Hello Monday Guys! Have you checked out the latest matte liquid lipsticks from BareMinerals? They actually have two lineups, one for the nude shades called the Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipcolors and another one with bolder colors which are called Statement Matte Lipcolors. They’re pretty the same in terms of formulation but I kinda prefer the shades in the Gen Nude line, not to mention that there’s 20 of them.
These Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipcolors from BareMinerals (0.13 oz $18) are cream to matte liquid lipsticks that’s ideal for anyone who loves matte liquid lipsticks but couldn’t stand the drying effect of it, and also especially for those who already suffers from dry lips. The formula of these lipsticks is lightweight and pretty much comfortable. I love the light cocoa scent and I also like that they’re very well-pigmented and very wearable.
The closest liquid lipstick in comparison to these is the Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet (reviewed HERE), but I think these BareMinerals Gen Nudes are slightly creamier. Though the effect is matte, these doesn’t really dry down like most matte liquid lipsticks, instead, they just kinda settle into a velvety matte effect. They’re definitely not transfer-proof, but no worries because these are so pigmented that the colors won’t even fade from your lips.
Finding the right shade or shades of these creamy matte lipsticks can be quite a challenge because there’s a lot to choose from. Eventually, I settled on two shades that I really love, one is a muted pinkish beige and the other is a muted rosy mauve.
Bo$$ – Dirty Pink Beige. Such a badass name for a lipstick, don’tcha think? This shade will definitely make you feel like the boss because it’s a beautiful warm pinkish beige that looks very natural and also sort of edgy. This would be great as an ideal everyday lip color that’s similar to Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet in Fawn No. 05.
Juju – Deep Rosy Mauve. I don’t know where they got this name, but whatever it is or whatever it means, I love this shade. It’s one of those perfect muted rose shades that you can wear anytime in any kind of day.
I find the packaging of these lipsticks to be somewhat simple but sturdy. Even the brush applicator is also sturdy and it applies precisely on the lips. For the price, well, it’s hard to complain since these are slightly more affordable than the other matte liquid lipsticks out there.
Overall, I’d give these lipsticks a 4 to 4.5 because I love their non-drying effect and I love the colors that are available. They’re great as everyday lip colors especially for those who loves matte-textured lipsticks.
What d’ya think of these?
