It’s incredible how one slick of lipstick can lift you up and change an outfit. The power of a pigmented bullet of wax is almost comparable to a personal shopper – it makes you look at things differently and try out combinations you wouldn’t normally dare to dream of. Bare Minerals are a brand that, until recently, preferred to remain cautionary when it came to the colour palette – considering they’re well established for their seamless-looking foundations, you can understand why. With the launch of their new ‘Moxie’ lipsticks, lipglosses and lip liners, they’re dipping their toe into a more colourful pond, to the rapturous applause of cosmetic lovers across the world.
‘Moxie’ is an American slang word that means “shameless sass, all-out
spirit, total passion overload with plenty of attitude to match,” which
is perfectly encapsulated with the 18 different shades on offer. This
pink hue called ‘Never Say Never’ is probably my most loved lipstick,
ever. The bullet is full of moisture-rich ingredients to help nourish
and condition lips, leaving them feeling and looking ultra-kissable.
It’s a dream to apply, with no drag or dryness whatsoever – one coat of
this is almost as nourishing as applying a lipbalm. The colour is so
strong and long-lasting, making this the perfect lipstick to wear all
day long and into the evening too; there’s no need to worry that your
lips will dry, the colour will bleed or you’ll end up with a dodgy
looking lipstick smudge. Paired with a Moxie lipliner to frame the
colour and a Moxie lipgloss to finish, your Bare Minerals pout will have
you standing out from the crowd in a matter of moments. There are some
incredible shades within the range, including bright reds and purples,
as well as more neutral pinks and browns for those not quite up for a
colour challenge, so it’s well worth having a look at the fabulous new
colour palette now available at a Bare Minerals counter near you.
Available now in 18 shades priced £16.00 each. The shade above is ‘Never Say Never’ – find out more on their website here.
