Bare Escentuals Buxom Babes Lip Tints



Sephora is super busy updating it's site with new little bits and bobs for Summer. I ran across this kit from Bare Escentuals while browsing around. This particular kit contains four lip plumping lipglosses for $28 USD.

First of all I'd like to be the first one to say I find the packaging completely degrading and the name. Seriously this looks like pr0n. Buxom Babes? Bikini clad chicks on the packaging? Who are we trying to sell this to anyway?

I'm all for cute packaging but for some reason this deeply disturbs me. Could be because I'm in a bad mood!

Sorry but I'll have to expose you to my ranting about Bare Escentuals pricing again! As you may know from my previous posts I'm quite appalled at the prices of Bare Escentuals kits lately and this particular peeves me. No I don't want 4 MINI glosses for $28 dollars thanks very much! Lipglosses that in fact suck formula wise anyway!

Seriously, have you tried the original Buxom Lips? It stinks.

Ok rant over.

BE got my vote for NO on this particular kit.

Love it?

Hate it?

Rave or Rant with the Muse! Comment box is open!

these particular glosses aren't too fab :P These are mini not full size :(

I dunno if it's the formula, the sponge, or the tube but it's impossible to get the product to look right on!

can't stand 'em!

I have about 3-4 colors I got off E-bay for a pretty sweet price and I'm thankful I didn't pay full price :P

I hate BE - the mineral foundation actually burned my face! Granted I have senstive skin but still!
I've since started using Lilylolo mineral foundation and blushers which my skin LOVES and they are £12 instead of £24 :)
