Glitter lovers of the world, rejoice… it’s partytime! The holiday gift sets from bareMinerals are finally here, and this year they’re offering a world of spellbinding wonder for your lips. The bareMinerals Show Me the Shimmer icon gift set ($25) packs six shimmering mini Marvelous Moxie Lipglosses into one value-priced set that will satisfy anyone’s craving for sparkle.


I was already a fan of the Marvelous Moxie formula, a rich, moisturizing, long-lasting gloss that always makes my lips look full and healthy. But this was my first exposure to Moxie with sparkle, and wow! Where do I begin?


bareMinerals Show Me the Shimmer icon contains three warm-toned and three cool-toned shades of glittery gloss, a range of colors that covers any situation in which you need to sparkle:


Crowd Pleaser – sheer yellow gold with gold glitter
Superstar – sheer copper with copper and magenta glitter (bareMinerals called this a “holographic teal prism” – which I just didn’t see ~Stef)
Icon – sheer warm pink with magenta glitter


Scene Stealer – sheer plummy pink with lilac glitter
Head Turner – sheer light, cool pink with light magenta glitter
Femme Fatale – sheer dark berry with berry glitter

All of the colors give a sheer wash of pigment and tons of sparkle, with the exception of pigment-packed Femme Fatale, which has the most obvious base color, a rich, dark wine. Despite all the glitter, the gloss does not have the annoying, gritty feel that usually keeps me away from similar sparklers. Instead, Moxie has a thick, slippery texture, and my lips feel full, plump and satiny-soft. The gloss has a nice minty scent and no taste at all.

The Moxie formula is clinically tested to leave lips soft and moisturized

Tubes contain plenty of gloss, but are small enough to tuck into a purse or pocket
A $54 value, this combo is a bargain at a mere $25

Limited Edition and going fast
If you don’t like glitter, cross this kit off your list

After testing this set, I can say bareMinerals Show Me the Shimmer packs a bounty of glitter gloss into a gift box that will make the holidays and the whole year bright for any sparkle-lovers on your gift list.

  1. Super cute set! I actually love the sheerness. this set is a PERFECT gift or stocking stuffer for a young budding makeup addict. It’s affordable and a quality brand!

  2. @terboterp — Nice run down on this set. I am a big fan of bare minerals line of Moxie’s. I love value sets that give you opportunity to try so many colors.

  3. @turboterp, nicely done, as always! This is about as good as it comes in a gift. I love “Marvelous Moxie,” and the colors in this kit could not be more seductive (my kingdom for “Femme Fatale!”). Sephora has a $20 off coupon and so this set could be secured for a mere $5.00. WOW!

  4. These would be beyond awesome in my stocking or as a gift for my sisters in their stockings! Great write up,@turboterp on this too! A couple of these have turned my head… lol! Head Turner, and Femme Fatale! Nice!!

  5. VERY tempting review–darn you, haha! I’ve only tried the Buxom lip polish, which I really like, and these MM glosses look so lustrous and moisturizing. Also, for the record, I’m pretty much always pro-glitter.

  6. I am a big fan of Marvelous Moxie. I own Dare Devil which is a gorgeous dark berry with a bit of sparkle. It is so lovely and feels fantastic on. I don’t mind the addition of more sparkle with this set. It should be perfect for special occasions and holidays. I will absolutely try to get my hands on this set. This would make a great Christmas gift as well.
