Getting lippie; Lip Tar in Queen by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics...

I'd heard loads of great things about Lip Tars, so bought the shade Queen (bright pink) when I visited Sephora in New York. I'm afraid that I just don't get the hype now I've worn it a few times...

First of all; when you first apply it to your lips it is very slippy, so I had trouble spreading it over my lips neatly. It kept bleeding [yes, I used lipliner] outside my lipline, so I had to keep cleaning up smudges as I waited for it to dry. I also found that this is a pretty slow product to dry, so don't wear it if you are in a rush.

When the formula is dry I was impressed with the pigmentation; Lip Tar is as vivid as a lipstick. However it does transfer easily; I sipped a drink and ate a sandwich, and the product went everywhere - much more than my other lip products do. To be fair there was still colour on my lips, but the shade was less vivid, and once again it had sneaked back outside my lipline.

So whilst I love the pigmentation of my Lip Tar and will continue to wear it on occasion, I doubt that I'll ever buy another one as I disliked how messy they are; especially to apply since it doesn't dry quickly.
