Buxom Provocateur Full Bodied Lipstick

Buxom Provocateur Full Bodied Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “true red.” It’s a bold, brightened, medium red with very subtle pink undertones and that leans slightly blue. When I swatch it, I see slight blue undertones, but when applied–against my skin tone–it looks slightly warm-toned. Urban Decay F-Bomb is warmer. Edward Bess Eternal Passion is slightly muted. MAC Ronnie Red is bluer. Guerlain Garconne is darker. Dior Diorling is darker, more matte. Buxom Scoundrel is cooler-toned. Make Up For Ever #43 is more matte. See comparison swatches.

The finish is lightly glossy–a healthy sheen but not a full-on high-shine finish like a true gloss would have–and gives lips a smooth, plump look.  The consistency is lightly creamy and glides on with full color coverage in one stroke.  Provocateur wore well for six and a half hours, and it left behind a red stain that persisted for another two hours or so.  The formula is nicely hydrating and very comfortable to wear, and there was no scent or taste.

I have scoundrel, swinger and also exhibitionist and I love them all.
A couple of days ago I was wearing scoundrel and I was stopped 4/5 times by random people who wanted to know what it was.

This is really beautiful – and it looks like it feels good on the lips, you know? I may have enough red lipsticks to last me for ages but when you see one like this that’s of such good quality, it’s hard to avoid wanting it!

It doesn’t – Dragon is a bit deeper/darker, and it has slight shimmer, so it’s still quite a bit different! 🙂
