Buxom Lip Polish Review and Swatches

If you don’t like a little tingle, you’re going to hate this gorgeous gloss.

I originally tried the Buxom Lip Polishes years ago and wasn’t into the plumping effect. However, I was always drawn to the amazing color selection and vanilla scent. Plus so many Youtubers rave about the formula and the cute packaging is tempting.

Over the weekend, I popped into Sephora for the VIB Rouge sale and noticed the glosses were only $8 with the once-a-year discount. Since they’re normally $22 a pop, I grabbed a couple to try out.

There were tons of shades, but I finally decided on Kanani, a bubblegum pink, and Ava, a pretty nude. Ava is much more opaque than Kanani on the lips, and they both have a pretty shimmer without looking glittery.

IMG_2400I definitely feel the tingling sensation, but it’s not as unpleasant as I remembered. The plumping effect isn’t dramatic either – I don’t really see the difference in lip size or volume while wearing these glosses. I think the shimmer may emphasize the lips in a pouty way.

The Buxom Lip Polish is also so long lasting as far as gloss formulas which I appreciate because I don’t have time to touch up very often. This means it is a little sticky for a lip gloss, but it doesn’t bother me as much as I expected. I like that it fades in a relatively non-weird way as well and seems to keep my lips pretty moisturized.

This gloss impressed me enough that I ended up ordering a few more shades to give as gifts! The names match those of some friends which is too cute to pass up.

 

Pros:

Long lasting

Extensive color selection

Cons:

Unsure about pluming aspect

Varied opacity
