1. I have a PHD in lip plumper snobbery and very hard to please, tried them all. I had given up on Buxom because I felt the Buxom line I sampled in store, the colors were too orangey/ pinky red or too "purple" and the formula didnt feel as tingly, powerful as it was years ago.
On a whim, I ordered "Jasmine" full on plumping lip polish and am in absolute LOVE! It's a sheer, black cherry, not too dark and goes great with my light skin tone, blond hair and blue eyes. Best part: IT PLUMPS, doesn't dry out my lips and I have that peperminty, yummy feel I fell in love with over 10 years ago!! Yahtzee!!!!!
I was excited to get this on sale but was totally disappointed. I got Kir Royale, and I was expecting a full color lip gloss that was like The Gabby polish just without the glitter. What I got was this sheer gloss that was only a fraction of the color it was supposed to be.
The gloss itself is very thin for a buxom gloss, but still has that lovely buxom tingle that I love. When I applied the gloss it went on smooth like I expected, but when I looked closer, all the color had seeped into the fine lines on my lips (esp along the edge) and it kind of looked awful. I thought maybe it's because I applied too thin of a layer, so I applied another layer and all that did was accentuate the lines even more.
Maybe I got a defective one or an old one, but this is not a good product. When someone says lip cream, I expect a full color, liquid lipstick type of color, not a sheer gloss with color in it. Maybe my expectations are too high, but come on buxom, this is your same old gloss that's not mixed properly or doesn't have the correct amount of color added to it. With Gabby and Brandi, I never had the color seep directly into my fine lines and make me look older or like I don't know how to apply lip products. It literally looks like a clear gloss on my lips with this feathered crackled look of color.
I'm going to try it again later and see if it gets any better, if not then I'm gonna try another color or just return it. Good luck to those who bought this, I hope my experience isn't your own.
I'm attaching 2 pictures of a swatch on my hand to show you what happened, but the camera kind of blurs the extent of the color seeping into the lines because of the glossiness, and the color is slightly darker than in the pics (natural sunlight and all).

This does nothing to plump lips and it dries them out really badly. Won't be buying again.

It's called lip plumping lips but it doesn't plump my lips at all. I'm so disappointed!

I bought 2 different colors online and both were VERY different shade in-person. The Hot Toddy is super PINK compared to what it looks like online. Will be returning if it's not too difficult to do so from an online order. (read their return policy)

Love this gloss, gives a gorgoeus pop of color and high shine. I feel so confident wearing this. I keep it in my purse and use it frequently for a quick touch up before i get out of the car. The color Gabby is beautiful!!

This is absolutely my go-to lip gloss. I've only tried White Russian and Dolly since they are pricey, WR gives a nice shimmer on top and Dolly is closest to my natural lip color with a little extra pinky tones. I love the look, the cool tingle, amazing smell, and most importantly, it plumps without burning or irritating my skin. Ive tried Too Faced Lip Injection and it gave me a reaction since it was so strong. This is a wonderful staple lip gloss!!! 10000000% recommend!!!
Oli from Corona, Ca
I've been using this gloss for a couple of years now. It's my everyday wear and love that the color isn't too dark/bright. I can wear without lip liner for a more natural look or with lipliner to give it a pop!
from Valencia, CA
Love all of buxom lip glosses! Such a pretty color!
Sarah from MD & MN
I absolutely love this stuff. It's the one that I always want to have on hand. It makes every other product look terrible lol. My color (Brandi) is a PERFECT nude for me and my dumb big lips that I have trouble keeping healthy.
Rai from Chicago, IL
I love the color, the texture, the long lasting wear.. but if you accidentally get the taste in your mouth you'll regret it.

I've never used a lip gloss fully until it ran out until I bought this. I've kept track of it so well because it's expensive and it works great, so I was determined to not misplace it. The gloss stays on for hours and the cooling sensation feels nice and breezy. It feels heavy and sticky enough that I know it's there and the color coverage is enough that it hides my light scarring from anxiously picking at my lips for years. The rose julep color is my favorite pink—fresh, sweet, and classic looking.
Janet from North Carolina
I love how beautiful this shade is! IF you are looking for a blue red… this is it! Also the beat thing to me is it fades slowly and leaves a hint if color! I re-apply when needed, but I love it!!
Rachel from Massachusetts
Best Lip Gloss Ever!!! It makes my lips look so plump!! My favorite color is Brandi
KatBatty from Arkansas
I got a sample to try out and although the color is pretty and does provide a more creamy/color than a regular gloss would not recommend. The smell came off as minty and once applied did get a small tingle sensation no visible plumping but the smell was so overwhelming that it felt i was swallowing toothpaste so i had to remove immediately.
Island Girl from Texas
The only somewhat positive is that it has avthick glossy coat on your lips, as for the colors, dont think itll be a lipstick replacement, its a gloss, not meant for full colored lips. Its cool and slight tingle when applied. Your lips may feel like its plumping but its not. I see no difference at all. Dont waste your time and money.

I got a sample of this in another color. I liked it so much; I came in to buy a full size in a darker color. So happy.

Very creamy and stays on better than any other lip gloss.
Blondie from Bend, or
This is a nice gloss that goes on snooth and makes my lips look full and hydrated. Slight tingle. I knocked a star off for the applicator. Its small and hard. For this price point it should be much nicer. Also, mudslide is not as pigmented as i thought it would be. Its a very nice nuetral, but no color pop.
Cathy from Columbus

Jennifer from Newxyork
Great for any age
Julpes from Athens, GA
Do people get paid to write these reviews?!?! The color is very pretty, but it does not plump lips in any way, shape, or form.
Libby from Richmond, VA
I have the larger size in my makeup drawer. This little one goes in my purse.
Vivian from Lady Lake Florida
Best color ever
Krista from Portland
I purchased White Russian thinking it would be pink nude as described/pictured, but it was VERY pink on my lips. More of a baby pink than a neutral shade. Its also definitely a laquer, not a gloss (very thick sticky and pigmented) and I didnt notice much when it came to "plumping" ability… was pretty disappointed.
