BareMinerals’ Triple Take Color, Gloss and Stain in Cranberry Rose

I was pretty late to the game on trying these. They'd all but been discontinued by the time I got one. So then…I hit Ebay and got the other two. (And got extras of all three.)

The hook to these is, you use one product and get the benefits of three (balm, color, and gloss). I don't know how effective this is over, say, a lip color with the ingredients blended in. I'm betting that the effectiveness isn't much better with this style of product, but it periodically re-appears in all kinds of makeup lines. The color applies easily enough, and is the darkest of the three Triple Takes. It's more “rose” than “cranberry”, so I can use this as a daily quick, soft lip color.
