Tarte Lip Luxuries Deluxe Sculptor Set for Holiday 2017!

Purchased by me

Every year at Holiday time, I like to buy a few lipstick sets to give and to keep. They are a great value and you get lots of pretty colors you may not otherwise try. This year my beloved lipstick/gloss formula Tarte’s Lip Sculptor is being offered as a limited edition Holiday set. The Tarte Luxuries Deluxe Lip Sculptor Set includes five new shades of mini-size double ended lipsticks and glosses in special holiday packaging for $34.

These provide the ideal mix of a creamy lipstick with a shiny gloss in one product to create the perfect lip. I love lipstick, but more often than not I find myself adding a gloss on top for the smooth texture and added shine. Tarte The Lip Sculptor Double Ended Lipstick & Gloss is the best of both worlds and allows you to create and customize lots of different combinations and looks. Wear the lipstick alone, gloss alone or layer them like I do. Mix different shades and textures to your delight!

The lipstick formula is pretty perfect. It’s very moist and creamy and nicely pigmented with a beautiful finish. There is no shimmer, but a really pretty sheen that keeps it from being flat. It’s extremely comfortable to wear and lasts at least five hours on me. The gloss side has really nice pigmentation with a great color pay off making it wearable on its own. It doesn’t feel sticky or tacky and wears for almost as long as the lipstick. Both the gloss and lipstick contain coconut oil, maracuja, and Vitamin E for maximum hydration. They are also free of nasty parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan, and gluten. There is a light vanilla scent that dissipates quickly so I don’t think it would bother most people. Good news for us over 40 beauties, there is no sinking into lip lines or feathering!

Shades are:

  • Quest (rosy apricot)
  • Pride (poppy)
  • Trinket (rosy mauve)
  • Gem (rosy peach)
  • Bangle (deep cherry)

The set has a good selection of nudes, rose shades and rich, deep shades. Honestly, every shade is a winner which can be rare in sets like this. The limited edition packaging is beautiful: a gold background with bright Moroccan-inspired designs houses the lipstick and the other end is clear revealing the color of the gloss. I love the idea of having a lipstick and gloss in one tube–it makes traveling super easy.  I also love the small size, I can’t remember the last time I used up an entire tube of lipstick so it’s perfect for me. The set is also a great way to try the product for a great price!

Bottom Line: these color-rich, creamy, moisturizing lipsticks and glosses provide for a variety of looks while performing beautifully. The set is a great value and the colors are universally flattering. The Tarte Luxuries Deluxe Lip Sculptor Set also makes a great gift!
