Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics new Lip Tar is one lip product that is truly any beauty lovers dream.
Because they've actually managed to marry a lipstick, gloss and stain in one slick, moist, super-pigmented product, in an amazing array of colors! For you makeup artists, you'll also be happy to know that this lightweight, color can also stand up to Hi-Def Video and Digital Photography without looking or feeling heavy, dry or caked on.
With a word like "tar" in the product title, it certainly gives the impression of something thick that goes on and stays on - and that it does!
I tried a few shades, but two of my favorites were Plum (deep plum) and Pagent (deep fuchsia), which like all the lip tars, are meant to be mixed together. I loved this for a really pretty but bold pink lip. Out of the tube, the lip tar appeared like a thick liquid lip gloss. I started with just a touch on a lip brush, since it's so concentrated, and then built up and mixed from there (note: this runs very freely from the applicator tip, so don't put any pressure on the tube when applying it).
The second I applied it on my lips I knew this was a.) truly different b.) love at first swipe! The feel and formula immediately seemed to morph into a creamy, featherweight lipstick that was also glossy like a lip gloss, and moisturizing to boot. The finish was that of an opaque lip gloss and the staying power of this product was also phenomenal - it is a stain in the truest sense of the word - after eating I did just a tiny touch up, but otherwise the color and formula stayed true all day.
Plum and Pagent were two of my personal favorites - but if you're someone you likes to go much bolder and daring with your lips, they have some magnificent blues, greens, oranges, brighter pinks, super pale pastels and even black and yellow! - RLB
