Tarte Gifts From The Lipstick Tree

Gifts From The Lipstick Tree Achiote Color Collection is a new kit from Tarte featuring three items in one new shade: Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush, LipSurgence Natural Lip Luster and Maracuja Divine Shine Lip Gloss.

The collection is based on the achiote tree which is found in the tropical regions of South America This tree is also known as mother nature’s lipstick tree because of the natural pigments produced from the seeds of the fruit it bears.

The shade we’re speaking of here is a shimmery golden pink. Universally flattering and super soft and feminine.

The LipSurgence Natural Lip Butter is one of those fabulous moisturizing crayon-like pencils I adore. This is a really pretty shade of shimmery pink/gold and I got really nice payoff with it.

The Maracuja Divine Shine Lip Gloss comes in a click-tube style applicator, which is my least favorite kind of gloss applicator. However the color is nice, but a wee bit sticky. It’s more sheer and a softer pink than the LipSurgence shade.

The Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush is a really nice warm pink matte. Great texture and good payoff.
