Review: OCC Lip Tar Pro Picks v1.0

ALL the liptars! Click for larger image. (Lips bare.)

I've saved the best set for last, let me introduce my favorite Lip Tar Set out of the three: Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar Pro Picks v1.0!

This set contains a wearable light pink, a coral, a nude-y neutral, a blue based red, and a dark red, which can I just say that I'm head over heels in LOVE with.. So, without further ado, swatches!

Ophelia - click for larger image.

First off, Ophelia! It's a nice pale pink color that doesn't make my NC20 skin look super dark like Femme did! It'd be perfect for no-makeup-makeup and even though I wouldn't purchase it if it wasn't in the kit (I'm just not really daring enough for pale pinks), I'm super glad it was included in the kit because it looks so nice and almost natural!

Grandma! The one lip tar that EVERYONE and their grandma (haha) has been raving about. Unfortunately, it felt a little brighter than what I saw in swatches, but it's none-the-less a very pretty coral color. After swatching it, I decided that it probably wouldn't be a color that I'd go out and purchase on my own, but, it's super nice to have in the kit!

Melange, click for larger image.

This color is almost my perfect MLBB color, it's better than Revlon Stain in Honey for me, and boy am I in love. Melange and I are kind of a thing, she looks super natural on my lips and, yeah, I think we're in love now. I would probably pick it up by itself because it's this great neutrally-pink that I always need more of! Sidenote: I should probably swatch this compared to my Givenchy Brun Creatur, because this pinky-nude looks really similar! Stay tuned for swatches!

Stalker, click for larger image.

Stalker is a gorgeous blue-based red that makes my teeth look like they've just gotten a whitening treatment. I LOVE it, it's slightly reminiscent of Ruby Woo/RiRi Woo for me, so I'll swatch HAVE to it next to Ruby Woo sometime (please remind me). I just LOVE reds like this one.

Vintage, click for larger image.

As always, I've saved the best for last! Vintage is such a beautiful dark red color that lasted me about 8 hours of wear (including eating a LOT of messy, cajun shrimp). I love it, and the picture literally doesn't do it justice, as my light source kind of fluctuates. It's not as bright as Stalker (even though it looks that way in the picture), and it really provides a kind of depth to your lip. I guess the color they were going for when they mixed it is the vintage pinup red, and I LOVE it. I predict that lining lips with Vintage and filling in with Stalker in an Ombre-like way would 1. be GORGEOUS, 2. plump your lips slightly due to the darker to lighter gradient.

Overall, I LOVE this kit, and I definitely would repurchase it when I finish using it, as a kit of course! I have application tips in my two previous lip tar review posts, if you'd like some. Have you tried any liptars? What are your favorites?

Thanks for joining me!
