Swatches: Tarte Maracuja Oil Lipglosses in Viv and Lizzy

Today I will be reviewing the Tarte Maracuja Oil Lipoglosses that came in the holiday Tarte of Giving Set.

The set was $72 CAD and included an eyeshadow palette, 8 lipglosses, and a variety of other deluxe samples. I thought it was really great value and I will try to show you the swatches of all the lipglosses as I use them. I gave one away to a friend but stay tuned to see 7 swatches!

Side note: Americans get the set for $59 which is such a crazy difference!

Doe foot applicator. Sponge tip but it's firm

Each lip gloss contains .059oz (1.7mL) of product and has a gorgeous packaging with a gold colored cap. The applicator is nice to use. There is a tingling minty feel. The texture is a bit thicker but I don't find it sticky.  The pigmentation is medium

However, I hate how I can't get all the product out. I'm almost done one of the lipglosses but I can see there's lots of products left in the rub.

Tarte Viv: Light strawberry pink with coral undertone. Slight shimmer
Tarte Lizzy: Bright pink with a bit of fuschia. Slight shimmer

Viv is a great every day color that I've been wearing in January and I also like Lizzy for a bit more color


  1. Tarte Lizzy is such a beautiful color! I would love if you could check out my blog!

    1. Thanks! Yea I think the brighter color would be great for spring!

      Will do :)

  2. I love the colours! I like the natural shade with a hint of colour. :) Thanks for the swatches!

    Take care always, love Christine ~ xo


    1. Thank you! Yea I actually think it's easier to apply glosses if they aren't so pigmented. Easier to wear on a daily basis.

  3. These colors are so pretty!
    My favorite is the lizzy color! It's so perfect!

    1. Thanks! They have a couple more really gorgeous colors too so I will get those swatches up soon too!

  4. They are really pretty colors, especially for the spring and summer time (:
