Good morning everyone. Happy Sunday! I am tarte happy. What does that mean? Couple months ago, I purchased a tarteist lip liner, mood ring from their Spring collection. I tried it by itself and tried it with a lip scrub. Unfortunately, at that time I wasn’t quite happy with it. I don’t know why. But today, I tried it after using lip scrub and Smith’s Minted Rose lip balm and am very satisfied with the results 😀 Maybe that means I just needed a lip balm underneath?
Anyways, Tarte came out with Tarteist lip liner and lip paint (similar to liquid lipsticks). I’m not into their lip paints. Then again, I’m not really into liquid lipsticks either. They dry out my lips so badly and by break time at work I have flakes and fading. Tarte’s one does stain a bit. I think it might be because it’s a paint?
Although I don’t like their lip paints, this lip liner isn’t all that bad. Mood ring is the only one I own because at that time I was looking more into lipsticks and trying liquid lipsticks than lip liners.
When applying this lip liner or any lip liner in fact, you must moisturize your lips. If not, your lip pencil tip may break. I have had that happen two or three times. After moisturizing, I usually line the lips and then color in the whole lips. That’s it! I will blot and make the line more neater, then color over again without lining the lips, so the lining will not be too much.
