Hey guys! Happy Sunday! Hope it’s been a awesome weekend so far for all of you. This week we are entering lip territory once again…a dangerous field I must say. In this review, we will be discussing the Buxom Lip Trio! Brace yourselves!
This little Buxom set comes with 3 mini products for your perfect nude lip look – a mini Plumpline Lipliner in the colour Hush Hush, mini Big & Sexy Bold Gel Lipstick in Naturally Daring, and a mini Full-On Lip Cream in Hot Toddy. All of the shades are within the nude family, each with it’s own undertones (peach, pink, etc) which makes the set cohesive yet unique. This set retails for $25 CAD which you can find at Sephora.
Full-on Lip Cream in Hot Toddy
This lip gloss has changed our lives for the better. Not only does it provide high shine without any stickyness but it also feels super minty and cooling on our lips. This lip gloss packs a punch in terms of our “burn our lips off” scale (don’t be scared it’s not harmful for you lips). Unlike a regular lip gloss this lip cream is slightly more opaque which means the colour is definitely more noticeable. Hot toddy is pinky-brown nude shade that we think would look good on any skin tone. On the Sephora website they describe it as a “toasty nude”. This lipgloss has sweet vanilla scent that isn’t overpowering for us, and once it’s applied we couldn’t really detect anything. Buxom did a great job assembling this trio; in this set we tend to wear the lip liner with the lip cream and the combination is stunning. You can pair it with almost any eye look, whether it be a smokey or subtle. Out of the three lip products in this set, the one we would most likely repurchase is the lip cream. It’s pretty hard to find anything we don’t like about this product. Our only suggestion would be to have more colours (might not be a good idea for our wallets…:P ).
Plumpline Lipliner in Hush Hush
Let us also start off by saying this is the best nude lip liner we have come across. Hush Hush is described as a cinnamon colour, with pink-brown, neutral undertones. It’s unscented and has a relatively creamy formula, which ensures that the liner doesn’t tug on your lips too much, but not too creamy that the liner will wear off quickly. The line as a whole also offers a great range of colours, from nudes to reds to plums. While the liner doesn’t do anything to “plump” our lips as it may advertise, it’s still a good liner. It is a little drying though so it’s best not to wear it every day but it’s definitely nowhere near as bad as a matte liquid lipstick. Our favourite part of this product is probably the wearability of the unique nude colour although we would still recommend the line as a whole.
Note: the full size lip liner comes with a brush applicator on one end of the liner but this mini size does not.
Big & Sexy Bold Gel Lipstick in Naturally Daring
Out of the trio, the lipstick is probably the one we’ve both worn the least amount but it’s still a decent lipstick. The shade is a pink-y nude with a creamy matte finish. It does transfer, so if that’s a priority for you then this is not the one, but it also means that it’s a more comfortable matte formula to wear. Overall, it’s not bad, it’s a good cream lipstick but it’s nothing really special.
Overall we would consider this a good buy and it’s a great way to try a few products from the Buxom line. The shades are great staples for everyday looks or days you want to feel more glam. Two big thumbs up from both of us!
