When I started my blog a few months ago, I wanted to share with my Nanny to show her what I’ve been up to. When she replied with her thoughts, she said she loved the idea of my beauty blog, and she told me about her go-to products she’d been using for years (mostly Clinique!). She also said that she thought all the products I was using were fun and exciting. I was so touched by her email, I wanted to get her something fun and exciting for her 90th birthday.
This year I’ve been so in love with the products from Tarte Cosmetics, that when I saw the packaging on the Amazonian Butter Lipsticks, I knew it was the perfect gift for my Nanny. I went into Sephora and swatched all 9 colours on my hand before choosing Watermelon for myself and Pink Peony for her. I thought it would be fun if we reviewed these lipsticks together!

I have been loving my lipstick and wearing it non-stop for the past few weeks. Its very hydrating, and feels more like a lip balm than a traditional lipstick. It’s a pretty sheer formula, which I think is perfect for every day usage. I really like to wear this to work for just a simple wash of colour, it isn’t too bold for the office. The packaging is really gorgeous, each of the lipstick come in a cardboard tube that is decorated in a colourful floral pattern. They’re all so pretty, it’s hard to choose!
I asked Nanny if she could let me know her thoughts, and she said she loved the colour I picked for her, it goes on smoothly and it has really great staying power. (All of which I agree with!!) I’m so glad to hear she loved the lipstick!

I really think this is a great lipstick. It retails for $20 at Sephora and Tarte.com, which I think is a fair price. I actually picked up a second colour since I liked it so much (read my Tarte haul here!), and I’ve talked a few friends into purchasing, and they’re also loving these lipsticks!
Have you tried the Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipsticks before? What’s your go-to colour?
