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!

Question
Why does Black Dahlia apply pink?
I bought the All Star Mini 4 pk a little while ago, and I've been struggling with feathering, transfer, dry lips, the whole list of common issues.
I think I may have been applying too much... however when I use "the tiniest bit", I'm not getting the deep rich colour I wanted with Black Dahlia.

This was the colour I was most excited about in the set, as I don't wear a lot of pink. I tend towards reds, burgundy's, plums, ox blood, etc. (unless I'm going neutral). Instead of the "blackened red" advertised, Black Dhalia applies as a dark pink. If I build the colour in stages, I either run into bleeding colour or it will fade to the dark pink within the hour (or both!).

How do I build the colour so it stays, without the bleeding mess? So far I don't see the advantage to using this over a more traditional formula, but maybe I'm doing something wrong.

Try a black lip liner, or a dark lip pencil, and then apply the lip tar on top? That should give you a dark base to start off so you don't have to build so much to get a dark color.

Sometimes the pigment and the liquid settle apart from each other and that might have happened here. It happened with my first tube of Tarred- the color applied a weird translucent grey after sitting in my drawer for too long. The best advice I can give is "shake it for a while and see if that helps."

I bought the Black Dahlia metallic first and I found it to be too light and kind of pink. The Black Dahlia matte applies darker. My daughter felt that it wasn't dark enough even after applying it heavier. If you feel the same, I recommend adding a small dot of the Tarred (black color) to see if you can get the color that you are looking for with having to apply so much. They have also just come out with a Black Dahlia lip pencil, which lasts a very long time as a lip pencil or under your lip color.

I had that problem with the color Tarred. You have to shake them up. The super dark ones such as Tarred and Black Dhalia have different concentrations of liquids than the other lip tars- shake it up and down and back and forth and your problem should be fixed :)

I had the same problems, I think it's just about getting used to working with the formula, especially that shade. If you haven't already, make sure your lips are very exfoliated before applying. I use a bit more than the other colors for Black Dahlia, since it needs to be a lot more even. Also, the new OCC pencils are great for preventing feathering. Good luck!

Similar to UD Venom?
Which color would be closest to Urban Decay's Venom? UD describes it as "bright plum." Doesn't matter if it's a metallic or stained gloss version, I'm open to any finish.

Well, I ended up swatching these in-store and settled on Strumpet. It obviously doesn't have the same finish and the UD lipstick is more sheer, and maybe a bit bluer.
Stumpet is an almost-perfect match to the Venom lip liner.
Just in case anyone else was curious.

Question
Is this lipstick matte?
I'm looking for a matte lipstick. I know I can aquire this look by gliding some baby powder over my lips...but I'm looking for a quality lipstick.

I do a lot of modelling, so long lasting isn't quite an issue. But I need it MATTE, and BRIGHT, and I need QUALITY.

If this isn't the right product, can you send me to a nice matte lipstick? It would be greatly appreciated.

Bite Beauty have beautiful mattes. I have both duos and they last quite a while, and the colors are beautiful, if you want to try out the product I think its the best way since they are only 15$(CAN).

This product is good, the color will last but you can count on it being gone within 5 hours.

Good luck !

....It says in the product name that it is matte. Unless you choose something from the other line of lip tars, yes- these are matte. They last forever and whatever color shows up on your screen is what will appear on your lips. This is my go-to lip color brand.

I've got dry lips too, and if you put this straight on your lips they will feel really dried out and even flaky. You have to get a lip primer (I use Ardency Inn boom base lip balm & base) or the clear lip tar (which you can also add on top of the color if you want to make it glossy) to put on underneath and it does the trick! They are worth it though, they look really great on!

I personally would not use this with dry lips. While I love lip tar, it can be incredibly drying without proper exfoliation and moisturizing before application. If you have a problem with dry/flaky/chapped lips, this is not the product for you.

Question
For darkening.. can you use other black shades also?
Besides the black made for darkening, I noticed there is a reddish black, a metallic black, etc. Has anyone used one of these other black shades for darkening? Did it turn out well? Did you like it better? Worse? I like to wear shimmer sometimes, so I was thinking of ordering the metallic black to have the best of both worlds - a darkening shade that can also add shimmer. If you can offer a comment or suggestion I would be very grateful! Thanks, friends.

If you're going to darken with something other than black, you're going to have to know the base color of the product you plan on using, Black Metal Dahlia is red based, so if you were wanting to darken a blue it would turn purple, it won't stay blue. But it will work, with the right color families.

According to color theory that would totally work, and it's an awesome idea. These were made to be mixed with each other. Just make sure to use tiny amounts of any darkening color.

The black OCC is too pigmented for me to use as a darkener. The very smallest possible amount, a pintip's worth, is still just too much. The metallic black shade is significantly more sheer, so if you're comfortable with the added shimmer (it will look lumpy mixed with a full-coverage lipstick!) this would be a good bet.
