You can find them at Sephora or Tartecosmetics.com for $26. I don't think these are available outside the States yet. Do let me know if these are available outside the US.
Tarte claims that these lipsticks are fade free and that they will stay in place for 12 hours -
'Thanks to nature’s most perfect ingredient, Amazonian clay, fade-free color stays in place all day so there’s no need to continuously reapply or worry about smudging and budging. Amazonian clay also restores the lips’ natural moisture content with nourishing and hydrating properties, imparting amazing color and restoring skin’s wellness.'
While I believe that to be BS, I do think that the formula is incredibly soft and buttery without being greasy. The lasting power is longer than average, as the shade Inspired lasted for 6 hours on my lips with some drinking and talking. I reckon you would need to reapply post a meal. So if you are looking for a lip stain this is not the lipstick for you. Might be better of going with the Bourjois Shine Edition lipsticks which stain my lips or Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains.
What impressed me about these Glamazon lipsticks is the feel of them. There are no distinguishable particles at all. Can you use finely milled to describe a lipstick? If yes, then these are incredibly finely milled. I adore the shade collection which does include a couple of brights but most shades are great for every day wear. Since I am a sucker for anything unusual, I adore the packaging, even though it's way bigger than it needs to be as the amount of product you get is tiny.
What is disappointing is the price, these cost $26 in the US, the fact that the exaggerated claims by Tarte and the amount of product you get for you money. The photo below shoes pretty much all of the product in the tube (2 g) which is not much at all.
