Are we over that Holographic vibe yet? I think we can eek it our for the rest of the summer ya know. There is something so pretty about multi-tone, shimmering shades that change to a hue of different colours as you move or hit different lights.
BUXOM Cosmetics have recently launched a festival-ready range of summer products including these limited edition Holographic Full-On Plumping Lip Polish Top Coats and they are absolutely stunning.
These lip glosses / topper come in 8 shades (I *believe* only these 4 available in the UK) and have an instant lip-plumping effect with a good dose of menthol for that cooling and tingling sensation. Vitamins A & E protect and nourish the lips and these glosses are super high shine in finish. What I like about these formulas is that they don’t contain any chunky or gritty glitter but the shimmer comes from prismatic crushed pearl.
Wear them solo for a subtle, ethereal shine to the lips or over your favourite lip colour to enhance and add dimension.
The applicator is a slightly odd-looking silicone paddle wand, which I have actually never seen before but it applies the product really well and makes layering it up really quick on top of other lip shades. I always find toppers work better over the top of a matte shade for a longer wear. I have the 4 shades, swatched below for your perusal, worn solo and then worn over the top of some of my favourite matte shades so you can see the finish they give. My favourite shade at the moment is ‘Selena’ which is a soft pearlescent pink.
BUXOM are known for their amazing lip glosses and these are no different in texture and quality, if you aren’t vibing off the multi-faceted tones then definitely have a look into their original formulas as they are some of the best on the market, hands down.
These are available on Feel Unique, Cult Beauty & Debenhams, priced at £15 for 4ml. Pssst I’ve just seen they are currently 20% off on Feel Unique.
