Buxom Serial Kisser Set

Buxom Serial Kisser Set ($32.00 for 5 x 0.04 oz.) includes five shades of miniature-sized Full-Bodied Lipsticks. Two of the five shades are part of the permanent range, while three are limited to this set (as far as I know). A full-sized lipstick contains 0.13 oz. of product and retails for $21. The set is pretty much a value of $32 in lipstick, but the benefit is you get five shades instead of one and a half–so for less the price of two individual shades, you get five to play with. I like the idea of variety, as most of us don’t know what it’s like to finish a lipstick (at least not very often!). After trying these, one thing I didn’t love was how skinny the actual lipstick was, as it made application not as easy as when it’s using the full-sized bullet. They’re just really long and skinny, and I was worried they would break, but none of them did after using them, so at least that went okay! The formula is consistent with the permanent range.

Menace is described as a “rich wine.” It’s a rich, brightened berry-red with cool undertones and very fine ruby red shimmer. It had mostly opaque color with a barely-there translucency that kept it looking more lightweight in comparison to other shades in this formula. The finish was still glossy and luminous, though. It wore well for six hours, and it left behind a berry-ish stain. When I wore it, the formula of Menace was somewhat hydrating. Guerlain Gigolo is a bit darker. Guerlain Orgueil is similar. Giorgio Armani #408 is more muted. Burberry Bright Plum is similar. See comparison swatches.

Provocateur is described as a “true red.” It’s a bold, brightened, medium red with very subtle pink undertones and that leans slightly blue. When I swatch it, I see slight blue undertones, but when applied–against my skin tone–it looks slightly warm-toned. It was opaque and wore for six and a half hours. Urban Decay F-Bomb is warmer. Edward Bess Eternal Passion is slightly muted. MAC Ronnie Red is bluer. Guerlain Garconne is darker. Dior Diorling is darker, more matte. Buxom Scoundrel is cooler-toned. Make Up For Ever #43 is more matte. See comparison swatches.

Mistress is a slightly warm-toned, medium pink with a luminous sheen. It had rich, opaque color payoff and wore well for just over four hours. This shade was nicely hydrating and applied evenly and smoothly. MAC Hoop (DC, $15.00) is more matte. MAC Viva Glam Nicki (LE, $15.00) is brighter. See comparison swatches.

Centerfold is a pinky-mauve with neutral-to-cool undertones and a luminous sheen. It applied with mostly opaque color coverage, and the consistency seemed a bit more emollient with more slip compared to the other shades. It lasted four hours on me, which is about average, while being incredibly moisturizing. MAC Plumful (P, $15.00) is darker. Guerlain Rendez-vous (LE, $35.00) is shimmery. Chanel Paradis (P, $34.00) is shimmery. Bobbi Brown Wild Rose (LE, $24.00) is darker. Too Faced Razzle Dazzle Rose (P, $21.00) is slightly lighter. See comparison swatches.

Moonlighter is a fuchsia-shimmered, cool-toned berry with a pearly shimmer. It was semi-opaque, but it had a noticeable translucency, and in that sense, it was similar to Menace. It wore well for five hours, and then it had a stain that lingered for another hour or so. Revlon Plum Velour (P, $7.99) is not quite as shimmery. Urban Decay Venom (P, $22.00) is richer. Tom Ford Beauty Violet Fatale (P, $49.00) is purpler. MAC Rebel (P, $15.00) is less shimmery. NARS Valparaiso (P, $26.00) is more matte. See comparison swatches.
