Rated 4 out of 5 by Jackiesupernova Pleasantly surprised
Bought these on a whim as they looked great on the models with darker skin during the presentation. These are definitely full coverage and easy to apply. I sometimes apply without a mirror and it goes on just fine. 4 stars because the colour doesn't last as long after application especially if you eat something. But generally really good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ladyfinger1 Finally!
I have searched in vain for years for a nude lip colour to suit my skin tone which is a tan/olive complexion. Finally the search is over(hence the title)!
The lip colours that are usually sold as 'nude' by various make-up brands are usually too pale for those of us of a coloured complexion, and makes us look like we have ghostly pale lips(not a good look..). So ladies, if like me you are of an olive complexion and have been frustrated and have wasted money in the past looking for a nude lip colour, then snap these up fast!
I think Lippie Lingerie is a perfect name because these are very natural colours, the kind you could wear around the house, to go to the shops, or if you prefer the natural look at work. They are more of a lip tint that you can layer a few times rather than a heavy matte lipstick type.
'Bare' is slightly darker than my natural lip colour, a slightly brown colour.
'Envy' is an exact match to my lips a light berry colour.
'Whisper' is a bit pale for me but I can use it over some of my darker lipsticks.
They have a slight tingle and longer lasting than others I have used. As I write this, I applied 'Bare' at 3pm and it is still going strong at 6pm after a hot drink, a couple of glasses of water and some snacks.
I was keen to change my lip colours to Tarte as it does not contain a number of chemicals that I was concerned about in most make-up products, and applying anything to lips means you are likely to ingest it.
Thank you Tarte and QVC for bringing this. Also thank you to the lady who wrote the very first (by date) review which encouraged me to buy it. I should add I have not had any problems with bits breaking off. Just wish that this could be a wind up kind of pencil so that it would last longer because I don't want to run out of these. I hope they'll be brought back in other kits.
It might be worth , in future, bringing out kits in which there are options with different colours for those with paler skin tones and darker skin tones, so that everyone is catered for.

Rated 2 out of 5 by nikyred Not as good as Lipsurgence
Like a previous reviewer one of my crayons had fallen out & was damaged as a result. I found the colours too dark & I missed the mint 'tingle' of other Tarte lip products. DIsappointed as a huge 'Tarte' fan.

Rated 2 out of 5 by hter tarte lippie lingerie trio
lip crayons came nicely boxed, one of the actual lipstick crayons fell out of the wind up pencil straight away after taking the top off, before i had done anything with it, which is not encouraging.
calling them lingerie colours rather misleading as I was expecting them not to be so dark, one was OK, one was quite dark, the other almost maroon when applied , now I know you can get underwear in any colour ! but from the name and the photos of products they were not what I was expecting. shame as I love tarte lip crayons and mascaras sadly returned.

I have Tan Indian Skin. I like the natural look.
I already know I like this lip formula so this trio is a bargain for me. Every shade in this collection compliments my skin tone.
On my lips:
Wisper looks like a soft natural pink - maybe a 1/2 shade pinker than my natural lips.
Bare (not Racy as listed) is a medium deep brown - about 2-3 shades deeper than my natural lips and more brown
Envy looks like a very complimentary deep pinky berry.
I find they last a long time and is non drying. They all have a semi-matte finish which I prefer. This crayon design easier to apply even when the tip gets rounded.
