Tarte – Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint Cruelty-free & Vegan – Review and swatches
During the Christmas and new-year time Sephora comes up with these cute holiday sets. That’s when i laid eyes on this beauty and bought one. The set i bought had 5 lip paints with matching lip crayon’s. They are still available at Sephora (some shades may not be) but as individuals and not sets.
Where to get: Take me there
Product Description: The set came in a very colorful package with ingredients info listed at the back. It has a beautiful and versatile color collection ranging from nude, pinks and red. The set had total 5 lip paints in the shades “Fab (Nude Pink), Fomo (Mauve), Bae ( Cool toned Red), Inspo (Wine color) and Chill (Berry color)” with matching lip crayons / liners of same color. They all come in small 1ml transparent plastic bottles with a black lid on top. The lid comes with an spongy applicator just as in any lip gloss, which makes it easy and smooth for applying. The consistency of these lip paints are similar to matte lipstick but only more creamier and very pigmented! The liners are equally pigmented and creamy , helps to define the lips.
Usage: You can rock these colors for a day and night look. They are moisturizing on their own, even as matte. But i would like to apply a lip balm first, since i have dry lips and it also makes the lips smooth for applying the lip paint. I draw and define my lips with the lip crayon first, blur them a little with my index finger. Then go over with the lip paint, apply them all over the lips. These are very pigmented and a little goes long way! As the name suggest they are very creamy and smooth.
Pros: This mostly has pro’s to it. My favorites has been fomo and fab <3 . I have been using them almost every day to work , they stay through my morning coffee and lunch! Easily 6 – 8 hours without re-applying. Im not a much of red lipstick kind of girl, but this has been my favorite red of all time. I have been wearing this on my wedding day ceremony and photo shoots, they stayed all day long and looked beautiful. I also got many compliments on this red 🙂
Cons: Being matte , it tends to dry after few hours, you could apply some balm on top or i would like to go over with a transparent lip gloss on top. I find the color Chill, coming out in 2 tones on the lips (lighter on the inner and darker on the outer lips). Im not sure if this is just for me, that is a demerit only on that color.
My Review: Im loving them overall. I have never seen such pigmented and creamy formula so far. Really worth your money and for long use. I saw many more newer shades available now to try on.
