bareMinerals 100% Natural Lip Color – Gingersnap

bare-escentuals-bareminerals-100-natural-lipcolor-gingersnapI am on a lifelong quest for the perfect orangey-brown lipstick.  I saw the exact shade I want on a salesclerk once a very long time ago and I should have asked her then what she was wearing, and I didn’t.  I shall regret that move for the rest of my natural life as I purchase umpteen tubes of brown lipsticks with my fingers crossed.
That said, this is a very nice golden/peachy brown color that I definitely will wear.  I’ve also never tried a bareMinerals lip color product, and this one is a pleasant surprise.  It glides on easily and lasts for a long while.  Unlike most lipsticks, this one did not dry out my lips and I can still feel the moisturizing ingredients on my lips two hours later.
After reading the description on Ulta, I can see why my lips still feel nourished and moist.  “bareMinerals by Bare Escentuals 100% Natural Lipcolor moisturizes lips with a blend of jojoba, macadamia, sesame and coconut oils that delivers rich color that glides on and keeps lips perfectly hydrated and supple throughout the day. Brazilian cupuaca butter and Tahitian monoi oil wrap lips in a cushion of comfort and provide deep and long-lasting hydration. Pomegranate seed oil and Vitamin E help nourish and restore lips, while barley lipids replenish your lips natural lipid barrier while improving smoothness and texture.”
As a matter of fact, this is going into my make-up bag right now to replace my current nude/brown lip color.  I like it.  It’s a nice little find as far as formula, but my search for the perfect orange/brown continues.

Cost:  $15.00 on Ulta

Packaging:  Matte black plastic tube that twists up.  It’s kind of a bulky tube and is not as streamlined as others.

Scent/Taste:  None

Bear in Mind:  I ordered this from Ulta.com.  While researching this post, I was unable to find this line on the official bareMinerals site.

I Wish:  You know what I wish.  ::sniffle::
