Purchased on a whim, as part of one of my first Sephora order, I got myself this Big & Healthy Lip Cream in Berry Blast. Upon further inspection of the range—of course, after making said purchase—I realize that I would have been happier with another color. Regardless, this is a great lip gloss/cream formula, especially if you are not a terribly big fan of glosses.
Product Description: “A creamy, pout-perfecting gloss for voluptuous lips. Tingle, plump, and shine your smile to super-sexy proportions. No shimmer, no glimmer—this creamy lip gloss delivers velvety-smooth color with intoxicating shine. The hyaluronic filling spheres infuse lips with moisture for creamy soft perfection and the look of a full, extra-kissable pout. Vitamins A and E help keep the skin supple, yet protected, and the fun tingling sensation reminds you the gloss is hard at work.
Wear alone or over lipstick to create the look of fuller, more voluptuous lips.
Formulated WITHOUT: Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates, GMOs, Triclosan.”
Berry Blast is a blindingly bright cool berry shade that swatches quite opaquely. On the lips, it’s not as intense, especially if you sheer it out, which is quite easy to do. There is a cooling, minty, tingly feeling that is probably what makes it a plumping gloss.
I quite like it and am looking to purchase it in a color I like better, once I run out.
Buxom is cruelty-free.
