Tarte Grunge Tarteist Lip Paint

Tarte Grunge Tarteist Lip Paint ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a deep, muted red-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a natural finish. It had opaque color payoff with a thinner consistency that wasn’t too watery or too dense, so it spread easily across the lips but applied evenly. On me, this shade wore well for six hours but was drying over time. MAC Antique Velvet (P, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). Tarte Wannabe (P, $20.00) is less glossy (90% similar).

Tarte Rave Tarteist Lip Paint ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plummy-taupe with neutral undertones and a soft sheen. It had rich pigmentation that covered the lips evenly and smoothly. The texture was thin and somewhat slippery, so it moved around more than other shades and only lasted for four hours, despite being a darker shade. It was somewhat drying over time. ColourPop Teeny Tiny (P, $6.50) is warmer (90% similar). ColourPop Stingraye (LE, $6.50) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). Makeup Geek Socialite (P, $12.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Maybelline Gone Greige (DC, $7.49) is lighter (80% similar). ColourPop TooLips (P, $7.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tarte Naughty Tarteist Lip Paint ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a deep, inky black with subtle, cool undertones and a natural sheen. It had good pigmentation with a slightly thin texture that spread across the lips easily, but it was a little streaky in places and tended to pool into lip lines. The deeper shade made it harder to notice that, though.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Tarte Tarteist Lip PaintTarte Tarteist Lip Paint ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a pigmented, matte liquid lipstick that’s long-wearing. First thing to note is that these never fully dry down, so they are not transfer-proof, but they are less drying than the typical liquid lipstick that dries down completely. They are quite pigmented and despite transferring onto cups, while you eat, and so forth, a lot of the color is left behind. You can also touch-up without having to completely remove the formula. The texture is inconsistent; some shades are thin and have a soft shine even after ten minutes of wear, while others are almost mousse-like in the tube, and these ones tend to be more matte from the get-go. There is a very subtle mint scent, but I don’t notice it at all once it is on. I do notice that it is easier to get these on the teeth than other lip products. The formula is lightly to moderately drying over time with average to long-wear, depending on the shade. Some shades settled into lip lines over time. The majority are satin to semi-matte with a little sheen, which you can either blot once for a matte finish or wait about an hour or two for it to naturally mattify (like any satin finish really).

I like all of these, but most curious about Rave. It looks like it has some gray in it, wonder if I can pull it off without looking dead or sick. Seems like brands everywhere are issuing gray or grayish lippies, I’m seriously thinking of buying more CP Petit Four lipliners and just mixing it with my existing lipsticks to come up with my own color that’s flattering, and it’ll save me from having to buy new lippies.

It might be one that works, as I don’t think it is very gray or cool-toned compared to other ones out there.

Out of these 3, I’m really liking Rave a lot. But it’ll be difficult to justify buying it since I do have Colourpop TooLips and another mauvy-brown shade that’s lighter and pinker in Cheap Thrills. Thinking of mixing a tiny bit of each together just to see how close it gets to Rave.

Hmmm, I wonder if Hot Chocolate varies by batch?? On me, it’s a muted brown with some dusty mauve- gray undertones on me, it looks nothing like what it looks like on Temptalia. It seems to be darker version of Maybelline Gone Greige on me.

Rave is a MUST buy!!! But I actually want all three!!! I love wearing black lipstick out to concerts and stuff, and this one would probably last longer than Chambourd does on me! And the other two are everyday colors for me! I’m loving most of the new shades!
