FOTD and Buxom Lip Stick Review

MAC Memorabilia e/s outer corner

MAC Brule e/s to highlight
MAC Nightfish fluidline
MAC Sculpt powder
MAC Pleasantry Mineralize blush
Bare Escentuals Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Stick in Monte Carlo
Las Vegas ~ Monte Carlo
I bought these a few weeks ago and this is what I think of them.
Packaging ~ I really like the packaging. It's like a long fat lip pencil but it's a lipstick. This makes it really easy for applying so there is no need for a lip pencil because you can line with this as well.
Consistency ~ These are really smooth and creamy when swatched and first applied to the lips but after a minute when it sets it is pretty drying. It's best to wear a gloss or lip balm on top.
Lasting ability ~ These last for a long time probably because it dries out on the lips but it does last. It lasted on me for about six hours.
Plumping ~ Online it says it plumps them to their full buxom potential. I can't really tell if this plumps like it says. My lips are already full so it's hard to tell.
Tingle ~ This does have that minty tingle since it claimes to plump the lips. I don't really find the tingle bad. It's more of a cool minty feeling. The cooling feeling does last awhile. It doesn't burn, at least not to me.
Price ~ $18 This is a bit pricy for a lipstick.
Overall I really like these. I love the colors. I love the minty feeling and that it lasts, and that it's quick and easy to apply. I don't really mind that it's drying because a little MAC Tendertone on top solves that nicely. :-)
Thanks for following, reading, and commenting! :D
