Not for me Oily Lip Balm
Rating: 
2 / 5
2 / 5
Pros: pigmented, semi sheer
Cons: grease, very oily, limited color choices
I love BE and use only their products when it comes to foundation and concealer and so on. I also use only BE blush and eye colors. I can't use their lip products. Not in any enjoyable way. This lip oil balm didn't sound like the product I was hoping they would add, a chubby liner lipstick like the Quick Stick they used to make and now just about every other brand makes. But I had to try it! I found 2 other brands I am happy with for lipstick but still wish BE offered something other than lipstick + liner that might stay in place. This is a very oily balm!!! I would call it greasy. I keep my lips in good condition because they tend to chap but I didn't find this to be very nourishing as I am used to BE products being! I guess everyone has different experiences with how these work on them so it could be to do with chemistry but I found it useless! It felt like it never went on much at all. I even tried Buxom Bare Nude Foundation in Clear under it and it didn't help much but why would I want a balm that I need additional products to feel comfortable using! Sorry LOVE the brand other wise. Can't-live-without but just not this nor much of the other current lip products. 2 stars because the brand is trustworthy. Product gets -0- sorry.

True Nude Colorless, great lipstick helper!
Rating: 
5 / 5
5 / 5
Pros: stays put, helpful
Cons: shades are too brown, mixes with your lip color product
I use the Universal Colorless (clear). Lipstick and such should not need an entire additional product to stay-put on your lips but most of them do need help! Thankfully Buxom created such a product. I use the clear with everything. The additional True Nude shades are beautiful. I tried most and have 2 though they do not work well with my coloring. Too brown or warm and do tend to mix in with whatever I apply over. I would like to wear these as a gloss base if only Buxom would create more shades. They are not drying. They are not moisturizing they do a job and do it well! The new Buxom Gel Lipstick work very nicely with these. Buxom Full-On Lip Stick doesn't need much help! Perfect product as is.

Beautiful 5 star set, even if my experience was a bit eventful...
Rating: 
5 / 5
5 / 5
Pros: beautiful, great value
Cons: color misrepresented in photo
Unbelievable value! Even two of these items are worth the $. Ready Quads I never buy but thrilled when they're part of a kit. Grabbed this during a 12hr sale. I could not research the details as much as I usually might, if you've ever shopped the sales you know items can sell out while in your cart! YIKES! I'd purchased Glamour Now AD from elsewhere but skipped one or two. Thought this was one... felt great to have a second chance... but...
Gloss and blush looked like nice cool red. Not my usual but I don't yet have those colors in my collection so, score! Received the set, the gloss had broken and was all over (never happened before#. Would have been more disappointed if it was not a wrong soft pink gloss? Blush also soft pink, not red. Love pinks but have so many! And turns out I'd already bought this exact set years ago so I really missed the opportunity to order something else during the 12hr sale. B/t the stress of items selling out and the enticing colors in the photo #that do not exist) I chose poorly.
Turns out the description is accurate, the photo is not. Of course CS made it right but it is still disappointing to not receive what you believe you ordered. Still thrilled to have another quad and some of the others. Not a bad experience but cant help feeling it was avoidable! Even if I'd had the time to research more fully, ordering makeup shouldn't require detective skills. Just a mistake and BE is great about that. I love BE and will always order directly from here just wish there was a little time to be able to feel certain what is in your cart is yours!

Loving Vanilla Sugar!
Rating: 
5 / 5
5 / 5
Pros: luxurious
I've been wearing BE since 2006. I occasionally try others if a friend highly recommends or something gets me too curious, but never am swayed away. I am the one who sways friends successfully! I love eye shadow though don't do up my eyes like I did when I was younger. Nowadays, I enjoy wearing Well Rested with a touch of something over. I have a ton of lose and also quite a few Ready Palettes. So much fun! I recently opened a pot of Vanilla Sugar and oh boy is that gorgeous! It's considered a peach, on me it looks like a warm creamy bright neutral beige with maybe a hint toward peach and complete velvety coverage, so don't be afraid to try it if you are looking for subtle elegance. I never tire of the pure luxury that is Bare Escentuals. This is definitely one of my favorite shades. Mattes are best as you can always add a little shimmer, but can never take it out! I hope Vanilla Sugar never gets discontinued!

Buxom Full Bodied Lipstick
Rating: 
3 / 5
3 / 5
I tried Buxom Full Bodied LipStick in Nudist. Went on like a very light layer of oil. Also seemed to have an irridescence to the color I wasn't expecting and didn't really like. Also tried the mini set. Loved the color called Centerfold but again the feel was not my favorite. My favorite lip product is Buxom FULL ON Lipstick. I am hoping this new product is not a replacement as it cannot replace a wonderful lasting matte lipstick like Buxom Full ON Lipstick.

LOVE Buxom Full On Lip Stick!
Rating: 
5 / 5
5 / 5
Pros: 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!
Rating: 
5 / 5
5 / 5
Pros: 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
Rating: 
5 / 5
5 / 5
Pros: 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!

They should call it MIRACLE Veil!
Rating: 
5 / 5
5 / 5
Pros: miraculous, necessary
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!

My eyes - in a perfect world!
Rating:

5 / 5
Pros: miraculous!
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!

Questions
 
Which lip liner colors are matches Speak Your Mind lipstick?
I love BE but haven't had good luck with their lip products in recent years. Nothing stays in place and there aren't many color choices which does not help. I use only BE but for lips I have found a few other brands I now adore. Lip product that doesn't need liner at all. Have to wonder why they stopped making the Quick Sticks. Now everyone else is making similar products but BE only has gloss, liner, oily balm and very not matte lipstick. I don't want to give up. Just tried Speak Your Mind. Nice color but so in need of liner!!! I tried one from another brand and it helped a little. I can't tell which colors might work with it. HELP! :)

Can you use the eyeshadows as an eyeliner or brow color?
BM used to sell powder eye liner and brow color. I miss them so much! I think if you wet the black eyeshadow it could work as a liner, correct?
I have not used shadow for brow or liner. At the suggestion of a BE rep I have used the ready eyeliner for brow color. It worked well though I do still prefer the original brow powder which has become available again, yay!

What's the difference between Flawless Radiance vs. Mineral Veil?
I don't see the difference. The only difference is the price..
Have you tried Mineral Veil? I use it as a last step because it seems to pull your face together and just kind of perfect it! Like airbrushing or filter effect for your complexion. I don't get that same result from Radiances. Those are more like a highlighter, give more of like a glow which I like but wouldn't call it a can't-live-without. MV definitely is!

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! :)
