bareMinerals Velvet Mauve & Velvet Charcoal

I like the bareMinerals Velvet collection (6 colors, all very matte in texture), but I don’t LOVE them.  I don’t know if it’s the texture or what, but I find them to be a little difficult to blend, in general, and the colors aren’t richly pigmented. Velvet Mauve comes out quite brown on my skin, though I was hoping it would lean more pink/plum.

It’s been a while since I’ve worn the bareMinerals Pretty Amazing lipcolor in Fearless, and I forgot how much I adore this shade!

About Essy
I'm finally figuring out this makeup thing in my 30's. It's so much fun to collect and play with new colors and styles. I'm not a makeup artist, and far from it. I welcome any comments and tips you have!
