Let me start this post by admitting that I absolutely loathe liquid lipsticks. I’ve tried so many of them over my lifetime, and I hate how they leave my lips so dry and cracked and flaking. The color almost never wears evenly and it is hard to reapply throughout the day. That being said, I was completely blown away when I tried the Bare Minerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipcolor. I received a deluxe sample of the shade “Swag” which is a nice neutral mauve. The full sized version of this product can be purchased from Sephora for $18.
This is definitely the least drying matte liquid lip color I think I’ve ever tried. It felt soft on my lips and had an almost velvety texture. It was, naturally, a little bit drying, but it was definitely more manageable than I expected. The nude mauve color was really pretty, and I was shocked at how evenly and easily this slid on my lips. It was a very natural-looking shade, which I think helped it appear to wear off evenly. I’m curious if a bolder shade would have appeared to wear off so easily since it would be more noticeable if it was not. Still, I was very impressed by this particular product, and I loved the shade.
I would absolutely recommend this product to someone who is looking for a matte long-wearing lip color. Will I purchase the full size of this product? Probably not. I still don’t like liquid lipsticks, but if I had to wear one, I would definitely choose this one.
Have you tried a brand of liquid lipsticks that didn’t dry out your lips too much? Please, let me know in the comments section!
