The Lipstick That Has Every Shade You Ever Needed… bareMinerals Mineralist Review

*Affiliate links used. Full disclaimer details here.
bareMinerals is one of those brands that I know many of us know and love! For the last two years, they’ve been reformulating and expanding their color cosmetics line and I’ve been 98% obsessed with everything they’ve released! So you can imagine how excited and thrilled I was to receive the entire new Mineralist lipstick collection they launched recently complimentary for testing purposes. I hopped on YouTube almost immediately to give you my bareMinerals Mineralist review, but wanted to share my thoughts on the blog here, with swatches so you can always refer back to the shades.

bareMinerals mineralist review

The new bareMinerals Mineralist lipsticks ($20/ea) come in 25 shades that are amazingly:

  • paraben free
  • gluten free
  • cruelty free
  • vegan
  • synthetic fragrance-free
  • PEG free
  • talc free

This formula only uses 19 ingredients… which currently is 40% LESS ingredients than most lipsticks on the market.

Mineralist lipsticks also are formulated to improve your lips over time and wear with lots of deeply nourishing hydrators and antioxidants to restore and replenish.



These lipsticks are creamy, comfortable and demi-matte. I wouldn’t say they’re matte, but they’re not shiny/glossy either.

I found them to wear comfortably for a solid 4-6 hours, with eating. They reapply well and definitely seem to moisturize the lips.


If you want to see me trying on each of the 25 shades, you can refer to the YouTube video here:

overall thoughts

What I found to be most interesting about this collection is the variation of undertones in each of the shade ranges.

At first glance, you may think it looks like 4 different nudes, or 4 different berry shades, etc.

But when I actually applied them, each shade had its own undertone.

This is especially relevant when someone wants to find the most flattering nude, or pink, or berry, or red.

We always want to find the best undertone for our foundations and concealers, but rarely talk about it for lipsticks!

bareMinerals did an amazing job at creating cool, warm, and neutral undertones in these shades and I’m really excited about this collection.

I think everyone will find a shade (or three or four!) they LOVE.

Another knock out of the park from bareMinerals color collection! You can find these lipsticks at Ulta, Sephora, Macy’s, in bareMinerals stores and online. They retail for a fair $20/each.

What do you think? What shade is your favorite? Hope this was helpful!
