Buxom Full On Plumping Lip Cream in White Russian | Our Reunion
hello, old friendI decided that it was time, after years apart to reunite with an old favorite lip gloss line and during a recent-ish Ulta Beauty sale, I picked up a new tube of the BUXOM Full On Plumping Lip Cream in the shade White Russian. Why this shade, in particular? Well, it turns out that I am just as susceptible to hype as everyone else is. Who knew? After giving it a go, does this gloss live up to my fond memories of this line? Read on, to find out.

why I love itBuxom Full On Lip Cream in White Russian is a soft, semi opaque creamy gloss texture in a lovely, very wearable nude-pink that is flattering to many skin tones and looks equally lovely alone or layered over other lip products. I love the scent of the Buxom glosses, to me they smell like vanilla and coffee - of course, that could be my coffee obsession talking - and they have a cool rush, gentle tingle when applied that is purported to help the lips look more plump. Honestly, I believe that effect is due more to the glossy finish than the "plumping ingredients" in the gloss. Either way, my lips do appear pillowy and more youthful when they are dressed in this lip cream and the lightweight, silky formula keeps them hydrated and happy for hours and hours.
My one teeny-tiny gripe, which is not the fault of the formula, is that the pigment in this gloss tends to settle in the naturally occurring lines in my lips, leaving it looking a little separated. Now, this isn't really obvious, at a casual distance and unless I've invited you to do so, you aren't going to be getting close enough to me to really see it so I don't let it bother me. Because I'm an old broad with those annoying little vertical lines running out from my lip line, I do use a clear or lip matching liner to keep this gloss where it belongs, and not crawling out all over my face. Ah, the perks of maturity. Wisdom and lip lines.
Gird your loins, gentle reader. Here comes the obligatory, shitty swatch shot. Sorry. Not really. But, yeah.
Oh, that one's a beaut, indeed. But it gives you a good idea of what's to offer. Kinda. Shit, maybe I should have deleted this mess. Too late, now.
the wrap up and where to buyMy reunion with the Buxom Full On Plumping Lip Cream $21.00 is a happy one, indeed and I'm so happy that I bought this gloss. I think that I'll pick up Dolly, I remember it being a great fave, a perfect My Lips But Better shade and of course I need Erica. Not only is it the perfect for me pink, it shares my name, even if they did misspell it. They really should rectify that, don't you think?
