Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Cream - White Russian

About a month ago, I reviewed Buxom's Time to Shine Lip Gloss Set*, which you can see here. White Russian is included in this set, and it's the one that I've been wearing most! White Russian has been hyped up so much in the beauty community, so I was really excited to try it out for myself. Sometimes, hyped up products aren't actually worth the hype, but White Russian is amazing!

Buxom's Big & Healthy Lip Cream's are a really smooth, moisturizing gloss, with a minty scent. Here's how they are described on Sephora:

"Tingle, plump, and shine your smile to super-sexy proportions. No shimmer, no glimmer—this creamy lip gloss delivers velvety-smooth color with intoxicating shine. The hyaluronic filling spheres infuse lips with moisture for creamy soft perfection and the look of a full, extra-kissable pout. Vitamins A and E help keep the skin supple, yet protected, and the fun tingling sensation reminds you the gloss is hard at work."


I can't really comment on the plumping aspect of this gloss, since my lips are already quite large and I don't desire additional plumping. But, the minty, tingling sensation is definitely there! I quite like minty tastes and smells, but this isn't for everyone. The minty aspect does continue to work for the entire time the gloss is on your lips, it never wears off. I find this formula to be quite long-wearing, as I don't feel the need to reapply for about 5-6 hours! However, this gloss will not withstand eating or drinking. 


White Russian is a beautiful nude pink colour, it's very subtle and professional. This gloss reminds me of NARS' Turkish Delight, but much more wearable. I'm loving wearing nudes and berry colours on my lips this Fall, so White Russian has been shown a lot of love. I just have the travel size tube of this, since it came in the Time to Shine Set. Once I run out of that sample, I think I might have to buy the full size!


The Big & Healthy Lip Creams come with a doe foot applicator, in a really nice frosted glass tube with a metal cap. I love the packaging, I think it's really cute :) White Russian has quickly become a favourite of mine because it's so easy to wear, you don't need a mirror to apply, and the colour will go with any make up look. It's really a gloss that you can apply without too much thought. 

Have you tried any of Buxom's lip products? I feel a serious addiction coming on! I would love any recommendations that you had :)

    1. Isn't it a great set! :) White Russian totally lived up to the hype!

  2. I have Buxom in Samantha and I really love it!! :D I just wish you would get more product considering how expensive they are.

    I think I'll need to get White Russian!

    1. I haven't tried Samantha, I'll have to check it out!:)
      Yes, more product would be great, but these still aren't too expensive, compared to something like NARS
