Review: Bare Escentuals Buxom Lips

I know we were talking about Lip Glosses before, and figured I'd drop a line to let you guys know that this is the lip gloss I bought:

Bare Escentuals - Buxom Lips in Candi - $18

I have to say...I actually don't really like it. I think it's just not the best fit for me, but I'm sure other people love it...it's obviously a big seller. When I got it, I forgot it was one of those "lip plumping" lip glosses that are supposed to make your lips more full. I'm pretty far from having Angelina Jolie lips, but I think mine are pretty full already. I'm not sure I'd actually want my lips much bigger and really, the tingling feeling of the lip gloss is rather annoying. The color is pretty nice - just a tad bit of color over your natural lip color. Anywho, if you don't want your lips to tingle the whole time the gloss is on your lips, then this is not for you. If you're a BE girl, there are non-plumping BE options. If you're interested in getting something to plump up your lips, then give it a whirl - this may be the product for you - I hear it's not as intense as other options, but good if you want a more natural option. Either way, if you're curious now, I'd just drop by Sephora (or wherever else they sell BE) and get a sample to try it out in person.

If you've tried a lip plumping lip gloss, what do you think?

i have to say I LOVE the BE Buxon lip glosses. I have them in 4 shades. Of course one of the things I like about it is the tingle, I know it's working. I dont expect it to plump my lips like Angelina's..if it did, it would put plastic surgeons out of business. But the natural properties inside make a natural plumping..just to give you enough of a 'pouty' look.

I've used a Sally Hansen lip plumper before, it worked...alright. Nothing miraculous though.
Thanks for the review on the Bare Escentuals stuff.

I've actually bought the Buxom lipgloss before and it was pretty good, but I like Lip Venom better. The Buxom comes in clear, too (my friend has it and it looks really good on her). Anyways, I think they are pretty much a waste of money. I like Victoria's Secret lipgloss better it's only about $7.

I just can't get into lip plumpers, although my friend also swears by the Lip Venom.

OMG...I LOVE Buxom lips...I have like 8 of them. I buy almost every kit that has a buxom in it...the full size of course because I can't live without it...I even put it on right before I go to sleep...my husband really doesn't like the taste of them but I love them so he HAS to put up with it...haha...but other than that it's AMAZING! I recomend everyone to go buy at least one and just give it a try, it's all natural and non-tacky which is a must when it comes to glosses!
