Tarte Lipsurgence Lip Creme ($24) arrive in four shades for Summer 2015 and are now available as a permanent part of Tarte’s Lipsurgence Collection. You might recall Lipsurgence Lip Cremes were exclusive to QVC for a little bit and also made an appearance in the QVC Tarte Bow & Go Today’s Special Value two years ago.
I love that these are now permanently available from Tarte. One minor issue, can they please be permanent? As they truly are one of my favorite Lipsurgence formulations and finishes!
Tarte Lipsurgence Lip Pencils have been my gateway drug into the world of chubby lip pencils. I have a mild obsession with lip pencils and most of that obsession started with Tarte’s formula. Tarte was one of the first brands to do chubby tinted lip pencils and although the market is saturated with them at the moment I still love and use Tarte’s formula most often than not.
Lipsurgence have made the rounds and are formulated in any number of ways at the moment! From matte to sheer and now creamy too. I’d like the Lip Creme formula to the Matte Lip Tints in the Lipsurgence range but with a far creamier consistency and a much more pigmented formula that sets to a smooth satin finish that’s very creamy and slightly hydrating. I think the Lip Creme formula proves the heaviest and most pigmented in the Lipsurgence family but still applies and wears beautifully. Yes, they do indeed have the customary peppermint taste and flavor so if you’re sensitive to beware.
Tarte Lipsurgence Lip Creme Swatches (Illusion, Empowered, Serene)
Lipsurgence are known for being sheerer however, the matte range are fairly pigmented. However, if you’ve always desired something creamier with opaque pigmentation you should adore the Lipsurgence Lip Creme formula. These glide on with a super soft, creamy texture that wears for hours with gorgeous, intense color that doesn’t fade easily and when it does leaves a hint of a stain behind. The texture is just beautiful and I can’t rave it enough!

Tarte Empowered Lipsurgence Lip Creme
It’s sorta an odd release for me as if I had to choose a season I’d likely feel like these were best suited for Fall or Winter versus Summer but I can’t complain I’m just happy to have new shades to choose from and ones that will be available at Sephora and Ulta from now on versus QVC only. No worries if you have the shades from the Bow & Go Set as these shades are brand new and not repromoted.
All in all if you love creamy, pigmented lip products you’re sure to adore Tarte Lipsurgence Lip Cremes if you haven’t yet tried them!
