Bareminerals have a separate range called GEN NUDE featuring some awesome nude based lip products. This range has five different types of formulas like lip pencils, liquid lipsticks, lipsticks, lip lacquers and glosses. I always wanted to try their liquid lipsticks and finally I gave in and got the “bareMinerals GEN NUDE Matte Liquid Lipstick” in the shade “Scandal”. Read on to find out whether this product is a buy or bye.

My Experience with bareMinerals GEN NUDE Matte Liquid Lipstick Scandal:
The packaging of this lippie is simple and cute. It comes in a sturdy transparent tube with a black cap. The tube bears the brand name and the shade name is present at the bottom. There is also an outer black box containing all the product details and ingredient list. The lipstick has a flat paddle brush applicator that helps in the precise application of the product.
This collection features more than twenty shades of nude colors that will suit almost all complexions. “Scandal” is a gorgeous brownish nude shade with a hint of pink. This will be a gorgeous nude for tanned complexions and will be a stunning brown on lighter skin tones.
This liquid lipstick has a sweet vanilla fragrance which is subtle and not over the top. The formula of this lippie is very nice, the consistency is not too thick nor too thin, but it does feel creamy on the lips. The liquid lipstick is very comfortable and feels lightweight on the lips. The formula is non-drying and it is almost transfer-proof.
The lipstick feels moisturizing and doesn’t cling to dry patches on the lips. The pigmentation of this product is also very good. It gives opaque color payoff in one swipe. The staying power of this lipstick is decent, it lasts a good five plus hours and survives light meals. The lipstick fades a bit with oily meals, but that’s not a issue as the reapplication of the lipstick is pretty easy.
Having said all that, lets sum up the pros and cons
