For the second item in my Tarte for True Blood series ;) I have the LipSurgence Lip Tint in Red. You can check out the True Blood Palette swatches & Review here.
The description from the Tarte Website:
Experience love at first taste with tarte's LipSurgence™ natural lip tint, inspired by the hit HBO® series True Blood™. It's all flavor and no bite with this mint-infused, iridescent red shade that drenches lips in a luminous, long-lasting tint while tarte's LipSurgence™ technology rehydrates lips by delivering a surge of moisture for a deliciously plumped up appearance. Tune in to the new season of True Blood™, Sundays at 9/8c. Only on HBO®
I love how the lip tint feels on my lips. You can feel and smell the mint working, but not in a painful way like the Lip Venom from another brand. It definitely carries over a stain factor, so even when you eat and drink and this fades from your lips it'll still stick around. When that happens I like to revive with a clear lip balm (my fave is from Burts Bees!).
The Lip Tint leaves the lips feeling full, and hydrated while still looking glossy. I did find myself a bit disappointed that it wasn't a TRUE red tint on the lips. So many "red" tints go pink. This pink does have a reddish hue in it, and I do like it better than others I've tried.
The Tarte for True Blood LipSurgence Lip Tint retails for $24. It is limited edition, so get it while it's hot! You can pick this up at tartecosmetics.com, Ulta, and Sephora.
