Which of the 4 New Buxom Stay-There Eye Shadow Shades Will Be Leader of the Pack?

Published in: Makeup

It appears that man’s best friend at Buxom has been seeing a makeup-loving woman on the side! Good morning and happy hump day, cutie. πŸ™‚ Let’s get Wednesday off to a good start with a peek at the four new Buxom Stay-There Eye Shadow colors for spring 2011 ($17 each), which, like Buxom’s 10 previous Stay-There shades, are named after different breeds of dog (woof!).


What’s a Buxom Stay-There Eye Shadow?

With a plush, lightweight texture, these faithful beauty companions come in 14 waterproof shades. Non-greasy and long-wearing, the Buxom Stay-There shadows are always there when you need ’em, looking out for your pretty peepers with a mineral-infused, paraben-free formula enriched with Aloe and Vitamin E.

Tabs said he likes the idea, but he hopes Buxom considers adding a few feline colors to the line (and would like to offer his kitty modeling services if they do). While they mull that over, I’d like to submit a color suggestion if I may — Mystery Mutt, a shimmery golden brown, named after Shauna, my family’s beloved pooch.

Shauna the Wonderdog!

These just hit my desk, so I haven’t been able to test them for wear time yet, but I like the soft, spongy texture and blinged-out shimmer.

Here’s a quick look…

    I like cocker spaniel and collie!

  2. Michelle says:

    I love these. They feel like a marshmellow they’re so soft!

  3. Kim says:

    Oh, Sheepdog, of course. I’m so predictable. πŸ™‚

    Hopefully Buxom is listening to your suggestion of kitty names. They do NOT want to get on Tabs’ bad side. πŸ™‚

  4. Laurina says:

    Cocker Spaniel looks pretty. I have the color Mutt and it is such a beautiful color! i would really recommend it for ladies with blue eyes (but really I think it would look good in almost anyone) these do crease a bit after 6 hours or so but this was without a primer under it. But I do love it and use it as my everyday lid color πŸ™‚

  5. Andrea H says:

    Are these creamy? Or loose powders like other Bareminerals products? They look creamy in the pics, but I just wanted to make sure.

      Hi Andrea,

      Yes, they’re creamy. The texture’s kinda neat. It’s not as dense as a MAC Paint Pot or a Benefit Creaseless Cream… it’s more fluffy/spongy. Try them out next time you’re at Sephora!

  6. Christina says:

    I love the idea of using cream shadows for a base but these look awfully frosty! Can’t wait to see them in a look!

  7. Meredith says:

    hmmm….what about staying power though?

    I have had a lot of MUA recommend paint pots to me but they slide right off my lids no matter how little I use….

    I am anxious to see how long they stay…I love the colors but am wary of wear-time.

  8. Meghan says:

    I love Cocker Spaniel… is it sort of like MAC’s Paint pot in “Rubenesque” because I do not own that and would like to have a base that color. Thanks Karen!

    • Karen says:

      Oh, it does kinda look like Rubenesque. I have that color and it’s slightly more melon on me… it’s a fun shade, especially for summer!

      Anywho, have a great Wednesday!

  9. Kaelin Chan says:

    Oh I do love my shimmery shadows. I’m itching to give Husky a try, looks like a lot of fun to play around with.

  10. Heidi says:

    Cocker Spaniel & Collie look beautiful!

    • Karen says:

      They do! I think they’d be really pretty on the lid with a super thin line of black liquid liner on the upper lash line. Pop on two layers of mascara and oh-la-la!

  11. AnieJ says:

    I think Collie would be the best bet for me, but I want a color-color, not just a base. Any suggestions from this line?

  12. Kelly says:

    Those are all super pretty, but I especially like Husky (coincidentally it’s also my favorite dog!) πŸ™‚

  13. Cassy says:

    Collie is like whoa there! with the sparkle, I like it. My mystery mutts are part Cocker Spaniel, though, so I do have a special place in my heart for that one.

  14. Nina says:

    im liking the baby blue and the baby pink — so spring!

  15. Carrie says:

    Husky is really pretty (just like the dogs). The others look easy to dupe.

  16. heidi says:

    I want collie so bad! That’s beautiful. Husky’s pretty too but I have blue eyes and I think collie would make them pop. How quickly do they dry? Is it slow enough to blend?
    Also I would totally buy a cat line. My simese, russian blue, calico, mix Sugar agrees with Tabs. They could stick with breeds, tabby could be a deep brown, persian stark white, simese a pale highlight… it would be brilliant. Or they could name them things like kitty nip, purr, or whiskers… there’s a whole market of crazy cat ladies who would adore it.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Heidi,

      I need to spend some more time playing with these but from the swatches I’ve noticed that you do get some leeway in the drying time.

      BTW, what a cute name for a kitty! I had a neighbor who had a cat named Sugar and she was so playful and outgoing.

  17. Cassy says:

    Oh no! I think I messed up because my comment disappeared. They’ve been doing that lately :/ I am partial to Cocker Spaniel, though, because my mystery mutts are part cocker (the rest mystery, lol)

  18. Nena says:

    I love the idea for Mystery Mutt! I’d wear it.

  19. Dharti says:

    I like cocker spaniel. I like Collie too but I have a similar shade. It’s copper I think – by VS. Have you tried their loose powder eye shadows? They are really good – easy to blend, very pigmented, and stay for about 6 hrs on me without any primer or attempt at not touching my eyes πŸ˜€ And they are only $7 ish.

    I have a question about these though – I love husky but I don’t like all over blue lids. Do you think these would work well with a brush as eyeliners?

    collie is soooo pretty!

  21. Amanda says:

    I like cocker spaniel best in the pot, and collie best of the swatches. i have one of the orignal 10 (pug? i think-it’s a silvery taupe) and like it well enough to get another if there is a color I LOVE. But I am starting to feel a little….saturated by my stuff. gasp! I know, I know.

  22. gio says:

    husky is beautiful! But I’m not a fan of cream eyeshadows, they always crease horribly on me!

    I guess I will be doing a Sephora order!! I have to get my paws on Husky!!! It totally matches my huskies eyes!! This is a must have for me!! Thanks for the info Karen!!

  24. Christy says:

    I would get Collie…only because I have one πŸ˜‰ She’s a Sheltie specifically named Liberty πŸ™‚

  25. kana says:

    They’re all beautiful colors! I am loving the doggie names, but i do agree we need more cats or maybe just different types of animals! (i’m a suckerfor animals,hehe)

  26. I like Collie!

    Husky and Sheepdog = <3

  28. Kate & Zena says:

    Buxom needs to make Rat Terrier and Decker Terrier shades! Zena isn’t represented! I need to wear Zena!

    (But, don’t tell Zena, I secretly love the Sheepdog and Collie ones).

    Pretty– reminds me of a beach vacation.

  30. Suji says:

    I’m intrigued by the texture of these – will have to swatch these when I find them. Lately when I don’t have much time to do my makeup I’ll just dab on some cream shadow on my lids then follow with eyeliner & mascara. I may look into these!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Suji,

      They feel really neat — almost like a marshmallow.

      BTW, have you checked out NARS Spring yet? They have a really great shadow pencil called Hollywoodland that’s great for mornings when you need to rush.

  31. bisbee says:

    I have 3 of the original colors – Black Lab (for a smokey eye), Mutt (bronze-taupe) and Pug (pewter). Mutt and Pug are my go-to shadows – and they actually last all day on me – even without a primer (but I normally do use a primer). I thought the amount was ridiculously tiny…but they last forever! They are shimmery, but not over-the-top – although I’d love it they would come out with some other finishes – not necessarily matte, but a satin would be nice.

    The texture is wonderful, and I highly recommend buying the “special” brush – it’s absolutely perfect for applying these, although most likely any cream shadow brush would work, but this one is shaped perfectly, and is a little more “plush” than my other cream shadow brushes, which seems to work well with the spongy texture!

  32. C says:

    I have Mutt and I love it! It’s the only eye shadow I’ve found that stays on my oily lids (and yes, I use a primer but this is the only shadow that works).

  33. Soo says:

    Husky and Cocker Spaniel are gorgeous
