Tarte Tarteist Lip Crayon in Latergram

I’ve been longing for a soft pink lip liner that doesn’t wash out my brown complexion, so I was really excited when I heard about Latergram.


The Tarte lip crayons come in a slim, twist-up mechanical pencil.


The color is officially described as “mauve”. To me, it is a soft pink with no blue tones and a touch of brown.


As you can see, it complements my skin tone and is a companion shade to TBT.

The color looks great on me.


Here are the issues: Latergram is very dry on my lips and rubs off in tiny balls when worn all over my lips. This looks to be best worn as a liner to only rim the mouth. The pencil breaks off easily, so only the smallest tip should be raised when using it.

I simply love the color, so I will keep this but I doubt I will repurchase. I hope Tarte improves the formula because this lip liner has so much promise.

I paid $18 for this at Sephora.

  2. Can you mix this with a bit of petroleum jelly or lip balm to make a lip gloss with this pretty color? I’ve been known to do that with the end of a favorite color, to make it last just a little longer.

  3. Awww, too bad about all the little cons…

    The color looks great on you! I had a sample of this and it would keep breaking.

    I got this as a mini in a Sephora Play! box in the same shade, and the tip was so fragile it was unusable 😦 It was thinner than the full size version so it probably broke even more easily! Tarte really needs to work on their formula…
