Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Hoochie - Review:

"Experience life in all possible ways. Good-bad, bitter-sweet, dark-light, Summer-Winter. Experience all the dualities. Don't be afraid of experience, because the more experience you have, the more mature you become."

- Osho

Hello beauties!! I'm so sorry for my lack of posts! I am so excited to tell you guys that I finally got my new camera!! A Canon T3i! I'm slowly learning how to use it so bear with me while I do :)

IMG_0029 Today's review is of OCC's lip tar in the shade Hoochie (how funny is that name!)... An absolutely perfect, wearable purple.

For those of you unfamiliar with lip tars, they are an incredibly unique product... Almost like a liquid lipstick. These come in a tube and must be applied with a lip brush (every lip tar comes with one).. They cost $18 at Sephora and OCC's website - Lip Tars come in TONS of colors and all different finishes - from matte, to metallic and even glosses! They are so much fun, you only need a tiny amount per application and one thing I absolutely adore about these is... You can mix shades to create your own!

Hoochie is a matte purple that leans either extremely purple or slightly purpley-pink-ish (yep, made up a word), depending on your skin tone.

IMG_9896You don't even need this much when applying! Lip tars will last you forever.

IMG_9898When you first apply, it goes on shiny and wet and then it dries to a matte finish.

IMG_9902How amazing is this color!?!

IMG_9905What you see is what you get :)

IMG_9907These last forever on the lips and leave a stain afterwards. This was after scrubbing my hand.

1898205_10153836303700392_841281816_n-1I highly suggest you apply lip tars with a lip liner. It just helps prevent any feathering - if you apply the right amount, you won't have a problem anyways but they can be hard to get the hang of at first so a lip liner can be a bit of an insurance policy, especially for beginners. In these photos above I used Jordana's easy liner lip liner in the shade Cabernet to darken the outer corners a little bit.

I wore this shade at work and it lasted ALL DAY! Even after eating. It got a little bit drying after maybe 5 or so hours but I also have to contribute that to the weather and my lips are just always dry in the winter..

Lip Tars can be tricky to apply and definitely take practice but I absolutely love them.... I pretty much want them all! They are on the more pricey side at $18 each but you need the tiniest amount so each tube will probably last you a lifetime.

Hoochie is literally the perfect purple shade. I'd wear this in absolutely any season. I'm obsessed!!

You can purchase lip tars via OCC's website or at Sephora - online and in stores!
