So happy I discovered this lipstick the other day. I've ran into so many issues with various lipsticks making my lips breakout after every use. This stuff did not let me down! It applies smoothly and my lips feel moisturized throughout its wear. The best part is that I don't have to worry about an icky rash appearing after application. It's my little miracle.
I am always looking for good lipsticks that last and that don't dry out my lips. I assumed Bare Escentuals would be good, since its natural and everything. However i was disappointed.
Price- The price was reasonable for a lipstick-$15 at sephora. Some lipsticks are definitely much more expensive, and some much cheaper, so no complaints on the price.
Texture- When I first put the lipstick on, it was very creamy but thick. It was kind of bothersome because I noticed having it on more than I have with other lipsticks. The lipstick has a shimmer, and it feels sort of grainy.
Color- The shade I picked (Bavarian Creme) is a light berry pink color, but it didnt show that much on my lips, just the shimmer did. Also, the shimmer and texture looks cakey on my lips which I hate on lipsticks.
Staying power- since the color wasnt pigmented to begin with (or maybe I picked a color that wasn't the most pigmented out of all of them) it soon looked like i wasn't wearing any lipstick, just like my lips were chapped. Although my lips didnt actually become chapped, they did start to feel dry after about an hour.
Overall, I didn't love this lipstick and I wouldn't buy it again.
