Press Sample & Affiliate Links:

February is almost gone, March is almost here…then it will be April, which means spring time is coming and more bright lips are on the way (inserting a gigantic smile with a *wink*). To get me in the mood for our up-coming spring weather, I am trying out the bareMinerals Marvelous MoxieTM Lipstick in Light It Up. This is my first time trying out a lipstick from bareMinerals, so we will see how well it works and if the color is spring-bright worthy.

Bare_Minerals_Light_It_Up_lipstick_1Are you kidding me? Not only is the Light It Up lipstick gorgeous, but it made my lips feel so incredibly good. I also loved that it had a slight peppermint smell to it….so yummy!


Bare_Minerals_Light_It_Up_lipstick_7I think the packaging is unique. It has a click button that releases the lid when you press on it. This is fun for me and also my 3.5 year old who clicked it open half a million times in 1 minute.

My Description: Vibrant Melon suites this well.



Over Thoughts and Opinions

I am obsessed with this color! Sometimes melon colors don’t look great on everyone, but I think even Ezra’s 82 year old grandma could pull this one off. It is full coverage, but when you blot it down, it turns into a gorgeous tint. For me, it did a good job of brightening up my entire face. Recently my life has been kind of chaotic and I am 100% sure I look drained all.the.time. So, using this color instantly added that much needed splash of color to my face and made me look more awake. Last, I don’t think it did anything for making my lips look more full, but I am fine with that.

Price: $18.00 (This is a decent price)

Rating: I am in love with you. (5 points)
