New from Bare Naturals - Mineral Liquid Lipstick & more Eye Pigment colors

I'm into exploring local mmu products nowadays, and revisited an old favorite: Bare Naturals. They've been coming up with so many new items lately! The newest of which is their Mineral Liquid Lipstick:

Enriched with Vitamin E, avocado oil, shea butter, and emu oil, it's supposed to keep lips moist, and provide natural-looking color. This shade is called Glamor, which is described as a Pink coral with hint of coral and silver iridiscence. This is a flirty, pretty color. I like it a lot!

Here it is on my lips:

I'm wearing it here as I normally would, using just a sheer layer. It's glossy but not overly glossy or shimmery even. Apply heavier layers (it has a wand applicator) and the color becomes almost opaque- hence its being called a 'liquid' lipstick. It also smells nice, like strawberries with a hint of mint! And definitely more moisturizing than your typical lipgloss or lipstick. It's available for only Php 215 or around $4.50. This'll last me a long time but I'd like to get another color...I think Fame which is a raspberry color or Power, which looks like a lovely peach. Swatches are available on the website.

Bare Naturals also has new Eye Pigment colors. I only ordered a few samples (these are available in sample baggies at Php 40 and the full size at Php 135), but Lami, the owner, generously included a bunch of other baggies and one in the fullsize 5g jar. Yay!

I was glad that the fullsize color I received was Dark Night, which is a matte black. I have no black eyeshadows and I've also been looking to get more matte shades. I also have lots of shimmery e/s but nearly no matte ones. I'll be using this to line my eyes and when I want to try more dramatic looks.

I swatched the other colors I received and labelled them on the following photo. Please click to enlarge:

I like both the shimmery and matte ones. I especially like Twilight and Urban (how many brown eyeshadows can a girl have?) , and Mod because I'm a sucker for gold and bronzey shades, as well as Soldier because I also love green e/s. Cosmo is really nice too, I don't think I have an e/s color like this one.

I'll also be trying Bare Naturals' BB creams, probably today, will post about that soon!
