Best Lipstick of 2010 & Buxom City Slickers Giveaway!!

I started to add lipstick to my ‘Best Of 2010’  post and then realized there were too many new and awesome lip products that came out in 2010 and they deserved an entire post to themselves. So……

Best Lip Gloss Set

Bare Escentuals Buxom City Slickers is the best lip stick/lip gloss set of 2010. This mini lip color collection features four Big & Healthy Lip Sticks and four Big & Healthy Lip Polishes. All plump up the lips and have a nice minty sensation. With endless combinations limited only by your imagination, this set is perfect for all beauty buffs. I’m so excited to be giving this set away–I want everyone to be able to experience this innovative product! Keep reading for details of the giveaway.

Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick ($19) –these fantatic lipsticks made their debut in 2010 with 50 shades and three different finishes. This lipstick formulation has 50% more pigment than traditional lipsticks. MUFE also has a unique shade finder tool to help you pick the perfect shade based on your skin tone.

Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick ($30)– new in 2010 with a superior long lasting formula, the lipstick names are based on Coco Chanel’s world. When the new lipstick launched in late February, there were 37 shades and believe me, it set the beauty world (and us bloggers on fire)!

Tarte LipSurgence Natural Lip Stain ($24)– is it a lipstick? A gloss? A stain? No Superwoman, it’s all three! Finally, a stain and gloss all in one! a gel lip tint that’s not only moisturizing, but has vitamins and good-for-your-lips ingreidents! Six glossy and six matte shades.

My Favorite Lipstick Shades in 2010

Paul & Joe Lipstick in Morocco ($22) – introduced with the Summer 2010Sahara Collection, this warm neutral shimmering pink became a summer staple for me.

MAC Viva Glam Cyndi Lipstick and Lipglass ($14) –My friend KarlaSugar and I often choose the same lipstick colors so when she told me about Viva Glam Cyndi I rushed to my local MAC counter for a look.  I was not disappointed, Viva Cyndi is a gorgeous coral red that can be applied sheerly or built up. The coordinating lipglass is super shiny and can definitely be a stand alone product. How could I not love it? Duh– it’s Cyndi Lauper’s creation! Even though she does spell her name wrong 🙂

Lipstick Queen Jean Queen Lipstick and Gloss Set ($36)-Poppy King brought us Jean Queen in 2010–a lipstick and gloss set that goes with everything and brightens the face beautifully! A true neutral pink, it’s suitable for all skin tones and is great for everyday wear. Clearly one of my best purchases of 2010, it nevers leaves my makeup bag.

Best Lip Balm – Reviva Labs Vitamin E Oil Stick ($4) – pure Vitamin E oil and other hydrating ingredients in a lipstick bullet keeps your dry lips soft and smooth. It also works great as a base underneath lipstick and even under the eyes. At $4, keep one in your purse, your desk and nightstand!

On to the giveaway! Thanks to the wonderful people at Bare Escentuals Buxom, one lucky Prime Beauty reader will win the Buxom City Slickers Set, a value of $39!  The giveaway is limited to the U.S. only. One winner will be chosen by random.org at midnight PST on Monday, January 10.  Entering is easy, just leave me a comment telling me your favorite shade/color combination. See swatches here.

  • While I really mistrust those “clinical trial” claims about lip plumpness, I love buxoms!! (Just about any buxom kit that comes out will get a close look, and if I don’t already own half of the items, I’ll get the kit. Have you tried the Buxom Rock Stars? Julie and Tonya are amazing!!)

    Bombay is my favorite lip stick color from this collection, and Michelle is my favorite lip polish. I don’t like them together, necessarily. I’ve worn Fresno with Denise, to soften down Fresno’s darker tones a bit so that it works better for me; but I think my favorite combination is Marrakech with Michelle.

    I follow you on Twitter (@sparklecrackHQ), I’ve tweeted about this giveaway http://twitter.com/sparklecrackHQ/status/22021247239987200 and I posted about your January of giveaways on my blog a few days back: http://www.sparklecrackcentral.com/MMU/blog/entry/january_beauty_blog_events/

      HAHA ain’t it the truth though?

  • Diane

    Oh my goodness. How can I possibly choose what is my favorite combination. After sitting here for 35 minutes and since I need to get to sleep 5 hours ago, I suppose I’ll have to go with the Vienna/Denise. I always love Pink whether it looks good on me or not. It reminds me of the innocence I once had.

    Thanks for another great giveaway.

    I got hooked on the Tarte lipsurgence this summer (I used the glossy one in Enchanted) that I had to buy more of the matte ones this fall (I got Exposed, Lucky and Hope–my favorite!). But I also LOVE the Buxom glosses by BE. I have a ton of their colors, too. Sign of a true makeup addict???
