I think one of my favorite things about the Tarte Holiday Collections would be their Lipsurgence Gift Sets. Lipsurgences are $24 each and this set contains FIVE full sized ones for $34 so it really is a super value. I also happen to be a huge fan of chubby lip balm sticks so although I have millions already, I can’t resist adding to my stash.
The Tarte Lips for Daze Lipsurgence Set includes:
- Haze (peachy nude) (matte)
- Craze (raspberry) (matte)
- Emblaze (cool crimson) (matte)
- Glaze (rosy mocha)
- Praise (marsala)

These come in two differently designed packaging with toppers that are either the regular gold or a black and gold chevron print. I was actually a little disappointed with this set as many of the shades in this set didn’t quite prove up to the Lipsurgence formula I know and love. I also had breakage with three of the shades. Not sure what happened but three of them just snapped off at the base, this could be a mass problem or it could be isolated to my set but it is worth mentioning.
One of my first issues with this set would be the color selection. In theory, they sound lovely and they even look lovely but many didn’t quite look right on my skin tone. Secondly, I really disliked how crazy dense and dry the mattes were. The matte Lipsurgence formula isn’t my favorite in the family of finishes they have available in this formula but it isn’t nearly as bad as I experience in this set. They just ran really, really dry and they dragged across my lips in an awful way during application.
I had no problems with Glaze and Praise both of which almost applied like one of the Lipsurgence Cremes in my humblest. These both had a beautifully creamy consistency that glides on lips perfectly. They provided light moisture and excellent color pay off.
Sadly, this isn’t a go for me due to the mattes which dominate the set. If they included more of the regular formula I’d likely Muse Approved it as it truly is an excellent value but the mattes really disappointed me formula wise so just keep that in mind when shopping this set.
The Tarte Lips for Daze Lipsurgence Set is available now at Sephora and Sephora.com.
