bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie ‘Rebel’ Lipgloss Review

Today I’ll be reviewing a very generous sample of bareMinerals’ Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss that I received in my VidCon goodie bag. I got it in the shade ‘Rebel‘, which I would describe as a pinky mauve, your-lips-but-better kind of colour. The lipgloss comes in a very sturdy and well-made packaging that doesn’t look or feel cheap, which definitely lets you know that you’re dealing with a high street product, and the applicator is just your regular doe foot one.

The texture of the lipgloss is quite thick, but it applies evenly and offers sheer-to-medium coverage. Unfortunatelly, it is a bit sticky, which definitely turns me off, because I’m not too fond of sticky lipglosses. And another few things that bother me are the peppermint scent and the mild stinging sensation, which are very typical of lipglosses with the plumping effect. I know that a lot of people love that kind of lipglosses, because they are supposed to make your lips look fuller, but I personally find them quite uncomfortable.

Despite that, I do have to admit it looks quite nice on my lips. The lipgloss doesn’t have any glitters in it, so it gives my lips a very pretty creamy sheen, and it also doesn’t dry out my lips or slide off the edges. For those of you wondering about the staying power, I would say it’s pretty average. The lipgloss stays on for a few hours, but I find that it loses that wet-like finish quite quickly. 

All and all, I think bareMinerals’ Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in ‘Rebel’ is a very nice eyeryday kind of lipgloss for those of you that don’t mind a bit of tingling and stickiness. Because the shade is so universal, it could work on a lot of different people, and as the lipgloss is not completely opaque, it probably looks nice over the lipsticks as well. 

Have any of you maybe tried out this lipgloss yourself? What do you think about it? And if you’re a bit more familiar with bareMinerals, I would love to know what you favourite bareMinerals products are!

    Eek, this would not sit well with me at all. I really don't like sticky lip glosses. I have a habit of accidentally flicking hair into my face & I end up a pink sticky mess!The colour is really nice though. I think I'd just prefer it in a matte lipstick!Kerys | Little Bo Blab-xo

    The colour is gorgeous but, like you, I can't stand overly sticky glosses! I'm much more of a lipstick kinda gal!Rosie

    Do zdaj še nisem naletela na lipglos, ki mi ne bi totalno izsušil ustnic :/. Tale pa zveni božansko + odtenek je čudovit :)!xx

    Barva je zelo lepa, samo mene tudi odbijajo sticky glosi, tisti s plumping effect pa še bolj… Vem da so večini všeč, samo meni so grozno moteči na ustnicah :/
