Review: bareMinerals Magnificent seven (Best of Marvelous Moxie™ Lipgloss set)

bareMineral Mag Seven   Press Sample

 

With so many beauty gift boxes to choose from, it can be hard to decide which one to buy for yourself, or to actually give as a gift. This is exactly why I love the bareMinerals MAGNIFICENT seven lipgloss set, $18. It makes a perfect gift for you and someone else. Priced at under $20 dollars, with a value of $48, it works great as a stocking stuffer, secret Santa gift, one of the eight nights of Hanukkah gifts, or if you just want to try the Marvelous Moxie™ glosses. As the box states, “This collection of pocket-sized Marvelous Moxie™ Lipglosses includes seven best-selling shades for fabulously full, deeply moisturized lips that won’t quit. Each luscious, vibrant lipgloss slips on satiny-smooth, delivering sheer-to-medium coverage with lasting glistening shine. Lips look fuller, more voluptuous- and simply magnificent.” The seven pocket-sized glosses include, Daredevil, Ringleader, Rule Breaker, Maverick, Spark Plug, Stunner, and Rebel.

 I absolutely adore lipglosses, but I must confess this review marked the first time I tried any Marvelous Moxie shades. I was definitely impressed by the pigmentation, the hydrating effect, and the tingling of the mint on my lips. After trying each shade, I was craving a candy cane because these glosses just smell like the holidays. I will say, that if you don’t like that minty tingling feeling on your lips, you definitely won’t like these glosses. I also really enjoyed the variety of shades that came in this kit, even though it made it hard to pick a favorite. I will say that while I liked the sizes of these glosses, as they are great for tossing in your purse or for adding to your travel makeup bag, the applicator made it a bit difficult to apply the gloss. I had to dip the doe foot wand into the gloss several times to get an even application. I’m hoping this is only because of the size, and not an issue with the regular sized glosses. 2014-10-29 01.15.31 Also, I didn’t find that these glosses really had staying power. I had to apply them several times during the day, even without drinking or eating. I don’t mind having to reapply after eating or drinking, but I’m not so much a fan of doing it just from talking or going about my day. It makes me feel like a lipgloss addict. Daredevil, Ringleader, and Rule Breaker

The first three shades in the set are a sparkling blackberry (Daredevil), a lavender pink pearl (Ringleader), and a sparkling nude (Rule Breaker). The pigmentation of Daredevil was amazing. It is a beautiful fall/winter color that will work well for day or night. This shade was my favorite of the first group. I found Ringleader and Rule Bender to be a bit to pale to work as a gloss by itself, unless you just want to add a bit of glitter and shine to your lips. I do think both would work great as glosses to use over other lipsticks, with Rule Bender adding a nudeish overtone, and Ringleader a slight pinky overtone. Maverick, Spark Plug, Stunner, and Rebel

The other four shades in the set include a rosewood shimmer (Maverick), a dusty pink pearl (Spark Plug), a pure magenta (Stunner), and a pink mauve (Rebel). I would say that Stunner, Maverick, and Rebel were my favorites in this group. The most pigmented of this group is Maverick and Stunner. Maverick is a gorgeous brown, with slight brick red undertones. It creates the perfect 90s lip, which is very on trend, and is also an ideal fall and winter shade. Stunner is a beautiful magenta, which is perfect for creating bright holiday looks that will make your lips pop. The last two glosses, Spark Plug and Rebel, are gorgeous nudes that I would consider part of the “your lips but better” looks. The pink pearl essence of Spark Plug and the mauvey pink color of Rebel, go great with almost any look, especially for those minimal makeup days when you want to look yummy while popping out to the store to pick up something or someone yummy. Bottom line: With a fabulous price point, you can’t go wrong with the bareMinerals MAGNIFICENT seven lipgloss set. It makes a great gift for gloss newbies or gloss junkies because it offers a variety of shades to try, which will look amazing on every skin type. Have you tried the Marvelous Moxie glosses?

  13. These look nice but I’m just not a huge lipgloss wearer. If I do I prefer to go with super pigmented ones, more like liquid lipsticks than glosses.
