Buxom Glow and Tell kit

RATING (out of 5 stars): 4 stars

COST: 500 Sephora points

THE SKINNY: Sephora recently offered this Buxom kit (Hot Escapes Bronzer in Tahiti, Divine Goddess Luminizer in Venus, Lip Polish in Tonya and Lash Mascara in Blackest Black) as a 500-point reward. I've had such good luck with Buxom products that I had to jump.

The kit is all sample-sizes but a lot of fun. My favorites are the Lip Polish and the Lash Mascara.

Buxom's lip glosses are rich, creamy and usually well-pigmented. This color, Tonya, isn't one I would have ever picked up myself. It's a sparkly bright pink that goes on surprisingly sheer and is perfect for summer. I use it nearly every day.

The mascara, in Blackest Black, is a great everyday mascara that lengthens and offers clean lash definition. It isn't clumpy or too much for work. I use it nearly every day, too.

The bronzer is a decent, run-of-the-mill product. And the luminizer is a little sparkly for me, but also decent.

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep. This is a fun group of products.
