I always tell myself I’m going to branch out and wear darker, more bold lip colors. However, nearly every morning, I find myself applying a nude gloss and calling it a day. Thankfully, I got a sample of a bold lip color, so now I have to follow through on my self-talk! Today, I am testing out the @buxomcosmetics Va-Va-PLUMP Shiny Liquid Lipstick in the shade Wine Me ($20 for .11 ounces – https://shopstyle.it/l/beqEU).
What it claims:
🔘 Takes lip color to a whole new level of sexy with lasting, bold, bombshell color, and the tingling lip-plumping action that Buxom is famous for
🔘 Available in intensely pigmented colors with vibrant lasting wear
🔘 An all-in-one formula that keeps your lips comfortable and kissable from dusk til’ dawn
🔘 Innovative curved applicator hugs your lips to deliver a precise application and saturated, super-lustrous color in just one swipe
🔘 High tech polymers and silicon elastomers make the formula creamy and supple, while helping prevent the intense pigment from smudging or fading
👍🏻 The shade is beautiful.
👍🏻 They aren’t lying when they say full pigment in just one swipe. I covered my lips in a single dip and that’s saying a lot because this applicator is mini.
👍🏻👎🏻 I noticed the slightest tingle, but it didn’t last. I like the tingle, so I wish it would have stuck around.
👍🏻 The formula is super comfortable. It stays looking creamy the entire time.
👍🏻 It has been on for three (3) hours and while it does transfer onto straws (reusable, of course), cups, food, etc., there was still a ton of pigment left after I was done eating lunch. So much pigment that I didn’t even feel the need to touch up.
I think I may be obsessed with this formula! It gives me long-lasting wear, but without the drying that normally comes along with products that do that. It’s super comfortable, the right amount of glossy and comes in some fantastic shades! I can’t wait to pick up more of them in their full size!
