TATCHA SUNRISE: A PLUM BLOSSOM 23-Karat Gold Illuminated Lipstick | Review and Swatches

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)
TATCHA SUNRISE: A PLUM BLOSSOM 23-Karat Gold Illuminated Lipstick is, as I previously stated, so unbelievably gorgeous that I actually gasped as I opened the box in which it was housed. It boasts a level of luxury that was, until now, unseen. The lipstick bullet, itself, is weighty and ultra-luxe with an attention to detail that exceeds all expectations. The lipstick is a gorgeous cool plummy pink that is accentuated by its beautifully faceted shape. This precious gem, that is infused with 23-karat gold, is more like a fine piece of jewelry than a mere tube of lipstick. If ever there was a lipstick to covet, it is this one. 

It glides across the lips with ease, deposits color evenly, and it neither bleeds, nor does it settle into lip lines. Furthermore, it has the perfect amount of cushion, is unbelievably comfortable on the lips, and is moisturizing. It leaves lips soft, supple, hydrated and positively gorgeous. Additionally, the color is the most perfect cool plummy pink, and the 23-karat gold infusion imparts the most delicate ethereal glow. The color is neither too sheer, nor too opaque, and it can definitely be intensified with an additional pass or two. While there is some sheen, it clings to the lips and delivers impressive longevity. I get at least 4 hours of wear-time before needing to reapply, but that is provided that I don't continually rub my lips together to feel and experience its marvelous texture. It is worthy to note that there is no detectable taste or scent that may pose a problem for those among you who prefer fragrance-free lipsticks.

A single look at the list of ingredients makes it abundantly clear that this lipstick is filled with nourishing good-for-you skincare ingredients that you will definitely appreciate having in a lipstick.
If there is one lipstick to buy this year, it is this beauty. The only thing that I would change about it is its Limited Edition status.
According to TATCHA,

This lipstick brings a youthful, cool plum pink blush to lips with a fine hint of 23-karat gold for a creamy, lustrous finish to flatter any complexion, day or night.

Inspired by the iconic pink Japanese Plum Blossom peeking through a snowy Kyoto morning wrapped in golden light. Plum fruit and silk extracts richly hydrate lips.

For all skin tones. Non-irritating. Non-sensitizing. Dermatologist tested.
Unpacking this beautiful box reveals a lovely and thoughtful note from Victoria Tsai!
The attention to detail in every aspect of the packaging is utterly impeccable.
The lipstick tube, itself, is a true work of art.

The bullet is ultra-luxe and weighty.

It closes with a very satisfying click that enhances the experience of its use.

The gorgeous faceted lipstick is almost too beautiful to use, but trust me when i tell you that you will be so overwhelmed by its beauty on your lips that you will quickly get over any guilt associated with actually using this special treasure.
If you are planning on shopping the Barneys New York LOVE Yourself Event next week, I would highly recommend picking up TATCHA SUNRISE: A PLUM BLOSSOM 23-Karat Gold Illuminated Lipstick. You will not regret it!

  1. PSA: Barney's Las Vegas still has these lipsticks in stock. It's OOS online at Barney's and OOS at the Barney's Madison Ave store. I'm not sure about other stores...I was able to score two! One for me and one for a gift :)

    1. Thanks, A! I was told another shipment was heading to BNY Madison, and need to check the Beverly Hills location. Good for you that you were able to score two. They were still available online this morning, and must have sold out this afternoon.

    1. It is worth calling the store to see if they are still in stock siren they sold out online. The Madison store is supposed to be getting a few more in, as I understand it.

    1. Hi Kimberly, they were still available online this morning, but seem to have sold out there. They are expecting more at the Madison Ave. location as I am told. A said that they are still available in Las Vegas, and I am not sure about the Beverly Hills location. I would call to see if you can locate one at one of the store locations. I will let you know if I learn anything else. I sure hope that they have them in stock next week.

    1. Hi Cynthia, It looks as though it sold out online today, because it was available this morning. A said that there are still some available at the Las Vegas store, and I was too that Madison Ave is expecting a few more to arrive. I haven't heard yet about the Beverly Hills location, but if you call them let them know that I sent you.

    1. Hi Kimberly, It looks as though they sold out online, but there are still some available in the physical stores. I was told that Madison is expecting a few more in, and A was told that there are some left at the Las Vegas location. I haven't heard if Beverly Hills has any left. I know that these were going to move quickly, but I think that you still have a chance to get your hands on one.
