The new GEN NUDE line by bareMinerals recently launched in 60 different shades, which is pretty exciting for natural looking makeup lovers like myself. bareMinerals sent a few over for me to try, so I thought it would be fun to share a review of them on the blog. I’m always trying out new products, looking for the best foundation or that everyday go-to lipstick shade, however I think it will be hard to pry me away from Dior’s mascara. My sister and I are always sending each other screenshots of our favorite products or texting about whether or not we’ve tried the newest palette from a line. Many of you have asked about what my favorite makeup products are for a natural look…well, some of these lip colors are included. Check them out below.
Liquid lip colors are quickly becoming my favorite. They go on like a lipgloss and dry like a lipstick. I find these to be longer lasting as well, which is great for when you’re on the go or have a special event to attend. I usually lean toward more pinky tones, so the “JuJu” shade was perfect. I also tried out the peachy tone, “Extra”, which was so pretty in the bottle, but ended up washing out my fair skin tone. “Friendship” is great for a more daring night out look. It reminds me a bit of Kat Von D’s “Lolita”, which I’m a fan of. I’m not a huge lipgloss gal (although I embarrassingly applied it like crazy in between classes in my high school days, hah!), but I did find myself putting a little gloss over some of the liquid lip colors for a a bit of shine on some days. I even put a little on when I’m at home sometimes and don’t have full makeup on, just to feel pulled together. (Am I the only one who does that? 😉 ) Thankfully they’re not sticky at all, which is usually the case with most glosses. I’m wearing the shade “Fancy” in the photo above.
The Radiant lipsticks are so creamy! They give medium coverage and are the perfect balance if you’re looking for more than a tint, but aren’t ready to dive into bold matte color. I’ve been wearing this formula the most out of the collection, in “Notorious”. It’s a great mauve shade that I feel like will flatter all skin tones and is pretty moisturizing. My lips have been so dry lately, so a lip color that is more like a super pigmented lip balm is right up my alley.
What do you guys think? What are your go-to lip colors?
