Tarte Emblaze is a slightly warm-toned, medium-dark plum with a matte finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $24.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
Emblaze is described as a "cool crimson." It's a medium-dark, berry-red with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered evenly, but it was nowhere near "full coverage" as described. The texture is thin and a little clingy, though it glides on without tugging. The color lasted for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. NARS Clash (LE, $27.00) is darker (85% similar). ColourPop Scrooge (LE, $6.50) is cooler (90% similar).

Just like the original and bestselling Natural Lip Stains, LipSurgence™ Natural Matte Lip Stains are peppermint-infused and glide on smooth for a rich matte finish that will stay all day. Each of the matte shades boasts the high-pigment concentration we love from matte lipsticks, but unlike drying lipsticks, these stains are infused with a High-Performance Natural™ LipSurgence™ technology, which is clinically proven to increase moisture content by an astonishing 6000% after 28 days. Earth engineered from a proprietary blend of plant bio-nutrients, the LipSurgence™ technology quickly absorbs into the skin to deliver a surge of moisture on a cellular level, while boosting peptides to stimulate skin's own regenerative system and assist in the formation of collagen. This proprietary blend effectively increases skin's water content for a plumped up appearance. The result is naturally fuller, healthier lips without any irritation or stinging.
