Buxom Amanda, Gabby, and Zoe Lipglosses

the Buxom lip glosses are described as

A high-shine plumping gloss tingles to coax a gorgeous lip look while pampering and moisturizing with vitamins A and E. Lips stay lusciously soft, plumped, and seriously sexy.

Here are  Amanda , Gabby , and Zoe $20 ec at 0.15 oz/ 4.44 mL. Buxom has been around for several years and hardly reviewed. I’ve been using their glosses for 3yrs.

Amanda is a clear gloss loaded up with shimmer

 

Gabby was the original gloss I owned. At one time, Buxom was under the same roof as Bare Minerals. I think the brand separate, reformulated their glosses, and changed their logo. Since there is not much said about Buxom, I’m only guessing they are a separate company. The new Gabby is completely different in color.  Compared to the original, I noticed the new Gabby looks fuller in coverage and has better pigmentation. It doesn’t matter. Gabby has been perfect on top of all my browns and rosey shades. This is my second time repurchasing.

 Extra details of Gabby. Either way, Gabby is still a pretty shade.

 

Zoe is very wearable and gives off a fair amount of pigment on its own.

Buxom is one of my ‘underrated’ high end brands. I know lip gloss is lip gloss, but I feel the Buxom line is very unique and actually worth the purchase.  Their glosses are good quality, nonsticky, and easy to wear.

My Description

They surprisingly live up to their description. Cream products are not for everyone. I hated using creams because of creasing, cracking, and fading. As I was playing with them, they stayed in place for up to 12hrs with very minimal creasing. I love how they can be worn alone or with a complete eye look. Alone, they seriously pop. During application, I had to apply a little at a time to build intensity. I accidently applied too much, and the shadow started bunching up. To avoid buildup, a small amount is needed. Even though it is in a tube, the tube pushes out just enough product without being excessive.

The white tubes are easy to clean off excess makeup.

The tube is designed so well. It pinches out the right amount. For product sanitation, I like that I don’t need to stick my finger in a tube.

I was impressed at the size of the tubes for $24. Pigments are a product I won’t have to worry about getting backups.

 The pigments will work for people who are seeking to start out with cream products and won’t mind the price.
