Apply the tiniest bead of Lip Tar with our newly-included #010S Short-Handled Precision Lip Brush for complete, opaque coverage, either mixed with other shades or on its own.

Pro Tip: Lip Tar Metallic™ is best applied over properly moisturized and primed lips. 'Clear' LIP TAR™ insures optimum application and also re-hydrates the look of LIP TAR: MATTE™ after application.

My Lip Tar has separated in the tube!

Over time, you may notice that Lip Tar™ appears to separate in the tube or drop out of suspension. Fear not: this is completely normal and due only to the unprecedented amount of pigment we use in our product. It is not an indicator that the product has spoiled or expired. To get the pigment back into suspension, simply alternate the way the Lip Tar™ tube is stored it (i.e. cap side up, versus cap side down, on its front or on its back). You will find that the Lip Tar goes quickly back into suspension. Preventing this from happening on our end would mean reducing the pigment load itself, which is a change we're sure our customers wouldn't want to see happen!

Lip Tar appears to feather or bleed on my lips. What am I doing wrong?

You've simply applied too much product. Using the amount of Lip Tar™ you would to apply a traditional lip gloss would yield enough product to paint your entire face - no joke! The tiniest little bead, barely a quarter of a squeeze out of the tube, is enough to impart full, opaque coverage on the lips. Remember, the designed intent of Lip Tar is to create a creamy, semi-matte finish. If you wish to achieve a more glossy look, top it with our Clear Lip Tar, or your other favorite oil-based gloss. Glosses that contain silicone do not play well with Lip Tar.

How do I clean this stuff off of my lip brush? off my clothes? off myself?

Lip Tar™ should be wiped off of cosmetic brushes as soon as possible after an application, and then washed throughly with brush cleaner or shampoo. Lighter-coloured brushes will more likely than not be stained by Lip Tar™, however the brushes will remain sanitary for use, as the remainder seen is more likely to be a stain or dye than residue if properly and throughly washed. Lip Tar™ is easily removed easily from skin using most makeup remover wipes and towelettes or with oil-based cleansers such as traditional cold creams. Time is of the essence with clothing! Try to remove as much as of the product with clean, dry cloth or paper towel, then pre-treat with laundry detergent or stain remover, and wash ASAP! If the stain doesn't remove entirely, pre-treat again, and then re-wash the garment as necessary.

Can Lip Tar be used anywhere else on the face or body other than the lips?

Because of its heavy pigmentation and ease of application, Lip Tar™ makes an effective face and body paint, as well as an excellent crème blush if applied sheerly over well moisturized skin. Because of its peppermint oil content however, OCC does not recommend applying Lip Tar™ on the eyes or anywhere in the immediate eye area.
