Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Polish - April

I've been obsessed with Buxom's lip glosses lately, and my latest obsession has been with the shade April*. April is a beautiful shimmery light pink gloss with an incredible formula.


From Sephora:

"This bestselling, lip polish instantly creates the look of fuller, more voluptuous lips with luminous shine. Vitamins A and E help keep lips soft, smooth, and protected while the tingling sensation reminds you that it's working. "


I have a mini tube of this gloss, and I've already used up half of my tube! April is a beautiful shade on its' own, but I also love layering it over other lip balms or lip sticks. I find that this works beautifully over brighter lip colours, as it somewhat tones down a bold lip to make it more wearable. The amount of shine that these glosses give is just incredible. Your lips are left with an almost icy, glass like appearance. And with that amount of shine, you would also expect a highly sticky formula, right? Not this gloss! This is one of the most comfortable glosses I've ever worn, it's not sticky at all.


The formula of the Big & Healthy Lip Polishes is amazing. These glosses are meant to plump, not that my lips need any plumping! The gloss does have a tingling sensation, but it isn't extreme or uncomfortable at all. If you do kiss someone with this gloss on, they will also get the tingling feeling! I also find this formula very hydrating, which is uncommon in a gloss. This gloss doesn't dry out my lips or leave them feeling chapped. On my lips, this gloss lasts roughly 5 hours before I feel that I need to reapply, which I think is quite good!


I've already fallen in love with Buxom's Sugar, White Russian, and now April! I just picked up the Lip Cream in Cherry Flip, but what other shades do I need in my life? I have my eyes on Tonya, Dolly, Mudslide, and Pink Lady. :)
