Tarte LipSurgence Lip Luster in Glitzy Review and Swatch

I recently did a post on Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed.  In keeping with my current hunt for the perfect natural hues, I want to follow up with Tarte LipSurgence Lip Luster in Glitzy.

Tarte LipSurgence Lip Luster Glitzy

A couple of months ago, I tried on Urban Decay Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color in Naked.  It’s gorgeous.  Almost perfect.  But Naked is the tiniest bit more pink than I wanted.  Since then, I haven’t been able to find an ideal MLBB shade.  I blame the distraction on hunting for reds.  But recently, my favorite makeup artist pointed out Glitzy to me.  Described as an “antique pink,” I think it makes a gorgeous counterpart to Tarte’s Exposed Blush.  Don’t you?

I am fully aware that Tarte also has a Matte Lip Tint in Exposed, but I am all about the shimmering finish of Glitzy.  It gives that little extra something that makes the shade so special.  The luster finish is also what takes an average look and makes it exceptional.

Price: $24.00

Availability: Tarte, Sephora, Ulta

Summary: Housed in twist-up (can I get a “Hallelujah?”) chubby pencil form and packaging the same color as the shade itself, it’s hard to say “no” to a perfect natural lip color with a bit of added flair.  Tarte LipSurgence Lip Luster in Glitzy is a neutral shade that will flatter warm and cool skin tones alike.

      RIGHT?! There’s a sale at Tarte (that ends today) offering a free LipSurgence. That combined with Aqualillies and my wallet is screwed.

    WHOA now – a SALE…I’m heading over there now! That Exposed blush hasn’t left my mind since I saw your review! :) I tried one of these about 2 years ago and didn’t like it because it was mint-flavored/scented. It sure is a pretty shade, though!

      I don’t mind the mint scent so much. It doesn’t last too long, so getting some mint for free wouldn’t be terrible :)

        Mint for free! LOL! I love you, man. Too funny!

    Looks good on you! I think you are right when you say that this shade would suit many skin tones.

      What I really want is to see it on a deep skin tone. I have a feeling it would be lovely :)

    i think that this lip luster does go well with the blush. i didn’t like the shimmer in the tarte lipsurgence that i tried, but it looks nice on you.

      Shimmer is something I never cared for much until recently. I’m sure I’ll go through shimmer-free phases again though!
