Review Overview

This chunky, twist-up lip pencil doesn't need routine sharpening, which is always a plus. The pencil tip is large enough to quickly color the lips, and you'll get sheer, creamy color that leaves a soft gloss finish. Packaging and performance aren't the issue here, it's the formula itself. Just like other LipSurgence products from Tarte, this contains peppermint oil. The irritation this oil causes can lead to chapped lips and other problems. Given the number of sheer, glossy lip tints that omit irritants, there's no reason to settle for one that presents this risk (and costs a lot, too).

Tarte Cosmetics At-A-Glance

Strengths: Excellent foundations; great cheek stain and powder blushes; superior pressed powder and eyelining pencils; good mascaras; unique, innovative, beautiful packaging; complete ingredient lists on the company's Web site.

Weaknesses: Can be pricey.

Tarte Cosmetics CEO and founder Maureen Kelly started Tarte in 1999, out of a desire to create a cosmetics line that “would prove that glamour can be good for you.” This comes in the form of products that highlight naturally-derived ingredients in their marketing campaigns, and occasionally taking swipes at the concept of synthetics in makeup.

This is ironic, as Tarte uses more than a few beneficial synthetically derived ingredients in their formulas—silicones, synthetic fragrances, preservatives and on and on. However, we’ll forgive them that as what’s ultimately important is whether their products meet your needs, and to that we can say the brand excels in many areas at what they do.

However, a few products are a bit on the pricey side and there are a few iffy shades and textures to consider among their foundations—noted in their respective reviews. A few caveats aside, most of Tarte's foundations, blush options, eye pencils and an ever-expanding range of innovative products demonstrate that color is what they do best.

Drying

I bought this in "fever". I should have known better and read reviews before purchasing this. Very drying just after the first use! I was expecting bright red but came out on me as a pinkish red hue. Complete waste of money.
