REVIEW: TARTE - Double Dose Berry Boost & Gloss

Fresh from Tarte's Spring 2008 Health Couture Collection, these lippies are beauty and treatment in one. Deliciously scented and flavored with peppermint oil (soothing to lips), its reminiscent of childhood memories of that first squirt of flavor from Fresh-N-Up or Wrigley's Double Mint gums.

These glosses are loaded with good for your lips ingredients. Boasting a t5 super fruit complex™ and high pigmentation in the inner core, and mixing with the super smooth gloss shine of the outer core, the result is a rich color that helps rejuvenate the lips. I like the applicator for this gloss as well; an angled kind of doe-foot with the "mixed" product coming from the center of the tip. You can adjust the pigmentation of the gloss by where you squeeze the tube (bottom for more pigment, middle for less, etc)

Good for the earth too!
Why? Well, with the purchase of every Tarte Double Dose Berry Boost & Gloss, you’ll be helping to preserve the Amazon Rainforest through forest conservation, improved living conditions and educational opportunities for communities in Brazil.

  1. Actually, peppermint oil is a skin irritant and does nothing to soothe lips. Most ingredients that make your lips tingle--peppermint, cinnamon oil, eucalyptus, etc.--are irritating. The colors are lovely, but I wouldn't buy them. If they are marketing their product as "soothing to lips," then they are not being truthful.
