This product fits the bill for the hard-to-find, highly pigmented, metallic gloss that isn't glittery. It wears well and doesn't migrate into lip lines. A great value and a beautifully crafted product. Don't ever discontinue!!
Fun color; not as nice to wear as matte collection
Very cute, but I'm not completely sold from CA
I bought Rose Quartz, and it was noticeably more orange than I expected given the picture --- it's not as orange as Smoky Topaz, but it's definitely not a pure pink. Similar hue to Weekend from the Gen Nude Matte collection.
This lacquer SHINES and shimmers, as promised. It's pretty pigmented, so I didn't need to apply a lot; definitely not just a gloss.
I found it a *little* sticky to wear, especially coming from the velvety goodness that is their matte collection, but honestly it's less sticky than most glosses or lip shimmer I've worn. I've never tried a patent lip lacquer before, so I can't compare it to others. It doesn't do any puckering when your lips touch, so it stays nice and smooth looking.
Overall, it's a fun look but I won't wear it as often due to the stickiness. It's not so bad I'll never wear it though.
Love all of the metallic colors

I actually REALLY like the lip lacquer. I have the color Rose Quartz. The colors are super pretty and the product has a decent wear time. I am absolutely in love with these glosses. It is such a nice change of pace from the typical neutral colors that Bareminerals releases. I would love to add more to my collection, but I'm in college and dropping over $100 in makeup is kind of difficult at the moment.
Love this on my lips

I got my first Gen Nude metalic lip lacquer as a sample gift trial size. I loved the color, look and feel of it, so I found out through customer service the color the sample was and ordered a full size one and a second color of it. Very happy with it.

I have 6 of these and ware one of them every day. No lip liner or lipstick needed! They stay on and are the best colors. Bring back more! ❤❤❤
FINALLY, a beautiful metallic gloss!

PLEASE make this a permanent product!!! Finally a great metallic gloss! Beautiful color, highly pigmented, not glittery, doesn't migrate into lip lines, comfortable. Worth every penny!
AMMH from Washington, DC
Not usually a fan of metallic but wanted to give this a try for the holidays. It did not disappoint! Beautiful color (pink diamond and rubelite) long lasting and non drying. Such a nice change from all the matte liquid lipstick

This is great! I purchased the Bronzite color because I was looking for a coppery color for fall. Such a bold and cool color! It's a bit dark on me but I am fair, so I blot after applying to tone it down. These smell great and feel very comfortable while wearing, and stay on for a long time. I'm looking at getting the plum color next!
This is a staple in my makeup bag
Danielle from Utah
Absolutely love this color. Not sticky.

I love the Gen Nude line from Bare Minerals so I decided to give this line of lip gloss a try. I went ahead and bought the Rose Quartz color online without seeing it in the store, which is a huge risk for me. But low and behold.. I LOVE it!! I'm Hispanic so I have to be careful of which colors I chose but the color and lip gloss is just lovely. It's my new favorite lip gloss. I didn't think I'd like it but now it's a staple in my make up bag!
Stunning and Shiny!
KC from Houston
I've bought 100s of lipglosses and I have to say I finally found the perfect one! This gloss is light, yet very pigmented, not sticky but really is reflective shiny! Not gritty like glitter gloss but still metallic enough without the sandy feel of glitter. I got Plum Garnet and Rubelite, will definitely buy more colors. A must have! Very pleased!
Emma from Midwest
I bought this in Blush Sapphire and absolutely love it! I was worried it might look too metallic or glittery but it doesn't at all. It's very comfortable and hydrating and seems to hide my imperfections really well.
VolGirl from Lexington, SC
Just got it yesterday and couldn't be happier with the color, Smoky Topaz. I've been waiting it seems like forever for fall colors to arrive. The wand however isn't like any of my other lip lacquers. There isn't any foam on one side of it - just plastic, seems a bit flimsy. Not sure if this is a defect in the wand or the way the metallics are. I might drop by the boutique and check with them.
Love this color!
Shauna SD from San Diego, CA
I love the color, it's a great neutral. I use it alone but you can definitely add it over another color for some pop.
Awesome Lip Lacquer!!
BareMineralsUser02 from Lancaster, PA
I recently bought this product in the Blush Sapphire color and absolutely love it! I use it all the time. It's a beautiful neutral color with a metallic shine that doesn't have a tacky feel at all. Lips stay soft and nourished all day. I reccomend this product and hope it becomes a permanent choice.
Please make it permanent. Especially Plum Garnet
Natalie from CT
Use it without a lip liner and it just looks so fresh and beautiful. Even the darker shades.
Absolutely love it!!
Becca from Buffalo, NY
Love the color options, not sticky or too thick, goes on smooth and long lasting!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE!!
Emily from Illinois
I got the shade pink diamond and I LOVE it! Usually with it described as a metallic formula I would probably not go for it but this is actually super wearable! You can layer it on top of a lipstick and make it more bold, or you can wear it on its own and it's gorgeous, metallic-y and glittery yet so wearable. Like I can wear this as an everyday thing! I actually love the applicator, so easy to use and be precise! Anyway I love this product and would 100% recommend.
Should be permanent
MagentasCat from Philadelphia, PA
I bought these in both Rubellite and Pink Diamonds. They are very nice, both worn by themselves or over lipstick. They are not over-the-top shine, just lovely. I did not find them sticky at all. You do need to let them settle and sort of melt into your lips to smooth out. I like these better than most of the regular lip lacquers. They should be added to the permanent shades.
Pretty! Different from original Patent Lacquers
Kgal from undisclosed
I recently purchased this product in the shade Rubellite. It's a lovely fairly deep brownish mauve color on me. (It's honestly deeper than I thought and I think I might prefer a lighter shade). I would describe the texture as leaning more gel/balmy than the original Gen Nude Patent Lacquers (those are sticky and long wearing). These do have some tack to them and that helps them to fade out to a nice lightly moisturizing stain look on me before disappearing. The finish is metallic but not screaming/over-the-top. Worth a look if you can see them in person. At present, I believe these are limited edition.
FINALLY, A NON-MATTE METALLIC LIP
Not Gretchen from Michigan
Listen, nobody hated the metallic matte liquid lipstick trend as much as I did, so I kind of rolled my eyes when I saw this online. Then I read the description and saw that it was a gloss!!! Finally!! I bought the shade Rubellite, a deep brown-toned mauve. The shine is BLINDING and the coverage is FULL. Metallic is the perfect word for it because I literally look like I have metal lips. But in a good way! These also have a pleasant vanilla-y scent and the doe foot is a unique shape that picks up enough product for your entire mouth with just one dip.
