I’m completely addicted to jumbo lip pencils & the Tarte LipSurgence Lip Tint pencils were (from what I can remember…) my first loves.I’ve collected quite a few pencils & I actually like them all. There are a few with a bit too much glitter for day to day but I’ve found a way to wear them all probably because I absolutely love the formula. For reference, none of the shades in this set are “glittery” woo! These pencils retail in a full size for $24 each so I’m always on the lookout for deals. Keep reading to see if this one is for you!
These pencils last a really long time in the tube so I wasn’t worried about only having minis. The Tarte Pure Delights 8-Piece LipSurgence set is limited edition for the holidays & contains 8 pencils total- 4 original lips tints & 4 matte lip tints.
I wanted to give you a visual on how much product you actually get. Here is my full size Tarte LipSurgence Natural Lip Luster in Escape (a limited edition shade) next to the mini matte shade Glee. The full size contains 0.1 oz while the mini contains 0.06 oz. They contain more than half of a full size which is quite decent! The packaging is also exceptional for a mini, the caps, feel, & twist up is identical to the original so if you like them you’re set.
If you’re a visual person, check out these two twisted up! I don’t use Escape much which is why I used it to compare (pretty glitzy!) so this is pretty much two untouched pencils.
If you dig peppermint, long lasting color that leave a staining effect, & automatic jumbo lip pencils I think you’lll really like these. They aren’t especially moisturizing for me personally but I do have somewhat dry lips. However, definitely not uncomfortable either! The only different between the two rows below are the matte/original formulas.
Top row: Tarte Lipsurgence Lip Tints in Lovely, Believe, Grateful, & Enamored.
Bottom row: Tarte LipSurgence Matte Lip Tints in Glee, Generous, Cheerful, & Destined.
So there you have it! I absolutely love this set, a really nice mix of shades that actually lean a bit bolder than a lot of the shades Tarte usually offers. The mini sizes have me tossing them in my handbag more often & will be perfect for clutches this holiday season. How perfect would these be for gifts as well? You could seperate them into 4/2 or give the whole set to a fellow beauty lover.
Tarte Pure Delights 8-Piece LipSurgence™ Lip Set is available from Sephora for a limited time & retails for $34.
My favorite shades so far have been Believe, Enamored, Glee, & Cheerful! What do you think of this set? Interested in any of the Tarte sets this year?
