Tarte LipSurgence Lip Tint Spirited Review, Swatches, Photos

This was provided to me by a brand for review but all opinions expressed are my own

Now that Fall is here I’m busy hauling out all my peaches, oranges, and corals (not that they were stored away to begin with as I made proper use out of them this Summer). Tarte LipSurgence Lip Tint in Spirited was released this Summer during the mad orange trend we seen during the warmer months.

But don’t let the bright orange shade fool you, it’s just as perfect for Autumn as it was for Summer.

With a burst of minty flavor, plenty of glossy shine, and incredible moisture there isn’t a doubt that Tarte LipSurgence Lip Tint are a fond fav of mine. When I want subtle I reach for Clinique’s Chubby Balms but when I want wow, LipSurgence Lip Tints are the ticket.

And the wow factor most definitely goes to one of their newest shades, Spirited. Tarte describes Spirited as a Warm Poppy Red but for me it’s all orange….! Full on orange. Granted I typically look all crazy-like with orange anything on my lips but sometimes I like to dabble my little toes in the orange pool since I adore the color so very much.

Spirited is a surprisingly easy to wear pop of orange that’s bright, bold, and dramatic. I find it works great with a nude, natural eye look and doesn’t look too overpoweringly orange on my lips. The smooth, buttery formula yields an excellent color pay off so that shade you swivel up is exactly the color you’ll get on lips.

If your heart is set on a little dramatic orange for Fall do check out Spirited. This is a gorgeous shade that compliments the season beautifully!

Muse Approved for purchase.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

        Nope – I didn’t have it! But I’m seriously loving it. It feels awesome on my lips and looks great, too, if I do so say myself! Lol. I tweeted you a pic. Don’t be scared of my boofy scarf that makes me look like I’m neck-less. (I promise I have a neck!!)

        Also – the Forsaken veil smells so amazingggg! I haven’t even used it yet but I keep opening the box to sniff it!

    ha – all my lipsurgence lids have that crack down the side, too.

    I didn’t know about this color, I really like it and it looks great on you. I want it now, along with the new 5 piece lipsurgence set on sephora. 🙂

    I am really LOVING this one. I have a passion for the orange reds, reds, and full on orange. Really like Punch Drunk from Urban Decay’s Super Saturated Lip pencil collecton.

    This looks so amazingly juicy!

    And I don’t know if you’ve tried Bite Beauty High Pigment Matte Pencil (it’s not really matte-matte, just not glossy) in Zinfandel, but it is a very beautiful bright poppy red. I think you’d like. 😀
