I've been using this for almost 2 years and I've been through a love-hate-love relationship with it throughout that time. It's now something I use almost everyday. I have pigmented lips and this color is very close to my lip color (the pink part of it). Because of that and also because it's matte, I use this when I want my lips to be all the same color and look natural.

If I want to look like I'm not wearing any lip color, I wear this. If I'm wearing a lipstick that is not very long-lasting or that I want to be more true to color, I wear Hope as a base and then apply the lipstick on top. Hope is very long-lasting, so I always have some color on my lips. I wear this while working 12 hour shifts and only have to reapply once after I eat/drink.

The ingredients are very natural... oils plus Vitamin C and E. Free of "parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrance, petrochemicals, and phthalates" so that gets major brownie points from me.

It is a little bit tingly after I put it on. I feel like it plumps slightly at first, but after a while it makes my lips look a bit wrinkly (it is a matte product after all). So I apply a lip balm on top of it. Also, it does have a slight purplish-hue which I wish it did not have. Overall, I really like this product, I just wish the hue was a little bit more pink and it was more moisturizing.

Bought this a few weeks ago after falling in love with another of Tarte's matte lip tints (Lively), but sadly this one wasn't nearly as successful. The color (a sort of dusty nudish plummy pink) is great and I love this product's practical twist-up crayon packaging and mild minty taste, but the formula is so chalky and dry that I'm wondering if I just got a dud. It has just enough slip to apply smoothly across the lips, but it feels stiff and uncomfortably matte on the lip. Very clay like. I don't find any of Tarte's other matte lip tints to be particularly hydrating, despite the product's ambitious claims, but I don't find them particularly drying either. This one feels like it sucks moisture out of my lips and requires me to wear lip balm underneath it which significantly cuts into its wear time. I get maybe 5 hours of wear if I wear it on bare lips, and less than 2 with lip balm.

Like with Lively, I feel like this product is more of a lipstick than a lip tint or a lip stain. It has the texture and opacity of a lipstick and fades like a lipstick. It doesn't stain the lip and it doesn't have any translucency to it so the word "tint" makes no sense for this product.

I like the color of this product enough to keep it, but overall it's a disappointment. $24 is a steep price for a drying matte lipstick of an underwhelming quality.

You know you have too much makeup when you have over 200 reviews and you realized there is something that has been in your stash a while and you haven't reviewed it. I find myself using this shade much more than the regular finish lip surgence which I have in Charmed, and Joy. Hope is a nice medium pink, not too light and not too super bright candy pick. It's a flattering shade with just a slightly warm hints of gold. It's a good daytime/work shade. I really like the touch of mintiness in this.

I am in LOVE with this product! The staying power is great, and I love the feeling it has on your lips! Definitely would repurchase when I run out!

I love this Liptint. Lots of lip products make me breakout in small pimples or blackheads by my lips ( ew) I have to be careful and with this stuff i never have a problem, the colour is so pretty after i bought it my sister went out and bought one for herself. Its also great if your like me and always have dry looking lips even when there not. This is a must buy

I have the tarte matte lip tints in this color and in lucky. Originally I purchased lucky and loved it but felt like it was hardly noticeable on my lips so I went and purchased the color hope. It comes off like a mauve or almost berry tint on me. What was weird was that the consistency of hope was actually kind of chalky and lucky wasn't. I don't know if it was just a fluke or what but I probably wouldn't repurchase. It does leave a nice stain on my lips for several hours and isnt drying but I have to be really in love with a lip product to dish out $24. The lucky one I would repurchase though. It goes on creamy and I have since come to love the natural flush it gives my lips.

I really love this color on me and find the matte finish very flattering. It also lasts a very long time on my lips, even after eating and drinking. Will be buying this again.

I wasn't too keen on this Tarte lip pencil sadly, because they are my go to for many other products. I loved the color, which I get compliments every time (literally, every time) I wear it. It's a beautiful dusty, pinkish plum which compliments my pale skin but I am sure will compliment many others. It also goes on smooth and creamy! What I don't like about this product is that it bleeds, terribly for me, and since it is a darker shade it's obvious and unattractive. It is quite drying, drier than I expected even for a matte formula. It doesn't wear evenly on my lips, and I find builds up on the inside edges of my lips and feels very scummy. My last qualm is that it doesn't include a sharpener, so it's hard to be precise with application when first applying. Wouldn't repurchase NARS and MAC make better matte formulas.

This lip tint came in my Sephora "Give Me Some Lip" set. At first I didn't think I was going to love it because I have another Tarte lip tint in enchanted and didn't love that one. This one, however, is matte which I greatly prefer over the high shine ones. The color is a beautiful plum that I can see flattering every skin tone. It looks gorgeous on my pale skin. The color really complements me and goes well with my complexion. This is one of my favorite lip products I own. It's like a lipstick but better. It's extremely expensive but if I run out I would repurchase.

I use this product everyday as my go to lip color. Having fair skin I find it hard to wear many lip colors without them looking too strong so this was just perfect for me to use on an every day basis. It's highly pigmented, has an amazing finish and has pretty good lasting power. I feel like it fades nicely as well. It's my "your lips but better" favorite.

For a matte lipstick I don't find it drying, I normally apply a lip balm before hand and let it sink in a bit before using this product.

I highly suggest trying one of the colors! They're all gorgeous (:
