Marvelous Moxie Lipstick - null
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.
