There are certain things we are told as children. One, don’t kiss and tell. Two, don’t tell everything you know. Against the advice of my elders, I am going to break both of these rules.
The great things about this time of the year are all of new collections. I especially love value sets because they allow you to test drive some products and colors you may not have the opportunity to try otherwise. This season I am enamored with bareMinerals Kiss and Tell.
This collection includes five Moxie lipsticks (that are not quite full sized) for the bargain price of $29. Each Moxie is 1.5 grams, which makes them similar to a deluxe sized sample in my book. Personally, I like the smaller size because they are compact and take up less room in my purse. (I can’t remember when the last time I used an entire lipstick anyway.)
The bareMinerals Kiss and Tell set includes these five shades:
Be Bold – crimson berry
Go All Out – neon pink
Get Ready – warm rosy pink
Break Away – warm mauve
Speak Your Mind – sweet pink
Speak Your Mind, Break Away and Get Ready are pink/neutrally colored shades that go with just about everything. But, I surprised myself by reaching for Go All Out and Be Bold when I was looking for a bit more color.
All of the shades are very wearable without being sticky or drying. While the formula is long lasting and have good pigmentation with a nice satin finish. I could not detect any fragrance or strange taste that lipstick sometimes has.
• Pretty, wearable colors
• Good Value
• No parbens or sulfates
• Limited Edition and likely to go fast.
There is nothing that perks me up more than a new fun makeup collection and the bareMinerals Kiss and Tell set certainly has done its job. If you have a lipstick lover on your list, pick up one of these holiday specials (and grab one for yourself while you are at it!).
Readers – Have you picked up anything new from Bare Minerals over the holiday season?
