LOVE Buxom Full On Lip Stick!

Phrases Chosen: cannot-live-without perfect product!
I only use BE but now that Buxom belongs to Sephora I find I still can't give it up especially this product, Buxom Full-On Lip Stick. I'm into lip product and this is my main can't-live-without! I have most of the current colors plus some that are no longer available. I use several each day. Vienna is my favorite lately and for a while now. Been out of stock at Sephora and I am NERVOUS! I also use Las Vegas which is a little bright but nice medium pink. Marrakech is pure nude, great when you want a neutral base. Sydney slightly Pink nude. London is like baby peach pink. Nice over others when the mood suits. Havana looked too dark but one layer is daytime perfection. Two is black tie attire. I have Brooklyn similar to San Francisco which is better with my coloring. As I'm writing about these I want to put some more on. They perform well and are a lot of fun. Lasting and not drying. I wish BE would make them again or something very similar. Their Quickies are not quite as good but not even a regular product and only at QVC. This is a necessary item! BE needs to carry these on a regular basis. THANKS

Completely Amazing Lipstick!

Phrases Chosen: smooth, amazing, lipstick
I love make up especially love lip products. Pretty Amazing is like nothing else out there and I mean that in a good way. Goes on like gloss but behaves like lipstick. The initial reviews I read made me concerned about the color choices but to each her own I guess. Confidence is the most beautiful lip color ever created! Much better than I was expecting from the pics. Moxie is a very warm bright light pink but a nice choice for day I usually wear under something cooler. Witty is a rich cool berry color and Free Will is nude perfection! All are full coverage with two coats. I love this product.

Lovely Lip Gloss

Phrases Chosen: elegant, pigmented
The first time I tried Moxie Gloss I liked it more than I was expecting. Delicate and smooth. Love the tip. Truly felt like elegant lip gloss. I have many by now but my favorite color is Dare Devil. Got it in a kit and boy am glad. I never would have purchased one that looked that dark in the tube but wow! So pretty more pigment that expected but still sheer. I've been in love with Buxom lip products since I first tried BE 6-7 yrs ago. Since hearing Buxom is no longer made by BE I would like to stop using them but I can't yet. Hoping BE makes a Moxie line to match Buxom!

If you're trying BE for the first time DO NOT leave MV off your order! If already a BE lover, get ready to fall in love all over again. My first try with BE - I had no idea what I was doing. Ordered the wrong color foundation, colors in the set I got were nice but a tad warm for me. Was used to conventional foundation so probably not swirling and tapping and buffing just right! Still looked okay though. THEN the last step! A layer of Mineral Veil and VOILA! Truly amazing to see what that one product could do! Pulled it all together! I've since found the right foundation and have become more skilled at applying and choosing products. My fave MV is original but I love layering Illuminating MV over. I actually converted a friend with that one product. She now loves the Tinted Illuminating MV so I guess I have to try that. ;) BE is the best and keeps getting better!

I'd give 10 stars - easy! If you want to be convinced do just do one eye first! Truly amazing! I've always been prone to some darkness around the eyes, genetic I think. BE Well Rested really does make your entire eye area look even, bright and yes rested. I also sometimes use it elsewhere, the way I use Bisque. And have been experimenting with other similar neutral tone shadows as concealers/brighteners, so if the tone of WR isn't just right for you, maybe another... Been using BE for 4-5 yrs. So much fun! Great performance - gotta say WR, Bisque and MV are true miracles!

Are there chemicals in this product? If so, what are the chemical based ingredients?
Looking for a lip gloss that does not contain chemicals. But I like the color options in the Moxie Lipgloss product and I'm hoping it is all natural. Please let me know.
Bare Escentuals products are 100% natural!

Does anyone notice if these lipcolours darken your lips..significantly?. Most lipsticks turn very dark on me.
I always end up throwing new lipsticks away because my darker pink natural lip colour turns everything too dark.
I don't find that BE lip products change color once applied other than that they sometimes look better on than in the tube. I have experienced that in the past with other brands that change as you wear them through the day, yuck. Pretty Amazing goes on like gloss. Start with one thin layer. I think you will find good results.

Can you please tell me if these new Moxie lipglosses have a fragrance?
I am very allergic and have been unable to wear the Buxoms for this reason. Thank you!
I'm a big fan of Buxom lip products and miss having them here. I've tried a few Moxie colors in sets! Nice enough gloss product but I personally prefer Buxom. I do find there is a similar type and amount of scent to the Moxies. Sweet and minty. If you think you can, it could be good to try Moxie. Maybe the ingredients differ enough that you will find you can use Moxie w/o issue. Good Luck!

I'm having trouble selecting an everyday blush. I am a true 'autumn' color wheel with auburn hair brown eyes and a medium complexion.
I use medium beige foundation most of the time although I blend with tan/medium for the summer and winter months. I'm debating between a blush or glee all over face color (or both). Any insight would be helpful!
My favorite blush effect is Soft Focus Glee. With your autumn-y skintone you may also like Warmth. These tend to give a completely natural glow rather than the added hue of a blush color. You can alway add blush over. :)

Help in choosing a right shade
I've been trying to find the perfect blusher to create a natural looking flushed look and have been using pinky shades but as always, they are too pink for me.
Would anyone recommend this shade or any other shades for an Oriental girl?
I find the best product for creating that natural blushing flushed look is not blush but Soft Focus Glee. Apply as blush or more as many layers as you need. I then use MV over and sometimes one last little stroke of SF Glee over that if needed. Good luck! :)
