Tarte Pure Delights Lipsurgence Lip Set for Holiday 2013

I love chubby sticks. They're so easy to apply, and they make me feel like I'm playing with crayons. 

The best part, though, of chubby sticks is the formula they have. Most of them have a very comfortable, weightless formula that's pleasant to wear.

Tarte Lipsurgences, I believe, are the first chubby sticks to hit the market. They're the first generation! I adore Tarte as a brand, and I believe that they have some great stuff, and this is definitely seen in their lipsurgences.

The Tarte Pure Delights set contains 8 mini-sized lipsurgences, of which 4 are matte shades, and 4 are glossy/shiny shades.

The shades are:

Matte lip tints:
  • Generous
  • Glee
  • Cheerful
  • Destined

Glossy lip tints:
  • Grateful
  • Lovely 
  • Believe
  • Enamored

They all have a minty smell and taste which isn't unpleasant - there's a little bit of tingling, so if you're allergic to smell or taste, you might want to test it out first.

The formula on these is lovely. Both the matte and glossy shades are a smooth, soft formula that glides onto your lips. The glossy shades are lightly moisturizing, while the matte shades are not; however the matte shades do not dry your lips out. I would recommend prepping lips before wear, just so that they sit easier and look better on lips.

The matte shades are definitely more pigmented than the glossy shades!

Cheerful is a pretty coral shade shade.
Glee is a pink watermelon shade. I love it!
Destined is a raspberry shade that has warm undertones.
Generous is a beige nude. This is the only shade I had to make work for me, it was a little too light.

Grateful is a nude shade that is very close to my skintone, however because it is sheer, it's very wearable.
Believe is a coral shade. I prefer this shade over the matte Cheerful, as it leans more orange than pink on me.
Lovely is a dusty rose. Gorgeous for a daily color!
Enamored is a cool red, but wearable for all skintones.

The lipsurgences last about 2-2.5 hours on me, and fade away evenly leaving a light tint (the intensity of the tint depends on the intensity of the color when first applied - darker colors leave deeper tints).

If you're new to Tarte and want to explore their products, or if you're new to lip products in general, this is a great set to start with. It has a variety of shades and finishes, ranging from lighter, everyday colors to deeper colors, with a formula that is easy to wear. 

Definitely something worth exploring this holiday!
