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.
