Welcome (or welcome back) to my Best of Beauty MONTH-LONG countdown! Every day of this month, I will be doing reviews on 31 of my favorite beauty products that I tried in 2018.
Today’s product is the only full-sized lip product that I’ve ever even come close to finishing- The Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in Rose Julip.
I have never really been a gloss person, even in my adolescence when $1 lip glosses were all anyone was wearing (cue Lil’ Mama). This summer, though, I was tired of worry about my lipstick all day and decided to try something light and slightly sheer that would be comfortable and super easy to reapply throughout the day. So, I ran to the nearest Sephora on my lunch hour and decided to grab one of these.
Why do I love this?
First of all, this color is perfect for any time. I can wear this with any makeup look, or lack thereof, and this soft pink works perfectly to add a bit of color and a ton of shine to my lips. Even though this is a light pink, I still don’t need a lip liner because it is not totally opaque.
Since this is a Buxom lip product, it does have a plumping effect. However, it is very slight and just makes your lips look full in a healthy way, not in an overtly plumped up way. I am happy with the natural fullness of my lips, so, this works out perfectly for me. There is no harsh tingle when you apply this, just a slightly minty feel and taste.
This is by far, my favorite lip gloss ever. I bought it this summer and have almost finished it already. I will absolutely buy another one as soon as this is gone. I do have the same formula in other shades, but this one is really just perfect for any occasion so it gets the most use. I actually keep it in my purse or jacket pocket basically at all times. (I went to an NFL game and had this in my pocket but left my phone in the car. 🙄 It’s that good. ).
Do you guys have any Holy Grail lip products? I’d love to know in the comments below.
