Color bleeds on lips
Anyone know how to prevent the color from bleeding on your lips?

answer 1
OK, so I guess I used too much product the first time so my next wear I used a VERRRRRY small dot of a size per one of the post suggestions and the OCC instructions; HOWEVER, this product STILL BLED!!! Again, if I paid $18 I would be highly upset and demanding a refund.... Even at $9 it's not WORTH it! I'm only keeping this because the color is very pretty and will use this product only to run quick errands before it starts to bleed!

Try to use very little of the product - they aren't kidding when they say "use the tiniest drop!" Too much and it will get all over the lower half of your face, as I found the hard way.

Have you tried a clear or color-matched lip pencil? You might also be applying too much product. For my full lips, a dot the size of two freckles is enough.

Question
Am I too old to wear these colors?
I'm in the 54+ age range and love pink, but only wear "full makeup" for special occasions. My daily routine is foundation, blush, lip color, and a bit of mascara. I was looking at Malibu Pink, but not sure if it would clash with my casual lifestyle. Any suggestions?

I don't think you are ever too old to wear any color. What I would look for in a lip color is how well it matches your skin tone. If you go for something bold on your lips, easy on the eye make up. And pay attention to the size of your lips, light colors will make them appear larger and dark will make them look thinner. But never let your age get in the way of your choices. women are beautiful no matter what age they are!!!!

I find the lip tars to have great pigment, but a really finicky and sticky application. I would not consider this a low-maintenance product.

Yes they do dry the lips.
Use their primer and moisturize the lips!

I'd highly suggest getting some lip primer. It doesn't have to be the official lip tar primer, but just another lip product that you can put underneath it to keep your lips from drying out.

Yes, they can dry out your lips. Use a good lip balm underneath the lip tar before applying to ensure that your lips stay hydrated.

Yes, these are drying. You need to use their primer first, or use a balm first. I play with it by adding lip gloss to further moisturize after application.

Question
Looking for a lip stain for wedding day...is this a good choice?
I don't usually wear lipstick, occasionally lipgloss, but mostly chapstick. I would like to wear some color, but I usually just stay natural with my makeup, but I would like to wear something that I don't have to reapply all day. I was thinking midtone pink plum or antique bridal. Would this brand and color be good choices?? I don't want this to come off all over my groom. Help!? Thanks!

Terrible, terrible choice for wedding makeup!!!! it will come off on your teeth and end up all over your groom. I would suggest a stain or a long wear lipstick such as the Hourglass liquid lipsticks, Kat Von D's liquid lipsticks (those will stay on all night with eating, drinking and the occasional smooch!). Even a light gloss would be a better idea than lip tar!
Good luck!

My experience with this product is that it is very runny and messy. I had purchased some blue lip tar to wear on Halloween. I had pictured the tar as being a thick formula that would dry and stay put. Even when I used the base the product featheres, ran and came off on everything.

Question
How do I completely remove the tar at the end of the day?
I wear Black Dahlia and after a few hours of wear, I have the worst time trying to take it off! I'm able to get most of the tar off, but there's always some residual tar and the stain that's left behind. How do I remove it so that my lips are back to it's original, bare color? I've tried drugstore cleansing cleaning clothes, good old water and tissues, and even petroleum jelly, but the stain is stubborn!

Thanks!

Sometimes you can use extra virgin olive oil to break down the product. I would also recommend Boscia's "makeup breakup" cleanser.

I would recommend Philosophy Purity Made Simple. Ask for a sample and try it. It takes off 90% of my most stubborn eye makeup (waterproof mascara, kohl liners) so I would guess it'd be great at thick deep lip color too. They also make a foam and wipes but I love the traditional semi-cream cleanser. HTH!

Using a lip primer before using the tar helps. I like the one from too faced but lip erase works well too. Doing that and use Balms Away makeup removing wax works well for me. If all else fails give your lips a gentle exfoliation.

I find that it is as matte and as pigmented (perhaps more pigmented) than kat von d's liquid lipstick, but not as drying at all! Just blot your lip tar to help the dry-down process.

Just as pigmented but not as matte. The kat von d ones go on glossy and dry to a really nice matte. The OCC ones stay glossy.

KVD everlasting has the finish of a permanent lip product where it stains with little transfer after drying time. OCC goes on satin dries matte, does transfer but still has a long wearing time with transferring.

Lip Tars are thinner and less creamy than Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick. Lip Tars have more of a paint-like consistency whereas Everlasting Love feels more like a traditional lipstick finish. Both are highly pigmented and have great staying power, but Lip Tars are more prone to feathering and should be used with a primer and/or a lip liner.

I think lip tars are a million times better... They might not be as matte, but they're way more comfortable to wear. The KVD liquid lipsticks dry out my lips like nobody's business, but lip tars are comfortable. It depends on how those feel on your lips!

I think most people take pictures/swatches right after applying, when it's still shiny and wet. It takes a little bit to dry down to matte, and I find that blotting once helps the process along. It's definitely matte!

MissAndry

answer 2
I've bought many lip tars, and the color is so strong that it doesn't look like a true matte. It's definitely not a gloss but not you're stereotypical matte. I would suggest trying the blot and powder method if you have your heart set on buying a lip tar. Blot it down with a kleenex lightly and then dab a setting powder or I use cheap drugstore white eyeshadow (elf brand) on your lips and that will mattify it, promise. If you're looking for a strong matte i would highly recommend stila's long lasting liquid lipstick. the red is phenomenal and it even last through meals, i recently ate a spaghetti and meatball dinner with it on and it didn't budge. Hope this helps and good luck!

Yes, it takes a few minutes to dry fully, most of the pictures are probably taken shortly after application. It does eventually dry to a full matte though. I have Stalker and it's a great cool toned red.

To answer your question, yes, I own the Lydia purple hue of the lip tar mattes, and once you apply it, the tar almost immediately turns matte, so matte that it may dry your lips, so I recommend using the primer.

These are matte shades and will dry with a matte finish. To ensure a matte look, you may want to also pair the lip tar with a primer.
