Buxom Look All You Want Set “Xmas” Blog|December 23

buxomlook10

Let’s face it, Gifts Exchanges are often not the best. To me they are often a burden that, if I could avoid it, I would. That being said, I had just one this year and of course, everybody seems to know that I have an obvious eyeshadow palette addiction (which is true!!!). So I was not surprised to receive this Buxom Look All You Want set. Was I happy ? Hummmm! Not really (Sorry Ann)!! Buxom makes the best lip glosses ever and I love the brand so very much but this palette (not the actual casing however, this one is STUNNING) contains eyeshadows that I find totally not appealing. I don’t know but something  was just not right: the range of colors is odd to me and the Christmas theme is weirdly too obvious in an unflattering way. So again not very happy. I felt I just received the Ugly Christmas sweater in a form of a palette. I may not be the only one to have pass on this set since it’s been in the sale section on Sephora’s website (29$Us & 37$CND) and in-store for a while now.

What it is:
An alluring eye set with six eye shadows, a waterproof eyeliner, and a mini mascara.

What it does:
This eye collection lets you create your own bold looks. Featuring a limited-edition Buxom® Eyeshadow Bar palette, with four new shades, it lets you play up your looks for every occasion. With six primer-infused, powerfully pigmented eye shadows in matte, sparkling, and metallic textures, a mascara for outrageous volume and bold lashes, and a waterproof eyeliner, this giftable set is perfect for endless, expressive looks.

This set contains:
– 6 x 0.05 oz Buxom Eyeshadow in Opal Opulence (iridescent ice), Sequin Sparkle (sparkling pewter), Top Shelf (shimmering plum), Penthouse (metallic evergreen), Style Icon (metallic taupe), Gimme Gorgeous (matte camel)
– 0.2 oz Buxom Lash Mascara in Blackest Black (mini size)
– 0.04 oz Hold the Line™ Waterproof Eyeliner in Call Me (matte black)

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens

At least, I had a small consolation because I LOVE the full-size Buxom waterproof liner included (17$US & 20$CND) in Call Me (dark matte black) and the Deluxe size Lash Mascara that is very good too.

Onto the actual palette: like I previously said the packaging is really cute. It mimics their other recent refillable eyeshadow palettes. Out of the 6 colors, 4 are Limited Edition (Opal Opulence, Sequin Sparkle, Top Shelf & Penthouse), the remaining two Style Icon & Gimme Gorgeous are in their permanent collection.

Ingrid dammit get to the point!!! As you may or may not know, starting December 25 (’til January 1st) Sephora is having their EXTRA20 (20% off) on all the items in their sale section (Online only). GRAB IT! I was so wrong about this palette. It is FABULOUS. Each eyeshadow is perfect, buttery, pigmented, the range is strange but uniquely, these are so gooooood. The price is ridiculous considering what you get. Remember that each Eyeshadow Bar Single is 12$US (15$CND). Since you know I love deals, I did the math for you: For my US readers, this a 101$ value that you will pay 23,20$US (+ the added Ebates of minimum 4%). DO I HAVE TO SAY MORE?!?

Since talking about Buxom, have you seen this new  ALL MATTE beauty ?!!

  1. I was about to write, if you don’t want it, I can take it off your hands lol! But then I saw the rest of your review. I’m glad you ended up liking it. It’s a beautiful palette! This is the first time I’m hearing about the matte palette. Is it out yet? It looks stunning!

    1. The worst part is that it’s totally you with the bunny slippers 😛 (I thought this picture was so adorable) Since Buxom is cruelty-free, I think you should buy this set at this tiny price !!! Tomorrow you are #1 & Stashy #3 😀 (bahahah!)

  2. Aww as I was reading, I’m like this Ingrid is so ungrateful! 😮 This palette looks great – what is she talking about? As you know, I love the idea of a customizable palette! Personally, I think Sequin Sparkle and Top Shelf look AMAZING!!! I’m so glad you were proven WRONG about the colours in this palette – sometimes receiving a present that’s outside of your comfort zone exposes you to things that you end up liking!
    Am I hoola hoop girl today? 😉
