Tarina Tarantino Gem Gloss Review


Tarina Tarantino Gem Gloss ($19) What it is:
An ultralight, high-shine, low-tack gloss that delivers true, even color.

What it does:
Achieve a full-bodied lip look with medium-intensity pigment suspended in this silky, hydrating formula. Special emollients encapsulate water to keep lips supple while plumping spheres work to draw water into lips for a smooth, voluminous effect. An infusion of exfoliant enhances cell turnover to promote fresh softness.

My Thoughts:

I was was not impressed with this gloss. The gloss is quite sheer and thin, and I had to layer on so much for the color to be the same as it is in the tube.  I don’t like the wand/applicator either. It’s flexible so it was more difficult to apply. What I liked about the Gem Gloss is it’s non-sticky and the colors offered are so gorgeously different. I wouldn’t recommend Gem Gloss to anyone. There are drugstore glosses that are better quality. The poor performance was unexpected from a high end brand.

I used Tarina Tarantino Gem Gloss in my Spring Time Look: Bold Blue Eyes. I had to layer on at least 3 layers to get the color I achieved.

    I bought the glosses in three colors; bobby pin, my pretty and disco nap. I love them all and feel that this is a unique gloss unlike any others on the market. It feels so good on my lips and love the light flavor. I love that its not sticky and plumps. I do agree that the wand is different, but it didnt bother me. I love your blog it rocks!

    Jeannie – i’m so glad you were able to enjoy the glosses. i guess they are just so different from the glosses i am used to. i do like that the colors that are available are quite different from other brands. they are vibrant and bold.
