Review: Buxom Full Bodied Lipstick in Scoundrel

I have to be honest, I've never been interested in trying any Buxom products. In my mind the brand was well-known for their plumping lip glosses and I'm not a fan of lip plumping products. What eventually changed my mind and convinced me to purchase this Buxom Full Bodied Lipstick ($21) in  Scoundrel was one of my girlfriends. She was wearing the lipstick in a different shade while we were shopping in Sephora and of course the makeup junkie in me had to buy one for myself. It also didn't help that we were in a Sephora and I can never walk out of that store without purchasing something. I ended up picking up the shade Scoundrel because a girl can never have too many red lipsticks, right?

The lipstick comes in an hourglass shaped mirrored tube that functions like a normal lipstick. I'm not the biggest fan of the packaging since it gets dirty very easily. Although the mirror exterior helps if you are trying to apply lipstick without a proper mirror on hand, it picks up fingerprints almost as easily as NARS' signature rubber black packaging.

Scoundrel is a blue red shade, which is flattering on all skin tones. The color stays vibrant for 4-6 hours and I can go through lunch without needing to touch-up. There is no feathering from the lipstick even without the use of a lip liner. But be wary of smudging some on your teeth and transferring the color onto other objects (i.e. cups, food, your boyfriend, etc.), since I've done both in my experience. 

I would purchase another Buxom Full Bodied Lipstick but I have to say that the shade range is rather limited. While there are pinks, reds and plums, each shade only has a few variations. However, the staying power and intense opacity definitely makes up for the lack of color selection. On top of that, the product is not drying so you don't need to worry about chapped lips and needing lip balm.

If I were to buy other shades of the Buxom Full Bodied Lipstick I'd most likely purchase Exhibitionist and/or Hooligan. Both shades were beautiful when I swatched them and I almost picked Exhibitionist over Scoundrel.

  1. I really like Menace! It looks like an amazing plum color! :)

  2. Ooh I like this shade! I need to try this out. I've been looking for some blue red lip products.

  3. Yeah, it's great! I'm on a hunt right now for a drugstore dupe because $21 is still pretty expensive!
