Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint in Crop Top

As a child of the 90s, I started panting like Zoe when I heard about this 90s inspired collection of brown lip colors. I never owned a true crop top when I was a teen, so owning this mauve-brown lip color is as close as I’ll ever get.


It comes in the standard tube packaging other Lip Paints come in.

With a beautiful and “I have good posture” doe-foot applicator.


Here it is in sunlight:


It looks sort of warm and yellow based. It is actually more plummy.

Here it is in natural light:


And here it is on me!


As you can see, it’s not as dark or Nancy Downs-esque as it appears in the swatch.

Temptalia gave this a C+ but I would give it a B. It’s a decent lip color. It fades on me after 3 hours but with a lip liner I can push it to 4 hours. I like layering this over Latergram lip liner for a soft pinkish brown effect.

I’m want to get Brownie and Choker next. I’ll get the swatches up as soon as I can.
