Buxom Leave Your Mark Collection

Hi everyone!
The blog is back! This time, with a review on a huge holiday lip collection. There are so many products to show... I thought it'd be easiest to compare all the shades in a blog post as opposed to a video. The Leave Your Mark Collection from Buxom is $59 at Sephora. Getting a set of Buxom glosses has practically become a holiday tradition for me. It's kind of like when you find a shirt that fits great... so you want to get it in every color. I absolutely love this lip gloss formula, so I'm always open to trying new shades! 
(The 15 glosses are packaged in a plastic tray)

This kit particularly interested me because it's a set of both the Buxom Full-On Lip Polishes and Full-On Lip Cremes... 15 products total (in mini .07 oz sizes). Also, the set is made up of best-selling shades- which I prefer over limited edition colors. That way if you happen to fall in love with one particular shade, you can purchase the full-size. And in case you're not familiar, these glosses are basically like tingly lip plumpers. They don't sting... but they do have a cooling tingle on the lips, which I really like. They are thick glosses with a lot of shine, so the texture alone makes lips appear fuller and smoother. They are slightly sticky, but I don't find them at all annoying or uncomfortable... and I've always thought that a gloss needs at least a little tackiness to help it adhere to the lips and last for a prolonged period of time. Even with periodic eating and drinking- I can get several hours of wear out of these glosses! Another aspect that I majorly love about these is that even though some shades are more sheer than others, they are NEVER streaky in their application. They always hang together and give an even look across the lips. 
The Cremes
Left to right: White Russian, Hot Toddy, Dolly, Pink Lady, Berry Blast, Cherry Flip, Purple Haze.
While the standard Lip Polish formula has more of a gel-type consistency, these are- as you would expect- more creamy. They don't contain any shimmer, and some shades are more opaque than others.  They have the same overall feel on the lips as the Lip Polishes and just as much shine. I had only tried a couple of shades from this line in the past (White Russian & Berry Blast), and I loved them- so I am so excited to have more! 

White Russian 
This is a super popular nude gloss and while it's not fully opaque, it still has quite a bit of coverage on the lips for a gloss. I tend to like my nude lip colors to have some shine- as I think it brings a bit more life to the face and makes them more wearable. 

Hot Toddy
This sheer beige is much more see-through than I was expecting. I feel like I'm seeing my natural lip color with a clear gloss on top in this picture. Not terrible, but I was hoping for a bit more color payoff. 

Dolly 
This one reminds me of a slightly deeper, more pink take on Hot Toddy. Where Hot Toddy was "my lips" - this is more like "my lips but better" :) Loads of shine, but still very natural-looking. 

Pink Lady
I was so surprised with how much this soft pink showed up on my lips! Judging by the other colors, I was expecting this to be even more faint- but I love the amount of pink it gives off. There aren't a lot of baby pink shades that I find to be really wearable for everyday, but this is one of them! :) 

Berry Blast
Isn't this color absolutely juicy? I've had this one before and I love it. One of the most opaque, full-color glosses of the entire set. It really brings life to the face!

Cherry Flip
This is Berry Blast's red partner in crime and a perfect holiday lip color! I don't often feel comfortable wearing super shiny reds because I fear that they'll become sloppy and run outside the lips. That's not a concern with the Buxom formula, though, because they have enough tackiness to stay in place. 

Purple Haze
Fully prepared to turn my lips straight up purple (as this gloss appears in the tube), I was slightly disappointed. This definitely sheers out to a sheer berry on the lips. It still isn't streaky and I love the color... I was just expecting more purple. 

The Polishes
Left to right: Sandy, Bunny, Sophia, Olivia, Taylor, Jennifer, Zoe, Starr.
As I mentioned earlier, if you were to get an up-close look at the Full-On Lip Polish formula, you'd notice that it appears to have a gel-like consistency. These colors have varying amounts of shimmer in them, ranging from barely detectable to very sparkly. But even the most sparkly shades don't have any rough texture on the lips whatsoever, which is great. The sparkle is so fine that in some cases you can't see it on my lips unless you get up really close- but it still has an effect... these glosses catch the light even more, making them slightly more shiny than the Lip Cremes. 

Sandy
I actually LOVE this shade. It might even edge out White Russian for my favorite nude of the bunch. I love how just enough of my natural lip color shows through... but the gloss still has some soft beige color of its own. Not everyone's perfect nude is actually an erase-your-lips nude color. I love the way this one looks! 

Bunny
This looks VERY similar to Sandy on the lips... but very different in the tube. I was expecting a light peach, but couldn't pick up on much of that coming through on my lips. Like I said, I like Sandy- but I'd love each shade to be it's own special color, you know? 

Sophia
This shade seems a lot like Dolly, shown above, but with a bit more pinky-mauve. An incredibly natural pink for those who rarely wear color on the lips but just want a little something. 

Olivia
This is a deeper, slightly brighter pink with a LOT of sparkle (though you can't feel it at all on the lips). It's beautiful! But a very similar overall look to many of the berry glosses I already own.

Taylor
This orangey-red was a refreshing twist in a very pinky-berry lip collection! I love it! It's a little less intense than Cherry Flip, and I think it's nice to have that option. Gorgeous color!

Jennifer
This is a pretty pink with a hint of purple tone. The sparkle in this is extra fine, and maybe I'm crazy, but I think it seems extra shiny on my lips. I was hoping it would be a bit more opaque and come off a little closer to the color in the tube.

Zoe
This shade makes for a rather unique addition to my lip gloss stash. I'd describe it as a sheer brick red with a very multi-dimensional shimmer. It's just a fun gloss to look at in the tube, and fun to wear as well. 

Starr
This is a sheer plum with gold sparkle. It wasn't as dark as I hoped it would be. A pretty color nonetheless, and it will probably look awesome paired with some of my deeper lip liners or lipsticks. 

My Favorites: Pink Lady, Berry Blast, Cherry Flip, Sandy, Taylor & Zoe

Bottom Line: 
The Leave Your Mark collection is a really fun set for lip gloss lovers, particularly fans of the Buxom Lip Cremes and Lip Polishes. Small sizes are great for those of us lip product addicts who rarely burn through a full-size anyway. For me, every single shade in here is wearable and every shade is pretty. There are just some that I like more than others. If you're not a fan of lip glosses in general or dislike any sort of tingle or cooling sensation on your lips- you might want to side-step this kit altogether. I could see this being a fun set to split up several ways with friends or family... everyone could get a few to try! I think fans of sheer pink and berry tones have the most to enjoy in this set... as there's not much to speak of in terms of dark neutrals, corals, or super rich & vampy tones. I hope this post was helpful to those of you considering this kit! If you've tried it yourself, let me know you thoughts in the comments section!
