Marvelous Moxie Lipstick - null
Brighter than the picture
I got the shade "Get Ready". I was originally looking for a natural-ish or more subtle shade to wear on an everyday basis. This turned out to be a little too much for that. I might have to look into the light brown shades for everyday. But, it's a really fun and bright color that's not out there if you wear it out to lunch dates or even a casual day at work. Too bright for the days where I feel lazy and don't want to do more than slap on some bb cream and subtle, matte shade of lipstick. I'm Indian so the pink really stands out on my lips. Overall, it can be worn everyday if you're the type to get up early every morning and go the whole nine yards - foundation, eye liner, mascara, a bit of neutral eye shadow and lipstick. It's very easy to put on, nicely pigmented, color does seem to last and doesn't dry out your lips. I put a bit of vaseline on underneath it since I have very dry lips, and that smooths out the lipstick, making it look amazing!
Color is bright orange, not as shown online
I like this lipstick but the color is not as shown online. It is actually a bright orange and I can't use it by itself. I have to use it with another mocha shade to calm it down. I also ordered another lipstick that I thought was a mocha shade but it was too dark. It's really difficult to get a shade I like by ordering online. I have to go to the store to try it out.
Great great product! (color is off on the webpage)
I love Marvelous Moxie Lipstick and owns/tried a couple of colors myself:
My skin color: medium beige - slightly tanned.
It started with a sample of Be free, which is a creamy nude color. I like the texture but you need to be careful with the color since it is a true nude. It will make you look pale if you don't have your cheeks and eyes done.
And then I got a medium sample of Speak your mind. It is more like a baby pink. Very pretty, creamy, and long-lasting.
I tried another two colors in the boutique: get ready and go the distance.
Get ready is a good pink for everyone. My friend got one full size. For me, Go the distance is really interesting to try cuz I was afraid to wear coral color but it looks good on tanned skin. And I am so glad I tried it on. its very pigmented and I got lots of compliment that day. (Will definitely get a full size).
All in all, the texture is creamy and really moisture my lip. It doesn't dry quick like tarte lip stain, (like their foundation though). But it is a cup marker so be careful.
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.
I am not usually a lipstick person, but decided to try it since I basically love everything in the BM line. This lipstick is the best I have ever tried. The only thing that would make it 5 stars instead of 4 is to be a little bit more lasting. Otherwise, the colour saturation is amazing, glides on smoothly, it feels DELICIOUS on my lips, no other way to describe it. Will be buying this in more shades.
Lip Balm all grown up
I am not a lipstick person, I am usually a lipgloss or tinted lip balm person. But after falling in love with the Moxie lipgloss I thought I would try the lipstick. It is amazing! The case is neat too. I purchased the Make Your Move shade and it is perfect for just a little color. I look forward to trying a darker shade for dressing up in my Perfect 10 pack!
Wonderful Lipsticks ~ Love Them!!!
I adore this new formula, and the inspirational names as well ~ keep up the great work with new innovations!!!
Adore this lipstick!
I cannot get enough of this lipstick! Break Away is my absolute favorite. Subtle, beautiful, hydrates, and stays in place. When I want something a touch darker I enjoy Stand Out. I have also tried Call the Shots which turns a touch too orange on me, Rise Up which is very subtle, and Raise the bar which is not subtle at all! Over all this is a fantastic product.
Lead the Way - a wearable dark lipstick
I was looking for a wearable berry lipstick when I came across Lead the Way. At first I was sure that it was too dark for daily wear, but the wonderful thing is that it has buildable coverage - meaning a light swipe will get you this pretty pink-berry stain and more applications can get you the dark dramatic almost brown color (use lip liner). Either way, the color is beautiful. My lips dry out easily, but this is super smooth and has a velvet finish.
Pros and Cons
I have Get Ready in both the full size and the mini from the All the Faves Kit. I love the color of the lipstick and the feel so I bought it in the full size after trying it in the kit. It makes my lips pop and it feels a lot more natural than other lipsticks. However, I prefer having the mini sampler one I received than the normal sized because I have had problems with this one's packaging. The lipstick itself seems like it is about to break and it has scraped on the sides of the tube every time I use it. I do not apply a lot of pressure when using it either because I am afraid it will break off. It almost seems like it's melting too, which is strange because I keep it in a cool bathroom that doesn't have any windows. I am going to try freezing it to see if that helps. The mini did not seem to have the same problems and I prefer using that one because the color is fabulous!
Dare to go dark
For years I was told that dark lipsticks make thin lips like mine look bad. Lately I've decided to test that and took a chance on Lead the Way. Wow! The color is amazing, and the lipstick itself really is like butter. Goes on very smooth and feels luxurious on your lips.
nice high end lipstick
One of my favorite high end lipsticks to splurge on. I love the packaging and the lipstick is creamy, smooth and rich in color. Almost glides on your lips, doesn't tug or pull. I actually like these more than MAC.
So happy with this purchase!
I had the opportunity to see these lipsticks in person before I picked one and I will be back for more! I got this in 'Lead the Way' which is the darker looking berry color... and it is AMAZING! By far my favorite lipstick I own! I am a fair girl and never would have picked this out from the description but I am in love with it! This lipstick can generate so many different looks from a beautiful berry stain to a deep vampy fall lip! It goes gorgeous under lipgloss and I have no problems with it migrating onto my teeth or outside my lip lines. 'Lead the Way' is the PERFECT fall color if that is what you are going for! You could even use it well into spring using it as a lighter stain. I intend on trying more colors, but seriously don't be scared by this dark one! Gorgeous color!!
The name makes me laugh
I love this lipstick. The color is tame enough to be perfect for the office and interviews, but it's also great to pair with a smokey eye, so I don't feel like I'm too over done.
Of course the name makes me laugh. How some thing so understated can be named "speak your mind" I don't know, but I love it.
Soft, moisturizing, and luxurious, this lipstick is part of my everyday look and I am never bored with it.
I'll admit it, I have a few brands that I love, scratch that, loved! This lipstick tops them all! Love the smooth and moisturizing look and feel and high pigment color of this product! Also looks great blotted for a matte, more subtle look or under gloss!
My first Bare Escentuals lipstick. Bought Raise The Bar. I was looking for a pearly raspberry and it is perfect! Love the minty smell!
Only lipstick I'm happy to wear
I've always had an issue with all lipsticks and glosses I've tried in the past. I'd wear them at times for color, but went without as much as possible. I got on board with the 100% Natural Lipgloss when I started buying BE a couple of months ago, and then fell absolutely in love with Marvelous Moxie lipsticks & glosses. I've never put anything on my lips that felt so amazing...to the point that I feel ridiculous saying it and don't even know how to describe it.
I will agree with a few other reviewers that the downsides are that you can't always guarantee the color, so for those of us lucky enough to have a boutique around, go make use of it!
I have not yet had the issue that some of you have had of the lipstick melting, but I always carry it in my purse or leave it at home - I don't like anything but powder sitting in my car on a hot day.
This is by far my favorite lipstick!!! It is light, creamy and very hydrating!!! I can't wait to buy more colors!! Lovely purchase :)
Feels great but both have broken.
I bought two of these lovely lipsticks. They feel great on my lips. Honestly I don't think I have found a better lipstick.
The only let down is they both broke! They have broken at the base. I returned the first one which broke the second time I used it. They gave me a refund and replaced the lipstick which broke too. However, now my favorite red broke. I am not sure that I want to spend the money on them since this seems to be a regular thing.
I would say this is not as hydrating as some reviewers say, at least not for me, but it stays on a long time -- much longer than any other lipstick I have. I got the raise the bar color and LOVE it. it has a nice shimmer to it. I wish they would make more colors with shimmer in this line.
This lipstick is so creamy, hydrating and long lasting. So worth getting! I'm so impressed with the Live Large lip color/Revved lipliner I have, that I'm seriously thinking of getting 4 more WITH the liners that compliment them! I'm glad I have other colors to choose from!
