Fall Lipstick Loves: Tarte Cosmetics
I am a huge fan of Tarte Cosmetics, primarily for their cruelty free policy (no animal testing!) as well as their commitment to formulate quality beauty products free of: parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan and even gluten.
Most recently I decided to take the plunge and test their Glamazon™ Pure Performance 12-hour Lipstick. I chose the limited edition coral hue by Aqualillies for Tarte called "timeless" and their bright pink hue called "whimsy". You can see both on my blog under my Fashion post category.
I have to give this long-wearing lipstick TOP MARKS. Not quite matte but not shiny either, the pigments are fully opaque and apply smooth and creamy without any gooey after-texture. The clay-infused formula stays put, and according to Tarte the secret to this is that "a unique blend of emollient-rich butters (mango, avocado and shea) is encapsulated in this Tarte 12-hour power™ formula to achieve rich, vivid, and long-wearing color that applies smoothly and won’t fade away."
Tarte recently released this new palette of hues for fall 2014: Playful (purple rose), Fierce (bright red), and Foxy (deep pink). If you are looking for a high performance, long wearing, creamy lipstick this fall, I can highly recommend this brand and these lip products.* Each .07 oz tube retails for $16.
