For my wedding I purchased a bunch of new cosmetics. This Tarte Cosmetics LipSurgence Natural Lip Stain being one of the items. I like how it feels and how it looks but I certainly wouldn’t call it a stain. Maybe it’s just too light to actually stain my lips, but when it wears off its off, there is no stain lingering on my lips. It’s also extremely soft. So much so that it breaks off. Summer heat does not help it. The first time I broke a chunk off was after my ceremony while we were taking a boat to the reception. At that point I figured it was just far too hot and it was melting. That wasn’t the case, it breaks all the time, so when I turn it up, I only do it just enough to smooth onto my lips and then roll it back down. Any extra means breakage and thus a complete waste of the product. I really like this as a tinted moisturizer for my lips and would consider buying it again since it’s insanely smoothing.
This lip stain contains:
jojoba seed oil
