BareMinerals’ buxom Joy

This is the only yellow buxom I've seen - leaving the buxom lip tint out of it for a minute. I like the fact that it's golden, so it's not a full-on warm; the sparkles, so that it's not just golden; and the magic-factor. What magic-factor, you ask? Why, this one: while I was up battling the demons of insomnia, I was rearranging my makeup and decided to try layering Joy buxom over Gingersnap lip color - a color that I'd gotten, but wasn't able to wear often because it was so very close to being outside my “easily wearable” range. Kind of brown, a little warmth, not too dark, but not anything that really pulled a look together. I tried these two colors, and was really pleased at the result. I never would have thought I'd get this effect from that combination…but it happened.
