While I was at Macy's this weekend to get my brows done at the Brow Bar I saw the new Bare Minerals Gen Nude collection. A sales woman approached me and told me it was the "grand launch" of the line at Macy's and if you spent $50 you'd get a free gift with purchase. So naturally I had to pick up two liquid lips and a lip liner.
I picked up liquid lipsticks in Wink and Cookie and a lip liner in Borderline
First impression:
I love love love the packaging. It's so simple and chic, which I think is the look that they were going for. When you first open the liquid lipstick there's a very strong chocolate-y smell very similar to the Too Faced Chocolate line. For me the smell did not bother me but I do know that many people are sensitive to that. (The smell does not transfer when applied) There is a great varieties of colors so there's something to match everyone's skin tones and preferences.
Review:
Both liquid lipsticks went on very easily and very opaque. You don't have to work too quickly before they dry, but once they do dry they don't move. I can go the whole day without reapplying. That being said I'm usually reapply after I eat because I always feel like there's food on my lipstick after a meal. The formula is hardly drying and that is coming from someone who always has dry lips. I do find myself occasionally wanting to put some Chapstick on top but I do have very chapped lips.
I would definitely recommend the shade Cookie over Wink. It works better with my fair skin. Wink washes me out a little too much while Cookie is that "your lip color but better" shade on me. The lip liner is such a versatile color, you could wear it with almost any color.
Over all I give these products a 9.5/10
There's always room for improvement :)
