Tarte

High Performance Naturals


"One lipstick is more than enough " says no girl EVER and it is for this very reason, my lipstick collection increases every month. *yes, I'm guilty as charged* 
Are you intrigued by these swatches?
Read on to find out more!

There are a few things about Tarte Cosmetics that keep me wanting more after every purchase. Although it does not surprise me, here's why Tarte is one of my favourite brand


  • Cruelty-Free
Tarte is a brand that practices cruelty-free methods in terms of product manufacturing and handling. It is also vegan friendly. I've never really mentioned this anywhere but I have personally stopped or at least as much as I can, to stop buying or supporting products that test on animals. So, I don't buy products that I know do test on animals. As for the ones that I bought in the past, I have no choice but to just finish it and stop repurchasing.
  • Scent
 I really like their lip products for the fact that it smells really good. Their lip products has a minty scent , more like Mentholatum and upon application it is has a light cooling sensation. So that is definitely another plus point.
  • Packaging
 We cannot deny that Tarte always amazes us with really pretty packaging. They have both colorful and classy packaging which is what makes the first impressions count.
  • Ingredients 
All Tarte Cosmetics products are formulated without 
parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, triclosan, sodium lauryl sulfate and gluten.

Tarte was very sweet to send me a few lip products to try, swatch and review. At the end of a whole week of trying, I can say that Tarte impresses me every time, without fail!

p/s- Although all products in this post are sponsored, I have swatched it, tried it and wore it out for the past couple of weeks prior to this post. Sponsored products does not influence the honesty of this review. 


Let's get to the products, shall we?


Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick 


Inspired by the whimsical colors of the Amazon and infused with naturally-derived ingredients from its lush vegetation, these Amazonian butter lipsticks add a splash of rich color and creamy shine for a perfect pout

Priced at RM64, this Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick is available at Sephora Stores and Sephora Online. The shade that I reviewed was Watermelon. They have six shades available here in Malaysia which are Angelic Nude, Pink Peony, Coral Blossom, Watermelon, Tulip and Plummy Rose. Each dermatology tested shade is 0.10 oz.
A first impression of the product without swatching would be the beautiful packaging. The color and pattern on each packaging varies from one another but it still has the whimsical look to it. It would make a great collectors item! I know my collection of these has begun! What is great about this product is that it has all the ingredients to give you both shine and moisture. The Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick is rich with murumuru butter, cupuacu butter, shea butter, jojoba seed oil and vitamin E. With all these together in one lipstick, you'll be able to achieve that pouty lips while maintaining moisture, giving it that hint of color and a little bit of shine. 
You get the perfect shine and color with just two layers of application
The product is easy to apply and smooth upon application. One layer gives you that light lip balm effect with a light layer of color but two layers of application would be perfect. Because this Amazonian Butter Lipstick is rich is Vitamin A, E, shea butter as well as other moisturizing ingredients, it does not dry out the lips even after a few hours of application. A light reapplication might be necessary after meals because it is no. Overall, I really like this product. I have been using it to work on a daily basis. I guess this happens a lot when you have new lipsticks to play with and you immediately fall in love with it.

Tarte LipSurgence Matte Lip Tint

This top seller is a three-in-one lip tint that offers the pigmented performance of a lipstick and the creamy moisture of a gloss and a rich balm. Infused with skinvigorating™ additives like vitamins C and E, this nourishing formula moisturizes and smooths lips while it delivers natural-looking color for a soft, matte finish. Just twist up its automatic pencil tip and glide it onto the lips to get the ultimate matte lip look.



Priced at RM94, this Tarte LipSurgence Matte Lip Tint is available at Sephora Stores and Sephora Online. The shade that I reviewed was in the shade Tempted. They have seven shades available here in Malaysia which are Hope , Lucky, Bare, Lively, Tempted, Fiery and Evny. Each dermatology tested shade is 0.10 oz.

The color on its own its very pretty. It suits pretty much most skin tones, so, anyone will be able to pull it off. Plum colored matte lip tint is perfect for day or night. Its ingredients including coconut extract functions to moisturize lips and to avoid chap lips. It lasts about three to four hours even without a lip liner.

Using a lip liner underneath this product would be a better option to achieve that fuller lips effect and for a more even application
This Tarte LipSurgence Matte Lip Tint is pretty much what its name is. It is a Lip Tint that is not opaque but not sheer as well. It is matte and easy to apply. However, I would have preferred it to be a little more opaque than it already it. The product is pigmented but it upon it's first application, it came off a little patchy and uneven. I would suggest using a lip liner underneath this product to give it that fuller lips effect and for a more even application.


Tarte Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint

Paint on pigment to create a chic lip masterpiece with this creamy, matte liquid lipstick. Designed for styles ranging from modern minimalist to bold and dramatic, this high-definition, saturated formula starts as a traditional lipstick that’s been liquefied and concentrated, resulting in a luxurious, velvety texture. A custom wand with an ergonomically slanted applicator makes painting on pigment easy for any skill level.


Priced at RM83, this Tarte Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint is available at Sephora Stores and Sephora Online. The shade that I reviewed was in the shade Twerk. They have ten shades available here in Malaysia which are Yaassss, Frenemy, Adorbs, So Fetch, Lovespell, Bae, Hnagry, Namaste, Twerk and TBT. Each dermatology tested shade is 0.20 oz.

This is my favourite among all four lip products that I have tried and reviewed. It is medium-dark berry color with hints of fuchsia tones. It's satin but slightly matte finish allows the lip color to go one very well even with one application. The color is very pigmented and opaque. It has a flat Doe-Foot Wand and can make application less messy as it only carries a small amount of product at a time and you are able to spread the product evenly.It is very lightweight and you sometimes almost forget that you are wearing any lip product. It does not end up being cakes even after reapplication of the product. it is not transfer proof  so you might see stains on your straw or mug

I personally feel that this color suit most skin tones as well because it brightens your face. You do not need a full face make up to be able to pull this off. In terms of how long it lasts, I would say, that it is more lasting, up to five hours before your next application but depends if you're eating or drinking. It is not really a main factor as we usually touch up our make up after lunch or half a day.


Tarte Naughty Nudes Tarteist Lip Paint

Paint on pigment to create a tarteist™ lip masterpiece with these five naughty nudes for every mood. Available in trendy neutrals and bolder browns, this permanent nude lippie collection features the signature tarteist creamy matte formula for high-coverage color with a lightweight, non-drying finish. The lip paint delivers rich, smoothing pigment while helping to hydrate and soften thanks to ultra-concentrated, lip-loving™ mineral pigments. The paint brush wand shapes and contours in a simple stroke for on-trend looks with a minimalist tarteist pout.

Priced at RM75, this Tarte Naughty Nudes Tarteist Lip Paint is available at Sephora Stores and Sephora Online. The shade that I reviewed was in the shade Grunge. They have five shades available here in Malaysia which are Choker, Rave, Grunge, Crop Top and Brownie . Each dermatology tested shade is 0.20 oz.

This Tarte Naughty Nudes Tarteist Lip Paint has a deep muted red tone with brown warm undertones and a natural finish. This product has the same kind of flat doe-foot wand just like the Tarte Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint. It is easy to apply and goes on very smoothly. The lips look plumpy and soft. It does not dry out the lips as well and just like the previous lip paint, a reapplication after food will not make it cakey or cause chappy lips.
One application is all you need to get this intense grunge
This is the last product that I actually reviewed because I have never tried a color in this shade or tone before. Personally, I've always felt that nude tones do not really suit my skin color. Even with darker brown tones- It could be that I am not used to it. I am planning to use this during a night event and see how that wears out. This color payoff is very pigmented as well and I think it shows in the picture as well  Just as the other lip paint, it spreads easily across the lips.Overall, I envy girls you can pull it off! It is no doubt a pretty color but just not my favourite.

All in all.. 

All four products were amazing in their own way. I loved the packaging on the Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Watermelon, I loved the vampish feeling when I applied the Tarte Tarte LipSurgence Matte Lip Tint in Tempted. The Tarte Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint in Twerk brightened up my face and made me feel extra pretty & Tarte Naughty Nudes Tarteist Lip Paint in grunge made me believe that if I am confident enough to pull off a color that I am not used to.

And with that, I have come to an end with this review. I hope my detailed review helps when you're choosing your favourite Tarte products. 

All these products are available on Sephora Online-which is very convenient as upon placing an order, you will get your order within seven days- well from my experience at least and that is why I love shopping online!
