Hi Friends! Hope your weekend was fun and eventful, unfortunately, now it’s back to the daily grind…
I had a nice Monday morning laugh however, thanks to @karenmbb on instagram…(How funny is she!?)
-Inspired by tarte’s award-winning lip tints, this glossy addition to the LipSurgence™ family will perfect your pout with a brightening pop of color and lasting shine.
-Product Performance: This hybrid addition to tarte’s signature LipSurgence™ line delivers all the plumped-up benefits of a gloss and pigmented performance of a tint in an antioxidant-rich formula. Each ultra-hydrating, vanilla flavored lip gloss imparts natural-looking color to enhance your complexion while drenching lips in moisture and mega-watt, non-sticky shine. Infused with vitamin E, jojoba seed oil and flower extract, this multi-tasking formula helps smooth the look of fine lines and wrinkles while moisturizing dry lips for a healthy, plumped-up appearance that lasts. The unique applicator wand features an ergonomic tip that gently glides around the shape of your lips for a foolproof application every time.
Applicator: As you can see above, the applicator is a “unique” shape and has an deep indent instead of a traditional slanted doe foot applicator. I didn’t notice anything too special about this shape, except the fact that it created a thick gloss line around the top lip where you try to get close to the edges. (Like, where you would normally put lip liner, there was a thick line of gloss because of the angle of the applicator…) does that make sense? It was easily fixed though with some dabbing to get rid of the line.
Formula:This gloss is kind of thick and on the sticky side and it feels like it gets stickier as time goes on. When its almost completely worn off, my lips feel like there is a residue on them and they get slightly peel-y. It also has a slight mint scent and mild tingle.
Color: The color looks quite bright in the tube, but in fact it is a light sheer red with gold shimmer. It looks very pretty and natural on the lips making them look full and healthy. Because it is slightly thick, it lasts about 4 hrs before you need to reapply.
Final Verdict: I really love the color of this gloss, it is so shimmery and natural looking. However, it is a bit sticky for my personal taste but I should note that I do have a LOW tolerance for sticky glosses. 😉 I will use this, but I wouldn’t buy another one. They currently have 10 shades available and they retail for $19.
FYI: Tarte is having a 30% off sale until Midnight tonight (8/4) so if you are interested in anything get it now! My personal favorites are their Lip Tint in Carefree and the Cheek Stain in Exposed!
Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a nice rest of your Monday! xo, Kristina
