REVIEW: Bare Minerals Liquid Lipstick

Hello, lovelies!

I recently received a sample of Bare Minerals Liquid Lipstick. I was thrilled to test a new liquid lipstick formula, and this product exceeded my expectations! The lipstick is richly pigmented, lightweight and long-wearing. After testing the shade ‘Fire’, I immediately added additional shades to my collection!

The Packaging 

The packaging of this lipstick is sleek and sophisticated. The barrel of the tube features the colour of the lipstick within, while the cap is matte black. I own the shade ‘Fire’ and the tube is a stunningly bright red. The lipstick’s doe-foot applicator lets you apply the lipstick precisely.

The Formula 

This unique formula caught my attention. While the product is a liquid lipstick, the formula feels creamy and lightweight. It dries down to a matte finish yet it stays feathery-light. When I wear this lipstick, I don’t feel any heaviness on my lips!

The Wear 

The lipstick doesn’t require a moisturizing lip balm before application, but I apply it with a lip liner for longevity. The lipstick lasts for 5-6 hours on the lips without fading. As it begins to fade, it transforms into a beautiful lip stain before completely disappearing.

The Shades 

Bare Minerals Liquid Lipstick is available in 24 shades:

  • Smooch – Faded lilac
  • Slay – Dusty light mauve
  • Swag – Blushing mauve
  • Icon – Rich brown mauve
  • Juju – Deep rose
  • Swank – Royal purple

  • VIP – Bold crimson
  • Juicy – Poppy red
  • Naughty – Deep oxblood red
  • Shameless – Neon hot pink
  • OMG – Vivid violet
  • Flawless – Muted plum
  • Devious – Rich burgundy

Bare Minerals Liquid Lipstick is a lightweight, pigmented lipstick. The formula is long-wearing and comfortable on the lips. I adore the colour selection and the shades are versatile to transition from day to night! Each lipstick retails for $23 at Sephora.

Erin Angela’s Sephora Holiday Bonus Sale Haul

Hello, lovelies!

Sephora’s annual fall VIB Sale took place for two weekends this season, and it was a perfect opportunity for me to stock up on essentials in my makeup bag! Here’s a look into my Sephora VIB Sale Haul:

Tarte Creaseless Concealer

Tarte’s Creaseless Concealer is a staple product for me. Out of every concealer I’ve tried, this one from Tarte is the only one that does not crease throughout the day. It provides a full-coverage finish while concealing any blemishes or dark circles. I’ve repurchased this concealer twice this year and stocked up when I noticed my current concealer was running low.

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

I’ve re-purchased Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner multiple times, and this product always gives me sharp, smudge-proof winged liner. This liner lasts throughout the day without fading. I can definitely count on this eyeliner to stay vibrant and long-lasting. I continually buy the shade Trooper, a satin black shade.

Laneige Good Night Lip Mask Kit

I’ve never tried any of Laneige’s Lip Sleeping Masks and decided to pick this to try the brand. This is a travel-friendly set that contains a mini Lip Sleeping Mask and a mini Water Sleeping Mask. I tried the Lip Sleeping Mask once, and the balm-like product left my lips soft and hydrated!

BareMinerals Mineral Veil

This loose setting powder is sheer with a luminous finish. After testing it once, it beautifully blurred imperfections while setting my makeup. The finely-milled powder is lightweight and gives the skin a matte finish. I’m eager to test this formula against my beloved Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder.

REVIEW: BareMinerals Statement Matte Liquid Lipstick

Hello, lovelies!

I recently received a sample of BareMinerals Statement Matte Liquid Lipstick from Sephora. This lipstick is a long-wearing, comfortable liquid lipstick. I typically do not buy lipstick from brands such as BareMinerals or Dior, so I was quite excited to test this liquid lipstick from BareMinerals!

The Packaging 

This lipstick comes in a squared tube with a black top. The tube itself is lightweight, and bears the colour of the lipstick held inside. Similar to most liquid lipsticks, this one has a doe-foot applicator to apply lip colour evenly. The tube bears the ‘BareMinerals’ logo and it looks sleek and sophisticated.

The Wear

This lipstick dries matte, and feels very comfortable on the lips. I wear the lipstick for 4-5 hours throughout the day and it does not flake or smudge.

The Colour 

I instantly loved the colour. The sample I received was in the shade ‘Fire’, a gorgeous orange-red. The colour appears as a bright, vibrant red with orange undertones when applied to the lips.

This lipstick is available in a range of 9 shades, including:

  • Luxe – Dirty pastel pink
  • Fire – Bright orange-red
  • VIP – Crimson
  • Naughty – Oxblood-red
  • Juicy – Brick red
  • Shameless – Hot pink
  • OMG – Magenta
  • Flawless – Muted plum
  • Devious – Burgundy with a lilac undertone

BareMinerals Statement Matte Liquid Lipstick is a long-wearing, comfortable formula. I adore the colour selection and it offers shades that are versatile for day or night. This lipstick retails for $19 at Sephora.

My Sephora Haul: Spring Edition

Hello, lovelies!

My most recent trip to Sephora involved restocking my makeup essentials. While I browsed, I added a few additional items to my cart. In today’s post, I’ll break down the products I restocked and the new additions to my makeup collection.

NEW ADDITIONS 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette 

This palette is a perfect combination of subtle earth-toned shades, sparkling rose-gold and matte black eyeshadows. I do not have a set of neutral mattes in my collection. Two initial shades drew me to this palette – a matte carbon-black and a rose gold with an iridescent finish. This palette will be an essential component of my spring makeup! I often do not wear neutral eyeshadow tones, but this will be a perfect place to start.

BareMinerals Matte Liquid Lipcolor Mini 

I received a sample of this liquid lipstick from BareMinerals. I always enjoy trying new lipstick formulas to determine how they compare to my favourites. This sample is in the shade Fire. This shade is a beautiful orange-red that is different from shades I typically wear.

RESTOCKED 

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner 

My beloved eyeliner lasted me a long time. I have worn the Tattoo Liner formula for the past two years, and knew I would return to this Kat Von D product once my eyeliner dried out. I restocked the eyeliner in the shade Trooper – a crisp, matte black. I actually did not realize my eyeliner was beginning to dry out until I tried the new pen. In comparison to the tube I’ve always used, the new one delivered a bold, crisp line.
