Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar Review and FOTD

It's been some time since my last post, please forgive me. I've been busy but I'm going to try to jump back into it. :)

I am behind on reviews if you can't tell, but bare with me. I'll get everything up as soon as I can.

I'm sure many of you have all heard about these but if you haven't then read on. :)

I picked up a few of these Lip Tars from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics at this years IMATS in Pasadena. I had read a lot of mixed reviews on these, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I thought I would give them a try for myself and base my own opinions on them.

Hoochie, Demure, and Anime

These are my new favorite lip products. I love bright bold lips so these have been perfect for me.

The pigment in these is amazing and intense. You need a small amount to cover your lips.

Tip: It's best to use a lip brush with these because if you try to apply it straight to your lips from the tube I imagine that would be way too much product. Start with a small amount and build up if needed.

I would say these are more of a liquid lipstick than a gloss because they are a satin/matte finish but I don't find them drying at all.

They also last all day.

They come in a ton of different colors, even your primary colors. You can mix them and create your own colors. You can get really creative with these.

The packaging is ok, but you have to be careful not to squeeze the tube too hard or it will come oozing out and will waste product. This is the only con I have with them.

These are $12.50 but I think that's a pretty good deal considering the little amount needed, they will last you a long time.

I will definitely get some more Lip Tars soon.

I'm wearing Hoochie here. Silly

Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream ~ Fuchsia

Make Up Forever recently launched some new products called Aqua Creams. They come in an array of shades from everyday neutrals to bold brights. They can be used on they eyes, lips, or cheeks and are waterproof.

I love bright pink lips, so I was really excited to try the new Aqua Cream in Fuchsia.

Some like #7 Fuchsia, are for lips and cheeks only as they are not eye safe.

You can't tell it has a gold shimmer in it till you swipe it.

These are are suppose to be long wearing and waterproof, and it did last all day for me, but that all day wear came at a price. It was SO drying! I mean it really dried out my lips. When I wore it again I added some lip balm before hand to help with the dryness but it still dried out my lips.

I also felt like I had to work quickly with it because it sets/dries quickly.

The consistency didn't even feel creamy to begin with.

I have continued to use it with various lip balms to find one to improve the consistency but it's just not working out.

The color is pretty but I was really disappointed with this one.

I really wanted to love it but I just didn't.

Have you tried these yet? How did it work out for you? Let me know in the comments.
