BUXOM Time To Shine 6-Piece Mini Lip Collection

A six-piece, limited-edition holiday collection from BUXOM, the Time To Shine ($29) set comes with two of the Big & Healthy Lip Cremes and four Lip Polishes, all in mini sizes, in a variety of finishes. The collection includes Big & Healthy Mini Lip Polishes (Sheer) in Sugar and Katie, Big & Healthy Mini Lip Polishes (Diamond) in Gina and April and the Big & Healthy Mini Lip Cremes in Berry Blast & White Russian.

The Lip Cremes go on smooth, don't have any shimmer and have a slight tingle to them. They aren't sticky and feel more like a smooth, slick liquid lipstick. I get about 2-3 hours of wear time and the wonderfully comfortable texture feels very nourishing on dry lips. Berry Blast, a medium fuchsia is a great color for pigmented lips like mine and White Russian is a lovely pinky nude to pair with a smokey eye. The Lip Polishes on the other hand, are quite shimmery and have a slight, sticky texture, because of which they last a little longer. The colors in this set are fabulous and have a super shiny, glossy, wet finish to them. Both the Big & Healthy Lip Polish and the Lip Creme have a slight tingle to them and plump lips in a subtle way.

Overall, a great set with a beautiful selection of a variety of Buxom's Big & Healthy lip products that come with a fabulous price tag. I love the mix of different finishes in here. The mini sizes aren't tiny either and will last you quite a while!

  1. It seems to be a fair deal for 6 glosses. Speaking of lip products, I got my hands on L'Oreal The Mystic's Kiss! It's so pretty, and it's a true purple on me! The one problem is that it fades too quickly. :(

    1. I know, I thought it was a great deal too! Ooh, The Mystic's Kiss is pretty! I also don't like the smell those L'Oreal lipsticks have...kinda cloying :/

  2. Amazing! Love the colors. i think I am going to try one of these lip glosses. They are kinda new to me but I am willing to give it a try.
