In 2016 I fell in love with Tarte Cosmetics, but the one product that I wasn’t in love with was their Lip Paint. It has a beautiful, light weight, whipped texture. It’s super pigmented and applies so smooth. But it is not transfer proof – and my standards for long wearing lipsticks are very high thanks for KVD. So when Tarte released their Quick Dry Lip Paints I was thrilled! You can read my review on the shade Bestie here. I received the shade Wannabe for Christmas.
This lipstick dries completely matte and it dries really fast. It applies smoothly and precisely with an angled brush that is cut to curve around your lip. Please excuse my horrid nails.
The colour is rich and it’s very long wearing; it doesn’t flake at all. This liquid lipstick doesn’t last through a meal quite as well as KVD but I’m still really happy with it. It can be a little drying like most liquid lipsticks, so investing in a lip scrub is a good idea. This dark brown colour is similar to Grunge from the Naughty Nudes Lip Paint collection if that was a colour you really liked. Because I’m fair skinned, this colour is great for creating dramatic, 90s grungy looks – perfect for fall.
