Tarte Texas Toast & Swamp Family Tarteist Lip Paints

Tarte Texas Toast Tarteist Lip Paint ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium rosy mauve with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had a light-medium consistency that was slightly mousse-like, not as thin as some of the Lip Paints have been. It had a smooth feel on the lips, but it slides around noticeably. The color lasted for four and a half hours on me with some color fading more strongly from the center of the mouth, and the formula was somewhat drying overall. Maybelline Gone Greige (P, $7.49) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Oblivion (P, $17.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). Too Faced Cool Girl (P, $21.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Bianca (P, $6.00) is lighter, less glossy (80% similar). Colour Pop Stingraye (P, $6.00) is darker, warmer, less glossy (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Round-up: Tarte Metallics Shadows

Tarte Metallics Shadows
Tarte Metallics Shadows

Tarte Metallics Shadow ($14.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, limited edition formula (boo!hiss!) that is available in 11 shades. Each eyeshadow comes in an oversized plastic compact with a clear lid, but the eyeshadow pan is actually removable; the only downside is that the pan itself isn’t labeled, so if you move yours into a freestyle palette system, I would make sure to add labels to the bottoms!

The formula is soft, smooth, slightly dense, and very pigmented; a little went a long way, but it wasn’t so soft that it turned powdery or had a lot of fall out to contend with, though there was a little excess kicked up in the pan. They were very blendable and easy to apply to bare skin, and I didn’t notice a difference in payoff or texture when applied over primer or over bare skin. The formula wore between seven and eight hours for me (no primer). I was pleasantly surprised by the consistency and pigmentation of the new formula; I’m disappointed it’s limited edition, and it would been even better if there were more unique shades released as well. I am also a huge fan of them being easy to pop out!

Tarte Grunge, Rave, Naughty Tarteist Lip Paints

Tarte Grunge Tarteist Lip Paint ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a deep, muted red-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a natural finish. It had opaque color payoff with a thinner consistency that wasn’t too watery or too dense, so it spread easily across the lips but applied evenly. On me, this shade wore well for six hours but was drying over time. Too Faced Naughty by Nature (P, $21.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Antique Velvet (P, $17.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Deep Love (LE, $17.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tarte Hussy, Whiskey, Scandal, Speakeasy Metallics Shadows

Tarte Hussy Metallics Shadow ($14.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, light-medium yellow gold with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. The texture was very soft but somewhat looser in the pan, so it kicked up some excess powder in the pan and didn’t apply as evenly or as richly as other shades. It wasn’t hard to use, but it is a shade that benefited from applying in sheerer layers or over primer. The color lasted for eight hours on me. MAC Goldmine (P, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). LORAC Unlimited (P, $19.00) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). Disney by Sephora Triton (LE) is darker (95% similar). Guerlain Petrouchka #2 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). bareMinerals Surreal (P) is darker (95% similar). Make Up For Ever ME406 Golden (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker, brighter (90% similar). Lancome Eternal Gold (P, $24.50) is lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Honey Pot (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Divergent Golden Honesty (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar). Milani Bella Sand (02) (P, $4.49) is darker (90% similar). Ardency Inn Sunday (P, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Gilded Night #2 (LE, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Baked Cowboy (P, $19.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar).

Tarte Exposed Amazonian Clay Highlighter

Tarte Exposed Amazonian Clay Blush ($26.00 for 0.20 oz.) is muted, medium rosy mauve with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. This shade has been part of the permanent range for awhile, but it is being repromoted alongside the three new shades, and I thought it was a good excuse to update photos/swatches of it as well as pull new dupes. The Amazonian Clay Blush formula is supposed to have 12-hour wear along with a “supremely soft” texture. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage (up to semi-opaque) with a dusty, lightly powdery consistency that does kick up a noticeable amount of powder in the pan, but it didn’t appear dry or chalky on the skin. The color wore well for eight hours, which is in line with most formulas for me, but it is below the length claimed. KIKO 105 Dark Rose (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Plum Ombre (LE, $55.00) is warmer (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Capri (P, $58.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Tarte Seduce (P, $28.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Rose Bronze (P, $45.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Makeup Geek Puppy Love (P, $10.00) is darker (90% similar). Estee Lauder Alluring Rose (P, $34.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). bareMinerals The Love Letter (LE, $22.00) is cooler (85% similar). Tarte Elevated (LE, $28.00) is lighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Piaf (Shade) (P) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Tarte Prim (LE, $28.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Fetish (P, $26.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Tarte Unearthed (LE, $28.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Tarte Risque (P, $28.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Tarte Impress (LE, $28.00) is cooler (85% similar). Surratt Beauty La Vie En Rose (P, $32.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). LORAC Cinematic (P, $22.00) is warmer (85% similar). Laura Geller Roseberry (P, $28.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). KIKO 102 Natural Pink (P, $12.00) is warmer (80% similar). bareMinerals The Close Call (P, $22.00) is warmer (80% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest.
