Hello beauties, I recently was invited to a Buxom beauty event ( you can read about that here) and was gifted some amazing goodies to try out and I wanted to share with you what I received and give some mini reviews and swatches!
Disclaimer- Some of the products were gifted to me from a beauty event. As always reviews are honest and my own.
The first product I want to talk about is the Buxom Divine Goddess Illuminator that I got the chance to to try at the event. As soon as I tried it I knew I had to buy it and I’m so glad I did. This is a illuminating cream that can be used as a subtle liquid highlight or mixed in with a foundation for a dewy finish. I love the smooth formula and that it doesn’t have chunky glitter in it. It gives off the most gorgeous iridescent glow and I really like the appearance of my makeup with this underneath. This can also be used on the body and looks so beautiful on the shoulder bones. This costs £21 for 59ml.
Next up is two lip plumping products.
The first, a product that I was gifted for going to the event is the Buxom ‘Full On’ Lip Polish in the shade ‘Sugar’. This is a U.S best selling sheer, shimmering lip polish that plumps up the lips making them look fuller. This has a gorgeous glossy finish with small flecks of glitter. It doesn’t feel gritty though and is the perfect gloss to wear on its own or on top of a lipstick. The vitamin A and E in this keeps your lips soft and protected. This costs £15 for 4.44ml
Secondly another product that I purchased in this gorgeous coral Buxom ‘Full On’ Lip Cream in the shade ‘Mai Tai’. This has a slightly different finish to the gloss above, it is smoother and doesn’t have the glitter in it. This gives a high shine glass finish. I thought this shade would be perfect to wear with my summer looks. I also love how much these plump up my lips and love the fresh tingling sensation it gives. This cost £15 for 4.44ml
I was also lucky enough to be gifted one of the Buxom ‘Big and Sexy’ Matte Gel Lipsticks in the shade ‘Toxic Cherry’. If you are avid reader of my blog you will know how much I live for a red lip. The formula is so smooth thanks to it being a gel and I love how soft it looks on the lip. I will even go as far as to say it’s my new favourite formula and that’s a huge statement. I will definitely be picking up more shades in this lipstick. The only downside is that the shape of the baton is huge so those with smaller lips will struggle with application and will need to apply with a lip brush instead. This costs £15 for 2.6g.
Lastly I received a travel size Buxom ‘Big Tease’ Plumping Mascara. I was really excited to try this after hearing lots of great things about it from the event. It has a pair shaped wand thats really easy to use and helps you get into the lashes and fully coat them. It makes them so much longer and fuller without looking clumpy and looks amazing on the bottom lashes. I will definitely be picking up the full sized version of this when I’ve used this travel one up. It costs £18 for 13ml.
Thank you so much to Buxom for gifting me some of these goodies, overall I’m really impressed with the brand and will definitely be trying out more of their products in the future!
