Glitz + glam: Buxom Glitz and Groove holiday 2020 collection

When it comes to lipglosses, Buxom is the first brand that comes to mind.

I’ve been a fan of Buxom’s products for a while now and although their glosses are bomb, they powder products are also really fab (I’ve been using their bronzer from the Staycation Vibes collection a lot lately).

In case you aren’t familiar with Buxom, you can find it at various retailers, including Shoppers Drug Mart and Sephora, and the price point is actually quite reasonable for a more higher-end brand.

I’ve always enjoyed their holiday releases, and this year is no different. The Buxom Glitz and Groove holiday collection is perfect for this season since it brings a lot of sparkle.  You may not have a chance to wear that sparkly dress that you bought on sale during Black Friday, but you can easily incorporate some glitz into your makeup look.

Although there are numerous gloss sets this season (always a good idea, however, I will say that these tend to be on the stickier side, so they aren’t the most mask friendly), I really love the Make It a Double Xtrovert Mascara Kit (C$33).  This kit comes with two of their full-size Xtrovert Mascara (one typically retails for C$28, so this is a steal).

The Xtrovert mascara is a volumizing and buildable mascara that has a pretty unique brush to give volume, lift, and length.  The brush features an innovative X shape, which helps lashes get plump after one coat.  The brush also has reservoirs that hold the optimal amount of product and won’t smudge or flake as you wear it.

This was my first time trying out their mascara and I was pleasantly surprised by how my lashes looked. I would say my lashes looked longer, darker, and thicker, which is basically all you need from a mascara.

Aside from the mascara set, there are a number of gloss kits available, which always make great gift ideas (especially for teens).  The brand also sent over a couple shades from their new Babes Who Brunch Full-On Lip Plumping Lip Cream collection, which came out earlier this year as well.

This collection contains four new brunch-inspired shades in their iconic Full-On Lip Plumping range.  These lip products tingle the lips, making them appear larger. They also have a pleasant minty scent to them, so I always feel like my breathe is fresh when I apply them.

Buxom sent over two of the four shades, Irish Coffee, a nude; and Frose, a baby pink, and both of these could not scream Shayna more (they are shades I gravitate to).  They feature a cream finish with some major shine, which is something nice and different from my usual sparkly gloss.

I haven’t had a chance to fully dive into these and wear them a ton yet, but I love the shades and finish and I can’t wait for COVID to be done so I can start wearing lip products again and not have that feeling of them sticking to my mask.

I really love what Buxom has to offer this season, and like I said, if you are looking for something in the more low- to mid-range price point, then the brand has a ton to offer (plus the packaging is sparkly, so it totally ups the holiday factor!).

Will you be asking for anything from Buxom this holiday season?
