OCC Collection “The Garden” Lip Tars
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics has a new collection out for Spring/Summer, and it includes six new eyeshadows, lip tars, and nail polishes. I’ve reviewed the eyeshadows in a previous post, so let’s get to the lip tars!
The Lip Tars in this collection are all on the warm side for the most part, and range from carmely browns to bubblegum pinks, and include some out-there shades, like a bold teal and vibrant violet. This collection also debuts the new Lip Tar packaging, which I discuss in this post.
If you have never used lip tars, know that a liiiitttle goes a very long way, and they all have a satiny finish, feel light on the lips, have a slight minty feeling to them, and last hours and hours and hours.
Kava Kava, Ophelia, Digitalis, Belladonna, Chlorophyll, Pennyroyal
Kava Kava: True Peach Neutral. This is a nice, muted orangey peach shade. I generally lean toward brighter orange lip shades, but this one is still nice!
Ophelia: Pure Petal Pink. Nice, light bubblegum pink. Such a springy shade!
Digitalis: Pink-tinged Lavender. Very Similar to Ophelia, just a touch darker and cooler.
Belladonna: Ultra, Ultra Violet. They aren’t kidding. This shade is AMAZING. I’d wear it out! True, awesome violet.
Chlorophyll: Full-on Teal. I’m sure more than one of you are wondering what on earth you would do with a lip color this shade. Lip tars are not only meant to just be applied as-is to the lips, but also are meant for mixing to create new shades. A shade like Chlorophyll would work well to help neutralize a red color that is a bit too bright.
Pennyroyal: Roasted Peach/Brown. A few shades deeper than Kava Kava.
The colors in this collection are really appropriate for the name of this collection being The Garden, as that’s the first thing I really think of on seeing these colors all together! They make me think of flowers, leaves, the earth, maybe some bricks surrounding it.. I have a little image in my head haha :) Like always, I am a huge fan of lip tars in general; I love how easy they are to apply, that a tube of it will last you a lifetime, and how long they last. I wore one shade (NSFW) to a music festival last year, it was on for about 10 hours and didn’t fade even a bit. These suckers LAST!
Overall: This is a beautiful, well rounded collection of lip tars, in my opinion! A little something for everyone.
What you need: I would say Belladonna, but I know that’s not going to happen, haha. I’ll go with Digitalis.
Available for $13 each from OCC Makeup.
