Skin Tone: Medium to Dusky
Hope you all are doing great. I wanted to try Tarte Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paints for a long time. So, when they launched their mini set, I quickly grabbed one. The shade I am going to review today is called Fomo. And, *spoiler alert*, this is a wonderful lipstick. In fact, I love it so much that I have been wearing it pretty much every day. Read on to find out how Fomo became my favourite lip color.
Paint on pigment to create a tarteist™ lip masterpiece with this full coverage, l ongwearing liquid lipstick with a lightweight, moussey texture and a non-drying, matte finish.
The ultra-pigmented, vegan friendly formula comes in an array of on-trend bold and everyday shades with a custom precision wand that luxuriously glides over lips before drying down to a sophisticated, velvet matte finish.

My Experience with Tarte Fomo Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint:
This liquid lipstick comes in a clear tube with a black cap. The name of the product and brand are printed on the packaging in a golden font. The shade name is mentioned at the bottom of the tube. The doe foot applicator is very precise and facilitates application of the product.
You know how difficult it is to find a perfect mauve-pink nude if you have a tanned skin tone? My search for the perfect pinky nude has ended with this shade. Fomo is described as a mauve colour by Tarte but I’d call it a muted pinkish colour with a mauve undertone. It is one perfect colour for all skin tones. It has a lovely minty smell, too.
The formula of Tarte lip paints is quite interesting. This formula is not like that of other regular liquid lipsticks. The lipstick is more like a cream; it as a thick mousse consistency and feels as though we are applying a cream on the lips. It spreads easily and takes a little time to dry down. It doesn’t dry down completely, so it is not transfer proof.
It offers a good coverage and insane pigmentation. It does not appear streaky and goes on opaque in just one swipe. It is not a true matte lipstick; it is more like a satin, powdery-matte finish. But it looks great on the lips, just like a true matte liquid lipstick. The formula and performance are not like Kat Von D or ColourPop liquid lipsticks. Tarte lip paints are nicer and better.
It stays around 8 hours on my lips. It does survive meals and may start to fade a little after some time, but then it can be easily reapplied. It leaves a beautiful stain on the lips. Since it does not dry down to a complete dead matte finish, it feels very hydrating and comfortable on the lips. Also, it doesn’t cling to dry patches. It feels very lightweight, and it’s almost like having nothing on my lips. This is my favourite part!
I think this shade is a close match of Stila Patina Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick and
Kat Von D Mother Everlasting Liquid Lipstick. So overall, I think that this is not your regular classic liquid lipstick. It is more like a lip mousse which hydrates the lips, feels lightweight and doesn’t dry down to a complete matte finish. It is like a beautiful break from the regular, drying liquid lipsticks.
