Buxom Lip Tarnish: Wardrobe Malfunction and Caught on Tape

I finally got my Buxom Lip Tarnish!! I have been wanting to try these since I first heard about them. I bought two, Wardrobe Malfunction (light pink) and Caught on Tape (darker pink). I was excited to try these because I thought they might be similar to Tarte’s Lipsurgence lip stains and they are to some degree. Tarte’s original lipsurgence product is very glossy in texture. I really like that formula. The Buxom Lip tarnish does not have the very glossy texture that the Tarte product has, instead it is more like a thick lip balm (think Burt’s bees lip balm). The Lip Tarnish does have a somewhat glossy appearance, more than a lipstick does. I think the lip tarnish applies smoothly and looks good on. It has a slight buxom tingle but not as strong as the buxom gloss. Caught on Tape is a vibrant pink that might be too much for some people but once you blot it looks more natural. Wardrobe Malfunction is a light pink and if you just apply it once it is sheer, I applied it 3 times for the pictures below.

The lip tarnish is supposed to be a stain. If you are expecting it to last all day looking like it did when you first applied it, you will be disappointed. However, it looked exactly like when I applied it for a few hours with a little drinking (sipping water) but after lunch it had faded a bit. I did have colour on my lips all day, it never completely disappeared, it just became much lighter by the end of the day. I like the fact that it left some colour on my lips all day.

As of now I like the lip tarnish and if they expand the colour selection I will probably buy a few more. I’m not sure I like it more than the buxom lipstick. I do love that it has a slight glossy-ness. I do think they need to make more colours. I think they leave more colour on my lips than the Tarte lipsurgence and I like that. Overall I like it so far but I’m not in love yet.

In the first picture I'm basically wearing the Bare Escentuals Sweet Escape Kit (nouveau, exotic tara, Buxom mascara and Eva buxom) minus the Eva buxom.
