Tarte Namaste Tarteist Lip Paint ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a light, peachy beige with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The texture was drier, more mousse-like and less liquid-y compared to other shades, but it had a drier, more powdery feel and look applied as a result. The texture was also “crumbly” with little chunks of product (again, as if it wasn’t mixed thoroughly). Despite it not having a full dry down, it “cracked” and pulled color deeply into my lip lines and emphasized the natural texture of my lips. The color lasted for three hours and was drying.
