Buxom Full Bodied Lipsticks (Hooligan & Nudist) Review

When I made my beauty resolutions for the year, I vowed to cut back on my eyeshadow purchases in 2013. 

While I haven't stopped buying shadow all together, I have definitely bought less this year than usual so I'm proud of myself.

Unfortunately, I seem to have replaced my eyeshadow obsession with a lipstick obsession.

I swear, it feels like I've already bought 55 tubes and it's only April 30th. 

Okay, I haven't really bought that many but I've been a lipstick buying kick for sure. 

Just today, I popped into Walgreen's to take advantage of a sale on water and Diet Coke and walked out with five - FIVE! - new Maybelline Color Whispers and Revlon Lip Butters (they were having a BOGO-1/2 off sale... they always lure me in with those.)

But I have found some pretty fabulous new lipsticks recently.

Exhibit A - the Buxom Full Bodied Lipsticks.

I'm a big Buxom fan, so I knew immediately that I'd be trying these when I heard they were coming out.  I picked one up back in March when I was in Vegas, and just this month, I bought another during Sephora's VIB sale since the Sephora in Vegas didn't have the shade that I originally wanted and I had to go with a second choice.

The two shades I chose are Hooligan and Nudist.

Buxom Full Bodied Lipsticks in Hooligan and Nudist

Hooligan is a pretty, rich mauve shade.

Nudist is a peachy nude shade.

I don't mean to be overly dramatic, but I am absolutely in love with these lipsticks. The formula is so creamy and smooth, and it's loaded with moisturizing ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil, vitamins C and E, and encapsulated hyaluronic spheres so it hydrates the lips instead of drying them out. 

They feel so comfortable and offer really good pigmentation so even though they're really creamy, they last a decent amount of time on the lips -- I can get a couple of hours out of them (while drinking constantly) which is pretty amazing for a lipstick that feels this good.

Both Hooligan and Nudist have a creamy finish with no glitter or frost.

Hooligan is one of those shades that instantly makes me feel super sophisticated and polished. While it's a deeper mauve shade -- that I think would work beautifully on darker skin tones -- it doesn't overwhelm my fair skin at all.

Nudist is a really wearable nude shade for me because of the peachy undertones -- and you know how much I love me some peachy shades.  Darker skin tones might find it a little too light so I'd suggest swatching it at Sephora to see if it works for you. 

I really can't recommend these lipsticks enough. They retail for $21 at Sephora, and come in 10 shades that range from classic red to sultry wine. 

I would pick up another one in a heartbeat but none of the other shades particularly call to me.  I may have to take a trip to Sephora one of these days and swatch them to see if I've overlooked any...

Have you tried the Buxom Full Bodied Lipsticks?  What's your favorite shade?
