You know, I really should not tell you about items you can no longer get. More so when I dismantled the packaging, distributed most of the colours that came with it and only kept a couple for myself.
I really shouldn’t!
But heck, why not? 😛 Since this was limited edition for Christmas 2009 I’ll keep it brief.
These Tarte mini lipglosses are da bomb! I got a lovely friend to pick it up for me from the Sephora sale last year ostensibly for gifts. I hope the recipients enjoyed them as much as I did mine 😀
What I think I love most about these glosses are the size and the faint vanilla scent. They are the mini sized ones which are so perfect for toting around. I kept the brighter colours (because I knew my recipients aren’t that into bright lip shades) and they are surprisingly sheer on.
It comes with the regular doe foot applicator and applies very smooth. I did not find them drying and I love the shimmer and shine that it imparts on my lips.
Told you they were sheer! The gold one barely shows up except as shimmer but it looks quite lovely over other lipstick – adds a bit of punch.
I haven’t tried other glosses by Tarte, but if these are anything to go by, I’d love to give Tarte’s regular glosses a try.
Tarte isn’t available in Malaysia at time of writing but if you can get it from Sephora (USA) do 🙂
Have you tried any Tarte Cosmetics’ lipglosses that you could share your views on? I have a Tarte eyeshadow palette I keep wanting to write about but it seems to keep getting shoved away for something else. I should get down to it 😛
Featured item was part of a Tarte limited edition set for Christmas 2009 and I’m only writing about it now because I can! 😛
