I wear makeup every day but I wouldn’t call myself an expert. I just stay on my lane, do my makeup for not more than 30 minutes and hope it sticks the rest of the day. So when BareMinerals sent me a stick foundation and a couple of matte lipsticks, I felt like they really knew me.
Out of all the stick foundations I’ve tried, the Complexion Rescue Hydrating Foundation Stick SPF 25 is the softest. This vegan and cruelty-free water-based liquid foundation has a satin finish and provides medium (when you use a brush) to full coverage (when you use a blending sponge). For me, this is best applied with a makeup sponge for a seamless application. I like how my skin looks radiant, glowing and “together” when I use this. It feels moisturizing and those would dry or normal skin would enjoy this. For my oily skin, this would be best applied on days when it’s not that humid. I have the shade Ginger and it has a neutral undertone that also helps eliminate some redness on my face.
The BarePro Longwear Lipstick has a matte finish and are very pigmented so one swipe can provide full color. For me, I like dabbing this instead on to build color.
Carnation has a pink tinge that is good for every day.
Cherry is just full-on red that is bolder and brighter.
They last through drinks. I like how even if I don’t apply lip balm beforehand, my lips don’t dry out when using these. In fact, both shades offer moisture on my lips the whole day. They are matte but they don’t settle on my lip lines or make my lips crack. I really like this for every day as it doesn’t make me worry that much, which of course supports my laziness in retouching and reapplying makeup.
Even though my experience trying their skincare products were okay, these makeup products really amazed me, especially the BarePro Longwear Lipstick. I would honestly recommend them especially for those looking for high-quality vegan makeup. Both products are also made without parabens, gluten, fragrance, and phthalates.
