Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Stick vs ELF Matte Lip Colour

Hi beauties! I'm finally back in the blogsphere and will try to update consistently!

For the past few months I've been really enjoying lip products that are easy to use and long lasting. Since my lips aren't particularly big, I find that lip sticks that are in pencil forms to be extremely convenient! I could line my lips and fill in with no problem.

Here are 2 comparable products!

Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Stick in Nuntucket (discontinued colour) & Barcelona


Buxom lip products are slightly minty and they make your lips feel tingly upon application. I personally enjoy that feeling but it might be a problem with some people.

This product is long lasting and has a good selection of colours. Unfortunately they are slightly expensive at $19 a pop. If you are on a budget, I suggest you to look at....

ELF Matte Lip Colour in Rich Red, Tea Rose, Coral & Nearly Nude

At $3 a piece, you can't go wrong! The pigmentation is amazing and they last as long as the buxom lip sticks! 


I  love the Coral (3rd from the top) colour as it gives my yellow undertone the perfect nude lips. The lip sticks are non drying and have no flavour or scent or tingly effect upon application.

A comparison of the nude colours.

FLTR: ELF Nearly Nude; Buxom Nuntucket; ELF Coral

The colours are really similar but Nuntucket can look a bit dry on the lips. However all the colours for Buxom seem to vary slightly in their formulation, where the Barcelona (deep red) colour is actually much more moisturising.

If you worry that the tip is not pointy enough after some use, fear not! Both the brands include a sharpener at the end cap of the pencil.

They are the same size

If you are in a market for lip pencils or sticks, try them out :D I'm sure you'll be pleasantly surprise on how easy they are compared to the standard lipsticks!
