Bare Minerals Gen Nude Radiant Lipstick

BareMinerals Gen Nude Lipstick
Here in Mantra $20

Have I gone daft??? Three things;  1) Are BareMinerals and BareEscentuals the same brand???  I still don't know... 2) It took me 15 minutes to figure out that "Gen" alludes to "Generation".  I'm pretty, pretty sure, nude lipstick has been around since Ultima II launched The Nakeds, but perhaps, to a new "Gen", everything old is new again. 3) Do you ever think it's a good idea for a company to describe a color as " dirty mauve"??? It almost made we want to wipe it off and go return it!

Silly, daft me, I was at Ulta today gift shopping, and actually hoped to replace a shade I love, from BareSomebody, called Marvelous Moxie Chase Your Dreams.  No such luck, Gen Nude is the new iteration of Marvelous Moxie. ( to the rescue, I found it online.)

All gripes aside, Bare Minerals Gen Nude Radiant Lipstick,is a very buttery, balmy lipstick with rich, medium coverage. I knew my pick, the "dirty" Mantra was more brown hued then Chase Your Dreams, but thought it would be a pretty winter shade, so I'm glad I purchased it.

With 20 shade offerings, if you prefer a nude lip, this well priced lipstick is a great option.  It feels great on and considering how creamy it is, has good wear. I had been curious about Gen Nudes, since seeing that they had made Allure's Best of Beauty 2016 list, in the Lipstick Category.

Here more details for those of you who like the specifics:
