Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick Feel The Love - Swatch and Review

  • Rose gold metallic case. I find the packaging neat, simple, with a high end touch to it. The cover slides all the way down to the base. 

  • Feel the Love is a medium rosy brown nude with a shiny cream finish.
  • The formula feels a bit thick but it's very creamy, pigmented, and applies smoothly and flawlessly. 
  • It's very hydrating and the color last for up to 5 hours before I notice signs of fading.
  • It has a delicious cup cake scent. 

Final Thought

I'm not sure if this is a limited edition shade but I found it at the Bare Minerals outlet store. I wished the formula was a bit lighter but otherwise, it is an outstanding formula. The fact that it is thicker also helps with keeping the lips hydrated for hours and prolong the wear of the color.

Prom Makeup & Quick Life Update

I'm still case anyone is wondering. There are a few reasons why I haven't been around much on my blog lately. 

1. My computer is extremely slow. Yes, it's time for an upgrade and I'm hoping to get a new one in the next couple months. Because of that, it makes my time on the computer not very enjoyable since I don't have the patience to wait around, I've lost the desire to be on it.
2. Most importantly, I've hit a huge lack of motivation. I don't feel like anyone cares much my posts so I figure it wouldn't matter much if I don't stick to a routine schedule. 
3. Prom,, this is happening too fast for me. I can't believe my second kid is done with high school already. I feel like I blinked and a decade has gone by already. I'm at a point in my life where I feel something is still missing. Not quite sure what I should do with myself.

Prom week was pretty hectic for me. I wore many hats: seamstress, hair stylist, makeup artist, and photographer. First, we received my daughter's dress just 2 weeks before prom even though we ordered it like a month ago. I was gonna have it altered by a tailor but was too busy with work to find one so eventually I decided to save some money and do it myself at the last minute, smh....
Also at the last minute, I discovered that my daughter's dress was too small. At that point I was seriously freaking out. I'm not sure what happened because the size that we tried in store fitted her perfectly. The one she got even though the size was supposedly the same, it was a couple inches too small! I had to think fast and had the genius idea of creating a corset-like deal on the back of the dress. I purchased a few round jewelry hardware from the craft store and sew them along the zipper line and then used a medium size ribbon and weaved through the loops, which made the top of the dress totally adjustable. One problem solved, one more to go. The dress was way too long for her and had too many layers of tulle I needed to cut out. This project literally took me 8 hours to complete.

I curled her hair but hair styling is not my strong suit and by the time we were ready to take pictures, the curls went flat. Sorry for the lack of detailed pictures on the makeup. I was rushed rushed and forgot.

For Vanessa's makeup I did a smoky teal/purple:

For Mandy's makeup, I did a gold/black cut crease smokey look:
  • MAC Paint Pot Treasure Hunt on lid
  • MAC Pigment Old Gold and MAC Glitter Reflects Gold on lid
  • On the crease, Kat Von D Shade + Light palette (Samael and Shax)
  • Anastasia Dipbrow pomade Dark Brown on brows
  • NARS Laguna bronzer for contour
  • Milani Baked Blush Rose D'Oro for cheeks
  • Revlon lip butter Tutti Fruitti
