I heard such great reviews of this product on some blogs that i had to give it a try. I thought this color would be nice and add a little pink to my lips. When i got the product i applied it and it looked ridiculous. It is a smooth application, but the color chalky and not sheer at all. I have tried to do lighter applications, but that didn’t work either. I wish i could return this product, I will not be able to use it at all.
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics were kind enough to send me quite a bit of product including 5 different shades of lip tar 2 of each–so ten lip tars), 5 different shades loose eyeshadows (2 of each–so ten total), 5 different shades of nail Polish (2 of each) and a brush set! All free. I love their products! The lip tar smells like candy canes and the eyeshadows are beautiful and stay on all day! The nail polishes last weeks without chipping and all are vegan/cruelty-free! Recommended!
It is a pretty good product. I bought it in tone. Tone should be mixed with dark lipsticks, to tone them down. I mix mine with lime crime candy apple gloss to make a nice pink. Tone should not be worn alone. It looks horrible that way. I may try the hush or divie. Those look similar but with more pink and look wearable on their own. Not to be mixed with other colors. I like how it is thick. Plus it is a vegan product. That is great in my eyes. I will buy the lip tars again but in other colors. Meant to be used with a lip brush by the way.
Obsessive is right!!!
These are absolutely genius!!! Cruelty free, vegan, and so many color options. These are great for warm weather also, since they’re in tubes and already liquid they’ll never melt like normal lipsticks. Plus, you can mix and make as many color options as you could ever imagine! I’m literally in love with these… Worth every cent!
This lip tar has ALOT of pigment. As the other reviews have said a little of this product goes a long way. This is the only color I’ve tried (so far) and when applied sparingly with a lip brush it does come out a pretty pink and not as Pepto Bismol as it looks. I cover with a clear balm and the clear is all I have to reapply for hours.
SO bright and pretty, but it bleeds and disappears
I was expecting this to really stay put based on other reviews. It stays pretty well relative to most drugstore brands, but I still had to reapply it frequently over a 3-hour period, even when I gave it like 5 minutes to dry. It also tends to migrate (um… ALL OVER your face if you aren’t careful… mind where you put your hands if you touch your lips, because this stuff is like PAINT), particularly to the edges and corners of the lips, and to the teeth (I suspect strongly that a bit of lip liner and some loose powder might at least lessen this problem, however). You literally only need a tiny dot (like the head of a pin) to do each lip because it has so much pigment. On the plus-side, the color is stunning. I don’t think I could resist wearing this again, and would consider purchasing another color in the future (as I will literally never run out of this color).
Awesome, in small measures
This stuff is great. BUT, please use the smallest amount humanly possible or else you are going to hate it. I seriously wiped my finger over the top of the tube and was able to use that for an entire lip. The first time I used this, I applied what I would consider a normal amount, using a brush. DO NOT base your judgment of amount on normal lip products. This stuff is concentrated. Use as little as possible.Once used correctly, its awesome. The plus here is that I feel like this is going to last me an entire year because of how little I have to use.
Amazing lip product
you truly only need. tiny but, goes on smooth, not drying. You can make it sheer or dramatic as you like
Long Lasting and highly Pigmented
This color is a bright, hot pink (think Nars Schiap) and dries down to a matte finish. I wasn’t sure what to expect with the name-‘tar’ made me think of sticky gunk like gloss but not at all. It goes on like a gloss and then dries down to a matte/satin finish without ANY stickiness. A few notes-you NEED a brush-this is NOT for finger application. Also, consider a set because you can mix colors and make the perfect shade for you. Also I would mix it on the back of your hand (although you might have a stain there!) or a palette because you really cannot mix them on your lips-they set too fast to blend well. A little goes a looong way, this is highly pigmented stuff. Don’t let me name fool you-it is the least drying and most lasting lip product I have used.
The color is super bright and it stays on a really long time! It’s got a slightly minty flavor/scent, too, which I like. Awesome product!
