Tarte Fairytale is a very cool-toned, very dark aqua with a matte finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $20.00 and contains 0.2 oz.
Tarte Fairytale Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium-dark blue-leaning aqua with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was buildable to opaque with two to three layers. The consistency was thin and spreadable, but it applied streakily and had a tendency to pull into lip lines as it was drying down.
The formula is supposed to have "high-impact, opaque matte color" that is non-drying and doesn't crack or feather. I've tried most shades in this formula, and it can be rather hit or miss--probably more misses than hits. Unfortunately, Fairytale was another miss, as it just did not apply well and absolutely did look "cracked" as soon as I smiled. The color lasted for four and a half hours on me before fading more heavily from the center of my lips, and it was somewhat drying over time.
