I purchased this Tarte set of four mini Color Splash lipsticks when I noticed it on sale recently. It is a limited-edition set, that I know you can still find (at least for a little while) on the tarte site. Full-size Color Splash lipsticks are also available and hopefully here to stay, in a few different finishes (including shade-shifting).
Mermaid Kisses is a cute, colorful little set of mini lipsticks. The actual lip colors are universal, staple shades (even though the tubes are bright). And, the mini size makes them super portable.
I like that tarte chose to go bright with these lipstick tubes, each in a different plastic ‘marbled’ color. What fun! Here are the lip shades:
- Margs—(bubblegum pink tube) a medium, warm nude:
Margs is light enough to wear during the day, and particularly great for the warmer months (or for vacation days).
- Soaked—(violet purple tube) a mauve burgundy:
I really like this cool-toned purple/red. Soaked is in the family of shades that is are go-to for me.
- Jetset—(robin’s egg blue tube) a deep cranberry:
Jetset is even darker than Soaked. It’s more of a true cranberry. Again, a lovely shade.
- Sandals—(aqua green tube) a mid-tone warm red
I usually select red lipsticks on the cool range of the color but even though Sandals is warm in tone I think it I can still get away with wearing it for a ‘classic’ makeup look.
And, I bought one full-size Color Splash lipstick:
- Yachting—(tropical waters blue tube) a cool blackberry purple
I actually picked-up Yachting before I got the set of four. Even though it is the color I was most drawn to, I think it verges on being a bit too dark for me. So, I’m glad to also have the other four for a choice of colors.
tarte’s Color Splash lipsticks are:
- 12-hour wear
- made without parabens or phthalates
- dermatologist tested
- moisturizing with shea butter and olive oil

Have a beautiful day, Gorgeous!
