Tarte Purse Your Lips Review and Swatches

The Muse thinks the best value of the season comes tucked in a purple and silver clutch! Tarte Purse Your Lips Limited Edition LipGloss Clutch is the hostess with the mostess when it comes to stashing away not 3, not 5, not even 6....but 9 glosses!

If you're looking for a nice little luxe gift to give someone special this is honestly a super little kit (but then again you know you're so keeping this for yourself!). I couldn't resist it's evil lure for long and now it's mine, mine, mine! This is one of the only gloss sets I've seen with so much choice available. Most gloss gift sets include 5 or at the most 6 mini glosses where as the Tarte Purse Your Lips includes 9 shade selections! Sweet! The Muse likey variety! Remember she thinks it's the spice of life!

I'm normally a big supporter of Tarte's standard purple quilted packaging but I was actually pleasantly surprised by how much I liked the new gold and purple design. The clutch the glosses come stashed in is quite a nice, heavy clutch with a snap front closure, a hard shell, and a croc-like feel. It's a welcome addition to my holiday wardrobe and great for toting around to holiday parties and such! Honestly half the price tag is well worth the clutch alone as it's a nice quality item.

The glosses tucked inside range from reds, to shimmering golds, to browns, and clears...a little something for everyone is included and I can't honestly say any shade didn't work for me! They are all quite gorgeous and pigmented too! The glosses are tiny so don't expect full size or normal standard mini sizes, they are cute little pocket friendly pieces. I actually don't mind the size in the least as I have so many glosses already that these are nice to tuck into my purse for touch ups and I'm not worried about whether or not I'll be able to use it all up.

Breaking down the price of $39 USD you're looking at $4.33 USD per a gloss....I think the glosses themselves, taking size into consideration, are worth about $3.50 USD so the Muse says throw the change in for the cute clutch and I think it's well worth it's price tag.

If you love Tarte you're so going to want it! If you have a cosmetic junkie in your life it's an ideal gift or if you're just wanting to expand your growing gloss collection then the Tarte Purse Your Lips Lipgloss Clutch Gift Set is definately for you!

The Muse Approves it for purchase! She thinks it's cute, chic, and has tons of variety...variety is always approved by this Muse! Likey!

Did you already grab one of these?

Want to get one?

Spill it to the Muse!

I didn't bother to pick up this item b/c I read the glosses weren't very pigmented. Just goes to show I must depend on the muse for investigating skills! I agree about the tiny size of the glosses. I would definately rather have more choice over bigger sizes. Did you see the CK gloss set though? I happen to see it in Sephora and those looked so tiny!

hiya sherry!

They are pretty pigmented...but they aren't as emollient as I'd have liked but I overlooked that because of the pigmentation :)

I agree with you there..choices are way better than size..especially considering that it takes ages to use one up anyway!

I didn't see the CK gloss set in person and was curious about that. Glad you told me as I was tempted to kinda order online..I'm not quite on the CK bandwagon yet so I was a bit meh about it anyway...!
