A lipstick companion that a girl can confide in is pretty much like a best friend. You can rely on it and trust it just the same, right? Maybe I love lipsticks a little too much. Anyhow, I have a new lipstick ‘bestie’ and I really need to share it with you.
I am an avid nude lipstick wearer, and there have been many I have confided in but there’s a newbie in town. It’s the Tarte Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint, and my favourite shade is Bestie. I do actually have a few of these lipsticks, but this one for sure stands out from the rest. My nude lipstick preference is a deep nude, more on the brown side than anything else, which is exactly what Bestie is. On my skin tone it’s a medium brown nude with slight pinky undertones, which I find really flattering and feminine.
This shade would work well with many skin tones as it’s in the middle of the ‘nude’ shade spectrum. I also find that it compliments so many different makeup looks. I’ve worn it with golden eyes, purples, cranberries, and mattes, shimmers and metallics – I haven’t yet found a look it doesn’t go with! Here, I’m wearing it with the Tarte Pro Amazonian Clay Eye Palette on the eyes and Pro Glow Highlight & Contour Kit on the face. I’ve honeslty been so into Tarte lately, can you tell? I just find there products so easy to work with and so worth every penny.
The Matte Lip Paint come with a precision wand that helps you apply the product with ease and is quite fool proof. I use the tip of the wand to contour and line the lips, then use the wider part of the applicator to fill in the rest. I never go wrong with these lip paints, even with the brighter shades that I usually use a liner with. The quick dry formula adheres to the lips within seconds and stays put for a good 6-8 hours. Although it dries matte, I find it a really comfortable matte and even when it wears away I find it doesn’t crack or crumble, it fades away all together and doesn’t leave me looking like a hot mess.
You can purchase the Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paints on the Tarte and Sephora websites, and I hope one day they’ll come to QVC so they’re easily accessible to us here in the UK!
Do you have any new lipstick companions?
