Swatches: Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipsticks in Get Ready and Speak Your Mind

I liked the Bare Minerals Moxie lipstick I received as a sample so much, I bought a couple more on a recent work trip to the States.  To complement the bright red I already had, I went a bit more subtle, which is pretty damn unusual for me.

I chose Speak Your Mind, described as bubblegum pink, and Get Ready, described as a rich rosy pink.

I was drawn to Speak Your Mind by it's coolness - many neutral pinks are too beige or warm, subsequently making me look like a corpse.  Speak Your Mind is a lovely cool pale pink, not so pale it looks overly sugary, but pale enough to be a lovely soft neutral.  It's a great alternative to beige toned nude.

Get Ready is fairly neutral toned too, and sits right on the line between rosy pink and a muted red.  It looks fantastic with a bronze eye, and isn't too overpowering to go with a smoky eye either.

I'm really pleased with the two colours I chose - and even more pleased by the fact that they were a mere $18 each, compared to £16 in the UK.  Find them online in the UK at the Bare Minerals website - or beg a soon-to-be-travelling friend to bring you a few back from the US.
