The test was to put our best lips forward with bareMinerals. Well, challenge accepted!
The latest Marvelous Moxie collection from Bare Minerals is all shades of pretty. There are a number of lipsticks, lip liners and lip glosses to play with. For our particular review, we got to try the Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Finish First as well as the Lipgloss in Maverick and Game Changer.
Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick
This range of lipsticks has a creamy buttery texture that glides on easily, and ultra-pigmented tint to give a rich satin finish. The formula is super-saturated and infused with minerals to revitalise lips for a healthy-looking pout. There is also the benefit of a moisture-loaded hydrating complex that works to nourish and condition with Abyssinian Oil and Omega Fatty Acids.
The Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Finish First lipstick is a caramel brown shade that can be quite daunting to some. Brown tends to give a fuller appearance due to the stronger undertone and it can age you considerably. But when done right or rather paired right with your skin tone, this look can be complimenting. A general rule of thumb – lighter browns will make you look pale while darker browns will make you look old.
The Finish First lipstick leans more towards the reddish brown side when applied on my lips. At first glance, I was taken aback with the rich colour but it sorts of grow on you. For days when I need to look serious, this shall be my go-to lippie. A tip I learned; if you prefer to “tone” the colour down, try using a lip brush. I like the texture of this lipstick; with one quick swipe across the lips, the colour is bright for all to see. The finishing has a tad of glossiness that provided my lips with a moisturising touch and lips didn’t feel too sticky after. So that’s a plus point!
Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss
The thing about lipgloss is that it’s a fun way to enhance your lips with a variety of vibrant colours in a jiffy. The Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss range is available in luscious to bright shades that provide sheer-to-medium coverage with lasting shine. The refreshing formula of shea, avocado and murumuru butters deeply hydrate and smooth lips; while the same infusion of minerals as well as vitamin A, C and E complex are found in these glosses too.
The Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Maverick is described as a shade in rosewood shimmer. So essentially what you get is a light rosy pink colour and a little glossy hint without an over the top effect. It is subtle and sweet, perfect for a day look.
The Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Game Changer is a red carpet red that really stands out as a sexy hue. The deep blood tinge might not be everyone’s cup of tea but every girl should own at least one red lippie, no?
We especially loved the mirror-like finish of both the glosses that gave enough coverage to last for hours minus the usual stickiness that is apparent with lipgloss. While the Maverick has a sweet vanilla scent that is yummy, the Game Changer leaves a cooling tinge on the lips.
The curve wand also makes application a breeze and you can pack on the gloss as much as you like without wastage. The result is a slightly plump lips with beautiful colour to boast your look.
Overall, depending on your personality and style, there is a suitable Marvelous Moxie lipgloss for you to choose from. I may prefer the reddish hue for a wow effect, my guinea pig opt for a natural coverage in the lighter shade. This is a great product to own for those days when you want a quick shine before walking out the door.
Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick and Lipgloss are priced at RM75 each and it’s available from Sephora Malaysia.
