As much as I love to create a really intricate, full face of makeup, on a day-to-day basis I tend to go for something a bit more … natural.
On a daily basis, all I want is a healthy radiant complexion with natural rosy cheeks, bright eyes with long lashes and a nude lip. My favourite must have products all come in a range of nudes – rosy nudes, peachy nudes, pinky nudes and brownish nudes.
The new additions to the BareMinerals GenNude range are right up my alley with both powder blushes and patent lip lacquers in a variety of good for skin nudes, for every shade of nude.
The GenNude range is a collection of beautiful, radiant products designed to work with your skin, to improve it, all while highlighting your own natural beauty. Every product combines rich pigmentation, and exclusive mineral based technology with good for you ingredients that work on your skin while you wear it.
The GenNude Patent Lip Lacquers ($23 CAD/$19 USD) are an absolutely stunning addition to the world of lipsticks. These beauties are truly one of a kind, not necessarily in what they are but in how they perform. These have a liquified lip base with intense colour payoff, full coverage and next level gleam.
They are ultra high shine lip colours with a patent like finish that won’t wear away as the day goes on. A luxurious glossy lip that has a stickier texture that glides onto the lips and transforms into a comfortable gel leaving your lips feeling softer and looking fuller. They don’t feel tacky or heavy on the lips but almost as if you are wearing nothing at all.
The moisturizing formula gently soothes lips with Jojoba Oil and Algae, while Smithsonite Extract and Copper helps with texture, dryness and fullness.
The GenNude Patent Lip Lacquers come in a beautiful range of 18 show-stopping shades (with pink, peach, mauve and beige), each one handpicked by the BareMinerals team to enhance and flatter every skin tone from ultra fair to ultra deep. There is a shade of “nude” for every complexion, not just one shade that is supposed to fit all.
The super pigmented, vibrant lipsticks give full coverage and complete opacity in one swipe and can be blended into the lips without losing any of the intensity.

The GenNude Powder Blushes ($30 CAD/$24 USD) are so much more than just your average blush. They give you a natural rosy glow, no matter your skin tone with their range of “rosy” tones, designed to mimic the natural flush of the skin. These fresh faced powders are the ultimate neutral blush for each and every complexion, they are the one go-to blush that will look incredible with any look on any occasion.
These blushes have a beautiful, buttery texture that melts into the skin and blends in seamlessly over both foundation and bare skin. They are richly pigmented, giving a smooth even flush of colour that you can swipe on and run out the door.
The mineral rich formula helps to smooth skin and blend evenly over texture, meaning you won’t have patchy application. It is infused with a special Blurring Mineral Complex that contains light reflecting hydrated silica pearls, marimo pearls, and super diffusion powder, all of which brighten skin and blur imperfections for a soft focus effect.
The forgiving formula looks beautiful on skin with all sorts of texture and melts right in for the most beautiful healthy, radiant looking complexion you have ever seen. They add a touch of colour and a natural glow to the cheeks with a slight sheen that brings the whole face to life.
There are 6 shades designed to compliment all skin tones, just like the lip lacquers. They are Call My Blush (a delicate pink mauve), You Had Me At Merlot (rich berry wine with a gold pearl), Pink Me Up (medium nude pink with gold pearl), That Peach Tho (soft peachy pink), Beige For Days (soft beige), and But First, Coffee (rich chocolate with gold pearl).

The BareMinerals GenNude range is one of my absolute favourites for their inclusivity and creativity when it comes to the idea of “nude”. These two new additions are absolutely gorgeous and they perform like a dream.
