tarte LipSurgence Lip Stain
This had the smell and taste of being old and rancid. Peach color was nice but I threw in the trash. Normally I am very pleased with Tarte. Maybe this isn't a popular color and has been in the warehouse too long. I personally liked the color. I won't let this prevent me from ordering Tarte items in the future but won't order the lip stain again. I've ordered previously in the pink colors and found it had a peppermint taste which I liked. Maybe this was just a bad batch.
But leaves the lips fast! Pretty color! Lid keeps coming off in my purse! Not worth the cost! I would purchase Laura Geller first and hers does everything that she promises! Sorry Tarte just not a good product for me!
Everything you want from a Lip Product
It has amazing color, staying power, and really good moisturizer for your lips, even if first thing on your lips in morning! Much more moisturizing than the previous lipsurgence stain I had, but the first one's staying power was better too. I think because it was less moisturizing, but I'd take moisturizing over color any day. You can always reapply!
The perfect lip stain
I love the Rose color LipSurgence lip stain. The packaging makes it very easy to apply and the bottom of the component twists up so you can get more formula and do not need to sharpen. This is the best product to have in your bag for quick touchups throughout your busy day. The color is subtle and perfect for any occasion and leaves your lips stained a beautiful soft pink while moisturizing them as well. Would definitely recommend.
EXTREMELY PRICEY BUT LOVE THE ROSE
I DON'T UNDERSTAND THE PRICE, I FEEL GOUGED, but the enchanted Rose is awesome.
does not stay
This is the first Tarte product I have not loved... this simply is a glorified lip balm. The color does not stay. I am very particular about my lip product, I do not have time to reapply color throughout the day, this does not fit the bill. Back it comes.
the best yet...
I am 68, lots of wrinkles around my mouth. This product, as I have used it the last few days, doesn't bleed! That in itself is amazing. Also, love putting it on, it just feels good. Surprised to see that after putting it on yesterday, looked into the mirror this morning and the color was still there...it actually tinted my lips. Love that!. Applied my gloss and am ready to go, but really like that when my gloss wears off, color remains underneath...will be back for this.
DRY DRY DRY
This went on smoothly enough and looked nice. An hour later I looked in the bathroom mirror and the outline of my lips had plenty of color while the inside of my lips color had completely faded and was very chapped looking. Later in the day I was "biting" off dry flaky pieces of my lip. Gave another chance the next day and continued to apply lip balm over top. This helped slightly but it was just too drying. Not a flattering look!
MY GO TO LIP PRODUCT
I like a light hue on my lips and alternate between the peach and pink colors. The balm is great, I live in Arizona so my lips are always dry and other lip balms just don't work, not to mention they don't have good color.
The peach is a TRUE peach, I am redhead and can vouch for this, not sure why it went "pink" on one of the other customers, NEVER has happened to me. And the pink is soft and beautiful.
Product is priced a little high, but I don't mind since it's a product I know if I put it on -- it's going to look good and I am conditioning my lips.
I always have one of these with me at all times. LOVE THIS PRODUCT!
misrepresented staying power
I have used product for 2 weeks, and the product DOES NOT stay on lips at all nor does it supposedly make lips plumper.
Not a good buy
I got this in a kit. It's very soft and isn't a stain. Goes on smooth, but wears right off too. It would be better worn over regular lipstick, as a glossy topper. I use it that way. I wouldn't purchase it again though.
This One Sets the Bar For ALL Other Lip Products!!
I bought my first one of these @ a mall store that shall remain nameless (but begins w/ an 'S'),....."My Bad", (QVC prices SO much better), & have not bought another lip product of any kind since! Just keep buying these & experimenting w/ different colors. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them! The shades, consistency, glide on application, longevity of wear & peppermint smell/taste, (to boot!), are what keeps me coming back 4 more!!! This one's a "keeper", for sure!
