Lips can face anything with moxie and in vivid color with these lippies!
I heart bareMinerals. I especially love the formulation of their products – they’re lush and decadent and bold. I was especially excited about their new bareMinerals Marvelous MOXIE lip line.
New to the permanent collection, bareMinerals has created 18 new lipsticks, 14 lip glosses, and 10 lip liners for your wearing pleasure. Containing all kinds of good-for-you ingredients whilst plumping, moisturizing, and having unparalleled staying power, this latest collection is just plain covet-worthy!
The Marvelous MOXIE lipsticks ($18) are just sinful, buttery perfection. Available in 18 shades, the wht team got a look at 4 hues:
Fly High – cool lavender pink
Call the Shots – bright pure red
Go the Distance – medium coral (a very wearable intro to coral!)
Never Say Never – hot fuchsia pink
The lipsticks are housed in a sleek, black tube with a little silver button at the side of the lid. It’s an interesting tube that’s a little hard to get the hang of opening and it took me a few seconds to figure out how to use these babies – just slide the button down and the tube of lipstick is deployed and ready for action.
But it’s the color saturation and wear time that makes these lippies a stand-out for me. I applied these early in the day, looked fresh for about 3 hours, and then it slowly, very slowly wore down to a vivid stain that looked like the fresh application of most other lipsticks. Even better, these are moisturizing and leave my lips baby soft after hours of wear. This formulation contains vitamins A, C, and E for antioxidant protection, which is a nice added bonus.
While I’m not a lip liner person (I am super lazy when it comes to makeup and my lip line is pretty solid and I don’t usually experience feathering, so it’s a step I usually skip), the Marvelous MOXIE Lip Liners ($15) were better than most liners I’ve tried. We got our hand on four of the ten new shades:
Jazzed – bright blue-pink
Pumped – medium dark nude
Liberated – light nude
Amped – true red
The lip liners are in a black tube and the pencil is retractable, but it is very thin and there is no sharpener. They do have a really nice rubber grip for better handling. It’s such a little thing, but it makes this super easy to control for a more flawless application.
Again, the color saturation is very high and once these are on, they are not budging. I actually found that a light hand is best with these because these are almost like getting the outline of your lips tattooed.
I was a little bit nervous about the Marvelous MOXIE Lipgloss ($18) because in addition to unstoppable shine, they are supposed to have a pout plumping quality, which usually ends poorly for me. (I have beyond sensitive skin, so most plumpers give me hives or blisters on and around my mouth. Super sexy, y’all!)
I was safe with bareMinerals – no allergic reaction, just a brief tingly sensation and the glorious scent of sweet peppermint. I definitely saw and felt my lips plump up and there was no stinging sensation, so YAY. The team tested out four of the fourteen shades:
Rebel – clean pink creme
Party Starter – bright coral shimmer
Dare Devil – deep berry shimmer
Smooth Talker – cool medium pink with heavy gold shimmer
The lip glosses come in a round, clear tube, with “marvelous MOXIE” emblazoned on the side. I felt my inner moxie bubbling up just reading that. The applicator is a generously sized slanted doe foot with a deeply angeled side, which made this really easy to swipe and go.
Marvelous MOXIE Lipglosses, like the lipsticks, contain anti-oxidant vitamins A, C, and E and also avocado, shea, and murumuru butters for added softness. Beautiful and smart. You’ve gotta love that – almost as much as the three hours of wear time I got from this slightly sticky consistency gloss.
As with all the bareMinerals products I’ve tried, color me impressed! I don’t know that I’ve worn anything with this kind of staying power while still leaving my lips kissably soft. I can’t wait to start collecting this entire line!

Krista resides in the middle of nowhere with her bff/hubby, an obscenely big-eared dog, and a puppy that makes feral capuchins seem mellow. She has an irrational fear of ax murder, owns more than one machete for home defense/the zombie apocalypse, and goes to sleep serenaded by the sounds of the Chupagobbler, a mythical turkey beast that roams the woods around her house. She also has an obsessive love of Tom Selleck’s moustache that is, quite frankly, alarming.
