Tarte has issued a fascinating follow-up to their Natural Lip Stain (the moisturizing glossy lip crayons): Natural MATTE Lip Stains.
Like the original Natural Lip Stains, the Matte lipstains are chubby pencils, infused with moisturizing “LipSurgence” technology, vitamins C and E, jojoba seed oil, and peppermint oil. They contain no parabens, petrolatum, pthalates, mineral oil, sodium lauryl sulfate, or synthetic dyes or fragrances. (They smell like mint.)
It’s tricky to create a product that’s both matte and moisturizing (especially when you’re doing it without petrolatum), and on top of it all, the Matte stains are really lightweight.
The only thing I don’t get is that these don’t seem particularly staining. Have you tried them (or their glossy counterparts)? Â Are they long-wear?
Both versions are $24 each.
