Marvelous Moxie Lipstick - null
Speak Your Mind
My absolute favorite color is Speak Your Mind. I have very fair coloring and blue eyes and this color is the perfect soft pink color. It is my go to color year round and perfect for a work day. I also really like Never Say Never. Its a bright, vibrant pink that I like for a night out. I just apply it lightly, using a lip brush and top it off with some gloss. The Moxie lipsticks have a nice creamy consistency and long lasting color.
Really amazing lipstick
I am totally in love with this lipstick! I have porcelain skin and am always a little scared to try lip shades because they either work really well or look absolutely horrible (usually absolutely horrible haha). I decided to trust another reviewer who has light skin and really recommended the shade Get Ready, and I have no regrets. I really love the red-pink color, and it lasts a really long time. It is a bright and cheerful shade that also moisturizes and feels so amazing on the lips. Will be looking forward to taking a chance on some other shades because this lipstick is just too awesome. Also, I really like the tube being a bit harder to open because I know my cap won't accidentally detach while moving around in my purse or anything. I think it's neat.
Good lipstick, great colors
I can't comment on the container that others have complained about since I bought the "Kiss and Tell" collection which comes with sample sizes. I also received a sample of Be Free with a recent order.
This lipstick is very high quality, although for the price I'm not sure I would buy the full-sized versions except of the exceptional color Get Ready (see below). This lipstick is incredibly rich and creamy and leaves doesn't dry out my lips. I've used it with and without lipliner and haven't had any problems with bleeding (although I do not have fine lines around my mouth). When used with lipliner, and using the typical method for applying lipstick, this lipstick is long lasting and the colors and range of colors are beautiful. (For reference: the typical method is, lipliner all over lip, apply, blot, apply powder (I use some old maybelline foundation or mineral veil), and apply again, and blot. Try this method before you write this product off.)
Colors: Overall I would say the pictures are true to color (except Be Free) but the descriptions are not always.
*Go all out: Vibrant Barbie doll pink. Definitely not a good color for work but a beautiful spring color that I have not been courageous enough to wear yet. Maybe soon.
*Speak your mind: Rich ballerina pink. This color is almost pure pink with no red, purple, or orange undertones. A great every day color for spring and summer. Great with my skin tone.
*Get ready: A purplish red. I would not call this a "warm rosy pink" as the website does. I find the color to be much more red. This is my absolute favorite color of any lipstick I've owned. It's very beautiful and I believe would be a very nice go-to red for anyone with light and medium skin. I think it would appear more muted on someone with darker skin, but would still be beautiful.
*Break away: Redish-brown mauve. Not a bad color but not for me. I believe it to be a little to intense a mauve for my (very) light skin tone. There is some nice red in there but I would call the color mostly brown.
*Be bold: Blackberry. Seems to be discontinued. I don't love this color because berry isn't the color for me but it is a very nice, pure berry color if that's what you're into.
*Be free: Light caramel. This has to be the absolute ugliest color I have ever seen. It's a little less golden than a piece of caramel. Definitely not flattering for light skin, and I can't imagine it would look good on darker skin either. Definitely not a creamy "pink" nude. It is pure brown.
Bleeds into lip wrinkles
I am old (65) and getting older. This is the first lipstick of any brand that I have purchased that "bleeds" into the fine lines surrounding my lips. I don't wear a lipliner and wonder if it will help. Otherwise loved the lipstick--the color (Never Say Never), the feel (creamy and not greasy) and the wear.
Poorly designed lipstick tube
5 stars for color, staying power, and formula but 0 stars for functionality. I received a sample of "Get Ready" in my Ipsy bag and immediately bought the full size version since I loved the color. HOWEVER, there are major design flaws with the actual lipstick tube. First off it has a weird side button you push to separate the two halves of the tube. Unfortunately the button isn't effective and the top keeps coming off in my bag so I'm nervous it will stain my purse. I guess their trying to be unique with the design but its just not effective. The second issue is that the lipstick isn't secured to the tube properly. Both my trial and full size lipsticks separated from the tube and broke in half after a few uses. After spending this much money on lipstick just to have it break I probably won't be purchasing again.
Awesome color & prodcut
I bought the Call The Shots, red and I LOVE IT. It is great with my skin tone (which is pale) and it is a great lipstick in general. Yes I wish it lasted longer, all my coffee cups quickly get stained in red BUT it does stain my lips so even long after it has wiped off, they are a great shade of red. The cracking and drying complaints have nothing to do with this lipstick. If you aren't drinking enough water to hydrate nor taking care to moisturize your lips properly, of course any lipstick is going to crack, "leak", or dry out your already uncared for lips. Just like any other part of your face, you need to make certain you care for your lips properly and not rely on a lip color to do the work for you. A healthy pair of lips is going to show this color and lipstick off brilliantly. I am NOT a lipstick person, I prefer glosses and even the old Buxoms but this is definitely a winner. It looks great with or without a liner and the case it comes in is great. I have absolutely no worries that my lid will come off in my make-up bag and spoil the lipstick.
Great Color, Not So Long Lasting
I ordered this lipstick in Light It Up red and love the color, but this lipstick just does not last on your lips. Even with lip liner, this lipstick bleeds into MY fine lines around my lips, and I'm only 20. I have to reapply about once every hour or two, which is way too often for me. I am more of a lipstain than a lipstick kind of girl, so I may be biased, but having to check in the mirror every hour seems drastic to me. Make this lipstick last for at least three hours and you've got a great product.
I ordered "be free" and when I put it on I realized what a hideous color it is. It's dry and makes my lips look cracked. The taste is so disgusting it actually makes me nauseous. I have never had a bad bare escentuals product until now. My advice is to try a different product. Maybe this is just one of the odd ball products that didn't quite make the cut. Everything else I have ever bought from them has been great.
Great colors, great consistency....
Love the look and feel of these lipsticks. I just wish they stayed on better. They look great until you take a sip of coffee or eat something.
Get these lipsticks to last better, and you've got a clear winner!
It really IS marvelous!
I loved the color of "Rise up" because I figured it would wear with jeans as easily as with business attire. It looks even better on than I anticipated and feels marvelous. There's nothing "gummy" or sticky about this lipstick. Instead it feel like a lip balm while wearing like the best lipstick I've ever owned. Well done, BE.
