Yes this is very normal for liptars. Thankfully the new tubes are not as bad as the old ones though. Simple rub the tube between your hands very fast (mainly between your two pointer fingers) and squeeze gently as you do it this usually works for me.

Ok i wore both so far just once. i used a scrub under vs a polish and it seemed to helped. but even with a balm they felt a little drying. So i added jack black balm over it and it feels way better

The Lip Tars can feel drying because of the actual formulation itself. Since they're more like a liquid lipstick, they don't really provide a layer that remains on the surface of lips where you can rub your lips together and push product around, it settles in and is long wearing.

 

If you add a balm underneath, be sure to let the balm sink in for at least 2-5 minutes. Apply the Lip Tars over lips with fresh balm won't allow it to sink in as well and might cause issues like bleeding, feathering, or even cut down on the wearability of the product.

 

P.S. Cute nails!

Nice, sounds like you got a good time frame going on, have you noticed the JB balm in particular breaking down the formula or does it sit well on top of the LT?

aviscardi

Re: occ tars

no, not at all. it held up well. i'd say it lasted about 5hrs before i wiped it off. i put the balm on after about 1.5hrs when it felt uncomfortable.

Cool deal, I wonder what type/formulation of balms or glosses last better on the LTs, good info you provided!

Re: occ tars

I was thinking the same thing.

Re: occ tars

I put on Fresh sugar lip treatment over my lip tars. It still last just as long as on it's own in my opinion. Sometimes i put my Korres Mango butters over it since they are so sheer but very moisturizing.

Oh i can try the fresh, i haven't used it in a while. its been in my fridge so it doesn't melt. lol. how did you apply it?

I tap on just alittle so my lip aren't dry, let it sink in, then i apply my lip tar. After it's been on for an hour, i just tap the Fresh lip treatment over. I find it really last and helps my lip tars not dry out.  If i feel like i need to reapply the Fresh throughout the day it's easy to do without a mirror.

thanks!! i was figuring since they are vegan that was the reason. i put them in my drawer last night so i will check them tonight when i get home.

 

And do you keep it past the expiration or shelf life on the back? i know i have some of my lipsticks for over a year now

Hi Aviscardi-

 

I have a few Lip Tars and this is 100% normal. Since they are 100 percent vegan and made without preservatives this may happen. I simply shake mine or like Ireagan says flip it up and down to mix it. It doesn't ruin the actual application of the product.

I read that if your lip tar starts to separate, all you have to do is flip it over on the other side (the side it wasn't laying on) and it will mix back up in about an hour.
