Looking for eyeshadows that really make an impact? We recently discovered the Buxom eyeshadows and I have to say… we’re in love with these highly pigmented, silky eyeshadows!
The history of the brand
Buxom recently launched in Debenhams in the UK. It has been a cult favourite in the US so it’s exciting to see it launch here in the UK. So we popped down to the store to have a play around… and picked out some of our favourite shadows from their collection to review for you here!
The eyeshadows from left to right on the palette are: Wild Nights, Patent Leather, Mink Magnet, Champagne Buzz, Pure Platinum and Diamond Darling.
What’s to love…
The eyeshadows are infused with primer for an intense payoff and lasting power. All of these shadows blend beautifully together and are silky-smooth. Let’s talk about the individual shadows…
Wild Nights is a shimmery plum colour, patent leather is a sparkly purple, mink magnet is a metallic bronze, champagne buzz is a shimmering pearl, pure platinum is a metallic silver and diamond darling is a shimmering, frosty white. All of the colours are very pigmented, blend seamlessly and last all day long. Due to the fact that these shadows are infused with primer, they go on almost like a cream, but they are also very soft in the pan. I will usually apply the colour all over my lid with my finger, blending it with my brush.
Now the real standout shadow in this whole collection is the silver… because it is incredible and I have to talk about it. It is like molten silver, glides on beautifully and is insanely pigmented. They are all infused with primer so go on a little as if they’re already wet, but this silver is really something special. Even the tiniest amount gives off incredible payoff and if you’re near the store and get a chance to play with the shadows… make sure you swatch this one and you will be amazed!
This is a customisable eyeshadow palette – you can choose from different 40 eyeshadows which have either a matte, metallic, satin and shimmer finish. These are the ones that stood out to me the most. If you don’t want to create your own palette, they do already have a few pre-customised palettes for you to choose from. It has very sturdy packaging, with a cool snakeskin print on it, which I enjoy.
We cannot wait to explore more from this range. Let us know if there’s any other Buxom products you’d like us to review!
