I got this cute little set from my one of my best friends, Jenn (a.k.a. fellow makeup junkie) and thought I’d do a review on it! It’s the Tarte Skintuitive Lip & Cheek Set – Energy:

What else you need to know:
LipSurgence is powered by a proprietary blend of plant bionutrients, vitamins, and essential oils rich in emollients. Quickly absorbing into lips delivering a surge of moisture, it supports the production of collagen and peptides and effectively increases your skin’s water-content for a plumped-up appearance along with a natural taste of mint. The result is naturally fuller, healthier lips without any irritation or stinging.
What I love about this duo is its’ ease of application and that it provides a natural, no-brainer makeup look! The packaging is so mini and cute and is great for popping in your makeup bag (or even your pocket!).
Shade-wise, this duo provides a classic pink flush to my cheeks and to my lips. I have a medium skintone and once applied, the blush sets on me to look like I just finished a workout or have come inside from a brisk, wintery walk; the lip balm sets on my lips with a natural pink tone that slightly enhances the pink in my lips. Just a very natural “no-makeup makeup” effect.
The cheek stain applies smoothly. I dab the applicator onto the applies of my cheeks to get a good amount of pink and simply use my fingers to swirl the blush on my cheeks and upwards, or use a beauty blender. It leaves a skin-like, dewy finish. Doesn’t feel sticky or tacky. I love using this blush tint over a foundation that is matte or demi-matte on my skin because it takes away the “flatness” that a matte base can leave — adds some dimension and dewiness back into my face.
The lip tint applies easy and smooth as well. Just a couple swipes of this across my lips is enough to give me a good amount of hydration and colour. Definitely a buildable colour, but I prefer it subtle on me. A bit of a ‘minty’ feel, you know the kind in some lip products that tingle? But nothing overwhelming or uncomfortable.
Currently, I have this tucked away in my makeup bag — such a handy little set to carry around for any touchups in case I need.
I give the Tarte Skintuitive Lip & Cheek Set – Energy: a HIGH FIVE
