Tarte’s Lipsurgence in Envy

This color is almost a little too deep for my preferences; but I can lighten it a bit. It stays put with minimal touch-ups, and it's a very flattering shade for people with neutral or cool-toned coloring. (I don't know that this shade would look as good on golden skintones - it's too blue.) Envy is part of the regular Lipsurgence line, and I haven't ever seen it in kits, so you'll probably want to buy this during a sale or by using something like Ebates, where you can get a little money back. I do like how these rotate upward, rather than you having to sharpen them so there's no product loss (or the hassle of sharpening)...but $29 is still pretty steep.
