Pop of Passion

The worst thing about wearing bold lip colors is definitely when the lip product begins to dry out your lips and you can start to see all the little lines in your bottom lip. I hate that look on myself and others, but I love rocking a bold lip color. Thankfully, I have found:

Bare Minerals – Pop of Passion Lip Oil-Balm

bare minerals lip
Shade: Pink Plum 

This lip color is really a hybrid product. Most tinted balms provide only a  light coverage, but this color really does “pop” like the name says. It provides a medium to full lip opacity.

So, should you buy it? 

Pros: For a lip color, the price is pretty nice at only $16. The oil in the product really hydrates lips to prevent those fine lip lines, and the color is spectacular. The product also comes in many shades from nude to peach to pink to berry. The color I happen to own is “Pink Plum” and it is a great mix between a pink and berry.

Cons: This does not last as long as a traditional long-wear lipstick. The shine and color certainly do fade throughout the day and you’ll need to reapply at least once or twice for full impact, but it does leave a nice stained tint even after it fades. And, on the plus side, it does fade evenly.

Overall, I think this is a great, affordable lip product that is especially nice for those who want color who are afraid of traditional lipsticks. This product is easy to apply and gives a great look.
