Tarte LipSurgence Lip Gloss in Kiss

Hey all beauty geeks!!! Today I am going to review Tarte LipSurgence Lip Gloss in Kiss. Tarte is well known for its chubby lip products. Originally launched as lip tints, Tarte now has these beauties in various versions. Recently they dabbled in glosses as well. Knowing their expertise in making awesome lip products, I was curious to check out their lip glosses. And with the temperature increasing every single day, it is a good idea to stack on some new glosses. 😉

My take on Tarte LipSurgence Lip Gloss in Kiss:

Tarte LipSurgence Lip Glosses come in various pretty colors. Kiss is described as ‘light pink with gold shimmer’ by the company. I find Kiss to be a very sheer pale pink gloss with visible chunks of glitter. Yes, glitter and not shimmer. Since the gloss is very sheer, it is perfect for layering on other lip products. The gloss adds a very juicy finish to the lips with the golden sparkle. Even when worn alone, it looks beautiful as your lips will have an awesome healthy shine with slight golden glitter.

Texture: Tarte LipSurgence Lip Gloss in Kiss is a creamy gloss with a smooth texture. Though glitter is very visible, it is not very chunky to feel. In fact, once you apply the gloss, you hardly feel any glitter on the lips. The gloss is also non-sticky and does not feel goopy or heavy on the lips.

Pigmentation: The gloss has a sheer pigmentation with hardly any color. It is best used to add glossy finish to natural lips or any other lip color you are wearing.

Staying Power: Tarte LipSurgence Lip Gloss in Kiss has an average staying power of 2-3 hours. Well, the gloss is very sheer to begin with. I never expected a long lasting stay from it anyways.

Smell: The gloss has a sweet smell, which is not very bothering.
