Most Helpful Positive Review Beautiful long lasting color
I love this lipstick for its gorgeous color and long lasting wear! It is the perfect color for casual wear or dressy wear. This lipstick is not sticky and stays on for a long time. It glides on smooth leaving your lips soft and giving you a full even coverage. Overall this lipstick shade is gorgeous, leaves your lips moisturized, and is not sticky when applied.
Most Helpful Critical Review Love the Lipsticks Even Though It Doesn't Do What BM Claims
I was so excited to receive this lipstick for free so I could review. I was even more excited when the shade I received, Confidence, was a one of the shades I prefer to wear on a day to day basis. The shade is a modest pink, not too bright but not a nude either. It's just enough color for my 8-5 job.
First I'll say, I really do like the lipstick and may even purchase more from this line. With that being said, I'm writing my review based on the claims made in the pamphlet I received with the lipstick. Even though I love the lipstick I don't think it measures up to what Bare Minerals is claiming.
First of all, Bare Minerals is claiming that this lipstick gives full color coverage with one swipe. As you can see from my photo this is not true (top swatch is one swipe, middle swatch is 2 swipes, and bottom swatch is 3 swipes). This doesn't bother me but I do wonder how opaque some of the darker, purple colors are and if they will appear streaky on the lips.
Second, Bareminerals claims this lipstick has 2X the hydration and reduces dryness and lines in lips. This does feel nice and buttery on the lips (don't worry, it doesn't slip, slide, or bleed) but I can't say it reduces the appearance of lines in my lips (which BM claims it will do in as little as one week). In fact, after a couple of hours of wearing this, my lips are gritty and flaky even though I exfoliated my lips before applying (close up pic of this included).
As far as longevity, I've been applying this at 7:30 AM and wearing it until I get home at around 5:30 PM. I typically reapply 3-4 times throughout the day. I don't think this is too bad considering I work a job where I am talking to someone 90% of the day and the other 10% is spent sipping coffee.
Overall, I love the lipstick but it doesn't live up to what Bare Minerals is claiming.

It is a great color but a little drying on lips
Love the formula!
SherryR from IL
I love the formula of these lipsticks! I have several shades. I purchased the shade Awareness and it was too dark for my preferences so I exchanged for the shade Memory. For reference, I wear Fairly Light in the Original foundation.
Julia from NY
Easily one of the worst lipsticks I've ever used. As soon as I put it on I knew I didn't like it, but I gave it another few tries. Terrible!
Covered in white specks & wetness
Anggg from TX
I had to return this right after I got it because it not only was covered in white specks but it had moisture all over it.
It looks dark but once you get it on it is a lighter color
Deb from College Station
It is too light
Great color and coverage
Cherie from Bellevue, WA
I know that with mask we are not buying as many lipsticks but I am finding that Buxon as well as Bareminerals have great lipsticks, good color, coverage, and even softens the lips.

Presence - great color
Steph from Chicago
I wear shade 8 in the bare minerals complexion rescue foundation and I mostly stick with pink/mauve colored lipsticks because I think that's what looks best with my style and complexion so I do own quite a few of mauve lipsticks and this shade happens to be my new favorite! Plus the formula is non drying and feels great on the lips. Only downside is that it's not very long lasting so keep it in your purse to reapply when needed.
Danielle F from Florida
Very hydrating and smooth!
Neither Great nor Terrible
Minimalist Maiden from Maryland
This was relatively underwhelming—not especially hydrating or long-lasting. The color (Grace) is very pretty. I'd say it's worth it if you find a shade you love, but otherwise it's nothing too exciting.
LAgirl from Los Angeles, CA
So happy I stumbled upon these lipsticks! Affordable but with great quality, it offers a wide range of color selection from nudes, pinks, berries to reds. I bought 6 colors from this line and love every one of them! Among my favorites are Memory, Presence, and Confidence. They are hydrating, easy to apply, long lasting, and show true colors. Every color is unique and beautiful. I've probably owned 500 lipsticks from Chanel to Maybellines, and I have to say the Mineralist from BareMineral is one of the best - Great color payoff at affordable price. Get it and get multiple!
WendyJ from Kansas City
Great color and doesn't smudge off when I take a drink, etc. Matte/dry coverage without drying out my lips.

Don't order in the summertime

My lipstick arrived melted to the top of the lid. I can't return it because the stores are closed. What now?
Misrepresented color & very dry!

Not the color as on package...matte finish & very dry!
I would get product again

Smooth going on, great color for most outfits!
Love this formula
Nicole from Washington
I got the antique mauve shade, and it beautiful. A single coat lasts a decent amount of time, and looks really nice.
My only complaint is that the product wasn't totally centered in the tube, so the tiniest bit of the product rubs off against the lipstick casing. This is super nit picky though and probably isn't the norm.
Honesty for the win!
Loha94 from KCMO
The BEST shade. Got this as a sample. It legit tastes and smells like raspberries! So smooth on and my lips feel so soft after I put it on. I only have it a 4 because it didn't stay on for as long as I would have loved, but applying it is so fun and feels amazing. Would splurge on this for sure.
anna from New Jersey, USA
this lipstick feel so comfortable and nice while wearing! the color is so pretty too! would recommend!
energy is not an actual red
Crystal from Puyallup
I thought this was gonna be an actual bright red but it's actually a orange color so I was not happy with that
I would buy this product again.
Nancy from Maitland FL
I wanted the color I saw in the print ad I received in the mail, but couldn't match it to the online palette.
Have to shop for lipstick in person I'm afraid.
Yes! It's the most beautiful color on my lips and smoothness
ODW from LA, CA
Everything is terrific about this mineral lipstick. Its color is glam and the texture is luxurious.
Pat from CO
Seems nice but will be going back since it was purchased solely to get my purchase amount over $50 to qualify for the Bare Minerals bonus gift. However, I guess I didn't read the fine print & the entire purchase amount had to be in Bare Minerals items so - no bonus gift. Met all other stipulations but seems kind of deceptive to me so I guess I don't need it after all!
