Pigmented, beautiful colors, but buy one or two instead of all of them

These colors are beautiful, I recommend NSFW and Anime especially. However, because these products are vegan and without preservatives, the oils in this WILL go rancid. All 25 of mine have gone rancid, making them gross and smelly and patchy TT_TT. So buy one or two that you really really love, and use them up as quick as possible.

I've heard this product called "over-hyped" before, and I can only assume that those people have never actually tried Lip Tar. Anything you hear is completely true: yes, the colours are brilliant; yes, they last all day; yes, a little goes a very long way!

At this point in time, I have about a dozen of these and desperately need more. It takes less than seed-sized amount to coat the entire lips with bold, vibrant colour. Once dry, they last me about five hours, even through eating and drinking. Since they contain peppermint oil, they don't seem to dry my out the way a lot of liquid lipsticks do but I often put a sheer balm over the top just to seal in moisture. They also function well as bases for lipsticks to really amp up the colour. Using my usual makeup remover (jojoba oil), they come off easily.

The best feature of Lip Tars, however, is the blendability. The colours are gorgeous on their own, but it's absolutely effortless to darken, lighten, cool down, warm up, or create brand new colours by mixing them together. It's particularly helpful when trying to match a lipstick colour that might apply a bit more sheer.

love this stuff

I have this lip tar and it is some serious stuff, super potent. It is very true to color and highly pigmented, all you need is a tiny drop for full coverage. Its like a mix between a gloss and a stain in its consistency and it dries to a somewhat matte finish. Only thing is that you really need to blot after applying cause it will end up all over your teeth and chin.

Multi-use, staple in my MUA kit

An absolute favorite of mine. I use the Clear to prime lips to hydrate and prevent other Lip Tars from feathering/bleeding. Muli-use product. Can be used on lips, mixed together to create custome colors, as cheek tint, lip tint if dabbed with fingers while you pucker lips, the ones that are lighter shades with shine can be used to highlight cheeks, bridge of nose, can be used as an eyeshadow base for photoshoots, can use the clear for a "wet" eye shadow look. I love this, a little goes a long way. Super long wear.

If you are shooting a video or having pictures taken, this is the lip product to use!!! Use a good lip conditioner, especially if your lips feather easily before applying for the best results. I first bought these in Plum and Vintage. At first I was apprehensive about the lip tars, because I underestimated how highly pigmented these actually were!!! However, the colors mix easily with each other, your lipliner and lipstick so well you can create endless shade possibilities. I am actually wearing Plum in my profile pic and have used it in several of my tutorials on Youtube. Plum was actually lighter (or pinker) than what I thought it would be for my complexion, but I just line it with a deep plum liner and blend the liner inwardly to create a beautiful shade! I could also see using these with MAC Clear Lipglass for a pretty gloss. The OCC website has a promo going on right now through 7/29/11 where they are set of 6 of the lip tars (colors are in pre-selected) for $50! I've ordered 10 altogether, so that I may play with these colors further. LOVE!!!

Out of this world

I have never seen a lip product this color before and it is beautiful. It's not something you would use everyday, but I think it's going to be fantastic for Halloween, cosplaying, and clubbing. You don't have to apply much and you get insane color pay off. Worth it!

Totally worth it!

Great product. I a little goes a long way. I enjoy mixing the lip tars and creating new colors. For a more precise application use a lip brush and build from there. After I apply the lip tar, I hydrate my lips with vaseline or chapstick and you are good to go.

One of my Favourite Lipsticks of all time

I absolutely love this lip-tar. It is absolutely stunning. I get so many compliments when I wear it and is extremely long lasting even through eating and drinking. The pigmentation is out of this world and I love that this product is going to last for such a long time since you just need a little bit of it. Use a lip brush and you are good to go! I have written a blog post about my experience with lip-tars check it out! http://nopainnobeauty.blogspot.ca/2013/04/oh-la-la-product-rave-obsessive.html

lips, face, body oh my!

The obsession really started in 2012. The first 3 shades I picked up were Tarred, Hoochie, and Feathered. High pigmentation with just a tiny drop of the liptar is really what drove me in but the versatility of these products definitely made me stay. Not only can you mix and match to create your own personal shade but they can be used all over your face and body (not recommend for mediated eye area), making it a mua stable. Your favorite liptar could double as your favorite blush, or even highlighter (i.e Hollywood looks great on the cheeks. As an added plus I'm pretty cautious about sharing my products with friends because lets face it... I don't know where or who they put their lips on so squeezing out the product saves the headache of having to run to the market in the morning to fix that cold sore on your lip :P

Pagan - this color will have you praising the beauty gods!! I knew I wanted this color from the moment I saw it, and I'm so glad I didn't wait. This vampy, gothic, deep, dark, blackberry purple will be a total sell out. Find it and get it. It is truly a universal shade. To make it more daytime wearable, I apply a teeny, tiny amount mixed with clear lip gloss and blot, or apply it then remove it and add lip balm. This color is so intense, it will leave a grape Kool Aid stain that can actually be quite pretty.
