Yesterday, I received another unexpected package from my generous benefactress. Again, she shouldn’t have done it, but she knows that I love the quality and the adorable girly packaging from the Tarina Tarantino makeup brand!
This time, she sent me an adorable lipgloss. I love limited edition “original packaging”: the pink handle of the wand and the bow on the tube. So cute <3
The shade that she sent, My Pretty, is a soft peachy-pink (my shade!) with a soft shimmer.
It’s an MLBB shade that coordinates so beautifully with the lighter pink wand handle. I just love looking at the tube! The slightly pointed applicator has an angled neck that makes it so easy to apply. It has a beautiful glossy shine.
The gloss has a fruit candy scent that the Tarina Tarantino website describes as “peach sorbet”. It’s a pleasant scent, but it immediately disappears once on my lips. The gloss goes on easily and smoothly. It’s so hydrating! It doesn’t feel sticky on, but I am aware that it’s there (in a good way). It stays on for quite a while. I just ate dinner, and though it doesn’t show up like it did before dinner, I can still feel it hydrating my lips.
The TT website also says that it is lip plumping, but it doesn’t contain the dreaded peppermint oil, yay! So that’s a double plus for me 😛
Tarina Tarantino Gem Gloss comes in 8 beautiful shades (though all may not be available), about half with shimmer and half a traditional gloss. The tube contains 4 ml. Tarina Tarantino Gem Gloss is priced at $19. It’s available on beauty.com, ebay and the Tarina Tarantino website.
Have you tried any of the Tarina Tarantino Gem Glosses?
