4 stars out of 5

Tarte Sugar Rush Lip Sip Vegan Lip Oil ($15) is a new hydrating lip oil created with jojoba, hazel, and sunflower seed that’s available in three shade selections. I admit I was a little skeptical of the entire Tarte Sugar Rush Collection but so far, they’ve been surprising me with some of their offerings!

Lip oil is a tricky business in my opinion! We’ve seen many here on Musings of a Muse from Milani, E.L.F., Burt’s Bees, Kiko, and many, many other brands. Some brands get the formula right, some just sort of creating a lightweight lipgloss of sorts.

Tarte seems to have gotten it right with Sugar Rush Lip Sip Vegan Lip Oil!

Tarte Sugar Rush Lip Sip Vegan Lip Oil is available in a full-size 0.1 oz size or you can snag a mini version like I did which is 0.05 oz. As you know Tarte has mini sizes of almost the entire Sugar Rush Collection available and priced at a very affordable 5 for $25. It’s a pretty nice way to give the brand a little test to see if you actually need to wade in and try the brand out.

The lip oil is pretty brilliant. It’s a gel-like serum texture that has a glossy finish on lips. According to Tarte it has a raspberry sugar cookie flavor which instantly reminded me of my favorite cookie in the entire universe Knott’s Berry Farm Raspberry Shortbread. I don’t get the cookie aspect but the sweet jammy raspberry I do! It’s quite delicious tasting! But not a great pick if you’re a sensitive user.

I liked the texture of this formula a lot. It applies evenly on my lips and hugs them in a very nice hydrating layer with a glossy, shiny look and finish. I got the shade Fresh Pressed so you aren’t getting any color with this particularly color but there other shades available which will likely give you a little hint of tint. I’m cool with the clear version but after I use this little mini up I’m going to check out the cherry shade as I do like a little bit of tint on my lips!

This formula wears for about two hours but it does keep my lips feeling quite hydrating through the wear! It’s one of the nicer lip oils I’ve tried as many are more of a sheerer gloss formula and don’t provide a ton of moisture. This isn’t intensely hydrating by any means but it does sooth and soften my super dry lips.

All in all, Tarte Sugar Rush Lip Sip Vegan Lip Oil is pretty darn nice!

Tarte Sugar Rush Lip Sip Vegan Lip Oil is available now.

Where to buy

Tarte Ulta

Tarte Tarte Sugar Rush Lip Sip Vegan Lip Oil is a new raspberry cookie flavored lip oil available in three shade selections. I loved this formula! It has a gel-like serum texture that applies smooth and evenly on my drier lips. It has a glossy finish and wears for about two hours before reapplication is necessary. It feels quite hydrating through the wear and left my lips feeling soft and smooth after it wore away!


  • Pretty glossy finish!

  • Very nicely hydrating plus softens and smooths lips well after wearing away!


  • Flavor and fragrance might be an issue for sensitive users.

    I got this French Pressed mini after seeing it in one of Kathleen Light’s vids. It’s really nice. I def want to try the color ones now.

    This stuff is perm, right? Just got the watermelon slice palette for a l.g. who is turning 10. She likes seltzer water, so maybe she’s mature enough not to mess it up. That would be good for her, too.

    Ooo, I love Knott’s Berry Farm Raspberry Shortbread too! Maybe that’s why I got obsessed with this lip oil ;D I tried the mini lip oil, was also surprised about the taste and smell and how good it felt on my lips, so I bought every color during the F & F sale today.

    I’m probably super late to this party but just in case you haven’t tried the tarte sugar rush lip oil in cherry slush….

    Don’t expect a tint whatsoever. Lol. This was perhaps most disappointing along with the slick unpleasant coating that it left if a tiny bit got in my mouth…it went away within a few min thank God cause had it not; it would put me off totally. But I was really hoping for and expecting a little bit of a tint based on the reviews and the description on the website as well as the beautiful bright color in the bottle…

    Nope. That gorgeous watercolor sheer poppy red is purely superficial. And I can say this with full confidence that no one else will have different results because I’m so fair its sad. My level of pigment lacking white is transparent. Im see thru. Pale lips. No color in my cheeks. I have to paint the look of breathing on my face when I apply makeup. It dont get much more tragic than this.

    Love your blog, jealous of your European childhood (from someone who was raised and lives in Basic Boring America; devoid of culture and food with fresh quality ingredients …im dying to go to Europe ) annnnddd i hope this helps or at least makes you giggle ! 🙂
