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…

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.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to be having donuts. 🙂
P.P.S. What are you doing this weekend? After breakfast I’m going to FINALLY get my hair did. It’s been a while… Wish me luck!
