Hey everyone! Just wanted to share an awesome kit I got for my birthday. I LOVE Buxom glosses and the Big & Healthy Lip Sticks. I actually got a kit similar to this one last year- just a different configuration of colors. This year's Mix & Mingle kit is still available at Sephora.com for $36, and in my opinion, it's well worth it!
Something you should know about these Buxom lip products- both the glosses and the pencils are what I would consider to be "lip plumpers". They both offer a cool, tingly sensation. I know they make my lips feel smooth, plump, pigmented, and glossy... and they wear a long time- but there were a few things I just found out after giving the website another look...
An independent clinical study was conducted, and it found 86% of women experienced an immediate increase in lip fullness with the glosses, and 90% of women felt the Big & Healthy Lip Sticks lasted on their lips. -Sephora.comAnd in case you're wondering about the ingredients in these that are giving your lips that plumped effect, I also found that these lip products contain no parabens, sulfates, phthalates, GMOs, or triclosan. They are infused with vitamins A & E. Just thought that was an interesting tidbit!
Lip Sticks (left to right): Tokyo, Sydney, Miami, Monaco
My favorite glosses are April (light shimmery pink), and Starr (sheer plum with gold sparkle). As you can see, all of the lip sticks are super pigmented, and I love them all. I find Monaco (dusty rose) to be super wearable, and Sydney (nude) is awesome for getting a good base for a nude lip. I'm also just a huge fan of jumbo lip pencils for the precision they give, without being as fine-tipped as a lip pencil- so these really excited me. Also for the fact that they don't fade outside the lip line, they have a minty tingle, and you can create a variety of color combos with the glosses. I know this lip set probably won't be around forever, so I just wanted to give my fellow lip product junkies a heads up! :)
- Kind of bummed that I'll have to be in bed tonight before the college football National Championship comes on.

- This is obviously not an official review, but I am really enjoying my Clarisonic Mia 2 so far :)
