What the brand says
Tarte have teamed up with Youtube sensation Grav3yardgirl to create two exclusive shades of long lasting lip paint. The two features shades include a everyday greige and Grave3yardgirl inspired bold red.
During my recent Tarte haul I picked up Swamp Family, a lovely mid red shade. Whilst the formula has been designed to have a smooth creamy mousse formula, I did feel it was quite thick and gloopy.
The Lip paint is smooth and easy to apply and had really strong pigment. Unlike some Lip products which are a little patchy and take a while to build up to full coverage, this was pretty much instant. The colour isn’t as bold as I’ve had imagined and is more of a neutral red. I noticed that it had a bit of a strange smell – like a off mint. The finish is matte and it wasn’t overly drying.
Most of the lipstick had pretty much faded after a few hours and it was only the outline that remained. After eating and drinking the lip paint faded a lot quicker which I was quite disappointed with.
Whilst Swamp Family is a lovely shade of red, I felt the smell was a bit off putting and for a matte lip stick it certainly could have lasted longer.
I give it 2/5
