Brand Overview

Buxom Wildly Whipped Lightweight Liquid Lipstick's name pretty much says it all. This liquid-cream lipstick has a lightweight, whipped texture that feels cushiony-smooth throughout wear. While this isn't as budge-proof as some liquid matte lipsticks can be, anyone who has experienced moisture-zapping long-lasting lip color will appreciate how much less drying this formula looks and feels!

Shade-wise, there's a well-balanced mix of softer, traditional hues, as well vibrant, trendier colors. Each goes on with rich opacity with a slight gleam in the satin-matte finish that helps keep lips looking supple.

The only downside is that the color tends to wear off a bit unevenly (it resists feathering into lines but transfers to cups and whoever you happen to be kissing). Nevertheless, this is one of the better lip products we've seen from the Buxom collection.

Note: This formula is infused with a subtle but detectable flavoring.

Pros:
  • Cushiony, whipped texture and satin-matte finish wear comfortably.
  • Well-balanced mix of softer, traditional shades, as well vibrant, trendier colors.
  • Slight gleam helps keep lips looking supple.
Cons:
  • Tends to wear off unevenly.
Jar Packaging: No
Tested on animals: No

Bare Escentuals At-a-Glance

Makeup is what this San Francisco-based cosmetics line is primarily about, and they use the pure and natural marketing angle to entice consumers. Founded in 1976 by Diane Ranger, who left the company in the early '90s Bare Escentuals was one of the first brands to introduce the concept of loose powder foundation. Since then, they have moved beyond it to include liquid foundations and tinted moisturizers and an ever expanding line of color cosmetics as well as skincare products.

The products are sold in most Sephora boutiques and Ulta stores, though the full selection of skincare products is most often found at the Bare Escentuals freestanding stores scattered throughout the United States.

We should note that loose powder makeup does take some practice to get the hang ofyet there is no denying that this type of foundation has its fan base. There is a lot to love about Bare Escentuals, even if mineral makeup isnt your thing (especially their price ranges, which have remained affordable in comparison to many of their neighbors at Sephora).

Strengths: Good makeup removers; a few well-formulated powders with SPF; some nice eyeshadows and impressive mascaras; some impressive foundations; several elegant brush options; not too expensive.

Weaknesses: Some of the loose powder products have texture and finish concerns; some of the skincare contain potentially problematic ingredients.
