Today, I will review for you bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in the shade Light It Up.
A creamy, super-saturated, ultrapigmented lipstick with full coverage and a rich, satin finish. Make an impact with rich color that glides on like butter to make lips look fuller and more voluptuous. An infusion of minerals revitalizes lips for a healthy-looking pout, while a moisture-loaded hydrating complex helps to nourish and condition with abyssinian oil and omega fatty acids for supple, baby-soft smoothness. All the while, an encapsulated vitamin A, C, and E complex helps to deliver antioxidant defense, so you’re ready for anything and everything. It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, phthalates.
My Experience with bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick – Light It Up:
I love Bare Minerals products firstly because they are a mineral makeup line hence free from most harmful chemicals like parabens, etc. Like most of the bareMinerals products in my collection, I fell in love with this lipstick from the very first moment I used it.
The packaging and the tube of this lipstick has a very interesting and unique mechanism. Along with being totally black with a shiny finish, it has a bright silver button on the bottom half which you slide up like while keeping the tube upside down and the product slides out from the top. Once the tube is out, the mechanism is pretty standard twist up tube to draw out the lipstick.
The shade “Light It Up” is described as a bright melon color which I totally agree with. It imparts a very bright looking coral-peach shade when it’s applied, but somehow, after a few hour of wear, the color looks more peachy pink to me. I was surprised to see this bit though not a very prominent color change as I thought only foundations oxidized and changed colors when applied. But the original or the change in color doesn’t bother me as I truly love this shade. This shade seems very summery to me. It is a bit out of my comfort zone as the color does look very loud and in your face and can look drastically wrong if paired with the wrong skin tone or even with wrong face and eye makeup. This color definitely needs work to pull it off and cannot be listed under the category of “just swipe and go” shade.
These lipsticks truly are very creamy and go on completely opaque and even in one swipe. 85-95% of color gets deposited in a single swipe. They do impart a satin sheen to the lips which does not make the lips too glossy or shiny, neither do they look matte. I don’t find these lipsticks to settle in my fine lines or accentuate them, neither do they make my lips feel parched or have me reaching for my lip balm during their wear time.
Staying power of these lipsticks is very good. I can easily get 6 hour of wear with this and the color will even survive through snacking, though I need a touch up after a full meal. Whenever it fades, it does fade evenly and does not look patchy. Also, leaves a slight amount of tint behind.
It has a pleasant , sweet scent which does not linger for long after applied and is not bothersome at all even to sensitive noses. Overall, very impressed with this product. I am in love with this color even though I do find it difficult to pull off on certain occasions. If you are searching for an eye-catching shade of lipstick for you collection, do check this out.
