Company’s Description

A vivacious coral shade of Tarte glamazon™ Pure Performance 12-hour Lipstick inspired by the Aqualillies. Make a splash with this vibrant coral hue inspired by America’s most glamorous synchronized swimming group! Aqualillies reinvent the classic art of water ballet and mesmerize audiences with their modern strength and vintage beauty. These true Tartelettes—fearlessly powerful, healthy, real women—are the perfect muses for this high-performance, splash-proof collaboration.

A unique blend of emollient-rich butters (mango, avocado, and shea) and high-performance Amazonian clay is encapsulated in this proprietary natural formula to achieve rich, vivid, and long-wearing color that applies smoothly and won’t fade away. Always hydrating and never drying, this high-cushion lipstick keeps lips moisturized all day long, minimizes the appearance of fine lines, and stops feathering in its tracks to give lips a perfect, plumped-up look. Take a dip into the Aqualillies world with a bold-statement lip thanks to this 12-hour wear, clay-infused lipstick. It’s sure to make waves in and out of the pool!

Tarte’s new Aqualillies collection includes a new, limited-edition shade of the company’s Glamazon Pure Performance lipstick in the shade Timeless–a bright reddish pink.

Packaging: 9/10

This lipstick comes in a long tube made of wood and decorated in the color that matches the lipstick shade inside.

Quality: 9.5/10

Timeless is an incredibly bold, bright, opaque orange-red shade. Tarte describes this color as a reddish pink, but there’s no pink tone to it.

The formula is very creamy while still being on the thin side. Though the texture glides onto the lips smoothly and evenly, it’s not super moisturizing. What makes this lipstick different from others is the hint of clay texture it has.

Unlike this lipstick formula in the shade Pure, Timeless is very long-wearing. It keeps its color for a good three (3) hours before needing touching-up. As a bonus, this bold color leaves a stain behind on the lips, giving you the benefit of a translucent orange-red tint on the lips for a few hours after the lipstick has come off.

I think Tarte’s claims about this lipstick formula are still over-reaching, but this is, nevertheless, an impressive lipstick by almost any standard.

Ease of Use: 9.5/10

The formula glides over the lips without tugging or skipping but the strong nature of this color means you have to apply it a little more slowly.

Price: 6.75/10

For $26.00 you get 0.07 ounces of product. This is less than the average amount of product you get in a lipstick, at an above-average cost. For example, Too Faced’s La Crème lipsticks cost $21.00 and contain 0.11 ounces. Stila’s Color Balm Lipsticks cost $22.00 and contain 0.12 ounces.

  1. Carrie A. says:

    I love this color, but with my budget I can’t justify spending that much on a single lipstick. Are there any dupes you know of, or even something very similar?
