Tarte Double Dose Lipgloss Review

Summer is here which would make me very late reviewing these! Eep!

I’ve had Tarte’s Double Dose Berry Boost & Gloss tucked away for the better part of a month and I just broke into them this week!

I get a bit hyper when it comes to innovative, unique packaging and Tarte gets the award for coolness with these new glosses! The lipgloss tube consists of two chambers which you can press to release more color versus more shine. Press the middle and you can slick on some nicely pigmented lip color. Press the center and you get a burst of shiny gloss to wear on it’s own or on top of the lip color. Cool right? The taste is a sweetly minty fresh cocktail which is definately approved by the Muse as I adore my glosses to have flavor but hey why you’re ingesting your Tarte Double Dose Lipgloss don’t forget that it’s packed full of good stuff for your skin! Cool now I’m not so worried about the poisons of chewing off my gloss/lipstick!

I tried out Pomegranate Punch which is a beautiful sparkling red and Go Go Goji which is a cross between a pink and a coral. Pigmentation was excellent and I liked the fact that these weren’t sticky or tacky plus as I mentioned they were quite tasty!

I rarely go without staining my lips prior to gloss but I easily got away with using these on their own as they are packed full of color and depending on how much you layer you can do a natural or loud look!

Sporting Pomegranate Punch for a just kissed pucker!

Sporting Go Go Goji for a natural lip look!

Without Flash

With Flash

Each tube will set you back $21 USD which does seem a tad bit high but the color payoff is excellent plus they slick on like an absolute dream so you get what you pay for quality wise!

Even though I’m a bit late reviewing these will take me safely from Spring to Summer for some gorgeous looking lips!

The Muse is loving Tarte Double Dose Lipglosses at the moment!

How about you?

    I really love the Pomegranate Punch on you. You’re hot !

    From what I know, Too Faced have done packaging similar to those! I forgot the name of it but it’s “zest” or something about refreshment.

    I’m gonna have to try these out though, they look great!!

  • kahea

    I want all of them! I have Go Go Goji too but I’m loving Pomegranate on you! Great review!

  • Dancinggal

    Hey Muse, these colours are so pretty, and they look great on you too! I’m going through this major lip gloss/stain phase right now. I’ve been searching for the perfect lipstick, and I’ve decided they all look ridiculous on me and I’m going to stick with glossy lips from now on! Just got the Napoleon Lip Lacquer in Champagne, Red Rubies and Baby Lips, which I am currently IN LOVE with! Lol, keep up the awesome work. PS Hope you had a good trip.

  • suzie wuzie

    go go goji looks like a wonderful pinky colour. sounds delicious too!
