Buxom Bronzed Beauty

Hey Beautiful!!!!

Today I want to share with you some products that I've been trying out over the summer. I have been absolutely loving them to create that bronzed goddess summer time look - which is my favorite look for this season. However, they can also be carried over and transitioned into the coming fall season, which I love.

Let's start with the Buxom Divine Goddess Luminizer, probably my favorite of the bunch I'm talking about today. It comes in one shade: Venus which is a sheer shimmering nude and retails for $28 exclusively at Sephora. I like it because it has a slight bronze tint to it. I like to apply it all over my face to give me that all-over glow but it can also be used in specific areas as a highlight.

This stuff IS potent so remember a little goes a long way, less is more, and all those other sayings. I apply it after my moisturizer but BEFORE my foundation. I find that applying it before my foundation - even when I use a full-coverage foundation - gives me just the right amount of 'goddess glow' shinning through. I loved this product all summer long and I will be carrying it into the fall for nights out or special events. Matte is big this upcoming fall season, but personally for special nights I still love my dewy glow.

Next up is the Buxom Hot Escapes Bronzer. This comes in two shades: Tahiti which is a golden bronze (the lighter color) and Maldives which is a rustic bronze (the darker color pictured). These also retail for $28 exclusively at Sephora.

I have been using and loving both colors. The lighter one I tend to use for day time and the darker one for night time. They both have very buildable coverage and work as an all over bronzer or for contouring. They also contain coconut oil which hydrates skin - as a dry skinned girl I loved this! The texture of the bronzers is very velvety and almost creamy which allows for a flawless and smooth application. I'm also a huge packaging girl and love any type of bronzer of blush that comes with an imprinted design. These bronzers make me feel that, if I could shrink myself down and walk along the bronzer, I would be walking along glittering smooth sand. Basically, opening these bronzers put me in a happy place, as weird as it sounds.

Finally, I'm sharing with you the Buxom Hold the Line Waterproof Eyeliners. These retail for $17 exclusively at Sephora.

They come in 8 different colors (shown below): 
Call Me (matte black)
I'll Be Waiting (metallic pewter)
Pick Me Up (glittery navy blue)
Doors Unlocked (metallic purple)
Here's My Number (matte dark brown)
Come Over (glittery bronze)
Knock Twice (metallic taupe)
Ring My Bell (matte jade)

 These bad boys are PIGMENTED!! I especially fell in love with them because they are great for on the go. They have a gel like formula which allows for easy glide application and the waterproof formula ensures that it will last all day and night, even on the water line) I have a huge problem applying a pencil eyeliner along my upper lash line, usually I opt for a gel liner and a brush but that's time consuming and it's extra things to carry around. Not to mention the brush, if placed in your purse or makeup bag after application, will get left over gel liner residue all over. I love being able to open up this pencil, go crazy with my cat eye, close the top and keep it movin'. The color selection is also great. For the summer the waterproof formula was a huge plus. Going into the fall season I feel like these colors are perfect for any day or night time fall themed look. They will definitely be transitioning with me into the next season. Below you can see swatches of all the colors.

I hope you guys enjoyed this review!! If you want to see these products in action check out my back to school makeup tutorial below. I did a quick and easy look for you guys that you can recreate for school days, work days or any day really. It's a nice natural look with a subtle pop of color thanks to some purple eyeliner. Let me know your thoughts!

Love you all!!!!
