Like many make-up obsessed beauties, I am a huge fan of lipstick. One simple swipe can completely transform your look and unleash a new persona! Whether you’re feeling sweet in a pink coral or flirty in a purple berry or sexy in a vampy plum, you can be whoever you want, whenever and wherever you want. So when Buxom Cosmetics invited me to try their incredible Bold Gel Lipstick collection, I got crazy excited to get my lipstick on!
After playing around with all thirty (yes, thirty) amazing saturated satin and matte shades, I wanted to share with you three of my personal favorites!
So without further adieu, let’s get started!
I started out with a a neutral make-up base by using Buxom’s ‘Show Some Skin Weightless Foundation’ (in ‘fair game’), a pretty palette of neutral eyeshadows and finished off with a swipe of mascara from their nifty mascara bar: a really cool idea where the mascara comes with seven different brushes to create an array of lash effects, depending on your mood! How cool, right?!
Next, I used Buxom’s ‘True Nude Lip Foundation’ that I found just helps to smooth and cover your pout… but you can use it alone for a next-to-nude lip or under your gloss too!
Now, I am ready to play around with my looks using the Bold Gel Lipsticks!
LOOK 1: SWEET
For the first look, I chose to go a little sweet. This make-up look is perfect for everyday… and more often than not, you will most likely find me in a shade just like this beauty.
Note that I don’t usually apply lipgloss all over my pout, but mostly like to just add a little shine to the centers of my top and bottom lips for a more full look.
LOOK 2: FLIRTY
For look two, I was feeling a little feminine and flirty so I went with
in ‘Forbidden Berry’ covered with
in ‘Rose Julep.’
LOOK 3: SEXY
And last but not least, for my final look I was feeling a little sexy, devious and ready for fall in
in ‘Vampy Plum’ polished with
in ‘Dolly.’ This look would be perfect for a girls night out!
All in all, I seriously adore not only Buxom Cosmetics, but especially their new ultra-lightweight gel formula! Each shade is super pigmented, lasted forever and was really hydrating, which, for Arizona weather, is a must!
