Have you ever gotten something as part of a limited-edition or beauty gift set, fallen in love with it, and then been completely unable to find it ever again? Well, here's a lesson: write letters and call the cosmetics company—tell 'em how you feel. Check this out: New this month, and thanks to popular demand, Tarte is launching LipSurgence, a twist-up lip creme pencil, in "Peaceful," a neutral peachy hue. Previously only available as part of a limited-edition set, this lippy includes the company's signature LipSurgence technology, which is clinically proven to increase lips' moisture content by a staggering 6000% after a month of use.
The lip creme also includes ingredients such as antioxidant Vitamin C, protective Vitamin E, soothing peppermint oil, and softening jojoba oil.
