BareMinerals’ buxom Julie (I)

<strong>Note:</strong> This is first Buxom lip polish to have this name. If you're looking for the current version, check the Full-on Lip Polish lineup.

This is my favorite color from this kit! It's a gorgeous peach-pink that looks especially good over BE's new French Pastry lipstick. I haven't tried this over Marrakech yet, but I suspect that Julie would add just enough pink that the color would look good for a nude-lip look on me, rather than “oh, she's been ill and is just recovering”. (Marrakech is just not a flattering shade on me. And paired with Amber, as it was in the <a href=”/such/obsessive/addictions/bareminerals_buxom_city_slickers_kit/”>Buxom City Slickers</a>...? A definite “no-go”.) I initially thought Julie would be nice enough, but nothing really special.

Well surprise, surprise

Photos that show how the product actually performs...! See how I create my swatches

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the lip color in the tube; top right, the color applied over bare skin, to better show the shade; and below, the color applied to the lips.

I should probably stop doing that - preguessing my reactions to the colors based on photos and descriptions. When I first saw the photo for <a href=”/such/obsessive/addictions/bareminerals_buxom_babes_winter_escapade_kit/”>Buxom Babes Winter Escapade</a>, I mentally wrote Joy off as utterly worthless, and thought that Merry would be something of a challenge, and possibly too brown. Instead, those are not only my favorites from that kit, but some of my favorite lip polish colors.
