These are probably my favorite lip product of the moment. I mean so much so I’m thinking that if I had to choose one lipstick and one lipgloss to use for the rest of my life it would be these new Tarte The Lip Sculptor Lipstick & Lipglosses!
Tarte already has an Amazon Butter Double-Ended Lipstick Creme & Lip Tint Duo for a while now, but I have to say they really did an outstanding job with the new Tarte The Lip Sculptor Lipstick & Lipglosses.
I’m that type of person that applies lipstick but I end up applying lipgloss on top because I like the glossiness and shine that gloss provides. So, essentially, Tarte is combining the best of both worlds with these duos which can be customized any way you want. Wear the lipgloss only, just wear the lipstick, or go ahead and wear both like I do, these duos give you a nice variety of ways to wear your lipstick and gloss. Add in the fact the packaging is super travel-friendly (no need to carry two products) and you have the perfect lip product.
The gold barrel features the lipstick on top with the gloss tucked neatly into the bottom of the barrel. The gloss weights in at 0.06 oz where as the lipstick is 0.12 oz in size.
Weirdly enough the lipstick formula is marketed as a satin matte lipstick but for me the consistency is a thin, super slick, highly pigmented formula with a slightly shiny finish. The lipstick alone wears for a good five hours and during that wear my lips felt pleasantly moist and comfortable. The gloss side is far from sheer and packs a good deal of color pay off so wearing it alone is a great option. It’s a thinner, moisturizing formula that doesn’t feel sticky or tacky and wears for a four hours with a pleasantly hydrating feel through the wear. Both the gloss and lipstick contain coconut oil, maracuja, and Vitamin E and are mineral oil free with a sweet vanilla flavor and fragrance that disappears a few minutes after application.
I was very, very pleasantly surprised how comfortable and hydrating this formula is. Whether I was wearing the lipstick or lipgloss alone or both together my dry lips felt pleasantly moist and comfortable. The color remained true and intense through the wear and didn’t migrate, feather, or creep around my upper lip line. It’s a emollent formula that leaves lips drenched in moisture and soft and smooth well after it wears away.
I don’t normally talk about colors in my reviews as I stink at describing shades. But I have to say ALL of these shades are such a joy to use and should be universally flattering on many skin tones. There’s a rich selection of berries and roses here as well as wearable nudes. You’re bound to come across at least five or six colors you’ll want to take home for you. And the formula remains consistent with each shade so I never had issues with bad performance on any of the colors, each one looked amazing and performed fantasically.
Overall, Tarte The Lip Sculptor Lipstick & Lipgloss is a must have. I can’t recommend these enough. Moist, smooth, beautiful color in a range of gorgerous shades what more could a girl or guy want?
Very Muse Approved.
I bet you can’t stop at one shade once you’ve tried these
