BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Hypnotist Lipgloss Review

BareMinerals' Marvelous Moxie Hypnotist Lipgloss is the prettiest lip product I have ever come across.  image Noh, seriously! It's like... Mermaid in a tube! 

BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Hypnotist Lipgloss

This is my first time trying out a BareMinerals product, I have heard amazing things about their mineral foundation and primer which I have yet to try. I did recently purchased the 30 Day Complexion Starter Kit from Sephora and I am really looking forward to trying it out and see why everyone raves about it.

Today I am reviewing the BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in shade Hypnotist. This lipgloss is described as a high-shine, hydrating lipgloss that is infused with natural ingredients that smooth and hydrate lips with sheer and pure colour. It claims to achieve a "fuller-lips-look"and "lasting-colour". 

Hypnotist is described as a "holographic violet peach". With the holographic effect, the lipgloss tube looks different outdoor in the sun and indoor without the sun.

In the sun it seems to create a neon, aqua, violet, pink and it seems like a colour that makes you curious about what it would really look like on the lips.

Indoor without the sun, Hypnotist has a subtle, mermaid colour that mostly looks purple.

BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss comes packaged in a standard lipgloss tube with silver detailing. It also has a standard doe-foot applicator.

I like that the overall material used for the packaging is not cheap-plastic-like'; and the diamond shaped tube and see-through holographic effect makes the lipgloss tube unique.

The only negative thing I have to say about the packaging is that the lipgloss leaked when it is lying down, not only does it waste products but it is also very sticky when all these lipgloss comes out, especially when you have it stored in your bag, there is no way to make sure that the lipgloss stand-up in your bag at all time!

image FORMULA & CLAIMSimage
BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss claims the benefits of "brilliant sheer-to-medium colour", "glistening shine", "glides on satiny-smooth" and "fabulously full, deeply moisturized lips". Also, it has the clinical claims of "100% of women experienced an improvement in lip hydrating after 48 hours" and "80% of women showed an improvement in the look of lip fullness after 48 hours".

Can't say I agree with all BareMinerals claims above, but I can say 80% of these claims are true.

As I tested the lipgloss one more time before I published this review today, I worn it to work and my colleague noticed the peachy, full on "plump lips look" straight away; She immediately asked where she can buy this lipgloss.

Hypnotist is described as a "holographic violet peach", the colour looks nothing like it looks in the tube when worn on the lips.

In the lipgloss tube, Hypnotist has the holographic effect with different shades of purple, pink, aqua and green; and on the lips, it turns into a sheer peachy colour with the occasional holographic effect when wearing outdoor, in a sunny day.

Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss is not sticky, but application isn't smooth either. It took around four to five applications to cover the whole lips and it took another four coats to give that "fuller lips" look. The lipgloss offers the plump lips look without stings and hurting my lips, and it has a sweet minty, candy cane scent.

During the times I was wearing Hypnotist, I have eat and drink; and the lipgloss worn well for approximately two hours. I like that it doesn't have the bitter taste when eating while wearing the lipgloss.

Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss does keeps my lips hydrated, even hours after the lipgloss worn off.

Surprisingly not a disappointment, even though it only worn for two hours max. I like that the lipgloss is just as BareMinerals claims, it is hydrating, comfortable to wear and it gives a hint of colour that is suitable for everyday wear.

I purchased Hypnotist from Mecca Cosmetica (NZD $29.00), this product is also available to purchase on many beauty websites and stores in America.

Overall I love this lipgloss, I love the colour, the formula and the unique concept; the only thing that I wish would change is the leaky packaging, while I adore the diamond like' packaging, I certainly don't enjoy having to clean my bag every time I have it with me.

OVERALL RATING: imageimageimageimage

Have you tried the BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss range?


  1. In the tube this is just magic! I've seen swatches of the other shades from this line and I was just all starry eyed! I would love one of the stronger tinted colored ones so that there's a holographic tint visible on my bare lips but for now I don't plan on picking up any. It does looks like a layer of glass on, glad to hear it's comfortable and great for everyday wear!

    1. I thought the same ^^ don't plan on picking up any other shades anytime soon, but would still love the try the stronger tints; although, I do really like Hypnotist, it's so pretty even though it is pretty much colour-less.

    2. Kay, just wanted to tell you more about the urban decay foundation! The main things i take away is that it's a super lightweight formula with light coverage. In essence it's not something I'd reach for if I have a special occasion but for everyday it gives me flawless looking natural skin! Maybe try to get a sample if you can? :)

  2. I had a similar Moxie gloss and didn't like the stickiness of it x

  3. I would totally get this just to feel like a mermaid ;) Gorgeous bottle, and it looks lovely on!

  8. love the color of the lipgloss ^^

  9. The effect it gives off is cool. Sounds like a pretty decent lip gloss.

  10. Oh wow this shade is absolutely stunning. I love that it is a hint of color but super sheer on the lips. It gives such a great glow. I think i NEED this asap!

  11. looks absolutely gorgeous in the tube! Would be really neat if the holographic effect showed up on the lips too.
