Tarte Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint in 'Namaste' & Lip Crayon in 'Soho' - Swatches & Review | KMC Beauty




Tarteist Lip Liner 'Soho' & Lip Paint 'Namaste'


Super excited to write about my first two Tarte purchases on the blog, I have never tried any Tarte products before as they always seemed difficult to get hold of in the UK, I know QVC stock some bits but not any of the newer releases. I did also purchase the Rainforest of the Sea Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette when on Sephora but I am going to review that separately as I wanted to keep the two lip based items together.

Ever since L'Oreal discontinued my favourite Infallible Lip Liner I have been trying to find a similar everyday shade and I ended up choosing 'Boho' when looking through the Tarte colour options however I had no idea what it would look like when it arrived and also didn't know that it would be the perfect liner match for the Lip Paint I picked up in 'Namaste' they are literally identical and a match made in heaven. The liner itself glides on with maximum colour payoff, it is very soft and creamy and doesn't tug at my lips like I have experienced with other liners, it's creamy enough that you could wear the liner alone if you liked and your lips would not feel dry.

As with the liner when I added the Creamy Matte Lip Paint in the shade 'Namaste' to my basket I had no idea what the colour would be like when it arrived, I just took the plunge, however I am so happy with the shade, i've mentioned before but whenever I try a new brand or formula I always stick to nude shades to be safe and if I like them enough I will maybe expand my collection with the more bolder colours. The formula itself makes me want to describe it as a paste like texture, it's not completely smooth but it's not thick either it has a thin consistency that glides on the lips with minimum product required to get your desired opacity, a little goes a long way. The long and thin dofus applicator makes it easy to apply. Although the finish of this Lip Paint is matte, there is no shine what so ever, it is not matte to touch for at least the first 30 minutes, after this time I found that transfer was minimal and it was completely dry. My lips didn't feel dry or crack while wearing this product. Also there is a slight minty scent but it doesn't give my lips that cooling sensation.

I would definitely recommend both the Tarteist Liner range and the Lip Paints, I want more already.
