i.d. Bare Escentuals Lip Gloss – Wearable Berry & Wearable Wine

i.d. Bare Escentuals Lip Gloss – Wearable Berry & Wearable Wine

I purchased both as part of a wearable lip kit. Each kit consists of a lipstick, lipgloss & lip liner for US$30. Now you can get them at Bare Escentuals’ website for the mere cost of $9.50 here. Before you start your stampede, take some time to read through this post.

One thing I have to say, the wearable kit in berry is a huge ♥ of mine. It was one of my ‘go to’ lipstick & gloss prior to me amassing my current makeup stash. It truly was a wearable berry & my mom had taken it from me on more than a few occasions to wear it herself! 😀

The wine color on the other hand, is not so wearable. It’s definitely something that I reserved for special occasions due to the depth of the color.

One thing that’s stopping me from recommending these is that from my personal experience, Bare Escentuals lipsticks & lipglosses go rancid fast. When I say rancid, I am referring to the smell. I can’t recall how the brand new Bare Escentuals lipsticks & lipglosses smelled like, but I’m sure it’s not the crayon-ny scent that they are emitting now. As such, I am not able to give a review of it beyond the color as I am not putting them on my lips 😦

As for the lipliners, these are the automatic self sharpening type. Meaning that you just swivel them up & there is no need to sharpen them (look like pencil lead but berry colored). They’re nice. Staying power is moderate as I tend to layer gloss over them as the lipliner by itself seems very drying on my lips. They’re nice to have but are not ones that I would rebuy if I lose them. 

* Purchased by myself & can be purchased for a huge discount on the Bare Escentual Website here

Lip Gloss Dupes?

Lip Gloss Dupes?

So I was doing a blog review of Bare Escentual Wearable Berry & Wine glosses & lipliners when I was reminded of how much I love the color of the Wearable Berry. Since I rounded up most of my glosses recently (to be reviewed/purged/kept), I decided to start swatching them 😀

As you can see, none of them is a exact dupe 😦 Revlon Colorstay Mineral LipGlaze – Forever Raisin 540 & NARS Dolce Vita probably came closest.

You are probably wondering why I want to have a dupe of a color I have already? *gives a Mona Lisa smile* I guess you just have to wait till tomorrow to know. 😀
