Bare Minerals Pretty Amazing Lipcolor (in Bravado)


RATING (out of 5 stars): 3 stars

COST: $16

THE SKINNY: I love Bare Minerals. I hate lipstick. So this product is a real test of my loyalty.

After trying Bare Minerals Pretty Amazing Lipcolor (I sampled the Bravado shade), I don't think any less of one of my favorite beauty-product makers but I still don't particularly like lipstick. I will just always be more of a gloss girl.

The shade was nice and was not as thick as many other lipsticks that I have tried in the past. The sample card called it a “cellophane-like glaze” and that is a perfect description. It wrapped my lips but without bulk.

The color was long lasting but was unforgiving if you missed a spot -- it was obviously lacking color -- or drew outside the lip line. (Please excuse the mistakes of this lipstick novice.)

The gloss-like applicator did not fool me into thinking this was not a lipstick and it lacked the shine and that I love about glosses.

KEEP OR TOSS: For lipstick wearers, this is probably a keeper. I am returning to my favorite gloss but will keep this small one on hand for special occasions.

CHECK IT OUT: Check out all 12 shades of Pretty Amazing Lipcolor and buy direct from Bare Minerals (also make sure to check out the sales for great beauty clearance deals).
