Tarte Lipstick Shiraz

Tarte Lipstick Shiraz

This is a really lovely color for fall and a great lipstick overall. The color is a nice brownish red which can be layered more heavily for a darker lip, or very lightly for a nice neutral lip stain. This lipstick is heavily pigmented, so it really lasts. The texture of the lipstick is creamy, with a slightly-greasy feel which gives it some "slip" over the lips, as well as a nice amount of shine (but not super glossy!). At night I did use a gloss to give it a little more "oomph" . The container is smaller than most lipstick tubes, which I really like for carrying around, but the amount of product is the same as most lipsticks, which is great. The lipstick did not dry out my lips, but did come off a little when I ate anything with oil, which is to be expected, even from a long lasting lip product. This is exactly what I've been looking for to get away from my usual neutral beige/brown lip that I did all summer!
