Tarte The Lip Sculptor Lipstick & Lipgloss Giveaway Review & Swatches

In my humble opinion, the makeup collection that Tarte put together for ULTA was MUCH BETTER than the one they did for Sephora. They were like night & day in terms of quality. Today I have Tarte's Lip Sculptor Lipstick & Lipgloss (one end is lipstick and the other end is lipgloss). These are a stark contrast to those Sea Drench Lipsticks I reviewed for you last time. I went into ULTA to see them and wasn't expecting much. I swatched these babies and was like OMG'D! Everything was on point! The PIGMENTATION was great! The lipsticks were MOISTURIZING! They were HYDRATING! They gave off a nice SHINE, were CREAMY and glided on SMOOTHLY (on the back of my hand)! So I immediately thought, the lip-gloss end must have problems. LOL NOT THE CASE AT ALL! They're equally as pigmented. They can be worn alone OR as a topper over the lipstick. The lip-glosses give HIGH SHINE to your lips, without being excessively sticky (there is some stick, but nothing bothersome). These lip sculptors are superb! Even the packaging feels chic and sophisticated. I purchased SEVEN out of the EIGHT colors offered, when ULTA had their 20% off sale. Somehow I ordered an extra Harlequin, therefore I'm giving the extra to one lucky reader of A Very Sweet Blog. Use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter, and as always this giveaway is open WORLDWIDE.

  5. How interesting that the products for two different stores could be so, well, different! These lipsticks do look wonderful - the colours are perfect and the finish is exactly what I would want. I'll have to stop by Ulta next time I'm south of the border!

  9. Kim, you look so great in all the shades! No wonder they got "super sweet":) I don't like sticky glosses, so it's good to know these are not.

  10. The packaging is gorgeous but the formulation sounds great and the colors are outstanding! I can totally see why you're such a fan of these lippies. I usually avoid lip gloss because of the stick factor but I should check these out.

  11. All of these are so pretty! I don't think there's one color you got that I wouldn't wear. I must go swatch these!

  12. All these colors are beautiful Kim! You look stunning in all of them. I can tell these colors are much nicer than the ones from Sephora! I was actually in Sephora yesterday and I picked up one of the lipsticks, and you were so right on how cheap he packaging felt! I'm glad you are enjoying these ones a lot more!

  13. Gosh, you look amazing in all the shades, Kim! I wonder why the quality is so different from the ones with Sephora but nevertheless, thank goodness this is better! And thank you for another great giveaway, Kim! xx

  14. Nice! It's good to know that it's not overly sticky. I like lip gloss, but the overly sticky ones drive me crazy. I love the color on these too!

  15. I LOVE the colours! Also I think the packaging is absolutely gorgeous. x

  16. I am happy to hear that these are not too sticky, that's sort of the main reason why I went to wearing lipstick mostly. I like the colours in this range. Very interesting and a pity about the huge quality differences between Ulta and Sephora with Tarte though. Thanks for sharing Kim. <3

  17. I Love Tarte because they really put in a lot of effort into their products. I also enjoy how creative they are with everything from the packaging on out. You always get your moneys worth which is ultimately all that matters. Love this review I didn't know about these new lippies until this post. You always keep me updated on the latest beauty products!

  20. Ooh thanks for the review! This looks like an awesome set! I hadn't known much about Tarte before your reviews. I'm definitely on it for their next friends and family deal. I love sass and voltage on you!

  21. The packaging is very nice. The shades are so pretty. The shades looks great on you.

  22. Wow! I like every single one of these, although my least favourite would be Voltage, as I don't like shades that are too light. This one is borderline. I loved Intoxicating, Renegade, and Harlequin on you. So lovely!

  23. I love the one before the last one, Kim! And I like how you add the D to OMG. LOL!

  24. Oooh so many fabulous hues VIP looks cute but Renegade looks like a good time!

  26. That's so weird that the two collections are so different in quality, I wonder why that is and I actually would've thought that Sephora's would be better! Anyway, the collection sounds and looks amazing, all colors look fab on you! I know you don't rank Supersweet very often, so this collection has to be amazing! Thanks so much for sharing, gorgeous, and I hope you're having a great day so far!

  27. Hello dear Kim, how are you? I popped by to browse your archives, you're my beauty encyclopaedia you know. These lipsticks look great on you!! They look so smooth and rich, and the darkest shade of red is a blast, something unique. I always look up to your beauty reviews, but I've still so much to learn!

    Hope you are well sweet Kim. The spring weather is not quite here in Denmark yet, guess it is cold up north ;-)
