Tarte Pink Sands is a very warm-toned, medium pink with a metallic finish. It is a limited edition lipgloss that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.135 oz.
Tarte Pink Sands H20 Lip Gloss ($19.00 for 0.135 oz.) is a medium-dark, pink-tinted base with lots of bright, gold shimmer. It had medium coverage that applied evenly, though it sank into my deeper lip lines slightly--not enough that it was noticeable from a normal viewing distance. Based on the description of it being a lovechild between "your favorite lipgloss and lip balm," it suggests it was intended to be sheerer. It did have the "intense, ultra-lacquered shine" as promised. The texture was smooth, plush, and lightly tacky; it felt thicker but not actually heavy on my lips. It wore well for four hours and was hydrating while worn. There was a slight vanilla scent but no discernible taste.
This lip gloss pampers lips while lacquering them with nourishing pigment and a glassy shine that makes them look more luscious. Antioxidant-rich marine plant extracts help smooth the appearance of lip lines for a fuller appearance.
