tarte Kiss and Makeup 5 piece Amazonian Butter Lipstick Set


tarte Kiss and Makeup 5 piece Amazonian Butter Lipstick Set 
Like most, I've fallen headlong into the butter-themed lip craze. Who doesn't love the idea of a a nourishing balm that glides on and offers some pigment? While I've kept my sights relatively narrow, focusing mainly on the Revlon Lip Butter range (the collection that launch a thousand "butter" lippies), I've wanted to branch into newer lines from brands I know and love. First up: tarte. While perusing ULTA's site for value sets, I stumbled upon tarte's Kiss and Makeup 5 piece Amazonian Butter Lipstick Set - a collection of 5 full size lipsticks! The shades included are:

Pink Poinsettia - peachy pink
Angelic Nude - pink-nude
Merry Berry - brown-toned berry with subtle purple shimmer 
Candy Red - pink-leaning red
Sweet Peach - soft peachy coral

Each one comes packaged in a beautifully patterned cardboard tube. All but Merry Berry have cream finishes with smooth textures that glide on the lips. While the same can be said for Berry Merry, the slight shimmer adds the tiniest amount of texture that I only noticed when blotting my lips together. While all were moisturizing and provided even, creamy coverage, the finish suffers the same short fate that so many other lip butters do - it wears off after about an hour or two. Fortunately, the bolder shades stain the lips slightly so even after the finish is gone, the lips still have a gorgeous tint!

While these are very comparable to Revlon's Lip Butters, I would say they are creamier, apply more evenly than many of the shades, and have a more refined texture than the Lip Butters that contain shimmer. That being said, Lip Butters are about half the price of tarte's Amazonian Lip Butters ($16). Given the subtle differences, I can't say I would spend that on one - but this set is an excellent deal! I think this is not only a great way to sample multiple flattering shades from the tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick line, but also a good way to try new shades if it's a formula you already know and love. This gem is an online-only steal - get it while it lasts!
