Lippies – Day 2

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, or OCC.  Their Lip Tars are amazing, and if you haven’t tried them you should!  I had to pick up some things for a swap partner from Sephora, and decided to get myself one of the OCC Lip Tar Trios.  I chose the Metallic pack, because I didn’t own any of those colors.  It came with Pris, Yaoi and Role Play, as well as a lip brush.

I applied a small strip of product to my arm, and used that to apply two coats to my lips, and photographed each step.  I used the brush provided.

Pris is described as “palest champagne metallic”.  I wasn’t sure I would like this, but you can actually apply it quite sheerly if you choose.

It takes very little product, which is one of the reasons I love Lip Tars.  The metallic finish is extremely glittery, which is either good or bad depending on your feelings about glitter.  I happen to love it.  I prefer this shade with just one coat, I don’t think I can pull of the paleness of two coats.

Yaoi is described as a “true fuschia metallic”.  I love this shade, and pretty much every pink lip color ever.  If you like bright lips, this is for you.

So bright and pretty!

Role Play is described as a “deep maroon with red pearl”.  I am always on the fence about red lippies, because of how pink/red my skin tone is, but I love this.  It is dark enough that I think anyone could wear this easily.

When applied, I think it is more red than maroon, but you could definitely layer it for a darker color.

What do you think?  Have you tried Lip Tars?

      They are my favorite lippies! I love that they leave a stain so the color lasts all day. Best to use an anti-feathering lip liner with them because they can bleed a little. Milani’s clear liner works great and is cheap!

        Thanks for the tip! I’ve been wanting to try this forever and finally splurged on myself. I love the colors you have too.

      These are the first metallics I have, I will be sharing the other Lip Tars I have later this week. Some of the other trios look fun too, and I really want to try the glosses!
