Don't you love it when you try an unexpected lip color and the risk totally pays off?

That's what happened when I tried Bare Minerals Pretty Amazing Lip Color in Panache, which is a plummy wine color that's completely unlike any other shade I have in my collection.

I received Bare Minerals Pretty Amazing Lip Color in Panache as part of the Bare Minerals "Finishing Touches" set for Sephora Beauty Insiders. The Bare Minerals "Finishing Touches" set includes one mini version each of: 1) Bare Minerals Mineral Veil, 2) Bare Minerals Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara, and 3) Bare Minerals Pretty Amazing Lip Color in Panache. This 3-piece mini set was first available as a gift with purchase a few months ago, but Sephora promoted it again in an email last week. No minimum spend required.

If you want to check if it's still available, the promo code for this set was: BEFINISH

Bare Minerals Pretty Amazing Lip Color in Panache appears to be a plum/grape in the tube, but red undertones come out when it's applied. Although Bare Minerals describes this as an opaque lip color, it's actually fairly sheer. Some of my natural lip color shows through and makes this lip color even more flattering. 

Bare Minerals Pretty Amazing Lip Color in Panache has a light, non-sticky texture with some (but not tons) of shine. I was particularly impressed with the applicator. It doesn't look like anything special, but the slightly tapered tip allows for extremely precise application.

Unfortunately, it seems that Bare Minerals Pretty Amazing Lip Color in Panache is exclusive to the Finishing Touches Set at the moment. I have a hunch that Bare Minerals will soon make Panache available as a core Pretty Amazing Lip Color shade, or at least include it in other limited-edition/exclusive collections. Keep an eye out -- this color is too pretty to keep from Bare Minerals fans!

  3. That is gorgeous! It reminds me of summer! I wonder if it would look good against my yellow toned skin (I'm Asian)...

    1. Hmm, I think it would probably look really nice, actually! I have warm toned skin as well, and I think it complements the golden undertones well. I bet this shade would complement dark hair nicely as well. :-)
