BUXOM More To Love 5-Piece Eye and Lip Collection - Holiday 2011

More To Love($42) is a Sephora exclusive 5 piece, limited-edition collection that comes with Buxom's best selling full size eye and lip products products. Here's what's in the kit:
  • Big & HealthyTM Lip Polish in Clair
  • Scandal Big & HealthyTM Lip Tarnish
  • Stay-ThereTM Eyeshadow in Collie
  • InsiderTM Eyeliner in Onyx
  • Lash Mascara in Blackest Black

    Big & HealthyTM Lip Polish in Clair is a shimmery, pinky plum. The shimmer creates an illusion of fuller lips and delivers a good dose of shine too. There's a slight tingle that helps with the plumping action. The glossy shine stays on for a good 2-3 hours.
    Big & HealthyTM Lip Tarnish in Scandal is a creamy plum with no hint of shimmer, that claims to plump and moisturize lips with a natural looking stain. There's a light tingle and a minty feel to the lip stain as well. The color stays on for about 4-5 hours and leaves a reddish stain. The Lip Tarnish also comes with a sharpener but, I would have preferred a twist up pencil instead. It feels very moisturizing and keeps lips looking moist for a long time.

    Stay-ThereTM Eyeshadow in Collie is a natural looking peachy, shimmery shade that works well on most skin tones. The color can be layered on to build the intensity. But, I prefer it as a sheer wash. You don't need a primer underneath since it has very minimal to no creasing and works well as an eye base for most shimmery neutral shades.

    Paired with a jet black eyeliner like the InsiderTM Eyeliner in Onyx and Lash Mascara in Blackest Black, it creates the most natural, everyday look.

    Onyx is not the most long lasting eyeliner but, the color is very intense and the twist up form is very convenient to use. It does not tug or pull and works great on the waterline too. Lash Mascara helps separate and lengthen lashes for a clean look. I would have loved more volume from this mascara since I have very sparse lashes. But, together with the eyeshadow and eyeliner, it works well to create a natural, clean, everyday look.

    Overall, this is one well put together kit that contains mostly wearable shades and the full sized products make it a great value as well. All products are travel friendly and are formulated without Parabens, Sulfates & Phthalates.
