Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Cream in Cherry Flip

I'm not usually one to rave about a lip gloss, but lately, glosses have totally been floatin' my boat. I had tried the Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Cream before with White Russian when I received it as a point perk at Sephora, and loved the formula. So when I saw how friggin' gorgeous Cherry Flip was on miss Estee from Essie Button, I did not hesitate.


The Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Cream formula is gorgeous. It is not sticky, smells great, and the shade is gorgeous. I'm no lip gloss expert in any way, but this is a really good lip gloss in my book. It also claims to plump the lips upon application, and there is indeed a slight tingle. While I'm usually allergic to those types of lip plumpers, this lip gloss doesn't affect my lips negatively. I'd even say it's moisturizing - I don't feel like my lips are parched once it wears off. And it wears off as a light stain, which is a bonus in my opinion.


My lips aren't very pigmented, so this lip gloss is quite potent. I've been loving wearing it on casual days out, or for work. It's a bright lip gloss, but doesn't quite feel like the same commitment as a bright lipstick. It's definitely not something I already own in my collection, and I've really been enjoying trying something new. I think this will definitely become my go-to this spring!

If you're looking for a great gloss, that's not high maintenance, or very sticky, definitely give these Buxom Lip Cream a try! Cherry Flip is absolutely gorgeous on the lips, and Mudslide seems like it will be my next pick!

  1. This looks so beautiful on you! I usually am allergic to plumping lipgloss too so it's nice to know there's one out there that isn't irritating.

    1. I'm not the only one I see! Yeah, usually my lips get all swollen and then start peeling. The Clarins Lip Perfector did that to me years ago. It's hard to know what'll do it so I'm pretty grateful this gloss doesn't!

  3. I used to wear a lot of lipgloss, but in recent years I've moved to mostly lipstick. I might have to make an exception for this colour, though - it looks so much more beautiful on than it does in the package, and not at all the way I expected it would. It suits you just perfectly!

  4. I really like their gloss, but I'm having a hard time finding a good colour for me in the Lip Creams. It's probably a good thing anyway, since I really shouldn't be buying more lip products! PS: What eyeshadow are you wearing in this photo?

    1. Thanks Jessica! I think Cherry Flip would look amazing on you! And I'm sure Mudslide would look great on you too - who are we kidding, you can wear anything!

  9. I love this colour! It really suits you a lot. Do you know if they're still offering this as the perk? I think I have some points to use...

    1. No, I think the perk is over Alison :( Buxom is often offered as a perk though, so maybe wait for it a little.
