Company’s Description

A lip tint that delivers a personalized shade of pink and a proprietary blend of plant bionutrients, vitamins, and essential oils. Like all LipSurgence™ lip tints, this one combines pure color with natural moisturizers and glides on smooth for a sheer finish. The ethereal hue complements every skintone to deliver a natural-looking glow and brighter complexion—customized just for you! The skintuitive™ formula responds to your skin’s natural pH and energy, giving you a personalized tint that is truly your own unique shade of pink. Bonus: you can bump up the intensity of the color with an extra swipe.

Tarte’s newest LipSurgence Lip Tint has a “Skintuitive” formula which Tarte claims will develop a personalized tint to fit your skin. The shade for this lip tint is Energy, which is a light pink.

Packaging: 9/10

This lip tint comes in pencil form, which is made of plastic. The cap slides off and the base twists to push up the product inside.

Quality: 8.5/10

First, the whole “tint to match your skintone” in some personalized manner is gimmicky and not really accurate. The shade Energy will deepen in the first couple of seconds after application, but there’s nothing “intuitive” about the shade to make it match your skin tone specifically. You get a flush of translucent pink color to tint your lips and a glossy finish.

The formula of this lip product is soft and emollient, bringing moisture to the lips and helping seal it in. Unlike the other colors in the LipSurgence line, though, you don’t get as much of a benefit from the color staining the lips, since it’s translucent and close to the natural color of your skin.

Overall, I think this is a nice product, but am underwhelmed. It seems to be a fancy lip balm with a bit of tint to it.

Ease of Use: 9.75/10

The formula glides over the lips effortlessly and the translucent color makes application simple.

Price: 8.5/10

For $24.00 you get 0.1 ounces of product. Compared to other lip pencils, you get a standard amount of product for a higher-than-average price.
