Tarte LipSurgence Lip Gloss Review and Swatches

Tarte LipSurgence Lip Gloss Swatches

I am a lip gloss fanatic.  I tend to wear lip gloss much more often than a do lipstick because of the ease of application.  I am loving that Tarte Cosmetics has added to the LipSurgence line with Lip Gloss.  Tarte coordinated all of the shades with their cheek stains and blushes (as well as other lip products).  They even have one that has special packaging to match their Park Avenue Princess bronzer.  The Tarte LipSurgence Lip Gloss line has all the beautiful color of a lip tint with plumping power!  It also contains some amazing ingredients like vitamin E, jojoba seed oil and flower extract to moisturize dry lips and smooth fine lines.

The wands are special ergonomically shaped doe foot applicators that make it super easy to get a precise application every time!  I noticed that it also grabs a good amount of gloss so you wont even need to double dip to apply the perfect amount of gloss.  That isn’t their claim, that is mine! :)  On a scale from 1-10 in stickiness (10 being MAC Lipglass and 0 being lip balm) these are around a 5.  Some stickiness but not enough to bother you or get a ton of hair stuck on your lips if the wind blows.  They claim to brighten and I feel like they do.  They also create a beautiful shine!

Park Avenue Princess is the one with specially marked packaging.  It coordinates with my very first product from the brand, the Park Avenue Princess Bronzer.  I have had several of those bronzers over the years and I still love it! It is a neutral shade with gold sparkles.

Exposed is my favorite blush from the brand.  It is a rosy neutral shade with no sparkles.  This will be my everyday go-to gloss.

Blushing Bride is a mauve-pink shade.  Another pretty go-to.

Blissful is a pretty peachy shade.  Perfect for the warmer weather months.

Tipsy is a sheer coral, I have been thinking of purchasing the matching blush for months now.  Time to pull that trigger!

Fearless is a pink coral with sparkles.

Flush is a berry rose shade.

Natural Beauty is a sheer shimmering red.

And the winner of pigmentation goes to True Love.  It is a watermelon shade that is the prettiest red gloss I think I have ever laid my eyes on.

Because my lips are really pigmented I want to show you an arm swatch to get a better visual of the shade selection.  My lips are naturally mauve, and though that seems like a light enough shade they always shine through whatever lip product I am wearing.

Tarte LipSurgence Lip Gloss swatches

The Tarte LipSurgence Lip Glosses are fabulous.  If you didnt notice, some of the pictures look more plump than others… that is because I did a swatch-a-thon and my lips went from regular to VOLUPTUOUS after applying all of these and taking them off.  The ones that look less full are obviously the ones that I did first.  Seriously a nice plumper without the sting.  I did feel a bit of numbing though.  With the plumpness I notice my lips look smoother and the shine is perfect!  I love these glosses!

    pretty! I need to check out the ingredient list. I received one of the LipSurgence lip crayons and was super-excited. But then I discovered it had the dreaded peppermint oil that dries out my lips so I can’t use it…or the lovely Tarte Amazonian butter Lipstick I bought, boo hoo. I still love Tarte, just wish they’d lose the peppermint oil ;)

    I prefer a little more pigment, a little less shine, but True Love is a pretty gloss.

    • http://www.mynewestaddiction.com/ Laura

      The pigment is there. My lips just have strong coloring.

      No problem. I love them all!

  • http://theblackmentosbeautybox.blogspot.com/ Sharlynn

    These are lovely! I really love the neutral shades like exposed and park avenue princess! The berry shades are beautiful too! Your lips must be very pigmented as a lot of them look similar on your lips, or is it the lighting?

    • http://mynewestaddiction.com MyNewestAddiction

      My lips always are fairly strong and hold their own under shades. They are a mauve shade naturally but they shine through always!

    • http://www.mynewestaddiction.com/ Laura

      My lips are a natural mauve shade and though that doesnt seem very strong a shade they always shine through whatever I am wearing. They really are pretty pigmented though. I promise

  • Char Heppel

    Really pretty! I didn’t realize they were so glossy. They all look very wearable.

    • http://www.mynewestaddiction.com/ Laura

    These are so pretty! Great swatches!

  • Katrina

    Exposed looks perfect for my skin tone! Do they get sticky after a while, or do they always stay silky? I have problems with a lot of glosses that tend to feel sticky after a while.

  • myCosmeticBag
