Pretty in pink, my friends. Pretty in pink. bareMinerals Life of the Party Marvellous Moxie lip gloss is a sheer bubblegum pink high shine gloss with a mild plumping formula, with a slanted fuzzy applicator and a sensible lockable lid – no unexpected surprise gloss oil spills! Shea, murumuru and avocado oils give it a lush creamy mouthfeel offset by a delicate cool tingle from a teeny touch of peppermint oil. If you’re not inclined to turn your lips into cinders with exxxtreme peppery lip plumpers – and I’m not, oh my god, I’ll never do that again – and want a soft pillowy lip without any pain, then this formula is just the ticket.
Life of the Party is a wearable sheer-to-medium candy pink gloss without any sparkles or glitter. It looks like a neon Friday night electro pink in the tube, but on my kisser it transforms into a dainty ladylike pink that’s more sweet and innocent than raucous and loud. Hella pretty, yo. I’ve layered Life of the Party over a medium shell pink liner to transform it into a full colour lip, but as with most glosses I prefer it over a bare lip to create a soft cellophane effect.
This is the first Marvellous Moxie lip gloss I’ve used – in fact it’s the first bareMinerals product I’ve used, full stop – and I’m rather taken by it. Lip plumpers are something I’ve avoided for quite a while, but this mild formula gave my already relatively full lips an extra lil’ something without stinging or burning, and felt supremely comfortable for three or four hours between applications.
Life of the Party? More like rather lovely.
