Worth the Hype: Buxom Lip Creams!


Hey Everyone!
Recently I have been obsessing over the Buxom Lip Creams which you can find at Sephora for $19. It might seem quite pricey for a lip-gloss especially since there are so many great drugstore lip products nowadays but this one is definitely worth the splurge! I currently own 2 but I am itching for a 3rd (however I am going to try to restrain myself for as long as possible because I really need to save my $.)

I first heard about the Buxom Lip Creams from Michele1218 (love her!) She raved about the lipgloss specifically in the color White Russian (a beautiful nude shade) and almost always loving her recommendations i knew I had to try it out! After a little bit of research, I discovered that "White Russian" has received a lot of hype and was hard to get a hold of because it supposedly was always sold out. I luckily managed to find one in my Sephora and it was love at first try! 


These lipglosses don't have any shimmer which I personally prefer (and as you can probably tell by the name of the product being lip cream.) However they make up for the lack of shimmer in the beautiful high gloss shine they provide the lips! Absolutely gorgeous in my opinion! The consistency is amazing, ultra smooth and not sticky. The staying power is quite good considering it's a gloss and they feel very luxurious. A possible con that I would say about the lipgloss is that it is supposed to be plumping and thus leaves your lips with the cooling/minty feel, which personally does not bother me but I know that not everyone is a fan of the "plumping" feature. 

The other day I was exploring Sephora as I find myself doing every so often and unintentionally I found myself next to the Buxom lipglosses. I couldn't resist the temptation to play around with the other colors in the range which unfortunately is limited to only 7. I first tried the shade "creamsicle" a very pretty peach sorbet color, but than I was intrigued by the red "cherry flip" because it looked as if it would be a softer red (if you know what I mean) I tried it on and I adored the way it looked! If you are not comfortable wearing red lipstick but love the idea of red lips than this product is for you! It tints your lips to a beautiful natural looking red, the shine is incredible, and after the initial gloss wears off you are left with a extremely subtle red tint! It was perfection and I could not leave the store without purchasing it! 

I highly recommend you try these lipglosses out the next time your in Sephora! The Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Creams have become one of my holy grail lip products and I am very excited to get a few more colors in the future. 

Have you tried these glosses? What did you think of them? What color is your favorite?

Thank you so much for reading, following, and commenting!
