    LOVE THIS

    Stumbled upon this collection of sheer moist stain pencils by Tarte the other day & fell in love with the wet moist transparent formula. LipSurgence is the right name for this product! Very moisturizing. Gives lips a somewhat wet sensation, something to take into account if that's not your cup of tea. I like my lips to feel moisturized, but I admit that a wet feeling takes some getting used to (th...read moreink Aquafina Flavor Splash lip balm!) Happily, even after I wiped the product off, my lips didn't dry out. (Note, when you wipe off the product, all the color is removed.. no visible stain of color is left on the lips.) Love the solid pencil formula & the efficient twist-up pencil packaging.. Tarte has a winner here.. no product wasted, no product breakage during handling, no leaking, no fuss or muss, completely effortless application just like applying any lipstick or lipbalm. No telltale liplines either. Super-expensive at $24 but then again most high-end products from Sephora run in this price range (or higher!), plus you get an acceptably decent amount of product in the packaging (about half the tube's length I would say). I wanted to like Moody but the color turnout on my lips is not the same as the packaging. On my lips it comes out more brownish or tawny than the moody plum of the plastic tube...I was disappointed. So I didn't buy this. Enchanted also doesn't come out the color of its tube but a very pretty sheer natural bubblegum pink (the package looks more tawny-mauve). So I really recommend you test the colors out on yourself & you can't really gauge accurate color by the packaging, & $24 a pop is a lot of money to pay for a color you may end up disliking on your lips. Hence 1 lippie off my rating. Shade notwithstanding, the formula is very sheer & moist, making it easily workable even if the color's different than what you thought you'd get. They are all beautiful shades & all of them are flattering & natural, but I'm very fussy about my berry/plum/cool shades & if it's not quite right, I'm not happy. I wish Tarte made this moist lippie in a sheer grape color as well... to me that would be perfection. — 1 day, 1 hour ago
