TARTE HOLIDAY COLLECTION 2015 – Deluxe Amazonian Butter Lipstick Set

Holiday is just around the corner. Most of the holiday collection have launched for purchase. Just like last year, this year, too, I have been having a hard time going through my wish list. There are so many of them that I want to get. You know.. they are all limited editions! Meaning, if you missed it this year, you may not be able to get them again when they are sold out. Yet, my wallet can’t afford them all.

Anyway, on today’s post, I would like to share my early Christmas haul from Tarte 😀


So, here is my early Haul from the Holiday Collection: Tarte Deluxe Amazonian Butter Lip Set.

The Product

It is a limited edition lipstick collection that Tarte launched this year as part of their Holiday Gift Set Collection. The set features 4 deluxe size of Tarte’s bestselling Amazonian Butter lipsticks.

The quality

  • The texture is creamy
  • semi-balm formula, lightly hydrating
  • lightly shiny formula
  • semi sheer, but the pigment is build-able
  • Has a fresh minty scent
  • Does not last long, due to its creamy formula. The longest is up to two hours, or can be less if you eat or drink; except Sangria, it last to up to 3 hours.
  • As claimed by Tarte, the lipsticks are formulated without:
    • Parabens
    • Mineral oil
    • Phtalates
    • Triclosan
    • Sodium lauryl sulfate
    • Gluten
    • And is dermatologist tested
  • Semi-opaque finish

I would recommend you to exfoliate your lips prior to using these lipsticks, as the texture tended to accentuate any imperfections on the lips.

The Shades

The Tarte Deluxe Amazonian Butter Lipstick comes in 4 new shades:

  • Punch
  • Mimosa
  • Sangria
  • Bellini

Here is the hand swatch


I know that Punch looks like a dark shade from the bullet, but it actually is not. It is a mauve pink shade, which looks like a neutral pink shade on me.


Just like how it looks on the bullet, Mimosa is a peachy nude color.


Hands up everybody! This shade is my  favorite shade from the set. Sangria is a berry red.  The perfect berry shade I have ever encounter so far. I am really in love. I hope they make this shade permanent *cross finger!


Bellini is described as a golden pink, as you can see from the bullet. Fyi, this shades contain glitter.

The Packaging

As the name said it, it is a deluxe size lipsticks. The Deluxe Amazonian Butter Lipstick Set is packaged in a square box with a matching design with the other Tarte Holiday Collection 2015.

At the front side of the box, it features the pictures of the four lipsticks inside, so you can see what you are getting. On the back side is the description of the ingredients.

For the lipstick itself, it is packaged in a cardboard tube, just like the full-sized versions. The bullet is quite narrow, but I don’t have any issues with it.

As for the size, as the name said it, it is a deluxe size lipstick; therefore, it is very travel friendly.

The Price

Originally, it costs $21USD; in Indonesia, it costs Rp 400,000.-

The Stores

Unfortunately, it is not available in Indonesia, as Sephora Indonesia does not sell any Holiday Collections at all. If they have Gift Set, they just repackaged the currents products they have for you like a parcel. Luckily, we have online stores on Instagram & Websites that sell them – Stock Ready & Pre-Order. Here is the list:

Odette Cosmetic
