Kimberley Santos, Pop Couture
I love a good lip gloss that promises to be buxom; I mean, really who doesn\’t want to emphasise lipstick or lipgloss which in turn should scream â€˜I\’m totally kissable\’.
I don\’t often look for plumping lipglosses just because I already have a full mouth (we\’re not talking Angelina though) and so I feel as if with a particular shade, or if I was brave enough to wear red lipstick; you would see full, pouty lips regardless.
Bare Escentuals Buxom Lip Polish has a few special ingredients to do what it does; peptides for the lip-plumping action, vitamins A & E and after inhaling it a few times to figure it out, the scent is delicious. Its caramel. (Toffee, maybe?) Just delicious.
It glides on smoothly, with an almost sticky sensation and has that famous cooling/tingling feeling which comes with any lip product that says it plumps. It\’s a very personal thing; you either love it, or hate it, and want to wipe it off. I think it is much milder than the tingliness felt when applying the DuWop Lip Venom .
Sidenote; the little tiny vial of the Lip Venom is a toddler compared to the luxurious tube offered here.
After trying it for a few days; on its own or over a semi-matte lipstick to really test its shine, I can say I\’m quite impressed. The lasting power was magnificent! It maintains its coverage, and doesn\’t fade for quite a bit. Even after it loses its shine a tad, it still leaves a sheen to the lips and you can feel as it you touch your lips together. The only note I\’d say is to ensure your lips are smooth, and free of dryness as a lip product of this kind will only make your chapped lips feel worse. Definitely one to try; I\’m already scoping the other colours in the range!
It is available in the following shades (RRP$60):
