True Blood LipSurgence by Tarte

When I found out that my two favorite things were going to be
combined I almost died!!
Tarte LipSurgence and True Blood!!
SHUT UP!!!!!!!!
I snatched this bad boy from Sephora as soon as it
debuted! It arrived today with some other goodies.
The price tag for this limited edition and all other LipSurgence products is
a hefty $24 which in my opinion is high but worth it.
Product description taken from Sephora.

What it is:
Rehydrate with this mint-infused, iridescent red shade of Tarte's limited-edition LipSurgence™ Natural Lip Tint, inspired by the hit HBO® series True Blood™.

What it does:
Experience love at first taste with Tarte's LipSurgence™ Natural Lip Tint, inspired by the hit HBO® series True Blood™. It's all flavor and no bite with this mint-infused, iridescent red shade that drenches lips in a luminous, long-lasting tint. Tarte's LipSurgence™ technology rehydrates lips by delivering a surge of moisture for a deliciously plumped up appearance. Tune in to the new season of True Blood™, Sundays at 9/8c. Only on HBO®.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Phthalates

This packaging makes me happy. I am easily pleased!

Lips with flash
Natural Light
So far I have read mixed reviews on this LipSurgence.
Quite a few people think it is not red enough and they expected
a bold true red. If you are familiar with LipSurgence you know
they are a lip tint, not a lipstick or stain. They all have a
sheerness to them. I think this LipSurgence gives a nice
just bitten look or kissed look.

I personally feel clownish in true reds so this is perfect for me!

Are you buying anything from the Tarte True Blood collection?
Have you tried LipSurgence?
What do you think about them??

Thanks for reading


  1. It looks very nice on you! I'm personally not keen on sheer lips but that does have a nice natural sexy 'flush' look to it :P

  2. This looks really nice. I am a huge fan of True Blood. Love Eric lol. I've never tried any Tarte stuff must keep and eye out.

  3. I just have to say, this is amazing! I don't think I could ever have enough True Blood gear!

    As for the color, I think it's a great balance. Not too sheer that it's almost non-existent, but not eye-poppingly bright.

  4. I'm just waiting for my Sephora store to get it! I'm so happy that you did a post on it - Just makes me want it even more. I'm also eyeing that shadow box set, but I might pass (until I see it in stores and possibly fall in love, ha!)
