Buxom PillowPout Plumping Lip Powder Evaluate
I’m a HUGE Buxom lip product fan. Their Plumping LipLiners are my go to, and nonetheless fall again on a few of their former matte lippies that they discontinued. Their newest innovation PillowPout Plumping Lip Powder, excited me since I’ve put eyeshadow on my lips earlier than and love that semi-matte sheen end. An previous make-up artists trick was to make use of eyeshadow on lips, typically for editorial pictures for that visually beautiful impact. Sadly, it’s not truly sensible for longwear since eyeshadow on lips doesn’t actually final, and previous these first few pictures it may give a dry, cracky, impact on lips. That mentioned the eyeshadow development led to a number of lip powders launching within the final yr however most of them got here in compacts and require a brush to use. Buxom’s applicator and concept was rather more intriguing.
Buxom’s PillowPout Plumping Lip Powder is the primary one I’ve seen in a wand and with the pillow high applicator. The formulation provides that sheen however affords a extra snug and moist software which was a pleasing shock. That mentioned the product isn’t with out it’s ups and downs. Whereas the packaging is a 10, the formulation and shade vary are good however not good.
First off the shade vary — the place is the intense pink? I wanted extra, there’s some winners in right here, however the shades I normally gravitate too weren’t included. Then once more when solely 10 shades launch it’s not simple to please everybody…
Swatched Left to Proper listed below are the 10 shades: Delicate Whisper (heat nude), Cozy Up (mauve nude), So Spicy (tawny pink), Cuddle Me (rose), Darling Dolly (true mauve), Need You (deep berry), Spoil Me (cool crimson), Flip Me On (heat crimson), Kiss Me (true crimson), Seduce Me (wine crimson).
As you may see, the shades are extremely pigmented however don’t precisely match the colour stickers on the packaging. The formulation guarantees to be a full-coverage, semi-matte and smudge proof. The formulation does a terrific job of coloring your lips however you want a number of functions to construct the protection. And whereas it guarantees to be long-lasting, It sadly didn’t survive my lunch. It opens with a minty style, prompting the texture of the lip plumper at work nevertheless it didn’t ship the way in which a few of their different lippies do. I did discover although that the end and sheen did a terrific job of constructing my lips look fuller however not due to the plumper. Backside line, cool idea and enjoyable product however I wouldn’t repurchase.
