Buxom Time to Shine - Review

I purchased this set back in October as part of my MAC & Sephora Haul. I have been interested in trying the Buxom lip products (especially the Lip Creams) but not being a big fan of lip gloss I kept resisting. That is until I saw this set with six mini lip glosses in three different formulas.  

The set includes two lip glosses from these formulas sheer, diamonds and cream. 

These glosses have an interesting scent and feel on the lips. They have a very sweet vanilla smell to them when first applied. I don't notice it when on the lips though. As these are a plumping lip gloss they have a tingling slightly cold feeling on the lips when first applied. These are slightly sticky but not uncomfortably so, just sticky enough to make them last well on the lips. 

All the lip glosses are 2ml in size and have a doe foot applicator. 

Big & Healthy Lip Polish SHEER

Tingle, plump & shine with sheer, shimmering gloss. 

The perfect everyday, plumping lip gloss. More shimmer based than glitter. Very smooth on the lips and only a little sticky. Colour is quite sheer on the lips. 

  • Sugar - beige nude 
  • Katie - pale, peachy pink

Big & Healthy Lip Polish DIAMOND

Tingle, plump & shine with sheer, sparkling gloss. 

These are massively packed with glitter! Not my type of everyday gloss but would look great on a night out. I was surprised by how smooth these felt on the lips. The glitter was not gritty like I expected. 

  • Gina - bright, red-pink
  • April - pale pink

Big & Healthy Lip Cream

Tingle, plump & shine with creamy, glass-smooth gloss.

These are my favourites. I love the creamy, opaque look these gives the lips. I LOVE the White Russian shade - it is a perfect nude for me. I plan on buying some full sized shades of this version in the future.

  • Berry Blast - bright fuchsia-pink
  • White Russian - peach-nude

I am really pleased I purchased this set. The lip glosses are gorgeous and there is a great variety of wearable shades and finishes. I highly recommend, if like me you are new to the Buxom brand. 

I purchased my set from Sephora for US$29.00 but don't despair Australian ladies! It can be purchased from BeautyBay for around AU$36.00 with free shipping. 

Have you tried any products from Buxom? What do you recommend?


  1. I love the idea of three different finishes in the pack - this would make an excellent gift for any lip gloss fan!

    1. Or an excellent gift to yourself just because.. Haha

  2. Thanks so much for your review :) I have been looking at this set online lately and was wondering what it was like, this was really helpful!

  3. What a fantastic set. I love the look of White Russian, that might just have to be my first Buxom purchase.
