Last week I decided to check out New Arrivals section on the Ulta Beauty website and I stumbled across the Tarte Lip Treats Lip Sculptor Duo. A lover of Tarte Cosmetics I decided to order them (they were only 12.00usd!!!), and let’s face it, you can never have too many nude lipsticks in your beauty arsenal.

So, what are they? They are limited edition deluxe size version of the of the original Lip Sculptor Lipstick & Lip Gloss in existing shades of the larger version. These are great for the girl or boy on the go because they take up less room in your makeup bag or purse and you can wear them together (lipstick and gloss) or either one alone.

The two colors in the duo are VIP, a cool toned nude, and life, a peachy nude. Not only are they SUPER pigmented but they are infused with a bunch of great stuff for your lips! Vitamin E, coconut oil, and maracuja are all packed into these little beauties and they have an amazing vanilla scent.


Alright, now for some swatches of these lovelies.


As you can see both are really pigmented, and that’s just from one swipe. The lipstick is a has a satin matte finish and the gloss is extremely hydrating without being sticky or heavy.

I would recommend using a lip scrub prior to putting these on like you would with any other lipstick or gloss, the gloss is so pigmented it starts to settle into lines if you put too much on or your lips aren’t hydrated enough. They were super easy to apply, they went on so smooth and didn’t skip on the lips. I enjoyed both of these very much and they would make a perfect addition to your makeup collection or a gift for a makeup lover that you know!
