Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick Review and Swatches in Poppy, Tulip, Watermelon, Plummy Rose, Coral Blossom and Pink Peony

It was the packaging that first attracted me to Tarte's Amazonian Butter Lipsticks (not sponsored). I thought the prints on the lipstick cases were so pretty. What I was concerned about, was how the lipsticks performed? I've fallen victim to pretty packaging many times. So I decided to wait until Tarte had a sale. They had a really good one around the end of last year. So I was able to purchase an assortment of shades (shown below). Well I'm happy to tell you, the lipsticks are as great as the packaging. They're creamy. They're moisturizing. They apply very well, have staying power, feel good to the lips and give off just the right amount of shine. All the colors are very soft! There's nothing harsh or jarring about any of them. Even the reds and deeper tones are pleasant. My favorite shades are poppy, tulip and plummy rose. The only shade I didn't particularly care for on myself was coral blossom, but even it wasn't that bad. So don't be afraid to purchase these for yourself. The biggest decision you'll have to make is what color you want (currently there are 8 shades) or what color suits you. The quality of each is superb. Feel free to click on pictures to make larger. Have you tried their lipsticks?

  2. These all look so great on you Kim!
    I have plummy rose and it's one of my favorites.
    I agree that I wanted these for the packaging
    But they are too pretty to pass up!
    I didn't think the price was too bad on them!

  5. I like that pink peony one!

    I've never tried any of the tarte lipsticks, but if they are as good as their blushes, and as good as they sound, then they would be great!

    I took the plunge and got myself a red lipstick in the end and it isn't very moisturising, not ideal for winter. Lovely colour though haha.

  12. I think the packaging always catches my eye too, but sometimes, you are right, we shouldn't judge a book by its cover!!

    These ones look so so cute! I love the floral patterns!
    I am glad they are also good when you use them!!

    My favourite on you is the 'watermelon' colour!

  19. I'm really surprised how soft the lipsticks are on, considering how pigmented they look in the packaging. Since I love a bold lip, I'm not sure these would be for me - but they look lovely on you!
