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.

Large Packaging, Very Little Product
BrinaRina from Flower Mound, TX
You only get about an inch of product.
The rest is just plastic packaging.
Not worth the price at all.
I LOVE BUXOM LIP BALMS!!
Hannah from California
I'M OBSESSED!!! I was fortunate to accidentally stumble upon these while checking out and I am so glad that I did. I have a tan to medium complexion and use both the Big O (light pink) and Inner Glow (Nude). I've been meaning to find a moisturizing lip balm that plumps at the same time so it's a win-win for me. It has a slight tingle but not over the top and it keeps my lips plumped for several hours. I definitely recommend!

Super cute color! Makes my lips pinky, minor tingling. It does plump!
Does nothing worthwhile
Nicole from Maryland
Doesn't plump my lips at all just makes them a very unnaturally hot pink color
The best everyday lip color
Jordy from Boston
Obsessed with this. Gives a natural boost of lip color, can use for everyday color. It is my favorite lip color and I have a LOT of lip products. A touch of buxom Erica or Kimberly gloss over it looks great too
Nice lip balm
LCYG19 from Colorado Springs, CO
I love the color, although once you put it on it does complement with your natural lip color so you won't see the actual lip color from this one. And also, it does tingle nor did I see plumping of the lips.
My favorite go to "chap stick"
Erin from Manalapan NJ
Absolutely love this product. I use day and night. I apply at night to wake up with a blush plump pout. I use through out the day to hydrate and have a nice pink tint. My favorite lip product I own.
Color is Hot Pink :(
Cortez the Killer from New York
Seems pretty moisturizing but as most plumping balms and glosses has a tingly weird effect. It's not terrible but I wouldn't wear it before going to eat bc it leaves a weird taste.
The worst part is the color though. I have fair skin with rose colored lips and it turns my lips bright neon pink and it is not a good look for a 40 year old! Lol, maybe I'll give it to my 10 year old nerve.
Does not work
Ayisha from Nc
I tried it and it did nothing to my lips
KimberlySueSue from Tulsa
It's moisturizing and comfortable to wear.
Chapped my lips
Los Angeles Liza from Los Angeles
Big O is a cute color, but after a few weeks of using it, I noticed my lips were chapping. Sure enough, after I stopped using it, my lips went back to normal. Thank goodness for additional help from Laneige lip mask, too.
Color is weird
Cayla from Texas
I bought the brownish nude and it immediately turns like Barbie pink.... ummm no. And it doesn't plum very well. No thanks...
Amber from MT
I love how these balms make my lips look naturally full and pretty. "O" looks clear in the tube, but develops into a soft rosy pink on your lips (don't ask me how; it's like magic!) Dolly Fever is a mauve but with enough rose/pink to look natural on me as well (I hate really purple mauves). I love both of these shades and prefer them over every other lippie I own for daily use, but for going out at night, I sometimes want something a little more dramatic.
5 STAR LIP!!!!!
E from Texas
Great lip product! Awesome hydration as well as adding plump to your lips. I wear anytime when I don't wear lipstick, gloss, or a lip stain!
Frantico from Oklahoma
The chemical smell of this made me feel like I was poisoning myself every time I put it on. Only used it twice - it's going back.
Great color for a nude lip
Alison from Minnesota
I love how this looks. My natural color is a little bit purplish. This takes my lip to a brownish pink nude color that I far prefer. My daughter says it looks like it is a natural lip with a little bit of lip liner. Moisturizing, but doesn't last long. Need to keep reapplying for moisture.
AtHomeMama2 from Indiana
I'm a lip balm fan and wear very minimal makeup but wanted something with a little color and this was exactly what I was looking for! I got the color Dolly Fever and was just enough color for me! Very hydrating formula and did not have to reapply for SEVERAL hours! My husband also liked this product because there was no color transfer with a smooch ;)
Susan from Florida
I love this lipstick, it goes on smoothe, feels really great on your lips, and I love the burn of the plumper
Alaina from Louisiana
love this lip balm so much!! got it in Big O and leaves my lips looking so cute and plump. only took off one star because i wish the moisture would last longer, but overall love it!!!
Cece from Pa
I love this lip balm and the color it gives my lips. I got dolly and it makes my lips a beautiful mauve pink color. It also does plump them pretty well. Only complaint is that you have to reapply a bit too often for my liking. It's also not a super moisturizing balm but I have others for that, I mainly wanted this for plumping and color and it works.
Not much of a plump.
Kell from Raleigh NC
Disappointed. Was hoping for a quality plumping balm, this mostly changed my lip color. I have used Boxom plumping glosses and was a big fan, have also used the Too Faced Lip plumping lip glosses. While I was not expecting an effect as dramatic as the Too Faced products but this was practically nothing.
Would have just used a lip tint if i wanted bright pink lips...
Seems like it has hydrating qualities.
I will buy this again
JP from WA
This balm looks sheer in the tube, but when you apply it, it leaves a beautiful sheer shade of pink! There is also a lovely tingling sensation. Not sure if it plumps the lips noticeably, but I gave it 5 stars for the color, ease of application and the pleasant tingly feeling! Not sticky and comes in a larger rounded case so it's super quick and easy to apply.
Not an invisible lip balm
CoLee from ND
I have this in Dolly and didn't care for the color, but liked the feel of it. So I ordered Big O thinking it was just a lip balm with no color. Put it on and didn't notice anything and I left for work....got to work and my lips are bright pink!! Ugh....not what I was going for!
