New OCC Lip Tars! Haul!

I'm sure many of you know my love for OCC lip tars, as I have many posts on them already, but I recently ordered a few on Cyber Monday and picked up a few from my Sephora.

On Cyber Monday I ordered Black Dahlia, Lydia, Yaoi, and I got Triptych for free which is the whole reason why I ordered! I plan on mixing this with everything! The new Metallurgy collection is amazing! I NEED them all! 

So onto my swatches. The first four swatched are the ones I picked up from Sephora.

I love love love these! I'm addicted to OCC Lip Tars! I honestly feel like I need no other lip product but these. If my entire MAC lipstick collection disappeared I would be ok as long as I had my lip tars. Yes they are that good!

Hush and Memento are more nude colors which I don't wear alone but they are great for mixing. Stalker and NSFW are both beautiful reds but I wouldn't say you need them both. Black Dahlia can be built up and deepened by adding more, but it can give you the most gorgeous stained lip look! Lydia is a nice everyday color, but I plan on using this and Triptych for mixing. Yaoi what can I say, bright metalic pink, I love it!  I know I've said this before but one of the big reasons I love lip tars is the ability to mix shades and create new ones. It is so easy to do as well. They are opaque, long lasting and have a nice minty scent. 

These new additions brings my lip tar collection to 20! I just ordered 4 more with my Sephora VIB $20 gift card though, so when they come I'll have 24! No I'm not ashamed! Lol

I will say though that at $16 each that can be pricey for some but a little product goes a long way! Use a pin size amount and work from there. You definitely need a lip brush. My fav is the Royal & Langnickel BC600 lip brush.

I can not recommend these enough! They are the best! 

If you go to IMATS stock up then because they usually sell them for $10 each, online they are $16.

Do you love OCC Lip Tars as much as I do? What are some of your favorite colors? Do you have any on your Christmas wish list?

Stalker, NSFW, Black Dahlia and triptych are my fave from the swatch. I am currently in love with Pretty boy OCC. I love how pigmented their products are.
