Today I finally tried one (yes I have 7) of my OCC Lip Tars! And I am in love :) It is all the things I heard it would be - Long lasting, Excellent color payoff and you only need the tiniest amount.
I would definitely recommend exfoliating your lips before applying as it will show all your dead skin bits. They also recommend applying clear lip tar first, but I found as long as I exfoliated and had a used a bit of balm like 20 minutes in advance it was fine.
Here it is swatched on my arm - I could not get a clear picture, excuse the blurriness:
And like the directions show it works best to apply it directly to the brush, you need a teeny, tiny amount. About the size of a large hex in a glitter polish :)
And the results - wa-lah:
It actually looks much more like the color of the swatch on my arm in real life - I took the pictures in 3 different kinds of light but my camera just couldn't seem to catch it, but you can see the lovely texture and coverage non the less. And it lasts and lasts, and than fades to a stain.
I will definitely be trying my other colors in the next few days.
Have you ever tried the Lip Tars and if so what is your favorite color?
