Buxom Big & Sexy Bold Gel Lipstick in Voodoo Spice: Review, Swatches, & Comparisons

Another new lippy at Sephora...coming your way! Just when I thought I was strong enough to resist Buxom's new releases with their eyeshadows, they had to go and release their Buxom Big & Sexy Bold Gel Lipsticks. And I was sunk. 

Buxom Big & Sexy Bold Gel Lipstick in Voodoo Spice

These retail for $22 each and can be purchased on Sephora's website or in stores. 

The packaging on these is beautiful.  Even the box is adorable.  Buxom has a very vintage, yet slightly pin up and sexy vibe to their line, and I love it! I chose a matte lipstick, since I'm a matte lipstick lover. They also have a satin finish in this line.  For the matte lipsticks, the bullets are a flat matte finish, while the satins have a sheen to them.  They have a magnetic closure to them, which bumps up the fanciness in my book! My only sliiiight qualm is that my semi OCD side has to perfectly line up the X when the 2 sides come together. Also, the bullet itself is wide, so it's a bit more difficult to get precise application with, versus a traditional lipstick bullet shape.

I chose Voodoo Spice, which is described as a matte deep blue red.  And I think that description matches it really well.  I picked it because fall is right around the corner (and hopefully fall temps too!), so I'm already lusting after those vampy lip shades! 

Swatch: Buxom Big & Sexy Bold Gel Lipstick in Voodoo Spice

When I swatched it, it reminded me of Maybelline's Divine Wine, so I decided to do some comparisons between it and a few of my other Maybelline Creamy Mattes. Rich Ruby is no where close, so just pretend I didn't even swatch that one! ;) Divine Wine is definitely the closest.  It has maybe just a tinge more red in it than Voodoo Spice.  Burgundy Blush is definitely darker and has a bit more purple in it.

As far as the formula goes, it's soft and creamy and comfortable.  This lipstick gets a big thumbs up in my book.  I can't wait to rock this lipstick a lot in the fall! ...And maybe pick up a couple more shades from the line. ;)
