Bare Minerals Your Kiss Is On My List Mini Gen Nude Radiant Lipstick Collection Review & Swatches

Yay the new, limited edition Bare Minerals Your Kiss Is On My List Mini Gen Nude Radiant Lipstick Collection that launched with the Bare Minerals Holiday 2016 Collection gets you eight shades of the new Gen Nude Lipstick. Honestly, I never expected to get a set of Gen Nude Lipsticks this quickly! If anything I would expect a set like this to launch next year since the Gen Nude Lipsick range so very new (Yes, I’m almost typed, “so very nude”!).


Typically, Bare Minerals does a Moxie Lipstick Set like the Love At First Kiss Marvelous Moxie Lipstick Collection and I expected the same this year. It just seems like Gen Nude would be too new for a value set. But I am quite happy about the launch of the Bare Minerals Your Kiss Is On My List Mini Gen Nude Radiant Lipstick Collection.


This little set includes eight mini Gen Nude Lipsticks for $35. Each lipstick is 0.04 oz in size for a total of 0.32 oz of product. A full size is $20 and weights in at 0.12 oz. This set gets you nearly $60 worth of lipstick although it says it is an $80 value (three full size lipsticks is $60 for 0.36 oz of product, not sure where $80 comes into play! Unless I’m tired and my math is way off haha!).

The set features two different barrel designs one of which is a rose gold barrel with black scripting and black accents and the other is a black barrel with rose gold scripting and accents! It’s kind of fun to have two different packaging details on the tubes! By the way, the tubes are super small which makes them great for light travel and easy storage but you’re bound to run through shades quickly at this size plus given the slick, melty formula, you’ll for sure get through them fast. I think of them as a sampler set of sorts so, you can see which shades look good on you and you can indulge in the full size later.

Shades include:

  • Bubbles
  • Nudist
  • Kitty
  • Heaven
  • Sexpot
  • Honeybun
  • XOX
  • Queen

I have to admit I struggled with a few shades as they gave me a bad case of zombie lips. But I did not struggle with the formula which happens to be better than Marvelous Moxie. These are fragrance and flavor-free and have a smooth, easy application on lips with a lightly creamy texture that has a slick, even, smooth glide across lips. They have a hint of a shiny finish and excellent pigmentation with a wear of four hours on my drier lips. I love the formula! It quite reminds me of Japanese lipsticks which favor a slicker, creamier textured lipstick with a hint of a shiny finish. Apparently these are Made in China, I’m not sure if the full size Gen Nude Lipstick are as well? Sadly, I can’t compare the formula since I haven’t tried the full size ones but if they are anything as good as the minis I’ll be quite happy. I adore this soft, melt-y texture as it applies on my lips like melted butter!

Lipgloss sets are a common Holiday offering but I feel like lipstick ones aren’t as common! So, I always appreciate Bare Minerals for doing one and I feel like they really got th Your Kiss Is On My List Mini Gen Nude Radiant Lipstick Collection down right. This a beautifully formulated set of lipsticks and an excellent way to try a variety of nudes to see which ones you look best in! It’s also a perfect introduction to the new Gen Nude Lipstick Collection.

Muse Approved.

The Bare Minerals Your Kiss Is On My List Mini Gen Nude Radiant Lipstick Collection is available now at Uta.com and arriving soon at Sephora.com and Nordstrom.com.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Thank you so much for the swatches. I was tempted but it appears I would only be able to wear 2 of the shades. I’ll pass on this one.

    • Isabella Muse

      My pleasure! Yeah, a lot of the shades are zombie-ish for me! I’m glad I got it though as it helped me narrow down colors I want in the full size!

    • Kharanya

      This kit piqued my interest until I saw the swatches… How disappointing! I love their lipsticks, but way to many pale beige shades in this one, no medium peachy or mauvey nudes?

  • Kimmwc03

    I think I may purchase this one. I’ve only tried one shade so far but I like it.

  • Agona

    I totally got this too! Ulta was running a GWP so I got a free set of 6x Marvelous Moxie lip glosses (Stop, Gloss, & Glisten) so I jumped on this (with the 12.0 Wish List and cheek trio Glow Together). I was resisting the return of 90s nude lips but these are surprisingly wearable; not the brown nudes of the 90s I remember (shudder).

    Side note: The problem with the free GWP is now I don’t know if getting Be Merry and Moxie 6x lip gloss set is worth it. :-\

    • Isabella Muse

      oh great GWP! ugh the brown based ones are a no go for me too! Sounds like a good GWP to me!!!!!

  • Kate

    All of the colors look great on you! And I’m happy to hear these are not minty like so many other lip products out there (it’s a dealbreaker for me). Maybe Santa will bring me this set… 🙂

    • Isabella Muse

      oh yes! marvelous moxie had that cinnamon, minty taste that everyone hated!

  • Dee

    I believe I will. Most of these will work, I think. The price is good and the size of these is great.

    • Isabella Muse

      I thought it was a nice way to try out a few of the gen nudes at a nice price 😀

  • Dora

    Wearing the full size in Mantra today (like a plummy/pinky mauve) — and love it. Perfect fall shade (for me). Texture is really nice — soft, moisturizing, no fragrance. I no longer have the packaging so have no idea if it’s made in China, though.

    • Isabella Muse

      I was curious if the full size were made in China as well! None the less, the formula is divine! Very soft like you said, really great texture, lightly hydrating! Just a great lipstick formula 😀

      • Agona

        Hey, I threw out the box already but when I looked at it, I don’t remember it being made in China. It’s one of the things I look for so it would’ve stood out in my memory if it had been. That being said, I don’t remember where it was actually made. I want to say San Francisco?

  • Kris

    I have several of these and love the shades and the formula is so creamy!!! I have been getting backups of some and really really want this set of minis!!!! These sound great for sticking them in your pocket!!!

    • Isabella Muse

      They are so tiny you can pretty much carry all of them around in your pocket haha!

      • Emily

        Thanks in part to your swatch and face shot of Queen, I bought it and wore it yesterday for the first time. LOVE! It’s the perfect fall color for me! Really nice in every way. Also thanks to your review, I decided to buy the one full size in the color I liked most, rather than the set, which would have left me with 4 or 5 colors I will never wear, just taking up space.

  • Kathy

    Got this, returned it today. Looking at the lipsticks in the tubes, they looked nothing like the swatches or the descriptions on the box. I don’t know if I got a bad set, but they all looked the same — too concealer-ish in tone for my taste.

    I got The Wish List palette (one of the last two on the display) plus the Be Glowing (Get Glowing?) kit. Except for the Moxie gloss (which I don’t use — I don’t like the feel of it on my lips. I have a sensitive spot on my lip and I don’t like to take chances with it), they’re both fantastic.

    • Isabella Muse

      I had the same problem with many of the shades, I call them zombie shades haha! Sadness! But I was still happy I purchased because it gave me a chance to try a few shades of Gen Nude! I ddn’t get Be GLowing but I did get the Wish List which I reviewed recently, I liked it but just wished for a few more shade variations in that one!

    • Agona

      I thought they looked pretty bland and the tube too. It wasn’t until I swatch them on my hand when I realize they actually were very pretty and had these undertones that didn’t show up when looking at them in the tube.

  • blee

    Sorry, I’m a tad late. I miss the MM lip sticks and liners. I like the colors in the collection much better. 🙁
