Tarte LipSurgence: Escape

Swatches & Review
Yesterday, I swatched the Statement Lips Collector's Set as a whole on my arm. Escape is from the Statement Lips set. I am not sure, but I think Escape is exclusive to this set because I have not seen it around before.
Escape is one of the two LipSurgence that is a Lip Luster, which has a shimmery finish. On the lips, it is a shimmery light pink. It goes on very sheer, so the shade made my lips just a tint lighter, and with shimmer in it. I have gone over it a few times to have the shown a lot better.
Honestly, I was hoping for this to be less sheer than it was. Maybe my expectations for it was a bit high considering how my Revlon Balm Stains are very pigmented. It definitely does not seem to be the case with Tarte because it goes on very lightly. It has a peppermint scent, but it does not bother me. I gave Escape a full wear test yesterday and after about two hours, it wore off. There was no stain left or anything & my lips felt incredibly dry so its claim of "softening and moisturizing lips" was not true to this.

I was pretty disappointed with this shade because it was pretty much just shimmer. Since it was drying to the lips, I recommend using an additional lip balm before it. I think this would be a good shade to put on the top of darker lip colors if you want to give it a little "pop" with shimmer, otherwise, I am not impressed with this shade.


  1. these things suck! revlon > tarte.. can't believe that I have 3 of these tarte thingies

    1. It's too bad these "suck". I really liked the Achiote one I purchased a while back and I was hoping for more with these. :( Oh well.. At least I got a deal on it? lol! I wonder how the Clinique ones are.
