It’s Monday Funday! The good thing about working weekends is that Monday isn’t a dreadful day!!!
So, I got an awesome package in the mail from Buxom (don’tcha just love Buxom?!?) with some of their best-sellers, and it also had their new Big Tease plumping mascara inside! I absolutely love a great mascara as it really helps “finish” a look.

Buxom created Big Tease as a way of bringing their signature plumping power to lashes, to go with your plumped Buxom pout. This is purported to be the brand’s most volumizing, statement-making mascara yet, making your lashes instantly plumped, voluminous, and longer.
The tapered brush has a unique, conical shape and chisel-tipped bristles that grab and coat lashes. The formula has a creamy-velvet consistency with three high-performance waxes that create a buildable and long-wearing inky, glossy black finish. Furthermore, it’s smudge-proof, clump-free and flake-resistant.
First off, I really, really, REALLY love the brush- the shape makes it super easy to get those tiny lashes in the corners that are nearly impossible to get to with most other brushes. The formula is pretty wet at first, so it goes on easily without leaving clumps.
Before using mascara- please excuse the powder- I forgot to take a “before” pic prior to starting to put on makeup…lol!
After- one coat of Buxom Big Tease mascara
I would say that it’s definitely volumizing, although not as dramatically so as the Too Faced Better Than Sex. But, the Buxom Big Tease formula is buildable, and doesn’t leave tons of clumps like the BTS. After several coats, I can get to nearly the same volume as BTS, and more easily coat the tiny lashes, too.
I wore the mascara paired with the Big & Sexy Bold Gel Lipstick in matte Sinful Cinnamon, and paired it with the Full On Lipstick in White Russian the next day. I got quite a few compliments, so I was happy with both looks.
Although the Sinful Cinnamon is a matte shade, it wasn’t super-duper matte, so it didn’t dry my lips out like so many others. The White Russian was equally fabulous- I like how it’s packaged similar to a crayon-sized liner as it made it a breeze to apply, even on-the-go.
I wore Big Tease all day long in the Louisiana heat and humidity, and never got any flaking- just really awesome lashes. I didn’t have any problems with my lashes being weighted down and drooping, either. So, definitely a mascara worth checking out! Head over to buxomcosmetics.com, and have fun shopping!
