Sneak Peek: Buxom Eyeshadow Bar Singles (x12) Photos & Swatches

BUXOM Customizable Eyeshadow Bar Palette
BUXOM Customizable Eyeshadow Bar Palette

BUXOM Eyeshadow Bar is a customizable palette system that consists of single and six-slotted palettes with 40 eyeshadows that can be inserted. I created two palettes–one brighter shades, one more neutral shades–so I can get a good feel for the range and its quality. When you purchase the six-pan palette and six eyeshadows, the total price is $40, but you can only get the discount once per order (I had to place two separate orders). Each eyeshadow pan is housed in a slim plastic container that pops into the larger palette, and they snap in and out quite easily. Full reviews to come once I finish testing these!

Buxom Winner Takes All Lip Set

Buxom Winner Takes All Lip Set ($32.00 for 0.35 oz.) includes three shades of Full-On Lip Cream and three shades of Full-On Lip Polish. The Lip Cream formula is described as a “creamy, no-shimmer lip gloss” with “sheer to medium” coverage.
The Lip Polish formula is described as a “sheer, shimmering lip gloss with a tingling, plumping effect.” The texture of both formulas was light-medium in thickness, creamy, and moderately tacky (the Lip Creams seemed slightly less tacky than the Lip Polishes). The Lip Creams had a tendency to settle into lip lines, and they’re true to the “no-shimmer” part of the description. The Lip Polishes are sheer with a fair amount of fine shimmer with a glossy shine.
