Tarte Color Splash Hydrating Lipstick Review (Island Life)

Hey guys!! Today’s review is going to be on one of the most cutest lipsticks that I own, it’s the Tarte color splash hydrating lipstick which was launched as part of their Rainforest of the sea collection. Let’s jump straight into the review!!


What does the brand say about the product?

Long wearing color and moisture-rich full coverage lipstick in 24 creamy shades.

  • Rainforest of the Sea™ complex: a proprietary blend of algae and marine flower extracts that helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while smoothing and softening skin
  • Shea butter: a natural skin emollient that helps retain skin elasticity and protects against degeneration
  • Olive oil: rich in antioxidants to help soothe and restore lips

Product performance: Discover long wearing lip color powered by H2O with this full coverage hydrating lipstick. The ultra-creamy vegan formula combines intense pigments and buttery-smooth conditioners for comfort-swipe color that locks in place with no feathering or bleeding. Make water work for you through each sea-inspired shade infused with regenerative lip-quenchers and the antioxidant Rainforest of the Sea™ complex to help smooth the look of lip lines.



Look how cute this little thing is!! 😍😍 I just love the packaging, it totally complements the theme of the collection “rainforest of the sea”. It comes in a carton with blue and purple accents (which looks pretty too)! This lipstick comes in a beautiful blue marble like packaging. The cap shuts with a click. The twist up is in gold, the blue and gold combination looks stunning!! This is why I said it is the cutest in my lipstick collection! 😘

Shade & Swatch:


This shade is called Island life. The brand describes this shade as a rosy mauve (which is perfect!). But on me it shows hints of peach too. This will suit almost all skintones. It is such a pretty everyday shade. This is my go to lipstick these days. And this is how it looks on me.. 😉


My take on the product:

The pigmentation of the lipstick is great! I have pigmented upper lips, but this lipstick covers it really well. The formula is great too. It is creamy and just glides on the lips. The formula has Shea Butter and olive oil, hence it’s so hydrating on the lips. It lasts for about 4 hours and fades off after that. I don’t mind that, as I don’t have a problem reapplying. I completely love the formula as it’s so comfortable on my dry lips. This lipstick comes in 24 different shades and theres a variety of nudes and a few bright shades. The names given for these lipsticks also complement this sea-inspired line.. like this one which is island life, there is vacay, beach babe, set sail, surfs up etc.. how cute are they named! 😘 I highly recommend these lipsticks.. there are nudes, mauves, berry and a few bright shades. There’s definitely one for everyone. These retail for $21 for 3.4 gm of product. The pricing is the same as other lipsticks in this range of brands. I highly recommend these.. do check them out!!
