I am just like the rest of the girls in the world when it comes to makeup… we love it! I will admit I have taken it too extremes and spent way too much money on makeup and other various beauty products. These days, adulating has kicked in a my budget is much smaller, than in my high school days, so I prefer to stick to the things I love and be a bit more conservative, when it comes to my makeup spending. However, when I find something I love, like these Buxom Lip products, chances are I’m going to buy few!
Devoting an entire post to a lip gloss review, might seem a little strange to you, but when it’s good, it’s good. I recently just discovered Buxom Full-On lip products, many years after they were launched I know, but it’s better to share them late, then never! I have known for quite a while that I wanted to talk about these on the blog, but I just wasn’t sure how to format this post, or if you would even want to see something like this. Be sure to let me know if you would like more beauty product reviews.
There are many reasons why I love these glosses, but the main reason is for there lasting qualities. I have purchased many lip glosses over the years and I usually remain faithful to Chanel and YSL glosses, however the staying power of the Buxom Full-On lip products is amazing and unrivaled by anything I have ever tried. These are honestly the longest lasting lip gloss I have never tried. I have two of these glosses one is the Buxom Full-On Lip Polish and the other the Full-On Lip Creme, so I though I would break down this review into a review of each product and discuss some of my favorite things about each!
Buxom Full-On Lip Glosses (Both Polish and Cream)
Buxom has really created a wonderful product with their Full-On Lip glosses. I love both of the Lip Polish and the Lip Cream that I have, and really look forward to purchasing more. The consistency of these glosses is quite sticky, but I don’t find it so sticky that it is uncomfortable. The stickier consistency lays the perfect foundation for a long wearing, and lasting, gloss. Personally, I always find myself smudging my lips together and just being really fidgety with my lip products. The consistency of these glosses, however keeps me from doing that, and I am able to just let my lips be! The difference between the two really is found in the color payoff, the cream provides a more cohesive color, however both glosses are still relatively sheer. In my opinion, that is just the nature of the gloss! Here is a quick overview of my thoughts on both glosses:
Consistency: Sticky, but the sticky consistency allows for a longer lasting effect! Like, really long!
Taste: Not so great. The sour minty flavor tastes pretty bad, but the gloss itself smells nice, kind of like a warm nutty scent. It doesn’t match the taste at all!
Plumpling Effect: The light tingling effect that this product gives, makes my lips a lip more colorful that what they usually are. I don’t really think that it plumps them all that much, but I really love the feeling that the plumping products give. It makes my lips feel so cool and refreshed!
Color: The pigmentation of these two glosses is pretty sheer, especially in the two shades that I own.
Buxom Full-On Lip Polish
The Buxom Full-On Lip Polish was the first of my two purchases. I instantly fell in love with the shade Erin, because of its irresistible bubblegum pink coloring. this shade is describe as “blushing lavender,” but the little girl in me see’s bubblegum pink with a splash of glitter! The shade is beautiful in the packaging, however the color pay off is hardly noticeable. For me, this isn’t a turn off because I usually just layer this over top of any pink shade I have and it does its job! You will find a slight pink tint to the lips, but there isn’t a full on color change. This gloss stays shiny for long periods of time, and the minty lip plumping effect, keeps my lips cool and feeling fresh! I love how all of the Lip Polishes have a shimmer to them and they have a huge selection of color options. The Lip Polish Formula comes in 4 finishes: Glitter, High Shine, Metallic Finish and Shimmer. The Erin shade that is shown here is the high Shine Finish, which I love! It is shiny and the little bit of glitter creates a beautiful shimmer.
Buxom Full-On Lip Cream
The Buxom Full-On Lip Cream is very similar to the Lip Polish. The formula itself is basically the same, the only difference that I have found is in the pigmentation of the gloss. The pigmentation of the Lip Cream, is obviously more creamy. The color pay of is a little bit stronger and the the color itself appears more milky, or creamy should I say. The gloss is still glossy with a beautiful shine, however the Lip Creams do no have any shimmer. They come only in a High Shine finish and has a more limited, but still sufficient, variety of colors. I own the color White Russian which is a beautiful sheer nude color.
I hope that you found this post helpful! I really love these glosses and I know you will too. IF you have any questions, or requests, please let me know.
