I’ve become a fan of lipsticks and glosses in pencil form since buying Quo’s and GOSH’s versions and I want more. Enter Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Sticks. I swatched them a while back and really fell for the lovely colours and smooth texture.
While it doesn’t look like your conventional lipstick, they are described as doing the job of one—and more, by providing the same creamy, pigmented colour while also giving the precision of a lip liner. Promised plumping abilities make the Lip Sticks a single product that does three different jobs. It also comes with its own sharpener so you can always have a sharp, well-defined tip to fill in your lips perfectly.
With the Lip Sticks’ huge colour range, it’s hard to name all my favourites without this post becoming an essay, but a few are Athens (coral), San Francisco (dusty mauve), and Barcelona (scarlet).
I’ve read some comments from people about certain shades not really matching with the hometown they know. What kind of shade would your city be? For me, Vancouver would be a your-lips-but-better kind of shade: unassuming, easy to wear but chic and makes you look put together, like a slightly muted rose with a hint of warmth.
