Buxom Menace & Two-Timer Full-Bodied Lipsticks

Buxom Menace Full Bodied Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.13 oz.) 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.

Buxom Nudist & Hooligan Full-Bodied Lipsticks

Buxom Nudist Full Bodied Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “nude beige.” It’s a pale, warm-toned beige with a soft beige shimmer. It had semi-opaque color but was noticeably translucent, and it was a tad streaky–you could see little lines here and there. This was actually my least favorite of the entire range, because it just didn’t have the same luminous, rich look of the rest of the range. It lasted well for four hours, which is about average, and was marginally hydrating. MAC Pret-a-pretty is paler. Tom Ford Blush Nude is somewhat darker. MAC Innocence, Beware is pinker, darker. See comparison swatches.
