BUXOM -- Babes About Town (Swatch/Review)

Shopping at Sephora is exciting...Shopping with free money is well more that exciting!!!
There is nothing called as 'Patience' when it comes to spending free money....I spent my $20 gift card at Sephora on Saturday. It was so crowded!!! Many people had those printouts.....the VIB gift printouts.


BUXOM -- Babes About Town

I chose this! I had never tried any of the Bare Escentual lip products. This was a good deal...
Four Lip color and Four Lip gloss for $39!! With my coupon I got it pretty cheap.


Buxom Lipgloss in Zena, Dani, Isabella, Destiny

A worldly collection of Buxom Big & Healthy Lip
Sticks and Lip Polishes, which are infused with antioxidant vitamins E and A to

When we say Buxom Babes get around, it's with the utmost respect. This worldly collection of Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Sticks and Lip Polishes—which are infused with antioxidant vitamins E and A to keep lips soft, smooth, and protected—are perfect for long nights painting the town.
Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Sticks work triple duty to define lips like a liner,
fill them with velvety color, and plump them to their full Buxom potential.
Beautiful alone or layered over a lip stick, Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Polishes give you fuller, more voluptuous lips with sheer, shimmering color and a tingly sensation for added oomph.

Lipgloss/Lip Polish in Zena

After all the good things described by the websites, here are my thoughts on the kit.
To begin with, I like the Lip color/lipstick/Lip Liner more than the Lip Gloss.
Lip colors are very creamy, smooth and not at all drying. They are decently long lasting and not a all shimmery. The finish is decently semi- opaque and the feel is very moisturising. The colors are all wearable and it smells like sugar cookies....


Lipgloss/Lip Polish in Isabella

As far as the Lip gloss goes, they all are very sheer. They give a lovely sheen to the lips and the over all finish is very polished. The lipsticks and Lipgloss correspond well with each other. The lips did feel a bit plump and full, but there was burning sensation at all. It did tingle a bit, but that didn't last long.


Lipgloss/Lip Polish in Destiny

This kit has a lovely color selection and every color is wearable.


Lipgloss/Lip Polish in Dani


Swatches of Buxom Lipstick and Lipgloss

Berlin is supposed to work with Isabella and Milan is to be worn with Destiny. Similarly Shanghai and Dani look good together, so does Amsterdam and Zena.

Its not written anywhere, but thats how it came in the box.
Over all a decent size product at a good price. I say decent size, because when I saw the Laura Mercier lipgloss set at $28, I almost died, because they are smaller than some of those free samples!!!

    Shangai and Dani together might not give the intensity like it might wash out the pigmentation of Shangai! Wat say? anyway, was my personal opinion:)
