When I think of liquid lipsticks Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar is what I think of first. Coming in at $18 they’re a little bit more expensive than other lipsticks yet low enough in price that you probably won’t experience sticker shock. They’re vegan and cruelty-free so you don’t have to worry about that issue. They’re pigmented. They last forever. You can wear them as is or mix them together to create your own unique lip look. Today’s post is about two that have similar names but different finishes.
This is Black Dahlia. It’s described as a blackened blackest red. It’s a matte finish and a great addition to your fall lipsticks if you don’t already have it or want another dark red.
Similarly named is Black Metal Dahlia. It’s a blackened burgundy with red pearl. It’s slightly redder than Black Dahlia with lots of sparkle. It’s on the outer edge of being vampy to me but deep enough for fall.
These are highly pigmented so it doesn’t take much to cover your lips. A lip brush comes with each lip tar, however, if you’re in pinch you can use your finger. Exfoliating your lips will help with a smooth application. You can use a primer or dab a bit of lip balm on before you apply it as well.
