Tarte complexion enhancing lipstick

Through the ramp of beauty boxes I have recieved the last period, a few products I have tested lately and I actually liked. I have previously did a post on the unboxing of Glossybox June edition and one of the products that I am reviewing right now is the Tarte complexion enhancing lipstick.

The shade I received is  fair to light shade- beautiful pink nude shade with peach undertones.

The brand promises a complexion brightening lipstick, and it did brighten my complexion by bringing out my light olive complexion and my neutral undertones. Its a good shade for an everyday color. So you can drop it off in your makeup bag instead of your chapstick.
The Packaging is quite strange. The lid is almost like carton that I'm afraid if I threw this while traveling, it might get broken or something.

The lipstick smells like vanilla, but it actually tastes funny. Whenever I sniffed the scent of the lipstick, I, unconsciously, lick my lips and then get shocked by the bad taste and try told myself from the temptation of licking my lips.

Other than that, the lipstick is veeeeeeeeeeery moisturizing. It is soft and smoothly glided over my lips. It also has a good staying power.

Swatch in Shade

The Tarte complexion enhancing lipstick costs $24, so its quite on the expensive side. Honestly, I wouldn't have picked it up from the shelf. If you thought of it, the lipstick weighs 3.5 grams and costs $24 , while M.A.C lipsticks weigh 3 grams and costs $15. It needs no brains to figure that chances are I will defo pick the M.A.C one.

There another shade which is Medium-to-Tan for those with darker skintones. Which shade are you going to try out?
