It's pretty ridiculous, but no matter how many lipsticks I have (and it is A LOT), getting a new one (or a new three) still can make my day. It's the fastest and easiest way to brighten up your face or change your look and let's face it, some of them are just flat out pretty. Really, really pretty. So when Buxom sent me a few shades of their new Wildly Whipped Lightweight Liquid Lipsticks, I was excited to try them. Partly because I tend to love liquid lipsticks, but also because they have a matte finish and well, matte finishes are having a moment right now and I am totally on the bandwagon. Overall, I love the texture of them and the shades are gorgeous - really pigmented and colorful - so I'm really digging that aspect of them. And the matte finish is very 2016. I also don't find that it dries out my lips at all, which can sometimes be a problem with matte products. My one issue with the three shades I tried is that the color seems to fade quicker than a lot of my other lipsticks. For me, with the ridiculous amount of colors in my stash, I don't really mind that much because reapplying is a cinch and I'm not worried about running out, but at $21 each, I can see how that might be a little annoying for someone who's splurging to buy one. I haven't tried layering them over anything, but that might help to solve this problem a little bit. All in all though, another score for Buxom!
