When I saw this little set on the Sephora website I knew I was going to get it! I love the full size Amazonian Butter Lipstick that I got in the Sephora Favorities - Give Me Some Lip, but that shade is more of a Spring/Summer one. This mini set comes with 4 different deluxe sample sizes of the Amazonian Butter Lipstick formula which I have come to really like. I think this will be a great formula for the coming Winter months as it is quite moisturizing and comfortable to wear.
In the Tarte Deluxe Amazonian Butter Lipstick Set you get -
Punch - Mauve Pink
Mimosa - Peachy Nude
Bellini - Golden Pink
Sangria - Berry Red
These four shades are all very wearable, especially if you are like me and afraid of anything to bright! Sangria is a great pick for the Fall/Winter, it is just enough Berry for me to be comfortable wearing. I can do one swipe and it gives just a hint of color, or if I am feeling bold I can build it up. Punch is just a tad bit lighter in intensity than Sangria, and a great choice for daytime. I think Mimosa is a gret MLBB shade with just a hint more pink, another great one for everyday or when you are going for a more natural look. When I saw the description of Bellini I was thinking that it would be the shade that I wouldn't touch due to the 'Golden', AKA glitter, in the description. But the glitter is very fine and doesn't show as sparkles on your lips! So Bellini is wearable even for me! The 'glitter' really doesn't even show, it shows more as shine when you are wearing it.
These Tarte lipsticks aren't the most longwearing formula even for me, but for what they lack in staying power they make up for in comfort. They last for about 2-3 hours on me before needing a touch up, which isn't horrible.
If you are wanting to give Tarte's Amazonian Butter Lipstick a try, or just need a few new wearable shades for the upcoming cooler months this set is a great set! Or if you are afraid of the darker/vampy shades this would be a great introduction to them!
The Tarte Deluxe Amazonian Butter Lipstick Set retails for $25 CAD at Sephora and is said to be a $38 CAD value. It isn't the best deal out there, but for me it was as I will wear all of these shades.
Have you picked up any of the new Holiday gift sets that are starting to show up everywhere? I have picked up a few others which I will give you a peek at shortly as well I have quite the list that I am hoping to pick up during the Sephora sale that I believe is starting November 6 for VIB Rouge.
