bareMinerals Gen Nude Collection
If you love nude lips, then this new collection from bareMinerals is going to be right up your street. I seem to think that bareMinerals used to make their glosses aggressively minty, but these don’t have even a hint of mint! Whew. Gen Nude is a line up of 40 nude tones lipsticks and glosses – a comprehensive neutral library.
There are 10 shades of Matte, 10 Buttercream Glosses and 16 shades of Radiant Lipstick.
Shades above: Kissyface (matte), Cult (matte), Tantalise (gloss), Fly (gloss), Honeybun (lipstick) and XOX (lipstick). Although I’m a huge gloss fan, it’s actually the lipsticks I really like from this collection – solid pigments with a light sheen that feel very moisturising that they feel more like wearing gloss. There is some transfer. I can’t imagine wearing Cult – it’s a total lip colour wipe out but I like that the brand hasn’t gone boringly safe and there are some shades that are more challenging. Mattes and glosses are £17, and lipsticks are £18 HERE.
