Buxom Cosmetics Vividly Bold Matte Moisturizing Gel Lipstick REVIEW

          Matte lipsticks are all over the beauty shelves these days. They may not be the best nourishing lipsticks for the lips, but they do look good.  Buxom Cosmetics is known for their bold, sexy gel lipsticks. Their sinful cinnamon gel lipstick is one of them. This lipstick is highly pigmented and it is parabens, sulfates, and  phthalates free. The chocolaty scent is what drew me to it. It was like sniffing Hershey's kisses.

Product Description:

The bolder the better with this intensely pigmented one-stroke gel lipstick formula. Vivid, voluptuous colors play up a total bombshell look, but feel weightless and comfortable. Ultra-light and luscious, the wide range of shades come in moisturizing matte and satin finishes.

Staying power:

4-5 hours is what I get with this lipstick, with absolutely no eating, nor drinking. This is not something you get often with a moisturizing matte lipstick. The lipstick does fade after eating or drinking, but it leaves a stain behind. You will definitely need to reapply it after you eat or drink.


The best feature of the packaging is the magnetic closure. You don't have to worry about losing the cap in your purse.  The chunky tube is also very attractive. The word buxom is embossed on the tube and the name of the shade is printed on the bottom of the tube.  The tip of the lipstick is flat, which might be a problem for some people, but I love it.

This color is so intense. One swipe is all I needed to get an opaque look and matte finish. The formula is so light, but provides instant color. The best part is that there is a shade for every skin type. But swiping the lipstick on too much can create a chalky and unattractive look. Less is definitely more.

This lipstick does make the lip appear fuller. I think even my face looks fuller. LOL! I would be lying if I said it glides on the lips easily. But since the formula is so rich, I would not count that against it. The staying power is better than expected and the lipstick does feel light and delightful on the lips.

My rating:
4.5/5 stars
