I am in the market for a nude lip color, and when I found Lip Tar's Annika, I thought it was the perfect color. Additionally, it was highly pigmented, and the staining properties made it seem like it would stay all day and just give a natural flush to my lips. However, about half an hour into wearing it, the product had burrowed itself into all of the little cracks and creases in my chapped lips (which are terrible in winter), and further dried my lips so they looked like raisins. I know it's typical for highly pigmented products to somewhat highlight dryness, but this was ridiculous. More than that, this product was difficult to apply because it's runny, and saying a little goes a long way is an understatement. Overall, I was very disappointed in this product due to its extreme drying effects and difficulty of application.

I just recently purchased the OCC lip tar in Super NSFW. its the normal nsfw color with a gold reflect pigment added into it.
Like the other Kip Tars the smallest amount is needed, after it dries it takes almost an entire makeup remover wipe to get it all off, which in my book is a plus.
The color payoff is absolutely amazing and it lasts all day long.
I want all the colors! I'd never need another lip product again.

I think the amount of negative reviews are due to lack of experience with this type of product. Lip tars by any brand are not for the jet-setters or makeup minimalists by any means. First off, the quality and pigmentation is absolutely incredibly! Silky smooth application, NO tackiness, and the smallest amount covers your lips! I played around with these to see the impact various amounts would have. If it feathers, you've applied too much even though you won't think you did - trust me. It takes a fraction of what you'd apply for a gloss to work with these tars. My favorite thing about them is their ability to mix with the other colors and also their compatibility with lipstick. My favorite layered looks are MAC 'Show Orchad' with OCC 'Pretty Boy' (bright fuschia) or Lime Crime 'Airborne Unicorn' with OCC 'Hoochie' (intense lavender). My only regret is that I didn't order more to begin with!

I have always been fascinated by these Lip Tars. There are some very beautiful colors in the line and they are very pigmented. Having said that, this product is too high maintenance, IMO. It feathers, is way drying, and requires very careful application with a brush. A regular sized tube will last you a lifetime, since you only need a tiny amount per application.

I have been reading up on Obsessive Compulsive Lip tars for quite some time now. After careful consideration (I am a definite lipstick/gloss connoisseur) I finally decided to take the plunge. I took advantage of the Holiday special that Sephora was running which gave you four mini's to try for $18 I believe it was. Anyway, when I tell you that this product lasts and lasts and lasts. I mean just that. I applied it at around 7:45 am. When I finally took it off it was around 8:30 pm. I NEVER had to reapply throughout the day. I ate, drank and applied another colored lip gloss on top, about 3x throughout the day, because it can be very drying. And it did not affect the staying power or the color. Amazing! The 4- mini pack will last me well into next fall and this is just December, I'm sure of it. Best investment I could have made given how I love lipsticks and glosses.
Tip: During my research phase I heard a lot about this product's tendency to feather. I used Mac's Prep & Prime Lip for non-feathering and the color NEVER moved. 0 feathering. And that says a lot as I used the deepest darkest purplish color they sell. Purples and Reds are naturally prone to feather because of their composition.
If you haven't tried this you need to, today! I'm going back for more colors. Beat me there or see me there.

- Pigment is great! Color really pops out! A little goes really long way.
- No flavor or smell! I have tried so many lip product where I like the color, but smell or taste was really offensive to me. (ex: vanilla, watermelon, strawberry, cherry...)
- Comes off very easily! It would be gone completely after a drink or a meal. I'm not sure if this is because I'm not using Clear Lip tar underneath.
- Feathers really easily. When it stains around mouth, it is hard to get off. (require remover and then foundation on top of face to get led of it!)
-Packaging could be better. You need the little bag to keep brush and lip tar, but it is bit annoying to open and close.

My review is for the 'clear' lip tar.
I have yet to try any colors, but after trying the clear I am excited and can't wait.
I use the clear before I apply ANY lip color I own... even Ruby Woo by MAC. My lips dry out and feel chapped very fast and frequently, so I normally always just use chapstick under everything. I feel when I apply the clear before AND after, that it make the color last much longer, and keep my lips super hydrated. However, it does not help with color transfer. Infact. I think it makes lip color transfer faster... but it still hold the color, if that makes any sense at all. I just don't have to apply my lipstick as frequently when I wear the clear. With ruby woo, I prefer the matte look, so I apply the clear, allow it to absorb for 5-10 minutes, I blot, and then I apply my lipliner, ruby woo, my lip mix and i'm good to go.
When I do want some more shine (say, when I wear Girl About Town, by MAC) I apply it the same way, but I apply the clear on top as well. It's awesome.
