My Experience with bareMinerals BarePro Long Wear Matte Lipstick Boysenberry:
I love slim lipsticks and these bareMinerals lipsticks attracted me in the first look. The lipstick comes housed in a sleek, matte black tubes with a color-coded strip in the middle. The lipstick bullet is slightly slanted and flat edged which allows precise application of the lipstick.
bareMinerals BarePro Long Wear Matte Lipstick comes in 20 shades, ranging from n*des, neutrals, pinks to bright bold shades, though they have a wide variety of colors only 8 shades were launched here in Australia. bareMinerals BarePro Long Wear Matte Lipstick Boysenberry is a muted neutral mauve berry shade that will will flatter fair to tan skin tones.
This lipstick is made with the wonderful blend of antioxidant of Baobab and Berry oils, sunflower seed, and jojoba wax to protect, nourish and condition your lips. This is a highly pigmented mineral-rich lipstick with a with a comfortable matte formula. The product is creamy and glides on the lips effortlessly. They dry down to a super matte finish and locks in place without moving or transferring.
Unlike some of the other matte formula, this lipstick doesn’t dry out your lips. I love that this lipstick is formulated without mineral oil, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, and it contains less than one percent of synthetic fragrances. It’s also gluten, talc, and cruelty-free. The lasting power on this lipstick is also impressive and may transfer slightly with oily meals but the that isn’t a problem since reapplication is a breeze.
Overall, I am completely blown by this formula and this lipstick comes in my top five lipstick picks.
