Today’s swatches are a story of minor frustration. After several requests for (and a few raves about) Bare Escentuals’ Buxom Lips gloss, I finally buckled down to swatch them. I swatched every one I could find in Sephora — including the ones in sets, figuring this was my big opportunity to get them all. Well I got home and looked them up on Sephora’s website, and there were plenty of colors I didn’t find (argh!).
I also wish I’d swatched them with brush applicators. I didn’t think to take brush applicators with me, and Sephora only offers disposable doe’s foot applicators. The Buxom glosses have doe’s foot applicators themselves, but I think brushes make better swatches.
Anyway, the Buxom lips have a strong sweet scent (caramel?), which will keep me from buying these myself. Buxom glosses are $18 each, but Sephora currently offers a variety of holiday sets.
Katie is pale, silvery light pink with tiny sparkles. Amber is peachy pink with tiny gold sparkles. Jessica is a sparkly brown-pink duochrome. Bianca is peach with gold sparkles. Bambi is creme Miami coral-pink. Isabella is super sparkly/frosty caramel. Gabby is super sparkly/frosty purple-wine. Trixie is a sparkly pink-gold. Destiny is similar, but more red. Lacey is hot orange with very small pink sparkles. Kanani is pink with small blue sparkles. Candi is watermelon pink with pink and gold sparkles.
