Tarte Skinny Dip Drench Lip Splash Lipstick

Tarte Skinny Dip Drench Lip Splash Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.085 oz.) is a muted, light-medium peach with warm undertones and a satin finish. It was very creamy, though it felt thicker than most of the other shades in the range, and it didn’t apply as evenly–it just gathered in lip lines and seemed to separate more noticeably along my upper lip. It was pretty pigmented, and it was drying, but this was one of the shorter-wearing shades at four hours, which is more of an average wear-time than long-wear.

Tarte Firework Drench Lip Splash Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.085 oz.) is a medium-dark red with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish.

Tarte Happy Drench Lip Splash Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.085 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark dusty rose with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a creamy, velvety texture that was comfortable to wear and easy to apply. The lipstick wore well for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

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.
