Lip Lust: Tarte LipSurgence Lip Gloss

Tarte LipSurgence Lip Gloss review

Opening a fresh tube of gloss or swiping on a brand new lipstick is one of the best feelings. Maybe not quite as extreme as applying a new identity, but uplifting nonetheless.

Imagine my delight at this stunning array of glosses to play with this Summer. Tarte’s newest formula, the Tarte LipSurgence Lip Gloss ($19 US) are fun and oh-so-shiny for the prettiest look.




Lip Lust: Hard Candy Ombre Lipstick

As someone who obsesses over the tiniest variations in color, ombre is a trend that I personally am not giving up. I adore the subtle (and sometimes not-so-subtle!) gradation that really expresses how rich and diverse color is.

So of course, when I saw the new Hard Candy Ombre Lipsticks ($6 US), I was really intrigued and had my fingers crossed that the concept would translate well as a lip color.



Lip Lust: NARS Lip Gloss

NARS Lip Gloss New

Lipgloss is one of those beauty products that I use in phases. There are some periods where I can’t step out of the house without a layer of shine, but other times I won’t want that glossy look.

I recently watched a Youtube video of a makeup tutorial centered around a beautifully done-up glossy lip, so as of right now I’m back on the lip gloss train trying to emulate that look.

Casually pulling her lipstick out of her chic cognac leather tote, my friend refreshes her lipstick anytime and anywhere. She never feels the need to use a mirror unless it’s already conveniently handy.

She’s less concerned about the precision of her look, because she pulls off her beauty with an impression of cool insouciance. As for me, I would never trust myself to fix any of the makeup on my face without some sort of reflective surface.

Tarte LipSurgence Power Pigment

With the chilly weather here in Massachusetts and my new internship at t+j Designs, I’ve never been wearing more things around my neck. Be it a chunky scarf or a glamorous crystal necklace, I’ve been gravitating towards stand-out lip colors to complement my accessories.

When I’m wearing a happy-looking, bright lip color, I feel a little bit cheerier, even in below-freezing temperatures. Lately, I’ve been loving the Tarte LipSurgence Power Pigment ($24 US), the latest release from their Spring collection.
