Today, I am reviewing a liquid lip color from one of my most favorite brands – Bare Minerals. I am already in love with the “Original Foundation” and Mineral Veil. So, I thought of giving the lip color a try. I laid my hands on this beautiful warm peach color called “Courage.” Let’s see if it lives up to my expectation.
$16 for 4 ml/0.13 Fl. Oz.
What it is?
The innovative hydrating glaze of our Pretty Amazing Lipcolor cocoons your lips in opaque high-impact lipcolor. The cushiony texture, insatiable shine and seriously polished appearance will propel you into an elevated state of gorgeousness. And our precision applicator handles like a racecar, cornering, sculpting and accentuating every curve of your luscious lips for enduring color with real staying power. Pretty Amazing.
My Experience with Bare Minerals Pretty Amazing Lip Color – Courage:
Packaging: This lip color comes housed in an opaque tube, with the color shown in the base of the tube. Look wise, the packaging looks chic, but you can’t see how much lip color is left in the tube. The applicator is a flexible doe footer with a bit narrow shape towards the front of the applicator. This helps in providing precision during application. I find the flexible applicator very helpful as it feels like the color hugs my lips during application.
Color: Courage is a beautiful warm peach color with brown in it. It will flatter most of the warm undertones. This is also a good color for the smoky eyes look.
Texture: The color goes opaque in just one coat. If you want to increase the intensity, you might want to put another layer. The color just hugs the lips and sits on your lips like a second skin. It feels very comfortable on the lips making it feel hydrated. I have worn it on not-so-good lipstick days, but I fared well. It didn’t accentuate the flakes at the same time, makes the lips look healthy and plumped.
Longevity: Due to its glossiness, it can’t survive heavy meal and gets wiped out. On its own, it survives 3-4 hours with light snacks in between. It does not stain the lips.
Pros of Bare Minerals Pretty Amazing Lip Color – Courage:
- Travel-friendly packaging.
- Makes the lips look healthy and plumped up.
- Lightweight and non-sticky formula.
- Doesn’t dry out the lips.
- Does not stain the lips.
Cons of Bare Minerals Pretty Amazing Lip Color – Courage:
- Doesn’t survive a meal.
- Availability in India (some online sites ship it to India).
Would I Repurchase Bare Minerals Pretty Amazing Lip Color – Courage?
I would love to try some pinks from this range as I have seen a SA wearing it and it was looking amazing on her.
I don’t mind replying the color through the day as it feels feather light on my lips, plus I can use this stuff even on the not-so-good lippy days 😛
