Bare Escentuals Buxom to Love Review, Swatches, Photos
How the most joyful time of the year turns into a ball of stress and busy is beyond me. But that’s it in a nutshell isn’t it? The Holidays are all about stress, being busy, planning this, being there, being here, getting that done, shopping for this one, shopping for that one…no time for breathing…keep going!
I don’t have kids but I imagine it’s even more hectic with children involved in the mix.
There is one thing that doesn’t have to be stressful, your makeup.
The Bare Escentuals Boxom More to Love Set is a five piece selection of goodies for your eyes and lips that will simplify your Holiday look in as little as 5 minutes. Who doesn’t want a five minute makeup application that makes us look festive and fabulous?
The joy in this kit is it allows you to apply your make up in a snap and leaves behind an elegant, festive Holiday look. Who doesn’t want super easy to apply makeup that you can get into place in seconds? The only thing you need to add your look is a little blush as you have all the essentials for your eyes and lips in the set.
The set includes five full size products for $42. Purchased separately you’d spend over $80 so this is like getting each item inside for 50% off.
- Bare Escentuals Stay-There Eyeshadow in Collie (sparkling champagne)
- Bare Escentuals Big & Healthy Lip Tarnish in Scandal (dusky mauve)
- Bare Escentuals Buxom Lash Mascara in Blackest Black
- Bare Escentuals Big & Healthy Lip Polish in Clair (diamond/moonlit mauve)
- Bare Escentuals Insider Eyeliner in Onyx (absolute black)
Stay There Eyeshadow is a bouncy mousse formula that applies and blends easily. Prep your lids with a solid primer so it’ll stay in place for all night partyin’ wear. The shade is a nude sparkling champagne which doesn’t leave behind a ton of color but just enough to give lids a delightfully nude sparkle. This is one of those shades that pairs up beautifully with a lined eye as it doesn’t over do your look.
Both the Boxom Lip Tarnish and the Lip Polish are two great shades of wearable dusky mauve. The Lip Tarnish is a little on the drier side but it fills lips nicely and gives the illusion of pouty lips. Topping with the Lip Polish gives lips a hint of sparkle as well as extra color.
Insider Online I used on my waterline only but those with skill can attempt a lovely cat eye. The liner is creamy, doesn’t skip or tug, and smudges easily.
And finally the Buxom Lash has always proved a favorite of mine. This mascara volumizes and lengthens easily for fatter, longer lashes.
The only beef I had with the collection is the revamp of the Lip Tarnishes. BE has added on a nifty sharpener which I appreciate greatly but its made the pencil a little bit bulkier.
Outside of this minor rant Buxom More to Love has alot to love about it. I love the fact that I can get a fresh look in as little as five minutes using this set! With the stress of the Holidays upon us I’d say a more simple makeup regime is always the order of business.
I liked this set alot.
Muse Approved for purchase. Don’t let it pass you by! It seems a bit uneventful in a sea of beautiful palettes and Holiday sets but it has some great essential items to create a very pretty look for the Holidays.
Available at Sephora and Sephora.com
