Tarte LipSurgences: Better than Drugstore Options?

I went on a trip to Europe with my school and scheduled this post, but apparently, it never posted. I'm going to post the two that I intended to go up while I was gone now - sorry there hasn't been content here for a while (although it still says I posted it on the 11th of June when I intended it to go up)! 

Before products like Revlon Kissable Balm Stains and Maybelline Baby Lips hit the drugstore, one of a girl's main options for sheer, moisturizing color were LipSurgences from Tarte. Now that you can purchase a similar product from Revlon at the drugstore for $8.99 versus Tarte's steep price of $24, when is it best to save instead of splurge?

1. Want a bright, matte lip for summer?
Revlon's new range of colorful matte lip crayons boasts striking red shades and fun pinks and purples. The range is definitely worth taking a look at if you're interested in donning a bold pout in the warmer months.

2. More into matte neutrals?
Although there are wearable pink shades in Revlon's collection of matte balms, if you're looking for a nude or beige 'my lips but better' shade, you might not find what you're looking for in the drugstore. If you don't, Tarte's collection of matte lip crayons might be a good place to look, as it contains many shine free, wearable neutrals.

3. If shimmer's your thing, take a glance at Tarte's glittery options.
Fever and Pouty are high shine balms with beautiful reflective specks that catch the light and make lips look plump and full. If you fancy a neutral shade that glistens, the Tarte chubby stick with the same name is a great option. Just look for the LipSurgences with the sparkly packaging!

4. If you like your lip pencil to have a satin, slightly shiny finish, Revlon's original Kissable Balm Stains might fit the bill.
With a variety of shades from peachy nude to shocking pink to pale lilac, you're likely to find at least one lip pencil that suits your fancy. The original formula that took the drugstore by storm is moisturizing, chuck it on without a mirror and it still looks good color. An oldie, but a definite goodie.

What's your favorite line of moisturizing lip products? Let me know in the comments below.
