The aforementioned @tartecosmetics
Rainforest of the Sea ColorSplash Lipstick swatches. They aren't quite as similar as I'd initially suspected but they're close enough for those without an overly discerning eye. #SetSail
was in this month's @sephora #PlayBox
was from a previous gift set. Both are creamy, are reasonably opaque, and really pretty. I am on strike from purchasing from @tartecosmetics
for the foreseeable future but if you like these, they're available @sephora
In case anybody cares, I'm mad at Tarte for the way that they handled a problem I had with their site during their sale. Their website froze while I was checking out with my 6 piece BYO set (6?) and they charged my card but never processed my order. I emailed them immediately asking for a confirmation number, as I had purposely woken up early that day to MAKE SURE that I could get what I wanted before it sold out. If you recall, that sale was no refund/no returns so I didn't want to reorder in case my purchase did actually go through, I didn't want doubles of everything. They took a couple of days to respond and when they did, they refunded me. I then told them that I didn't want a refund, I wanted the items I'd ordered, and they essentially said "too bad, that was a limited time offer, sucks to be you." I checked their site and everything I'd wanted was still in stock separately and I wrote them saying hey, I don't care about the bag just send me the items and they never bothered to respond. So I've been boycotting Tarte ever since. It's not a big loss, really, there are tons of other options and I have everything I need from them anyway. I just need to find a new concealer to replace the Maracuja concealer I have been using and repurchasing from them for years now. I have a lifetime supply of their blushes and that's about the only thing they make (besides my concealer and mascara) that is worth having. So, NBD, I just won't be buying from them. I value good customer service as I work too damn hard for my money. They won't miss me, they don't care so forget 'em.
