Questions & Answers for Tarte LipSurgence™ Matte Lip Tint

Question
Dark hair, fair skin...what shade would be best?
The tarte beauty expert person recommended enchanted in the non-matte version of this product, and it's really a bit too bright for me. My lips are fairly dark naturally, and my boyfriend doesn't like nude lipstick on me for that reason, but I really would like to try this in nude. I'm uploading a picture of me with no makeup on for better reference. What do you think?

I say go for it. I have the Exposed and it's a bit darker than a nude on me (I'm medium skin-toned). I also have Envy, which is a great berry/brown color that is a bit darker than Exposed. I love both of them and use them almost every day. Good luck!

answer 4
I don't like the non-matte version of this for the very same reason. Envy and Hope really compliments your lips and isn't like Lucky (it's a bright pink color on your lips). I would still try Exposed (Nude) because with my lips, it doesn't look entirely nude on me, it looks a little bit towards warmer brown. Definitely go into Sephora and walk around with the colors on your lips.
P.S. Your BF would love these because they are kiss-proof!!!

I also have dark hair and fair skin. My lips are a natural slightly deep mauve-ish pink. I have the matte in Exposed (Nude). It is a tad lighter than my natural color, but it's not too bright for me. It does not feel particularly moisturizing and can accentuates dry areas, but I like it as a base because if its staying power. I use Korres Mango SPF 10 lipsticks over top and I love it! It wouldn't hurt to try because if you do not like it Sephora has free returns.

I tried Hope and it was so much lighter, brighter and pinker than I expected. If you want something darker or neutral, I would try Exposed. I haven't tried it but based on how bright pink Hope was, I assume this line runs light.

answer 10
If you're looking for nude... I'd try Lucky in the matte version or Joy in the creme version. They're not REALLY nudes, so i guess your boyfriend would be fine with them, but they're close enough that I think you'd like them. If you want matte lip color, lucky is a light pink and it can also be layered over balm to get a glossier look. It's a light enough pink that it would turn out nude-pink on your darker lips (I have the exact same hair/skintone and my lips are pretty dark as well) without making them too pale and weird. Joy is a peach color so it would pretty much do the same thing to your lips, it would add enough color to not wash them out but just enough light color to be kind of a nude look. I own both and I like them, so I'd go with whichever one you think you'd like better!

The nude has a bit of a pinky-mauve hue so if your interested I say try it out. If you bf doesn't like it you could always use it as a primer because it is nude, so long-lasting, & moisturing. I have light, olive-golden skin with dark hair and dark eyes. Although i didn't like the texture of this stain the color payoff of the nude was perfect for me.

Is it more like a lip stick consistency or is it a a liquid that instantly absorbs into the lips like Benetint? Do you have to wait a while before it sets?

The best way I can think to describe the consistency is similar to a lip liner- a kind of dry, crayon-like feel. There is no liquid to it, but it still glides on easily and evenly.

One thing I appreciate about this stain is that it applies a lot like lip stick, not like a liquid stain. For this reason, it probably doesn't last as long as some people would like a stain to last. I personally love the creaminess feel though and it truly does stay on longer than a regular lip stick or gloss.

Its in between the two, It takes a sec to set but its more like a stain with mositure it does not dry your lips out like benitint does, Better way better than the Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain pens with the balm on the end, those seem to remove the color, This is a very good Tarte product, treu to advertizing. Guess its all what you prefer but it only takes a sec for great lips

It's way better than lipstick or lip gloss... it goes on smooth with just the right amount of moisture, not gloppy like lip glosses. It is not a liquid at all, it's like a crayon which is super easy to apply any time without looking in the mirror. No setting time necessary either. Don't have to worry about precision when applying. It's like a lip balm with intense color and staying power. I love this stuff! I bought it in Envy color and it's like 3x a natural healthy flesh color :) I use it every single day!

I've found that this stain lasts longest when it's applied on super-clean lips. Ideally, after a shower when you've given your lips a good rub with a nubby washcloth (helps to make your lips nice and smooth).
I've had long lasting results from three of the matte colors, but I prefer the original LipSurgence line - they just seem more moisturizing.

The original has a slight gloss to it. The matte version feels dry, but is not drying on me. But it's also not particularly moisturizing either. It's a little strange but I like it. It's like you've dusted a light powder of color on your lips. The only negative is it accentuates dry areas. I use Korres mango SPF 10 on top and it looks awesome.

The original is much more moisturizing then the Matte version. But the matte version still is moisturizing esp for a lip stain that's matte. And of coase the Matte lip stain is MATTE and the original is more glossy/shiny.

answer 11
It's, well, more matte, of course. Both of them kind of accentuate dryness on the lips but really, the colors are the exact same and if you apply this over a lip balm you get the same effect as the creme version. The packaging on this one is rubbery, to give it a matte look, as opposed to the shinier tubes for the originals... one other difference is I think the matte version's colors are just a little more vibrant than the creme version, because the creme version is slightly glossier so it'll be naturally a bit sheerer. So if you want better color pay-off, I'd choose matte, but if you don't want to accentuate dryness on the lips, I'd choose creme.

Actually, mine did break the first time (after two days). The bottom twists a little too easily for floating around in a purse, and I think it caused the tip to extend and stick to the cap. When I took the cap off, the whole tip came off! Sephora replaced it for me. I keep it at home now.

I think Tarte lip surgence has the color you seek. I think it's called charme. Don't be fooled by the picture. This is a really cool pink (at least on me). When applied it's very moisturizing. When the gloss wears off, it leaves a significant amount of color.

I've had trouble with the lid and use my back teeth to open it. :) but I bought a new one and it has been perfect.

For me, if I see dark specks it's because my lips aren't perfectly smooth or dry. Just exfoliate your lips before you use it and you should be happy! (I exfoliate my lips in the shower so they're moist beforehand. Exfoliating lips dry isn't recommended.

I contacted customer service and they considered the product defective, refunded me the cost and sent out a new one. Fantastic customer service by Sephora. It was easier to open, though a lot of twisting the lid initially was involved. I would love to say this resolved the issue of the black flecks, but they are still in it. They are a lot less prominent, making the product wearable. It seems to be a issue with the mixing and molding of the product, maybe? I hope tarte can resolve this issue so that I can purchase an improved product in the future as I like the color.

Honestly it depends on what kind of fair you are. I happen to be pretty light as well and I go for more pinks and roses, as compared to peaches and such. But its personal preference. I love Lucky and Adored, but I think Glisten and Joy would be really pretty colors on fair skin as well. Look at the natural color of your lips (with no lipstick or gloss on them) and the natural color of your lips tend to tell you which direction to go. if they're really pinky or red go in that direction, but if they're a little more on the neutral side go for a peach or a neutral color. Hope this helped! :)

I have fair skin, and I used exposed. Its not too pink and its not too nude. I find the color to be just right. Use some chap stick with it though, after a while it tends to be drying to the lips.

I really like Hope! It's a little bit of a darker pink, so it stands out against fair skin, but it's still subtle enough for every-day wear. Hope that helps!

I have super fair skin and dark hair. Exposed is close to my natural lip color and I wear it when I don't want much color. Hope makes me look like I just came in from the snow - with pink, stained lips. Love them both.

I have dark red hair, light skin with freckles (not super fair, but medium-light skin tone), dark brown eyes and I use Envy. I think it gives a natural bit of color. Can apply it heavier for night.

Envy is great if you have fair skin and dark hair. I tried out the color after finding out that Kat Dennings wears this shade (she and I have very similar coloring).

Question
lip stain?
does this actually stain your lips (like a liquid lip stain) or is it more like a lipstick?

I don't think so. For me it fades in less than three hours.

I have the shade Lucky, a baby doll pink, and from my personal experience, I haven't found this product to have any staining qualities, and it applies most like a lipstick. However, I can't speak for any of the darker colors, which being more pigmented, might stain your lips.

sorta..its not as long lasting as i expected,i went to wipe my mouth after eating something and it wiped off,i had put it on recently so maybe it didnt have enough time to dry? i wanted it to last all day after i put it on no matter what but honestly i dont think you can get that with any product,if so i havent discovered it,my main reason of purchasing it was to get the matte finish,all in all,im happy i made the purchase!

This product is more like a lipstick because it doesn't really stain, but like a stain because it is so lightweight. Feels like wearing chapstick.

yes, it does stain fairly well, but perhaps not quite as much as a liquid stain. The color will last all day for me if I drink out of a straw, but I notice it usually needs re-applied after eating.

I hate lipsticks, they get everywhere and don't look natural. This is an actual stain. Apply a small amount, wait a little then blot off. Your lips will be stained without the excess on them.

its more lip a stain. It goes on easy with control that you would expect from a lip pencil

I think of it more as a lipstick, not a stain. In my book, stains don't wipe off with the swipe of a tissue. However this lip color does. Still one of my faves!

It does not need a sharpener (per the product packaging-box), twist the bottom.

I don't think it's supposed to be sharpened because it's too creamy. I twist it up like a lipstick.
