A few months back I found myself wishing I could find a lip balm that was both moisturizing and lip plumping, which seemed unlikely at best. But then I discovered Buxom Power-full Plump Lip Balm. This deeply hydrating lip plumper also comes in a variety of pretty shades, making it a major 3-in-1 must have. It has become my go-to daily lip color (I have it in Dolly Fever), and I get complimented on it frequently.
This lip balm plumps lips in a subtle – and non-painful – way, helping to fill in fine lines without creating an over-the-top bee stung look. It’s very moisturizing and has surprising staying power.
The balm comes in four shades (sheer pink, mauve, nude and coral) and provides a nice wash of color as it plumps and softens. If you’re looking for a product that will provide a little extra oomph without much extra effort, I can’t recommend this one highly enough.
Sometimes, like it or not, a brand is just plain good, and despite my best efforts to resist, I end up with a new brand crush.
My latest infatuation? Buxom.
I didn’t want to like this cosmetics line. Honestly, I just don’t like the word Buxom. But eventually I received a sample of Buxom lips, a sticky, sweet-smelling lip polish that plumps lips and looks AMAZING. It’s long-lasting, and I’ve been carrying a tube of the Sugar shade ever since.
But last week, my crush morphed into obsession when I decided to try Buxom Lash. This mascara is absolutely wonderful. It’s dark and makes lashes look long and thick. I’ve been using it for a week and have had no eye irritation, even after I forgot to wash it off one night before bed. It doesn’t flake, and lasted the full 15 hours I wore it before taking it off. It has also lasted through both sweat and tears. It just might be my favorite mascara of all time.
