Bunny aka grav3yardgirl did a collaboration with Tarte and they create a collection with a palette and 2 liquid lipsticks. I tried to be good this month so I only limited myself to 1 item from the collection and chose this liquid lipstick. Any swamp family members out there?
To start off, the box was very unique and ‘bunny-like’ with a wood print theme that is detailed with gold lettering. They even took the time to make the box embossed in a way to make the wood ridges feel more ‘realistic’ and detailed. The product itself comes in the same packaging as their original Lip Paints – but they added Bunny’s autograph to the cap in gold. The applicator is a flattened felt tip and the size is travel friendly. Overall, the highlight of the packaging was definitely the box for me. However, the product itself comes in the same packaging as their other lip paints and so not many issues there. (for details see my original review on the lip paint)
The formula is extremely similar to the original Lip Paint – if you want details please refer to that review. However to run through it quickly the formula is not like your typical liquid lipstick as it has a mousse like texture and does not set quite as quickly and dry as others. The product feels a lot like a regular lipstick when on the lips but lighter and smoother. However, it does transfer a little and does not wear as long. On the bright side the product does not dry out the lips as much as regular liquid lipsticks and does not peel and crack at all. Overall, I am not the biggest fan of the formula however I do not blame Bunny or Tarte as it is intended to be this way. (purely just personal preference)
Texas Toast: is a mauve nude that looks neutral and effortless – I noticed it looks different on different people as it has come off a little more purple on others and a little more nude on some. Overall, I initially thought it was more of a statement colour however, it is very wearable for day to day use.
