New! BUXOM Va-Va Plump Shiny Liquid Lipsticks!


Press Sample

 

Buxom introduces Va-Va Plump™ Shiny Liquid Lipstick($20), a new crop of shiny liquid lipsticks that combines big, bold pigmented color with serious staying power and that fabulous famous Buxom tingle. To me, these feel like a combination between a matte liquid lipstick and a shiny gloss. Nice concept huh? I don’t know about you, I am SO over matte drying liquid lipsticks!

Va-Va Plump delivers vibrant color with a plumping tingle and comfortable lasting wear. The tingle is mild and doesn’t hurt or sting at all–it doesn’t last long but you will see a bit of a plump but don’t expect anything dramatic. It’s nothing like the burn of Soap and Glory’s Sexy Mother Pucker so no worries there–that stuff is intense and not in a good way!

The wide range of 20 shades packs a real punch of color and the breakthrough formula prevents the intense pigment from smudging, bleeding and fading for lasting results. I chose six of my favorite pink and coral shades and I am so happy with them! If you like sheer or lightly tinted color, these are not for you. These babies pack a wallop of opaque color!

  • Beg for Mauve is a light mauve or dusty pink
  • Feel the Passion is a warm rose
  • Push Up Pink is a bright pinky coral, my fav of the bunch
  • Gimme a Hint is a cool pink rose
  • Pin Up Plum is a gorgeous vibrant plum berry
  • Kiss and Tell is a vivid coral

Packaging is super cute. The liquid lipsticks are housed in a sleek black tube with a flared bottom. Small lip prints adorn the cap. The word Buxom and a clear stripe down the side allow you to see the color as well as how much product you have left. Nice touch and well appreciated!

I also love the applicator, it is curved to hug your lips and deliver the right amount of product in one swipe for BOTH upper and lower lips. I use the curved side to hug my lower lip and the other side for my upper lip–it really gets into the cupids bow and edges well offering a precise application. I didn’t even use a lip liner. Va-Va Plump applies so smooth, even the darker shades don’t get patchy or need a second application.  These do NOT dry out the lips and are very comfortable to wear!

The only downside I can see is that Va-Va Plump is not transfer-proof but I will gladly mark my glass for a non-drying lipstick any day. I wore Beg for Mauve while eating and drinking and did not have to reapply for about four hours–I did retain a bit of a stain so I could get away without reapplying but I love the glossy, shiny finish.

I hope you don’t mind me using Buxom promo photos of Eman lips. Mine are thin and dry at the moment and I always feel the lines above my upper lip distracts from the color of the lipstick. In these lip swatches Push Up Pink and Gimme a Hint look the same, but Gimme a hint has a lilac undertone. If you want to see my own lip swatches, let me know in the comments.

Bottom Line: Buxom’s Va-Va-Plump Shiny Liquid Lipstick has me impressed! Truthfully, I’m kind of obsessed! I love the color-rich shades, the applicator, and the wear time. If you’re like me and are sick of matte drying liquid lipsticks, you may want to try a few shades!
