tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick Trio
Good product but colors need some work
The consistency is perfect- somewhere between a full coverage lipstick and a balm. I love the feel and the look of it. The problem is that only the rose looks good on me. The coral (the lightest shade) looked neon orange on me. I had high hopes because it looked peachy pink on the model. I would only wear the tulip (aka red) once in a blue moon, so I will have to send them back. I would really love to have these available for individual purchase. Maureen said that these colors look good on everybody, but we all know that there is no way you can get three colors that look good on everybody. Maybe you would have better luck if you didn't put coral in any of the colors and didn't make any of them neon, but soft colors instead. I love the product and the idea, but please make them available for individual purchase.
Tarte has some nice products.And I use quite a few in this line.
Lately, I'm having trouble with quality issues. This set arrived with black mold on the sides of the lipstick itself. Needless to say, I sent the set back. I appreciate Tarte being more nature bent, but mold isn't the right direction here.
BRING BACK WATERMELON COLOR, & CORAL, PEACHES
The kits are nice, but usually only like a couple of colors out of kits. Should make each color a single purchase. I loved the watermelon, but see I can not get anymore, which I have gotten used to. I also used it on my cheeks for blush, since it was so creamy. I love the mint flavors, and make lips feel so creamy. If you make kits, please do not discontinue, if you are not going to make colors separate, because you finally find a color you like, which is so rare, these days, and when you do they discontinue it. Please also make more coral, and true peach shades, with kits.
I was expecting to only like 1 out of 3, but I love them all. I never wear lipstick, it's too dry and I'm so fair skin it washes me out, but I thought I would try these. My favorite is the coral, it is perfect for my light skin and everyone compliments me on it. I think these feel like lip balm, which is what I only wear normally. I'm not sure why the bad reviews, and I wish I could only purchase the coral in the future, as that is my absolute favorite. I wish we could set up a swap because I would rather swap the others for more of the coral!
I've purchased this trio in both the spring and summer configurations. As a matter of fact I was only perusing the Tarte page to see if there was a Fall trio available. In the case of both previous purchases I was extremely satisfied.
Two of the three colors in each were perfect for me, the "lighter" one of each was a tad to young looking so in both instances I passed that one to my daughter. As I am sixty years old, I'm sure the majority of purchasers would not consider the "lighter" shades too young, so I am baffled by the negative comments. Lovely feel, beautiful colors, that's not enough to make you happy? Honestly!
Colors all have a hint of coral and the texture is nothing special. Not as expected.
I love these lipsticks. They are so creamy. They don't leave your lips dry. Love most of the colors too. The colors that I'm not crazy about I give them to mom.
SO GREAT, DAUGHTER TOOK FIRST SET WITH HER!!
When they were first on air, I thought they had ALL the things I look for in lipsticks. I'm a blue eyed, very fair redhead and have dry lips, so have very specific wants and needs. I tried the coral first and LOVED the glam shade that made my face look young and lips felt dreamy and creamy. Tried another shade, same thing. Daughter came for a week visit with her family and my great new trio just disappeared , one by one. She lives in New York and has every brand available, yet LOVED these so much I told her to take them home and I bought a second set. She, by the way, has tanned skin, brown eyes and dark brown hair. She is my daughter, just hubby's coloring. So glorious TARTE works it's magic on all skin, hair colors and ages. Please bring back same darling tubes and more colors.
Not so good for me
I bought these lipsticks but they made my lips feel dry after a short while putting them on. I had to send them back. Maybe they would be good for other people .
Smooth and Creamy, Liked 2 of the 3 Colors
I purchased these because they were pitched as being moisturizing and they are. Some have mentioned the minty scent or sensation. I am very sensitive to smells and it is only a slight hint of mint and NO menthol sensation on your lips. The two rose colors are very nice. I am fair with very dark hair and they look great I LOVE the creamy rose color. It is like my lip color, with a pop! . The color lasts if you don't drink or eat right after applying. Now, with all that said, the coral color is horrible! It just doesn't seem to be of the same quality of the other 2 lipsticks. When applied the color sits on your lips like a cheap lipstick would, like you put on your 8 year old daughter's play lipstick. I don't understand why the quality of the coral is not the same as the other colors. Because of this I would be hesitant to purchase other colors if they offered them. The packaging is great and very nostalgic.
THE LIPSTICKS WERE GOOD QUALITY, GREAT COLORS. DISAPPOINTED WITH THE CARDBOARD PACKAGING FOR LIPSTICK. PRODUCT LOOKED LIKE YOU BOUGHT IT FROM A 99 CENTS STORE
If you are looking for a Chapstick lasting with slight color then these are for you. You will need to apply often for lasting color.
