A couple weeks ago on my social channels (mainly instagram and twitter) , I couldn’t stop raving about this liquid lipstick from BareMinerals. This is the Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipstick that I received in my July PLAY! Bag (seen here), and I immediately went and bought it in the full size because I knew it was going to be my new staple lippie. What can I say, I think I might have an addiction to liquid lipsticks!
I initially bought Swag and Wink, but Wink ended up being way too pale for my skin tone and I returned it. I am obsessed with Swag, a pinky-mauve shade that is the perfect pink-nude for my complexion.
When I went to return Wink, I intended on getting my money back. But, of course, I stopped by to swatch a few colors and ended up swapping it for another shade, XYZ. XYZ is described as a cinnamon beige. It’s a little brown, but not in that grungy gray-brown way. Instead, it has hints of pink undertones and I think it is the perfect nude, especially with fall right around the corner.
This formula of these liquid lipsticks is phenomenal. It’s creamy, lightweight, and not too drying. It has a fairly long wear time, but you will definitely need to reapply it as the day goes on. I just cannot say enough good things about this product and I can’t wait to get more colors because . . . the addiction is real, and fall lips are right around the corner.
