Buxom PillowPout Plumping Lip Powder Review
I’m a HUGE Buxom lip product fan. Their Plumping LipLiners are my go to, and still fall back on some of their former matte lippies that they discontinued. Their latest innovation PillowPout Plumping Lip Powder, excited me since I’ve put eyeshadow on my lips before and love that semi-matte sheen finish. An old makeup artists trick was to use eyeshadow on lips, generally for editorial photography for that visually stunning effect. Unfortunately, it’s not actually practical for longwear since eyeshadow on lips doesn’t really last, and past those first few photos it can give a dry, cracky, effect on lips. That said the eyeshadow trend led to several lip powders launching in the last year but most of them came in compacts and require a brush to apply. Buxom’s applicator and idea was much more intriguing.
