bareMinerals: Moxie - Cool As Ice Lip Gloss Set

Swatches & Review

When I first saw this set, I decided against it because I really wanted Buxom's Time to Shine since I collect Buxom yearly. After purchasing the Time to Shine, I ended up purchasing this set as well since I have not tried bareMineral's Moxie line yet. I love Buxom so I decided to give these a try. Moxie's Cool as Ice set is part of bareMinerals Holiday collection. There is Cool as Ice, and Hot to Trot (which I am still deciding on purchasing).
This lip gloss set contains six lip glosses. Five of the six shades are shimmery and one of them has a creamy finish.
Dare Devil: Shimmery Blackberry
Gutsy: Fuchsia Berry - Slightly Shimmery
Hot Ticket: Shimmery Hot Pink
Fashionably Late: Shimmery Opal
Socialite: Shimmery Pink
Rebel: Creamy Mauve/Neutral Pink

From this set, it seems like only Dare Devil and Rebel are part of their permanent lip gloss line.

Overall, I like this set. Lately, I have been buying a lot of lip products and I think Moxie is going to be one of my favorites like Buxom is. It has a slight scent, which reminds me of Cherry Cola and it has a slight tingling effect. If you do not like Buxom because of the tingling and the strong peppermint taste and feeling, Moxie is definitely a lot less tingly than Buxom lip glosses. It also does not feel very strong on the lips like Buxom's tend to feel on the lips, which may be good for some people who do not like bareMineral's Buxom line. They sheer out a bit when it is on the lips, but the colors from these lip glosses are build-able to the shade you would want it to be. It is not too sticky when it is on the lips, but after it dries out, it starts feeling sticky, which is one of the only downside to these.
This set retails for $25 for 6 lip glosses where each contain 0.07oz of product, which is a little less than half of a full-size Moxie. The size of these are the same as the Buxom Time to Shine Lip Glosses, but the Buxom is $4 more, so if you are debating between those two, I would choose the Moxie & the Moxie is more pigmented on the lips than Buxom. If you have not tried Moxie's these will be a good starting kit. You can purchase the Cool as Ice set from Sephora, Bare Escentuals, Ulta & Nordstrom and if you are interested in the Hot to Trot set, which has more warm toned glosses, you can purchase those at Bare Escentuals, Ulta & Nordstrom (I wish Sephora had them!).

If you click it, you will see the shimmer in the lip glosses a lot better.

What do you think about Moxies? Do you already love the Buxom lip glosses?


  1. I got Dare Devil in my ipsy bag. I love it!

    1. I think everyone got Dare Devil so now, I have two! I like the shade so I definitely don't mind :)

  2. I'm in love with my fashionably late and it makes me sad it's not part of the perm line.
