BUXOM Pre-nup, Schmooze, Luxe Life, Posh Purple, Wild Nights, 24KT Stilettos Eyeshadows

BUXOM Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz. each or $40.00 for 6 x 0.05 oz.) is a new formula that is available as a customizable palette system, where you can purchase a single shade and an individual compact for $13 or purchase a six-pan palette, plus six eyeshadows to go inside of it, for $40. Each eyeshadow is held inside a metal pan that is (presumably) glued into a plastic pan that snaps into the compact/palette. The eyeshadows are easily lifted in and out of the palette, so you can rearrange them or create a new combination if you have more than one set of six. They will fit into a Z-palette, but you’ll need to add a magnet to keep it in place. The eyeshadow formula is one that works better in action than swatched, as several of the mattes seemed on the thinner, more powdery side, but then they would blend exceptionally well while adhering to bare skin–and they wouldn’t fade any faster than the more shimmery eyeshadows. The more shimmery shades tended to outperform the matte shades with better color payoff. These eyeshadows seem to have a slightly firmer press to them (more in the style of your average MAC eyeshadow), and they feel quite different compared to bareMinerals’ Ready line, as those have a thicker, denser consistency.

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.
