OCC Lip Tar Swatches in Traffic and Butch!

I know, I know, your thinking more lip tars, that's all you've been posting! But what can I say I'm addicted to them! I needed these for mixing! Lol.

Traffic and Butch

I have been trying to get my hands on Belladonna lip tar which has been discontinued and have had no luck! I decided I can try and mix my own colors to recreate that color. I found on the OCC facebook page where they said you can mix a bit of RX and Hoochie to get a similar color to Belladonna. Well every time I try and do that it comes out too blue, even using the tiniest amount! So I decided I needed to get Butch since it's a much lighter shade of blue I figured it would be easier to work with to get the shade I was trying to create. I also added Traffic to my order because why not?! :p

If your not familiar with Belladonna it is a Violet/purple shade. I think I did I pretty good job recreating the color. I mixed Butch, Narcissus, Pretty Boy, and the tiniest bit of Hoochie to get this color. I'm so loving violet lips right now! The weather has been so gorgeous I'm just ready for Spring and pastels already! That's California living for you though! :) 

Butch is no longer on the OCC website, I ordered mine from so get yours while you still can!

OCC Lip tars retail for $16.

What proportions(how many drops or mmls) of Butch, Narcissus, Pretty Boy, Hoochie did you use to achieve the Belladonna dupe shade? Thanks :)
