Tarte Glamazon pure performance 12-hour lipstick (Phew, that’s a mouthful!) is described as a long wearing, clay infused lipstick and retails for $26.00… It is supposed to be a rich, vivid and long wearing color that applies smoothly and that doesn’t fade away..
I purchased one such Glamazon from Sephora to try out.. I was instantly blown away by the pigmentation on these lipsticks.. I swatched a few and found my calling.. had to be a bright orange-red! 😉
The color I have is called “Fierce” and is described as a bright red lipstick.. Went on smoothly on the lips without any lip primer and did not dry out my lips.. It has a satin like finish and stays put throughout a regular 9-10 hour workday (I did touch up after lunch even though it didn’t come off completely)! I apply it with my Sigma L05 lip brush..
I received a bunch of compliments that day and also tried it on my friends with darker skin tones and it looked lovely on them too.. It’s available in 7 other shades and I am sure there is one for every skin tone.. For reference, my skin tone is NC 40-42…
