Tarte Beach Bum Drench Lip Splash Lipstick

Tarte Beach Bum Drench Lip Splash Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.085 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy brown with soft, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage with a smooth, velvety consistency that glided on and sat well on the lips. There was enough slip in this that it didn’t last particularly long–four and a half hours–but was comfortable to wear and didn’t dry my lips out.

Tarte Cabana Boy Drench Lip Splash Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.085 oz.) is a muted, medium rose pink with neutral-to-cool undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a smooth, velvety feel that applied easily and didn’t drag/tug on the lips. It had a slightly thicker texture, and I noticed issues with the color getting into lip lines after three hours of wear, while it lasted for about four and a half hours all told. On me, it was neither drying nor hydrating. Bite Beauty Sake (P, $26.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay Backtalk (P, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Tarte Bonfire Drench Lip Splash Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.085 oz.) is a deep, muted purple-plum with subtle, cool undertones and a satin sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff, but the natural lip color definitely comes through with this shade. The consistency was more emollient with less density compared to other shades. I had some issues with the color pulling into lip lines over time, though no feathering, while the color lasted for four and a half hours with a light stain. It was slightly hydrating overall. MAC High Drama (P, $20.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Instigator (P, $17.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Motorhead (P, $21.00) is warmer (85% similar).

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Tarte Drench Lip Splash Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.085 oz.) is supposed to have “full coverage” with a “matte” finish and still manage to hydrate the lips while being “long-wearing.” The range is very pigmented with a more semi-matte to satin finish than truly matte. The wear varied from four to six hours, but the more velvety, silicone-like consistency made it so some shades settled into lip lines, though the more forgiving texture makes it easier to smooth the color back in place during wear. The formula is comfortable to wear overall with a faint mint scent but no taste. If you twist-up the entire lipstick from the tube, it appears rather stubby, but it is actually still 0.085 oz. by weight–the average lipstick is between 0.10 oz. and 0.12 oz. with the occasional lipstick as large as 0.15 oz. (Tarte’s regular lipstick contains $17.00/0.10 oz., and their twist-up LipSurgence range is $24.00/0.10 oz.). Worth noting, the tube itself felt thin and less sturdy than most lipstick tubes I’ve come across.
