Bare Escentuals Buxom Babes Diamond Lips Review & Swatches

Bare Escentuals Buxom Babes Diamond Lips ($28)
Bare Escentuals Buxom Babes Diamond Lips creates the look of fuller lips with 100% pure bareMinerals. Your lips will instantly develop a faux fullness, while a deep infusion of antioxidant vitamins A and E will keep lips soft, smooth, and protected. With a sheer tint and a diamond glisten, it’s as good for your lips as it is gorgeous.

Top to Bottom: April, Starr, Celeste, Clair

I put off purchasing Bare Escentuals’ Buxom Babes Diamond Lips set for the longest time, but after purchasing it I couldn’t for the life of me think why~~it’s that good! The colors are gorgeous, the formula is fabulous, and the shimmer will rock your world. I know that this post is long overdue and this set has been out for ages, bu I just couldn’t go without reviewing it for those of you haven’t purchased it yet!

Starr (sheer raspberry)

Surprisingly, Celeste, which I’d expected to be my favorite, is actually the gloss I use least out of the four. It tends to be a little frosty looking under certain lighting conditions, and if there’s one thing I dislike in a lippie, it’s frostiness. My faves are Starr and Clair, which I’d actually anticipated not liking–surprise susprise! I’ve been contemplating a full-sized version of Clair, it’s that gorgeous! It’s just the perfect demure pinky mauve that’s understated yet defnitely noticeable.

Clair (moonlit mauve)

The formula is another rave from my end. It’s not too sticky, yet clings tenaciously to your lips for hours on end. I wouldn’t say it’s much of a plumper, but it does impart a pleasant tingly/cooling sensation that I really do enjoy. This set really is love for me! Run out and get this set while they’re still in stock!
