Skinny Dip

Tarte Skinny Dip Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy brown with warm undertones and a cream finish. There was a noticeable shine to the finish, but it didn’t feel too slippery applied, so I didn’t have issues with streaking. I did, however, get color that pulled into my lip lines initially, which worsened over time. There was enough creaminess that I was able to smooth some of the color out while I wore it, but it was hard to prevent without a lip primer or lip liner. It had nearly opaque coverage that still ended up applying better than expected, given the lightness of the color in this type of a finish. This shade wore well for four and a half hours on me and was hydrating over time.

The formula is supposed to be “long-wearing,” “full coverage,” and hydrating. The consistency has an incredibly smooth, creamy feel to it and has enough substance and thickness to it that it adheres well to the lips and usually doesn’t pull into lip lines. I felt like the formula felt slightly more emollient initially and “dried” a bit to more of a satin-to-cream finish after a few minutes (but not a true dry down, as it wasn’t transfer-resistant!). The majority of shades were very pigmented, easy to apply, comfortable to wear with light to moderate hydration over time, and lasted between four and seven hours on me. A few of the lightest and darkest shades weren’t as pigmented or were less flattering on the lips compared to more of the medium shades. There did not seem to be any added fragrance to it (smelled slightly waxy), and I didn’t notice any taste.

Pink Lemonade

Tarte Pink Lemonade Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium peach with warm undertones and a cream finish. This particular shade seemed to have more slip compared to most of the range, and I had trouble keeping the color in place–there were some visible streaks along the edges when I initially applied, and anytime my lips touched, there were “lines” left. The color slipped into my lip lines over time as well. It had semi-opaque coverage that lasted for four hours on me.

Beach Babe

Tarte Beach Babe Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a slightly muted, light-medium peachy-pink with warm undertones and a cream finish. It seemed slightly pinker applied to my lips compared o how it appeared in the tube or swatched on my arm. The consistency was lightweight, creamy without being too slippery, and never dragged on my lips. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which went on evenly without streaking. I had a touch of color that sunk into my deeper lip lines initially, and this worsened slightly over time but not too noticeably overall. The lipstick lasted nicely for five hours on me and was lightly hydrating.

Was mulling over skinny dip and pink lemonade, glad I went for beach babe. Skinny would make me jaundiced. Beach babe and Salt Lyfe should be on my doorstep today. Yay!

I love all of these new Tarte Lipsticks.They had a vault of all of them for purchase on Tarte.com right when they released them on their [email protected] on Instagram had the link up in her bio.I checked it out but didn’t have the money at the time to get it.It sold out very quickly.I hope they release it again because I keep hearing wonderful things about these from everyone that tries them.Plus I can’t decide on which colors I want!

Wish that I could get away with wearing Pink Lemonade! Strangely, I can get away with MAC Sweet & Sour or Peach Blossom as long as I’ve got a deeper lip liner to define the edges, and smudged inwards to give those pale nudes an ombre look.

I bet beach babe will be a it, it’s a little too much for me in the concealer level nude with my darker lip color.

I picked up boardwalk and I like it because it’s exactly my skin color. It looks like I have on sheer gloss but I love it for the neutral lip days. It has been my go-to everyday color.
