I’m a Gloss Girl Now?

If you asked me a month ago what my favorite gloss was, I’d laugh in your face. Me… like lip gloss? Not going to happen, buddy. I was all about the matte lip. But, just as seasons change, so do my makeup preferences, and I guess I’m a gloss girl now? … who would’ve thunk it? Not me. No siree.

I’m slowly, and by slowly I mean frivolously, adding lots of lip glosses to my “loves” list on Sephora.com, but for the time being the glosses I’ve been loving are the Buxom Full On Lip Creams. For some reason, about two years ago, I had to have these after hearing good reviews about them so I went out and bought White Russian and Lavender Cosmo even though I had no interest in lip gloss at the time. I tested them out at home and liked that they made my lips tingle, but other than that they just sat unloved in my makeup drawer.

A couple weeks ago I was wearing a matte lip and sat down to take it off using my handy dandy coconut oil, and really liked the way it made my matte lip look glossy so I decided to reapply some matte lipstick and top it off with a Buxom Lip Cream and loved the way it looked. I still love matte lips, but I just like how the gloss looks fresh and makes your lips look nice and juicy.

So, the three Buxom shades I’ve been loving are White Russian, a nude pink, Lavender Cosmo, a pink lilac, and a mini size of Dolly, a mauve pink. These lip glosses are very glossy, creamy, not sticky, pigmented, but sheer, and they apply beautifully without tugging at the lips. They’re supposed to plump up your lips, which is why it tingles, but I don’t really notice a plumping effect.

If you’re looking for some new lip glosses to try then I really suggest these ones. I’ve been wearing them non stop on top of liquid lipsticks and love the way it looks and feels on the lips. No goopiness..no fuss.

What are some of your favorite lip glosses? I want to try more! I’ve been testing out one from Hourglass for a few days and love that one as well. Review or nah? Let me know in the comments below!

  • I love Buxom lip glosses especially for the warmer months. I’m more of a lipstick girl myself but in summer I think lip glosses are easier and lighter to wear.

    • Yes, the tingling sensation feels really nice during the summer when it’s hot out!

  • Ooh I’ve never heard of these so thanks for the introduction to them! I’m not a gloss girl at all but I may have to be converted in the Summer as I love the gloss effect xx

    • Buxom is a really good brand and not too expensive! Yes! I love the gloss effect when it’s warm out (which it’s currently pretty warm in TX already :( )

  • I was just watched Jaclyn Hill’s snapchat raving review of these… perhaps this is the universe telling me I need these in my life?

    • Ooh I don’t follower her on snapchat– I should! But yes, you do need these in your life ;)

  • Euueughhguhshhgh I was so close to buying these while I was in the US!!! I saw a pack of minis from an old collection at the outlets and I almost bought it…GOSH DARN. I mean I’ve wanted to try them since a few years ago but I just decided I didn’t need them! Considering I have so much gloss already…guh I’ll have to do without them :'(

    • Aww noooo…well hopefully you’ll make another trip to the states soon and can pick them up ;p. I hope you had a good trip!!

  • I think people are going away from the matte lips and going more towards glosses right now. I just don’t like sticky things on my lips so hopefully the makeup industry comes out with a gloss that looks glossy but doesn’t move…. and is hydrating? I want it all!!


    • I agree, especially for spring/summer! Haha that would be just perfect!!

  • I got a sample of this lip balm and I love it! I also love that minty taste of cool feeling when you have it on the lips!

    Miriam ♥ A whole lot of serendipity

    • Yes! I think that’s one of the main reasons why I love these so much haha

  • Dom

    Buxom glosses are really nice! I used to be obsesed with Dolly and their lip cream pencils. I would suggest you try YSL glosses and definitely Marc Jacobs’ Enamored Lip glosses if you haven’t already. xo Dom

  • Dolly is a really pretty colour! I’m not very big on glosses but there are a couple of formulas I do like, mainly Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfectors, YSL Glossy Stains and the Chanel Levres Scintillantes Glossimers.

  • Omg I’m the same way! I was all about the matte lip, I mean I literally didn’t wear anything else ever! But in my last couple of makeup looks, I’ve been going for a gloss, which is insane. Love, now I need to try the Boxom ones :)


    • I was the same! You’d never catch me in anything other than a super matte lip and now I’m kind of obsessed with topping off liquid lipsticks with a gloss.

  • These sound lovely! I usually avoid most lipglosses cause I haaate sticky lipglosses. It’s nice to know these aren’t like that! The one I really like is the Dior lip maximiser one. It’s totally converted me to lipglosses now and i’m always on the hunt for some new ones. Might give these ones a go sometime x

    • I hate sticky lip glosses too! I have to try the Dior one! I tried the Urban Decay lip gloss in Liar and love it. It’s not sticky at all!

  • I have always been a gloss girl and I looooove these Buxom glosses and polishes. I am so over the matte trend and I hope the fad dies down a bit soon. I hate the feeling of my lips being dry.

    • I do really like the feeling of having hydrated lips haha. Although, I’ll probably always have a soft spot for matte lips :)

  • These are so pretty! I always love your photos btw x
