These lip tints are my most recent obsession. I love a bright lip but most lipsticks tend to turn the lip makeup step into quite an event. If I am out and about, I usually have to pop into bathrooms or take a peek at a compact mirror to touch up (which can involve removal, exfoliation, balm application, re-application of the lipstick, and even gloss application etc…).
For me, most lipsticks are reserved for special events. What I love about LipSurgence natural lip tints is that they are easy (and beautiful). First of all, they are of that great pencil applicator style which makes application easy. The “gel” formula glides on and does not accentuate dry lips (which is why I tend to shy away from most lipsticks). On the contrary, the skinvigorating ingredients actually significantly moisturize your lips and the peppermint oil gives a nice cooling and calming effect. The best part of these pencils is that they are a tint. I am really over the moon about this! The lovely colours last even after the product is gone.
So far, I have tried two of the colours from this line. “Charmed” is an adorable bubblegum light pink that is great for summer and beautifully subtle and soft. “Enchanted” is a deep rose colour that is perfect for evening or dressing up.

Tarte also has two other similar lines of pencil tints; LipSurgence natural lip luster, which has some glitter and sparkle in the product, and LipSurgence natural matte lip tint. Overall, these lip tints are the best of two worlds: soft and moisturizing like a great balm, a beautiful colour and glow like the perfect lipstick with the added bonus of a long-lasting tint. I definitely recommend popping into a Sephora and giving these a go. I guarantee you will be sold – I cannot wait to try the other colours!
