BareMinerals’ buxom Blanche

An extremely pale, definitely-nude lip color. For me, it's almost one of those “it's not really there” shades. With the other nudes/browns (Merry, Sandy, Sugar) there was something to mark the change: Merry actually was more of a toast-brown, and had the sparkle. Sandy was more pink. Sugar was more tan. Sunny was more bronze, and had the slight duochrome effect. Blanche (which means “white” in French) is a non-color for me. I guess I could use it on my pinker lip sticks (Amsterdam, Vienna, London) when I want to tone that color down a bit, and go for a “nude” look that has more coloration than using Marrakech would give me.
