Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Polish «Zena»: Swatches & Review
I was asked which product I’ve used for lips in my recent Burberry blush review, so I decided to write a short review for it. It was Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Polish and I’ve got it in small set of Beare Escentuals stuff which came to me as reward for my bonus points in Sephora VIB program.
I usually have 1-2 shades of this lip polish because it does really work for your lips to look fuller:
+ glassy finish and fine shimmer makes you lips look bigger;
+ no taste, but sweet, sugar scent;
+ lasts for at least 5 hours (even lighter shades);
+ gives you lips some care if you use it regularly;
? menthol and cooling sensation on you lips is rather questionable point, especially in winter when you don’t want to feel additional cold, though it says that it has something to do with the lip volume (increase blood circulation);
— some shades tend to gather in lip lines, which is definitely bad.
Zena — is a pale-pink shade with fine pearlized shimmer and glassy, very reflecting finish. It really does make your lips fuller, but particularly this shade gather in lip lines as I’ve already mentioned.

Limited Edition? Yes *i’ve got this shade early this year and now I don’t see it in stock. However there’s also few shades in pale pink available either in set or in primary line of Buxom lip polishes.
Final Thoughts: I generally like Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Polish, because it makes my lips look bigger and it gives some lip care. These polishes has nice, wearable colors and sweet sugar scent. However you may mot like the cooling feeling of menthol. Particular shades tend to gather in lip lines after a while.
