Tarte Namaste Dupe


I love a good liquid lipstick, I mean who doesn’t? But one of my favorites, Tarte’s Tarteist Lip Paint in Namaste, dried out *cries*

I know there are dupes out there, but I’m trying to shop my stash more and more. So I decided to pull out every liquid lipstick I have that looked similar.

*Pictured in order are across the top, Tarteist Lip Paint in Namaste, then from Left to Right: Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Antwerp, the Balm Meet Matt(e) Hughes, Tarteist Lip Paint in Birthday Suit, Tarteist Lip Paint in Delish, Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm, Nyx Lip Lingerie in Ruffle Trim , and Stila Stay All Day in Perla.

Here’s a more close up pic. I think the second from the left is closest. That one’s The Balm’s Meet Matte Hughes


What do you think? Which is the closest to my fave Namaste?

Are there any other products that could be a dupe? Let me know in the comments.


Maybelline Super Stay 24 Lip Color


I received the Maybelline Super Stay 24 Color Vox Box, and it has been pleasantly surprising!

I don’t like longwear lip stains, or liquid lipsticks, so imagine how excited I was when I tried these…AND LOVED THEM!

I was sent the colors Constant Toast and Keep Up The Flame, and I loved them so much, I bought More and More Mocha.

The directions say to use the pigment first, let it sit for 2 minutes (it doesn’t need that long), and then go over your lips with the balm on the opposite side of the stick. Let me tell you, it’s fantastic! They don’t dry out, they don’t crack, and unless you eat something oily (I ate a salad with olive oil and vinegar), it won’t come off when you eat!

It does say to use an oil based cleanser or makeup remover to remove it, but my normal makeup remover wipes worked, and so did Micellar Water.

These lasted from about 7:30 am until around dinner time, so for me 5:30. That’s a super long time to go with only touching up the balm (sometimes I cheated and only used my chapstick).

My final verdict:

These are absolutely worth the $8 or so that they cost, and usually you can find a Maybelline coupon. You can’t beat that price for the quality of lip product you’re receiving. I can’t stress enough how much I hate long wear lip products, and how much I love this one.
