Bare Minerals Liquid Lip – A Review

February 25, 2017

Matte liquid lipsticks can be a tough one. Often they are drying and give you the weird, whats-happened-to-your-lipstick ring around the outside of your lips. They feel a little uncomfortable and, well, dry!

I quite like the look of a matte lip on me, and I personally find that they last longer.  I have tried a lot of them, from the less expensive to the higher end, but I think this one, (the Bare Minerals Gen Nude Liquid Lip to give it its full title) is one of my favourites.


Bare Minerals Liquid Lipcolour in “Swag”


Bare Minerals Gen Nude Liquid Lipcolour – Swag

Unusually for me, I actually went for a colour! I tend to go for a nude. Normally….. Always….. I have a gazillion nudes…….but,  I chose the colour Swag, a deep pinky colour. To  be fair, I liked four of them, (“Boss” was gorgeous) and if I was feeling indulgent, (and richer) I would have bought all four. The colours were so lovely and the four I liked seemed to suit me. A rarity. Have a look at the colour range here

I love this colour – Swag

The texture of the lip colour is quite creamy. It feels nice to apply. Im not a massive fan of the applicator, but that is more because it seems quite hard to scrape all the excess colour off it, so I find you can get a “blob” and it can get a little messy. Its not a huge issue, just something I found.

Durability wise, I found that this colour stayed well. I didn’t apply a lip liner first as I wanted to really road test it, (but I have done since and prefer it). I applied it as I was leaving for work, and it lasted well up until about 3 o clock. I don’t really drink cups of tea etc through the day, but I do talk, a lot,  all day, so it did stand up pretty well. (The photo on the right above is the wear after 4 hours)

I also was happy to find that it didn’t go all flaky and tacky feeling as it wore either, a massive plus point in my opinion as thats what I have found others I have tried have done.

Im definitely a fan of these, and will be adding a couple more colours. I don’t think £17 is too extortionate either. Thumbs up from me.
