A229198 - tarte Holiday 5-pc Maracuja Divine Shine Lip Glosses
Pros AND Cons
Mixed emotions on this...love the sheerness and the staying power but the delivery system is horrible. It took over 125 clicks (stopped counting at 125) to even see the product; further, once prepped, the product tends to 'creep' out when in my purse (when I take the cap off to apply, an excessive amount of product is on the tip of the brush).
Not the Best Gloss
As others have stated, it takes forever to get the gloss out. My hand got tired from clicking and clicking. Even after you get it started, the next use can take a while to get the flow going. NOT A GOOD SYSTEM. Also felt the pigment was not dark enough. Too sheer and not enough color. May return.
Too much work!
The design seemed like it would be pretty basic to get the lip gloss going but I clicked it over 50 times and still nothing came out. I showed it to my niece who also uses makeup and she was able to get a dot after pumping it about another 25 times. It seems crazy to have to work so hard to get it to come out.
Great Colors, but...
Great colors, lovely lip softening properties, but poor choice of packaging for dispensing the gloss. Otherwise, this would have been a 5-star product with a Tarte-true quality. Kept them to enjoy the colors, but would not order again.
I bought this as a gift for my son's girlfriend. You have to click it many times to get the product out and sometimes when it finally comes out you get a clump of too much product. I wish the dispensing process could be improved.
I love tarte products and have never had a bad experience until now. These lip glosses are sticky, tacky. Hate the feel of these. Don't waste your money. Sorry Maureen.
Not understanding the bad reviews... although it takes a couple minutes to prime the gloss... about 140 clicks, yes, I counted! LOL!! They are excellent! I have a lot of the maracauja glosses from Tarte and I LOVE them! Sometimes you just need to exercise a bit of patience for something great. Once the gloss is primed initially, it's ready to go. You only need about 2-4 clicks for every use after that. I hate too much gloss at once, so I like that you have a little control with the amount of clicks for these. Also, my lips have been extremely dry for literally 2 years! Nothing I did made them better and I tried everything... until this gloss!!! I used this gloss and only this gloss for 1 week and my lips are not the slightest bit dry anymore!!! I am amazed!! Now I even wear it to bed, just a lighter application. I am soooo impressed with this gloss and almost every thing Tarte. Hope Maureen wins some" Best of Beauty awards" next year... she deserves it!!!
They do take an unusual amount of pumps initially to get them to work but when they finally do they are wonderful.They are the only lip product that actually stay on my lips and leave them soft, full, and hydrated. They do not leave an artificial stain and do not cause my lips to peel. Wonderful product
love lip gloss!
I love lip gloss and thought this was a great price for the amount you get! I admit it does take a lot of clicks to get the gloss out for the first time but after that it dont take much! i love the colors of these glosses!
Worst lipgloss ever
It takes a long time to get the gloss out of the tube. I have fought with each tube since purchase. This is the worst gloss container I have ever bought.
WORST PURCHASE EVER
I thought I would give this a try because I love the Tarte foundation. Upon opening the first one, I kept pushing the button and turning it but nothing except the oil came out on the applicator. After shaking it a number of times the color finally emerged. However it was saturated with so much oil that it had barely any color at all. In addition to that, after applying it the oil caused it to bleed through my lip liner almost immediately. Thinking the first one was damaged, I tried the other 4 and received the same result. I love lip glosses, but this was not a good purchase for me. Unfortunately, I had to return it.
Best Lip Gloss
Best lip gloss ever bought, have 4 teen granddaughters from 13 to 19 and they love it had to give 3 of mine to them, and have to order more!! The pump is slow to work , but once it come down the brush works fine! Would recommend it , so moist and long lasting!
