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).

Listen, I still lurves me some gloss (as evidenced by the 10 tubes residing in my Kate Spade purse), and if you ever see me without it for more than a few days, please just assume that aliens have taken over my body.

But when I catch a glance of myself in the mirror wearing one of these fully opaque Full-Bodied Lipsticks, well, I still feel like a pouty-lipped gloss girl…but one who no longer shops in the Juniors section (or at least doesn’t very often) and has put away all (okay, most) of her surf t-shirts for good.

PRICE: $21 each for a 0.13-ounce tube
AVAILABILITY: Available now in 10 shades at Sephora stores and online
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: A- (my favorites are the brights and neutrals; on me the paler shades apply a tad patchy)

Speaking of aliens occupying human bodies, I went to watch The Host last weekend and didn’t totally hate it.

It only got an 11% on Rotten Tomatoes, so I wasn’t expecting much. Yes, it does slow way down in parts, and some things in it don’t make any sense at all — and yeah, it’s a little cheesy… Okay, a lot cheesy (hey, it’s a Stephenie Meyer story), but as far as sci-fi movies go, not bad.


I thought Saoirse Ronan, the actress who plays the main character, did a really great job.

I definitely liked the book more than the movie — I bawled my eyes out at the end of the book — but it’s worth the price of admission if you’re a sci-fi fan.

Okay, Tabs is giving me the sneaky side eye, so I better take him out for his walk. Be back soon.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Scoundrel is beautiful!! I need to see this one in person. I’m still trying to find that *perfect* slightly pinkish red. I’m most definitely a lipstick girl (the kind with ten lipsticks in her purse that excuses herself after dinner to go frantically search for the color she wore that night) but I am making a valiant effort to find a gloss formula I like ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. CrystalCandy says:

    Menace was made for you, it look amazing with your skintone!

    I got a sample of Two-Timer and I LOVE it!!

  4. Vanessa says:

    Exhibitionist is such a pretty color. Though, I don’t like the name. I get that the sexualized cosmetics names were edgy at some point, I just feel it’s overdone now. The MAC strength collection and things like it spoke to me better. There was a campaign that knew how to market to me! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Let says:

    Love how Exhibitionist and Two-Timer look on you ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. You look beyond ravishing in all of these, but esp. Hooligan, Rouge, and Two Timer! Making out with someone in the supply closet?! I just love your descriptions, Karen! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. My two favs are Scoundrel and Hooligan. Scoundrel looks like a red that might actually work on my pale skin. I’ve become a big fan of lipstick lately. I feel like gloss just keeps wearing away so quickly and I get tired of reapplying it.

    I’m liking hooligan and two-timer. They look similar. How would you say they’re different?

  9. Eesha says:

    Hi Karen, you look out of this world in all these pictures. Love how nicely pigmented these are. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Pretty shades.

    Oooh, these are very nice. I can see how they are giving your glosses a run for the money. Are you really putting away your surfer Ts forever? You could still run in them, right? ๐Ÿ™‚

    I was wondering if you’d like the Host. I haven’t seen it or read the book but I also saw the bad RT reviews. That said, they can be harsher in their criticism than the average viewer just looking for something entertaining.

  12. Sunny says:

    Yaaay another new line of lipsticks! Sounds very promising! Exhibitionist and Rouge are great for the season, and come winter I bet the reds are going to look sooo hot!

    Unscented, unflavored – Hallelujah! I never buy Buxom as their lip products are usually vanilla scented (and I really dislike vanilla scented cosmetic products).

    Gonna check this babies out!
