Review: bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Buttercream Lipgloss

So for my birthday I let myself buy 2 things from bareMinerals.  I purchased the bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Buttercream Lipgloss in Must Have Pink and the bareSkin Perfecting Veil.  Today I thought I’d let you know what I thought about the lipgloss.  They are available exclusively at Ulta for $18 and come in 12 shades (so a little something for everyone).


The packaging is really cute and almost luxe feeling.  I love the gold components.  I do worry that the gold writing will wear off eventually, but I suppose that it wouldn’t matter as the color name is on the bottom of the tube.


The formula itself is absolutely amazing!  I do really love the original Marvelous Moxie lipgloss, so if you like that I can guarantee you’ll love this.  The scent on these are different from the original since the original uses peppermint oil for some light tingling.  These smell kind of like lipstick.  Luckily the scent doesn’t last very long on the lips because it’s an awful scent to me. 

As I stated before, these also don’t have the peppermint oil stinging, so that’s good news for all of you that can’t take the tingle.  I don’t mind either way, but I do appreciate that they took it out for all those sensitive lip people.

The lipgloss is so smooth and great.  I feel like they’re even smoother than the original because I don’t think any of them have any shimmer, glimmer, or glitter particles.  This is the part that I like the most since I’m not a huge fan of glitter chunks.  The formula itself is about a sheer-medium coverage, depending on the color of course.



The color I got, Must Have Pink, is just perfect for my everyday color.  It’s about a medium pink color with a warm-neutral undertone.  I really love this color and I’m glad it’s what I went with for my first color.  Now I want them all…

Overall Grade: A, really the only thing I can really deduct for is the scent.  I don’t like it at all.  It’s not sweet or vanilla-like to me.  Everything else is completely on point.  Now I just need to win the lottery to buy all the other colors 🙂

Project Pan 3.0 Update #4 – 12 Month Update

Oops…so I’m a little behind on getting this up.  Yeah, it’s been a little hectic around my house lately.  Anyway, I still wanted to get this up, so here it is :).  I hope I can do better this quarter as I feel like I’ve been failing on this quite a bit.

Here are the reasons I have for the extra product I have to use up:
23. I bought a travel size of the Tarte BB Tinted Primer.  I love this stuff!
24. I bought a mini version of the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye concealer.
25. & 26. I bought the Pretty Amazing Lipgloss Collection at the bareMinerals outlet 🙂
27. I just had to buy the bareMinerals Tutorial: Neutral Eyes kit.  If you know me at all, you know I can’t resist a neutral eye palette from bareMinerals if my life depended on it.

Blue = Trial-Sized
Purple = Full-Sized
