BareMinerals’ buxom Couture Leslie

When the buxom duo of Leslie and Lisa were first announced on QVC, it was mentioned that the Leslie buxom was essentially Dolly, tweaked. I didn't buy the regular Leslie and Lisa buxom duo, and after seeing the two buxoms and especially after comparing Leslie Couture to Dolly, I'm glad I didn't buy the “regular” versions. I would have felt intensely cheated.

The primary difference between Dolly and Leslie Couture seems to be that Dolly has no shimmer, whereas Leslie Couture has blue and silver sparkle. I’m not entirely sure, but looking at the two tubes side by side - Dolly and Leslie Couture - it seems like Leslie is just a tiny bit more red than Dolly.
