tarte LipSurgence lip stain
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!
Best Lip Pencils
These go on great..Please make these in a a trio in matte colors again..
Nope!! Not worth it and the stain color is hideous
Except for the balm, this product is not even close to being worth the money especially when you factor in the shipping and handling both ways when a return is involved. The color going on is weird and then you're left with a hideous pink stain on your lips no matter what shade you bought (at least in the berry, rose and pink line. I didn't try the reds or oranges. I highly recommend Revlon's Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in the balm only, not the balm + stain. And it's only 5 - 9 bucks depending on where you buy it.
I love this!
I love Tarte but it does seem as if their colors are not consistent sometimes. I love this one in Lust. I love red lipstick, and this is perfect for summer. I get plenty of color but its not too heavy...not a lipstick consistency, but more of a stain. Its NOT sticky like a gloss. The color doesn't last long but it feels good on your lips and has a hint of mint.
I am in love with this lip stain. It glides on silky smooth and leaves a beautiful stain on your lips. Very kissable.
Color way off
This product feels good on the lips, but I ordered the peach, and on me it is a very weird pink color. Sending it back, but if it had actually been a peach color, I would have enjoyed using it.
lids crack and break
I really sort of liked the product, but what good is a lip product that doesn't have a lid. I bought four at Christmas and all four had the lids break, something like that makes me not want to take a chance on ordering again.
Not so fast...
I had read some ALLURE reviews about the Best Lip Stains and Tarte's was on their list; however, it is absolutely no different than other lipsticks. Sure, it's a nice color, glides on very smoothly but drink a glass of water, IT'S ON THE GLASS RIM. I have to apply this just as many times throughout the day as drugstore lipsticks so NO, don't think I'll be giving this a glowing review.
