Envy is a wonderful color for paler complexions! This goes on well, stays on nicely, and looks and feels great! Also, it doesn't smell weird like lipsticks so that is a plus.

I love that little tang of Mint on all Tarte Lip Products. This stain lasts and you get color that you can adjust. Not too overbearing-in your face color. Natural looking. Love this! I'll be a steady buyer of Tarte as long as they keep up this innovation and quality. Thank you Maureen!

I have several of the matte lip surgence and I think they're just great, VERY comfortable! More than my MAC matte lipsticks! If you like the matte finish and you're looking for something comfortable, this is what you're looking for!

I was on the market for a matte lip color that won't fade or dry out my sensitive lips. I typically have dry, crack lips and it's hard to find a lip stick that won't irritate my sensitive lips. Tarte LipSurgence├óÔÇ×┬ó matte lip tint glads on very smooth on my lips and the color was very rich. I love the hydrating feeling it offers. I'm very happy with this product!

I love this stuff! I purchased Firey on a whim for a wedding- I have tried so many red lipsticks that have never worked out and so I thought maybe a lip tint (not from the drugstore) that claimed to be matte would work. Let me tell you it was exactly what I had been searching for! It goes on great- it stays FOREVER- I can even eat a whole meal with this stuff on with no need to re-apply and it is actually matte (I am not a shiny lipstick person- hair stuck to your lips is never good). This is perfect for low maintenance make-up people. It also goes on minty and really moisturizes your lips so they aren't all dry and flaky as you wear it or after you take it off. I went back and bought it in Exposed and Lucky...I am now a lipstick lady thanks to this stuff!

These matte balms are the bomb. Two thumbs up. The color payoff is insane and is only improved by the beautiful matte finish. No complaints to be had.

Exposed is my favorite and it is absolutely lovely. This stuff smells great and lasts all day too. If you don't always want the matte look but like the color, just apply some lip balm over the top :)

I really like how these feel on the lips. They are not drying for me, which I really like. I wish they lasted a little longer, but it is a creamy and smooth application, which I love!

Exposed and Hope are my go-to colors for any photoshoot or commercial where my clients need to look natural and professional. Exposed looks great on anyone as a slightly nude lip, Hope is a bit rosier.

I have this in envy and I LOVE the colour! It suits my medium-tan skin really well, and I receive so many compliments when I wear this out. I would definitely recommend exfoliating your lips and using a lip balm as a base though, because it can be quite drying if applied heavily. It has a really pleasant minty tingle when you apply it too, and the colour is really buildable.

The only disappointing aspect of this was that the lip product came apart from the inner tube/twisting mechanism a couple of weeks after I bought it (this happened with my butter lipstick too) and I wasn't even taking it out anywhere where it could get bumped around. I just opened the cap one morning to apply it and the entire product fell out :( I was able to fix it but it's still not something I expect from an barely used $29 lip tint.

I have the full-size pencil in Fiery & Lively, as well as the mini matte shades from the Holiday 2013 set. This is probably my favourite lip formula I have ever tried. It's matte but not overly drying, and it lasts four hours upon hours. There is very, very minimal transfer onto coffee cups. And the best part is that they impart a minty scent, so it's almost like freshening your breath. :)

I want to buy all of the colours eventually!
