I finally got to try out the highly anticipated “Lip Paints” from Tarte Cosmetics. I love the fact that the brand is trying to cater to different skin complexions by creating a wide range of nude lip colors. All the shades are absolutely beautiful but to my surprise, the quality of each color differentiates so much from one another!
The nude shades are all really beautiful. They all offer a matte finish and last quite long (about 5 hours). I find the nudes less drying compared to the rest, maybe it has to do with the amount of pigmentation in them, I’m not sure. They go on nicely and the brush is great, it allows you to fill in your lips precisely without the use of a lip liner.

I like these shades as much as I like the nudes. Mainly because these go better with my collection, some of the nudes may be a bit too light for me personally. I like how light weighted these shades are, a single layer goes a long way and they last literally all day. The brown shade, #fortune tends to be a bit patchy sometimes however it doesn’t look very obvious on the lips, just make sure to apply a double layer.
SHOP BROWN LIP PAINTS
My favorite shades from the reds are #vibin and #killin’it my least favorite shades were #acid and #frenemy. The quality is very disappointing compared to the rest of the collection. The texture is very drying and the pigmentation is extremely patchy & uneven and the brush is difficult to work with. I do like the other two shades (#vibin and #killin’it) and I wear the regularly. If you wear the lip paints for too long they tend to dry out the lips a bit. I noticed that it’s less drying if I remove the lipstick and apply it again instead of applying a lip balm on top. The pigmentation is great and they feel light weighted on the lips.
