Tarte for True Blood Collector's LipSurgence Natural Lip Tint Review
Continuing with our Tarte for True Blood Collection we have the LipSurgence Lip Tint. A yummy glossy red to give lips that 'just bitten' look. Just the right amount of color and shine without being vampy. I know what you're thinking, but Corinne, True Blood is all about Vampires! Yes duckies I know, but True Blood is all about Sookie too and I'm glad Tarte remembered that when making this collection.
Don't get me wrong I adore my deep vampy shades that require extra precise care during application but that's just not practical for an every day working woman. Like Sookie. Sookie is all about natural and minimalism. She enhances what nature and her Faerie blood have given her. Sookie is about subtle.
Don't get me wrong you could layer this on to get a deep 'Pam working the bar at Fangtasia' kinda look but why bother. This lip crayon is a dream to wear as is. Quickly applied and then smoosh your lips together. You'll smell and feel the mint in the lip tint working right away to slightly plump and moisturize your lips. You also won't have any issue layering this or have any settling into lines. It's creamy and perfect in every way. I'm convinced it improves my lips when I wear it. They seem less dry and cracked. Super bonus!
I swatched it heavy on the left and one swipe on the right to show the difference. It doesn't look as good on my hand as it does on my lips below, however you can see how as it builds it just gets better. If you like good natural enhancing colors then pick this one up. You won't be disappointed. And who knows maybe a certain sexy vamp, were, or shifter will show up on your door step to...
The entire Tarte for True Blood collection is Limited Edition as well as a Collector's piece. It's available online at Tarte Cosmetics, Sephora, and Ulta as well as in stores at Sephora and Ulta.
