Tarte’s Lipsurgence in Glitzy

This is not one of my favorites from this collection. The color itself is very nice, and it applies more rose than brown. I like the shade and the shimmer. What I'm less wild about is its sheer nature, and its lack of adhesion. If this were just a little more pigmented, it would be a solid use-nearly-every-day shade. It still kind of is...but I have to keep re-applying more frequently than I'd like. I can get about an hour's wear out of it before it's virtually gone. (Dear Revlon: are you paying attention? This is one of the shades that I'd like to see you add to your Balmstain lineup...this, and any shimmer-finish sticks.)
