Shade Range

bareMinerals MINERALIST Hydra Smoothing Lipstick

A gorgeous selection of colours, from light nude to pink, pop of orange to dark and vampy! There’s a shade for everyone and for every occasion!

Below is the swatches of the ten shades I’ve received.

bareMinerals MINERALIST Hydra Smoothing Lipstick
  • Balance: warm beige nude
  • Insight: nude pink
  • Presence: rose mauve 
  • Awareness: rosewood
  • Integrity: rich red brown
  • Joy: warm medium pink
  • Charisma: medium pink berry
  • Honesty: mauve pink
  • Wisdom: fuchsia
  • Energy: electric orange


The formula is absolutely creamy and moisturising thanks to the omega-packed, cold-pressed European Sea Buckthorn Fruit Oil, Mediterranean Olive Oil and antioxidant-rich Moroccan Pomegranate Extract.  Seriously nourishing and conditioning!  It offers a satin finish with a slight sheen, feels incredibly lightweight and comfortable on.

They glide on my lips effortlessly, SMOOTHING over any lines.  Along with the beautiful application, the colour payoff is excellent and the coverage is buildable.  You can apply directly from the bullet, for the darker/bolder shades I would use a lip liner for a more precise finish.  Also, I love how they wear off evenly leaving such a beautiful stain behind. 

Scent-wise, the lipstick features a subtle, sweet scent of Prickly Pear and Açaí.  I don’t think I have come across this particular scent on a lipstick before and I really like it!

Out of these ten shades, my favourites are Insight, Presence and Energy.
