bareMinerals Your Kiss Is On My List Gen Nude Radiant Lipstick Set

bareMinerals Your Kiss Is On My List Gen Nude Radiant Lipstick Set

bareMinerals Your Kiss Is On My List Gen Nude Radiant Lipstick Set ($35.00 for 0.32 oz.) includes eight miniature sized Gen Nude Radiant Lipsticks (which are all available in full size, if you only like one or two). The Gen Nude Radiant Lipstick formula is best for someone who likes lighter coverage, natural to glossy finishes, and doesn’t mind reapplying every few hours. It’s a comfortable, hydrating formula but doesn’t last long and can sometimes settle into lip lines due to the more emollient, slippery texture. The set is a nice value, and there is some variety in tone within the eight shades.

  • Gen Nude Radiant Lipstick: $20.00 for 0.12 oz. or $166.67/oz.
  • Total Value: $53.33

Formula Overview

bareMinerals GEN NUDE Radiant Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “creamy, moisturizing” lipstick with “medium coverage and a balmy shine.” The formula is moderately hydrating and tends to last between two and a half and four hours on me, but it is a shorter-wearing formula due to the more balm-like texture. It has a very slippery, wet-feel on the lips, which can lead to “lines” when you press your lips together or, in some cases, the color settling into lip lines. The pigmentation varies from semi-sheer to semi-opaque, which I feel is fairly consistent with the “medium coverage” claim. The finish tends to be glossier running from natural to noticeably glossy but feels lightweight on. The formula has a soft, sweet vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

bareMinerals The Wish List READY Eyeshadow Palette

bareMinerals The Wish List READY Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00 for 0.48 oz.) includes 12 neutral-hued eyeshadows in a variety of finishes. It is housed in a fairly slim, plastic compact with a large mirror inside. If you like lighter, warmer neutrals and don’t already have them well-represented in your stash, it’s certainly a palette to consider. On the other hand, as there are numerous palettes that have been launched, there are likely many who already have these colors in their collections (this palette also included several repeats from past bareMinerals shades). Regardless of similarity to past and present neutral palettes, I would have liked to have seen more mid-tone shades and less very light all within the same palette–I feel like it would have made the palette more versatile.

Formula Overview

Ready Eyeshadow is supposed to have 12-hour wear, “vivid, pure, provocative color” that “looks like a powder, feels like a cream” and blends seamlessly. In general, I quite enjoy this formula, and it’s one of my favorites, as it is typically soft without being too powdery or dusty and more shimmery shades have a real creaminess to them. They wear between eight and twelve hours on me (without primer), blend well, and sit nicely on the skin. The majority of the shades I’ve tested in the past have been mostly opaque to opaque, but there have been a few misses over the years (not too many, though).

Value

  • Eyeshadows: $21.00 for 0.09 oz. or $233.33/oz.
  • Palette Contains: 0.48 oz.
  • Total Value: $112.00 worth of Ready Eyeshadow

Come True is a muted, light-medium taupe-brown with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, silky texture that kicked up a little excess in the pan but did not look dry on the skin. It started to fade after nine hours of wear.

Granted is a muted, medium orangy-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. While the pigmentation was fairly good and true-to-pan, the texture was noticeably dusty and prone to sheering out, so it was harder to apply it as an even layer of product. The wear was shorter than usual at seven and a half hours. Ciate Skinny Dip (LE)(100% similar). Tarte Force of Nature (LE) is more muted (95% similar). Too Faced Tiramisu (LE, $16.00)(95% similar).

Yes Please is a medium-dark, taupe brown with warm, golden undertones and a pearly sheen. It appeared to have a grayer overtone than it seemed in the palette, and I couldn’t really tell you why; my best guess is the shimmer comes through more noticeably as it is pressed and worked into the skin than it is in the pan. The color had good pigmentation and wore for nine hours before fading. MAC Soft Steel (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Cocoa Brown (LE) is cooler (95% similar).

Stiletto is a deep plum with lighter purple shimmer over a mostly matte finish. It is the type of finish where the shimmer is barely noticeable in action, as it seems to disappear between the pan, your brush, and the eye. The product was extremely rich in pigment, while the consistency was soft, finely-milled, and fairly blendable on the lid. It wore well for nine hours before I saw some signs of fading. Too Faced Soiree (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Chanel Rouge Contraste (132) (LE, $32.00) is warmer (95% similar). Anastasia Rich Velvet (P, $12.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Chance is a light beige with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish.

Daydream is a light-medium, yellowed beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was somewhat powdery, which resulted in sheerer coverage and a powder that did not want to stick as evenly to bare skin as other shades in the palette. It lasted for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably. Tarte Big Baby (LE) is lighter (95% similar). LORAC Buff (P, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Gold Leaf is a muted, medium coppery orange with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, slightly drier texture that kicked up excess powder in the pan.

Good Spirits is a subdued, medium-dark, red-toned brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had so-so color payoff, which was buildable on the lid, that applied fairly evenly to bare skin.

Boardroom is a deep brown with warmer, redder undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff paired with a dusty, thin texture, which made it harder to blend, apply, and even out.

bareMinerals Be Beautiful Holiday 2016 Face & Eye Palette

bareMinerals Be Beautiful Ready Face & Eye Palette
bareMinerals Be Beautiful Ready Face & Eye Palette

bareMinerals Be Beautiful Ready Face & Eye Palette ($45.00 for 0.58 oz.) includes six eyeshadows, three cheek colors, and a finishing powder. It is most bizarre that there’s a finishing powder, and it is, frankly, an odd color choice–it is very, very yellowy orange with no real sheen or satiny quality to it, so it is drier, powdery, and sits poorly on the skin while adding a yellow tint. Of all the inclusions in the palette, that was the most odd, and then of course, bareMinerals is a multiple-time offender of putting out an endless slew of neutral palettes so once you have a few, the rest start having less appeal.

I wasn’t particularly impressed by the cheek colors in the palette, as they had a firmer press that made it harder to get color payoff out of them. The eyeshadows were good and consistent with the Ready formula, but they seem unbalanced in depth–there are two very light shades and then two browns that are just a shade or two different; even sticking with neutrals, the composition could be more versatile. The palette itself is housed in a plastic compact this year, which is new, and for some, I imagine they’ll consider it an upgrade from cardboard, but it did feel bulkier as a result.

Value

  • Cheek Colors: $24.00 for 0.21 oz.; palette contains 0.27 oz. or $30.86 worth of cheek color
  • Finishing Powder: $23.00 for 0.30 oz. (using pricing for the Touch Up Veil, closest available product); palette contains 0.09 oz. or $6.90 worth of finishing
  • Eyeshadows: $21.00 for 0.09 oz.; palette contains 0.30 oz. or $70.00 worth of eyeshadow
  • Total Value: $107.76

Ready Eyeshadow is supposed to have 12-hour wear, “vivid, pure, provocative color” that “looks like a powder, feels like a cream” and blends seamlessly. In general, I quite enjoy this formula, and it’s one of my favorites, as it is typically soft without being too powdery or dusty and more shimmery shades have a real creaminess to them. They wear between eight and twelve hours on me (without primer), blend well, and sit nicely on the skin. The majority of the shades I’ve tested in the past have been mostly opaque to opaque, but there have been a few misses over the years (not too many, though). Ready Blush is supposed to have “buildable color” with eight-hour wear, and those things are both true: they tend to be medium in coverage, somewhat to moderately buildable, and wear around eight hours.

Presence is a pale beige with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation paired with a soft, creamy texture that was a smidgen dusty.

Confident is a dark burgundy with subtle, warm reddish undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, though not fully opaque, while the consistency had a firmer feel to it, though it was more buildable on the lid in practice. I noticed that this one had a tendency to stick unevenly to bare skin, so it would benefit from a primer. It wore well for ten hours on me. Anastasia Beauty Mark (P, $12.00) is lighter (95% similar). theBalm Friendly (P, $16.00) is darker, cooler (95% similar). Too Faced Charming (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). bareMinerals Ensemble (LE) is darker (90% similar). Sleek MakeUP Stallion (LE, $9.99) is lighter (90% similar).

Golden Gate Matte is a subdued, medium rose pink with warmer undertones and a satin finish. The consistency was firm, which made it difficult to really get color out of the pan, and when it did, it seemed to be chalkier and powdery. It lasted for eight hours, which is all the product promises, but the texture and way it looked on the skin left something to be desired. Tarte Prim (LE, $28.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Becca Wisteria (LE, $32.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (90% similar). Chanel Innocence (160) (P, $45.00) is brighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Piaf (Shade) (P) is brighter (90% similar).

Inner Beauty is a soft, peachy brown with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It’s supposed to be all-over color for face (which seem to be what the brand uses for highlighters), but there’s no real sheen to it this when it is on the skin–possibly because it’s so firm that hardly any product comes off to begin with. It also had a chalkiness to it that just didn’t sit well on skin–it looked like it was just on top but not seamlessly blended. It wore for seven hours on me. NARS Sex Appeal (P, $30.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Catrice I Am Nuts About You (P, $5.99) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). NARS 413 BLKR (Highlighter) (P, $30.00) is cooler (90% similar). Tarte Trustworthy (LE, $28.00) is darker (90% similar). bareMinerals The Spring Fling (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Dior Peach Splendor (LE, $44.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). bareMinerals The Summer Fling (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Makeup Geek Bliss (P, $10.00) is darker (85% similar). Zoeva Shy Beauty (P, $11.80) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Makeup Geek Cherish (P, $10.00) is darker (85% similar). Tarte Moment (LE, $28.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Faux Tan Matte is a muted, medium brown with warm, yellowish undertones and a satin finish. It had medium, buildable coverage with a fairly soft texture that ran a little dusty. It applied well and blended easily along the edges while lasting for seven hours on me. Urban Decay Sun-Kissed (P, $28.00) is brighter (95% similar). Estee Lauder Java Sun (LE, $65.00) is more muted (95% similar). Too Faced Gingerbread (LE) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Golden Rinse (LE, $35.50) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

Laura Mercier Bronze (02) (P, $40.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Laura Mercier Bronze (01) (P, $40.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tarte Park Ave. Princess #2 (LE) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Bon Voyage (P, $8.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Dolce and Gabbana Desert (P, $51.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Be Beautiful Finishing Powder is a light-medium yellow with warm, yellowy orange undertones and a matte finish. The texture was powdery and clumpy–where the powder would come off in chunks, but they would blend out if you worked at it. This was such a strange inclusion to begin with, and the quality is just terrible–it does nothing but make skin look worse: dry, powdery, and noticeably yellower. It seemed to wear fine; it seemed to even prolong the wear of my base products by an hour or so.

bareMinerals GEN NUDE Radiant Lipstick

bareMinerals GEN NUDE Radiant Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to have a creamy, hydrating formula with medium coverage and a “balmy shine.” There are 20 shades, which you’ll find swatched below (don’t ask why on earth I thought it was a smashing idea to swatch 20 lipsticks on top of a bajillion palettes this month). I hope to review these, but I’m not sure on the timing as I need to start reviewing the palettes/kits I’ve posted recently first.

bareMinerals Keep It Glowing Set ($39.00 for 0.58 oz.) consists of a small palette, lipgloss, mascara, and makeup bag. The palette includes four eyeshadows and two cheek products. (I will do lip swatches of the gloss soon–I thought it was their plumping formula, which I react adversely to, so I didn’t swatch it initially.)
