Birchbox Breakdown

In theory, creating the perfect neutral lip should be easy. In reality…not so much. That’s why we reach for these versatile, longwearing, high-pigment matte lipsticks. The doe-foot applicator means we can say “see ya” to our lip brush, and the opaque colors are infused with hemp and peppermint oils so they feel silky and smooth. Bonus: the vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free formula can easily be mixed to create unique colors. Choose between Hollywood (a beige with gold metallic pearl) and Hush (a neutral pink).

How to Use

Apply the tiniest bead of Lip Tar to lips for matte, opaque coverage. If desired, layer to create a glossy finish. Wear alone or mix with other shades for a one-of-a-kind look.

Let's Talk About Hollywood

Are you as intrigued by Hollywood as I am? A matte, neutral, shimmery, nude... what does that even mean? I was intrigued and highly disappointed by every swatch I saw online but went ahead with it anyway. Great idea.

It's a bit overwhelming on its own, as somebody with a pale complexion and rosy lips, but if you have very pale lips I could see this working well (particularly with a subtle tan). Really though, over a darker plum base and applied very sparingly, this was the greatest lip color for the holidays imaginable. Coverage can be applied sparingly for a really nice warm matte sheen and I had zero problems with transferring. Total surprise.

Great neutralizer

I like this product! I purchased this in Hollywood. Most lip colors are too pink or red for my complexion, so I use this as a lip topper and it neutralizes perfectly.

Not for me

This's as a mystery bonus pack extra, so it was probably not matched to my profile, but seriously, who would wear this chalky clownish lip color? Awful!

The Reds and links are amazing of this product, but the neautral colors seperate into the cracks of your lips and looks clumpy. Major disappointment and looks horrible. The only savor is to apply it and then use a napkin to dab it in, so it tints your lips but that's it.

The Hush color sample omg

I have never put a color like Hush on my lips before. Peachy pink was well, gross. I do not knowfor the life of me who on earth could wear this. It looks like dried stomach antacid medicine on my lips. No bueno
