Tarte Bestie is a neutral-toned, light brown with a matte finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $20.00 and contains 0.2 oz.
Tarte Bestie Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a muted, rosy pink with strong, warm brown udnertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque coverage that went on smoothly and evenly, though it looked a little streaky initially--but it seemed to self-level and dry down to a streak-free finish.
The Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint (whew! that's a mouthful) is supposed to have full coverage, matte finish, be kiss-proof, and lasts "all day." Most of their claims are accurate; it had good pigmentation, was matte, and didn't transfer, though it only wore for five and a half hours, so it's not the most long-wearing lipsticks I've come across (particularly when it comes to liquid lipstick formulas). It was lightly drying, and it had a softer, more natural feel on the lips that wasn't as prone to cracking or weighing lips down.
Create full coverage lip looks with this lightweight, liquid-to-matte lip paint. It dries down instantly with no transferring, and the comfortflex formula means it moves with your lips without drying out, cracking or feathering. With the easy applicator wand, you can line and shade lips with high-impact, opaque matte color in 20 nude and bold shades powered by concentrated mineral pigments for all-day vibrancy and comfortable wear.
