bareMinerals Statement Lip Collection SWATCHES 2017 | Lillee Jean

           We have an unexpected blog post here today, my loves. Sephora, and bareMinerals, cordially, sent me their entire, and NEW, Statement Lip collection as a gift. THREE WORDS – OH MY GOSH. The first part of this blog post will be on my initial thoughts on the packaging, and the product’s themselves (color wise). The second part will be on the formula, and my final thoughts put together! I must say, I am PULLED BACK. At first, I thought Sephora sent me a random mail box…little did your mermaid know, it was jam packed with over 25 NEW bold shades, in 10 finishes.

                 The liquid lipsticks are in a typical bareMinerals sleek container with a black top, medium sized bottle, and a clear plastic see-through center. I personally love this, because I easily can see the given colors when seeking a lip color, come the morning!  The Liquid Lipcolor’s are said to be produced with a silky formula, that glides right on, that is moisture drenched, and dries down to a long-wearing SHINE-FREE finish. Basically, this is a totally matte liquid lipstick collection! Now, I have tried MANY liquid lipsticks before, so be aware I’m cultured in this area, and I might do a few pulled comparisons throughout this blog post.


               Here is a copied, and pasted ingredients list of “LUXE”, to give you loves an idea of what is in this beauty product! Each color might have one-five different ingredients used, but this will giva ya’ a general idea. Anything in BOLD is benefical and hydrating for the lips!


“Primer-infused Ingredients: Gives a gorgeous soft focus effect, and helps with transfer resistance; helps prevent feathering or bleeding.

-Plant-based Waxes: Bring a hydrating feel to lips.

            Each color is photographed below, along with a description of the product color, and my thoughts on the formula of each color, since we all know formula’s might fluctuate as the color ingredients change! Just beforehand, know each product preformed the same, and really has me SHELL-SHOCKED. Continue reading on ;)!

~All colors were photographed with NO makeup, and BLACK clothes, and with NO saturation edits. This is pure sunlight, and pure beauty of the colors!

 ‘Fresh’, Matte Liquid Lipcolor is a warm, and bold pink! This applied very smoothly, and I noticed it had one swipe pigment. Compared to Anastasia’s Liquid Lipstick, this formula is MUCH comfier, more lightweight, and has a Nyx Matte Lip Cream feel to it, just with added benefits (I prefer this, to be quite honest, which says a lot since I was a HUGE NYX MLC supporter for a while).

 ‘OMG’, Matte Liquid Lipcolor is a BEAUTIFUL vivid violet! This color is rather interesting because if looked at one way, it has strong BLUE undertones, but if looked at another angle, it actually is very warm, and extremely Summer ready. I love how this didn’t feather, and was VERY easy to apply thanks to the doe-foot applicator.

‘LUXE’, Matte Liquid Lipcolor is a dirty pastel pink! Not my color, but it would look gorgeous on those with cooler undertones, or with darker skin. The texture goes on like SILK, and dries down matte within 3 minutes! With most light colors, you yield awful coverage, but not with ‘Luxe’! It had pigment from the first swipe ;).

‘Shameless’, Matte Liquid Lipcolor is a neon hot pink! This is basically your typical “Barbie” pink. Very gorgeous color, and very easy to manipulate. I feel anyone, with any skin color can pull this baby off!

 ‘FIRE’, Matte Liquid Lipcolor is a fiery orange red, which I like to call “crushed tomato”. This is probably my MOST favorite shade out of all the liquid lipcolors, understandably so! Everyone needs a little Fire in their life.

 ‘Flawless’, Matte Liquid Lipcolor is a muted plum, but on me a muted mauve! For those of you in on mauvey lip colors, snag this baby fast, because mark my words, ‘Flawless’ will be a top seller for bareMinerals. It instantly lightens to complexion, and brights focus to the eyes!

 ‘Vip’, Matte Liquid Lipcolor is a crimson red! This extremely bold color has a “fruity” appearance to it, and adhered to my lips WONDERFULLY. I always mess up with applying red lipstick, since any imperfections of application are noticeable, but thanks to the wand, this was a 123 experience. LOVE, VIP. Reminds me of strawberries, and smells like vanilla!

 ‘Naughty’, Matte Liquid Lipcolor is a medium toned rustic red! I know bareMinerals describes this as an oxblood, which has a brown tone to it, but I see more of a rusty undertone to this color. Regardless, it’s stunning, and easily a favorite. I noticed by this point with testing all the colors, there was no sticky residue, and it remained silky ALL day!

                 ‘Juicy’, Matte Liquid Lipcolor is a POPPY red color! This color was SO stunning, I didn’t want to take it off!! It’s sorta muted, sorta not, sorta red, sorta watermelon like…but one thing I can say it’s all sorts of SEXY.

  ‘Devious’, Matte Liquid Lipcolor is a rich burgundy, though it leans more like a rich plum on my skin tone! I did notice this required two coatings of product, but at the end of applications it looked effortless, and smoldering. I love how this color wasn’t so bold, just a beautiful deep Summer color!

All the lipcolors swatched on my arm in natural lighting, not in front of the sun, with no edits!

The colors are in the same order that you see the photos above in.

               Now, let’s move onto the Statement Luxe Shine Lipstick! These babies are SO up my alley. I like color that I can control. These are hydrating, and amazing for warm Summer days when you just want a dash of color. Interestingly, these can be bold, yet also they can be soft! Coming in TWO finishes, see a sample ingredients list below provided by Sephora.com, and BareMinerals.com. Also, scroll down further for swatches!

                    ‘Tease’, Luxe Shine Lipstick is a peachy pink laced with gold pearl, thus this comes in a shimmer finish, though it’s nearly matte, and the gold hits light in JUST the right spots! I fell in love with this peachy color from the moment I opened the tube. Anyone with neutral, or warm skin tones NEEDS this staple. The formula glides on like a bottle of coconut oil, and stays that way throughout one’s wear time!

                 ‘Biba’, Luxe Shine Lipstick is a clean bubblegum pink! This really contrasted wonderfully against my eyes. Unlike Tease, Biba comes in a satin finish, thus it’s hydrating, yet also in between the lines of matte! Biba will stop all action in a room, as soon as ya’ put it on. (color is also VERY true to what you see online, which is a plus in my book)

‘Rebound’, Luxe Shine Lipstick is a neutral medium toned pink! I think of this as a petal shade, that will work on the warmest of undertones, and even neutral to cool undertones, too. It is very beautiful, and long-lasting to my surprise which shocked me SINCE hydrating formulas don’t always mean long-wearing.

                  ‘Flash’, Luxe Shine Lipstick is a warm coral red! This actually looks like crushed fruit, in a juicy mix to me, rather so much as a coral shade.

                ‘Alpha’, Luxe Shine Lipstick is a satiny raspberry pink! Reminding me of my favorite hibiscus flower, Alpha is a showstopper and had no issues of bleeding or fading throughout my 3 hour wear time.

‘SRSLY RED’, Luxe Shine Lipstick is a TRUE and bright red! Besides SRSLY loving the lipstick’s name, when seeking a red lipstick, every woman wants one that is hydrating and FULL of color. Well, let me tell ya’. This had one swipe pigment, 5-hour wear, and DID NOT FEATHER even without lip liner, and a lip primer! That’s pretty darn amazing, considering red’s fade quick, and hydrating formulas + red always equal disaster.

                  ‘Hustler’, Luxe Shine Lipstick is a garnet red, with a red pearl (I saw a tiny amount of gold pearl)! GUYS. This warm toned red, is something every woman with warm undertones should have in their collection! I was pulled back…quite literally, when I stepped into the sunlight, and saw the pearl. While it is subtle, and DOES last the entire wear time, it isn’t obnoxious (far from it), and is so sensational of a color!
