A little overdue, this review! I was sent this set of beautiful shades a few months ago, and they’ve been in regular rotation ever since.
A bit of a departure for Bare Minerals, the Marvelous Moxie range of lipsticks is a collection of extremely BRIGHT and deeply saturated shades in a much wider collection of colours than we’ve come to expect from the brand in recent years. They’re a bit of a revelation – beautifully packaged too, I love the off-set tops, and the push-button slide mechanism to open them.
From left to right here, we have: Risk it All, a cool bright pink, Call the Shots, which is a lovely tomato red, Live Large (my favourite), a plummy mauve, and Lead the Way, which is, quite frankly, purple. In use the lipsticks are soft (more about this later), creamy and opaque, and they’re unscented too, which is a bonus.
As you can see, they’re all pretty true to the shades in the bullet (Lead the Way aside, this is quite a bit lighter and brighter on the skin, which is a good thing!) once swatched, this is one pass over unprimed skin, and the effect is much the same on the lips. They’re not super long-lasting, but you will get a good three or four hours wear out of the shades, if you can manage not to eat or drink for that period of time.
For my Sci/Art readers, here’s how they look against the Dark Winter fan:
You can see from this picture that Live Large (at the top, against square 6.2) is a bit beaten up, this is because the formulation is a bit soft, and in use the bullet has shifted in the case. There’s been a bit of a snapping situation, alas, which is a bummer, as this is a perfect “neutral” shade for my lips, and it’s the shade I’ve worn the most as a result. Ah well.
The lipsticks are a little brighter than the fan, but I wear them anyway. The Moxie collection is fun and bright, and a joy to wear. Just try not to snap your favourite shades!
