Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss Swatch and Review

If you are seeking to make your lips look more luscious and pouty but with natural ingredients, bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipglosses would do the trick. It comes in 10 different colors and I will be showing you 4 today.

Each lipgloss is packaged in a hard acrylic tube with a doe foot applicator (see detail below) integrated cap for an easy hold and application. The colors are quite dreamy with wearability for all occasions. They are not supper glittery but they’re definitely not flat either. The fine shimmers inside rather add a lot of depth to the vivid gloss color.

The 4 shades we have today are Sparkplug, Party Starter, Smooth Talker and Risk Taker. It actually would be more interesting if the first one is called Spark Plugger then all of them would end with “er.” Anyway, just kidding.

Starting off with Sparkplug, it shows a rosy pink with pearly shimmer. This is a barely there nude color that goes on semi sheer on the lips.

Party Starter is a coral with soft shimmers. Compare the other 3 colors, Party Starter is less shimmery but more vibrant. It’s also sheerer than the others so if you have darker lips, it won’t look as vibrant as it shows in the tube.

Smooth Talker pretty much is a dusty pink with gold shimmers. This is a super pretty pink without looking too dramatic and the pink-gold combination is really flattery for day time look.

Risk Taker comes in a bronze color with gold and multi shimmer. This color is very summery and bold. It makes a great fun shade for night time. The color is also very pigmented.

Now let’s talk about the applicator before looking at the swatches. Instead of a straight wand, the applicator is slanted on the tip and I find it picks up more product. Each time I only need to pull it out once for the entire lip. Then after I’m done I can just wipe it clean on the tissue and return back to the tube. It definitely saves the product from pumping in too much air, it also saves me time. The shape of the tip is also a very comfortable fit on the lips as it hugs the natural lip contour pretty nicely.

Finally here are the swatches for the 4 shades. From left to right we have Sparkplug, Party Starter, Smooth Talker and Risk Taker. Compare to some of the lip plumping glosses, these provide a gentle cooling sensation without any serious burning effect. The texture is smooth and the finish is glossy with high shine. Although they feel a bit thick and a bit tacky, they sure last for hours. And once you apply these on the lips, you can tell they look fuller and more plumped, marvelous!

With vivid colors and fabulous pouty lips, Marvelous Moxie Lipglosses bring a luscious look that is sheer but shiny to us. Each color has its own uniqueness but overall very easy to wear. The ingredients are full of natural exotic oils, botanical extracts and antioxidants, so they’re not only looking good on the lips but also do good to them. No wonder it feels so moisturizing.

    After trying Risk Taker, it makes my lips shiny and glowing like gold. Love the brand.

    LOVE Sparkplug! So, so beautiful. I’ve only tried one lip gloss from Buxom before (their Big & Healthy one, I believe)–but I loved it. Definitely need to try out these Moxie ones!
