Buxom Summer Collection: A quick review

 A quick review of the Buxom Va-Va-Plump Shiny Liquid Lipstick, Big Tease Mascara and SexySmokey Kajal Powder Liner by Vancouver beauty blog Covet & Acquire.

What it is: A summer makeup collection from the brand Buxom that includes eye liners, lippies and mascaras each promising to amp up the colour in your beauty bag for the warm summer months.

Beauty bonus: The lip colours are very pigmented and comfortable to wear.

Beauty bummer: While the Kajal liner is very smooth to apply, we found it transferred A-LOT.

Overall: We have already given our thoughts on the Big Tease mascara — we are about to buy our second tube!

The darker plum shade available in this latest launch is more wearable for everyday than the teal, but we have to say, we like our lashes as black as night, however.

Kajal liners like the Sexy Smokey Kajal Powder Liner always lure us in with the promise of the undone look, but it never fails to read messy on us. From running under our eyes to transferring onto our lid creases, this was too high maintenance for us to keep up on throughout the day.

As for the Buxom Va-Va-Plump Shiny Liquid Lipstick, we're obsessed! The slick shades go on hyper-pigmented and give lips a subtle glossy shine. The colour wears well and is so high impact — we don't mind having to reapply throughout the day.

Would recommend: The lip colours and mascara, yes! The liners, probably not.
Price: From $24
