BareMinerals’ Buxom Rachel

This is not the first color that I bought from the new Buxom lineup. It wasn’t even in the second batch. But I wanted to tell people about it immediately because…it’s essentially clear with shimmer. Oh, there’s a slight tint to the shimmer. It leans ever so slightly purple. But this isn’t like Dani, which is sheer but is definitely a purple. With Rachel, no matter now many coats you build up on your lips, they’re not going to show purple. Nope, nope, nope.

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.

This is not a total write-off. Nor is it an “avoid at all costs.” This is just, most definitely, a “know what you’re getting” because none of the Buxom displays that I’ve seen - in Sephoras or in Ultas - have Rachel available to test. You can’t try before you buy. And there aren’t as many sites with swatches of the new Buxom shades, unless they’ve been in kits.
