blackdahlialip4OCC Lip Tar in Black Dahlia // Silk Blouse – Everlane

This was part of a set with the lip tar and the matching nail polish (an early birthday gift from my sweet Becca), and I love it. These lip tars aren’t everyone’s favorite because they aren’t the most convenient form of lip color. Carrying the little brush and tube in your purse isn’t as easy as just touching up with a swipe of lipstick. Luckily the staying power of this lipcolor makes it easy to forgo touch-ups.

I’ve worn this to work without bringing it with me and by the end of the day I had a nice, even (albeit lighter) stain. It started as this dark berry color and finished as a reddish pink. After drinking coffee, eating breakfast, and having lunch, I’d say that is pretty impressive.

I’d recommend exfoliating and priming lips beforehand because if you have dry patches sometimes the darker pigments can settle or fade unevenly, but it wasn’t hugely noticable. If you can’t or don’t want to bring the little plastic case with the tube and lip brush, I think Revlon’s Black Cherry is close enough to use for touch-ups.

Bottom line: It’s everything I hoped for and I’m so happy it’s finally mine. Thanks again Becca! I’ll try to do a swatch and review of the matching nail polish soon.

    Thanks for the review! You look absolutely amazing with it, and the lip colour complements your brows a lot (is that weird? It’s true though).
