bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie - Lipstick, Lip Liner & Lip Gloss

bareMinerals has just launched a few new exciting colors for summer as part of their Marvelous Moxie Lips lineup! The range includes Lipsticks, Lip Liners and Glosses that can be paired perfectly to create a beautiful custom lip. The Lipsticks pack a ton of pigment, have a creme finish with a buttery smooth texture and come in 18 shades. The lip liners come in 10 shades of pinks, reds and nudes. The lip glosses have medium to sheer coverage and come in 14, very wearable shades!

These are full coverage lipsticks with a smooth, creamy formula. I do find full coverage lipsticks a tad difficult to work with directly from the tube, so I prefer to sheer the color out with a brush. If you love fully pigmented lipsticks,with saturated color, you'll absolutely love these. The packaging is really cool - just press the button and slide the lipstick out! As for the finish, the colors I tried on had a semi-matte, satin finish so they stayed on for about 4-5 hours, leaving behind a lovely stain with no dryness.

L-R : Light It Up, Risk It All, Lead The Way, Stand Out

The liners are just as saturated as the lipsticks and although a little dry initially,  they warm up with use and go on creamy. The formula is lovely - they lock color in so well and don't budge. They are not drying when used under a gloss, but I would recommend a dab of lip balm underneath when using these with matte or satin finish lipsticks.

L-R : Electrified, Jazzed, Energized, Revved

marvelous MOXIE Lip Gloss ($18)

The Lipglosses are my absolute favorite. The color range is pretty nice, very wearable and the formula is amazing. These aren't very new to the bareMinerals line - I've tried a couple of colors before. Both the lipstick and the gloss have a minty smell which is not my favorite. Despite that, I love this gloss. It is moderately sticky and the colors have sheer-medium coverage, so they're perfect to be used over a lipstick. There's a subtle plumping effect, a slight tingle and loads of shine. The curved wand is perfect to precisely line without too much product wastage! My favorite combo is what I have on below - line with the Energized Lip Liner, apply a little Light It Up Lipstick with a lip brush and top it off with Trail Blazer Lip Gloss to sheer the color out a bit and you have a perfectly wearable coral lip! Overall, I think they have a little something for everyone, but if you like bright, saturated lip colors, you'll love this super fun lineup of Moxie lip products quite a lot!

L-R : Maverick, Smooth Talker, Game Changer, Trail Blazer
