This post is well overdue as bareMinerals released the GEN NUDE collection last summer however I feel like this line is quite under rated and doesn’t get talked about enough. And seeing as the nude lip trend is still going strong into 2017, now might be the time that you are looking to add some new nudes to you makeup bag.
The GEN NUDE collection consists of 4 different products; the Matte Liquid Lip Color, the Buttercream Lip Gloss, the Radiant Lipstick and the Under Over Lip Liner.
Matte Liquid Lip Color
Perhaps one of the most moisturizing matte lip colors available, this one is so comfortable to wear. One of the things I love about this formula is that you can layer it on without drying out your lips or you can pat it down for a more subtle look.
Buttercream Lip Gloss
Sheer and not sticky, these are a really nice light weight lip gloss. Definitely not long wear but if you are looking for a comfortable, pretty gloss then these are great. I’m not too crazy about the scent personally, it’s quite sweet and smells like a cookie. The colour selection is great though and I like the mauve based ones especially.
A beautiful sheer, almost lip balm textured lipstick. Perfect for the “no makeup” makeup days. Also not long lasting but easy to reapply on-the-go. The shade Tutu is so pretty – very subtle but just boosts your natural lip colour.
I haven’t tried the Under Over Lip Liner as I hardly ever wear lip liners but the online reviews seem to be mixed. People either love them for the creamy smooth application or they found them too hard and drying.
