Hello beautiful ladies!
I carry on looking through my lip glosses and lipsticks collection and showing them to you. When it comes to a lip product for me, I have to say that I’m rather constant here. Usually, I opt for some nude lipsticks and my favorite formula is a lip gloss or creamy moisturizing lipstick.
Today we have the Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick to review, which I do love, though I can’t recommend it to you, unfortunately.
The design is exciting and cute! So nice, feminine and spring-like. The casing is cardboard, it’s of rather good quality, so I have nothing negative to say about it. Each shade from the collection has its own unique printing, so if you have some of them, it won’t be a problem to distinguish them.
Size - 3.1g.

The lippie has the gentlest, softest and really butter-like texture. And due to that gentle texture, the product shows its first disadvantage. You see, it’s so easy to break down, especially in summer when it melts down. And it’s just a catastrophe! It’s impossible to take up with me, ever. So there isn’t any chance to touch-up. The stick will fall out and break down for sure. One more thing is that the stick always touches the rims of the casing. To top it off I have to confess that my lipstick broke down after the first use.
All summer my Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick was chilling out in my fridge. And it feels good only there. Maybe I’ll take it out in winter but still, I guess it won’t go longer than my fridge anyway.
The coverage from this lipstick is semi-sheer with a glossy shiny finish. It’s really comfortable and nourishing for my lip. It even looks more like a lip gloss, rather than a lipstick. But once I start applying this gentle texture on my lips, I always face one more problem. The coverage that it gives never looks smooth.
The product settles down in my fine lip lines, it accentuates all the flaky bits and if your lips have relief, it’s very likely that it’ll feather. However, it still never gathers with a white film on my inner lip. Good! I still can apply it evenly but it requires so much effort. Perfect lips, this is the only thing that it requires to look good.(mine aren’t bad indeed) I always have to let it for about 5-10 minutes after application to smooth out and set on my lips. Only after that, I can leave my house.
The staying power is average, so to speak - 2-3 hours maybe.
It fades delicately and evenly. There isn’t any distinctive flavor or smell to the formula, though the mint note is still remarkable. But it doesn’t tingle my skin or cool it down.
The Amazonian Butter Lipstick
collection doesn’t offer a wide range of colors to select, as all of them look versatile and semi-sheer.
For me, I chose the shade called Golden Pink, which is gentle and pinky peach.
I was going to buy the entire collection, but facing all that mumbo-jumbo with this one, I quickly changed my mind. It isn’t worth all that, even though I still passionately love it for unknown reasons.
This Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick has some serious drawbacks and it’s way worse than many other lipsticks quality-wise. But, it’s so loved and cherished by me that I still forgive it a lot and store in my already stuffed fridge. I can’t and won’t recommend it for purchasing. It’ll be much easier to find a dupe for this lipstick. As for me, I’ll keep on using it with great pleasure.
