Friday Favorites: Bare Minerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipcolor

Due to the Writing Challenge last month, I didn’t do any Friday Favorites posts and it feels like forever since my last one so I am super excited to share this one with you!

One look that I really love is bold lips, but I have never really had the confidence to pull it off. I keep trying different lips products but I always feel like a kid who got into an adult’s makeup bag and I end up washing it off before I even leave the house. Due to this I usually end up wearing gloss (thank you Fresh Sugar!), or if I’m feeling like living on the edge, a tinted lip gloss. Wild, I know.

However, over the last few weeks I have managed to slightly break out of my “terrified of lip color” shell and find a product that I’m absolutely obsessed with – Bare Minerals GEN NUDE Matte Liquid Lipcolor

These liquid lipsticks have a full color creamy matte finish and are infused with hydrating ingredients so that they don’t dry out your lips. Their colors suit all skin tones and shades and all of their products are formulated without sulfates and parabens.

Did I mention that they all smell like cocoa?!

There are 20 shades to choose from in total and I have the following three favorites:

Slay – described as a “dusty light mauve” this is definitely a barely there nude that can be worn all day and is especially perfect for errand days where you want to wear something but don’t want to look “done”


Swag – slightly darker in colour than it’s sister Sway, Swag is a “blushing mauve”. This shade is great for when you don’t want your lips to be the focus of your makeup look, but you still want something there. It’s a great all-around-every-occasion-outfit-shade


Boss – this is the one that really brings me out of my shell! Bare Minerals calls this one a “dirty pink beige” and this description is perfect! It definitely makes your lips the focus of your look and screams Fall!


Bare Minerals GEN NUDE Matte Liquid Lipsticks are available from Sephora for $23. For extra long lasting results I use it with Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Primer (Sephora – $21)
