Tarte Spellbound Glow Rainbow Highlighter ($30.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a light, golden pink with warmer undertones and a metallic sheen. If you keep more toward the left side, it will appear warmer and less pink, and if you keep more toward the right side, it will appear cooler and less golden.

It’s a new, limited edition highlighter that’s supposed to impart an “ethereal, rainbow highlight” and can be used swirled together or more concentrated on a particular shade. Each strip is fairly narrow (think better suited for an eye brush), so swirled is the most practical way, and of course, you could lean a little warmer or a little cooler. It’s supposed to be long-wearing and pigmented. The consistency was rather dense but was smooth and blendable on the skin. The pigmentation was great, and it had a strong sheen, so despite the dense texture, a typical highlighting brush worked fine for moderate, buildable coverage. When I applied this at higher coverage, it did emphasize my skin’s natural texture a bit. It wore well for eight hours on me.

Sneak Peek: Tarte Metallics Shadows (Summer 2017) Photos & Swatches

TARTE
Metallics Shadows

View the List

Eleven new shades were added to the Tarte Metallics Shadows ($14.00 for 0.07 oz.) range last week. I bought them through Tarte, but unfortunately, 8 of the 11 arrived broken, so apologies for the messier photos! (Tarte said they would refund me, and I’ll be repurchasing them but want to go through Ulta/Sephora, in case it happens again, so I can just deal with it in-store. There was no damage to the package, and it was packed fine, so I’m not sure what led to the damage.) Nevertheless, here are photos and swatches:

Vibin'

Tarte Tarteist Vibin’ Quick Dry Matte Lip Paints ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a deep red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. I was surprised that it wasn’t more pigmented–only semi-opaque–given that it was a darker red. The consistency was lightweight, smooth, and thin without feeling watery. It applied evenly on the lips, but my natural lip color was still able to come through (if your lip color is darker or more vibrant naturally, this might look different, particularly in the undertone). It wore well for five and a half hours and was drying after three hours of wear.

The Quick Dry formula is supposed to have “full coverage” with a “transfer-proof” finish that won’t crack, dry your lips out, or feather. After trying several shades in the formula, there is a lot of inconsistency across shades. Some are nice, some are terrible; some absolutely “crack” and others have a soft matte finish that is transfer-proof without making lips look drier. The formula is, overall, lightly to moderately drying on me, though the wear is longer at five to seven hours and most shades had good pigmentation.

Bounce

Tarte Bounce Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paints ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark rose with warm undertones and a matte finish. The color coverage was mostly opaque with even application. It had a lightweight, thin but not too thin texture, so it spread well but didn’t look streaky or sink into lip lines. After it dried down, I could still smile without my lips appearing “cracked,” and the color wore away evenly and did not flake over a six hour period. It was slightly drying, though.

Tarte Sis Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paints ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark plummy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly full color coverage, but the downside this shade had was in its dry down–it was very clingy and emphasized every lip line. It “cracked” when I smiled and just felt dry on my lips. This shade started to flake away from the center of my mouth after four hours of wear and was tolerable for six hours. It was moderately drying.
