No smudge no budge: BareMinerals BarePro Longwear Lipsticks

I would never say no to trying out a new lipstick.

Lipsticks are truly that one item that no matter how many you have, you can always have more. I probably have at least 100 lipsticks in my collection and there’s probably been at least 1,000 of them that have rotated through my collection throughout all these years of blogging.

New to the office? The BareMinerals BarePro Longwear Lipsticks (C$25). These lipsticks actually surprised me since I thought they were just your plain ‘ol cream lipstick. I didn’t really know anything about them, but was pleasantly surprised once I got to trying them out.

The BareMinerals BarePro Longwear Matte Lipsticks is a collection of 20 shades that is a full-coverage, mineral-rich lipstick with a soft matte finish that lasts up to eight hours. You wouldn’t know this just by looking at it, or by applying it, but once it’s on it settles thanks to its Mineral Lock Longer Technology, making it transfer-proof, waterproof, smudge-proof, budge-proof, kiss-proof and cocktail-proof. Yes, that’s a lot of proofs.

Since BareMinerals is a vegan, natural line, these lipsticks contain baobab oil, which has antioxidants and vitamin C to help moisturize the lips; sunflower seed and jojoba waxes to help hydrate, nourish, and prevent moisture loss; and raspberry and blackcurrant seed oils, to provide antioxidant benefits to help defend against environmental stressors.

I received five of the 20 shades, and although I got a handful of nudes there are also an abundance of bright colours to choose from as well. When you first apply this lipstick, the colour is super creamy, so it really came as a shock to find out that it settles down and stays there. I was totally expecting a normal lipstick formula, one that you feel on the lips. This one sticks to your lips but is still hydrating, making it a comfortable wear.

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by these and will definitely be rotating them into my collection of everyday lipsticks. If you are looking for a new lipstick that won’t budge but don’t like the liquid lipstick formula, then I highly recommend you give these a shot. I think they’ll surprise you as much as they did for me.
