One of my Ulta Black Friday pick ups was the ten buck Bare Minerals Charming Lips & Cheeks. I mean how can you go wrong here right? It contains a full size Bare Minerals Blush in Lovely Blush (sweet pink) and a full size Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss in Shining Star (dusty rose).
It’s a freaking steal!
Oh and by the way it’s totally still available at Ulta.com if you want it.
Ok, so for ten bucks I feel bad complaining but just one thing and I promise I won’t say another word. The promo image shows Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss in Shining Star as being kinda sorta a reddish shade and that’s what I was hoping for but it’s actually a dusky rose mauve. I was a little disappointed! I wish the shade was a bit more Christmas-y but hey, at this price I shouldn’t rant at all!
The Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss formula has a tacky, sticky consistency but it feels quite comfortable and lightweight on my lips. I’ve always been a lover of this formula as it wears for four hours and makes my lips look plush and shiny. It does have a sort of cinnamon, vanilla mint flavor and fragrance so just a heads up for sensitive users. As I said above this is a full size shade which typically retails for $18 so you are getting quite a value! The color is actually exclusive to this set as well. Bare Minerals calls it a dusky rose but it has a bit of mauve to it in my opinion so I’d call it a dusky mauve rose.
To pair up with the gloss they include a full size Bare Minerals Blush in Lovely Blush which is dubbed a sweet pink. To me this is a warm light garnet or cranberry shade. Don’t be scared of it as I think it can look intimidating but it applies quite lovely and light on cheeks giving my complexion a nice touch of warm reddish pink! It wears for a solid eight hours without fading and looks
quite lovely paired up with the gloss.
You can get it now at Ulta and Ulta.com.
