Tarte’s Lip Service Lipsurgence kit

Five Lipsurgence pencils in lip tint and lip luster - the formulas that are sheer or semisheer, and don’t last nearly as long. Still, if you’ve wanted to try the Liplusters and didn’t know which shade to choose - or don’t mind semisheer lip colors - this is a decent set to start with. It’s limited edition, so I’m going to guess that it won’t be around much past Christmas 2011.

This collection contained:

  • Dazzled — semisheer tanned coral shimmer
  • Flashy — semisheer fuchsia shimmer
  • Glitzy — semisheer muted pink shimmer
  • Perky — sheer baby pink sheen
  • Swank — sheer cherry-red sheen

These shades are all exclusive to this set. They aren't available anywhere else for individual purchase.

I kind of wish that Tarte would release a matte shade or two in these exclusive kits. The matte lipsurgence pencils have better color payoff and last longer than do the sheers. That said, Swank has pretty decent color payoff, and it stays in place the longest of the other colors in this kit. Flashy is my other favorite - it isn't as deep a shade as Swank, the color payoff is just a tiny bit less, but it's a gorgeous shade that really looks good on me.
