Editor's TipEditor's Tip

All the tint shades go on semi-sheer, and you can layer on several coats for buildable color.

Birchbox Breakdown

It took us a while to learn how to draw inside the lines, but our childhood addiction to coloring books is finally paying off. These user-friendly chubby lip pencils are a goofproof way to lasting, moisturizing color. A cross between a stain and a gloss, each gel-based tint goes on sheer yet stays true for hours. The wearable shades include peaceful, a beige-toned neutral tint; lucky, a soft pink matte tint; and joy, a juicy peach tint. Naturally, our favorite is amused, a bright fuchsia tint.

How it Works

These lip pencils may look cute, but they’re backed by serious ingredients. Made with patented LipSurgence™ technology, they’re clinically proven to boost moisture levels within our lips. In addition, vitamins C and E protect lips against line-causing free radicals, while jojoba seed oil is a proven skin-smoother. An infusion of cooling peppermint oil heals chapped irritation. And rest assured: the formula doesn’t contain harmful ingredients like parabens, mineral oil, or sodium lauryl sulfate.

How to Use

Glide the blunt pencil over your lips (no need to fret about being too precise). When you want to release more pigment, just twist the base counterclockwise—no pencil sharpener necessary.

too dry looking

I really wanted to like this lip tint in lucky, but it's too difficult for me to wear. Maybe another color would have been better for me, but the soft pink of lucky looks completely unnatural, like pepto-bismol pink, and settles in the creases of my lips and makes them look super dry (not like matte dry, like peeling lips dry). I have tried exfoliating my lips before using this and wearing it over and under balm, but I still end up with my lips looking so dry with weird pink creases around them. I had to toss it, which is sad because I normally really like tarte products.

great color payoff

i don't usually like matte lipsticks but this one didn't feel drying on my lips, although it was definitely matte. the color stayed on for hours and left a strong stain so that i did not have to re-apply. i'm definitely going to buy more now.

perfect!

i received the color 'joy' and i love it. it's moisturizing and long lasting - two things i look for in lip products. it's easy to apply and i love that it's a twist-up.

Smooth lips..

I have to say, I was not convince when I saw it was a lip stain or lip gloss for that matter. I dislike wearing lip stains they tend to dry my lips out and lip gloss can be too much at times. Then Tarte Peaceful blew me away. Peaceful is a pink/nude color that I just love. I can wear this all day and my lips will not feel dry at all. I actually feel my lips softer. Definitely, one of my favorite products.

Love the idea

I liked the color and I like the brand's mission, but I felt that it was too dry on my lips. I put it on and was immediately reaching for a moisturizing lip balm to put on over it. I felt like I was putting on lip balm every 10 minutes to counteract the effect this had on my lips. If they make it more moisturizing, I would definitely buy it.

This is my top five of favorite things I've gotten from birchbox.

It feels amazing on and looks great. I've had the sample for literally a year and I use it frequently. You just don't need a lot. It's great!

lip stain

This is a great lip stain with a great formula that it has; only thing is that I don't believe that it stays on very long and when the moisture of the lip stain runs out by being on your lips its gets a dry chapped remaining look on your lips.

Great lip tint

A fun bright pink that doesn't look insane on, and lasts all day? Amazing. The glossy but not sticky feel is ideal for anytime and lasts a good couple of hours before needing reapplication

Favorite Lip Tint Ever

I'm not one to wear a lot of color on my lips. I usually just grab my chapstick and run out the door. but i got this tarte lip tint in my box and i love it so much that i now own 5 different shades. It is so light you just get enough color to add a little pop. great brand - great product.

Nice matte lip color.

I actually owned this before getting it in the box. I like matte lip colors, and this works nicely without being too bright. It can be too drying in the winter, but good for the summer!
