Living large with Buxom Full-On Lip Polish

Buxom Full-On Lip GlossBuxom Cosmetics believes bigger is always better…they are all about vivid colors, plumped lips, and bold looks. This Sephora-exclusive line has an amazing array of shades (100 colors of lip gloss? Sign us up!) so everyone should be able to find their perfect match, even introverts who aren’t particularly into living out loud. Buxom Cosmetics sent us three shades of their Full-On Lip Polish to review and we couldn’t wait to see how it transformed our lips.

Full-On Lip Polish ($19) is a sheer tinted gloss that is also a lip plumper. The packaging is retro-cool and every shade is named for a gorgeous gal.  Ingredients include Vitamins A and E for a softer pucker, but how wearable is this lip gloss?

Lisa’s Side:  I tested two shades, Jennifer and Trixie. Jennifer is a “flirty fuchsia”. I love the sparkling berry shade – it has an iridescence that is really beautiful. While I’m not sure if it actually makes my lips much bigger, I do love the longevity of this gloss.

Trixie is a “24 karat pink” that is a bit more on the sheer side. I find there is quite a bit of peach in this pink and it has the same beautiful iridescent quality as Jennifer. By itself, it’s a pretty wash of color that perks up my lips; it is also gorgeous over warm-toned lipstick.

They both make my lips tingle in a pleasant way that is almost addictive.  I love my shades and am definitely a fan of the formula…I want to try Lisa just because it would be a lot of fun to have a lip gloss with my own name on it. Be sure to search for your name and check out the graphic girl to see if she looks like you!

Marcia’s Side:

What a beautiful trio of women we have right here. I chose Dani as the Lip Polish I want to wear. Dani is described as a berry pink. It’s the shade I’m drawn to over and over. I love that it’s so sheer and that I can apply it without looking when I realize I have no lip color on. Being a sheer lip color you aren’t going to get the depth you see in the tube. Buxom suggests pairing it up with a Full On Lipstick to get a fuller, more long lasting look.

These Lip Polishes are meant to be plumping but they aren’t the type of plump that has you in pain. It’s a subtle effect. I notice the fragrance of it (sweet with a touch of chocolate to my nose) more than I notice the plump factor. But what I really notice is the incredible shine that this has.

There are several finishes in these Buxom Lip Polishes – satin and diamond shades. Dani, like her pals Jennifer and Trixie, is satin but there’s a teeny tiny amount of shimmer to it too that makes lips glow even more. These tubes are substantial so you are getting a good amount of gloss for the money.

Have you tried any of these beauties yet?

    I thought I wanted to get the Allison gloss, but the shade didn’t interest me, unfortunately. So disappointed! When I wear a gloss, I like the fully pigmented ones.

  4. BeautyJudy | 10th Aug 15

    I am in love with Buxom glosses, I believe they used to just be part of the BareMinerals line, no? If they still make it, April is my go-to soft pink gloss!

  5. Destany | 10th Aug 15

    I had an IRL friend suggest these glosses to me the other day. She swears by them.

  19. Nidia - Lit From Within | 11th Aug 15

    I’m not drawn to gloss as much as I am to lipsticks, but I have to admit that the shimmer is so nice! I love the dimension it adds to the lips.

  20. Phyrra | 11th Aug 15

    Those are so pretty! I don’t really wear gloss but I can see the appeal.

  21. beautyin | 11th Aug 15

    Nidia and Phyrra, Lisa is the one that loves glosses while Marcia prefers lipstick. But it’s great to have a gloss to give some extra shine.

  22. Honeygirlk | 11th Aug 15

    I love Buxom glosses though I’m a total lipstick girl. I always enjoy them.

  23. Miranda Mendoza | 11th Aug 15

    Since I’m not a gloss girl, I’d at least want a leeetle more pigmentation!

  24. beautyin | 11th Aug 15

    Miranda, these are definitely light pigment but high on shine.

  25. Bailey | 12th Aug 15

    The shades are so pretty! I haven’t tried them myself, but I know a lot of ladies love the formula.

  26. Elizabeth B | 12th Aug 15

    I absolutely love Buxom lip polish! Trixie looks fabulous…..I already have too many, but may be tempted to pick this one up!
