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).

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). Makeup Geek Puppy Love (P, $10.00) is 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). 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 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). Tarte Risque (P, $28.00) is darker, warmer (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.

Tarte Brownie, Choker, Crop Top Tarteist Lip Paints

Tarte Brownie Tarteist Lip Paint ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a natural sheen. It had opaque color coverage with a thin, spreadable consistency that wasn’t too watery or too mousse-like. The texture sat well on the lips initially, but over time, it does seem to emphasize lip lines. This shade lasted for five hours on me and was lightly drying. Keep in mind, this is not a typical liquid lipstick that dries down to an ultra-matte, transfer-proof finish–it does transfer, but it is pigmented enough that it doesn’t seem to lose intensity after drinking or light meals (no fried chicken!). Colour Pop Hollywood Blvd. (P, $5.00) is less glossy (90% similar). Bite Beauty Cocoa (P, $24.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Colour Pop Tansy (P, $6.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Photo (P, $17.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Tarte Choker (P, $20.00) is lighter (85% similar).

Tarte Poker Face Metallics Shadow ($14.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark lavender mauve with subtle, warmer undertones and a metallic sheen. The pigmentation was opaque, while the powder had a soft, smooth feel to it that applied well to bare skin and was effortlessly to blend and diffuse.
