I am a big fan of Bare minerals Products. I love the fact that they are a mineral makeup line hence their products are free of Parabens, Synthetic fragrances and dyes and all those unnecessary stuff. I have loved and raved about their Original foundation here on IMBB . With that being said I decided to branch out to their lip products with this Marvelous Moxie Lip gloss in the shade- Maverick.

My Experience with Bare Minerals Marvellous Moxie Lip Gloss – Maverick
Packaging: The product does come in plastic tube which is see through which comes really handy while selecting or finding your shade. The color on the tube is true to what shows on your lips.
I love the doe foot wand it comes with which is slightly thinner than other wands I have used in the past but this does make the application precise as it gets really easy to define the color in the corner or your lips and the cupids bow which can sometimes be difficult if the applicator is thick.
The color “Maverick” is describes as a rosewood shimmer. I find the color to be a deep burgundy pink which does come across slightly brownish red in certain lights. It does have a considerable amount of golden shimmer which are not gritty or uncomfortable. They do not stick to the lips after the color fades.
The pigmentation is medium. It does apply opaque with one swipe but the intensity can be built up with another layer.
This gloss is slightly on the thicker side. It does apply very easily and evenly and does not feel heavy. The texture is somewhat sticky but that is expected with a gloss but its not too uncomfortable on the lips.
It does have a slight cool tingly menthol feeling on the lips when first applied but that fades away in less than 15 minutes. It did not have any visible plumping effect on my lips nor does it leave any stain behind when it fades.
The color did stay on my lips for 3-4 hours and even survived through minimal snacking and the high shine also lasts about 1-2 hours. It does transfer but not too much.
Effect on lips:
I do find this lip gloss to be extremely hydrating and moisturizing. My lips do not feel dried out or chapped by the end of the day
It does have a very sweet peppermint-ish scent which does linger for some time. It not too overpowering or unpleasant.
Overall If you are a fan of lip glosses try this one out. You will not be disappointed.
