You guys know how much I love a good liquid matte lipstick… in fact, I thought I had found my two go-to brands where this product is concerned (Kat Von D and Lime Crime) but I’m so happy to have just discovered one of the most gorgeous, long-lasting matte lipsticks on the market…
Okay, I’ll stop teasing you know – I’m talking about the Tarte Quick Dry Lip Paint in ‘OG’… which I can’t stop wearing!
This shade is a GORGEOUS stone grey-pink colour – the perfect choice for light skin tones but just as complimentary on dark skin, I would imagine.
The two images in this blog post really highlight how different this lipstick can appear in bright and natural lighting – the first image (brighter) is definitely a more accurate representation of the flattering stoney-grey colour.
The liquid lipstick pigmentation itself is really creamy and soft; when applied with the wand, only a minimal amount of product is required to make a strong impact, so don’t be scared by the lack of formulation on the wand when you first remove it from the tube.
Upon first application at 6am in the morning, I hadn’t realised I would have one of the busiest days and wouldn’t be able to stop to reapply my lipstick until I got home…
Low and behold, when I arrived home and glanced at the mirror come 5pm (after breakfast, numerous teas, lunch and the daily wear-and-tear of the working day) it STILL looked just as gorgeous.
So, it goes without saying that I’m desperate to order more Tarte lipsticks but as you know, it is a little hard to secure in the UK (besides the odd find on QVC) so I’ll be purchasing another haul soon directly from the website.
In the meantime, I have another two Tarte products to test and review for your guys, so stay tuned!
