Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Balm

Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Balm in St. Barth

Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Balm is a lip plumping balm, from the creators of Bare Escentuals.  Named after world-renowned beaches, each of these lip balms claim to Plump, Tint, and Hydrate the lips.

Buxom Lip Balms are preservative-free, and enriched with Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, and antioxidant Vitamines C and E.  

They come in 5 Sheer Shades Bora Bora (sheer cherry red), Copacabana (sheer nude glow), Portofino (sheer plum wine), St. Barth (sheer lilac sheen), and Waikiki (sheer bright pink).

I picked up the color St. Barth. This color looks like a SHEER purple-toned, light pink on my lips.

Pros:  I like these balms because they are Long-Lasting and VERY moisturizing. Since using this I have noticed smoother, less cracked lips.  I use this balm OFTEN, and I've barely even made a dent in it, so u definitely get a lot of product.

Cons: I don't really like that I have to use my fingers to apply the product, but besides that the packaging is convenient, and there's even a mirror on the inside lid. I would also like these better if the colors had a LITTLE more pigmentation, because they remain extremely sheer even after layering.

Overall: I found that this product was really as moisturizing and hydrating as it claimed to be, but it barely leaves a tint of color on the lips.  If you're just looking for a good balm to help soothe dry chapped lips,  this balm would be perfect for you.

Availability: Sephora for $15
