Review: Bare Escentuals Buxom Lips

A review of the fantastic new lip plumper

Author: Charlotte Kuchinsky October 21 2008

Bare Escentuals Buxom Big and Healthy Lip Polish

As women age, their lip line begins to disappear. Even those who once had full, beautiful lips, suddenly find themselves fighting yet another nasty joke from Mother Nature. All women desire plump, sexy lips that men just naturally want to kiss. It reminds them that they still have something to offer the opposite sex.

Unfortunately, most women can’t afford expensive cosmetic surgery that runs into thousands of dollars or even collagen injections than can run more than $500 a pop, so they turn to less effective cosmetic alternatives. While some of the lip plumpers on today’s market work well for a few seconds, many don’t sustain that full, pouty look that women are searching for. Worse yet, many products actually dry out the sensitive skin of the lips, leaving them flaky- looking and painful.

Why Choose Buxom Lips?

Bare Escentuals Buxom Lip products definitely create fuller, more sensuous lips within seconds of application. Collagen-boosting ceramide helps to improve the skin of the lips and encourages new collagen production. The product is infused with bare minerals, and is therefore natural and safe for almost every type of skin. It leaves lips looking dewy fresh with luminous shine. Most of all, unlike most other lip plumpers on the market today, Buxom Lips isn’t at all sticky or tacky. And the gentle tingle feels good rather than the least bit painful, even containing vitamins A and E to improve the overall condition of the lips.

There are ten shades to choose from including peach, pink, plum, strawberry, mauve, and cognac as well as clear. Shades can be worn alone or in conjunction with other Bare Escentuals lip products. It takes very little product so a little goes a long way.


This is definitely the lip plumper to beat. So far it is the best I have found, easily beating out my previous favorite brand, Sally Hansen's Lip Inflation.
