Buxom Full On Lip Polish | Review

One of the last minute buys that I knew I would regret not buying in America was the Buxom Full On Lip Polish. After hearing about it from Shaaanxo on Youtube & knowing that Sylvia from MakeupAsExpression loves them too,I had to test it out.
 I found it hard to pick out which colour I wanted! They all seemed fairly sheer but there were so many similar colours, in the end I had to keep re-swatching before I settled on Katie.

 The Buxom Full on Lip Pouts are in a long, hard plastic tube with a silver lid & writing on the side, which has started to fade after continuous use which is annoying, but happens to most products for me.

The gloss has a thicker, slightly sticky texture, but nothing to drive me crazy. The unique thing about this product is the refreshing menthol feeling that doesn't sting compared to other plumping lip glosses that lasts for as long as you wear it, although it does fade. It also has a sweet-minty scent that goes with the cooling sensation.
It's hard for me to tell if this is actually plumping my lips, but the gorgeous shimmer helps my lips to appear fuller anyway, not that it is one of my concerns.

The coverage is sheer but leaves behind a hint of colour & glitter and it is very long lasting. Katie is a light pinky peach colour & looks lovely over nude, light pink or peach lipsticks, or on it's own for a natural look.

 Please excuse my dry/chapped lips! Here is a before & after wearing the lipgloss on it's own. You can see that it's also fairly moisturizing as you cannot see much of the chapping & my lips feel smoother.

And here is wearing a matte nude lipstick (Revlon Nude Attitude) & then the gloss. It is still present after 4 hours later and I can still feel the menthol sensation however it isn't as strong.

Overall, although I prefer lipstick to lip glosses, I absolutely love the formula, longevity & feeling of the Buxom Full On Lip Polish and would love to buy more.

Have you tried these before?

  1. I'm the same as you - definitely prefer lipsticks to lip glosses, but this Buxom one does match Nude Attitude so well :) I'm a fan of anything menthol so that's a plus for me!

  2. OOO...it looks so good with that lippie! The only revlon lip stick I have was a nude from the colorburst line but its toooo nude for my skintone, I look dead, lifeless! But that nude looks amazing by itself and the gloss is very complementary! Don't worry about the chapped lips, mine honestly look like that at least 3 times a week!

  6. I prefer lipsticks over lipglosses too, but that lipgloss really looks amazing! And even better because it has a menthol feel, I always look for lipglosses like that. Thanks for the review hun! :)

    Take care always, love Christine ~ xo
