I was able to pick up two of the new Tarteist Lip Paint lipsticks from Tarte. These are supposed to be an ultra pigmented, matte lipstick that’s long-wearing. The two shades that I bought, Yaassss and Frenemy, are ultra pigmented and semi-matte but they do not dry down fully like most liquid lipsticks. They transfer quite a bit but they do not lose the intensity of the color on the lips, which is a good thing. The formula is mousse-like and has a light minty scent which fades pretty quickly while wearing the lipstick. It is enriched with soothing minerals to soften and nourish the lips.
I love the two shades I purchased and may pick up 1 or 2 others. I appreciate how these make my lips look moist rather than super dry like many matte liquid lipsticks. It really is a personal choice. You can also reapply the color without looking cakey.
