I’m on the fence about this one. I love the color but its not what I thought it would be. It’s not as opaque as I like my lipstick to be. I have very pigmented lips so I need something that is going to be more than a sheen on my lips. I like the texture of the lipstick now that really worked for me! It wears well during the day and is comfortable on the lips. But I get a short few hours (like 3) of wear before needing a touchup and must touch up after meals and drinks. Oh yeah and after a few hours as this fades-its not pretty. It kind of fades like a bad lip stain. One day in particular I looked like a crazy woman that just ate an orange popsicle.
I feel I need to use a mirror to ensure the desired finished look with this. So if you haven’t noticed already this is a lipstick that I end up babysitting a lot. I was expecting a lipstick that would last longer and frankly do more for me than Revlon’s Orange Flip lipstick since its double the price! Not the case here.
I used an orange liner with this (MUFE Aqua Lip #17C) and had to stop because the liner stood out like a sore thumb because its stronger than this lipstick. So from then on I just used the lipstick by itself. The packaging is amazing and I love that. Overall they hit a home run with presentation. I like a heavy lipstick tube.
I think the lipstick looks great on. What you’ll notice in some of my pictures is that here and there the finish isn’t smooth. It’s a little patchy and I found that to be the case since I began testing this out weeks ago. I still find it hard to smooth this out across the whole surface of my lips. It’s not something that is too noticeable but its there.
Tangerine Tango Lipstick
Overall I think that for $18 you can find something better. I think that there are a few drugstore lipsticks that I’ve come across recently from Revlon and Maybelline that blow this out of the water. Please let me know if you picked Tangerine Tango up, I think there are going to be many people that love this lipstick way more than I do. But for the price when I consider all the babysitting and prep time it’s a disappointment.
