BareMinerals’ buxom Hope

For those who already own Dominique buxom, this one won't be much of a surprise - and you'll have a good idea how to use it to best effect: it's a clear tint, so just layer it right over any lip color to add gloss and sparkles. The difference from Dominique is that where Dominique's sparkles are mostly silver iridescent, Hope's are a cooler blue-silver iridescent. This is a very small difference - but where Dominique will add sparkles, Hope doesn't precisely cool the color down a bit, it just matches better with cooler colors.
