As part of my Sephora VIB purchase (I say purchase but um, there were multiple purchases, so...yeah, that happened) I picked up the Buxom Shimmer & Shake Show-Stopping Collection of 15 Mini Full-On Lip Polishes & Creams. My introduction to Buxom lip products came by way of their lip cream, White Russian. I absolutely love everything about this lip cream and now keep one in my vanity as well as in my handbag AT ALL TIMES. It just goes beautifully with everything and it feels really good on the lips.
I have tested probably ten of the products included in the set so far and there isn't one I don't really like. I also love the mini size of these because you know, I may actually FINISH one of these at some point.
The packaging is totally over the top, but it would be a pretty fun gift for the lip gloss (or Buxom) lover in your life!

I included the photo above with flash because I wanted to give you a sense of how shimmery these five lip creams are. The one in the center, Amanda, is particularly pretty and adds a lovely shimmer to any lipstick.
For $59, I think this is a GREAT value. You get White Russian, five sparkly shimmery lip creams and then nine more great colors, all of which are very wearable and easy to layer!
