Tarte Lip Service - Limited-Edition LipSurgence Collection

With my Cyber Monday 20% off offer, I ordered a few goodies, including the tarte Lip Service Limited-Edition LipSurgence Collection.  The collection includes 5 full-sized (3g) LipSurgence pencils in: Glitzy, Perky, Swank, Flashy, and Dazzled.

Typically these pencils retail for $24 each so this set was a bargain at $29 and 20% off.  These shades go on nicely with a nice sheer color and shine.  I love the twist-up feature as it means I don't have to lug a sharpener around for these.  The 5 shades are great, even for a dark-lip-averse girl like me.

When it comes to perfecting the classic Hollywood kiss, leading ladies know a bold lip is sure to steam up the silver screen and this limited-edition LipSurgence™ collection pays tribute to some of the most iconic shades seen on Tinseltown’s most adoring smiles.
Whether for your mother, sister or friend (or for yourself!), you're sure to be the star this gift-giving season thanks to the superb variety of shades in this pout-perfecting set. Inside the sparkling silver giftable box are two LipSurgence™ natural lip tints (for a natural flush that will stay all day) in perky (a soft carnation pink tint) and swank (a satin light cherry tint) and three LipSurgence™ natural lip lusters (for a high dose of glossy color and shine) in flashy (a bright iridescent fuchsia), dazzled (a pearly coral pink) and glitzy (a luminous antique pink). Like all tarte LipSurgence™ lip tints, each emotive shade smoothly glides on lips for natural color that lasts all day and delivers a surge of moisture on a cellular level for a naturally plumped-up appearance while natural peppermint adds a refreshing burst of flavor with each application. A look back to the golden age is the best look this Holiday, so feel like a starlet and blow a kiss as you travel back in time to an era where glamour was paramount, the kisses were in the rain and the pouts were perfect.
