Tarte Maracuja Divine Shine Lip Gloss

New from Tarte for spring 2012 are Maracuja Divine Shine Lip Glosses. And they come in the prettiest tube eva!

These glosses are infused with maracuja oil which helps reduce redness and irritation in the skin. They are have Vitamin E & A to help moisturize lips. They are pretty shiny and have a peppermint scent and (slight) taste.

There are 10 colors in total which include Adored (cotton candy), Dollface (pink grapefruit), Charmed (pale pink), Amused (hot pink), Blissful (warm peach), Glisten (peachy nude), Tipsy (coral), Blushing Bride (plummy rose), Flush (berry) and Natural Beauty (cherry red).

They come in a tube where you have to click the bottom about 27 million times before the product starts to flow. Kind of a pain at first but after the one time they’re easy to get out. The applicator is a soft synthetic brush.

Dollface, Glisten, Tipsy, Amused, Flush, Natural Beauty

Dollface is a very pale pink on me, with a whiteish tone to it. It settled into the lines in my lips, which isn’t my favorite thing on earth.

Glisten is a pretty pale peach, but again it settled into the lines. Not as bad though.

Tipsy is a very nice shimmery warm peach and one of my favorite ones.

Amused is a fun bright pink. Even though it settled into the lines also, I really love this pink on me.

Flush is a very flattering medium plum color.

Natural Beauty is a subdued cherry red. I hard a hard time getting this one even on my lips, just didn’t want to work with me.

Overall:

I like these but don’t love them. Some of the brush wands were a little weird. One was super stiff, and one was completely curved. I think a little fine tuning could be done there. I liked all the shimmery colors a lot, but the other ones settled into my lips lines too much for my taste.

Availability: Tarte.

Pricing: $21.00 for 0.12 oz.

What do you think about these? Any you might be picking up?
