BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss

Once in a while there is a product that upon first use, blows me out the water. I'm incredibly happy to report that the newly launched BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss is one of those!


Packaging
It's pretty standard - a standard length, a standard doefoot applicator, clear tube with a black lid. It has a nice twist to it with a slanted top to the black lid, but otherwise, pretty standard.

Pigment

I can't vouch for the lighter shades, but in the medium shade I have, it's fantastic. It's not opaque like a stain, but it's as pigmented as you'd expect a see-through based lipgloss to be.

Regarding the shade Maverick, specifically, I love it as a slightly darkened nude. It has a warm berry tone which is slightly darker and warmer than my natural lip colour, making it a darker, sophisticated but still natural lip colour. It's one of those shades I think will work for absolutely everyone and a great choice for those who need a toned down, yet defined lip.


Formula
This, I think, is what makes this product such a winner. As you can see below, the doe-foot applies so evenly and smoothly onto the lips, and creates a clean crisp line around the edges. The formula blurs out and fills in the small lines on your lips, and really 'fits' into your curves to give a perfect juicy pout. It wears like this until you have a drink etc., and the feeling is light yet smoothing, and neither sticky nor gloopy. Absolutely gorgeous, perfect finish! It also has a minty scent to it that keeps your lips feeling plump and tingly.



Overall, one of the best lipgloss formulas out there. I'm so in love with the visual effects but also the gorgeous feeling on the lips. It really does give you that confidence to be a bit of a moxie.. ;)

Have you tried the Moxie line?
What do you look for in a lipgloss?

    1. I'm dying to try those! As I mentioned to luxiehoney below, some of the shades in the Moxie line are creams if you fancy those! :)

  6. This is sooooooo pretty on you Yu! I *adore* the Buxom lip creams, but they're so hard to get in the UK and the buxom lip glosses we do get are all very glittery. Can I ask, is it at all glittery/shimmery or just a creme? If it is just a creme I might need to hide my wallet in case I go and buy them all :P xxx
