Pretty Amazing Lipcolor - null
I need to write a review for this!
I have two sample of vivacious and I never paid attend to them until last week. I don't like the color ( a little bit too pinky red?) but i am so amazed by the coverage and staying power. It's not a creamy lipstick like marvelous moxie (which i like too). It is more like a lip stain (like ysl or dior lip fluid). My lip color is kinda dark so the normal gloss/lip stain doesn't work that well. (Yes, including expensive ysl), but I am just happy to find this one. I don't need to apply anything on my lip before it and WOW pretty amazing!
My only complain would be about the colors. They are not that identical. I have vivacious, courage, and allure, and I can tell they are different but... not that much.
Based on the sale price, I guess bareMinerals is trying to discontinue this line (?). I hope you come out with sth better soon.
I found buttercream marvelous moxie gloss in ulta and hope it will give a better coverage than the normal marvelous moxie.
I am SO impressed with this. I got one color, Rouge, in my mystery box, and then bought ALL the other colors. And I am not someone who does that! Unlike the other reviewers, I feel it goes on sticky- but I'm comparing to lipstick. This feeling soon goes away as it settles onto lips, and then it has an interesting neutral waxy feel, like good lip balm. The brights are bright (but a couple layers make them pop more), and the reds all seem to have blue tones that make my teeth look super white. I apply with a lip brush- I find the applicator difficult to deal with. But the results are STUNNING. Even on super-dry winter lips, this stuff TACKS DOWN the flakes and roughness and eliminates the appearance of those things; and then it hydrates so they don't come back. (!) No more lip exfoliation and prep for me! I actually think that when this lip color settles down, it looks fairly matte, or maybe satin-y, not patent and shiny as you might expect. But I like that - if I want shiny I can always throw Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss on top. It also doesn't have a taste, even a "makeup-y" one, so it is SUPER wearable. GET THESE WHILE YOU STILL CAN. Outstanding product!
This lipcolor is great for day or night time. I don't always do my eyes to leave the house, but I always wear foundation and this lipcolor! The product needs a few mins. to dry, or blot it on tissue. If you give it time to dry, it seems to keep that moist look better.!
Vibrant True-to-Color Creamy-Goodness
The colors match what you see when you order. The product goes on the lips creamy, not sticky. It is a cross between a lipstick and a gloss. It is moisturizing and the color stays on forever! Got so many compliments, makes me feel like a movie-star.
Will continue to purchase Bare-Minerals/Bare-Escentuals products as long as I live. I have turned so many of my friends into Bare-Minerals girls as well. Never makes me break-out, always stays natural on the face, and honestly has improved the quality of my skin. Thank you for making a product that amplifies so many women's natural beauty ;-)
Love love love... A Must Buy!!
Long lasting non drying and very smooth... Can't live without. I thought they were discontinued and I am so happy they are not.. Please keep in the line.. My favorite lipstick .. I am a true bare minerals girl... I have been for the last 10 years. My career has been an account executive for cosmetic lines and this line is my favorite... Doesn't break me out. Great quality.. Love Leslie on Qvc... There is nothing like bare essentials! It make my skin healthier by wearing the make up... Love .. Thank you... So if anyone is on the fence you must try it.. I know my products from being in the Industry for over 20 years.. This line I truly love all products.. Ok.. I don't like taste of moxie lip gloss.. But what cosmetic line can you say you love all product except one... Great job Bare Escentuals.. Keep on Rocking great make up and skin care:-) aloha!
I ordered these when they were packaged in a set of 4 mini's. I don't know if it's bc they were mini but from the time I received them to trying them 3 of them were too dried out to wear. The one color that wasn't was a pretty color. Wish they all were good. The shades looked very pretty. Too bad I couldn't get to use them all.
PLEASE MAKE MORE COLORS!!
I absolutely love these! I love courage for an every day look. These are nice and creamy, but the applicator is a bit awkward. I typically use the covered lip brush by bareMinerals and my lips look flawless and last forever!
The color shows up well but looks a little dull when first applied. Once settled about 5min or so it is more vibrant and feels natural on lips.
These are absolutely the best thing sense makeup the colors the texture the packaging I'm so in love with them wish they weren't being discontinued :(
Natural lip glosses please!
How about bringing back the natural lip glosses!!! Really can't understand why any company can't stay "green" when that is what us customers want! We are digesting these products so how good can they be if they're not natural?!!! PLEASE CONSIDER as I really love, love the natural lip glosses and the great shades!
Love it. My fave is ambition!
These are awesome. The colors are very pretty and go with all skin tones (I just got Ambition and I never thought I could wear a bold pink, but turns out I can!). The product goes on very smoothly, the brush is soft, and the color lasts for a long time. It's not goopy or sticky--just smooth and lush. Love these.
Perfect Hybrid Lipcolor
I own these in ambition and courage and they are the most beautiful shades! I love to use courage as a fall/winter lip and ambition in the summer for an extra pop of color. They are extremely pigmented and long lasting. I love how it looks like a shinier lipstick. The applicator is a sponge tip, so I usually use my covered lip brush to apply it evenly and neatly.
Va Va Voom
I love reds, I love the bold, flamboyant color. This is my favorite red lip color ever.
It glides on smooth, and it feels so silky while I wear it. And the color lasts forever.
I just adore this color. I have very fair skin, but with cool, blue and pink tones to my skin. This color suits me, but also suits my sister, who was adopted from China. It pops against her skin tone, same as it does with mine, despite the yellow/gold tones in her skin being so different from my skin tone.
In fact when I bought it, in store, the gal said it was "the perfect red" for almost anyone. And while I'm sure there are some unlucky ladies who this color doesn't suit, it certainly is the perfect red for me.
Cross between a lipstick and a lip gloss
I have always had trouble applying my lip stick evenly. Also, although I like the color saturation that you can get from lipstick I don't like the dry, cakey feeling of it on my lips. I LOVE wearing lip gloss, but at times I really want more pow with the color. The Pretty Amazing Lipcolor collection is a nice alternative. It has nice, saturated color that glides on like a lipgloss. Love it!
Not My Cup of Tea
I have gotten 8 different shades of the Pretty Amazing lip colors as parts of sets from the Beauty Rush or Last Chance sales, and I have tried every single one, waiting for the one that will change my mind.
I will agree with everyone who is saying that this product is creamy, hydrating, long-lasting, etc. All that was true for me as well, but honestly I cannot get this product to look good on me. All other BE lipsticks and glosses I have tried are just a quick swipe and I'm done & ready to go. This doesn't seem to apply as evenly for me and doesn't blend into my lips as well as the other products. This wouldn't be as big of a deal to me except that one of the selling points is that this is opaque - it is made to stand out. If needs to look perfect, it will make you look great. But having an opaque, bright pink or red color on your lips that isn't perfectly in place makes you look like you've been playing in mommy's make up drawer.
I have given a couple of them to my roommate though, who loves them. Maybe it's just my and my lips causing the issue, but applying lip color should not be hard.
One of the other reviewers said that she can mix this with gloss to get her desired shade/effect, and I will begin doing that. I do like the way this feels on my lips, but I just don't care for the look of it on its own.
A good formula that is definitely a cross between lipstick and gloss. Not crazy about these colors. Had to mix with other glosses to get the shade and effect I was looking for.
Bring back the 100% natural lip products! The Moxie products caused me to have an allergic reaction, making my lips very dry, flaky and itchy. I'm sad that you are going away from making natural products.
Sharpening issue resolved
I luv luv luv this product and have read the other reviews on the complaint on the softness/sharpening issues. To help everyone out please let me tell you what I have found to resolve this problem. I keep my pencil in the freezer. This keeps it hard enough to sharpen the point but soft enough to be able to apply it to your eye smoothly. I know this sound like a bit of an inconvenience but I am willing to trade this off to the fact that this product stays on my eyes all day. I have very oily eyelids and through many, many years of searching(even the high-end dept store companies)this is the ONLY one that stays true to the claim that it stays put. I hope this little hint helps.
This is PRETTY AMAZING
I have tried a few products from Bare Minerals in the past but I have not tried most of their new products. I was sent the sample size in the mail of Confidence and automatically fell in love! I HAD to get the normal size! I was complemented on it that day and knew I would be wearing it in the future! It has fantastic pigmentation and gloss without making it feel like you have honey on your lips. One thing I did notice was that the normal size had more purple pigmentation than the sample size, which was more pink. TOTALLY RECOMMENDED!
Perfect Texture and Coverage
I first tried this lipcolor at the store and immediately fell in love with this. I tried in Confidence and it really suits my medium skin tone (wearing medium tan foundation) without looking too bold. The color is really opaque without too much shine like lip gloss which I hate since it will make my lips appear too thick. It is pretty long wearing if I don't eat and it is really hydrating. Definitely try this one and you'll love it. Plus, it is affordable compare to other brands.
The best ever!
This is hands down the best lip product out there. It has shine like a gloss, but coverage like a lipstick. I have 5 colors and have reordered. It does not dry out your lips and has staying power for hours. I outline my lips with the tip, and fill in with the flat part. PLEASE DON'T EVER DISCONTINUE!
I received the "Fearless" as a gift with purchase. I love it. Stays on for a long time and isn't sticky.
I will definitely buy more.
I got this in Strength. I'm not a lipstick person but am fair skinned and like color, but glosses don't always provide enough. The color with the Pretty Amazing is great. This goes on like a gloss but colors like a lipstick, opaque but with a sheen. The only thing I don't like is the applicator. It needs to be smaller so you get less product. The way it is now, I end up scraping the excess color off and only applying with the side of the applicator and even that gets gloppy. I would definitely buy more if there was a design change, but for now I'll stick with Moxie.
Pretty Color but Messy
Love how moisturizing this lip color is. It doesn't show dry lips nearly as bad as lipstick and lipstain will. I bought strength and it is definitely a bright red.
My only problem with this lip color is that it is a bit messy. It was hard for me to put on without accidentally smearing it or getting my hair in it. If I blot it, it's much better but then you lose a lot of vibrancy when you do that.
How is everyone else applying it so neatly?
Bravado-The Perfect red
I've tried a lot of different red lipsticks, but never found the perfect one until I tried bravado. I have very fair skin so most reds look like they don't belong on my face. But this shade looks good. I love that its long lasting too.
Beyond Amazing--this stuff is ASTOUNDING
Lipstick in general is far from my favorite make up product--I'm a talker, and a smiler (and a frowner) and traditional lipsticks just wear off really, really fast for me. Even colors that I love, I just don't use a lot, because they don't last. I have very much tended to 'tinted lip glosses' that I felt really comfortable reapplying without a mirror.
I got the first one of these as part of a kit, and I tried it out one night when I went to a play with some friends, thinking it was just a lip gloss. Imagine my surprise when I walked into the ladies room at intermission, prepared to reapply it--it had been almost 2 hours since I'd put it on, I expected it would be completely worn away--and it looked barely smudged!!! Not even so smudged that it needed a retouch!!!!
I actually didn't need to reapply it until after we ate a late supper, following the show. Right before I left the restaurant, I checked again. It was 3 hours, plus a meal, before I felt like I needed to reapply it.
So...I ordered a bunch more and IT WASN'T A FLUKE.
This is far and away the best lip color out there. I have some lipsticks that cost close to 4 times what this does, and none of them work even one tenth as well. Even the other Bare Minerals lipsticks--which are better than most--are this good.
It needs to be renamed--amazing just doesn't do it justice, in my book.
Completely Amazing Lipstick!
I love make up especially love lip products. Pretty Amazing is like nothing else out there and I mean that in a good way. Goes on like gloss but behaves like lipstick. The initial reviews I read made me concerned about the color choices but to each her own I guess. Confidence is the most beautiful lip color ever created! Much better than I was expecting from the pics. Moxie is a very warm bright light pink but a nice choice for day I usually wear under something cooler. Witty is a rich cool berry color and Free Will is nude perfection! All are full coverage with two coats. I love this product.
Courage is great!
Okay, so for the reviewer who said Ambition and Courage are just not pretty, must not be light skinned. I can definitely picture the aforementioned shades as unflattering and clashing against a tan or warm undertone. Myself, being the second lightest shade in most foundation with a pink undertone found it very hard to decide between the two shades. I chose Courage and to be honest, I fell in love. The shade glows on my skin and complements my cheek color very well. It's moisturizing, doesn't bleed, and the applicator is a miracle worker. The price is definitely worth it, since a lot of lip products I use range from 15-25, so this is surely affordable. Don't shut out this product just because one color doesn't work for you!
I'll never use another
This is the most amazing lip color ever!
You don't need to put a lot on, it covers great, my lips don't get dry and it doesn't "bleed".
I just wished there were more colors.
Great bold lip-color
I got this lip color in Confidence, and it's a little dark for someone with my fair complexion and blonde hair. However, it applies very smoothly and lasts for a long time, which is great. It also feels really nice on your lips, not too sticky or too lightweight. It's a great buy, next time I plan on buying get a lighter color.
