it’s not often that exciting developments come along in the lip department. for the most part, lipstick is lipstick, liner is liner, and gloss is gloss – but bareminerals is shaking things up with their new marvelous moxie collection and color me (and my lips) impressed! i’ve been playing with all three formulas for a couple of weeks now and i’ve settled on three standout favorites:
marvelous moxie lip liner in liberated, $15 – bareminerals calls this one a “blushing almond” but i’m here to tell you it’s nude, with the slightest pink undertone (ie perfect for fair-olive skinned chicks). it’s the best lip primer under any and all shades in your color collection and i love this color so much that i’ve even been wearing it on its own with just a touch of gloss over top.
marvelous moxie lipstick in never say never, $18 – this fearless fuchsia is creamy and super saturated. it goes on like a butter and feels like satin as it wears all night. this particular color is a total outfit maker. (i’m wearing it this evening with a cobalt blue strappy tank and white linen pants.) it’s sophisticated and so comfortable to wear – i’ve been keeping it close at hand.
marvelous moxie lipgloss in rebel, $18 – i have not stopped reaching for this pretty pinky mauve. it’s gorgeous with nothing else underneath and it’s moisturizing enough to finish off my makeup with kind of a “bare lips plus” look. the extra long applicator and minty flavor give this one extra credit in the wearability department. it’s too pretty not to have with me at all times!
have you tried any of these new bareminerals lippies? any favorites?
