Tabu, the long-lasting lipstick first introduced in the 1950s to an overwhelming response, remained a favorite of women everywhere until it was discontinued in 1998. We found this beloved lipstick again for you, and Tabu feels, smells, and looks just like you remember. Bermuda Red is bright crimson in honor of the island’s vivid pink sand. Granada is a bright orange-red, reminiscent of a sunset. Acapulco is a rosy pink recalling wild roses that grow along the ocean shore. Bar Harbor is a dusty mauve. 0.14 oz. tube.

  • Tabu's higher wax content prevents smearing and creeping
  • Long-lasting lipstick color
  • Tabu lipstick in four best-selling colors

Rated 5 out of 5 by Color was wrong Hard to get the right color from the order page. I may try another color later. November 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Granddaughter Approved I received this lipstick in the Bar Harbor shade a couple of weeks back. I wore it today when visiting our grandchildren and upon leaving, kissed one of our granddaughters goodbye on the forehead and she was concerned that I had left pink on her. Absolutely it did not and it lasted all day without having to reapply. Tabu lipstick is a wonderful product. I might get daring and try red next. August 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tabu works great & is so comfortable on the lips It turns colors right away. It is a little different on everyone. My sisters tried it and we all had a different look. It feels like lip balm. It also doesn't melt in the heat. July 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A True Blast From The Past Purchased the shade "Acapulco" as this was the shade of Tabu lipstick I used to buy back in the 1980's and 1990's. Although it is no longer scented with the Tabu fragrance, which I don't mind as I prefer lipsticks with a light scent, it still has the great long wearing and creamy qualities of the original. And the beautiful fuschia shade truly reminds me of the lovely bougainvillea that adorn so many places in Acapulco. I should know, as I vacationed there about 20 years ago. Another great quality of this lipstick is that it feels soft, blots well and doesn't bleed. Looking forward to purchasing the other shades in the future, but the "Acapulco" shade brings you a tropical summery look all year round! May 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by best lipstick ever best lipstick ever including expensive dept store brands. Need more colors. Would love soft pink, nude, soft mauve, berry. January 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gorgeous! Bar Harbor is a taupie/purple color! Smooth, yummy warm consistency. January 16, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Smears easily & not long lasting This lipstick was a disappointment. It smears more than my other lipsticks and is not long lasting. I was very hopeful for a dramatic, long lasting lipstick. Granada was a nice 1940s vintage orange-red color and I did like that effect. June 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lipstick Like it Used to be I've been using lipstick since the 1950s, and this lipstick has the staying power and luster that lipstick had back then. I'm so glad that I ordered it. April 1, 2014

What Our Customers Are Saying about Our Tabu Long-Lasting Lipstick …

"In the 70's I bought a tube of Tabu Lipstick but the best I recall was that it was called "Argentina Red." I got it in Springfield, MO, at a big department store and thought I would never ever find it again. I asked in a post at and this website was given as the answer 3 times! I feel so lucky to now know it was not lost forever! THANKS!!!" - Veronica, Sedalia, MO

"If I told you how many lipsticks were in my makeup drawer, you wouldn't believe me. All of them either just smear all over or just don't stay on or chap my lips. I just received my Tabu lipstick and put it on. I can't tell you how pretty the color is (Granada) and how good it stays on. This lipstick is definitely going to be a main staple in my makeup drawer. I am going to buy another color soon. Thanks, Vermont Country Store!" - Janet D'Urbano, Newtown Square, PA

"I'm thrilled that I finally found a lipstick that really stays on! I plan on "stock-piling" the shade Bermuda Red, in case it becomes unavailable! Thanks for selling a lipstick that is far superior to anything I've ever purchased in the past!" - Mary Asher, Fort Lauderdale, FL

“I put this on in the morning, drink coffee or water throughout the day, eat lunch, and at 5:00 pm, it's still there, sometimes so rich looking that I don't have to reapply it at all. And it doesn't dry out my lips. Amazing stuff.” - DD Breeland, Dallas, TX

"I bought a few other longstay lipsticks from elsewhere at about the same time I purchased the Tabu lipstick from you. After giving a fair trial to all, I can truthfully say that the Tabu is the only one that lass, no matter the price. I will be ordering exclusively Tabu from now on." - Lois Tart, Laurel, MD
