Buxom PillowPout Creamy Plumping Lip Powders

This will probably come as a surprise to you, but even if I've tested hundreds of lipsticks since the creation of this blog, I've never tried a lip powder before. But that was until last week, when Buxom generously sent me their new PillowPout Creamy Plumping Lip Powders! Available in 10 semi-matte shades, these lipsticks are said to provide intense color in a smudge-proof formula.

The PillowPout lip powders have a very unique formula! It feels like a cream and has a cooling menthol effect on the skin, but it dries down to a powder finish. These lipsticks have a matte finish with a subtle satin sheen.

I would say that the color is buildable, you can apply a thin layer for a soft look and a second layer if you prefer an intense color payoff. All the shades look even on my lips, but I noticed that Want You and Seduce Me can emphasize dry skin.

For more precision, pair them with a lip pencil (such as Buxom's Plumpline Lip Liners) or use a lip brush to define the outer edges. You can also add a bit of lipgloss or lip balm, if you prefer a glossy finish!

What I love about the PillowPout lip powders is that the formula isn't fussy like some liquid lipsticks tend to be. It doesn't crack or flake off, even if I apply a generous amount of product or reapply during the day!

Also, they don't bleed around the mouth even if I don't use a lip pencil. They aren't completely transfer proof, but the staying power is pretty good. The nude shades wear well for about 5 hours, while the other colors last more than 7 hours on me.

The only downside for me is that I haven't noticed a plumping effect and they aren't moisturizing enough for my dry lips. I wouldn't be able to use them regularly, but I love the finish and the nude shades are to die for!

My top picks? Cuddle Me, Darling Dolly and Kiss Me!

    1. They are creamy upon application, but feel more like a powder as the day progresses!

  2. These look so neat. I was swatching them in the store the other day and really liked how they looked. Buxom has some fun products.

  4. I have never tired a powder lip powder formula either. It would be interesting but I worry about the dryness as well. As usual, I love your lip swatches and photos :)
