Buxom Dolly Full-Bodied Lip Gloss
Buxom Dolly Full-Bodied Lip Gloss ($19.00 for 0.15 fl. oz.) is described as a “shimmering sultry mauve.” It’s a medium, pinky-plum with fine gold shimmer. NARS Sweet Revenge (P, $26.00) is lighter. MAC Spontaneous (LE, $20.00) is cooler-toned, lessy glossy. Giorgio Armani #524 (P, $29.00) is less shimmery. Urban Decay Naked (P, $19.00) is lighter. NARS Oasis (P, $25.00) is less shimmery. Chanel Troublant (LE, $32.00) is similar. Bobbi Brown Naked Plum (P, $24.00) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
I bought this after I fell in love with Dolly Full-Bodied Lipstick. There are some similarities between the gloss and the lipstick, but the gloss is sheerer, more shimmery, and has a lighter pink base–it’s not as warm-toned as the lipstick. The formula is supposed to be a “sheer, shimmering, hydrating gloss with a no-tingle plumping effect.” It’s exactly as described: it had sheer color payoff–noticeable color and shimmer but the natural lip color comes through quite a bit–with a non-sticky, hydrating formula that wears three hours on me. The consistency is lightweight, comfortable to wear, and doesn’t settle into lip lines.
