BareMinerals’ buxom Laura

This kit is odd. I like the London lip stick fine enough, after initially thinking, “I am not going to have much of a use for another pink.” I don't know that I'll ever use Laura, though…or let's put it this way: I'm going to have to get inventive and think outside the box to find ways to use this buxom.

Laura is hot pink. I mean, really hot-fuchsia pink. I'm not entirely sure, but I think she's a full-color buxom - this was not a softer sheen of fuchsia, this was full-on color. No shimmer whatsoever. I'm almost tempted to be utterly blitchy and say that this is an utterly chav-tastic color…but I can't see Rose Tyler wearing this. It's too much. (I can't even see Jackie Tyler wearing this color, and that's saying something.)

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.

This was renamed Jill, in the Full On buxom lineup. The color is a little less opaque, but it's the same shade and finish (and artwork.)
