What’s shakin’ Internet?
As you may or may not know, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics has some killer lip shades called Lip Tar. Now I have reviewed their nail polish in the past, but hadn’t tried anything else of theirs. Until now. I was hearing about these SO MUCH on blogs, Twitter and You Tube so I thought, what more perfect opportunity to try them out than Halloween?
Lip Tars are like a combination of lipstick and lip gloss. They are extremely opaque like a lipstick, but glossy and smooth like a lip gloss. They are meant to be mixed, so you can create a ton of different colors. They are also very moist, and contain Hemp Oil, Peppermint Oil and Vitamin E. They are vegan and cruelty-free as well!
The colors I got are ones that will go best with my costume (gothic vampire) and they are NSFW and Tarred. Check them out along with goofy pics of me wearing them!
NSFW is a true, classic red. This color screams 1950′s red to me, it’s just perfect. Not only is the color perfect, the consistency of this stuff is freakin amazing! I can’t even begin to explain the opacity here. It is SO opaque and thick, and not runny or sticky at all. I took just the tiniest amount on a lip brush, and placed it on my lip and it covered so much area. I used hardly any to do my whole lip. The texture is really nice, it’s creamy, and like I said NO stickiness whatsoever. It has a very mild mint scent to it. What I love about this one compared to a lot of the other colors is that it can be worn straight out of the tube, doesn’t need to be mixed or toned down or anything to look “normal”. This one stayed in place very well also, I didn’t use a lip liner, but I didn’t have it on for long either so I can’t comment on longevity of the product.
