Getting Pink with Tarte

I love January – not for the weather, not for the fact that my bank account is scary because of the expenses the holidays bring – I love it for the SALES! If you aren’t looking for anything in particular then mid-late January can be a savings gold mine as the stores start trying to unload stuff to get ready for the new season.

Jill and I were out shopping after the holidays and picked up a sale kit of Tarte’s LipSurgence Lip Tint in Energy and Deluke Cheek Stain in Energy.


LipSurgence Skintuitive Lip Tint in Energy

According to Tarte

  • the newest shade addition to the award-winning and best-selling franchise of LipSurgence™ lip tints. This skintuitive™ formula responds to your skin’s natural pH and energy, giving you a personalized tint that is truly your own unique shade of pink.

According to me

  • Smashbox has a similar lip gloss however I have to say that I think Tarte’s lip tint blows it out of the water
  • Goes on very smooth and is not drying to the lips
  • Such a nice natural color – great for every day


Deluxe cheek stain in energy

According to Tarte

  • A cheek stain that responds to the skin’s natural pH for a truly customized complexion anytime, anywhere.

According to me

  • Again Smashbox has their O’Glow – but this from Tarte is so very much better
  • Don’t be alarmed at how bright it seems at first touch – once you blend (use your fingers) it’s such a natural flush you will never need to return to your old blushes
  • Great product and perfect to toss in your makeup bag and touch up throughout the day
