Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics are a brand I recently discovered thanks to some fabulous bloggers, youtubers and the always informative – Model Mayhem forum.
Their Lip Tars immediately got my attention.
“A stunning new innovation in lip color, OCC Lip Tar combines the longevity of a lipstick, with the ease of application of a gloss. Goes on slick and moist, and dries down to a satin finish. Ultra-saturated in color, OCC Lip Tar contains an unprecedented amount of pigment, so a little goes a very, very long way. An intense yet featherweight layer of color that stands up to the scrutiny of Hi-Def Video and Digital Photography, without ever looking (or feeling!) heavy. Meant to be mixed, OCC Lip Tars come in concise range of colors (and black and white!) for a limitless selection of shades made by you!”
With an introduction like that, who wouldn’t be intrigued?? They also mention that they’re 100% Vegan and Cruelty-Free! :D
Upon receiving the 8 lip tars I ordered from camerareadycosmetics, I realised that the description of these was COMPLETELY 100% true.
They are by far the most amazing lip product I have ever tried. Period.
The pigment is insane. The tiny amount needed is just… crazy. I truly did not expect these lip tars to be as good as everyone makes them out to be, but they really are.
Onto the colours I chose:
Clear – obviously for mixing
Feathered – again obviously for mixing
Tarred – fabulous for darkening any of the colours. Plus how awesome would this be for a gothic photoshoot? :o
NSFW – I could NOT resist this. As well as being great for mixing, this is the PERFECT red!
RX – Everyone needs the primary colours!
Traffic – Primary colour again
Katricia – I couldn’t say no to this. Bit gutted that Pageant was sold out, wanted that too :(
Uber – I just needed this.
I am so in love with these, I don’t think I’ll be satisfied until I own every single lip tar they make. And wouldn’t ya know it, they just released some new colours! Make sure you check out their site here!
We all need lip tars in our lives!!
I’ll be posting swatches of the colours I mix, so be sure to come back and check them out.
Thanks for viewing!
