Tarte Pink Sands is a moderately warm-toned, very light coral with a cream finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $21.00 and contains 0.12 oz.
Tarte Pink Sands Color Splash Hydrating Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a pale coral with moderate, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation but was hard to build up due to the more emollient texture that slid around and tended to look streaky when more was applied. While comfortable to apply, the color had tendency to sink into my lip lines more and more as time went on. The formula felt lightweight and hydrating for the three hours it lasted for. I'm normally a fan of this formula but found this particular shade a bit of a miss, though often these lighter shades tend to under-perform so it wasn't a huge surprise.
