Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Lip Rescue Trio Vol. II

Almost a year ago to the day, I posted about the Tarte Lip Quench Rescue Volume 1 and I have been in love with them ever since. A couple of weeks ago I decided a couple more of the products and with QVC having four easy pays - it had to be done!

Swatched: Coral, Buff & Cherry

I absolutely raved about these in my original review and my thoughts haven't changed, if anything I love them even more! These retail for £17 each from the Tarte Cosmetics website so I do prefer to buy these from QVC as it is such a better deal even without the easy pay options as you get three for just under £30 making them £10 each. There are eight shades available in total and I have five of them now, I did have six but I actually finished one! This trio is definitely more suited towards Spring and Summer - this was at least my justification for purchasing.

I was really surprised that I ended up buying these as I don't usually go for anything nude or coral on the lips but I have been really surprised with how much I love the shades. The shades included in this volume are Coral (a light coral), Buff (a warmer toned nude) and cherry (a slightly more vibrant pink). All of shades of the Quench Lip Rescue's look super intense in the bullet but on the lips, these are incredibly sheer but I actually really like that about them. For work and day to day, I don't like bold lips a lot of the time and I'm always finding myself wearing lip balms so it's the best of both worlds. Even though they are sheer, they do add a tint of colour and some shades have better colour pay off than others, like Cherry and Berry.

The packaging is absolutely stunning, I always love Tarte's packaging, and each of the tubes has gorgeous under the sea illustrations to fit with the Rainforest of the Sea collection. I mentioned in my original review that I wasn't a massive fan of the cardboard packaging as I thought it would get damaged easily when being kept in your handbag or makeup bag. However, having been using these for a year now I have to say I haven't had any issues whatsoever! I have a small crossbody bag which has everything thrown in and I have at least two of these in my bag at one time and they haven't gotten damaged in the slightest. 

These are like a drink of water for the lips and I love the glossy finish they leave on the lips. These are by far one of my favourite lip balms, they are my firm favourite for tinted options for sure. They melt into the lips as you apply them and they have a smoothing effect on the lips which I'm obsessed with! They don't last for more than a couple hours on the lips but I just can't get enough of them.
