BUXOM Full-Bodied Lip Gloss

The Full-Bodied Lip Glosses ($19) are a new launch from BUXOM for fall that offer hydration, fullness and  high shine without the tingle. The moisturizing formula with hyaluronic spheres hydrates and plumps lips for a smoother, fuller look.

The coverage ranges from sheer to medium, some of them being more shimmery than others. They have an ultra smooth texture that feels a little thick at first but, settles down to a glossy looking finish after a couple of minutes. The glosses aren't very sticky and last about 3-4 hours and fade evenly without leaving any shimmer behind. The thin sponge applicator picks up and deposits color perfectly.

                                 L-R : Hot Mama, Boo Ya, Sha Bang, Oh La La, Va Va Voom  

Hot Mama - A sheer, juicy red with barely there shimmer. Since there isn't a ton of pigment, it looks amazing on its own and very flattering on a lot of medium-dark skin tones.
Boo Ya - Peachy, golden coral with a slight frosty finish. It looks better layered over a lipstick than on its own.
Sha Bang - A medium shimmery plum with pink shimmer. I've worn this shade a lot and absolutely love the way it works with my complexion. The color isn't too dark which makes it perfect to be worn on its own or when paired with another lipstick.
Oh La La - A creamy, pale pink with no shimmer or glitter. Perfect shade to be paired with a smokey eye. It works really well when layered over a nude lipstick too.
Va Va Voom - Dark, berry pink with gold shimmer. A gorgeous shade for fall and winter. It is more pigmented than the others but, very wearable and super glossy.

Buxom Full-Bodied Lip Gloss in Oh La La

These glosses have a very slight, sweet scent that I don't mind. I also think they have the perfect consistency for a gloss and have a subtle plumping effect without tingling or irritating lips. I'm very impressed by the amazing formula and the beautiful shade selection. Definitely worth picking up a shade or two!

Available online at and Sephora stores.
