’s Colorsensational lipstick in Pink Pop (860)

Friday at 1:15 PM: I thought this would lean more magenta. It’s…a bit lighter than I expected. This shade isn’t something I prefer to wear. The coverage is good. This performs as well as my other matte/creme Colorsensational lipsticks.…

BareMinerals’ Gold Gossamer highlighter

BareMinerals’ Gold Gossamer highlighter

Friday at 10:15 AM: Soft metallic gold highlight powder - it can’t really be used to do metallic lining or what have you, but a dusting of this over a lipstick gives a really interesting topcoat! Does work nicely…

Covergirl’s Colorlicious Lipstick in Spellbound (325)

Covergirl’s Colorlicious Lipstick in Spellbound (325)

Friday at 7:15 AM: I picked this color up on a whim. It’s almost - ALMOST - too bright for me to want to reach for daily, but it’s a great shade for me. The coverage is decent for…

Shiro Cosmetics’ All Kinds of Courage

Shiro Cosmetics’ All Kinds of Courage

Thursday at 7:15 AM: There is some gold shimmer in this, but it’s very scattered and subtle. It lets the base color take center stage. This color is great for me because I can wear blue, but it’s not…
