First off let me say I love the practices here at Beautylish you guys made this purchase a pleasure and the packaging and delivery time was amazing! Second omfg this lip tar is amazing! Ive never had lip tar before but after my experience with Black Dahlia and with Beautilish I'll be buying more and it'll be from here. The color goes on effortlessly and is potent and lovely. Two pin-head sized droplets gives a lovely berry stained lip while an additional 1 and 1/2 gives you vampy beyond gorgeous lip color with full opacity. I used EOS lip balm underneath (the pomegranate one) and the included lip brush for application (which is beyond fabulous btw) hope this review helps others!!
Great Fall Shade
Originally I was on the fence about this lippie but when I swatched it in person I was immediately sold. Its super opaque of course and on my lips it translates as a super metallic dark berry red with a smidgen of purple. The wear time is ok....there is some transfer as it doesn't completely set like my other shades. Kinda bummed out about that but the beauty of the shade has me sold. Love it.
A little goes a long way!
I absolutely love this product! All you need is a tiny bead of product and it really covers your lips. I actually wasn't given the option to select Metal Black Dahlia, which is a deep purple-ish brown with a metallic finish. Its a beautiful shade and dried beautifully. Pigmentation is 100% and it feels great on. It may be $16, but you barely use any product, so it will last and last.
Perfect dark shade for olive to deep skin tones
One of my favorite shades from the lip tars. The consistency is to die for and it goes on so easy, and is also easily blend able, and a little bit goes a long way. They have a variety of shades to choose from, and they are cruelty free. You can't lose with that
So far, Black Dahilia is the only OCC Lip Tar I have but I can't wait to purchase more. A little goes a LONG way and you can build up color as little or as much as you want, up to you. Black Dahilia is a dark vampy burgundy red, which I like to build up so it's a very dark reddish purple. All the Lip Tars come with a small lip brush, which makes for an easy application but I often forget to use mine. Instead, I just swipe a bit from the tube on my lips and use the sides of the applicator to spread the color out evenly. Dries somewhat matte on me, which I will usually dab some gloss on top.
I absolutely love this stuff! One of my favourite black lipsticks, for sure. I scrubbed my lips with Lush Lip Scrub first, then applied Kate Moss Rimmel London Lip Balm (which I love as well). After waiting a few minutes, I applied this and honestly, it's amazing. Very silky and matte. I find that it can be drying if you don't use lip balm, though. Overall, really great product. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars, is because it's not a "holy grail" type product.
