Buxom’s Plumpline in Espionage

I like this lineup - the pencils work equally well as a lip liner or a full lip color. (I just wish that there was a wider color range! I’d love to see deeper reds, lighter purples, deeper pinks/roses, and more cool browns.) This berry-red grabbed my attention. It’s a fantastic color for me, it goes well with my coloring and with most other things I’d choose to wear, and it has the standard Plumpline ease of application and finish. It feathered a bit in this photo, but I think that’s because I had put on one lip color, been unhappy with the result, and used makeup remover to take it off…and probably didn’t get all of the remover off of my lips before applying this shade.
