Pillowtalk

Tarte Pillowtalk Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paints ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a light peach with a hint of pink paired with a flat, matte finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage, which went on fairly evenly, but it had a little bit of streaking, even after it had finished drying. The texture was unforgiving when I smiled, with the color separating at my deepest lip lines. This shade lasted for four and a half hours before it had broken down so much at the center of the lips that reapplication would have been necessary to keep wearing it. The formula was moderately drying while worn.

The Quick Dry formula is supposed to have “full coverage” with a “transfer-proof” finish that won’t crack, dry your lips out, or feather. After trying several shades in the formula, there is a lot of inconsistency across shades. Some are nice, some are terrible; some absolutely “crack” and others have a soft matte finish that is transfer-proof without making lips look drier. The formula is, overall, lightly to moderately drying on me, though the wear is longer at five to seven hours and most shades had good pigmentation.

Salty

Tarte Salty Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paints ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a medium peach with warm undertones, a subtle pink tint, and a matte finish. The color payoff was almost opaque, but there was some translucency so a second layer would be recommended for fuller coverage. Like Pillowtalk, the color pulled away at the lip lines and looked “cracked.” This shade lasted for four hours and was drying while worn, plus the way it wore down was uneven (strongest fading at the center of the mouth).

Ingredients

Isododecane, dimethicone, trimethylsiloxysilicate, quaternium-90 bentonite, polypropylsilsesquioxane, beeswax/cera alba/cire dโ€™abeille, nylon-12, polyethylene, sucrose acetate isobutyrate, propylene carbonate, tocopherol, tocopheryl acetate, ascorbyl palmitate, polyglyceryl-6 polyricinoleate, VP/hexadecene copolymer, triethyl citrate, silica, silica silylate, polybutene, phenoxyethanol.

Get It!

Tarte Get It! Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paints ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark peach with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, though it was not fully opaque in a single layer–two layers would be necessary for full coverage. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and easy to to spread across the lips, but it was a bit streaky (even after it dried down). It didn’t “crack” when I smiled, but it was clingy and drying over the five hours it lasted. I also found that it faded unevenly over time.
