Hi Guys! Well im still struggling to believe its 2017!!! I just also turned 30!!! What a weird feeling!!! ANYWAYS, If you follow me on Instagram @beauty.in.bold you would know I received some of the new Bare Minerals Gen Nude collection*. THESE beauties are exclusive to MECCA MAXIMA and will be available as of January 31. I have been testing this collection out and I cant wait to share my thoughts!
If you’ve been following me for a while you would know I don’t use bare minerals makeup. I used to use the “well rested” concelaer but other than that I hadn’t tried anything. Why? I just wasnt interested. I knew bare minerals existed It just didn’t catch my eye. Last week I had an amazing package delivered by Mecca with some of the NEW Bare Minerals Nude Gen Collection. Instantly I loved the packaging, these look and feel luxurious. These are the type of product that you want to display and it made me want to check out more and more.
GEN NUDE MATTE LIQUID LIP COLOUR – $26 AUD
I was sent 3 of the 20 new Matte liquid lipsticks. I was sent 3 from the Pink range FRIENDSHIP, KISSYFACE and INFAMOUS. I love this packaging its glossy at the bottom and it ombres up to a matte frost top with a black lid. The formula of these is BEAUTIFUL. Absolutely not drying. These apply completely opaque and the doe foot applicator puts just the right amount on. This took about 3 minutes to dry. They didnt dry completely though. When drinking the colour didnt transfer to the cup, it’s not sticky yet matte but these are easy to remove unlike really dry matte liquid lipsticks. I love these and I think women of all ages would love them. I know the older we get lipstick can sink into the fine lines in our lips, not these.
GEN NUDE RADIANT LIPSTICK – $28 AUD
I was sent two of the new Radiant lipsticks in the shades NUDIST and LOVE. These lipsticks are so cool. The packaging is kind of heavy and chubby. They are so nice. The actual lipstick is quite round and thick and i LOVE this because it doesn’t bend or hit the side of the packaging like MAC lipsticks tend to sometimes. In my opinion. These are like a balm/lipstick hybrid. something beautiful to just throw on at work, or put on in the car, just something easy. These are so moisturising yet no slippery. If you want more pigment you will definitely need a lip pencil underneath. These aren’t something I would usually pick, I do like these for summer or for minimal makeup. I want to try some more browny shades!
GEN NUDE UNDER OVER LIP LINER $23
Lastly I was sent one of the 5 new lip liners in the shade “Attitude” its a dark chocolate-brown. The formula is lovely. So creamy and you could wear this alone, over or under another lip product (as the name would suggest)
I have a new-found interest in Bare Minerals. These lip formulas have proven to be competition for some of the best. The lipsticks are nice but I am much more Excited about Matte Liquid Lipsticks and Lip Pencils. There has also been 15 Buttercream Lipglosses for $26 AUD released. I am really excited to try those.
The packaging , formula and price all get a tick of approval from me.
Talk to me, what do you think of BareMinerals? Are you interested to try these? If you have already what is your favourite shade?
