Isn’t she lovely?
The Buxom Big and Healthy Lip Stick comes with a pencil sharpener, attached at the base, that you would use to resharpen it to a point. And um…I would advice you not to. So much product is lost!
It is a very warm red that teeters between a plum and wine in colour. Within the first few months of usage it leaves a tingly sensation on the lips. Also, when you first apply it, because of the tingly stuff they put in it, you get a plumped up push up bra look to your lips. I love it.
After three months of usage, which would involve you constantly closing and opening the cap, the tingly sensations lessened dramatically. So if you prefer a tingle-free product you won’t have to wait very long!
I have pigmentation on my upper lip and this lip stick covered it easily. Top marks all around!
Next up on the gauntlet is Clinique’s Take The Day Off Makeup Remover For Lids, Lashes, and Lips…
If you want to take off a very matte lip, or you have a full face of makeup on, this is your friend.
Clinique suggests that you shake the bottle, saturate a cotton bud with the solution, and wipe at your face and your lips. You could also use cotton bud, muslin cloth, and you can even, as I did, use some tissue paper.
It all came off like a dream. I would suggest giving your skin a good cleanse, and following that with a solid moisturizer, because, as is the case with any makeup remover that isn’t oil based, this is not designed to hydrate your skin.
