The color opacity is fantastic and the formula feels nice on the lips, HOWEVER, these are not long lasting at all!! I got TBT and although it’s a gorgeous color, omg… It comes off from the slightest touch. It’s actually really terrible! They last less time than a creamy bullet lipstick does. I’m returning mine asap.

Agreed, they do dry down though, and the transfer very little once dried down, but you can rub them off a bit with your fingers compared to the standard long wear matte formula. They’re a hybrid of the ultra matte and the Too Faced melted formulas.

But So Fetch didn’t want to behave properly in the middle of my bottom lip, I just could not get it completely opaque.

Julie Avatar

Right? They just feel so random. Like they put a bunch of the lingo they heard their grandkids saying in a hat and randomly named the lipsticks after them….they’re cringe-worthy, but at least they’re not offensive, which might matter!

Luiza Avatar

I thought I was the only one put off by the names… I would obviously still get them though, because as you said, they’re not offensive but I expected something different from Tarte. They always did seem more classy than that.

OMG, these look awesome!! I love the pigment and shine. ManBun is horribly named, but my fave color. And also loving the looks of Frenemy, and maybe TBT and Fomo. I’m SO excited for Tarte! Their line up has been so boring and neutrals- driven, I haven’t bought anything from them for at least 5 years, looks like this will be changing….

Laura Avatar

Hmm, maybe I’ve finally grown up but these names just aren’t appealing to me. They feel more like ColourPop names (and in some cases they are; wasn’t Frenemy one of CP’s?). TBT and FOMO look the prettiest to me, but I’m finding it a little ironic that I’m really wanting a shade called FOMO (fear of missing out), haha.

Catherine Avatar

I have TBT and so far I love it. I own most of the liquid lipsticks on the market and this is proving to be one of my favorites. I don’t understand the reviewer stating that they come right off, mine has been on all day so far, even after eating dinner and drinking coffee. I had to touch it up a tiny bit after dinner but I was shocked that it was mostly still on. It is not super dry like some of the liquids lips either. I’m liking it !

Glenda Avatar

I’m really curious to read your thoughts on these. I ordered mine lightning-fast (I was super excited for their release), and ended up so disappointed.
I tried Manbun on and thought it looked TERRIBLE. Super streaky, making every little dry spot evident. I was so sad.
It’s odd that looking at your pics, they look amazing! Sadly, it was not my experience. :/
I do think they “dry” (because they have the feel and the looks of a matte, but it are so NOT transfer-proof) comfortably on the lips, with kind of a weird powdery feel.
I wouldn’t mind the lack of longevity if it wasn’t for the terrible streakness. However, I definitely don’t think they are worth the price point.
Sigh…

The finish on these reminds me of the Armani Lip Maestros. Definitely NOT ultra-matte as described. Good for my lips; bad for my wallet! Eagerly awaiting your reviews!

I actually love the names, though I’m apparently in the minority 😛 And the colours look amazing! I’ve heard (and read in other comments) that they don’t dry totally matte, which I personally prefer because I find them more comfortable than an incredibly matte formula like the Kat von D. Can’t wait to get my hands on a couple (ManBun, Frenemy, and Selfish are particularly catching my eye)

Bonnie Avatar

Selfish, so fetch, tbt and fomo all look beautiful. I initially didn’t think I wanted ANY of these, but some look really nice on your lips Christine! I hope they review well! The names tho…. Yes, pretty cringe-worthy. SMH. 😉

Fran Avatar

Many of these look very pretty — I especially like the look of Adorbs, Twerk, Selfish, Fetch, Hangry, and Lovespell. I like that there’s a bit of sheen or shine to most of these. I’m looking forward to finding out if they’re easy to apply and comfortable to wear, too.
