Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics had six fabulous new Lip Tar colors out in their fall collection.
Most of these are variations of red but there are a couple other ones in there also. I was really pleased to discover that they are all really wearable colors. Nothing too shocking or over the top or neon here.
As with other Lip Tars I have reviewed in the past, these are most excellent. They apply so easily and are really creamy. You just need a SMIDGE. When I say that I am not kidding, the tiniest amount goes way farther than you would imagine.
If you don’t like peppermint, you may not like Lip Tars as they do have a rather strong peppermint scent. It does go away after a bit though.
One thing to note about the lip swatches below. The colors in real life are a little brighter than my camera picks up on (especially Trollop). The swatches on my hand are more accurate as they were taken in a light tent with a flash, so you see the brightness.
Trick is a nude beige/taupe color. It may look similar to Hush, but it’s definitely different. It’s not as taupe and not as dark. It’s a lot more wearable (without that corpse look) than Hush.
Trollop is a bright medium pink. This is much brighter in person than this pic shows. It’s still really pretty though.
Harlot is a bright coral red. Just gorgeous, this shade of red is so flattering and really great for fall. I love red lipstick in the fall for some reason!
Stalker is more of a classic blue-based red. These are always the reds I gravitate to the most because I love the coolness of them. It’s amazing and my favorite one here.
Strumpet is a deep plum red. This definitely leans more towards plum than red. It’s also gorgeous and very “fall” to me.
Strutter is even darker than Stalker and has more brown in it. It’s like a classic brick-red. It’s another amazing one that will be getting wear from me this season!

As mentioned above, these swatches show the brightness more accurately. See how vivid Trollop is!

I think we have already determined that Lip Tars are great. They have the opacity and creaminess of a lipstick, but the shine and packaging of a lip gloss. Love ’em! I only have two small complaints. One is I wish they were a little less peppermint-y. The second is the packaging isn’t my favorite. The tube design is nice for lighter colors, but there is no way you can apply a deep red like most of these straight from the tube, it would be really messy. You definitely need a lip brush. And be careful when squeezing the product out as they tend to put more out than you need.
Ok folks, what do you think about these colors? Have you tried any of the Lip Tars yet?
