I'm a Buxom Babe

I've mentioned before that I love Buxom Lips by Bare Escentuals. It's a lip gloss/lip plumper.

But in the winter, I need something more substantial on my lips. I'm a chapstick whore as it is.
So enter the new Buxom Big and Healthy Lip Stick ($18 at Sephora):
It's slim so it acts as a liner too.

I tend to gravitate towards pinky chocolate shades:
So the Brooklyn shade (above) was perfect for me.

Now, I use the Brooklyn Lip Stick and then the Brooklyn Lip Gloss on top!

Plus, I love all the names they use for the different Buxom shades: There's Lacey and Betty and Ginger and Celeste. Looking for a good protagonist name? Go there :D

You know who else has great names? Pottery Barn, for their furniture sets.

I'm a chapstick whore as well. That and this new avocado oil for my cuticles/nails I got from Sally's. I've never heard of Buxom Lips. Love me some new make-up!

I love to buy lip glosses, but never actually wear them. In the winter, I stick to Blistex or a dab of Vicks Vapor Rub (believe it or not! It works!!!)

Just finished coating my lips with chap sticks! Don't touch it any other time then the winter but I have it in my desk and purse so I am covered wherever! Never tried the lip stick but I would be willing.

Thanks for the info on chap sticks. I usually buy them, then forget them when I need them! Need to start making wrist notes! Thanks for sharing.

I really love the fun names that some companies come up with...like Ikea, for example...I can't even pronounce those - but so fun!!

I am a devout BE user and I've always wondered about the Buxom lip stuff. I'm going to try it - got a giftcard for my birthday that's burning a hole in my wallet right now!
