For me it’s the exact opposite. They are hard to explain. Almost like if you painted nail polish on your skin? But not hard or dry? Idk, but it’s the best formula I have tried EVER. Longest lasting, I can’t even tell I have anything on my lips, honestly I can’t recommend it enough and I know everyone’s different but try it!!!

Going by the looks of these, I’ve got a feeling that these may not have that awful dry powdery feel to them. Yet, I also have a funny feeling that these may be clingy, though. Interested in reading your reviews on the formula.

For me, they aren’t powdery at all. It’s really the best, most unique liquid lip formula I’ve tried and I am in love! Everything I’ve ever wanted in one- non-drying, amazingly long lasting, I can’t even tell there’s anything on my lips.

IDK, I like many of the colors, but they look kind of dry, esp. for winter. Interesting how the collection is called “Quick Dry”, reminds me of cement.

I see that there are polar opposites with some saying they look dry and others saying they look less dry than other liquid lipsticks. Based solely on the swatches I would have to say they look pretty dry to me and my lips just can’t tolerate the drying and cracking so I will have to wait for reviews. I have purchased so many lip products this year and really need to think about cutting back. I haven’t used a whole tube of lipstick in forever.

The lighter colors look dry and chalky to me. I like the medium toned ones: Bling,Front Row, Vibin, Killin it and the red XOXO. But only if not drying on the lips. No matter how much I like a lip color if it is drying I just can’t do it.

I bought the shade Bestie after I saw your review and I really like it! It’s the only liquid lipstick I’ve really been a fan of (I’ve returned KVD ones, Girlactick ones, etc) so I’m hoping these shades perform just as well!

I am really liking the Tarteist lip paint’s even though I was slow to realize how much I like them. They snuck up on me with the comfort of the formula and the ease of wear/maintenance. But I have early iterations. I haven’t tried these new Paints. A few of the shades are right in my happy lip color sweet spot so I’m probably going to amass more. Have you noticed people seem to really love the lip paints from Tarte or really dislike them? There’s not much in between. But I’m not around many people that will talk makeup with me or even know what these are lol so I’m not sure if my theory is true.

They just came out with like six new shades (Festival, Obsessed, Low Key, Exposed, OG and Extra)! please do a review on them. I need it before I buy any! Thanks to your swatches and reviews I know own and fallen in love with several colors (Delish, Bling, Killin’ it, etc.)
