Buxom Big & Healthy lip plumping lipsticks and lip glosses

buxom lipstickI am happy to present to you my latest discovery – I have found some amazing goodies in funky packages with colours to suit every one complete with tingling sensations for plumped soft moistorised lips!

Their slogan is “Buxom always kisses on the first date” – well, I don’t know about that, I am a bit old fashioned you see. But, one thing I know for sure, you would definitely want to kiss those lips and not just on the first date. They’re packed with antioxidant vitamins A and E that make your lips truly irresistable, voluptious, soft, smooth and so kissable…

OK, a bit more about these lipsticks that are actually lipliners as well. They last all day long but don’t dry your lips out and feel like a velvety lip balm! How amazing is that? And the packaging is just great – it doesn’t look like any old lipstick – it looks like a really cool pen from outer space and the colours are named after cities! I am a proud owner of Las Vegas which is – guess? – a lovely candy pink! Barcelona is a scarlet apple – how yummy is that? And San Francisco, a dusty mauve. I did look for London as well, but it wasn’t anywhere to be seen, so I wondered whether they make it and apparently they do, I saw it on their website, I guess I just wasn’t lucky.


Normally I am not a fan of bright colours on my lips, in fact I’m scared of colours. Can you imagine? They just magically transformed me! I want all those colours. You won’t be disappointed!

buxom lip glossesFor those who prefer lip glosses they are just as good. So you can either wear those with Buxom lipstics for an extra umph and plump or just on their own. They are long lasting as well as plumping with a good colour pigment. The lip glosses each have girl’s names – mine is called Betty.

And you can see the colours with pictures of girls in seductive little numbers like they just stepped out of Moulin Rouge or Burlesque. I even wondered whether I should choose one because I liked the girl’s name rather than the colour of the lipgloss lol.

And yeah the prices, both the lipstics and the lipglosses cost $18 which is about £12?

Chanel Le Vernis, Blue Satin

Chanel Le Vernis, Blue SatinThis dark blue nail varnish looks almost black and is not for everyone. There are quite a few other blue nail varnishes on the market at the moment but, for me, this is spot on. It’s not one of those light or pearly blues as it has depth, richness and density. Although it’s edgy and urban it’s still classic and chic. It looks great on well-manicured, short nails and could go well both with an evening dress or a pair of jeans. It’s a spring/summer must-have. Don’t forget to apply a top coat.

So, add brilliance to your fingertips with colours from the runways of Paris. A state-of-the-art formula strengthens and moisturises your nails. It comes in a unique patented non-spill bottle with wiping action for easy application.

Limited edition make-up set by Emilio Pucci from Guerlain

Emilio Pucci pearls

This set is attractively packaged with Emilio Pucci‘s trademark gorgeous swirls. Firstly, we have Météorites Pearls. Guerlain‘s famous pearls now in different shades which glow, brighten and freshen your appearance.

The Eye-Set has four eye-shadows, two Kohl-liner pencils and a lengthening and curving mascara. It is perfect to take on a summer trip as they are exactly the colours you need for your fresh summer look.

Finally there are the sparkling lip glosses and radiant blush. The blush has to be applied with fingers as it is a mousse and is a disappointment because glitter inevitably ends up sticking to your fingers. The glosses are pink, peach, azur blue and gold. I like the pink and peach with a bit of frost in them. I’m not so keen on the gold and blue!

But either the Eye-Set or the Météorites Pearls are a “must-have” for this summer.

Laura Mercier’s Baby Lips

Laura Mercier's Baby LipsIf you are a fan of lipsticks over lip gloss or both and you like natural colours, Baby Lips is for you. It will suit any hair colour.

It looks dark when rolled out of the stick but when put on the lips it looks amazing and natural. Natural colours like these work well especially in the summer. You get the benefit from the lipstick while no one will be sure if you’re wearing any.

Not really cheap but not expensive at £16.

Plump your lips

Freeze 24•7's plump lips ice sticksFreeze 24•7‘s Plump lips ice sticks. I love these. I love the whole palette of colours from light pink to darker. The best one I tried was the plum (furthest right in the picture). I’m not a fan of dark colours but this one is the best. It looks surprisingly natural when applied. And even if you don’t like any of these colours there is a clear option.

They smell nice, taste nice and leave your lips feeling nice and cool.
