Tarte Tarteist Vibin’ Quick Dry Matte Lip Paints ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a deep red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. I was surprised that it wasn’t more pigmented–only semi-opaque–given that it was a darker red. The consistency was lightweight, smooth, and thin without feeling watery. It applied evenly on the lips, but my natural lip color was still able to come through (if your lip color is darker or more vibrant naturally, this might look different, particularly in the undertone). It wore well for five and a half hours and was drying after three hours of wear.

The Quick Dry formula is supposed to have “full coverage” with a “transfer-proof” finish that won’t crack, dry your lips out, or feather. After trying several shades in the formula, there is a lot of inconsistency across shades. Some are nice, some are terrible; some absolutely “crack” and others have a soft matte finish that is transfer-proof without making lips look drier. The formula is, overall, lightly to moderately drying on me, though the wear is longer at five to seven hours and most shades had good pigmentation.

Isododecane, dimethicone, trimethylsiloxysilicate, quaternium-90 bentonite, polypropylsilsesquioxane, beeswax/cera alba/cire d’abeille, nylon-12, polyethylene, sucrose acetate isobutyrate, propylene carbonate, tocopherol, tocopheryl acetate, ascorbyl palmitate, polyglyceryl-6 polyricinoleate, VP/hexadecene copolymer, triethyl citrate, silica, silica silylate, polybutene, phenoxyethanol.

Tarte Bounce Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paints ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark rose with warm undertones and a matte finish. The color coverage was mostly opaque with even application. It had a lightweight, thin but not too thin texture, so it spread well but didn’t look streaky or sink into lip lines. After it dried down, I could still smile without my lips appearing “cracked,” and the color wore away evenly and did not flake over a six hour period. It was slightly drying, though.

The Quick Dry formula is supposed to have “full coverage” with a “transfer-proof” finish that won’t crack, dry your lips out, or feather. After trying several shades in the formula, there is a lot of inconsistency across shades. Some are nice, some are terrible; some absolutely “crack” and others have a soft matte finish that is transfer-proof without making lips look drier.

Tarte Sis Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paints ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark plummy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly full color coverage, but the downside this shade had was in its dry down–it was very clingy and emphasized every lip line. It “cracked” when I smiled and just felt dry on my lips. This shade started to flake away from the center of my mouth after four hours of wear and was tolerable for six hours. It was moderately drying.

The Quick Dry formula is supposed to have “full coverage” with a “transfer-proof” finish that won’t crack, dry your lips out, or feather.

Some are nice, some are terrible; some absolutely “crack” and others have a soft matte finish that is transfer-proof without making lips look drier.

Tarte Cheerleader Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paints ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a bold, bright medium-dark red with strong, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had medium color coverage that went on fairly evenly and dried down to a flat, matte finish. It did not “crack” on me and was only mildly clingy while worn. The color lasted for six hours, faded away somewhat evenly, and was drying over time.

Rainforest of the Sea Vol. 2

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Vol. 2 Eyeshadow Palette ($36.00 for 0.40 oz.) includes eight shades in a mostly neutral set of hues. The formula is different than the brand’s typical Amazonian Clay eyeshadow, and it is the same as the one used in the original Rainforest of the Sea palette. It is a denser, more cream-like formula that feels firmer in the pan but is fairly blendable on the lid. It applies better to bare skin, as it adheres better and has less powderiness/fallout compared to their standard formula. I didn’t find the ease of use of this palette to be as good as the original, but it was fairly easy to use and apply with most shades having good pigmentation and wear. Just as a note, the formula has a tendency to apply lighter than they look in the pan.
