bareMinerals Kiss of Pink Gen Nude Blonzer Review & Swatches

by Jeremy

The texture was smooth to the touch, velvety, and almost creamy with how much slip it had, yet it was a powder. It wasn’t too firm nor softly pressed into the pan, making it easy to pick up with a brush and blend out without losing coverage immediately. This shade showed signs of fading after eight hours on my cheeks.

Formula Overview

$25.00/0.13 oz. – $192.31 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have a “silky texture that blends seamlessly and builds color effortlessly” and is a combined blush and bronzer in terms of effect. The texture was smooth, almost cream-like–dense and a little plush to the touch but not thick or difficult to pick up with a brush. It yielded more product on my encounter than expected, and it’s not a formula I’d describe as buildable.

These were quite pigmented, and a little went a long way, so you’ll want to use a lighter hand and a more feathery brush to pick up the product for a proper, buildable application. They applied evenly, blended out well, and were higher shine, though they didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. The formula stayed on well for eight to nine hours before fading visibly.
