A91341 - Bare Minerals Buxom Babes Winter Escapades Lip Color 4-pc. Set
Bring on winter, I'm a winter escapades gal.
I bought these this past winter and I love the colors! My favorite by far is the HOPE, I adore this subtle shimmer of color on my lips!!! Please, please, please make this color in a full size version!!!!!
Great lipgloss kit!!
I love this kit, it's great! I love the shimmery, sparkliness of them! I wanted to try them because of two of the colors in the kit, plus trying a red lipgloss intrigued me since I tend to shy away from red lipstick and glosses (I have strawberry blonde hair and fair skin), but I thought i could try it in this kit. All the colors actually look great on me so that's a big plus! I didn't buy them here, I actually bought them from the official site because they were on sale. I mostly got it to try Hope, I saw the video for it (or saw a presentation on QVC) and thought Hope looked really pretty and I wanted to try it. Well let me tell you when I got it in the mail, I tried Hope first and the first thing out of my mouth was "Wow!!" I LOVE it!! It is soooo pretty!!! And I love how it sparkles (I'm a major sparkle person)!! I fell in love with it! I know some say they don't like it because it's too sparkly or whatever, but not for me! The sparklier the better! lol You can all give me your Hopes from this set! haha I found out they sold it separately on here so of course I had to buy it! I loved it that much! But anyway, all the colors are great, sheer enough to wear for a casual day or you can add more to bump up the color or even wear them over a lipstick or lipstain. I love all the colors and think they're all beautiful. I think I like the diamond kit a little bit better though since it's got more sparkles in it. :) But I love Buxom and think they're great glosses. I love the cool, minty feeling they have on the lips (I never notice a tingling so I don't think they tingle at all to me). But I'm soooo glad I discovered Hope, it it such a beautiful color!! I'm already pretty much out of Hope from this kit so it's a good thing I already have the full size one! And I've only had this kit for a month or less! Please Leslie, never stop making Hope! It's such a great color! I'm so glad it's available in the full size by itself. Even if I could only get in that other kit with the other Buxom I'd buy it (because I'm sure I'd love that color too, you can't go wrong with any of the Buxom's I think). If you love Buxom glosses, get this kit, you'll love it! They're all great colors!
Great for us oldies!
Lovely for us older makeup nuts, applied carefully and sheer, very attractive! I've been thru doe-eyes , panstik, pancake fashion years and others, and now at 70 must wear light, minimum cosmetics. BE does that for me. Wish BE would make a whole kit for us older gals! the only colour I did not care for was deeper colour and found a friend that loved it. Since I still do light eye liner learnt not to do both eyes and lips at same time. The same with sailor girl set too.
i just love the buxom sets when they come out and this kit did not disappoint. i really like all 4 of the colors, but the two that i have worn the most are merry and joy. joy is a red without being too overwhelming. merry has recently become one of my go-to neutrals. i love the way my lips look and feel with this product. great job!!
Love!!!! Holly Rocks!
I love these however I wish QVC would get the colors right in the description! Holly is actually the reddish color. Joy is the buttercream. I see so many reviews where people love the red color but call it by the wrong name! Buxom lippies are great! They are tingly but not overwhelming, stay on well, and just generally feel great on!!!! Holly is my favorite color in this set and I wish there was something comparable!!!
Great Colors. Good Red for the TImid
I orderered and re-ordered so many of thise. gave out 2 for Christmas gifts...I want them back!! All these colors work. Even the red "Merry". These are colors I wear every day. you can temper the red with any of the others. the only drawback is that the product is small in large tubes. Buxoms don't have staying power ('specially anything with sparkle) and I can go through one of these small tubes in 2 weeks. I have dry lips; these don't cure them, but make them less needy throughout the day. they don't only look good, they do moistureize, to some extent. They are much better than any drug store or other more expensive lip plumper that I have tried. This color pallet is perfect for anyone.
"Joy" alone is worth the price!
I stumbled onto this foursome over Christmas and split the tubes with a friend. I ended up with Joy (apple red) and the gold shimmer. Love them both, but "Joy" is the absolute best color! And the lip gloss itself is great; yes a little "tacky," but it really stays. I'm ordering the foursome now just to get "Joy." I'm trying the full size also in Candi hoping it's a reasonable match. Like so many other reviewers, I've tried a lot of products, but I'm hooked on Buxom. PLEASE make "Joy" in the regular, large size! The shimmer and glitter is fabulous!
Love the colors, price is great. Simply fabulous. I'm about to run out so I plan to buy more-save them for next winter.
Love these colors Leslie!
As for all the other Buxom colors I have, these are a great little set, and Buxom glosses are all I wear. I got 2 sets, since they are a seasonal collection of colors. I wear Buxom generally alone and these light colors work well. With Leslie's last visit I ordered the larger sized Pixie and Hope too. My sister Andrea in Hibbing MN is addicted to them! I think you like the effect and tingling feel of them or you don't, and I love them! These are not too glittery. Leslie has offered some that do have alot of glitter in them, but these have a more subtle shine. At any given time I probably have 6-8 Buxoms in my purse!
Love Buxom Glosses...Just Not These...
Overall, I love BE's Buxom lip glosses, but I didn't care for the colors in this set. I like to wear glosses alone (no lipstick underneath) and the light colors were too light to do that. The red was too dark for me (I'm light skinned, brown hair/blue eyes). I liked the coppery shade but that was it. I couldn't justify the cost for a small size of one color. They might work for others, just not me. :(
ummm..ok i guess
for me, this set gets an average rating. I like the tawny shade a lot on it's own. The cherry red is suitable for everyone. I can use the silver opal over other lippies, but it is not something I really need. Disappointed with the gold because I didn't think it was warm enough and definitely not enough gold in it. If I use it over another lipstick, there is no change at all...no golden lift what-so-ever.
I do think it is worth buying if you have never tried the buxoms because of the nice formulation and with the reasonable pricetag, the risk is minimal. Would I buy this set again? no.
I have these lip colors and love them, get compliments ALL the time when I am wearing them! The color lasts forever and is very flattering to all skin tones. I like the cool feeling when I am wearing it too! However, I am very disappointed to see the price here on QVC is MORE than in my local store. Plus, when you add the shipping cost, its even more. I always thought that QVC had the best prices on their products....guess I was mistaken!
