The Buxom Freezes Over 15-Piece Mini Lip Collection and 6 Degrees Below Sexy Plumping 6-Piece Mini Full-On Lip Polish Collection Sets

I’m wearing Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in Berry Bramble from the 15-piece Buxom Freezes Over kit

Um…this coat is ridiculous.

I live in Northern California and freak out when it drops below 40 degrees. What do I need an arctic explorer’s coat for? I can barely see out of the hood!

Haha! Yup, I made myself laugh. 🙂 I love that.

I’m wearing the coat because it seemed fitting for pics of these two new holiday lip kits from Buxom — the 15-piece Buxom Freezes Over kit and six-piece 6° Below Sexy.

The bigger kit has three different mini lip formulas, including five super shiny Full-On Lip Polishes, five not-so-shiny Full On Lip Creams (both of which apply with a good deal of pigment but get sheerer over time) and five even less shiny Wildly Whipped Lightweight Liquid Lipsticks, while the smaller kit’s lippies are just straight-up tinted shine.

All of the items in both kits are supposed to be plumping, but they aren’t the kind of plumping that hurts (thankfully!). There’s no sting. It’s more of a visual illusion (one that I can’t say I really notice), and they’re all very comfortable, just like every Buxom lip product I’ve ever worn.

I’m wearing the dark plummy Wildly Whipped Lightweight Liquid Lipstick, which smells and tastes faintly of vanilla, to go with my plum eye look, and the formula feels light and wonderful, kind of like painting my lips with fluffy cream cheese…

Here I’m wearing Wildly Whipped Lightweight Liquid Lipstick in Criminal from the Buxom Freezes Over set

Pretty good coverage, too.

I’m not sure how long it lasts because I’m about to take it off to have breakfast (El Hub got donuts!!!!), but based on the feel, I expect it would last a few hours.

Conquering My Fear of the Buxom Full-On Lip Creams

Published in: Buxom, Guest Post, Lips, Makeup

Well…they sure do look good, right?

Full Disclosure: I’ve been afraid to try the Buxom Full-On Lip Cream for ages.

I heard them described as “plumping” and “tingling” and was like, “Oooh, girl. No.” Like, I was seriously nervous about trying these glosses! But because I take my job as a beauty blogger very seriously, I finally took the plunge.

There are 15 shades in all, $20 each (available now at Ulta), and I have five of them here — Peach Daiquiri, Pink Champagne, Grape Groove, Sangria and Berry Bramble.

First up is Peach Daiquiri, which is very sheer with just a hint of a peachy undertone. On my bare lips, it’s not particularly groundbreaking, BUT I do think it would look nice over a nude lipstick to give it a little life.

Pink Champagne is another very light gloss that would probably work better over a lipstick than on its own, at least for me. 

Both Peach Daiquiri and Pink Champagne are kind of high maintenance, though, in that lines form and the color clumps a little when I press my lips together.

An All-Matte FOTD With the Buxom Suede Seduction Eyeshadow Palette

Published in: Buxom, Face of the Day (FOTD), Guest Post

Trying an all-matte makeup look today with the Buxom Suede Seduction Eyeshadow Palette

Yes, you read that right — all matte! — which is a big jump for me because, as you guys probably know about me by now, I live for the GLOW. I like my eyeshadows sparkly, my blush shimmery and my lips glossy.

But I felt like challenging myself today with a look using all matte products, and the Buxom Suede Seduction Eyeshadow Palette, which is available now at Ulta for $40, has five neutral matte shades.

The subtle shades in the Buxom Suede Seduction Eyeshadow Palette

I really how it turned out! I’m surprised! I think it’s a classic makeup look. I certainly won’t be abandoning my hoard of glowy things, but I can incorporate more matte finishes into my makeup routine. I think this makeup would be very appropriate for a job interview or for some kind of professional pictures. I remember a while back that Marcella emailed Karen and all of us interns asking for advice on makeup for a job interview, and if I’d known about this Buxom palette then, I definitely would have recommended it!

The shadows are very soft and easy to blend. Plus, the colors aren’t too warm or cool, so they’re super versatile.

Some of my picks for “The Best Spring and Summer Makeup Launches”

Whew! There has been so much good makeup lately.

I mean, I used to get more excited about moody fall colors, but this year the spring and summer collections have been incredible! Literally, every time I turn around, I’m seeing another gorgeous collection.

If your head has been spinning a little like mine, then I hope you’ll like my picks for some of the best spring/summer makeup launches. I’d also love to hear yours.

My favorite new piece lately is probably the $52 Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette

I think I’ll start with lips, because I think a new lipstick or gloss is probably the easiest way to update your look.

Some of my favorite new lippies from Tarte, Buxom, ColourPop and Lancome

First up, the Tarteist Glossy Lip Paint by Tarte, and I have the shade called Double Tap (here are swatches of the full range in this post).

I’m wearing cool-toned nude Double Tap in these pics, but I usually go for warmer-toned peaches and pinks. Thing is, this mauve is just so pretty and different from the rest of my stash. It’s opaque and not sticky at all.

Next, Buxom Wildly Whipped Lightweight Liquid Lipstick, and I just mentioned the shade called Swinger in my roundup of my favorite liquid lipsticks, so I’ll be brief now: the color and formula are AMAZING. This one is perfect for summer.

Of course, I couldn’t talk about this season’s new launches without mentioning beautiful ColourPop Dohee.

Here’s a snap of me wearing it from my Spring Haul video.

My Current Favorite Liquid Lipsticks

I’ve definitely tried my fair share of liquid lipsticks (most recently, the NARS Lip Covers), and I love the look of matte liquid lipsticks in general. It’s interesting to me how each brand handles them a little differently.

I first got into them when Colourpop exploded onto the scene with their “Ultra Matte” liquid lipsticks last summer (here are some of my favorites from Colourpop, by the way), but I’ve slowly but surely moved to some more forgiving formulas from other brands.

Here’s a quick roundup of my current faves…

My current go-to liquid lipsticks

Buxom Wildly Whipped Lightweight Liquid Lipstick in Centerfold ($21)

I just love it when a product lives up to its name! Buxom Wildly Whipped Lightweight Liquid Lipstick in Centerfold feels super comfortable and lightweight, and the applicator makes it a breeze to neatly apply. The formula doesn’t dry down to 100% matte, but it still stays put through moderate eating and snacking.

The best part, though, is that my lips don’t feel dry at all after wearing this one all day long. If you’re looking for a long-lasting formula that feels good on your lips, definitely check it out. You can find it at Sephora for $21.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita II ($20)

The original Kat Von D Lolita was wildly popular and sold out right away, but when KVD made more, the color was different, which led to Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita II.

I bought a set last fall that had mini sizes of the original Lolita, as well as Lolita II, and I prefer the sequel because the warm terra-cotta tones make it so easy to wear.

The formula dries all the way down to 100% matte, and it’s more resistant to transferring than Buxom Centerfold. But it’s still pretty comfortable on the lips (available now at Sephora for $20).
