Tarte Limitless Lippies Tarteist Creamy Lip Paint Set

Tarte Limitless Lippies Tarteist Creamy Lip Paint Set ($42.00 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is a set of eight miniature sized Lip Paints, which are like a liquid lipstick that doesn’t quite dry down and has more of a velvety finish–more like a satin than a matte. The formula is supposed to be “ultra-pigmented,” “non-drying,” and long-wearing. In my experience, this formula never fully dries down, but they are more comfortable to wear as they are not as drying as traditional liquid lipstick; they have a tendency to get more and more matte as the color wears down, but it is a rather pigmented product that it still lasted for four to seven hours on me. The formula has a mint scent but no taste to me.

I was really surprised–really, shocked–at the absence of value in this kit, because of all things Tarte does… is put out value-packed kits and palettes. If you’re someone who doesn’t care about the amount of product in a tube but prefers more variety in color, then there may still be value to you, as you’ll get eight shades for a little more than the cost of two full-sized products. I also found that the applicator of the minis to be rougher and less well-made, so they felt scratchy when used on the lips. As far as quality of the shades went, they were good overall, and I hope Tarte will add some of these to their existing range.

Candy is a medium-dark, peachy-brown with strong, warm orange undertones and a satin sheen. It opaque color coverage, but the thinner, more watery consistency gravitated toward my lip lines.

Honey is a muted, medium-dark rosy mauve with neutral-to-warm undertones and a natural sheen. The texture was thinner with a more watery feel going on, though it “dried” down to something that didn’t slide around as much after about thirty minutes of wear. It had excellent pigmentation, but the color did sink into lip lines, which became more noticeable after two hours of wear. The color lasted for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Colour Pop Stingraye (P, $6.00) is cooler (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Bobbi (P, $35.00) is cooler, lighter (90% similar). Smashbox On Set (P, $21.00) is lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Latte is a deep, caramelized brown with warm, red-orange undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. The consistency was thicker than the previous two and more consistent with the formula as a whole. The color spread well across the lips and didn’t appear streaky. I found the texture to still emphasize lip lines just a touch, though it wasn’t too noticeable from a normal viewing distance. It wore well for six hours and was a bit drying after four hours of wear. Maybelline Coffee Addiction (P, $7.49) is less glossy (95% similar). MAC Paramount (P, $17.00) is cooler, darker (90% similar). NARS Deborah (P, $32.00) is glossier, lighter (90% similar). MAC Photo (P, $17.00) is warmer, lighter (90% similar).

Mani is a medium, rosy plum with warmer undertones and a creamy finish. It had excellent color payoff that applied with smooth, even coverage without issue. The consistency was light-to-medium in weight, emollient initially but dried to a more velvety feel on the lips. There was some slip and slide of the color, which seemed to disappear after the third hour of wear. It lasted for five hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating.
Burberry Dark Rosewood (P, $34.00) is lighter (95% similar). Maybelline Touch of Spice (P, $7.99) is lighter (90% similar).

Perf is a medium-dark plum with neutral-to-cool undertones and a satin finish. The consistency was more watery and thinner, so while it applied evenly, it slid around on the lips a lot, so it was more of a high-maintenance product. It had semi-opaque color coverage that wore for five hours on me. It was somewhat drying. Makeup Geek Marriage Material (P, $12.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Private Party (LE, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar). Maybelline Mauve It (P, $7.49) is more muted (90% similar). Urban Decay TMI (P, $17.00) is glossier (90% similar).

Spicy is a muted, medium-dark reddish plum with warm undertones and a creamy finish. It was fully opaque, while the texture was light-to-medium in weight, not too thick or too thin, and spread evenly across the lips. This shade wore well for six hours and was a bit drying after four hours of wear. Chanel Rouge Vie (58) (P, $37.00) is darker (95% similar). NARS Flamenco (P, $26.00) is lighter (90% similar).

(P, $17.00) is cooler, more muted, darker (90% similar). Smashbox Fig (P, $21.00) is cooler (85% similar). NARS Provocative Red (LE, $25.00) is less glossy, lighter (85% similar). NARS Audrey (P, $32.00) is glossier, brighter, lighter (85% similar). Laura Mercier Iced Pomegranate (P, $25.00) is glossier, brighter, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Juicy is a bright, medium red with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that went on evenly and smoothly, and it did not appear to show “lines” if I pressed my lips together. This shade was thicker, more mousse-like in the tube, but it spread well and didn’t look or feel heavy on the lips. On me, it lasted for over six hours and left a stain behind, but it was somewhat drying. Marc Jacobs Beauty Oh Miley (200) (P, $30.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Ronnie Red (LE, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Swamp Family (LE, $20.00) is cooler (95% similar). Tarte Bae (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Soul is a deep, reddish burgundy with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff, but it applied terribly–streaky, patchy, and gritty color settled into lip lines as the texture was thicker, mousse-like, but it also seemed to have unmixed powder in it. The color lasted for four and a half hours and was drying over time. Tom Ford Beauty Nicholas (P, $35.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Cordovan (P, $21.00) is glossier, lighter (95% similar). MAC Talk That Talk (LE, $17.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Eugenie (LE, $17.00) is cooler, darker (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Black Dahlia (10) (LE, $50.00) is darker (95% similar).

Tarte Sculpted Cheeks Amazonian Clay Blush Set & Brush

Tarte Sculpted Cheeks Deluxe Amazonian Clay Blush Set & Brush
Tarte Sculpted Cheeks Deluxe Amazonian Clay Blush Set & Brush

Tarte Sculpted Cheeks Deluxe Amazonian Clay Blush Set & Brush ($35.00 for 0.20 oz.) includes four, deluxe-sized blushes and a synthetic, blush brush.

The Amazonian Clay Blush formula is supposed to have 12-hour wear along with a “supremely soft” texture. There’s a lot to like about Tarte’s formula, as it is softer (sometimes dusty), blendable, and fairly smooth with good pigmentation, but for me, I rarely get 12-hour wear–I do get between 8 and 10-hour wear, though. Unfortunately, I didn’t feel that the blushes in the set were representative of the quality of the regular formula. The blushes are disappointing; two of the four were so stiff that I had to scrape off layers of product to get enough product to transfer and show on the skin as a swatch.

Value

  • Full-size cost: $28.00 for 0.20 oz., $140.00/oz.
  • Set cost: $35.00 for 0.20 oz., $175.00/oz., plus full-sized brush
  • Value: $28.00 worth of blush, $20-30 value for brush, $48 to $58 total value

Genius is a muted, medium rosy mauve with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was incredibly powdery and dry to the touch, which resulted in a color that sheered out too easily on the skin and did not want to stick to the skin evenly. It seemed to brighten on my cheeks, almost like when a matte powder darkens on the skin due to the natural oils. It lasted for seven hours on me (which is a far cry from 12).
Tarte Irreplaceable (LE, $28.00) is brighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Cruel Intentions (LE, $8.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Tarte Fetching (LE, $28.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Royal is a muted, rosy brown with subtle, warm undertones and a satiny sheen. It had such a stiff texture that made it difficult to use at all; I could not get product to transfer on my brush, and I could barely get any color to transfer after jabbing a finger in the pan–I had to scrape off layers of product to loosen it from the pan, which is what I used for swatches (both on my arm and on my face). Without scraping and mangling the powder, it had next to nothing for color payoff and not enough product to blend or diffuse across my cheeks. It lasted for eight hours on me. Makeup Geek Puppy Love (P, $10.00) is more muted, darker (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Plum Ombre (LE, $55.00) is warmer, lighter (90% similar). Laura Geller Roseberry (P, $28.00) is cooler, more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Ven Conmigo (LE, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tarte Unearthed (LE, $28.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Corol #2 (LE, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). Surratt Beauty La Vie En Rose (P, $32.00) is warmer, brighter (90% similar). MAC Animal Instincts (LE, $22.00) is darker (85% similar). bareMinerals The Guest List (LE, $22.00) is warmer (85% similar). KIKO 105 Dark Rose (P, $12.00) is cooler, darker, more shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Vibrant is a bright pop of orange-coral with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The consistency was soft, just a bit dusty, but blendable and sat well on the skin. It had more of a natural matte finish when blended on the skin, so it didn’t look dry or flat applied. It had good pigmentation as well. On me, the color wore well for just over eight hours. KIKO 108 Orange Coral (P, $12.00) is more muted, darker, more shimmery (95% similar). bareMinerals Swoon (LE, $19.00) is warmer, lighter (90% similar). Tarte Mod (LE, $28.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Sideshow You (LE, $22.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Oh You Pretty Things (LE, $22.00) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Milani Coral Cove (05) (P, $8.99) is darker (90% similar). MAC Lured to Love (LE, $27.00) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Coco Code (LE, $70.00) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Passion for Colour (LE, $22.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty The Afternooner (Blush) (LE) is more muted, darker (90% similar). Too Faced Peach Cobbler (LE) is cooler, lighter (85% similar). Colour Pop Tongue Tied (LE, $8.00) is warmer, brighter, darker (85% similar). LORAC Technicolor (P, $22.00) is cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Pop is a bright cotton candy pink with neutral-to-cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. This was the other shade that had an incredibly stiff, firm texture; I had to scrape away at the surface of the pan to dislodge enough powder to show swatches or to use it, but what powder was dislodged was softer and more finely-milled than Royal, so I did not have any issues with applying or blending out the color once I was able to pick up product with my brush. It lasted for eight and a half hours on my cheeks. Tarte Surreal (LE, $28.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Temper (LE) is lighter (90% similar). theBalm Argyle (P, $22.00) is cooler, brighter (90% similar). Tarte Flush (P, $28.00) is more muted, lighter (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Exhibitionist (LE) is warmer (90% similar). Tarte Whimsy (LE, $28.00) is lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Santa Baby (LE) is warmer, lighter (85% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Shadore (P, $37.00) is more muted, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Sculpted Cheeks Brush is a larger cheek brush that flares from the ferrule to a rounded edge. It looked more like a highlighting brush than the average blush brush, but it definitely works for applying cheek color. It had a lot of spring, and I would say floppier than desired for precise cheek color application. I liked it more for blending or using with something very sheer than applying a pigmented blush, as it seemed to apply in a very large area. The brush itself was fairly soft and wasn’t prickly or scratchy when I tried to use. I didn’t experience any shedding or issues after washing it a few times, but my experience with is limited. The brush head was 24.28mm in width, 48.15mm in length, and 24.28mm in thickness. It had a total length of 6.50 inches / 16.5 centimeters.

[Please note: it is not possible to average the Sculpted Cheeks Brush scores with the blush scores as the things they are measuring are different, so I have only taken the Product rating for the brush to average a Product rating for the set.]

Tarte Color Wheel Amazonian Clay Blush Palette

Tarte Color Wheel Amazonian Clay Blush Palette
Tarte Color Wheel Amazonian Clay Blush Palette

Tarte Coor Wheel Amazonian Clay Blush Palette ($44.00 for 0.84 oz.) includes 10 blushes housed in a circular compact that opens and reveals five blushes on each side (there is no mirror as a result). Each pan is a decent size at 0.084 oz. a pop with a wide enough diameter that most blush brushes fit easily in them. The pans did not appear removable (I tried three pans with tweezers, and I didn’t feel any give). It would be a travel-friendly way to take so many blushes with you without taking up a lot of space.

The Amazonian Clay Blush formula is supposed to have 12-hour wear along with a “supremely soft” texture. There’s a lot to like about Tarte’s formula, as it is softer (sometimes dusty), blendable, and fairly smooth with good pigmentation, but for me, I rarely get 12-hour wear–I do get between 8 and 10-hour wear, though. Overall, the quality was consistent with the full-sized Tarte blushes I’ve tried with only one shade having a firmer, stiffer texture. I think they could have varied the colors used in the palette a bit more, but at least there is some variety in undertones and finishes. If you have a few blush palettes from Tarte, you may find that there is a lot of overlap, even if shades are not exact dupes, as the brand is prone to repeating itself each holiday! I think this a wish list worthy option for someone who is a big fan of Tarte’s formula or needs to have an instant blush stash.

Value

  • Full-size cost: $28.00 for 0.20 oz., $140.00/oz.
  • Palette cost: $44.00 for 0.84 oz., $52.38/oz.
  • Value: $117.60 worth of blush / $4.40 per shade

Crafty is a light peach with warm undertones and gold shimmer. This will work more as a highlighter than a blush for most skin tones, though it has a whiter base, so deeper skin tones may want to layer it over another cheek color. The texture was soft, blendable, and did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture when applied. It wore well for eight and a half hours. Cle de Peau Delicate Pink (14) (P, $55.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Tutu (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Looxi Beauty Goddess (P, $7.50) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). Makeup Revolution Radiant Lights (P, $6.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Laura Geller Peach Glow (P, $24.00) is cooler (90% similar). Viseart Highlight #1 (P) is less shimmery (90% similar). Laura Mercier Highlight 01 (P, $40.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Concept is a muted, medium-dark rosy coral with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had good pigmentation paired with a soft, blendable texture that was a bit thin and dusty, so it sheered out noticeably when applied to the cheeks. Luckily, it could be built up to greater intensity. This shade wore for nine hours before starting to fade on me. MAC I'll Hold My Breath #2 (LE) is cooler (95% similar). NARS Illusive (LE, $30.00) is cooler, lighter (90% similar). Guerlain Petrouchka #7 (LE) is more muted, darker (90% similar). bareMinerals Swoon (LE, $19.00) is warmer, brighter, lighter (90% similar).

KIKO 108 Orange Coral (P, $12.00) is brighter, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Between the Sheets (P, $8.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty The Afternooner (Blush) (LE) is darker (85% similar). The Estee Edit Coy Coral (02) (P, $28.00) is warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Icon is a muted, medium rosy pink with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had the type of finish that seemed matte initially, but it had a more natural matte finish when blended and buffed on the skin–it didn’t look dry or flat. This shade had a soft, lightly dusty texture that was very blendable and easy to use, and it did not sheer out unduly like Concept did, so the dustiness wasn’t noticeable when I used it on the cheeks. I was able to wear this one for nine hours before it started to show signs of wear. Chanel Crescendo (250) (LE, $45.00) is brighter (95% similar). MAC Formal (LE) is lighter (95% similar).

Montage is a deep raspberry pink with neutral-to-cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. The pigmentation was good, while the consistency was smooth but too firm in the pan, so it was harder to blend out on the skin. It had more of a natural finish as it was blended on the skin.

Ironic is a medium-dark, pinky plum with neutral-to-warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. This blush had excellent color payoff, while the texture was soft, just a smidgen powdery, and blended easily on the skin. I noticed the finish looked less matte and flat as I blended the product on my cheeks. The wear came in closer to nine hours on this particular color.

Idol is a light-medium, yellowed gold with warm, orange undertones and a frosted sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, lightly dusty texture–this one was prone to sheering out, but I imagine that for most this will be used as a highlighter and that sheerness will be more appreciated than not. The sheen is subtle on my skin, and the color didn’t seem to translate as noticeably as I had anticipated, but as always, this will likely have more color impact on fairer complexions. It wore well for eight hours on me. Laura Mercier Addiction (P, $44.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Illamasqua Rush (P) is more shimmery (90% similar).

Culture is a bright pop of peony pink with warmer undertones (though not strongly warm) paired with warmer, golden shimmer. It had good color coverage with a powdery texture, though it was soft, finely-milled, and remained blendable on the skin. There seemed to be pigmentation to spare, as it did not sheer out noticeably in practice. This shade lasted for almost nine hours on me. Benefit Bella Bamba (DC, $28.00)(95% similar).

Surreal is a bright, medium pink with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It was nicely pigmented, and I felt like a little went a long way, possibly due to the general brightness of it as well as the richness in pigment. The texture was soft, finely-milled, and a bit on the dusty side, but it did not appear dry or chalky applied to my skin. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading on me.

Tarte Color Vibes Eyeshadow Palette

Tarte Color Vibes Eyeshadow Palette
Tarte Color Vibes Eyeshadow Palette

Tarte Color Vibes Eyeshadow Palette ($46.00 for 1.32 oz.) includes 20 eyeshadows arranged into four combinations. I like how they separated the colors, as it gives you a good idea of how to start pairing colors together, but if you want to go rogue, there’s nothing stopping you either! It’s a mixed bag; some shades are nice, some shades are difficult to work with, and the rest are somewhere in the middle. I like that there’s a mix of warmer and cool(er) shades, and there is a nice mix of finishes and depths, so you can get a variety of looks out of the palette. I also liked that this was a much slimmer palette compared to Tarte’s other holiday offerings, which are housed in bulky containers, so this would work better for traveling and take up less room when stored. I wish, though, that the quality was more consistent. The formula felt a little less smooth and silky compared to the brand’s permanent palettes (like Tartelette) but was also less dusty/powdery, though I had similar issues with the colors fading faster than average.

Love Hue is a soft, light-medium brown with warm, orange undertones and a mostly matte finish, though there is a dusting of silvery sparkle, but it doesn’t bind with the base, so it has little impact on the finish. The texture was firmer, so it was hard to get pigment out of the pan, which resulted in medium coverage at best. It wore well for six hours before fading.

On the Monet is a medium-dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a soft, pearly sheen. The pigmentation was good, but the texture was thin and drier to the touch–it was surprisingly thin for a richer, warmer, and more bronzy shade. I found it prone to fading, as it only lasted for six hours, and sheering out on the lid. Coloured Raine Intergalactic (P, $6.99) is lighter (95% similar).

Inked is a deep navy blue with a hint of purple paired with a matte finish. The texture was very dusty–almost chalky–and very prone to adhering better in some places and less so in others, which resulted in an uneven application that couldn’t be corrected by trying to blend it out (it just wouldn’t move).
