Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in White Russian Review

I’m on a roll today because I have so many great samples in my stash to share. The Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in White Russian came in the Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip Set and it’s a beautiful nude pink color.

What’s to love?

First up I like Buxom tube because it’s wide on the bottom and does not fall over when you stand it up, I also like the hard opaque plastic because it looks classy and it’s sturdy.

The Buxom Cream formula is is different from the Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in that there’s no shimmer, glitter or metallic finish. Instead you get a beautiful creamy high shine finish which comes in 12 shades. It’s also got a good tingle (but not too much) and it smells like sugar or cookies. It also has “encapsulated hyaluronic spheres” to plump your lips and I have to agree that my lips looked nice and plumpy! I actually prefer the Cream formula to the Lip Polish.

As you can see from the photo above it really did make my lips look soft, shiny and plump with a hint of pink. I am really digging this formula! It’s not sticky or goopy either, my lips just feel soft and moisturized. I really love this product!

Just a fun fact too. Buxom is owned by Bare Escentuals which is BareMinerals.

The Buxom Full on Lip Cream is on sale for $10 on March 22nd, 2017 as part of the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty!

Buxom Full-On Lip Polish Review

First a fun fact! In 2010 Shiseido acquired Bare Escentuals who also owns bareMinerals, RareMinerals, Buxom and md formulations brands. I find it interesting who owns what brands.

I got this cute sample of the Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Dolly from Ulta and I’m really glad I got to test it out first.

What’s to love?

I love getting free samples and Ulta is great at sending e-mail offers, you just have to make sure you’re one of the first people there.

The Buxom Full-On Lip Polish is a nice product that gives great shine and comes in 100 different shades. Their marking is cute with a cartoon “babe” for each color.

Dolly is a dark pink gloss that goes on really easily but it was a bit sticky on my lips. The color is beautiful…shiny with specks of gold shimmer in it.

The one issue I have is that it’s a bit too tingly which is funny because I usually love menthol lip gloss. The tingle just keeps going and going and going. Not sure I love that prolonged sensation. I did however appear to plump my lips up a little which was nice.

I think this is a great product for people who love that tingling sensation but I’m not sure I love it enough to buy the full-sized product which is $20.

I’m going to try a little over a cream or matte lipstick too, which might jazz up a duller colorer with some shine.
