Tarte Quench Lip Rescue

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Lip Rescue ($19) is a new awesome moisturizing lip balm that launched with the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Summer 2016 Collection exclusively at Sephora.

Don’t get me wrong I love lipsticks and lipglosses as much as the next girl but lip products like Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Lip Rescue are REALLY my type of formula. These are so slick, so smooth, and provide such natural color!

I love!

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Lip Rescue

Believe it or not Summer is around the corner and these Quench Lip Rescue Lip Balms are perfect for getting juicy, slick color on lips! Tarte dubs them a lip balm but they are so much more than that. Each one comes in a differently patterned cardboard casing (much like Amazonian Lip Butter) and weights in at 0.10 oz each. The patterns on the barrels are a nod to the “Rainforest of the Sea” Collection with images of starfish, coral reef, and other aquatic patterns that make up each barrel. It’s such a cute and beautifully presented lip product.

The formula is just as great as the packaging! These are a soft, melt-y lip balm that feel like a lip oil once applied with a high shine finish and a lovely hint of nice tint. I love how easily they glide across my dry lips and the beautiful color they provide. I also adore how shiny they make my lips. The wear time is a little shorter here at around two hours before the shine and color fades away but during that time they keep lips quite nicely hydrated and moist. They do have a peppermint fragrance and flavor that I found pleasant but some might find irritating.

Do love!

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.

    They look fantastic on you. The packaging might be THE prettiest lippie packaging on the market. Bonus points for tarte!

  • Lauren

    I snagged the berry and got a mini of the nude in the tiny lip duo. Omg muse I’m in love! I think I might go back for a full size of the nude 😉

    • Isabella Muse

      yay! glad you liked Lauren 🙂 It’s a really nicely formulated lip product!

  • Heather

    I love Opal. The formulation is beautiful – creamy, luxurious and easy to build without it getting messy.

    • Isabella Muse

      Yay! 🙂 glad you like Heather! I thought they were lovely too!

  • Emily F

    Love the Lip Rescue but your skin looks even better! What do you have on your face?

  • Kayla

    Damn I’m supposed to be on a no buy right now. But into my shopping cart this goes. Oopsies.

  • diane

    i got the mini one in that set of 2 for $10 this formula is incredible! i’ve been wearing it at night too. it’s helping my chapped lips tremendously! I want them all because the beach themed packaging is the best ever!

  • Amber

    I bought all of these and they are supposed to get here today. I did see some bad reviews but I took a chance because I love balms and tints way more than lipsticks too! I can’t wait to try them and they really look great on! I bought the mini set too to give my daughter the nude mini one and try one of the lipsticks. Thank you for the review! I have a feeling I made the right choice! 🙂

    • Isabella Muse

      Oh no really? I have to say I love them! They are so soft and melty! I hope you like Amber! Let met know what you think!

  • Ashley

    these look amazing! Never tried anything from Tarte before! Maybe now is the time…cute packaging love it!

  • Dee

    I want all of them! The berry reminds me of Clinique ‘s Black Honey.

  • Heidi

    Are they sweet and minty like the matte Tarte pencils? Usually I don’t like too minty in a lip product, but I do like how those taste and feel.
    I want these. The packaging is so damn cute and I like the wash of color.

    • Isabella Muse

      same taste and flavor as the pencils, sweet, minty flavor 🙂

  • Galaxia

    I really liked the one I got, too! A little pricey, but since I’m so picky about my lippies, I might end up getting more :X

  • Butterdaisy

    All man, I really wanted these but the peppermint flavor and scent kills it for me. So glad you reviewed these. Thanks!

    I just got the mini size in nude, along with a mini quench lipstick and i am in love! My lips got crazy chapped for the first time in my life this winter, to the point where i cant wear lipstick anymore! Its so depressing as im never seen without lipstick, its kinda my thing! I decided to lift my spirits by trying a bunch of tinted balms from sephora and so far this is my favorite! The texture of this is just amazing, and it has way more pigment to it then i thought it would. Ive already ordered the deepest shade and plan on collecting all of them!
