BUXOM Fall 2016 Eyeshadows

BUXOM Silver Screen Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a brilliant lavender with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. This shade had more noticeable sparkle, though I didn’t notice any fall out during the day, which I think is owed to the denser, thicker consistency of the eyeshadow overall. It had great color payoff, and the powder had a smooth, cream-like feel to it that was blendable and adhered well on the skin. This shade wore well for eight hours. Giorgio Armani Rose Platinum (16) (LE, $39.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). bareMinerals Flash (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes #2 (P) is lighter (90% similar). Stila Frosted Lavender (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery (85% similar). MAC Crystal (DC, $16.00) is lighter, cooler, lower quality (85% similar). bareMinerals Shiver (LE) is lighter (85% similar). Makeup Geek Mood Ring (P, $12.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Girls, Girls! (LE, $22.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Datura (P, $14.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

BUXOM Fall 2016 Eyeshadows

There are six new shades of BUXOM Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) now available. All six are metallic, and I wouldn’t describe them so much as duochromes as I would say they have stronger bases compared to the shimmers, so they have more dimension to them, but I didn’t get genuine shift in the color.

5 Shades of Rose Quartz

Not one but two shades were selected as “Color of the Year” by Pantone for 2016. Their decision of choosing two hues, a pastel blue and pink, commonly associated as gender-specific colors, was explained as, “In many parts of the world we are experiencing a gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has in turn impacted color trends throughout all other areas of design. This more unilateral approach to color is coinciding with societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity, the consumer’s increased comfort with using color as a form of expression, a generation that has less concern about being typecast or judged and an open exchange of digital information that has opened our eyes to different approaches to color usage.” That’s what I like to hear! Here are five existing shades that line-up with the concept of Rose Quartz, which is a “warmer embracing rose tone.”

  1. Buxom Feather Boa — A Warm Pink with a Matte finish.
  2. NYX French Kiss — A Warm Pink with a Natural finish.
  3. Estee Lauder Desirable — A Warm Pink with a Natural finish.
  4. Zoya Rue — A Neutral Pink with a Cream finish.
  5. Inglot #356 — A Warm Pink with a Matte finish.

BUXOM Pink Coquette, Ultraviolet, Voodoo Spice Bold Gel Lipsticks

BUXOM Pink Coquette Bold Gel Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 o z.) is described as a “satin bright warm pink.” It’s a light-medium, yellow-toned pink with a creamy, glossy finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a creamy, emollient texture that had a moderate amount of slip. The formula was moisturizing and comfortable to wear, but it only lasted for four hours with minor settling into lip lines. YSL Corail Jalouse (32) (P, $34.00) is glossier (95% similar). Estee Lauder Impulsive (P, $30.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Native (P, $17.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Morning After (P, $17.00) is cooler (90% similar).
