Tarte Hangry, Manbun, Frenemy Tarteist Lip Paints

Tarte Hangry Tarteist Lip Paint ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a s lightly muted, dark plum with subtle, warmer undertones and a natural shine. It had semi-opaque color payoff and crumbly bits of darker color strewn through the consistency–almost like unmixed pigment, even though it was a runnier consistency overall. This one really settled really noticeably into lip lines after an hour or two of wear. It also had shorter wear at four hours overall, despite the darker hue. It was slightly drying overall.

Bite Beauty Palomino/Pomegranate Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo

Bite Beauty Palomino/Pomegranate Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a duo of fuchsia and neutral red. The Mix ‘n’ Mingle duos are a good way to try the Bite formula without having to spend a lot–you get two-thirds of a full-sized shade for $14 (instead of $24). I’m a big fan of the Luminous Creme formula, which is supposed to be richly pigmented, hydrating, and long-wearing; and it usually lives up to those claims. Both of these shades are nice, and they are also both part of the permanent range should you love only one or want to pick-up a full-size.

Tarte Cray Cray, Selfish, So Fetch Tarteist Lip Paints

Tarte Cray Cray Tarteist Lip Paint ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a bold, bright, medium-dark orange with strong red undertones and a matte finish. The texture of this one was thicker and more mousse-like, and as a result, it had a much drier/more matte finish compared to other shades in the range. The formula was also more drying while worn, though it had less transfer and didn’t streak or settle into lip lines. The color wore for five and a half hours on me. MAC Scarlet Ibis (LE, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). Estee Lauder Volatile (P, $30.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Lady Danger (P, $17.00) is darker (95% similar).

Tarte Adorbs, Twerk, Yassss Tarteist Lip Paints

Tarte Adorbs Tarteist Lip Paint ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a neon, medium, fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. It had rich, opaque color coverage, and it is so bright that it really might require a pair of sunglasses! 😉 The texture was a little thicker, more mousse-like, though not as dry as the thicker/most mousse-like shades in the range. It doesn’t have as much of a shine as some shades, but it’s not totally matte. The color lasted for six hours, but it does settle into lip lines. The thicker consistency does allow you to rub your lips together to smooth out the color again, though. It was slightly drying. Kat Von D Backstage Bambi (P, $20.00) is lighter, brighter, less glossy (90% similar). Maybelline Faint for Fuchsia (P, $7.99) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Personal Statement (P, $20.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). Too Faced Melted Fuchsia (P, $21.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Electric Pink (15) (P, $50.00) is more muted, cooler (90% similar). Bite Beauty Pink Lady (P, $24.00) is darker, warmer, glossier (85% similar). MAC Pink Pigeon (P, $17.00) is cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Menace (P, $22.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Bite Beauty Confection / Marmalade Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo

Bite Beauty Confection/Marmalade Luminous Creme Lipstick Duo ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) consists of a bright, pop of fuchsia pink paired with a warmer, medium orange. It’s another good set of shades that performs well and lives up to its claims! Bite’s Luminous Creme formula is very consistent for me, so I’m happy to see it is equally consistent in their mini duos.
