bareMinerals 100% Natural Lipgloss - Birthday Cake

Sorry about the lack of posts recently! After moving, I've finally had internet set up this afternoon :) I've started my third year of university last Wednesday, and life is hectic, balancing school and work. But, I'm back into the routine of things, and I'll be blogging more regularly now!

I was given bareMinerals 100% Natural Lipgloss in Birthday Cake during Sephora's Chic Week back in April, as a VIB bonus. I have never used any lip products from bareMinerals before, and I haven't heard very many reviews on them either. Birthday Cake is a light berry shade, which bareMinerals describes as "a fruit punch shine." I really like the packaging of this gloss, which a black rubberized cap and small brush applicator. The gloss smells almost fruity, but not at all overpowering. 

"Shine naturally — without preservatives, parabens and artificial dyes. Our all-natural polish combines 100% pure bareMinerals with delectable ingredients such as Pomegranate Seed Oil and Honeysuckle Flower Extract. You'll never think twice about licking your lips again."

  • Soft touch case with feminine curves for a comfortable grip
  • Monoi D-Tahiti Oil provides up to six hours of moisturization
  • Cupuacu Butter promotes smoothness and elasticity
  • Barley Lipids improve the overall condition of your lips
  • Vitamin E protects and heals your lips from environmental factors
  • Echium Oil fights inflammation and reduce wrinkles
  • Infused with 100% pure bareMinerals for an extra dose of healthy nutrients

I really enjoy wearing this gloss! The brush applicator is easy to use, and the colour applies really well. Birthday Cake isn't an opaque colour, it's more of a sheer wash of colour, making application pretty easy.  This gloss is not sticky, it feels amazing on the lips. This lasted about 4-5 hours on my lips, which is great for a lipgloss! I did eat a bit with this gloss on, and it does stay on! 

If you are wanting an opaque gloss, this one won't be for you. But, if you want something light, shiny, and long-wearing, I would definitely give this formula a try! The only thing is, this tube contains very little products, only 4.2 mL for $19 CDN. 

Have you tried this gloss from bareMinerals before? What are your favourite lip glosses? :)


  1. Nice full lips! I love lipgloss, in fact I'm a lipgloss addict. Eveytime I go the mall, my first destination is the make-up section. One time, I purchased 10 different shades of lipgloss. I'm sure I'll be getting this one.

    1. Thanks! I'm definitely a lip junkie as well, I have a million and can never have enough!

  2. Love this color!! I have never tried bareMinerals lip glosses. Surprisingly! :-) My faves are the Clarins Gloss Prodige and MAC lip glasses. :-)
