Happy Hearts Day Folks! I hope everyone’s feeling the love this V-day. Whether you’re gonna be an orphan or has a date in this day of love, make sure you slay your lip game. What better way to nail that perfect pout than to try Tarte’s newly-improved matte liquid lipsticks. Yes, their previous matte liquid lipsticks weren’t that good and they don’t really turn into a matte texture, swatched HERE. They’re still available and are called Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paints.
The newly-released and promising matte liquid lipsticks from Tarte are named Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paints. And yes, they’re true to their description. They do dry quickly. Like, really really quick, and they don’t budge. Only a waterproof micellar water or makeup remover could take these new lippies off. They come in different shades that are very wearable (lots of nudes and mauves) with a mild non-irritating vanilla scent. Each tube costs $20. Available HERE.
When Tarte released these Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint, I was so excited, because they really make good compatible colors that suit my skin tone, and we all know that their previous matte liquid lipsticks were not exactly what everyone hoped they’d turn out to be. Yet these new Quick Dry Matte Lip Paints deliver an almost perfect matte liquid lipstick in the same caliber as Kat Von D, Stila, Too faced, Smashbox and Anastasia. Well-pigmented, creamy, lightweight, waterproof, transfer-proof, long-lasting and quick-drying.
- Rose´ – Rosy Nude. Looks more of a nude-beige shade on my pigmented lips, but not nude enough to make me look washed-out. The perfect nude shade for anyone with a neutral to warm skin tone.
- Bounce – Rose Coral. Seems like a twin of Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Double Dare. A gorgeous blend of muted reddish/pinkish coral with a hint of cocoa. This color is so meant for Valentines.
- Delish – Rosy Mauve. My favorite “my lips but better” in a matte liquid lipstick formulation. This simply gives my lips enough drama without looking like I’m vying for the Oscars, lol, joke. Definitely, this is not too bright and not too dark. Take note that this shade is quite similar to the Front Row shade, pictured on top.
- Front Row – Deep Mauve. A shade almost identical to Delish, but slightly darker. This has a brownish tone, like a blend between Kat Von D Lolita and Lolita II. It is a beautiful shade especially for medium skin tones and can be worn for any occasion.
I really really like these new Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paints by Tarte. Although they focused quite a bit on having more nude colors, they also have a decent selection of muted mauves, cocoa browns and wearable reds in their newly-improved matte liquid lipstick line. Just a bit of drawback though, even though these lipsticks are almost perfect to me, they may feel a bit too drying sometimes, but that seems to be almost always the case with good matte liquid lipsticks. Something’s gotta give.
Happy Valentines Day Again Friends!
