Buxom Lips Bambi

Before my review I have a couple of things I'd like to say:First off, THANKS for following!  I appreciate that you guys read this and share your feedback with me :)
Second of all, if you haven't checked them out, some of the other blogs I follow are having some GREAT giveaways!  There's a section on my sidebar specifically for giveaways.

Anyway, onto the lips!

Buxom Lips from Bare Escentuals is by far my favorite lip gloss.  Ever.  I love the color selection and the fact that it's a lip plumper and make your lips a little cold and tingly!  And they all smell great.

Today I'm reviewing one of my favorites: Bambi.

Bambi is part of their Big & Healthy Lip Polish Collection.  It's not a "full color," and by that I mean it's definitely a sheer gloss rather than a lip stick.  It's a lovely pink shade with a peach undertone that looks good on just about everyone.
Nude lips, with no Bambi, = sad lips
Pink and sheer!

I put a lot on so it would show up in the picture, which is why it looks a little darker around the edges in the second gloss photo.  It usually doesn't spread like that if you only put on one-two coats.  It ends up looking like the first gloss photo most of the time.

It's a very even application and something you can wear everyday since it's light and not too far off from the normal lip color.  I definitely like how it feels more than I care about the color, though!  It doesn't go on too thick and the tingle is great.  It does a decent job of plumping your lips just a little so they looks natural and not swollen. 

One gloss (0.15 oz) costs around $18 on its own, which is a lot for a lip gloss.  However, Bare Escentuals often has 3 or 4 of these glosses in smaller sizes that you can by in a set which is usually a better deal.  They even come in a cute make up bag sometimes!  This is such a good idea especially if you have trouble committing to only one color!   

I hope you enjoyed and I strongly suggest you at least go to the store and sample one of these glosses because they are definitely my favorite!  Let me know if you've tried it and love it as much as I do!
