BareMinerals’ buxom Olivia (I)

A gorgeous cool fuchsia-red sparkle finish. There isn't quite as much sparkle as in the various Diamond Buxoms (Sarina, April, Clair, Starr, Dominique) - the sparkle is a little sparser (though barely so.) I like the sparkle as much as I like both the shade and color payoff. I like my semisheer Buxoms, but the ones with a bit more oomph are more appreciated! Sadly, this entire collection was a limited edition; and I haven't noticed too many new Buxom Lip Polishes being added to the regular line. (Come to think of it…here it is nearly summer already, and no Buxom mini kit for spring! The past several years there's been a mini set introduced every six months or so, either four mini lip polishes or a mixture of lip polishes and lip sticks. Maybe that's indicative of Shiseido/BE's new general corporate direction, or perhaps they're just concentrating on the Ready line, the lip tarnishes, and everything else that ShiBE seems to be throwing at the wall to see if it will stick. Not that I have strong feelings on the matter.)

Olivia and Alexa were definitely my favorites out of the Party Central collection.

In 2013 when the Buxom lineup was revamped, a color named Olivia was added - it's warmer than this shade, though.
