Tarina Tarantino Floriculture Conditioning Lip Sheen

Tarina Tarantino Floriculture Conditioning Lip Sheen ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “rich beet magenta.” It’s a rich raspberry red with subtle blue undertones and soft, glossy sheen. Revlon Raspberry Pie is a smidgen less red, not quite as bright. Guerlain Girly is redder. OCC Queen is brighter. Guerlain Champs-Elysees is rather close, just more opaque (so it looks a little darker).

This lipstick formula is supposed to be lightweight, hydrating, and have “medium pigmentation.” The color coverage is mostly opaque with a light translucency that allows for some of the natural lip color to come through. It has a light, balm-like consistency that slides on like butter, but it manages to stay on lips for a full five and a half hours. The formula is moderately hydrating (and more so than the last shade I tried in this range), so lips don’t feel parched post-application and you won’t feel compelled to run for your lip balm right away. It’s also scent- and taste-free. It comes in a gunmetal tube that clicks into place well and doesn’t show fingerprints for the most part.

Tarina Tarantino Floriculture Conditioning Lip Sheen Review, Photos, Swatches

A+
Tarina Tarantino's Conditioning Lip Sheen is such a comfortable, lightweight formula that looks as hydrating as it is. Floriculture is a fantastic shade for fall that's dark without being vampy.

  1. It’s hard to imagine such a glossy formula manages to stay on for 5 hours and a half! My Tarina Tarantino wish list is growing longer and longer. So sad we don’t get the brand here!

  2. Oh, this looks almost like a brighter version of Illamasqua Magnetism. I need to check this out. Thank you for the review, Christine! :)

    I wish I could get my hands on these bu, unfortunately, no Tarina Tarantino in Portugal :-(

  4. That truly sounds like a great product, too bad Tarina Tarantino isn’t available in The Netherlands.

    Wow, A+ I am impressed! And it looks so beautiful! I’ve tried the older version in a different packaging I dont know if they’re the same but I liked that one

  6. Dan

    Wawww !!! amazing color… my favorite : not totally red nor totally pink, a great mix …

  7. Avatar of Sasha Sasha

    That’s some good staying power for basically a tinted lip balm!

  8. This is really pretty shade, but it would just go pink on me in which case, I might as well be wearing pink. Ha!

  9. Avatar of Mirian Vermeulen Mirian

    YES. I’ve been on the edge of purchasing a few of these for a while now. pushed me off the fence!

  10. MiMi

    Ohhhhh this is the business! Its opaque, shiny and a gorgeous hue!

  11. Wow it’s bright compared to the bullet! I like it.

  12. Ada

    I need this like yesterday!

  13. Violet

    Nothin’ speshull.

  14. Lauren

    Love it! I might have to break my self-ban from Sephora to get this!

  15. blueraccoon

    This is gorgeous – I feel like it’s too bright for me, but I may have to check out other colors in this line!

  16. This is not my favorite type of shade, but now I want to try the formula!

  17. Jane

    How does this compare to Illamasqua Magnetism ?

  18. Tigress

    Perfection!

  19. I’m not crazy about this color for myself, but the finish looks wonderful! Nice and shiny without looking like an actual gloss. I will have to look into the other shades in this line!

  20. Melody

    Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!

    This is beautiful and I am loving TT more and more. Her eye pencils are IMO the best out there. They never budge on me and that’s saying something. Plus I love her blush palette a lot!! Now lipstick? I think she deserves more love than she gets. I wish there were more products to choose from.

  22. It’s nice to see another winner from Tarina Tarantino. It’s a pretty color!

  23. blanca

    This is gorgeous i die of love for this!!
    anyone know how i can get this in switzerland… I NEED IT!!!!

  24. Jane

    Hi Christine. Thanks for the nice review and photos.

    This is kinda color I am looking for but wanted to know how does this compare to Illamaqua Magnetism ?

  25. Melissa

    Is it true that Tarina Tarantino is being discontinued from Sephora? Everything is on sale @ Sephora.com, and an SA at my local Sephora today said the brand hadn’t been selling well within Sephoras. :( Sad to see a good brand go but maybe it’s time to stock up! :D

    illamasqua magnetism looks like a more opaque dupe!

    I came here wondering how similar it is to mac rebel, because on me it looks so similar to mac rebel on you (which I’ve wanted for a long time). I was gifted this lipstick and was wondering if buying rebel was worth it since I own this. It’s funny how different the same color can look on two different people. I bet rebel would look near-black on me since this looks so similar to rebel.
