Another day, another matte liquid lipstick.
Last year I got the chance to try out Tarte’s Tartiest Lip Paints, a matte liquid lipstick that rivalled it’s other beauty brand counterparts. As someone who loves the Kylie Cosmetics ones I was so excited to try Tarte’s formula, and after trying Bestie, a colour they previewed at Sephora late last year, I knew it was going to be an amazing product.
According to Tarte’s official site, there are 26 different shades available in this quick-dry, full-coverage transfer-proof liquid lipstick. There’s everything from nudes to reds to pinks to berries. Colour goes on opaque and dries down quickly to a matte finish which stays on your lips for hours at a time with minimal upkeep. The formula is super lightweight and colour doesn’t transfer once it’s set, which means that it won’t crack or feather out. Although this is a matte liquid lipstick, the wear is quite comfortable, meaning that it won’t dry your lips out (the worst feeling).
The applicator is a pretty standard one for liquid lipsticks. There is a slight curved edge to it so you can use it to line your lips, ensuring an even application. I actually really like how these apply as they aren’t too wet when you get them on and they really do set quickly. I find them to last a lot longer than some of the other brands out there and when it comes to taking them off, it can be a little difficult since they set to the lips like glue.
I received six colours to try out, four nudes, a red, and a berry.
The six shades I got were OG, a greige; Exposed, a rosy nude; Low Key, a true nude; Obsessed; a mauve berry; Festival, a nude mauve; and Extra, a bright red. OG is my favourite hands-down, however, Exposed came in a close second. I have a million and one red lipsticks in my collection, so I wasn’t that excited to try out Extra, however, for a matte liquid lipstick, this one really does stay put, although I did have to touch up the inside area of my mouth after eating, but I feel like that’s quite standard when it comes to red.
On a scale of one to Kylie, how well do these hold up? I would give them a solid eight or nine, depending on the shade. I feel like the wear on these are very similar in that they aren’t drying (and removal can be a bitch). For C$24 each they are priced quite average for a matte liquid lipstick. If you love matte liquid lips (and right now who doesn’t?), then I would pick one or two of these up. There’s ore than enough shades that I’m sure you’ll find one you’re going to be obsessed with ;).
Have you tried Tarte’s Tartiest Quick Dry Matte Lip Paints?
