  • "These will always be my favorite liquid lipsticks. Soft, creamy, long lasting. I can eat and drink and it stays put. Some transfer but you can't tell a difference on the lip. So creamy, in fact, that if it does crumble a bit it can be reapplied over top and basically rejuvenate the first application without that weird line of color/texture difference. Also smells like hot chocolate/pudding mix. Yum." in 4 reviews
  • "Guys! This is by far my favorite lip product ever! It’s a shame it’s not spoken about more because it’s truly a hidden gem! I’ve purchased this over and over again. My favorite shade is BO$$. It’s the perfect everyday mauvy pink and it’s so comfortable on the lips. Now, it doesn’t last all day long but that way it fades still looks natural. You can reapply again and again and it’ll never look weird. They’re on sale at Ulta right now for $13 so go grab one!" in 4 reviews
  • "These gen nude matte liquid lips are amazing!! They are super creamy and hydrating on your lips. They don't leave your lips looking dry and cracked. The formula is thicker and therefore if you are looking for a transfer resistant, completely drying matte lipstick this isn't the lip for you. The formula is longish lasting (how idk) since it does transfer easily when eating and drinking. Overall great product" in 3 reviews

Review for: Hemp, Swank, XYZ more...
These matte liquid lipsticks from bareMinerals are some of my favorites! I find all the colors are gorgeous, though my top shades are swank, hemp, and xyz. The pigmentation is fabulous and they glide onto the lips so smoothly. I do find that if I don't line my lips before applying these, however, that they will run a bit. Additionally, while the general color will stay on my lips quite nicely, I have found that the majority of the color wears off quite easily and they seem to take quite a long time to dry. I would potentially recommend covering them with a tissue and using a light layer of setting powder over top.

I absolutely love this formula! It's so soft and feathery light I'm so in love and it smells like cocoa! Applies like butter. My new goal in life is to buy more colors! I even got a FREE lippie for my birthday! I got the Matte Lippie in Boss. As you can see in my pic I did lots of swatching before settling on this gorgeous neutral.

Review for: Friendship more...
This is my first matte liquid lipstick by any brand so I don’t currently have anything to compare it to. However, I love the color. I chose a shade a little darker than I would typically choose for a neutral lip but it’s a nice all-day shade for me. I do have to make sure I’ve done some serious blotting after it dries to prevent transferring onto anything and everything. It wears decent throughout the day without looking horrendous by the end of the workday. That said, I do find it to be quite drying, even when I make sure to moisturize my lips beforehand. I did try to add a clear lip balm in the mid afternoon one day and had to blot most of the remaining product off to avoid more transferring.

Review for: Slay more...
This is a very nice matte liquid lipstick. It did not leave my lips feeling dry and application was easy with the small flat doe-foot wand. I liked the detailed packaging. The lipstick bottle is frosty at the top and goes to a clear glass at the very bottom. The formula is so soft and velvety! It is not transfer-proof but the color is long-lasting. It also has a faint vanilla scent. The shade I have is "Slay", a very light pinky nude. It was a little too pink for my liking and I believe it would be better suited for fairer skin tones.

Review for: XYZ more...
I got one of these as a gift with purchase at the Bareminerals counter in Macy’s, and I really enjoyed the formula because it was matte but full coverage. The flavor was pleasant too. I decided to buy the Send Nudes set with Hemp, XYZ, and Swank. XYZ is my favorite neutral while Swank I like if I want a little more color. Hemp is a little too light brown for me. I do sometimes struggle with getting good coverage without it looking flaky after a short while, so I frequently blend it with other lip products to achieve better results.

Review for: Slay more...
Such a great color. They have so many nude options! I love that this matte lipstick isn't drying. It does not fully dry and stays a bit tacky but is not sticky or uncomfortable. They are not super pigmented - I can see my natural lip color peeking out in the center of my lips which isn't a problem because it's a nude shade to begin with. It lasts several hours (while drinking, eating, etc). The only thing is it doesn't smooth out my lips which is odd because it's not super drying. You can see the lines in my lips, exaggerating them somewhat

Review for: Wink more...
The packaging is so beautiful. I love the frosted bottle, very classy. I love the formula, very creamy, definitely matte, stays for a long time. The color however, is not what I was expecting. The picture doesn’t fully show, but it was super white and frosty when I put it on my lips. I topped it with another creamy matte lipstick that gave my face some life again. bareMinerals Gen Nude® Matte Liquid Lipstick

Review for: Om more...
First off, let me just say this formula was not at all what I was expecting, but turns out I liked it was better. On is my absolute favorite everyday shade. It a pinky- nude brown with a warm undertone and it’s perfect for a everyday day wear that’s comfortable on the lips. It doesn’t completely dry down as liquid lips normally do, I didn’t mind it because I was getting out of that trend anyway. But I just feel they shouldn’t advertise it the way that they do. Maybe call it a whipped matte lipstick as it has a creamy, whipped formula that doesn’t not dry down.

Review for: Infamous more...
I love this color on me. It’s a great nude, mauve pink that’s very flattering. The formula isn’t over drying, which is nice for a liquid lipstick. I bought and used 2 bottles of it. However, it isn’t super long lasting. Also both my bottles leaked while laying on its side. I think lipstick bottles should be able to handle being on its side and not leaking, considering they’re usually in a purse. I did not like that at all, but other than that I liked the feel and look of it!

This is my absolute favorite Liquid Lipstick because it’s very long-wearing, has a cream-to-matte color with a smooth texture. It’s very full coverage and has a formula that glides over lips effortlessly, then dries to a long-wearing matte finish. The formula is moisturizing and it’s matte finish isn’t dry. And it even has a subtle vanilla scent. The flexible applicator delivers full coverage in one sweep. It’s very easy to blend and layer colors and finishes for infinite looks! I also love that this liquid lipstick is gluten-free and was not tested on animals and is formulated without petrolatum, so I’m confident in recommending it to everyone!

Are the swatches true to color? I know the color will vary depending on skintone so I'm curious if cookie is actuall like the swatch. I have a fair complexion with cool neutral undertones. bareMinerals Gen Nude® Matte Liquid Lipstick
