Beauty Test Drive: Tarte Lip Stain

By: Lily Q / June 29, 2010

At first swipe, we had high hopes for Tarte’s Natural Lip Stain. Lust, the color we tested, had an appropriately sultry name and glided on with a practiced sort of ease, moisturizing as it went. Unfortunately, the honeymoon period soon disappeared and we were left with nothing but faint vestiges of the relationship we’d begun a mere hour before. If you want really expensive pigmented Chapstick, this is the product for you, but don’t get into the relationship looking for it to last. [$24, Tarte, Sephora]
