New: bareMinerals Gen Nude Launch

For those who love matte nude lip colors – you’re in luck. bareMinerals have launched their Gen Nude collection of lip colors, dedicated to the fresh, sassy nude shades we’re all loving right now.

Although nude lipstick shades are proving to be overly popular right now, it can be hard to find the right tone to match your skin colorings. For example, those bland skin-colored nudes or pale peaches can look super classy on some people, but on the other hand, they can make some of us look completely washed out.

The bareMinerals Gen Nude range has been developed to produce an array of shades which compliment all skin and lip tones. There’s a lot of nude to be had than just those creamy beige shades – we’re talking about silky smooth, deep neutrals as well as those edgy, more frosted shades.

bareMinerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lip Color

These long-wearing, moisturizing, full-coverage cream-to-matte lip colors come in a range of statement nude shades for all skin tones. Although the lip color appears glossy in the tube and on the applicator, the rich matte liquid glides on silky smooth to reveal a fresh matte finish. The flexible paddle applicator delivers the full coverage color in just one sweep, with a strong pigment applied immediate.

When bareMinerals say ‘matte’ and ‘nude’, they really do mean matte and nude. The result resembles a lipstick result, with a nude, opaque style texture and finish. What is so fantastic about this range is that the array of available colors give you so much scope to experiment with your favorite shades, yet keeping them stripped back from being to brassy, too bold, and too glossy.

The fresh, new shades include the following (to name a few!) which also have some very cool names:

  • Cookie
  • Cult
  • Extra
  • KissyFace
  • Weekend
  • Scandal
  • Swag

bareMinerals Gen Nude Radiant Lipstick

These, creamy, moisturizing lipsticks also come in a range of flattering nude shades for all skin tones, and give a radiant balmy shine. These Gen Nude™ Radiant Lipsticks boast an array of dreamy, creamy colors all with medium coverage. Plus, they are formulated with lip-loving natural oils and butters to moisturize, smooth and condition lips, with a subtle vanilla scent. Good enough to eat!

These lipsticks come in a classic, timeless black casing, twisting up to reveal the brilliant colors. As with the liquid lip colors, they are really easy to apply, where just one stroke leaves a high pigmented look.

Here at SkinStore, we’ve been trialing these fantastic new lip colors out ourselves to see how they look with our skin tones. One of our favorites so far has to be shade ‘weekend’ in the Gen Nude Liquid Lip Color. It’s a war peach shade, with touches of apricot and light pink. When applied, it melts in with the natural lip color, adapting a little bit softer and giving a matte finish smooth color.

We’ve swatched the ‘Weekend’ shade below, followed by a few more of our favorites!
