I am in love - in love, I tell you! - with the new Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Stick from Bare Escentuals. This lip crayon works tirelessly to create a perfectly defined pout with color that will last you well into the night. One product accomplishes three tasks: it lines the lips, fills them in with rich color, and plumps. Convenience for sure! The Lip Stick comes in six vibrant shades, each replete with the antioxidant Vitamins A, C, and E, to keep lips feeling moisturized and smooth throughout the day. They really are creamy and even with the darker colors there is no bleeding! Upon application, the lips will feel the slight tingling sensation characteristic of the Buxom lip glosses, and the scent/taste is also along the lines of the glosses. Built-in sharpeners are also included to so that there will never be a dull moment when you're on the go!
Barcelona - scarlet apple
Berlin - creamy pecan
Brooklyn - harvest fig
Las Vegas - vibrant pink
Milan - sun-kissed apricot
Monte Carlo - magenta
I own three of the six colors, and believe me when I tell you they wear beautifully! I decided on Barcelona last weekend to complement a classic and simple black and beige dress I wore. It popped the entire look, creating that perfect pin-up pout, and I received more compliments than I ever have before. The best part? After applying the product to my lips at around 9 o'clock in the morning, I never once had to reapply (and I didn't get home until about midnight that evening)! Amazing, right?? Well, the proof is in the photos, my friends (the pictures span the course of my day)!
