Buxom Mix & Mingle!

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.com
And 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!

Glosses (left to right): Sasha, April, Naomi, Starr
Lip Sticks (left to right): Tokyo, Sydney, Miami, Monaco

(swatches are in the same order as products are shown above)

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! :)

  • The guys who do College GameDay on ESPN are always in perfect suits.
  • This is obviously not an official review, but I am really enjoying my Clarisonic Mia 2 so far :)

  7. I do not like the Buxom glosses...they smell, taste & feel "off" for me. I did just rediscover the Prestige lipgloss plumpers that I bought years ago. They seem have better pigment, plumping action and staying power!? :)

  8. I bought a kit from Sephora which contained a "Buxom," gloss. Leslie was the color... It took some getting used to, but I have to say I LOVE IT NOW!

    Thanks for sharing!

  18. Hi Emily, love your videos.
    I will be getting married in May and will do my makeup (will also be doing the makeup of my maid of honor for her wedding in July).
    Could you please please please do a bride series?

    I know you got married not so long ago and you did videos about it, but products have changed since then and I thought it would be great to see what you would recommend with different looks for different personality brides.

    Thank you, take care
    P
