Hi I was lucky enough to be selected to review a new bareMinerals lipstick (their new BarePro longwear lipstick in shade Petal).
Before I start, I am not a big lipstick wearer, more a gloss girl as I don’t like the feel of heavy lipsticks on me and am always conscious of leaving lipstick marks on cups/bottles/my sandwich and having to re-apply as they don’t always last.
I was very excited to try this product as it claims to be lightweight, comfortable to wear and transfer proof with up to 8 hrs of wear...so lets start.
I applied this when I get to work and took the 1st picture about 8.35 before I had breakfast. I lined my lips and applied the bareMinerals lipstick. It went on easily, gave pretty good coverage and felt really nice on my lips. Very light – you could almost forget you are wearing any lipstick.
It has a matte finish (which I am actually not a fan of) but it didn’t dry my lips out and sat nicely on my lips.
It didn’t completely survive my bowl of cereal unfortunately. Most of the colour on the outer part of my lips stayed, but some had started to come away.
I removed it and re-applied at 9.40ish (2nd picture) and this time when I lined my lips, I filled them in with the liner as well to see if this helped.
The lipstick looked ok come 12.45 when I went for lunch, however by the end of my lunch was almost all gone.
I was lucky enough to be selected too but I haven't received mine yet. @Sweet_caragh
Personally I am a fan of mattes. I don't have many pink lipsticks as I'm not a big pink fan as I feel they don't suit me, so it'll be interesting to see what I think of it! It does look like a very natural colour that might suit all though?
Thanks for for your review, it's interesting to read what others think of it!
@Sweet_caragh Lovely detailed review. I'm a fan of matte finishes and don't have lot of nude pinkish lipsticks so I will have to definately try it out however I agree, it is quite natural so would apply lipgloss over it and set it so it would stay nicely
Lovely review, and lovely colour! It's good to hear it's not drying, it's hard to find a matte lipstick like this.
I know what you mean with feeling washed out, it happens to me with light colours, I think this suits you really well though !
Thank you @te06071 for the compliment.
@nogravityleft it is a nice colour - just not quite me. If it had a bit more pink/deeper colour, I think I would have liked it better
@Pineapple thank you. It does feel nice on, nice and light and in the 3hrs between reapplying and lunch, it never once felt it was drying. Just comfortable.
