bareminerals kiss & tell lipsticks with swatches

I tried to resist during the preview event a few weeks ago, but this time the new BareMinerals Kiss & Tell ($29) mini lipstick set called out my name. It's no secret already that I love this lipstick formula, and this set has two new colors.

Speak Your Mind (baby pink) 
Break Away (nude medium tone mauve)
Get Ready (warm rose pink)
LIMITED EDITION - Go All Out (hot pink)
LIMITED EDITION - Be Bold (deep berry red)

Despite the fact that I already owned "Get Ready", and "Speak Your Mind" is a little too baby pink for my comfort zone, I was sold the second I tried on "Be Bold". Also, who doesn't need another hot pink lipstick with "Go All Out"? The final shade, "Break Away", is a simple classic mauve, a great easy work appropriate shade. The only thing I wish is that they had a bright classic red, "Get Ready" and "Break Away" are very similar.

BareMinerals has done an excellent job of maintaining a standard quality in their products. I never worry about the quality of their eye shadow, and it appears the same applies for this new lipstick range. They are as moisturizing, creamy, and long lasting as the permanent range. These minis are just plain cute and convenient as well. At 15 g / .05 oz each they are a great deal, compared to the full size which are $18, and 35g / .12 oz each. Also - maybe I will actually finish a lipstick for once!
