Hope you are all having an amazing time! The temperature is hitting the lows in Hyderabad, we are feeling tiny chills in the air.. how are things on your side? Today, I will review a lip gloss for you called the Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss Merry Maker. Lip Glosses are not my thing and I usually give them away to my friends or cousins! I got this one as a gift, and the moment I saw it, I immediately made out that this lippy was one awesome thing that I had to try no matter what!!
Price: This beauty is priced at $18
Product Description: This high-shine, hydrating lip gloss contains a nourishing blend of shea, avocado, and murumuru butters. Achieve fuller-looking, pillowy lips and lasting color with this gentle formula.

Packaging: The lip gloss is nicely packed in a long transparent tube with a black uneven cap! Marvelous moxie is written on the body while the bottom has the shade name “Merry Maker”! The name of the shade actually emphasizes my happiness when I got this baby! It comes with a doe-tip applicator which is pretty big and applies the color evenly on the lips!! The packaging is sturdy and not prone to breakage!
Texture: The texture is commendable because most lip glosses tend to be sticky and annoyingly make your hair stick to your lips! But, this is amazing as it feels cushiony soft on my lips without any added stickiness! It also makes the lips plumper to some extent!
My Experience with the Product:
Color: Okay, I had one favorite lip gloss that I used almost all the time from Collection 2000 called Sundae! But, I could never get my paws on that one after I finished the older tube I owned and then I got this and all I could do was Make Merry!!! This lip gloss has a beautiful pink color, which looks prett-aaa-yy on the lips! It makes the lips appear so nice and healthy and adds a beautiful sheen!
Color pay-off: Being a lip gloss, it is quite sheer, but it does add a very beautiful effect to my lips! Even though, I have fairly pigmented lips, it does hide it to a good extent! I love…love… the way my lips look after putting this on! It looks good solo, or when teamed up with a lipstick or lip liner, it will completely change the look of any lipstick or liner! Genius isn’t it? The sheen that it offers makes the lips more voluptuous and keeps them moisturized due to the presence of a blend of avocados, shea and muru-muru!
Fragrance: Needless to say, I like fragrances in most of my make-up stuff and this one has a nice vanilla fragrance to it, again something, that makes me drool!
Staying power: I do not expect a lot in this department from a lip gloss, because they do tend to wash off after a while or so! This one stays put for a good two hours, until I eat or drink something! It does transfer on the rim of the glass when I drink something! But, it’s okay! I still like it despite its low staying power!
