Today I’m sharing a few of the products I used the most last month. It’s a small collection for February since a lot of the same products I use daily were previously listed in my January 2014 Favorites. Let’s take a closer look.
I’m a huge fan of Buxom Big and Healthy Lip Cream lip gloss ($19) so when new shades come out, I’m all over it. Recently they released three new shades into the collection. In keeping with their theme, all three new colors are named after drinks; Mai Tai, Kir Royale and Lavender Cosmo. I’m a sucker for anything coral so I picked up Mai Tai.
In the tube, Mai Tai looks very similar to Creamsicle but a touch darker. However, out of the tube Creamsicle is a milky pinky peach shade while Mai Tai is more of an orange coral pink. None of the Buxom lip creams contain any shimmer.
Buxom Fully Loaded Lips ($18) is a new set containing two mini lip products. I’ve been dying to try out the new Buxom Full-Bodied lipsticks so when I saw this duo, I knew I had to try it. I really didn’t want to buy a full sized lipstick for $21 in case I didn’t like it. I already know I love their lip polishes so this seemed like a safer bet.
Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Cream in Creamsicle ($18) is a bright peach shade. Creamsicle is part of a new line of lip glosses from Buxom that were released at the beginning on 2012. There are 7 colors in the collection including Mudslide which I already own.
Just like all the other Buxom lip glosses, these lip creams have a minty scent to them. They also make the lips tingle a bit when applied because they are lip plumper glosses. They don’t tingle too much to be painful but it is noticeable and causes a bit of a cooling sensation.
Creamsicle is a cream color with no shimmer or sparkle. It reminds me a lot of Stila Guava Lip Glaze but a touch darker. It gives my lips a fair amount of peachy pink color with lots of shine. The Buxom glosses do tend to be a bit sticky but that makes them last on my lips a bit longer than a traditional gloss.
I do like the color of this Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Cream but I was hoping Creamsicle would be more orange/peach. It’s a lot more pink than I had anticipated but it’s still a great color. What do you think of Buxom Creamsicle?
