I don’t know if you’ve already noticed but I’m absolutely, completely obsessed with trying new lip products. It’s a serious problem, I can’t even tell you how many lip glosses/lip sticks/lip balms/lip stains I own! A while back, I came across Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics which has the amazing product Lip Tar. I was very eager to try these lip products because I’ve heard they look sensational on! Luckily I came across the Mini Set x4 and snatched it up! I don’t believe it’s available at Sephora any longer in this set, however have no fear there is a Lip Tar Mini Set x12 set available for $69.00 valued at $108.00, Lip Tar Trio Set for $47.50, as well as Pro Picks Lip Tar Set x4 for $59.00 valued at $118.00.
The shades in my Mini Lip Tar set included a neutral pink, bright pink, classic red, and a dark seductive plum. Which in my opinion are 4 of the best colours to own, perfect for any occasion and you are bound to love at least one of them!
“Lip Tar is a deeply pigmented liquid lipstick with extraordinary staying power. This expertly coordinate set of OCC’s most popular shades is a great new way to share your Lip Tar obsession. Whether as a gift, or for petite portability, this set is the perfect way to get your first taste of Lip Tar before building your full-size collection.”
This Mini Lip Tar Set from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics included 4 mini lip tar’s in shades: Memento (Mid-Town Pink Plum), Anime (Seriously Neon Fuchsia), NSFW (true, balanced red), and Black Dahlia (blackest blackened red), as well as a small lip brush.
If you intend to purchase a set or one individually I HIGHLY recommend that you also purchase the Lip Tar Primer. The pigment is so strong in these lip products that the product does tend to bleed. However, when you apply this lovely lip primer it pretty much eliminates any bleeding.
“Flash a fabulous smile and a stunning splash of color with this lip formula that combines the longevity of a lipstick with the breezy application of a gloss. The rich pigment will drench your pout and the blend of essential oils, including hemp and peppermint, will soothe and soften the skin for a supremely comfortable finish. For easy travel and application, each Lip Tar comes with a vinyl carrying case and mini lip brush.”
Memento| $22.00 individually
Mementois described as a “mid-tone pink plum” with a matte finish. This out of all 4 is probably my favorite shade, only because I can wear it as an everyday colour or in the evenings. It’s a beautiful neutral pink that I can see myself wearing often. It applies quite evenly and effortlessly. Perfect shade for the summer when you have a nice tan.
Anime| $22.00 individually
Anime is described as “seriously neon fuchsia” with a matte finish. And it is seriously hot pink. I absolutely love it though. Hot Pink lips in the summer is my favorite look to rock, so this will be among my favorites for this upcoming summer. Applies evenly and effortlessly.
NSFW| $22.00 individually
NSFWis described as “true, balanced red”, with a matte finish. The pigment in this red is INSANE. I love it so much. It’s a perfect true red and it looks fabulous on. There’s something about a good red lip that is so incredibly sexy.
Black Dahlia| $22.00 individually
Black Dahlia is described as “blackest blackened red”, with a matte finish. It is definitely the blackest, blackened red no questions asked. Now I love this colour so much but it bleeds like crazy and it is extremely difficult to apply. It took me forever to get an even application with no bleeding. I very much want to love this colour but it’s too high maintenance for me. I love a good vampy lip, I just wish it were easier to wear!
Now all of these shades claim to have a matte finish, but I found that they had a glossy finish. Not that I mind I actually love that it appears shiny but it shouldn’t claim to be matte, because it is not.
All in all I am definitely going to be purchasing more shades of this lovely Lip Tar from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, I very much enjoyed trying these shades out and I cannot wait to try more!
