Be a Buxom Babe with Bare Escentuals

July 22, 2009

It looks as though Bare Escentuals has taken the Buxom line and run with it – first we had glosses (which are fabulous by the way), then the Buxom Mascara, and now they’re inundated us with a plethora of new Buxom goodies!

Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Stick ($18)
Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Stick works three full-time jobs—it defines the shape of lips like a liner, fills them in with creamy velvet color, and then plumps them to their full buxom potential. It’s a three-in-one lipstick that’s quick and convenient for defined, colorful, buxom lips anytime, anywhere.

Buxom Lashliner ($15)
Lash addicts beware: Buxom Lashliner is highly habit-forming. This may look like just a liner, but it’s also a thickening and conditioning treatment that instantly takes the appearance of your lashes from hardly any to very many. The mineral-rich, paraben-free gel formula is made with natural ingredients, including vitamins A, C, and E; Honeysuckle; Jojoba Oil; Soy Protein; Tourmaline; and Biotin (vitamin B), which support healthy lashes. In one fluid stroke, you can fill in the base of your lashes—making them appear lusciously longer and fuller.

I don’t really see how a gel liner can be anything more than a gel liner, but I’m willing to give this a shot — you know I’m all about the lashes!

Buxom Lashliner Brush ($15)
From the moment it meets your lash base, the ultrafine, tapered point of this sexy, silver Lashliner Brush delivers a graphically precise line of Buxom Lashliner that gives your eyes a heavy dose of drama. Applying Buxom Lashliner with this easy-to-use tool enables your lashes to reach their full buxom potential, starting from the roots. Dip into Buxom Lashliner and apply along roots of lashes for instant conditioning benefits, lash enhancement, and long-term nourishing effects for lusciously longer, fuller-looking lashes

I’m liking the look of the ultra-fine tip on this brush, but I do find myself wishing this had a bent/angled tip to make for easier lining.

Buxom Insider Eyeliner ($14)
Buxom Insider Eyeliner delivers rich, long-wearing color that’s so gentle you can apply it to the inner rims of your eyes for the deepest, most dramatic definition. The silky, emollient formula contains a healthy blend of antioxidants and vitamins to protect the delicate skin along your lash line from environmental damage. It can also be applied along the outer lash line for the maximum effect and glides on without tugging or irritating your eyes.

I can’t speak for the quality of these products as they just launched online and I have yet to see them in stores, but I am pretty happy with the overall $14-18 price points on these. Definitely wallet-friendly!
