I’m always on the hunt for a good lip gloss!

Lip gloss is easy. The application is forgiving, the look is effortless, and you can apply without a mirror!

My favorite lip gloss formula from Buxom recently released some delicious fall shades in the Hot Shots Full-On Plumping Lip Gloss collection!

I purchased two shades – “Spiced Hot Toddy” (below Left) and “Peppermint Hot Cocoa” (below Right)!

On the Buxom website, “Spiced Hot Toddy” is described as “warm brown with a touch of pink.” It is a gorgeous fall color, warm and vibrant like the changing leaves. It is a stunning neutral pink (see below):

Likewise, “Peppermint Hot Cocoa” is described on the website as “soft rosewood pink.” I feel this is the ultimate ladylike lip gloss shade – definitely a “my-lips-but-better” shade that goes with everything. When I see this shade, I think of Kate Middleton, who often wears a lip gloss of this hue (see below):

A few thoughts…

I absolutely love these classic, neutral shades! They are neutral, go with every skin tone and outfit, and slip in your purse for easy transport. Perfect for autumn!

One thing that I absolutely love about these lip glosses is that they bestow the cool, tingling sensation so unique to Buxom lip glosses. It provides the comforting sensation one experiences when consuming a mint. This makes this lip gloss formula my favorite, and, in my opinion, the best on the market.

One downside, however…

Unlike the lip glosses in the regular Buxom lip gloss line, these have a strong scent. I personally don’t mind this at all, but, for many women, it is a major turnoff as far as lip gloss is concerned.

Overall, however, I love these lip glosses! They will be stashed in my purse for months to come!
