BUXOM Champagne Buzz Eyeshadow

BUXOM Champagne Buzz Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “shimmering pearl.” It’s a light-medium, golden beige with a hint of warmer, peach undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good color payoff with a fairly soft and smooth consistency, though it was a smidgen powdery. It applied well to bare skin and lasted for seven and a half hours.

BUXOM Gold Status Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “metallic brass.” It’s a brightened, medium yellow gold with warm, almost coppery undertones and a frosted sheen. It had excellent pigmentation with a really smooth, buttery consistency that was a dream to apply. On me, it wore well for eight and a half hours. Milani Bella Sand (02) (P, $4.49) is lighter.

BUXOM Invite Only Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “matte terracotta.” It’s a medium, orange-toned brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture felt almost dusty in the pan, but it really worked well on bare skin; it applied evenly and smoothly, while the eyeshadow blended easily. It had very nearly opaque coverage and lasted for eight hours on me. Makeup Geek Frappe (P, $5.99) is more shimmery, darker. MAC Layin’ Low (P, $18.50) is lighter.

BUXOM Filthy Rich Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “matte chestnut.” It’s a medium-dark brown with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish.

BUXOM Famous Flirt Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “matte pastel peach.” It’s a light-medium, peachy orange with warm undertones and a satin finish. It’s definitely not matte; there’s a subtle sheen to the finish that is noticeable on the skin. It had good pigmentation with a soft, slightly powdery texture that still adhered well to the skin and wore for eight hours before fading. bareMinerals Shhh… (P, ) is less shimmery, darker. NARS Night Star (LE, $24.00) is more shimmery. bareMinerals Magnate (LE, ) is lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

BUXOM Mix & Mingle Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “matte vanilla.” It’s a light-medium yellowed beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture had a drier, dusty consistency that was thin, but it blended really well on the skin and didn’t look powdery applied. It had so-so color payoff that was buildable. On me, the color started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. Kat Von D Entomology (P, ) is darker. Tarte Breakfast in Bed (LE, ) is darker. LORAC Buff (P, ) is lighter. bareMinerals Pacific Sands (LE, ) is lighter. Tarte Just Malt Away (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter. Kat Von D Damned (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter.

Formula Summary: BUXOM Eyeshadow ($12.00 each or $40 for six) 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.
