bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Collection review and giveaway

I adore bareMinerals makeup, so I was super excited to try out their new range of Marvelous Moxie lip products.
I was kindly sent a lipstick in shade Fly High, a lipgloss in shade Sparkplug and a lip liner in shade Empowered.
I also have the exact same products to giveaway to one of my lucky readers :)

Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in shade Fly High* £16 

I adore the formula of this lipstick. It is creamy, feels very moisturising and applies like a dream. It is super-pigmented and opaque in one sweep, making the application totally fuss free. It includes an infusion of minerals to revitalise, a hydrating complex to nourish and omega fatty acids to keep your lips soft and smooth. Once applied it feels comfortable on the lips and lasts for 2-3 hours. Darker shades might last a bit longer.  Fly High is described as a lilac shade, but it is a mixture of baby pink and lilac. It looks surprisingly good against my skin tone and it is a unique colour. I don't have anything similar in my collection. I adore the packaging of this lipstick, but I was confused at first, haha. It is a clever little invention and all you have to do is slide the silver bit down :) Marvelous Moxie Lipstick is available in 18 vibrant shades, all with a rich satin finish.

Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in shade Sparkplug* £16

Described as a dusty pink pearl shade, Sparkplug is a perfect everyday lip colour. I have been reaching for it quite often and I love it's non sticky formula. Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss is enriched with Shea, Avocado and Murumuru butters to deeply hydrate and vitamin A, C and E complex to deliver antioxidant defence.  Just like the lipstick, the lipgloss applies like dream and feels like satin. It gives sheer/medium coverage and adds a beautiful shine! It stays put for 1-2 hours, which is perfectly fine for a lipgloss. 
It is available in 14 gorgeous shades.

Marvelous Moxie Lipliner in shade Empowered £13

To perfect a dark nude lip, I have been using the Empowered lipliner. It is easy to apply and the twist-up packaging is always a bonus. The formula is just right - not too drying and not too creamy. Some lipliners exaggerate dry patches on my lips, but this one is perfectly fine. The formula is enriched with vitamin E and an infusion of minerals to pamper the lips. My favourite thing about it is it's amazing lasting power. It stays put for over 6 hours and fades evenly. It is available in 10 shades.

Overall, I am very impressed with this collection, especially the lipgloss. You can buy bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie lip products from, feelunique, lookfantastic and other stockists.
