Buxom Shimmer Shock Glitter Lip Sticks Review Swatches

The finish is beautiful, shiny like a gloss with tiny iridescent glitters! My photos don't do them any justice, glitters are always so difficult to photograph. I wish you could see how gorgeous the sparkly finish is, you will have to check them out in person!

One thing I really like about them is that I can't feel the glitters on my lips, the formula isn't gritty. They do feel thick and sticky though, so that's something to keep in mind if you usually don't like sticky lip products. I absolutely adore the colors and the sparkly look but I wish they were less tacky.

They last quite a long time for such a glossy formula, and because they are thicker than usual, they are less prone to feather around the lips. All the shades wore well for more than 5-6 hours, except Pyro and Volatile. These two nude shades lasted 3 hours on me.

Buxom Shimmer Shock Glitter Lip Sticks Review

Va-Va-Voltage and Aftershock are perfect, highly pigmented and gorgeous colors! I love Thunderbolt and Supercharged as well, although I would like to note that these two shades were a bit sheer (compared to the other shades) and can look a bit patchy, but it wasn't noticeable from a normal distance. Pyro and Volatile are less pigmented and sparkly than the other shades, but the colors are super pretty.

Honestly the only shades I didn't like were Flasher and Dynamite, both were streaky and patchy on me. Dynamite wasn't that bad compared to Flasher, but it wasn't smooth like the other shades.

  1. I love when a glossy formula is thicker! As you said, it stays put a heck of a lot longer! Dynamite is so freaking stunning!

    1. Yeah me too, I just wish this one was less sticky. Maybe I should try to add a bit of lipbalm!

  3. Your swatches are beautiful as always, and the glitter finish does show well on the photos. The deep purple is the shade I would go for, so beautiful!

  4. Your lip swatches are amazing! I just bought my first ever Buxom product, but it was a lip cream. I don't like sticky lipsticks (I don't mind lip glosses being a bit sticky) so I don't think I'll go for these, but the colours are really nice!

  9. Holy crap. I'll just be over here, gazing unendingly at Aftershock – what a shade!!

    I can't stand sticky lip products, so I'll be lusting after these ones from afar, I think ;)

    1. They aren't super sticky like a MAC lipgloss, but they are more tacky and thick than your typical creamy lipstick!

  12. I love Buxom so much, these are too pretty. I love this format of lipstick too (I love annabelles lipsticks in this packaging ). Thunderbolt looks so amazing.
