BUXOM Pink Coquette Bold Gel Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 o z.) is described as a “satin bright warm pink.” It’s a light-medium, yellow-toned pink with a creamy, glossy finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a creamy, emollient texture that had a moderate amount of slip. The formula was moisturizing and comfortable to wear, but it only lasted for four hours with minor settling into lip lines. YSL Corail Jalouse (32) (P, $34.00) is glossier (95% similar).

BUXOM Ultraviolet Bold Gel Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 o z.) is described as a “matte bright violet.” It’s a bright, medium-dark magenta purple with cool undertones and a flat, matte finish. This was the most matte shade that I tried from the six I bought. It had good pigmentation with a velvety-smooth texture that didn’t drag or tug on the lips, but it does cling slightly. On me, the color wore well for six hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Urban Decay Bittersweet (DC, $22.00) is darker (95% similar).

BUXOM Voodoo Spice Bold Gel Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 o z.) is described as a “matte deep blue red.” It’s a deep, burgundy red with subtle, cooler pink tones and a semi-matte finish. It had good color coverage (almost opaque but not quite!) that applied evenly and smoothly without tugging on the lips. On me, it wore for a solid six hours and was very slightly hydrating.

FORMULA SUMMARY | BUXOM Bold Gel Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 o z.) is supposed to be a “lightweight” lipstick with “one-stroke color” available in matte and satin finishes that is “moisturizing.” The formula is semi-opaque to opaque with a lightly creamy to velvety consistency–the satins tend to be noticeably softer and creamier, while the mattes are more velvety and denser–with four to six hour wear time. Some shades are hydrating, while others are simply not drying.

Not sure if I can pull it off, but Ultraviolet looks pretty for spring. And Voodoo is definitely my kind of color, but I have multiple dupes in my stash right now, but glad it scored well for those who are interested
