Lip Obsession ! Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tars

As a makeup artist, I am always looking for the next best lip product. I'm in love with gloss, but was taken aback when I discovered this new innovation in a lip product! These new gems by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics called Lip Tar, are what a lip product is suppose to be! With the coverage of a lipstick and the application of a gloss, these pigmented colors, created the perfect satin finish!

I call myself putting it on like regular gloss, but oh no! It was so ultra saturated with pigment that all I needed was a pin size amount . A little goes a very long way! They are so true to color that you may even need to sheer it out, with a clear gloss or tinted gloss (as well as for more glossiness.

Makeup Artist, it's even great for Hi-Def Video and Digital Photography, without it looking heavy. The come in 9 different shades, and are meant to be mixed with the range of colors including (black, white and a clear mixer).
Here are the shades! Fans of Ruby Woo?, check out the NSFW (Red)it is amazing!!!!


Here are a picture of a few of the Lip Tars!

@what the pros do..

I do love them alot.. I thought of course it would be glossy..however to say gloss one would think glossy..
It appears glossy, but actualy dries down to a satin finish..and almost budgeproof... ehh..

So if you want more glossy look, I would definitely say add some gloss on top or mix it in.....

but they are sooo pigmented...

Hi There, I am so glad I came across this post! I was wondering is Pageant more fuschia or bubblegum pink? The site describes it as fuschia but it looks more bubblegummy on your hand. Any input would be greatly appreciated! xoxo

Hi I was wondering do you have any pics actually wearing the lip colors? I was thinking of getting the Uber and Pageant but im nervous that they are going to look quite different in person.

Thanks
