I bought these two babies at IMATS (see previous post!) and I have already fallen deeply in love with both of them.
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tars are an immensely pigmented liquid which are half way between a lipstick and a gloss. They apply as a creamy liquid but dry on the lips leaving you with a stunning lip colour and a slight sheen. They are not sticky in the slightest and they have a minty smell. Because they are ridiculously pigmented, you only need a tiny blob to cover your whole lips. It’s best to apply this with a lip brush, because they can get a little messy applying straight from the tube.
Divine – Described as a ‘True Pink Flamingo’, both myself, Lily and Milly bought this Lip Tar because it is so beautiful. It’s a very bright, creamy, milkshake type of pink. Because it is so bright I find that it does accentuate any dry parts of my lips and it takes work to make it look perfect with a lip brush, but that’s forgivable because of how pretty it is. This really brightens up my face and looks great with a smokey eye.
Grandma – I have been wearing this every day since purchasing it. I am absolutely in love with this product, the colour is stunning and looks incredible on pale skin. It’s described as a ‘Classic Coral’, and it looks like an coral red with a hint of orange on my lips. I can’t explain how much I love this colour and I received a lot of compliments on it at an event that I attended yesterday!
Mother Snooks also complimented this yesterday, saying ‘that’s a really pretty colour, it looks like a lipstick that Grandma used to wear’ (my Grandma and I obviously have amazing taste in lipstick shades, she used to wear a lot of orange based reds), and then I was like ‘OMGZ it’s called Grandma!’. Very weird. Anyway!
What I think – OCC Lip Tars have completely lived up to my expectations and I now want more! I love the colour shades available and even more I love the fact that you can mix them to create custom shades. I do like to wear a lip balm underneath the Lip Tars as they do feel slightly drying on and you definitely need to apply with a lip brush to get an even and perfect coverage. I’d say they last 2 hours on the lips, which is probably the only con I can find with them, I feel like I need to reapply them quite often (maybe I just talk too much?) and you definitely need to reapply after eating.
You can purchase them at this website here for £8.95, I bought mine at IMATS for £7 each.
Have you got any OCC Lip Tars? Which colour would be your perfect lipstick?
