I love buying makeup sets from the official Tarte Cosmetics website when they offer free delivery. I can always find something interesting and cool. Most of all I love their lipsticks, so without any further ado, I bought this set which comprised of this lipstick & lip gloss and also blush.


Price - $24 for the full size. It has 3.5g of lipstick and 2g of a lip gloss.

My deluxe sample has 1.5g of lipstick and 1ml of a lip gloss.



The set with minis arrived packed with a zip packet.

Tarte Cosmetics

Inside it had a small blusher and a mini of a lipstick & lip gloss.

Outer appearance of a mini

The tube is long and looks like the full size.

The packaging is made of plastic, however, it still seems like a very expensive item.

The product is dual-sided, one has a cream bullet lippie, while another is with a lip gloss and applicator.

Shade - VIP




Shade: pink-beige nude. It combines these two shades well, so the finish always appears differently with different eye makeup. Sometimes it’s pinker, other times, it’s more beige-toned.

Lip gloss

The tube is made of see-through sturdy plastic.

This small and dual applicator is soft and handy.

Semi-sheer pink-beige shade:

Both products together:

In comparison with a lipstick, this gloss is redder, however, it doesn’t look red on my lips.



Its texture is soft, creamy and hydrating. Here we have one of the best formulas of bullet lipsticks, which I’ve ever tried.

The application is easy, the stick glides on my lips and applies with good thick color on one go.

The finish is creamy and not matte or glossy. It doesn’t set on my lips, so it’s comfortable to wear due to the hydrating complex that also soothes my chapped lips.

The wear time is regular for a cream lipstick, for several hours. When I have a bite, I eat it up fully.


Lip gloss

Here the texture is gooey and sticky.

However, it’s still easy to apply smoothly with a featured applicator. It doesn’t feather. The coverage is thin and that’s enough to camouflage my flaking skin if there are any skin bits.

The finish is glossy and shining.

The comfort is average I don’t welcome lip glosses because of their sticky texture and gooey consistency. This one fits the bill, but I’m glad that it isn't the worst.

The wear time isn’t long, like of any other lip gloss.


Overall- I liked this dual-sided lip product because of its cream part. It stole my heart with its formula and the shade. I hardly ever use this lip gloss because I don’t like sticky formulas. The idea of a lipstick and a lip gloss in one seems handy. I always carry a tinted lip oil, a lip balm and a lipstick with me. This babe significantly saves some room in my purse.
