Round-up: Tarte Color Splash Hydrating Lipstick

Tarte Color Splash Hydrating Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to be a “long-wearing and moisture-rich, full-coverage lipstick” that is available in 24 shades. The range is exclusive to Sephora/Tarte at this time. The consistency of the formula has an incredibly smooth, creamy feel to it and has enough substance and thickness to it that it adheres well to the lips and usually doesn’t pull into lip lines. I felt like the formula felt slightly more emollient initially and “dried” a bit to more of a satin-to-cream finish after a few minutes (but not a true dry down, as it wasn’t transfer-resistant!). The majority of shades were very pigmented, easy to apply, comfortable to wear with light to moderate hydration over time, and lasted between four and seven hours on me.

A few of the lightest and darkest shades weren’t as pigmented or were less flattering on the lips compared to more of the medium shades. There did not seem to be any added fragrance to it (smelled slightly waxy), and I didn’t notice any taste.

Tarte Cruisin’ Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with just a touch more product layered on top. The lipstick was creamy, lightweight but not too thin, and comfortable to wear. This shade wore well for over six hours and was moisturizing over time.

Tarte Daiquiri Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a vibrant, medium-dark coral-red with warm undertones and a satin finish. The color payoff was fantastic–completely opaque in one layer–and applied evenly without any streaking or settling. It felt creamy going on the lips but adhered well (but didn’t feel clingy) and made my lips appear a little smoother than they were naturally. This shade wore well for almost six hours and was hydrating over time.

Tarte Beach Waves Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, dark plummy brown with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. The consistency was smooth, creamy without being too slippery, and seemed to be thinner than other shades in the range, as it emphasized my lip texture a little bit. It was richly pigmented, and the color applied evenly and never tugged on the lips. This shade wore well for five and a half hours and was slightly hydrating.

Berry Mojito

Tarte Berry Mojito Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a rich, reddish burgundy with subtle, cool undertones and barely-there pearl. The finish was glossier compared to most shades in the range, and I expect that was due to the higher amount of slip. While I didn’t personally experience feathering with the shade, this would be one that I’d recommend wearing with a lip liner if feathering is an issue for you. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which applied fairly evenly and smoothly across the lips. This shade wore well for six hours and left a stain behind while also being hydrating.

Colada

Tarte Colada Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is muted, medium peachy brown with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had good pigmentation, though it was shy of being full coverage, that went on evenly and smoothly. The lipstick was slightly more emollient than others in the range, and I had a touch of color that pulled into my lip lines as a result, though I did not feel it was noticeable from a normal viewing distance (only in the close-up photos). This shade wore nicely for five and a half hours and was hydrating while worn.
