bareminerals feel the love marvelous moxie lipstick with comparisons



Of course I could not get the True Romantic Ready 4.0 eyeshadow without the accompanying Feel The Love Marvelous Moxie Lipstick ($18). My love of these lipsticks is well documented here and here. This formula was a little different from the others I have tried because it has shimmer, all the others are creams. The shimmer gives it a nice "rose gold" feel, while still being a great daytime neutral lipstick. It has a slightly drier texture compared to the creams, which has the benefit of great staying power. This easily sticks around through lunch before I need to touch up. I prefer a light application with this over a lip balm, otherwise it builds up and becomes a thick layer easily. The best part of this lipstick is of course the packaging, the solid "rose gold" metal case is worthy of a luxury brand. Despite the average formula, the color and packaging really make this lipstick stand out.
