tarte Amazon Butter Lipstick Trio
I LOVE THESE LIPSTICKS!!!
I wear these lipsticks 95% of the time...They are beautiful, soft colors, and they are so hydrating for these 59 year old lips!!! I have one suggestion/request/PLEA....Make these available individually!!!! I'm almost out of the rose, because I wear it more often, and I would like to reorder it alone....Now the trio is on waitlist, so I hope this isn't one of those products you let us fall in love with and then discontinue....Love the lipsticks...keep them in stock...and offer them to us individually...=)
Pretty, Light AND Hydrating On Lips
I got this trio on a OTO promotion about 4 months ago. I didn't try them out except for a quick swipe on the back of my hand when they arrived. I started using them 2 months ago and have been using them ever since. I love Tarte cosmetics and beauty products, so I was confident about these lipsticks before trying them.
I like that they are not heavy and end up making lips look dry and caked on within a few hours. They are very hydrating and keeps lips soft. If you drink or eat something, the lipstick does need to be reapplied, it doesn't have the lasting effects of a heavier lipstick. It's kind of a cross between a lip balm, lipstick and lip gloss all in one. The colors are soft and muted which make them appropriate for young girls just starting to use make up to the most experienced user. They are the perfect shades for summer when too much make up is...well, too much make up. All shades in the trio flattered my fair with pink undertones, so I don't understand the reviews stating that none of the colors worked. These are some of the most universally flattering colors I have seen. The mint scent/flavor is a nice extra. I also like the cute cardboard containers. Very earth friendly. I wouldn't expect anything less from Tarte.
These are my go to lipsticks. I keep them in my bag for touch ups and they also refresh a heavier lipstick after it's been on for a few hours and startes to dry out lips. They renew the color, provide moisture and add a nice glossy finish.
I liked them so much that I just bought the Summer lip trio yesterday, which are more intense colors than this trio. Same formula, more vibrant shades yet a higher overall rating. Go figure.
Great Sheer Color
I love the sheer color and the smooth way it applies. The colors are nice and go with everything. Also no strong fragrance/taste. I don't like lipsticks that taste like a perfume bottle. However, the staying power is just not there. It only lasts an hour or so and then you have to reapply.
I knew these would be sheer since I got the Plummy Rose I think it was in another kit. The Rose color actually puts some stain on my lips so it lasts longer than the other colors and I like to top it with the lighter pink sometimes. I knew I would not like the Coral, but planned on using it at night to sleep in for moisture. I have another brand of sheer color that stains, and I like to use it as my first coat but it is too dry on its own, and then top it with one of these pinks. I feel better using something with natural ingredients on my lips since I don't want to ingest any weird ingredients. I think these last about as long as any lipstick does on me except for those that are meant to last 12 hrs and have to have the topcoat, which really does not make them less drying and I can't stand how they feel on my lips, so I just don't expect any lipstick to stay on through eating etc. and since these are so soft and sheer I don't mind reapplying them anyway. They feel like gloss but I like the way it colors better than a regular gloss.
Love The Feel Of This Lipstick
These lipsticks are so hydrating. The peppermint is a nice pick me up. I'm giving only 4 stars because the coral looked awful on me but all corals do. I like the rose the most. These lipsticks aren't pigment rich mattes but I wouldn't say they are sheer either and although they're very hydrating they're not a gloss. The rose gives me a good wash of color and it has staying power for me. I also like the packaging. It's Eco-friendly and although my purse is crammed full with all sorts of things I haven't had any problems with the tubes getting smashed or even slightly damaged. It would be great though to have more shades to choose from.
Not long lasting as stated
I bought this product due to the fact that when the Tarte representative bit into an apple with this lipstick on, no lipstick was left on the apple. I assumed it would be long lasting & stay on your lips. But that's not the case. The lipstick does stay on, but maybe for 30 to 60 min. I don't know what the rep had on when she bit the apple, but no way was it just this product! It couldn't be! It left stains on my coffee cup when I took a drink from it. Got to work 20 min after applying it, & it wasn't the same as when I first put it on. It wasn't as deep a color as when it first when on.
I am keeping them tho. Just too much of a hassle to return them.
My first Tarte purchase - just ok. The colors are a little off on me and I was expecting a more moisturizing feel. Pretty good and I will keep.
Please make more . . .
I like this lipstick trio. The lipsticks are moisturizing and look good on me though the colors are in light shades. I actually bought a second set of these because I wanted to have a backup just in case these sold out. I would like to see the Tarte Amazon Butter Lipstick Trio come in more wearable shades.
Great Quality, Amazing Value
I really like this Tarte Butter Lipstick Trio firstly because of the wearable colors. I also love the balm like feel of the product that is not too shiny and not too matte. It's just right. I really like the packaging as it doesn't add weight to my hand bag. Lastly, I love the mint flavor which gives me a quick "pick-me-up" each time I use it. Well done Mo :)
I liked this lipstick...very creamy and pretty spring colors!
Not Up To Tarte Performance
I was very disappointed in these. They have very little color and are not long lasting. The packaging is not very good either. The paper like tubes are inexpensive looking. I should have returned these and sorry that I kept them. No more Tarte lipsticks for me.
Good for a Sheer Wash of Color
These colors were all gorgeous on the show so I had to try them - I'm always on the lookout for pretty moisturizing lipstick. The best color, by far, is the rose. It looks good sheer and with a heavier application. I have light, neutral skin and this wasn't too dark - gave my lips a very nice rosy color. The soft pink and the coral are nice if you apply them lightly, but they definitely do not give lots of color. Now, personally, I like that because I favor a sheer lip look.
If you prefer a more matte, color-rich lip then this is NOT the set for you. But if you want a sheer wash of color (and don't mind reapplying during the day as you will with any sheer lipstick) and are a fan of Tarte, then I think you would enjoy this set.
