My 1 yr Blogiversary Giveaway

My 1 year Blogiversary!

Wow!  Where has the time gone?

I’ve learned a lot about blogging this past year and the most important thing that I’ve learned is to just have fun and be yourself. I still have loads more to learn. The hours of learning html codes, backgrounds, taking pictures for posts, trying to get organized, trying to find a balance between single motherhood, full-time Active Duty military member, and blogging. It’s been a busy yet awesome year!

I don’t know what took me so long to start a blog? If I knew what I know now, I would have started years ago!

I’ve worked with some great companies and their PR departments. I’ve put my face through some things. Some good and some bad. The bad, my skin is still recovering from. Urg. But I think without me being into blogging I probably wouldn’t have been so focused and made sure that I continued searching for a great skin care routine, Holy Grails, sticking to my fitness routines, conversing with my readers, making friends with other bloggers, testing & reviewing my latest beauty finds, etc.

Along the way I’ve collected quite the beauty collection to add to my already stockpiled collection.

With that being said, I decided to do a giveaway. 12 products, 1 product for each month that I’ve been blogging.

Y’all ready for a 1 year Blogiversary Giveaway?!!!

Product Review bareMinerals Moxie Get Ready

bareMinerals Moxie Get Ready Lipstick

Moxie Get Ready bareMinerals lipstick is an ultra moisturizing, full coverage, butter gliding, and voluptuous pout making lipstick!

Seriously, it is!

Today, my daughter was going through my lip drawer stash. Of course without my knowledge and when I noticed her lip color, I asked what she was wearing and she gave me that, Uh oh, I got caught look.

She went and got it and I totally forgot I had it.

So, she’s my model for this post.

bareMinerals Moxie Get Ready lipstick

Yes, having a teenage daughter that wears my clothes and sneaks in my beauty woman’s cave already sucks. Plus she just started high school. All that spells is TROUBLE!

At least she helping me use up some of my products. So I don’t feel all that bad when I have stuff just collecting dust because I’m using something else.

The Life of Makeup Hoarder!

I wonder if they’ll come up with a reality show for that?? Hmmmmmm…..

The bareMinerals Moxie lipstick line is hydrating and packed with pigments that give us those,  “I can’t stop staring at your lips look.”

bareMinerals Moxie Get Ready lipstick

bareMinerals Moxie “Get Ready” lipstick is a warm rosy pink that you can wear throughout the year. It’s work friendly and it doesn’t bleed, so you can wear it without a lip liner.

On the BareMinerals website, it is described as:

Make an impact with Marvelous Moxie ™ Lipstick. Creamy, super-saturated, ultra-pigmented color glides on like butter for full coverage in a rich satin finish. Lips look fuller and more voluptuous. An infusion of minerals revitalizes lips for a healthy-looking pout, while a moisture-loaded hydrating complex helps to nourish and condition with Abyssinian Oil and Omega Fatty Acids for supple, baby-soft smoothness. All the while, an encapsulated vitamin A, C and E complex helps to deliver antioxidant defense, so you’re ready for anything—and everything.

This is the only shade I have from the collection and I’m totally happy with it.

If you were to choose just one from the collection, then this is the one that I’d recommend.

At $18, you can’t beat the benefits.

Have y’all tried any of the bareMinerals Moxie lipsticks?
