Avoid greasy food or oil-based glosses to maximize the longevity of your Violent Lips. When you want to remove the lip tattoo, apply make-up remover or baby oil to your lips and let it soak in for thirty seconds. Use a cotton ball or washcloth to wipe off.

Birchbox Breakdown

You don’t need to be Lady Gaga to rock this look. Temporary lip tattoos are the most daring trend to hit the streets since bow-shaped hair, but they’re also surprisingly wearable. Violent Lips are perfect for those occasions when you want to stand out (think late night bashes and dance floors lit by disco balls). Each pack comes with three water-activated tattoos, enough for plenty of memorable occasions.

How it Works

From cute polka dots to look-at-me leopard prints, Violent Lips come in patterns to suit every adventurous fashionista. Each temporary tattoo lasts up to eight hours and is strong enough to stay put through dinner, dancing, and even your good night kiss. Better yet? Not only will your lips look fierce, but the FDA-approved appliques are made with vitamins and botanical oils to reveal a revitalized pout once removed.

How to Use

Practice makes perfect when it comes to these nifty lip tattoos. First, peel the film off the upper lip tattoo. With your mouth in a relaxed ‘O’ shape, match the cupid’s bow of the upper lip tattoo to your own cupid’s bow. Next, use the dotted lines as a guide to carefully cut the excess away from the sides and bottom. Cut modestly at first to avoid making errors. Peel the tattoo away from the plastic backing and place the sticky side on your lip. Dab a wet cotton ball to your lips to help the tattoo adhere, and slowly remove the paper away from the tattoo. Repeat for your bottom lip. The final and most crucial step: wear your Violent Lips with superstar confidence.

Fun but, um, when?

This product, while fun, was a little impractical. I wore them as part of a costume but they were hard to put on, kept messing up while doing it. BUT they lasted a while. So, there's that.

Not my favorite

I couldn't wait to try this product. When it arrived and I read the instructions, I proceeded to try one of the designs. It was sort of difficult to apply and if you have thin lips, its even more difficult. I gave the rest to my sister-in-law

Who will really use these?

I applied this "lip tattoo" only to take it off. Its thick and looked terrible. Just not my style. Only recommended for the truly wild at heart.

Who in the real world would wear this...

...? like seriously? waste of a sample and a waste of production. Just because Ke$ha likes it, doesn't mean its okay to wear in the real world. Awful.

ok

This product was OK. It felt funny in my lip creas. I like the different culers. My favorite ones are the leopard ones.

Watch the Tutorial

These lip tattoos are awesome and amazing. I bought a set of Irish flag tattoos for St. Patrick's Day. It came with 3 Irish Flag lips and a bonus pink cheetah print tattoo. I watched 2 or 3 tutorials on youtube to make sure I wouldn't waste them, and I practiced with the pink cheetah print one the night before. You have to trim them to match your lip shape, and it's not that hard. My first try with the cheetah print was not a good look. However, I learned some lessons (like, definitely trim the correctly or they will peel off), and applied the Irish Flag the following day with great results. I received so many complements throughout the day. And the lips were incredibly long lasting. They stayed on for more than 12 hours through eating, drinking, singing, talking, kissing, etc. I would definitely recommend these for a fun costume or other special occasion, but probably not for every day wear, unless you're a drag queen.

This idea is strange...

I got these and tried them for fun. I wasn't totally successful with the application so the end result didn't look very good.

With a little more time working with the application would probably help. I won't be giving it another go...this product isn't something that is a need for me.

Fun, for dressin up

These are fun to play with. I was not overly impressed with the FEEL of them, but costumes are not usually the most comfy!.

Serious disappointment

You cannot even begin to imagine my disappointment when I got this in my box. This is not really something that you can wear out on a daily basis, and they really aren't that easy to apply. In my opinion, save your money.
