Here’s batch two of the new Tarte LipSurgence Lip Glosses in Tipsy, Blissful and Fearless. I think these could be of interest to all card-carrying members of the CAPLGLN (Coral and Peach Lip Gloss Love Nation).
Tarte LipSurgence Lip Glosses in Tipsy, Blissful and Fearless
- Tipsy: a sheer coral
- Blissful: a warm peach
- Fearless: a shimmery pinkish coral
What’s with the funky doe-foot?
It’s curved to fit the contours of your lips, and the pointy tip makes it precise.
Is the doe-foot hard to use?
Not at all. It’s very precise, actually, particularly around the Cupid’s bow — very, very handy when I’m in the mood to wear an overdrawn lip look (where you apply your lip products outside your natural lip line to make your lips look fuller).
Tipsy and Blissful look kind of similar, yeah?
Sheer coral Tipsy and warm peach Blissful do look somewhat similar, yes. On my pigmented lips, they’re tough to tell apart. I do see a slight difference between them, though, if we’re going to split hairs… I think Blissful is a tad more pigmented.
Off the top of my head, both Tipsy and Blissful look similar to Urban Decay Naked Lip Gloss in Streak.
Tell me all about Fearless, ma!
I love the name and the golden glitter. It’s the most distinct shade in this batch — like a sheerer version of NARS Super Orgasm Lip Gloss with larger pieces of gold glitter.
What’s the glitter sitch on that?
Surprisingly, the glitter flecks in Fearless aren’t gritty, considering the size of the pieces (see them in the full-face shot?). This is classy glitter; not “klassy.”
Formula, flavor and finish
The thick, non-sticky formula starts super shiny but wears down to a slight shine over about an hour, and then will last another 2-3 hours after that. In other words, they’ll last through a glass of Two Buck Chuck (it’s 5 o’clock somewhere), but won’t make it through a tuna fish sandwich. As for flavors, yup, it’s a vanilla buttercream flavor and scent.
Meow or hiss?
Meow, although these three shades here may not be flashy enough to really stand out at a big event like your wedding or prom, but for everyday natural — sure.
Where can I find ’em?
At Sephora stores and online for $19 each.
