Tarte Rose is a very warm-toned, medium-dark coral with a glossy finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
Tarte Rose Quench Lip Rescue ($19.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium peachy-coral with warm undertones. This was the most pigmented of the four with more semi-sheer coverage with noticeable translucency but far more coverage than the others--this may be a good thing for some, if you prefer greater coverage. The texture was moderately slippery with a gel-like consistency that glided across the lips without tugging. It seemed a little denser than the other shades, and I noticed some color pooling in lip lines. This shade wore for three hours and was hydrating. Buxom Two-Timer (DC, $21.00) is lighter, brighter, more pigmented (90% similar). Laura Geller Mango Sorbet (PiP, ) is lighter (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Retro Coral (P, $37.00) is lighter, more pigmented (90% similar). MAC Dreaming Dahlia (LE, $20.00) is brighter, more pigmented, warmer (85% similar). Tarte Nude (P, $19.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
Like a drink of water for your lips, this tinted lip balm shields and rescues lips from early signs of aging, while delivering intense hydration and soft, subtle color. The antioxidant and vitamin-rich lip quencher is powered by a blend of essential extracts and oils to help restore the softness, moisture and elasticity that escapes lips over time while providing a protective antioxidant barrier against daily aggressors. The tinted everyday formula is vegan friendly and gently melts into skin to smooth over the look of lip lines with a radiant, dewy finish.
