I can’t believe I’m going to say this but the set doesn’t contain a single shade that I didn’t like. GASP! Whoa! Too many times I indulge in Holiday Lipgloss Sets that are made up of 50% off shades I like and the other 50 I don’t! But Dolly’s Opening Act has a great selection of wearable shades that I actually adore.

The collection is made up of the original Lip Polish formulas for the most part (three shades) and the other shades are Full-On Cream Lip Polishes. A majority of the shades here have a lovely tint but not full color however, a few shades do produce more than a mere tint! Berry Blast and Michelle both have excellent pigmentation and full opaque color on lips. The formula has a peppermint vanilla flavor and taste with a slight tingle when applied (beware if you’re sensitive) as this is a plumping formula. The sheerer shimmery shades have a lighter texture and leave lips with a plush, pout-y finish. These wear for about three to four hours without eating or drinking. The cream shades and more pigmented colors have a longer wear at around five hours without migrating, fading, or losing their intensity! For example Berry Blast easily wears for five hours so long as you’re not eating or drinking with it in place…! The formula is comfortable by not hydrating or moisturizing nor is it too tacky or sticky! The tackiness is just enough to allow the gloss to adhere to lips for a long wear but not so much so that it irritates you because it is too sticky.

This is a new way to open yourself up to Buxom Glosses if you haven’t yet tried them as you get six generously sized glosses for under $30 (and even less during the Sephora Friends and Family sale starting tomorrow).

As Buxom fans already, just check your stash prior to indulging as a few of these are repromoted shades!

You can get this now at Sephora and

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Hi, I know this is an old post, but I thought I’d let you know that you picture is being used on the scam website KissyBox (, formerly LippeBox, which claims to sell “dupes” (i.e., fakes) of big brand name lip products.

    I am a reader and lurker and hope you didn’t choose to support a scam business, so if they are using your pictures without permission you may want to reach out.

    • Isabella Muse

      I didn’t improve this and thanks for telling me erin! The website appears to be down, so I’m not sure who to contact regarding this. I’ll keep my eye on it and when the site comes back up will contact them thanks! They are def using my photos without permission and I am in no way affilated with their site at all!
