Buxom Swinger Full-Bodied Lipstick
Buxom Swinger Full-Bodied Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “vivid magenta.” It’s a cool-toned, blue-based magenta–it’s a mix of fuchsia and purple, but I would say it leans closer to purple than fuchsia (but still not a true purple!). It has a creamy, luminous finish. Urban Decay Anarchy and Maybelline Electric Fuchsia are pinker. Maybelline Hot Plum is darker. MAC Dear Diary is slightly brighter, more matte. MAC Night Blooming is purpler. MAC Candy Yum Yum is brighter. See comparison swatches.
The consistency is so lovely–creamy with slip but not so much slip that it just slides around. It stays in place, doesn’t bleed or feather during the six hours it wears (and it stains a bit fuchsia for another hour or so), and is such a comfortable, nicely hydrating formula to wear. The glossy finish gives lips a really plump, luscious look. Swinger is fully opaque with little product needed in order to achieve full color coverage. The formula is also unscented and has no taste, and as a little bonus, it’s a bit more product at 0.13 oz. than most lipsticks.
