I think I’ve found a new red lipstick bae…and she happens to be named the shade “Bae” by Tarte Cosmetics. It’s their “Tarteist™ Creamy Matte Lip Paint”. It’s a blue-based red lipstick (my favorite kind of red), and it is basically the equivalent of Coloured Raine’s “Cherry Blossom” lipstick. Although Cherry Blossom was my bae, she tears up my lips something fierce! Tarte’s “Bae” is much gentler on my lips, and I find it to be a better formula. It doesn’t “crumble” like Cherry Blossom and it lasted alllll day. I highly recommend it.
Here’s the packaging:
Here’s how it looked by the end of the day:
What’s funny is that I purchased a dark shade of this lipstick in the past (I believe it was the shade “Frenemy”)…and I hated how it applied and it did not last. So, I really lucked up this time with “Bae”. Thank goodness, because I was a bit bummed that the Coloured Raine’s Cherry Blossom was my absolute favorite shade, but I did not want to further contribute to jacking up my already very dry lips! So, I had to sacrifice by wearing an almost great red lipstick, but not being satisfied. However…Bae came to the rescue! 🙂
