Matte lipstick lovers know that their favorite finish often comes at a price. Namely, dried out lips that need a thick coating of lip balm ASAP. Most of us considered it a fair trade off for the gorgeous matte finish, but now we no longer have to settle. Tarte Cosmetics has recently launched the Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash Hydrating Lipstick ($21) range that promises a matte finish with moisturizing properties.
The hydrating lippy collection includes 24 easy-to-wear shades including pinks, reds, nudes, browns and burgundies. Like the name states, the lipsticks are part of Tarte’s Rainforest of the Sea collection which features the nourishing properties of algae and marine flower extracts.
The lipsticks have even more hydration packed into them because they’re formulated with shea butter and olive oil. What you end up with is a matte lipstick that’s easy to apply to your lips (read: no tugging here) and a nourished-but-matte finish.
If you want to know what a matte and moisturizing lipstick is like, you can pick up the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash Hydrating Lipstick collection on Tarte’s website right now.
