Review: OCC Lip Tar Pro Picks v2.0

Small preview of liptars!

All the lip tars, lips are bare with the exception of chapstick! They're all in the bag together instead of seperated like v1.0 or v3.0. Click for larger image.
Long overdue review for Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar Pro Picks v2.0, which contains Iced, Kava Kava, Lydia, Hoochie and Pretty Boy! I absolutely adored this set, probably even more than I liked v3.0, mostly because some of the colors that are given in this set look so bold and like something I wouldn't use, but end up looking much prettier than what I envisioned. My lips are naturally quite pigmented and these liptars cover up the pigmentation quite well. So, without further ado, lip tar swatches!

Sorry for the slightly darker image, I photographed these in natural light, and it fluctuated throught the session. I will probably not be using Iced by itself anytime soon, but I may mix it with something like Hoochie or Pretty Boy or even Femme to get a softer color. I may even use Iced for highlighter on my cheekbones, nose or cupid's bow. I think it's a useful liptar to have, but I would not have bought it, if it were seperate.

Guys, I found my perfect nude lip! It's beautiful and it's definitely Kava Kava. It's got that peachy, corally look without being too much, and it's the perfect color for intense smokey eyes or a natural look. I'm totally in love with Kava Kava, it's going to be the liptar that runs out first for me, and I will definitely repurchase, or buy if it weren't included in a set.

I was definitely not planning on liking Lydia. It looked like a dusty purple in the tube, but was this beautiful pinkish-berry-I-don't-even-know-how-to-describe-it color that looks totally natural with my skintone and I guess Lydia and I are kind of a thing now. It's a color that says that you're wearing lipstick, but not going overboard, it's definitely what I think a classy lady would wear, and I love it!

Hoochie, click for larger image.
Now for the fun colors! Hoochie is a magenta color that literally screams fun, while it's not neon magenta, it's pretty close. It's definitely very eye catching and I think I may be brave enough to venture out with it, but it probably would not be a color that I would pick up if it wasn't in a set.
Pretty Boy, click for larger image.
Last but not least, we have Pretty Boy! Pretty Boy is a bright fuschia that worked much better than I expected on my skintone. Like Hoochie, it's very fun and eye catching, but it's not a color that I'd pick up on my own, but I do like it and hope I can wear it out someday. I may consider making the color lighter with frost, or not as intense with clear mixed in, or as a tar-blush. How fun would that be!

To apply, I used my elf Lip Exfoliator first, then used a lip balm, then used the lip brush that came with the kit to line my lips with the lip tar, then fill in. It was super easy, and only takes me about 3-5 minutes each time. These lip tars are also super long lasting, and I can even eat in them! I'm super happy about this lip set, I think that all the colors are really pretty and can be used for either lip, cheek or contour or mixed for more colors! What do you think? Will you be getting this set?

Thanks for joining me! Hope to see you next time!
