For a Plump Pout, Try These Creamy New Buxom Full-Bodied Lipsticks

Published in: Buxom, Collections, Lips, Makeup, Product Reviews

I’ve been glued to glosses for at least the past decade (give or take a year or two). Yup, I’m a gloss girl — the gal in the group who’ll whip out her makeup bag to touch up after lunch at the table, and then spend five minutes sifting through handfuls of tubes to find the perfect shiny shade while everyone else sips coffee.

What can I say? I like gloss. I think it makes my lips look fuller, and I even feel a little younger when I wear it, too.

Ah, but Buxom’s new line of unscented, unflavored Full-Bodied Lipsticks is currently threatening to turn me into a full-time lipstick lady. When I wear one of these 10 creamy, satin-finish shades, each one of them loaded with hydrating hyaluronic spheres, my pout does appear a little plumper (no sting or tingling sensation, though) — like I’ve been locking lips with someone at work in the supply closet — and it stays that way from 4-5 hours (or until my next meal).

The New bareMinerals Remix Collection and Buxom Divine Goddess Luminizer: Club Kids, We’re Pressing Fast-Forward to Summer

Published in: bareMinerals, Buxom, Makeup

The new bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow 4.0 in The Wild Thing ($30), from the new Remix collection

Heck, YES! I’d love to go clubbing with you. Are you serious?? Because I’m totally down. We could even wear the new club-themed bareMinerals Remix collection.

But wait — I can only go if we leave the house by 9 and get home by 11:30, midnight at the latest, because that’s when my pumpkin turns back into a carriage.

I love to dance, but I do not need to be shaking my 30-something-year-old groove thing past midnight. Seriously, I don’t.

On second thought, we should leave the club by 11, because I want to be in bed, under the covers, with my mouthguard on (dude, I totally grind my teeth; it sucks!) by midnight.

LOL! Don’t laugh. :) Last time I checked, there wasn’t a rule that says we can’t go out early and come home by midnight. It’s like clubbing 2.0, the remix. You get all the fun of clubbing while being fully functional the next day. Win, win!

Okay, now that we’re done making fun of my tired @ss, let’s get to the good stuff, the new bareMinerals spring Remix collection, which arrives next month (in the middle of winter).

Entering’s a snap (details down below), and chances are you probably already have a perfect picture of yourself that you could use. Something that makes you smile from a happy time in your life. :)

Your pic doesn’t have to be makeup or beauty related, either, although it could be (perhaps flaunting a bright mani, or smiling in a face of the day). It just has to portray you “living life vividly,” like how I’m making a silly face in the pic above (see a few more examples here).


Yeah…you also don’t have to be making goofy faces in your entry (I just like to!)

Here’s how to enter

  1. Visit www.flickr.com and upload a photo that displays you “living life vividly,” as well as a short caption (200 characters or less) that explains the photo.
  2. Mark the photo as “public” (so I’m able to view it).
  3. Tag it with the following tag:
    • BuxomPhotoContestMakeupandBeautyBlog

A $500 Visa® gift card and an assortment of Buxom® cosmetics, including two (2) Buxom Color Choreography eye shadow palettes, one (1) Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Polish, and one (1) Buxom Lash (volumizing mascara).

Approximate retail value: $609!

One very happy girl and her banana frosty on the North Shore of Kauai

This series is brought to you by Buxom Color Choreography Eyeshadow. Buxom wants to inspire you to live life vividly.

So. Much. Beauty.

If your beauty wishlist is anything like mine, it just keeps getting longer every single day.

What’s up with that? :)

A blush here, a mascara there — and before you know it, your wishlist reads like a novella.

If you’re ready to start crossing a few of those things off your beauty wishlist, don’t forget to enter the Makeup and Beauty Blog Buxom Photo Contest if you haven’t already.

You could take home a $500 Visa gift card and a selection of beautiful Buxom makeup worth an additional $109.

All told, it’s a prize package worth $609.

And entering couldn’t be a whole lot easier. Full details are down below, but here’s the gist of it: submit a picture of yourself in which you’re “living life vividly.”

Maybe something from a recent vacation, or a shot of yourself just having fun.

NOTE: Goofy face shots totally count…


This is how we do it!

…as do happy faces and big smiles. :)


The beach makes everything better (even cold beaches like this one here!)

You might even have a perfect picture already, like how about that pic you took of yourself in that bright makeup look you did for Halloween?


Next stop: the grocery store!

Or how about a pic of yourself sporting a pair of bright, glossy lips?


Can you spot the husky tabby in this picture?

Highlights and life-changing hairdos also work!

Whatever you choose, your entries (remember, you can enter up to three pics) just have to show you “living life vividly,” like the pictures in this post.

For even more entry ideas, here’s a look at all of the entries so far.

Here’s how to enter
