OCC (Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics) has a new fall 2011 collection out called Pretty Boy which includes six fabulous new Lip Tars! Yahoooo!
Most of these are very wearable colors straight out of the tube, but as you know, they can be mixed and matched to your heart’s content as well.
OCC is a vegan and cruelty-free company so they are definitely one of my favs. There is no guessing with them!
If you aren’t familiar with Lip Tars, here’s the skinny. They come in what looks like a lip gloss tube, but they are really super incredibly saturated colors that are more like a lipstick consistency with a shiny gloss finish.
You DO NOT apply them straight out of the tube (as the opening might imply) because things will get very messy very quickly. 😉 Rather, put just the smallest amount you can imagine on a lip brush and apply that way. If you have feathering happening on your lips, you used too much.
They last forever, are very opaque and have a peppermint scent to them.
Banjee, Butch, Femme, Narcissus, Pretty Boy, Queen
Banjee is a bright tangerine orange. BRIGHT!
Butch is a gorgeous periwinkle blue color. Obviously this is the one that is the least wearable, but this color is one of my favorite colors so I love it!
Femme is a pale cotton candy pink.
Narcissus is a lavender based medium pink.
Pretty Boy is a gorgeous fuchsia.
Queen is a really bright reddish pink.
Queen and Butch=deep purple
I decided to play around with these a little and show you what a little mixing of the colors can get you. As mentioned you just need the smallest amount. really you only need half of what I have here or less!
This is Queen and Butch mixed together to create a really pretty purple.
Femme and Butch=cool lavender
Here we have Femme mixed with Butch to create a very cool-toned lavender. Love this color, reminds me of a MAC I have.
Banjee and Butch=green/grey
Here I mixed Banjee with Butch and got this god awful greenish grey color, haha! This would be great for a zombie Halloween look or something though.
Pretty Boy and Narcissus=bright pink
Then I mixed Pretty Boy with Narcissus and got a very pretty bright pink.
Pretty Boy, Narcissus and Butch= medium bright purple
I then added a touch of Butch to that combo above and got another really great purple color!
Femme and Banjee=muted tangerine
Here I mixed Femme with Banjee and came up with a somewhat muted yet still kind of bright tangerine/orange color.
Femme, Banjee and Pretty Boy=pinky/coral
Then I added a little Pretty Boy to it and got a deeper more pink/tangerine/coral kind of color.
Fun! I love Lip Tar because you only need a very small amount. The color lasts all day. The colors are saturated and really fun to play around with. Also when you get just a couple you can come up with so many color options by playing around with them so you get good bang for your buck!
