News of a new lipstain always piques my interest; I love the idea of low-maintenance lipcolor. So when I heard Tarte had a new “moisturizing” lipstain out, I was definitely curious.
Now that I’ve swatched them, I’m not sure I would have called these lipstains. The oversized, twist-up crayons are glossy and slightly staining — I was actually most reminded of Lipstick Queen’s Chinatown Glossy Pencils.
The chief moisturizing ingredient is a proprietary molecule called LipSurgenceâ„¢ Technology. The stains also contain vitamins C and E, jojoba seed oil, and peppermint oil.
The stains are $24 each, and for now, Sephora has the exclusive. Â These are paraben-free, natural, and not tested on animals.
