Tatcha Cherry Blossom Lip Contour Trio

Tatcha Cherry Blossom Lip Trio | The Beauty Look Book

Earlier last month Tatcha launched new lip products in their Twilight Cherry Blossom Lip Contour Trio ($85) and it sold out almost immediately. If you missed out I have exciting news to share from Tatcha that the set and the individual items will be restocked today at 1:00 PM PST. The Cherry Blossom collection is exclusive online to and per the team it’s going to be available only on their site. If you like natural fresh looking beauty I highly recommend you check the entire collection out. Tatcha calls this “a fresh take on nude lips” with a “universally flattering pink blush.” An FYI for this restock – the trio won’t have the purple makeup pouch as they wanted to bring the collection back as soon as they could.

A look at the collection which includes:

  • TWILIGHT: A Cherry Blossom Contouring Lip Liner is my favorite piece of the collection, it’s an ultra creamy, full pigment perfect pink beige that glides on the lips
  • TWILIGHT: A Cherry Blossom Silk Lipstick is a stunning soft petal pink, it has a glossy sheer to medium finish, it has a different formula that is lighter, sheerer and more glossy compared to their Plum Blossom and Kyoto Red
  • CHERRY BLOSSOM Camellia Lip Balm is a sheer soft tinted pink balm, on my lips it’s pretty much clear with a smooth hydrating feel

Lip swatches, foundation worn is Tom Ford Waterproof Foundation and Concealer in Natural (out of all the bases I’ve tried I still think this is the best foundation I have). Setting powder used is the Armani Luminous Silk Powder Foundation in #4. I also re-swatched the now discontinued limited-edition Sunrise Plum Blossom to compare for you!

The Cherry Blossom Lip Balm is clear with a very soft sheen on my lips. The Lip Pencil pulls warmer and slightly beige on my skintone. The Lipstick is a neutral pink. Plum Blossom is a lot deeper, more pink and brighter.

All three lip items applied. I applied the balm first to prep the lips, then followed with the lipliner to line and fill and then topped with the lipstick. On the eyes and cheeks I’m wearing the Becca x Chrissy Teigan Glow Face Palette (which is pure love!). Dress is an older style from Rag and Bone, similar here, here and here. When I layer all three lip products in the Cherry Blossom Lip Trio I get a soft petal pink with a beige and slightly peachy sheen. Also I am in desperate need of a hair cut – in San Diego I used the same two stylists for nearly 10 years. I’m debating whether or not to wait until I go back to visit, although I suspect I’ll have to try someone new. If you have any Tampa hair salon recommendations let me know.

And because I know you girls love comparisons, I pulled a handful of neutrals to compare. I did find a couple shades that look similar but the gorgeous presentation, packaging and formulas from Tatcha just simply cannot be matched. First a look at Cherry Blossom vs Plum Blossom (previously reviewed here), I have an untouched backup because that shade was also limited-edition:

Last month I saw Cherry Blossoms for the first time in NYC and the packaging of this collection matches the petal color perfectly!

I love all three – how can one resist the pretty pink tints and packaging? For the liner and lipstick there is no detectable scent. There is a very subtle scent in the lip balm but it’s barely detectable. If I had to pick one favorite it would be the lip pencil, although the other two are also very special. I’m dying for the pink lipstick packaging. Tatcha Lipsticks are made with the most exquisite details and have a gorgeous heavyweight feel. I know many women who hate paying a lot for lipstick but still think their Tatcha splurges were well worth every penny spent (myself included).

The Cherry Blossom Lip Contour Trio retails for $85. Individual items are expected to be listed online exclusively at Tatcha this afternoon. The collection is scheduled to restock today 5/15 at 1:00 PM PST. Have you tried these yet? If you were able to get them the first round what did you think?

Many thanks to Tatcha for sending the Cherry Blossom set for review.

    I just moved from Tampa to Northern Virginia and I’m trying to find a new place for my hair too! I would recommend Alexandra at Salon 2120. She’s pretty amazing all around πŸ™‚

    • Thanks AJ! I will check them out, I really appreciate the recommendation!

  • Swingtime

    Beautiful, but I was hoping the lip balm was a blush–it’s a beautiful shade. Hmm, I’ll have to think this one over. Great review and beautiful swatches, as usual!

    • LOL, I think the balm shade would make an amazing blush!

  • Hi Sarah – I saw a comment come through but then it appears to have been deleted, would be more than happy to share the salon/stylist I used – if you see this, please e-mail me at πŸ™‚

  • Christine

    Wow, the Tatcha site was slammed today! It took about 2 hours of intermittent refreshing to be able to add it to my cart and check out. But your swatches were so beautiful, I had to have it. Looks like it’ll be what I wanted CT Bitch Perfect to be (that one pulls a bit too peach on me for my tastes).

    At least they’re fast to make up for the hassle, I’ve already got shipment confirmation!

    I still want the Plum Blossom lipstick desperately – I hope they bring it back. I was able to get a set yesterday, even with the technical issues. Tatcha’s customer service was all over it to ensure that people who commented on Instagram were contacted. They even offered to put a set aside for me if I wasn’t able to get one. Great way to handle the problem.

    • I hope they bring Plum Blossom back too! Good to hear they had great customer service – not surprising, I’ve always had such good experiences ordering from them.

    Hi, I’m loving all your swatches! Between the Tatcha Cherry Blossom Silk Lipstick and Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Matte Revolution Lipstick, which would you reckon is more worthy purchase for an everyday nude lip colour for someone with sensitive lips? Can’t decide which to splurge on. Also, is Cherry Blossom slightly lighter in colour than Pillow Talk?

    • Cherry Blossom is lighter with a different undertone which is why I did not compare the two. Tough pick – both are suitable for my sensitive lips. If you can only get one I would say go for the Charlotte Tilbury if you want more coverage and a semi matte finish. If you want a sheen or something more natural looking then go with the Tatcha option. HTH.

  • I have Kyoto Red and it was ok, don’t get the hype, honestly. At this price point I prefer Guerlain.

  • emmmilyyy

    I was so bummed how fast the lip trio set sold out – I missed it both times! Managed to order the Cherry Blossom Lipstick a couple days ago – it’s now sold out again haha. I wish I’d been able to get the lip liner too, it looks absolutely beautiful in the pics. Unfortunately it was OOS, but I’m crossing my fingers that it’ll be restocked just once more!

    The Plum Blossom Lipstick is gorgeous. I was hoping they’d bring it back this year. I wonder why Tatcha doesn’t make all the lipsticks permanent. They’re obviously immensely popular so not sure what gives.

    If you were unable to get any of the Cherry Blossom products online this week, contact the company. They’re doing their best to accommodate everyone who couldn’t order in time. I cannot say enough about their customer service!! (In fact, I got a heads-up when I spoke on the phone with a Tatcha rep: QVC’s Today’s Special Value on Friday, June 2, is going to be from Tatcha! Tune in at 12am Eastern!)
