Rated 3.6 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Great product!
I loved this product so much that as soon as I received my shipment I got online to buy 2 more. I see a lot of reviews saying it's "not true to color" or it turned their lips a certain color but the description clearly says " A unique reactor works with your individual PH level to transform your lips into your most flattering custom shade of pink." I actually loved the shade of pink it turned my lips because I wasn't expecting the pink you see on the applicator. This product gives a slight tingle sensation without being overbearing. I always like to have something on my lips so this is a great alternative to lipstick or chap stick and gives the right amount of slight pigment while looking natural.
Most Helpful Critical Review Just ok - color can be weird.
I love the Buxom line of product and was really excited to try this. First of all, it's adorable.
The pink tube color and packaging is so cute. It's like a giant tube of chap stick.
It's moisturizing and leaves a slight tingly feel. At first I liked the color it left but at times when I put it on it turns my lips a bright, 80's hot pink. Not cute. I expected it to be more subtle than that - a natural pink that plays off your natural coloring.

I love the product, always a fan of Buxom. But when I got home I noticed the box was ripped and sure enough the lip balm has been touched by someone. I just wiped it and use it the same night, but I should have returned it, wasn't thinking right at that moment. Especially during this Covid time.
Favorite Lip Product Ever
Liv from MA
I work at Ulta and have honestly never used a lip product quite as nice as this one. I have it in the shade Big O and it's such a beautiful 'your lips but better' kind of color. I always get compliments when I wear it! I'm getting the Nude shade too because I love it so much!
Christine R from MN
I use this multiple times a day and have one for my car and one in my morning routine. I like all three, but fave is the sheer pink. Any of these are soft and flattering and seriously give a plumped look for an hour or so.
LOVE this product!
Laura from Chicago
I bought the sheer pink color a few years ago and it has been a stable in my routine ever since; I've gone through several tubes. The tingling components no longer have any effect on my lips but I still love it for the color and chapstick. The sheer pink color is just enough. I purchased one of the new colors tonight and love it too!
Ashley from NH
The cooling is nice, the moisture is nonexistent, the color is not sheer, but the thing I can't get over is how it's so big and chonky and no one else has talked about this? This thing is huge and there's no way to apply it while looking like a normal human.

absolutely love this. will buy their plumper in all colors
The smell is bad
Brewersgirl86 from Waukesha, WI
It does what it says (for the most part—the cooling sensation is nice) but it smells very musty—maybe I got a bad batch? I wouldn't purchase again for the price point.
Awesome for all day, every day
Roc from Sunny, California
Loved how smooth this lip balm glides on. Has a good tingling effect. The color and pigmentation is subtle yet gives you just enough pop of color. Stays on, doesn't wear off fast.
Nosleep from San Diego
Gives my lips a pink glow and a very noticeable increase in size. Never have been complimented on my lips until I started using this and now friends and people I meet for first time compliment my full lips. Don't ever discontinue Big O color or product in general.
Yes, I would buy again if it came in more colors.

Special occasions/ date night. Wish had more colors.
BG from Little Rock, Ar
This is a great sheer but full coverage product. Moisturizing. The size is a little awkward. If it was more the size around of a nickel but it's like the size around of a quarter. Great plumping factor as well. Will use this summer on the boat and beach.
Tee from League City
This is no more than an expensive chapstick. No plumping at all, and tastes really bad if it gets in your mouth. It is however very moisturizing and has a soothing cooling sensation.
Shoe fanatic from Venice, FL
This feels great on my lips and I love the color, but I'm not seeing any dramatic plumping.
self-adjusting color, full-lip look w/o the sting
Jcm from California
I absolutely love this stuff. I've been using Big-O for 3 years and I can't stop buying it. Please be aware this does not really "plump" your lips with tingling or stinging ingredients. It gives more of a full and smooth APPEARANCE and has a slight cooling effect. Also, the colors will look different than in the tube depending on your skin and ph. This is the perfect balm for a bit of color when I'm not in the mood for a full lip stick regimen or intensity. I only wish they would come out with a cherry red tone!
I WOULD BUYTHIS AGAIn
Jeyani from Newark, New Jersey
this product is amazing, smooth on the lips and almost like a lip oil solution, for all the people saying this doesn't work and its a waste, it not, try using it 2-3 times a day and leave overnight. This process lets the product actually do its job and plums the lip correctly
I like it but doesn't plump
Jen from Oklahoma
I bought this and I liked the feel and color so I had my daughter try it out and she loved it so she went and bought it in two colors. Obviously we really like the product but I'm only giving it 4 stars because it doesn't plump like it leads you to believe.
Amber from NC
not a flattering color, didn't really plump anything, wasn't hydrating. plus the stick fell out of the tub the second time i opened it. disappointing because i love this brand.
Madeline from Tuscaloosa
I bought this product since I wanted something to plump my lips, and other Buxom plumping products had good reviews. However, I wanted more of a chapstick than a lipstick, so this seemed perfect. However, I've reapplied it 3 different times today and I haven't noticed any difference at all. I like that the color matches your personal pH though. I got the Big O color. Overall, would not recommend spending almost $20 on a product that doesn't do what it says it does.
It is a bit drying
Valerie I from NJ
Has a good color payoff, but can be a bit drying, but I like it.
I would buy this product again
Flawless Imperfection from Billings, Mt.
Great job on your lip products again, Buxom! I got it in the shade "inner glow" & even though it gave my lips a rosy glow rather than a more nude glow its still amazing! I definitely need the other 2 colors & PLEASE Buxom, make more colors!!
genyrose22 from Detroit, Mi
I love this lip balm. my lips are are pump without pain. I've in love with this lip balm more than the too faced injection lip gloss. worth the money
Kristen from Orlando FL
This is not worth the money.
Reacts with your ph so be prepared for it to look different
Britt from Connecticut
This doesn't look like the shade I bought at all, it turned my lips magenta pink.
Lacey from Columbia sc
On the website it seemed like this would turn out more nude on my lips, but it's actually more pink, mauve. I much prefer the Big O shade.
