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.

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.

Shy

Makeup Geek Shy Iconic Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy mauve with a lightly glossy, cream finish. The consistency was smooth, moderately emollient, and creamy without feeling heavy (but it had a thicker, denser texture). It covered the lips with full, even coverage that lasted for just over four hours on me. The formula was noticeably moisturizing while I wore it.

Quirky

Makeup Geek Quirky Iconic Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, medium orange with warm, yellow undertones and a satin finish. The texture was smooth, velvety and applied without tugging, but it did not adhere evenly to my lips and seemed to emphasize the texture noticeably. The coverage was nearly opaque, though, and it was comfortable to wear. It lasted for five hours but had noticeable color in my lip lines two and a half hours into the wear.

Sis

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.

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.

Vain

Makeup Geek Vain Iconic Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a deep berry with subtle,c ool undertones and a mostly matte finish. The texture was rather stiff, so this shade dragged and tugged as I applied it, but it was forgiving enough on the lips that it managed to distribute color fairly evenly despite the struggle to get it on in the first place. It lasted well for over six hours, left a strong fuchsia stain behind, but felt extremely drying after three hours of wear.

Tarte Cheerleader Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paints ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a bold, bright medium-dark red with strong, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had medium color coverage that went on fairly evenly and dried down to a flat, matte finish. It did not “crack” on me and was only mildly clingy while worn. The color lasted for six hours, faded away somewhat evenly, and was drying over time.
