Buxom Stay There in Saint Bernard and Laura Does London: A Look and Swatches

I'm so excited toady--I got a bunch of new stuff and had to try as much of it as possible! So I did some comparison swatches of the Buxom Laura Does London collection and I swatched Buxom Stay there in Saint Bernard.

I only got one stay there shadow because I don't really wear cream shadows all that often. But my first impression is that I will be wearing the buxom shadow a lot! It has a nice mousse texture that blends easily. It is not really sparkly but it does have some sparkle. Saint Bernard is a beautiful green/blue. It definitly registers more green than blue. It is bright but dark enough to wear as a crease colour. I applied it with my finger in the swatch, then when I did my eyes I used a synthetic brush on one eye and a natural hair brush on the other. The colour payoff was very similar and it washed out of both brushes easily. If I were going to use it in the crease or if I wanted a thinner layer of colour I would use the natural hair brush. Overall my first impression of Stay There is very positive.

Here are the brushes I used and a few pictures of Saint Bernard:

I also got the Laura Does London collection. The kit has a Buxom Lipstick in London and a Buxom Gloss in Laura. London is very pale, pearly, neutral to cool pink. Laura is hot pink and it has a creamy look too it. So while it is not a full coverage buxom it is more opaque than many of the other sheer buxoms. Over London it looks very opaque. I love both colours. I did some comparison swatches with other buxoms people have suggested these are similar to.
