These lip tars are somewhat of a combination of a lip stick, lip gloss, and a lip stain - lip stick because of the complete full coverage color; lip gloss because of the glossy finish; lip stain because once you apply the color it sticks around until you decide to take it off.
Just try them once and you will quickly understand their amazing tri-lip-product powers. However, for best usage, I recommend 3 things.
1. Prep lips with lip liner to avoid feathering 2. Apply tar with small application brush 3. Blot, blot and blot
