Tarte Hella, Obvi, Slay Tarteist Glossy Lip Paints

Tarte Hella Tarteist Glossy Lip Paint ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “white nude.” It’s a light, warm peach with a cream finish. This was one of the worst shades in the range, as it was uneven and tended to gather in lip lines, so it just didn’t look as smooth applied. It had good color payoff, lasted for three hours, and was hydrating. Too Faced Naked Dolly (LE) is darker, more muted, less pigmented (90% similar). MAC Innocent (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, less pigmented (90% similar). Maybelline Life's a Peach (P, $4.49) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Laura Mercier Bare Baby (P, $25.00) is more shimmery, lighter, less pigmented (85% similar). MAC Lap Dog (LE, $22.00) is darker, more muted, less pigmented (85% similar). Anastasia Dainty (P) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tarte Fave, Poison, WCW Tarteist Glossy Lip Paints

Tarte Tarteist Glossy Lip Paint ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is supposed to be “pigmented” with a “glossy” and “non-sticky” finish and have a hydrating formula to back it up. There are nine shades available, and it is a new, permanent formula. The consistency is light-medium in weight–more gel-like with a very smooth, lightly creamy texture. It’s more like a gloss than merely a liquid lipstick, so it has a glossier finish overall. Most of the shades were semi-opaque to fully opaque, and even the darker shades applied evenly for the most part (that was a surprise!). They’re comfortable to wear, lightly hydrating, and non-sticky over time. The wear varied between three to five hours for me. I didn’t notice any scent or taste when testing these.

Tarte Tarteist Blush Palette

Tarte Tarteist Blush Palette ($38.00 for 0.63 oz.) contains four shades of warm-toned blushes for spring/summer. It’s a limited edition palette housed in a slim, travel-friendly palette with a large interior mirror and the products are labeled on the palette itself. The formula used is the Amazonian Clay Blush one, which is supposed to have 12-hour wear and be “pigment-packed.” I like Tarte’s formula, but the one downside is that they rarely wear much beyond eight hours, so they tend to get hit badly by longevity ratings as a result. The pigmentation can sometimes be lacking, but all four shades in the palette had good color payoff.

Tarte Beach Bum, Cabana Boy, Bonfire Drench Lip Splash Lipstick

Tarte Beach Bum Drench Lip Splash Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.085 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy brown with soft, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage with a smooth, velvety consistency that glided on and sat well on the lips. There was enough slip in this that it didn’t last particularly long–four and a half hours–but was comfortable to wear and didn’t dry my lips out. Bite Beauty Verbena (P, $26.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Aim to Please (P, $20.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Bumble (P, $6.00) is less glossy (90% similar).

Tarte Skinny Dip, Firework, Happy Drench Lip Splash Lipstick

Tarte Skinny Dip Drench Lip Splash Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.085 oz.) is a muted, light-medium peach with warm undertones and a satin finish. It was very creamy, though it felt thicker than most of the other shades in the range, and it didn’t apply as evenly–it just gathered in lip lines and seemed to separate more noticeably along my upper lip. It was pretty pigmented, and it was drying, but this was one of the shorter-wearing shades at four hours, which is more of an average wear-time than long-wear. Givenchy Beige Mousseline (101) (P, $36.00) is warmer (95% similar). Bite Beauty Leche (P, $24.00) is darker, cooler (95% similar). Too Faced Sorry Not Sorry (P, $22.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Kinda Sexy (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Anastasia Pure Hollywood (P, $20.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). Make Up For Ever C104 (P, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). Burberry Pink Apricot (301) (P, $30.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Oxblood (LE, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Reel Sexy (LE, $17.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lament (P, $18.00) is lighter, warmer, glossier (90% similar). Colour Pop Button (P, $5.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Kat Von D Noble (P, $20.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). Maybelline Daringly Nude (P, $7.99) is lighter (85% similar). Chanel Sentiment (DC, $34.00) is darker (85% similar).
