Tarte Lipstick Collection

My favourite lipstick for a while has been my Tarte lip paint in Grand. I got it from my Tarte Treasure Box on my birthday and I’ve loved it ever since. In a recent Tarte sale, I decided to buy some more of the lip paints. They had two little gift boxes, and I couldn’t decide between the two, so I got both!

Tarteist Lip Trio

So this is a travel size lip kit, containing two tarteist lip paints and a lip liner. Each colour is a shade of pink. I don’t have much pink lipsticks in general, so I wanted to try it.

The lip crayon is in bubbly (pink berry). The lipstick with the black lid is a quick dry matte lip paint in epic (pink raspberry), while the lipstick with the gold lid is a glossy lip paint in token (pink nude).

I used the liner with Epic, and I think it’s appropriately named. I really like this colour on me! It’s quite a dark pink, almost red. It was easy to apply and felt smooth on my lips. It dried matte quite fast. There was a lot of colour pay off after just one coat which I really love about these lipsticks. As for the lip liner, it glided on so smooth. I don’t often wear lip liners (cause I don’t have one), but I can definitely see the appeal of it. It makes lipstick look a lot cleaner and tidier.

I look a bit sad in this, but it may be cause I don’t really like lip gloss. Token is a nice nude colour, but it does feel sticky due to it’s glossy nature. The colour itself is more nude than pink, and is similar to a lipstick I already have. I don’t think I’d use this one that much. I also didn’t use the liner for this, as it’s darker than the lip gloss and I didn’t like how it looked.

Tarteist Lip Wardrobe Volume II

Another travel kit, but this time it has two mini lip paints. Both are pinky again, but as I already got one mini set, I figured why not get another. The first is a quick dry matte lip paint in rose (rosy nude), and the second is a creamy matte lip paint in fomo (mauve).

Rose reminded me a little of the one tarte lippie I already have Grand, but it’s a bit of a deeper colour. It worked nicely with the lip liner from the other set. Like with Epic, there was a lot of colour in just one coat. It did feel a little drying, but maybe that was cause I’d already tried a few other lipsticks and removed them. This one has more colour than other nude lipsticks I have, so I can see myself using this a little more.

Finally out of the new lippies, we have Fomo. A hilarious name. I really like this one. It’s a mauve colour, so it’s more of a purple-y colour. It reminds me a little of my purple NYX lipstick in Bustier. As always, the colour is amazing with just one coat. It feels velvety smooth once applied and dries matte quickly. I already really like this one too.

Those are all of my new tarte lipsticks, but as I had it nearby, I wanted to try on my old favourite just for fun!

Ah, Grand. I’ve had this since my birthday, and it’s the once I’ve worn the most out of all my lipsticks.

So now I have a lot of these mini lip paints, and I’m so happy! I have a range of nudes and more pinky tones. Between all of these and the rest in my lipstick collection, I don’t think I’ll need any more lipsticks any time soon haha!

  1. Such pretty colors and girl you rock them so well! <3

    1. Thank you so much Kate! 😄

  2. I haven’t tried them. I know, shocker right? But these look great on you, and they don’t look, I don’t know if this is the right term for makeup but, it doesn’t look over done. It looks natural. I like the flat look. Some lipsticks I see look very “wet” In my opinion, the flats look better. Of course, since I don’t wear makeup, my opinion might not count hahaha 😉

    1. Haha, I get what you mean! I prefer matte lipsticks as well. Matte, flat, same thing really 😃 I’ve never been find of glosses because of that ‘wet’ look. Plus they do actually feel wet and sticky, it’s weird 😂

  3. such a nice formula & they all look lovely on you! that first one is amazing 🙂

        1. They don’t feel too drying, and they’re not at all uncomfortable. They do tend to wear off when I eat or drink though so I have to reapply. Otherwise they’re all good 🙂
