This Summer is definitely a season to discover some new lipsticks, especially some new lipstick trends. One of the most beautiful lip products I discovered recently is the Buxom Pillowpout Creamy Plumping Lip Powder ($22). It isn’t your typical or conventional kind of lip product and it’s not really a lipstick. Many of us may have heard of lip powders before although I, myself is barely familiar with them. So, I think that it’s about time that we talk about this amazing gem of a lip product especially now with the release of the new Buxom Pillowpout Lip Powder.
I didn’t quite know what to expect from this product when I first learned about it. I have never tried any Lip Powders before even though I’ve read that Sephora has one and I think Lorac released one as well. I just never really paid that much attention, that is, until, I finally tried this Buxom Pillowpout and I’m just utterly in love. If you’re wondering what this product is all about or what is a Lip Powder anyway? Well, it’s definitely a new lip product trend that I think first started in Korea, and it’s just now slowly making waves to us here in the West. It’s not exactly like applying powder to the lips, but its effect looks blotted, matte or semi-matte, and a bit powdery on the lips. Think of it as a lip stain – perfect for creating that popsicle or ombre lips. The kind that makes every lip colors wearable due to its toned-down texture that looks more natural and easy on the lips.
With this Buxom Pillowpout Creamy Plumping Lip Powder, you not only get vivid rich colors that look semi-matte on the lips, you will also notice that it feels really lightweight and it has that plumping tingly feel. It doesn’t have any annoying scent and it’s pretty much easy to apply. You just have to swipe the sponge-tip applicator on the lips (which is pretty accurate) and you’re good to go. One coat is enough to get that ombre lip effect or two coats for that full-on lip coverage. You can always dab or twist the cap back on the sponge to get more products, it’s easy peasy.
So Spicy – muted pumpkin spice
Darling Dolly – mauve pink
Unlike most matte liquid lipsticks, this Pillowpout Lip Powder never feels tight, uncomfortable, or dry. It also doesn’t seem to emphasize the lip lines that much and it just feels like nothing on the lips. I didn’t even have to exfoliate or prep my lips prior to applying this lip product and my lips did not lose any moisture all throughout my usage. Another thing I wanna point out is the fact that it has very very minimal transfer, it’s pretty much smudge-proof and it lasts a really long time, about 6-8 hours on me, and it leaves a nice stain on the lips even after eating, which is good news because then I don’t have to reapply that much.
There are a lot of beautiful shades from this lineup and they’re all so pretty. There’s definitely a shade for everyone and with a natural texture like a lip powder, I bet that almost all the shades from this Buxom Pillowpout will be very wearable. Speaking of wearable Buxom shades, I am so glad that Buxom added another great lip product line with their newest Lip Powders since I have always been a big fan of their lip products. It all started with their Buxom Wildly Whipped Lightweight Lipstick ($21) (further reviewed HERE) which I still use up to this day and I absolutely love the shades of this lipstick and of course the creamy and comfortable semi-matte formula that it has. For me, Buxom seems to always nail it when it comes to selecting the colors for their lip products.
Bottom line, if you’re looking for that innovative and reliable lip product that delivers rich color while having that natural lip stain effect, you won’t be disappointed with this Buxom Pillowpout Creamy Plumping Lip Powder. It is comfortable, lightweight, non-drying, non-smudging, and it lasts a long time. It’s definitely the most exciting lip product I’ve tried this Summer.
