Buxom Stay There in Shih Tzu, Chihuahua, and Schnauzer

As you might know from my earlier posts about the Buxom Stay There shadows I'm a fan. I decided to get a few more colours during the sephora F&F sale.

I think you get really nice colour payoff from these shadows. They are very blendable, light and play well with BE mineral shadows. I wear primer under them and have had no trouble with creaseing or fading. I have been using the ELF eye shadow brush or a synthetic paint brush to apply them and both work really well.

I like the Stay There shadows because you could wear them alone with a little eye liner and be done. Or in some cases with no eye liner and just mascara. So they are perfect for traveling or when you are in a hurry. In addition you can use them as the base to build more complex looks.

So here are some swatches and looks with each of my new additons.

Shih Tzu and Chihuahua


When you pack it on Schnauzer looks more purple (like I did in the lower swatch), but when you smudge it out you can really see the plum tones (like I did in the top swatch).

All the Buxom Stay There shadows I own:

I added High Shine Frost because it is similar to Chihuahua and some might want to compare them. I think Chihuahua is less bright than Frost and you can make it very sheer. Chihuahua also has a grey undertone that is more noticable on the eye. I like them both.
