I have to admit I don't know if it is just me, but I am not over the moon about the Tarte Deluxe Amazonian Butter Lipstick Set.
It comes with 4 deluxe sized lipsticks and is $21.
It is part of the Tarte 2015 Holiday Collection.
It is available at Ulta and Sephora.
The shades are in Bellini, Mimosa, Punch, and Sangria.
They are pretty, don't get me wrong, but...
I found them of course to be buttery. They look and feel like a gloss to me.
They are pigmented somewhat but I find that they give more of a wash of color.
This is great if that is what your going for, but for me I like my lipsticks to pack a punch.
You can build them up though to be more pigmented, but I still can't get over the texture. I just feel like I am wearing a gloss.
This does make them hydrating and moisturizing.

What do you think about the tarte Amazonian Butter Lipsticks? Is it just me?
I have always wanted to try them and am glad I got to. I will use them occasionally. I just don't see them as my go to lipsticks.
I am going to try and use them more and see if my opinion changes.
