I’m a big fan of Tarte products. I happen to have deep affections for their 12-hour Amazonian clay blushes. I own 3 shades, but in my dream world I would own 10.
I stumbled across their Amazonian Butter lipstick on Sephora.com. I went to the store to see if I could swatch some out and try them on, but no stores carried these lipsticks.
So after much deliberation, I picked out the Watermelon shade and ordered it online.
Ordering lipstick online is like ordering jeans online. It’s the kind of product that you really need to try on, you know what I mean?
But I thought, “Tarte knows what’s up. I bet I’ll love this lipstick.”
And that ended up being the case.
The texture is light and creamy. It’s almost more along the lines of a gel-like feeling instead of a thick creamy lipstick. It’s buildable and wears really nicely. And the shine? Over the top.
Beyond the fact that the lipstick is nearly flawless, the packaging is just about the cutest thing I ever seen, am I right?
